My friend and I went back to the Whitehaven in June, having been there 4 years ago. It's charming, comfortable, quiet as can be. We walked around the town and enjoyed the bird song and, for me anyway, the brackish smell of the marshes. The breakfast was lots of fun with the other guests. Except that my friend was awakened by a strange noise, we had a wonderful visit, and I'll go back in a second.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Whitehaven Hotel is a beautifully restored, historical Bed & Breakfast nestled on the Wicomico River with two docks for visiting boaters and sits beside a 300 year old Ferry (said to be the oldest in the Continental United States). It is a scenic 20 minute ride to Salisbury, Princess Anne or 45 min. ride to the Maryland beaches, but "who needs beaches with our views" and Maryland crabs waiting to be opened and savored only a few minutes down the road. The Whitehaven Hotel provides kayaks and bikes for its guests, I might add that the kayaking is unique with many vistas and waters ways to investigate, while our property is a sanctuary for birds. On any given day you may see eagles, osprey, purple martins, heron, hawks, red winged black birds, humming birds and many more species. It's a gem of a find. Our motto "Enter as Guests and leave as Friends." ... more less
