Our c. 1855 waterfront home, located in the village of unspoiled Tilghman Island Maryland, is within walking distance to fine restaurants and shops. The Lazyjack Inn has earned a reputation as one of the Chesapeake's finest getaway destinations. Our guest rooms are comfortably elegant, appointed with personal treasures and original art with our guests' comfort in mind. Spectacular water views abound from the East Room and the luxurious Nellie Byrd Suite as well as our sunny back deck and the Harbor Room where a gourmet breakfast is served including freshly baked specialties.
THE NELLIE BYRD SUITE: The Premier Suite. Wonderfully spacious, with a captivating view over Dogwood Harbor and The Choptank River. This grand room with cathedral ceilings is appointed with a king brass bed, fireplace and antique persian carpets. The luxury bath/dressing area features glamorous white and black tile, an oversized jacuzzi tub, glass shower and rich furnishings. You may never wish to leave!
THE GARDEN SUITE: A beautiful space for retreat. Filled with rich detail that lends itself to your ‘down time’ including hand painted furnishings, queen bed and two-sided glass fireplace. Unwind in the oversize jacuzzi tub of the bath suite, step down into the lovely sitting room and surround yourself with a beautiful view of the gardens.
THE EAST ROOM: Bathed in sunlight and history, character and comfort. Ensconced in the historic portion of the Inn, this water view room offers the warmth of original heart of pine floors and exposed ceiling beams. Decorated in subtle colors that speak to the beauty of our sunrises and featuring an antique queen bed, sitting area and of course private bath.
THE WEST ROOM: Sunny 'french country' retreat. Cheerfully decorated with eyelet curtains and whimsical hand painted furniture bursting with bits of lively color, this room provides a fun and cozy spot for your get away. A queen bed, private glass and tile bath and fresh flowers await your arrival.

The innkeepers, Mike and Carol made us feel wonderfully welcome and the breakfasts were great. The Inn only has four guestrooms so there were only eight of us at breakfast and the company of the other couples were so enjoyable it make the visit particularly enjoyable. Dan & Amy Clements

By far, the most amazing experience I have ever had at a Bed and Breakfast. The food, the service, the hospitality is just unbeatable. I highly recommend a suite if traveling as a couple. It is well worth the extra space. The hosts had so many great recommendations for activities on the island and in St. Michaels. We took a recommendation and booked a 2 hour sailboat ride and it was well worth it. Captain Mike is passionate about sailing and the island lifestyle and Carol is like everyone's best Grandma. I unequivocally recommend the Lazy Jack Inn.

Wonderful little spot on Tilghman Island and a few miles down the road from St. Michael's. Mike and Carol are attentive hosts and serve a home-cooked, gourmet, sit-down breakfast. They are conscious of your food allergies, even likes and dislikes: Carol served a gluten-free scone made especially for one of the guests, while the rest of us enjoyed homemade zucchini bread as one of the courses. There was also fruit and breakfast tortillas. Freshly brewed coffee was available early for those who wanted to take in the morning air before breakfast. Lazyjack is one of the smaller B & Bs, which gives it a very intimate feel. Bedrooms are on main level and upstairs. Common areas include a sitting room/library, dining room, and coffee bar pass-through. Visiting with your fellow boarders around the breakfast table and having Mike and Carol serve while answering questions about the local area complete the coziness and hospitality. And if you go in the warmer seasons, don't miss the English garden to the side of the house. Beautiful!

Mike and Carol graciously welcomed us into their home with just the right amount of chat, knowledge of the area and recommendations for what to see and do and where to eat. The Nellie Byrd Suite was extraordinarily spacious, the king bed unbelievably comfortable and the views out over the harbour lovely. We would happily return for another stay should we find ourselves on the Eastern Shore of the Chesapeake Bay again.

Decided to do a last minute stay here and couldn't be happier. Top notch from start to finish.

We were met by Carol at the door. She was very friendly and showed us around the inn, gave directions on jacuzzi use, and told us when breakfast was served. We had never been to a B&B before, so we were unsure what to expect and were pleasantly surprised in many ways. We stayed in the Nellie Bird Suite and it was a spacious and beautifully adorned room. The jacuzzi worked well, although the timer did not seem to function properly. There was a gorgeous fireplace which we did not use because of the time of year. The room had fresh flowers which I thought was a very nice touch. Carol served us a delicious breakfast that came in three courses: a platter of fresh fruit with organic yogurt, a blueberry muffin with streusel topping, and an omelet on a bed of fresh and local cooked zucchini and squash. Each course was plated nicely and came out quickly. Plates were removed and drinks were refilled. We enjoyed the seclusion of Tilghman Island, we were able to walk to the local restaurants and there is a little shop a few houses away.

I was at Lazyjack for several days. It's in a wonderful location with things an easy walk away. Mike and Carol are lovely people. The breakfasts are some of the best I have ever had. The room was very comfortable. I highly recommend the Lazyjack Inn to anyone thinking of staying in the Tilghman Island area.
