River House Inn - Gay Owned Bed & Breakfast in Snow Hill, Maryland

NATIONAL REGISTERED VICTORIAN B&B

Enjoy a casual, elegant getaway at the River House Inn Bed and Breakfast, a spacious National Register Victorian home on the beautiful Pocomoke River on Maryland’s Eastern Shore.

Our Maryland bed and breakfast is located in the village of Snow Hill, where you can be as active or relaxed as you choose – thee are so many possibilities. The area is rich in history and natural beauty, with antiquing, kayaking, boating, beautiful beaches, nature preserves, cycling, swimming, fishing and golf al outside your front door.

We’re just 45 minutes from the Assateague National Seashore and Ocean City, Maryland. Snow Hill, Maryland, was incorporated in 1686 – a picturebook of architectural treasures. Take a walking tour of the village along old brick sidewalks, down picturesque streets, past more than a hundred homes that have passed the 100 year mark.

The Eastern Shore towns of Chincoteague, Assateague, Ocean City and Crisfield, with its boats to Smith and Tangier Island, are only about 30 minutes away.

You can even rent a canoe or kayak just one block from the Inn to explore on the wild, scenic Pocomoke River. And the Chesapeake Bay is close by, too – perfect for sailing and motor cruising.

Black Walnut Point Inn - Gay Owned Bed & Breakfast in Tilghman, Maryland

PRIVATE RETREAT ON TILGHMAN ISLAND

By any measure, Black Walnut Point on Maryland’s Tilghman Island is unique. A private gate and a half-mile drive through fifty seven acres of bird sanctuary leads you to a natural paradise and our six-acre island of lawn.

As the sun rises over the Choptank River and sets over the length of Chesapeake Bay, you’ll enjoy sea breezes, ocean waves and endless gorgeous water views.

Our property is chock-full of wildlife – a pair of nesting eagles, osprey and black ducks, migrating butterflies, water fowl and singing birds. You may even see dolphins, skates and schools of bluefish out on the bay. And the back dock, looking out over the cove, is the perfect place to watch the herons fish.

At night, our Maryland sky is full of stars, another surprise of nature, making Black Walnut Point a quiet, secret, peaceful place just an hour by car from the Chesapeake Bay Bridge.
