We arrived a little worn, but were immediately warmly welcomed by both Tom & Tiffany. Our room was lovely, overlooking the SouthRiver, dock, lawn and the resident bluebirds nesting close by. Laurel Grove Inn was just the tonic we needed and we will return repeatedly in future years.

Fantastic Sister Vacation

5 on February 27, 2016

We had rented this B&B for a wedding and also a sister vacation. There were 8 sisters, but one couldn't make it because of health reasons. Ages ranged for 65 t0 86. Tiffany and her husband were the greatest hosts we had ever met. So accommodating to our needs. Breakfast was fantastic. The home was fabulous located directly on the river with awesome views. The rooms were exceptionally nice and with views. Common areas were spacious. Atmosphere relaxing. Hosts were so accommodating that on our last night as we were relaxing in the living room, Tiffany came in with some cookies that she had just baked. We would all highly recommend the B&B. Thanks Perfect Hosts!!!

Wonderful stay!

I've been here twice now and everyone I bring loves it! It feels like you're staying with a relative rather than in a stranger's bed and breakfast. The beautiful view can't be beat. It's very relaxing and quiet. I would definitely recommend this place to a friend!

A hidden gem plus a charming host!

The rooms as well as the view are absolutely lovely. The owner has taken the time to think about all the little details. Everything was spotless. The kitchen and snacks as well as drinks were readily available. Breakfast was wonderful. My husband needs low carbs and low sugar due to being diabetic and there were plenty of choices. The resident pets are also comical. Tiffany is charming.

Twice we have gone to Annapolis specifically to stay at Laurel Grove and are talking about a 3rd visit. The Arundal Suite is large, beautifully decorated, 2 large bathrooms, designer robes, etc. Tiffany and Tom are so warm and friendly. She is a fabulous cook. You can't wait for breakfast! Our only regret is that we didn't hear about Laurel Grove sooner!

Wonderful B&B

Had a great stay. The inn is a unique setup and promotes a friendly, relaxing environment. Would definitely recommend to others as long as they do not have any pet allergies.
