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.

We just spent 2 nights at the Lodgecliffe and loved it! The caretakers were extremely friendly and accommodating. My wife is not big on bed and breakfasts that are staged with dated decor so we were excited to see that this was not the case. The views from our room facing the water were beautiful. It was cold and windy so we spent quite a bit of time inside but enjoyed it nevertheless. They always made sure we were cozy and had all we need to relax and enjoy ourselves. We will absolutely come back and tell others about it.

We loved our weekend stay at Lodgecliffe with some dear friends of ours. I tried to put in Outstanding for some of the categories but it wouldn't let me - so let me say here that the Service was Outstanding! Juli and her mom were gracious hostesses and made us feel so comfortable and welcome! The B&B is spotless and beautiful. The breakfast was wonderful - yummy scones, a wonderful fruit dish with homemade yogurt and a delicious quiche that Juli and her mom made! We loved every minute of our stay - except when we had to leave! The six of us hope to come back again soon!

We stayed one night at Lodgecliffe while our daughter was visitng Salisbury University about 40 minutes away. Our stay overall was fantastic. This B&B is directly on the Choptank River near the mouth of the Chesapeake, so the views are awesome. We were in the Captain's Room on the first floor. For some it may be a privacy issue as it is right next to the front entrance. We were the only guests for the night, so it was not an issue for us. The room and Inn interior are great, clean and well kept. Don't let the exterior fool you (it needs a little maintenance), the interior is as depicted in the photos. Our hosts were very friendly and accomodating. Our breakfast was fantastic and provided more food than other B&B's that we have visited in the past. We plan to return in the future.

Lodgecliffe worked as a convenient location for visiting the eastern shore area. We loved coming "home" each evening. The rooms are spacious and pleasantly decorated. Juli was a delight and her knowedge of the area helped to make our stay enjoyable. I and my two travel companions enthusiastically recommend Lodgecliffe.

We stayed here 20 years ago under Sarah Richardson's hostessing, she was 85 yo then. We stayed again last year under new propietors and the food was incredible and the renovations were really top notch. We stayed again this year, and give our best kudo's to the new proprietors. Scottish scones and great food again. The area is great for outdoor enthusiasts...biking, kayaking, birding etc.

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!
