We have stayed in B&Bs all over the world, and few places can rival the innate grandeur of this Federal Period home, or the hospitality of its owners, Fran and Doug. We felt like we were staying in Mt. Vernon or Monticello – the home has such majestic proportions – huge windows, high ceilings, detailed woodwork and very tasteful decoration. Fran and Doug made us feel immediately at home with glasses of wine and a cheese plate, then helped us make reservations at the very fun Blue Dog Cafe (which lives up to its reputation!) After dinner, we spent the evening quietly reading on comfortable leather chairs in the living room, and then retired to a too-comfortable bed that made it hard to get up in the morning. But breakfast made rising worth while – Doug is such an attentive host and prepared everything to our taste. Fran was just amazing at anticipating every need.
We have already fallen in love with the kayaking in Snow Hill (Pocomoke Canoe Company is the best!) and now that we have found the ideal B&B in town, I know that several visits a year (to see the river in every season) will be penciled into our calendars with happy anticipation.
