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.

A most convivial visit at the Whitehaven Hotel

4.0 on August 23, 2015

The hostess sent the tone the minute we arrived and her friendliness and the front porch enabled strangers to become friends as we lingered, watching the ospreys and the ferry. The breakfasts were delicious. It was the most relaxing few days I've had in a long time.

One of the best B&B

Lovely rooms, friendly staff and beautiful grounds. This place has it all. We enjoyed our one night stay and wish we could have stayed longer.

Great Get Away on the Eastern Shore

4.6 on June 04, 2015

Whitehaven is an adventure. It's off the beaten track on the Eastern Shore in a small town on the Wicomico River next to the 3 car ferry. The town is about 3 streets of older houses and no commerce so you are really out there. The innkeepers are especially generous with their time and will happily share what they know and make suggestions for how to spend your time. Breakfast is fabulous. The rooms are all period with private baths. Whitehaven is a hidden gem.

Innkeepers Cindy and Jefferson were fantastic. We stayed for three nights and had great food, rooms, views and company!

Whitehaven Heaven

Wonderful room, very comfy bed, great breakfast and Cindy is the best innkeeper ever.

Awesome retreat

4.8 on April 20, 2015

Rooms older so of course not as ample space as newer places, but if you like charm, this is your place. And, the gourmet breakfasts can't be beat. Place was immaculate, and great value for the money. So serene and peaceful. Fun to take the free ferry! A definite relaxing retreat away from it all. Birding paradise.

Relax and Pamper Yourself - Best InnKeeper Ever

We love Whitehaven Hotel. Best kept secret in all of the Eastern Shore. Cindy the Inn Keep is one of the most wonderful and thoughtful people ever. She is kind and very thoughtful - she brings a very special warm, open and accepting quality to all who come to the Inn.

Whitehaven is a haven indeed

Each year a group of friends meet at Whitehaven to enjoy the inn, its porches, its views, its hospitality and our friendship. The innkeeps are the best in the business. Beds are comfy, decor is charming , breakfast is yummy. And price is great for an inn.

March Getaway

We stayed at the Whitehaven Hotel for one night in March 2015. We had a wonderful time and will definitely be back! Cindy and Jefferson were great hosts! The special dinner that Cindy prepared for this weekend was excellent as was the breakfast. I would highly recommend this B&B to anyone looking for a getaway weekend.
