A must for couples getting away from it all!

5 on February 01, 2015

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.

Wonderful stay!

We spent 2 nights at the Lazyjack and cannot say enough about our stay. Carol and Mike are exceptional hosts. The breakfast each morning was outstanding and we greatly enjoyed our conversations with Carol and Mike. They were very welcoming and offered great suggestions for restaurants in St. Michael's, Easton, and Tilghman. Tilghman is not as touristy as St. Michael's and Oxford, but it suited us perfectly.

Great stay at the Lazyjack Inn

Warm and welcoming

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

Outstanding stay with wonderful hosts!

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.

Great Hosts

Lazy Day at Lazyjack

4.2 on September 08, 2014

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!

A wonderful get away

Very healthy breakfasts--delicious and full of energy producing food.

The Perfect Respite

5 on August 08, 2014

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.
