R and R at the Lazyjack Inn

We recently had a relaxing stay. The Innkeepers were friendly and communicative yet not intrusive. They shared extensive knowledge about the area and gave wonderful suggestions when we inquired. We will return.

Totally worth every penny

We enjoyed our stay. The innkeepers were extremely friendly and gave us great recommendations on where to eat and interesting things to do. The breakfasts were delicious and pretty healthy as well. The rooms were nicely decorated and spotless. The innkeeper even dried our wet clothes from our kayaking excursion for us!

Outstanding Stay at the Lazy Jack B&B

5 on July 16, 2015

We recently enjoyed a 3 night stay at the Lazy Jack B&B on Tilghman Island. Our room, the Nellie Byrd, was gorgeous & relaxing. Beautiful view of the water & Dogwood Harbor where you could watch the Watermen bring in their catch of the day. Comfortable King Bed, very clean accommodations, relaxing jacuzzi after a day of sightseeing & shopping, plus excellent & delicious breakfasts served by Carol & Capt Mike. Both Carol & Mike were great story tellers & knowledgable about the history of Tilghman Island & the Chesapeake Bay. We also went on the Chesapeake Lighthouse Cruise with Capt Mike, which was fabulous. The Inn is located close to nice restaurants & in walking distance to the great Tilghman Island General Store. We stay at B&Bs quite often & found the Lazy Jack to be one of the best with outstanding rooms, delicious food & very friendly, accommodating Innkeepers. Definitely on our list for a return visit¿¿

A Delightful Stay

We had a wonderful stay at the Lazyjack Inn. The whole inn was beautifully decorated with wonderful views of the harbor and our room was spacious and very comfortable. The hosts, Carol and Mike, made our stay so much better with helpful advice on the area and wonderful breakfasts. Their welcoming manner made us feel we were visiting old friends. We were very sad to leave and hope to return someday.

Lovely and delicious

We had a wonderful weekend at the Lazyjack Inn. The inn is truly lovely -- a very inviting place to relax and unwind, with comfortable furniture and great views. And the breakfasts were incredible! We really enjoyed it.

Wonderful experience, beautiful home!

We visited the end of 3/2015 and had a wonderful time! This was our first time in the area and thoroughly enjoyed touring St. Michael's shop by shop! My husband loved the Maritime Museum and spent several hours there! Our rooms at the Inn were wonderful, spacious, a beautiful view of the water, and very clean. My sister and her husband were with us and were just as pleased. The meals were wonderful and Mike and Carol were great hosts with so many interesting stories! We enjoyed wine by the fireplace with them one evening and had many laughs! All four of us highly recommend the inn and will return in warmer weather!

A must for couples getting away from it all!

My wife and I spent our 19th wedding anniversary and had a wonderful time. While the town is off the beaten path, it is a great place to get away. The room was beautiful, the location allowed us to watch the sunrise. We would visit again.
