Hummingbird Inn - Easton gay Bed & Breakfast

Hummingbird Inn is located in the downtown historic district of the eastern shore town of Easton, MD. Situated in a circa 1865 Queen Anne Victorian on a beautiful 3/4 acre property, Hummingbird Inn aims to be more than just your standard B&B experience….more than just a place to sleep. We have 6 uniquely furnished large en-suite guestrooms which, while maintaining the Victorian charm, have also been upgraded to include the modern conveniences and amenities travelers expect. All rooms have a seating area from a comfortable set of chairs to a separate seating area in the Queen Anne Turret.

Rooms are equipped with a king or queen bed, HEPA air filtrations system, ceiling fans, central air conditioning/heating and some rooms have working fireplaces. All rooms have large bathrooms with heated towel racks, tile floors, unlimited hot water and high presser shower heads. Some bathrooms have a soaking clawfoot tub or a bubblejet juccuzi tub, and/or large shower room. We provide guests with ESA natural guest toiletries which are made using spa quality formulations, minimal preservatives and crafted vegetable based soaps.

We are a dog friendly B&B and also offer on-site dog sitting services. Now you and your guest can travel with your 4-legged pal, but enjoy a day or evening out and know that your pet is going to be well taken care of without the need to cut your time out short.

Our guests all enjoy spending time in the variety of common areas on the property such as the Guest Parlor with working fireplace and a separate sitting area in the Queen Ann Turret where we have a small lending library and a selection of board games and cards. There’s plenty of space on the grounds with a custom designed Victorian Garden under the giant Magnolia tree.

The highlight of the common areas is definitely the 1000 sq ft wrap around front porch. It’s double-width and integrated Bose sound system make an ideal setting for the ever popular “Porch Time”. Porch Time is a nightly event where you can sit outside on the porch, enjoy some nice music, the fresh air and more than likely find the Innkeeper enjoying some wine to be shared with guests. A great place to mingle, socialize and make new friends.

Every morning guests are treated to a gourmet 3-course sit down breakfast in the elegant Guest Dining room. Complete with unlimited freshly brewed coffee, fruit juices, Mimosa’s and our special Hummingbird Inn Bellini. When not enjoying the beauty, warmth, comfort and food at the B&B, there’s plenty to do in the quaint town of Easton or nearby surrounding towns such as St Michaels and Oxford. From the boutique shopping, to many of the water related activities to the wide variety of dining experiences. The area has everything from casual farm-to-table to Michelin rated fine dining.

Hummingbird Inn is 100% gay owned & operated and we extend a special welcome not only to our LGBTQ community, but their friends and families.

Christopher’s by the Bay – Provincetown Gay Bed and Breakfast

Christopher's by the Bay - Provincetown gay bed and breakfast

Periodically we’ll feature one of our properties here to let our readers know about some great gay friendly places to stay:

Perched at the northern edge of Cape Cod, between the sea and the sand of Provincetown’s Harbor, you’ll find a vibrant, gay friendly New England village called Provincetown. Our Provincetown gay bed and breakfast, Christopher’s by the Bay, is nestled in the heart of this historic Atlantic harbor town, on a quiet street in a beautiful mid-nineteenth century home.

We’re an easy walk from the east end art galleries, and just a short bicycle ride away from Herring Cove beach. Or maybe you’d rather stay put and relax in our quiet, beautiful garden. Provincetown is a unique and lovely place, from the warm sands of Race Point to the glimmering reflection of an autumn sunset over the bay.

Our home has a long and storied history – as a home to school teachers, artists, fishermen and sea captains. Many of Provincetown’s city records were destroyed in a fire in the 1920’s, so a lot of the history of the building has been lost. But more recent records show that it has been an inn since the 1970’s – originally called the Swanberry Inn, then Carpe Diem. The Inn has carried the current name, Christopher’s by the Bay, since 1999.

The namesake for the inn, Christopher Covelli, is an accomplished chef. He travels the world, teaching at a culinary school in Tuscany, practices his craft in Sarasota, Florida, and even competes in Iron Chef competitions.

Provincetown is the oldest ongoing art colony in the USA, and so we’ve named each of our guestrooms after one of the great artists: Michelangelo, Dali, O’Keefe, Van Gogh, Rembrandt, etc.

Your current hosts, Dave and Jim began visiting Provincetown on vacation a number of years ago, and loved the peace and tranquility in this little seaside village offers. After a number of visits, they decided to leave Washington DC in 2006 to fulfill their dream of owning a B&B.

Both Dave and Jim keep one foot in their former professional lives – Dave teaches Provincetown High School, and Jim continues to do leadership training and development for non-profits with Leadership Outfitters, Inc. But they also now enjoy baking, hosting guests and playing with the dogs on the beach each day in Provincetown!

Welcome to Provincetown and Christopher’s By The Bay it’s like nowhere else!
