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.

Lovely and Peaceful

5 on July 13, 2014

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!

A great stay at Lodgecliffe

This B & B was welcoming, spacious, comfortable, and had wonderful outdoor space. The breakfasts were absolutely incredible! It was a perfect spot to be to relax. Our innkeepers, Kathryn and Autumn, were friendly and fabulous cooks!

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

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.

Perfect romantic getaway!

For our first b&b experience, my boyfriend and I couldn't have picked a more perfect place. To begin, our room was relaxing and nicely decorated-not like many of the b&bs you normally see with lots of doilies and such. We felt very comfortable! Now to mention, you want to pick the Zen room, as it's the very with access to the back porch. Our hostesses were amazing. Autumn and Kathryn are welcoming and very relaxed, while still being attentive! We really enjoyed them a lot. Also, the cooking was outstanding - definitely fit for foodies! All local and all so delicous. The yogurt and coffee were stellar, and the rest of it was equally mouthwatering. Overall, our stay there helped major for an amazing weekend. I'd not only highly recommend Lodgecliffe, I plan to go back myself!!

Amazing Accommodations and Hosts!!

There is not enough room here to articulate the surreal, incredible time we had. To start, the Inn is completely charming, cozy, and incredibly comfortable. It was beautifully adorned with Holiday decorations and exuded comfort and serenity from the second we arrived. The Inn could not have been more inviting. The room was clean, the room decor was soothing (we stayed in the Zen room), the bed was amazingly comfortable (as were the sheets), and we often debated whether we actually wanted to leave the room at all! The view from our room was phenomenal! We had a door that opened directly to the back porch, and provided incredible views of the large river. Even though it stormed and snowed while we stayed there, we appreciated the quiet, comfortable, and cozy beauty that the Lodgecliffe afforded. The cuisine was terrific! As numerous other reviewers pointed out, the coffee was sensational, and the breakfasts were absolutely delectable! We enjoyed various homemade meals. All of the yogurt, whipped toppings, and other dairy were from local farms. While my boyfriend is an omnivore, I am a vegetarian. The Innkeepers accommodated us both...perfectly. This is a nice segue to what I have saved for last. Autumn and Kathryn were absolutely perfect. We had never stayed in a B and B before, and therefore didn't know what to expect. Of course we had an idea of what to expect, but I can sincerely say that Autumn and Kathryn went above and beyond to ensure that we enjoyed our stay...and exceeded what we ever could have thought possible. As many other reviewers mentioned, they were extremely respectful of our privacy, while ensuring we had everything we needed and wanted. In conclusion, we could not recommend the Lodgecliffe more highly. We immediately fell in love with it, the Innkeepers, and our experience. Again...special thanks to the lovely Autumn and Kathryn. We can't wait to see you again soon!! -Angela and Chris
