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.

Wonderful place

5 on July 23, 2014

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

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.

Great Location

The best thing about our stay was relaxing in the adirondack chairs in the backyard looking out over the wide expanse of the Choptank River. The room was very nice and the breakfast good. Without asking, the owners seated us with another couple at breakfast. Fortunately they were enjoyable company. Overall, the lodge is pricey compared to other B&B's with more amenities.

Lovely stay

Thanks to wonderful hosts who are both attentive and non-intrusive, we had a peaceful, relaxing, and beautiful stay at Lodgecliffe. Sunset over the bay from our Adirondack chairs was the highlight. Breakfast was homemade and delicious. Thank you!

The Lodgecliffs is a Gem!

4.8 on May 07, 2014

This place is wonderful and both the hostesses went above and beyond my expectations! As soon as I arrived, I felt welcomed and a huge relief swept over me. The Lodgecliffs of the Choptank is a peaceful, serene beautiful retreat and I couldn't have asked for better accommodations. I even stayed an extra night than planned because I didn't want to leave. I can't wait to come back! Thank you very much.

Solo at Lodgecliffe

3.8 on March 16, 2014

I was the only guest on a warm weekend in February and loved it! I was looking for a quiet retreat in a relaxed atmosphere and I sure did get it. No doilies, innkeepers chatted when I wanted to, breakfast was delicious, and I was made welcome to curl up on the sofa and watch TV. I felt like a guest in a friend's home. Great walking by the river right out the front door! And, no religious icons anywhere in sight. Lodgecliffe is a breath of fresh air on the B&B circuit.
