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.

Originally booked for 1 night, extended for 2. The hotel is very welcoming, a very relaxed 'feel at home' atmosphere and offers a peaceful, perfect get away to chill out. Cindy & Jefferson made us very welcome, we shared delicious food, great conversation with other guests and just enjoyed relaxing by the river watching the ferry go to & fro and the local wildlife entertain us - ospreys, turtles, humming birds, butterflies. The crab dinner at the Red Roost was an experience not to be missed.

This is my third stay at the Whitehaven Hotel. It is the perfect retreat from everyday life, so quiet and serene. Cindy is wonderful and makes a most delicious breakfast. It is a great place for a girl's weekend or personal get away.

A very peaceful and quiet B&B. The breakfasts were outstanding. Including local veggies and herbs their own garden. Cindy, the inn keeper, made us feel like we were in the home of an old friend.

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.

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.

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!
