Whitehaven Hotel

River Street & Whitehaven Road , Whitehaven, MD 21856 USA (Show map)


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.

Whitehaven retreat!

4.6 on August 13, 2016

We usually have the bed made for us in all other B & B's. This was done when we stayed here before The only reason it mattered, is that I brought my daughter and family in to see the room and was very surprised that the bed wasn't made nor was the bathroom touched in any way1

Lovely - Inviting - Welcoming - Charming - Perfect.

This was our 2nd Stay ~ and we will certainly return in the future. This is a LOVELY place to rest your head. Cindy is amazing ... all your needs will be met with a warm and genuine smile. So much history here! Beautiful Gardens filled with butterflies and beauty. Charming breakfast served - you just cannot ask for any more. Highly recommend.

lovely overnight stay

We stayed overnight so were not able to fully enjoy all the Whitehaven Hotel has to often, but plan to come back. The room was charming and the innkeeper was very nice in accommodating our late arrival and need for extra bed. She also very nicely made a vegetarian/vegan breakfast alternative for our daughters. Just lovely!

more than terrific

best breakfasts I have ever eaten - beautiful gardens - friendly people - wonderful biking - but really, it's hard to describe how total this visit to this historic place was - don't miss it! Ray & Larisa Baker Toms River NJ

We loved every aspect of this B&B, from the complimentary wine when we arrived to the beauty of this historic property itself! We saw our host the next morning and she was a pleasure to talk to. Breakfast was the best we've had of the ten or so B&B's we have visited.

Whitehaven Bed and Breakfast is a wonderful, quiet, relaxing, beautiful area, place to stay. The breakfasts are super, and the wine and homemade "crab cookies" were very special. It is a good way to get away from Salisbury when visiting family! The privacy is also very good. We recommend this B & B to everyone who wants a very calm "get away."

Lovely B&B. Great owner. Beautiful, isolated setting. We will be back!

One of our favorites!

This is probably the sixth B&B we've stayed at, and easily competes for our favorite. Tucked away in a completely silent town, on a riverfront with beautiful landscaping. Dragonflies all over the place. Complimentary wine in the dining area was a real treat when we arrived! The house itself was beautiful - had to be mostly original woodwork and floors with a really nice Victorian theme. Breakfast the following morning was absolutely perfect. Should we ever head this way again we will most definitely be back!

Would enjoy going back and will recommend

The rooms with a screened porch were especially lovely. I booked a small room just in case the pics were accurate - wish I had gone bigger because the pics font donthe rooms justice. The apartment would be ideal for a longer stay as it offers cooking options and restaurant offerings are most limited. Cindy was a great innkeeper. ...even offered wine and cheese on porch
