Built in 1898, Lodgecliffe is a gracious turn-of-the-century country home perched on a bluff overlooking the wide expanse of the lower Choptank River. In 2005, each of our three guest suites was beautifully renovated and a large deck and screen porch were added taking full advantage of its stunning river setting. We invite you to experience the delight, charm, romance and relaxation that is Lodgecliffe.

Fabulous BnB with lovely views!

4.8 on August 14, 2014

This BnB was a lovely place with fabulous views and extremely nice innkeepers. The rooms were lovely and not over decorated; the beds were great and the sheets were divine. The lodge itself is very comfortable and has a wonderful porch and deck with fab views to the river. We even went swimming off the steps at the lodge. But of all the great amenities and location, the best gift was the breakfasts! Both Kathy and Autumn make a real effore to make you feel at home and one of the nicest features is their wonderful breakfast dishes. Delicious, delicious! Thoroughly enjoyed this visit and would come back again!

So relaxing! Enjoyed every minute of our stay.

The views of the water are stunning. The rooms are lovely. Everything about our stay was pleasant and relaxing. The breakfast out on the screened in porch overlooking the water was perfect. We will be back for sure. Thank you!

charming place, but...

Nice room indeed. Very pleasant hosts. However, we vere very surprized that the room was not cleaned during our stay, Our bathroom was not cleaned either during our stay and the trash cans were full. There was no cookies baked in the afternoon, so I think this would be good to remove this statement from the book in the room. Breakfasts were different every day. I liked them all except one day where everything was too greasy for me. but it could be my personal taste. Overall, we liked the place, but we are disapointed we did not see that much of our guests, and that our room was a mess.

We couldn't be more impressed. The view out back is stunning -peaceful and quiet. Water lapping against the shore, ospreys putting on air shows -wow. Coupled with Autumn and Kathryn as such kind, gracious hosts AND cook a MEAN, out of this world breakfast! We were powered up for a full day of kayaking and playing in the sun after sipping on great coffee & Mediterranean scramble full of organic goodies from their garden & those muffins!!! Cannot say enough good things about this b&b and the hosts who run it. Go Visit!!

What's not to like!

Comfortable, well appointed quarters and facilities with loads of traditional character. Hosts could not be more accommodating. Food was ample, stylishly served and of highest quality.

The best part of this property is the view. The hosts were non-existence from the time of the reservation, never answered phones, were not present at check-in -left note on front door, not present at check out. Never saw them. They were nice enough to leave breakfast on the table, since we missed the set breakfast time of 8:30. The property was clean, but worn and just plain odd. There were barking dogs behind a closed door in kitchen. I just felt like I was intruding on someone's private home. Weird.

Wonderful place

It's hard to find a B&B near St. Michael's that has two beds for two friends and does not cater only to a romantic couple. Lodgecliffe is that place. (There are rooms for that romantic couple too!) Sarah's Loft has two comfortable queen size beds and is plenty big enough for two to spread out. A view of the water from the room is a bonus. A welcoming glass of wine and cookies was a real surprise, and the delicious organic gourmet breakfast set us up perfectly for a day of sightseeing. The innkeepers were gracious, friendly yet unobtrusive. We felt at home enjoying the deck overlooking the Choptank River, and we both agreed we would visit again.

Wonderful 4th of July Visit

4.2 on July 23, 2014

We had a wonderful visit over the 4th of July. It was so amazing to be able to sit in Adirondack chairs read and watch the water. A great place to recharge and a quick trip from D.C.

Lovely and Peaceful

What a wonderful gem on the Chesapeake! Right on the banks of the Choptank River, our room opened onto the expansive deck offering beautiful views and awesome sunsets! The breakfast was delicious and the coffee rich. Wine was available all day as well as soft drinks and of course afternoon tea. Our hosts were delightful and attentive to our needs. The only thing I saw that needed attention would be the front of the house as you arrive... but step inside and you are not disappointed! Cambridge is a lovely but quiet town with wonderful restaurants and a few shops. There is also a lighthouse you can tour. But Annapolis is only an hour away and St Michael's is even closer. We plan to return!!

We love Lodgecliffe!

This is a wonderful B&B. We have stayed here at least three times. The location is beautiful - right on the Choptank with an incredible view - and the breakfast in the morning can't be beat! We love just lounging around or heading out to Cambridge and beyond to explore.
