The Whitehaven Hotel was saved from the wrecking ball through the cooperative efforts of local residents, the Maryland Historic trust and by those captivated by its charming location in a riverfront Eastern Shore village at the Whitehaven ferry, minutes from the Chesapeake Bay. The Hotel, now one of the last of its kind, provided lodging for travelers crossing the Wicomico by horse to Quantico, Salisbury and Princess Anne and by steamship to ports as far as Baltimore. Nestled on the shore of the Wicomico River, the village of Whitehaven is about 25 minutes outside Salisbury, MD. Other Eastern Shore attractions such as Ocean City, Chincoteague Island and the Assateague National Seashore are also short drives away.

Awsome place

5 on July 11, 2014

Stayed there during fourth of July weekend in the federal room. It has marvellous views across the river and over the little ferry. The nest of Ospreys is right in front, with four fledglings calling out for more fresh fish... It is a great area for biking and cycling. We also took the 4th of July cruise and were treated to some awsome crab cakes and excellent wine. Very enjouable. The people in charge are very welcoming, and hospitable. They served a greta brekfast on the porch. we ended the afternoon sipping champagne there as well. Delightful.

Exceeded Expectations!

This was our first stay at the Whitehaven Hotel, but it won't be our last. As you enter, a sign by the door says "May all who enter as guests leave as friends" and it was true. The innkeeper, Cindy, is the loveliest, warmest person who really goes above and beyond to make your stay perfect. Her breakfasts are gourmet and delicious, and the inn itself is so cozy and inviting and filled with lovely things. There really is something special about this place, and Whitehaven as a whole, and I hope it stays that way! It was a real refuge away from the craziness of everyday life. We can't wait to go back.

So relaxing

Lovely old inn with a wrap-around porch and rocking chairs that just cry to be used. The dog friendly room was perfect for my Buddy and the entire inn, staff and guests are dog friendly. Breakfast was well worth getting up for and the conversation was lively, fun and intelligent. Special attention is paid to each plate and, if you don't like something, the chef will make you something else. Don['t go here expecting a wild and crazy time unless you make it yourself. Go here to relax, watch osprey and chill!

Our getaway

Relaxing Weekend

An excellent place to get away from the city and enjoy the Eastern Shore. --- Enjoyed an excellent and enjoyable weekend at the Whitehaven Hotel that included a boat trip down the river arranged by the hotel.

the most perfect place to stay

This was our second visit to the Whitehaven and this trip was just as lovely, if not more so, than our first, 18 months ago. This visit, we chose the Garden Room for its views and its relaxing screened in porch. Is there a more perfect spot to enjoy a bottle of wine in the evening or the morning's first cup of coffee? Maybe only the front porch, where we enjoyed visiting other guests. The fiddlers in the group added their talents to the wonderful atmosphere. Cindy and Jefferson take the BEST care of guests and Cindy's breakfasts are soooo good. This trip we used the inn's kayaks. The area is a perfect biker's heaven-miles and miles of flat roads with wonderful scenery. We will certainly be back and hopefully very soon!

Wonderful weekend!

We fell in love with this B&B. The rooms are all very nice but the Sailmaker's loft is wonderful. It really is like a little apartment. A full kitchen has utensils, pots and pans & a full fridge. It also has a private balcony with awesome views. Cindy and Jeff who run the place made us feel at home. It's really a place to relax and put your feet up. In the afternoon Cindy put out cheese, fruit and wine which was a nice touch! We loved it and will be back in the winter.

Lovely Stay
