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.

The Victorian with it's great view was most relaxing. Our guided brewery tasting tour couldn't have been more fun. The end to a perfect day was our dinner prepared by our host Cindy. The most delicious beer recipes of BBQ beer shrimp, beer braised short ribs, and cheddar ale soup topped off by a chocolate granache frosted stout cake. YUMMMMMMMMM!!!!!!!!!

Friendly, low key, elegant, and in a beautiful surrounding, the Whitehaven Hotel has become one of our favorite places on the Eastern Shore. Cindy and Jefferson and the rest of the staff are first rate, friendly, kind, and utterly helpful. We will be back, I suspect often.
