My wife and I spent two nights at Lodgecliffe and we're very happy we chose them. It was a wonderful stay. The Lodecliffe was right on the water and had a magnificent view of the Choptank River. The room was clean and spacious. The only complaint about the room was the shower was a little tight. Not much room in it. Juli and her mom were exceptional innkeepers. When you stay there they will hopefully have their blueberry muffins as part of the breakfast. These were to die for delicious! The whole breakfast was awesome! Very fresh ingredients. The B&B is very quiet and was such a relaxing experience. I can't say enough about Juli. Her attention to serving the customer is next to none. You can tell she really cares about you and your stay! Lokking forward to going back!

A great place in a perfect setting. A very relaxing place on the Choptank river. Great sunrises and sunsets. The innkeepers were the best people we have ever met at a B&B. Tea, coffee and homemade cookies await you when you arrive. There is complimentary wine and soda in the fridge. Everything is high class without being pretentious.

The Lodgecliff on the Choptank was all we had hoped for and much more! Our room was amazing, the view of the river spectacular and our hosts made us feel like a part of their family! The lovely breakfast topped it all off as completely perfect. We hope to return!

We spent two lovely nights at Lodgecliffe. The hosts were friendly and generous in sharing their recommendations and knowledge of the area. We also ordered the roses and champagne package, which was well done. (Ok, the chocolates could be better.) The grounds and decks are spacious, and the view across the water unsurpassed. The breakfasts were and well done, and not overdone in portion size or high calorie ingredients as at many B&Bs. We also discovered that Cambridge has a very interesting and important history in the abolitionist and civil rights movement, and is the center of the Harriet Tubman trail. The museum is interesting.

My husband & I stayed a Saturday night along with 3 of our friends. Juli & Fran were delightful, and the accommodations, location, and breakfast were all wonderful! (Ummm, those warm vanilla scones!!) Highly recommended - we are already looking forward to a return visit!

This beautifully restored turn of the century home speaks volumes of its past when you enter the front door! The Inn Keepers are in tune with the needs of the clients; the breakfast experience while sitting comfortably in a screened in porch is nothing short of magnificent. Enjoy you fresh food while overlooking the beautiful Choptank River. Where else can total strangers feel so comfortable in their surroundings that they mingle, laugh, and share life tales? I can't wait for the opportunity to go back. 'Tis a magical place in our stressed out world!

I stayed at Lodgecliffe during the week, thereby being the only guest. The Zen room was lovely opening to the back deck. I spent much time under the shade of a lovely tree reading and looking at the water. The new innkeepers are very caring, flexible and friendly. I look forward to a return visit.

This was my first stay at a BnB. I had traveled extensively for many years but never stayed at a BnB before. If all BnB's are near the wonderful accommodation that Lodgecliffe is I have been missing plenty. Because of this stay I will now only stay at BnB's. Lodgecliffe is an Inn to compare all others by. I have been fortunate enough to have stayed in the very best for my first BnB stay. Nothing, except home, can be any better than Lodgecliffe. Thank you Fran and Julie, especially for the hard candies (lol).
