Don't pass this place up!

We have stayed in many BBs--it's a good way to get to know the area from "insiders"-- but the Mill Street Inn was one of the best places we've visited. The house is immaculate yet inviting, full of homey touches such as board games, local newspapers, and overstuffed comfy chairs with soft blankets draped along the back in case a nap is imminent. The breakfasts are delicious, and feature local ingredients. The pecans in the pecan pancakes are from the backyard! The hosts are friendly, knowledgeable about the area, and so incredibly interesting to talk to. They make no demands on the guests, yet are available to talk or answer questions at a moments' notice. Their stories about the house, the town, and their lives are fascinating. But they also take an interest in their guests. Many of the guests are return visitors -- we plan to be among that group in the future. Mark and Shelley Lakshmanan, Indiana

Beautiful house, lovely home-made breakfasts, warm hosts. Jennie and Skip are most friendly and accommodating. The room was very comfortable, with every detail and amenity attended to. We highly recommend a stay here.


Wonderful Stay!!

4.2 on May 19, 2016

Just returned from a wonderful stay at the Mill Street Inn! The inn keepers, Skip and Jenny are wonderful kind people and really made it special. The room was updated yet filled with beautiful antiques and the bathroom was huge! The extra big bathtub was fantastic! The inn keepers provide take home note cards of the Inn and small splits of wine and truffles. Nice touches. All and all a wonderful stay and can't wait to go back!!


A B&B you will Enjoy

4.4 on May 17, 2016

A gracious house, with friendly inn-keepers. Gourmet breakfasts, new menu each day. Four comfortable rooms on the first floor are open to guests. The Cambridge suite includes a large bedroom and sitting room. The bath is luxurious! It was ideal for me as the house is quiet.


A one night visit

4.4 on January 12, 2016

We arrived around 4 and were greeted by the owners who provided a walk through of the facility that made us feel welcome and cared for. The rooms were gracious and spacious. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom had all the amenities including robes for use in the morning. There are no coffee pots in the room and coffee service begins at 7:30, a small inconvenience for an early riser. Breakfast was elegant and simple. We would gladly return.

Innkeeper Response
We're glad that, all things considered, you enjoyed your brief stay. Sorry the coffee wasn't early enough; if you make a return visit, just let us know how early you would like coffee. We do our best to accommodate our guests' wishes, within reason. We would be happy to have you here again. Happy New Year. Jennie


Gracious and Engaging

Jennie and Skip are gracious, welcoming and engaging hosts who clearly love what they do and love their community. The B&B is beautifully decorated, and the gourmet breakfasts are outstanding, with a unique menu for each day. Their home is within an easy walk of the Choptank River and historic downtown. We appreciated their recommendations, advice and insights, which made our visit to Cambridge even more enjoyable.


Great Stay!

We visited Cambridge to celebrate our wedding anniversary and had a wonderful relaxing time. We like to walk and the Inn is located perfectly for walking to town or down to the boat dock and lighthouse. Jennie and Skip are delightful hosts who can provide many stories about and places to visit on the eastern shore. We will be back!


Stay During Six Pillars Century

4.0 on May 06, 2015

My wife and I had signed up for the Six Pillar Century bike ride, and I booked the Mill Street Inn as it looked convenient. It was an excellent choice, as it was only 6 blocks from the start of the ride. More importantly, the hosts were gracious, efficient, and the room (Winifred) was exceptional. Finally, this inn is walking distance from the harbor and downtown Cambridge, and the visit left us thoroughly restored, We highly recommend this B&B.

The Mill Street Inn is beautiful, every detail is there to make guests comfortable and welcome.


Great Experience for a First Timer

5 on March 20, 2015

The hosts were very kind and helpful. The whole house was nicely decorated and comfortable. I was reminded in many ways of my grandparents house which was filled with antique furniture and rugs. The location is within easy walking distance of the center of town, the water, and a number of restaurants. Breakfast was delicious. It was a relaxing experience. I would stay again and have already recommended it one of my sisters.
