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.

Julie was fantastic. The room was beautiful and the grounds on the water are majestic.

My wife and I spent one night at the Lodgecliffe on Nov 1, 2015. It was lovely. Our room faced the Choptank River and we walked out onto the deck and sat there looking at it for quite a while. Everything was so quiet and peaceful. Our host Juli was friendly and helpful. She directed us to a good restaurant in the evening and fixed us a fabulous breakfast the next morning. Her scones were just marvelous. My mouth is watering now just recalling them.

My husband and I have been eyeing up Lodgecliffe on the Choptank as a wedding venue for years. It is the only waterfront bed and breakfast in Cambridge where I have family and the venue is just beautiful. I had gotten a lot of quotes about other waterfront venues on the Shore and without a doubt Lodgecliffe was the most affordable. Working with Juli was so wonderful. She really cared about making our day special and personalized to us. We lived out of town and she was always an email or call away to answer any questions or offer suggestions. She made the long-distance wedding planning process so easy for us! It was so nice to know that we were getting married and working with people who cared about us and didn't think of us as just the 29th wedding they were doing that year like some other places. We had free reign of the place from Friday to Sunday. Juli and her mother Fran couldn't have been more helpful. They offered to help set up flowers and make sure things were in place on our wedding day when we would obviously be occupied. Not only that but they place was beautiful. The rooms were amazing, all of our guests that stayed their were so happy. They all complimented Juli and Fran's wonderful cooking as well! I can't sing enough praises for Lodgecliffe and Juli & Fran! If you are thinking about having a wedding there I'd say go for it. All of our guests were amazed by the venue and that sunset on the water can't be beat! If you are just looking for a special place to stay Lodgecliffe is that as well!

We stayed at the Lodgecliff for the first time this week. Be assured it will NOT be 8the last. The Innkeeper, Juile and her mom are the most friendly Innkeepers I have ever met. The breakfasts are a marvelous start to your day. The sunsets are the perfect ending. When you are there, you must meet "Ladybug", the official "Greater of the Inn". She is the cuteist, most lovingly, playful little girl. Even though Juile has only operated the Inn for a short time, her talents are natural. They are making improvements to the Inn, and they welcome suggestions. I highly recommend the Lodgecliff for you next stay in the Cambridge, Oxford, Easton or St. Micheals area.

Lodgecliffe is a beautiful B&B on the water. It is very quiet and away from the town of Cambridge. The food and innkeepers were wonderful.

My wife and I had a very enjoyable stay. Julie and her mom Fran are great inn keepers and made sure we were comfortable. The homemade scones were very good and so was breakfast. They helped us find some great places to eat downtown. We stayed in the captains room. It was nicely decorated and the bed was very comfortable. Beautiful views from the back deck of the Choptank River. We can't wait to come back.

I came to Lodgecliffe with a few friends for a last minute short get away. The innkeeper and her mother were lovely and the place was a perfect retreat from the city. Thank you for a great weekend.

My husband and I stayed at Lodgecliff on the Choptank on May 11 - 13, 2015. The Inn was beautifully decorated, the beds comfortable, service exceptions, and breakfast delicious. Staying with Julie and Fran was very comfortable - like staying with family. Fran's scones are to die for!! Julie offers daily service to the room which we declined, but was available if wanted. While my husband played golf at a local course I sat under s beautiful tree in the back, near the river, watching osprey and reading s book. This was a delightful place to stay when a few quiet, relaxing days are what you need. The town of Cambridge is quite close, not a whole lot to do there, but the 2 restaurants we went to we're good. We'd come back and stay with Julie and Fran any time!

A perfect long weekend get-away! The Inn Keepers Juli and Fran were pleasant, friendly, had great local knowledge of the surrounding areas, and recommendations for wonderful meals. The Inn was immaculate, a perfect mix of old and new. A glass of wine awaited our arrival, which was very nice while sitting out back enjoying the view. Breakfast was a tasty, filling start to the day with homemade scones that melted in your mouth. No complaints with the exception that we had to come home.

Rooms were pricey but very nice. The inn very nice place to hang out and very peaceful grounds. Place was very clean, only rated it average b/c room was not cleaned daily as you might expect in such a high end inn. Breakfasts very good. Excellent homemade shortbread cookies out at all times, and a variety of beverages, cold and hot. Book in room had very outdated info. Innkeepers very accommodating and helpful and friendly. Linens and towels very soft and comfy.
