About

Enjoy old world charm with modern day amenities in this 1840's manor on Maryland's Eastern Shore.

Explore Blackwater Wildlife Refuge, sail on the Skipjack Nathan, or stroll along the river and the quaint downtown area. If reading on the porch swing, or in front of the fireplace is your idea of the perfect weekend, you may never want to leave this Queen Anne-style inn with spacious guest rooms and private baths.

Eastern Shore Gem!

5 on August 21, 2014

Maryann and Bill have an absolutely charming B&B! The house is beautifully restored, my bedroom was spacious, and the bed extremely comfortable! And the breakfasts featured local produce- delectable!! Historic Cambridge is outside their door- sit on the beautiful wraparound porch and enjoy the peaceful ambiance, or walk a short block for great restaurants. This is the perfect location to stay in Cambridge!!


enjoyed our romantic getaway!

We planned a romantic getaway at this Bed and Breakfast We stayed in the Garden Room and romantic it was! View was beautiful, we enjoyed the slow pace of the area (though a little run down) many shops and restaurants in walking distance.

Lovely space both indoors and out. Great value and a great location.


Very Comfortable house and town

3.6 on July 30, 2014

We had a very nice two night stay at the Cambridge. MaryAnne and Jim were attentive but respectful of our privacy. Great porch, good breakfasts, only a block from the marina, and easy walk to town center. Small town but good variety of shops and restaurants. Blackwater Nature Reserve is relatively close and very interesting, if you Ike Bald Eagles, ospreys, and lots of birds, in season. Enjoyed our stay!


A Lovely Inn on the Eastern Shore

Jim and Marianne are wonderfully warm hosts. The inn is well appointed and situated within walking distance of shopping and dining.


Average B&B

2.8 on July 23, 2014

Cambridge House B&B is in a wonderful location for daily outings along the Chesapeake Bay. Unfortunately it lacked the little niceties that I have come to anticipate with a B&B stay. Things like evening treats, fresh cut flowers and lovely gardens to enjoy morning coffee. The inside of the house is lovely and well-appointed, just missing the little extras. Breakfasts were OK, nothing spectacular.


Outstanding

We had a wonderful stay at Cambridge House. Walking distance to anything you want to do downtown or on the water, knowledgeable and friendly owners, tastefully decorated and a quiet night's sleep! We couldn't ask for more. Thank you for having us.


Laid Back

This was my second stay there. Love the home and the decorating and furnishings make you feel like you are stepping back in time. Very relaxing and stress free stay. Loved it!
