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.

Too short, but sweet!

We took an overnight trip to the Eastern Shore and I'm so glad we found the Mill Street Inn! The hosts are a lovely couple and couldn't have been more hospitable. Breakfast was delicious. I hope for a chance to visit again.

Wonderful house run by a wonderful couple

4.8 on February 24, 2015

My girlfriend and I stayed here for Valentine's Day weekend in 2015, as our 'home base' for weekend explorations around Cambridge, MD and the Blackwater Wildlife Refuge. We loved our stay here - everything about it! The room was warm and cozy (we had the Edward Room), the bathroom was spacious and clean (including a fantastic traditional bathtub), and the overall house was a pleasure to explore and relax in after our day's activities. Jennie and Skip were both excellent hosts, preparing scrumptious breakfasts and casually sitting down with us to chat and enjoy coffee together. We felt very at home in their presence. We absolutely plan to return here for a summer trip to Cambridge - can't wait! (Do note that they have two well-behaved cats. It wasn't a problem at all, but something to note if allergies are a concern.)

Innkeeper Response
Thank yu for the very nic review. We enjoy our guests, and we look forward to a return visit! (Just a word re: the kitties for anyone concrerned re: allergies. They are noted on the website, and they are sequestered in our quarters -- so have never been in "inn" space. ) Thanks, again! Jennie

Lovely stay!

We spent a very nice night at the Mill Street Inn. The owners sat and talked to us at breakfast and told us a lot about the history (and current politics) of the town, which was interesting. They suggested we go to see the ducks in the water a few blocks away, showed us photos so we could identify the different varieties, and gave us corn to feed the ducks. They were very helpful and accommodating. The breakfast was big and delicious, and they accommodated our dietary restrictions. The cookies they set out in the hall were delicious as well! We would definitely recommend this B&B.

Review of Mill Street Inn

5 on January 02, 2015

My husband and I have been to many B & B's. This is one of the most updated B & B's while maintaining its historic charm. It is also one of the most beautiful and cleanest B & B's. The hosts, Jennie and Skip, were very warm and provided suggestions and tips on where to go and what to do. I'd highly recommend staying there.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for kind words. I'm not sure to whom I'm responding, but we're grateful for nice comments, and appreciative guests make innkeeping a pleasure.
