great get away spot

Beautiful, relaxing spot. Jim and Dorothy are wonderful hosts being available for any assistance and absent to afford you comfort and privacy. A lovely scenic get away. St Michaels minutes away for nice meal choices.

Miles River Guest House

The hosts, Will and Dorothy, were very helpful and grateful. The house is just that, it is a house that is adjacent to the home of the hosts. I would say that it is unique. It is not from a cookie cutter mold of a hotel. The sunsets are tremendous! The house is a couple of miles from Easton with a small historic area, a few great restaurants, and art type shops while a few miles the other way is St. Michaels with much nautical and bay history, shops, bars, ice cream, and restaurants. We saw osprey, herons, and ducks from the back yard. The house itself is in a very quiet neighborhood, it has a nice pool. It was nice to paddle around the Glebe Creek in the canoe.

Ideal Getaway on the Eastern Shore

5 on August 19, 2013

This used to be our secret getaway but it seems to have been discovered and I couldn't be happier for Will and Dorothy (and Murphy). We just finished our fourth visit to the Guest House and, as each time before, our hosts provided everything we needed and more. The extra bedroom afforded us the luxury of bringing along some friends and they too had a wonderful stay. The weather was perfect, with glorious sunsets each day and my family and friends had a grand time fishing, crabbing, and generally lazing about. I proposed to my wife a few years ago on the Guest House pier but each time we visit we make wonderful new memories. If you are looking for a peaceful escape with breathtaking scenery, an ideal romantic getaway, or just lazy days lounging in the pool, then this is the place. But please, let's keep this our little secret.

Vacation- finally a great one!

As a person who works way to hard and takes so little time off.... I can't say enough about how great the Miles River Guest house was! I booked the house for a 3 night get away with my two 20+ god daughters and there mom and we had a blast. I brought my kayaks so everyone had one to use and we thoroughly enjoyed paddling, playing cards at night and relaxing on the dock and by the pool. What made it so great was our wonderful host family and the fact that we had our own home away from home secluded and filled with everything you could ask for.

Fantastic find

Will and Dorothy Howard are the best hosts, making us feel welcome throughout our stay. The guest house is comfortable for a quiet weekend alone or with friends or family. We're looking forward to future visits.

Amazing B&B

We love Miles River Guest House, Notre séjour fut un ravissement, autant par la qualité d'accueil de Will et sa femme que par l'endroit. Nous y avons passé 5 jours fantastiques avec un des plus beaux coucher de soleil jamais vu!! Nous ne pouvons que conseiller cette location.

Lovely stay at Miles River Guest House

4.0 on June 14, 2012

Will & Dorothy have an idyllic setting. The guest house has it's own small kitchen and outdoor grill which is divine, so you can eat outside & enjoy your own private gorgeous sunset. And, they are close to both Easton & St Michaels (and grocery stores) which makes everything convenient - what you want when you get away! W&D are a lovely & friendly couple, they are helpful but don't intrude. All in all, a fantastic stay, highly recommend! p.s. jukebox in guest house is a fun addition to your own music!

The Miles River Guest House is the perfect destination when you are looking to get away from it all. Will and Dorothy have created a special blend of charm, natural beauty, and an eclectic collection of personal memorabilia to entertain like minds. I am not into crowds or the hustle and bustle of tourist traps so this was really the perfect spot to celebrate a special weekend! Natural beauty and wifi too, the amenities were too many to list. Pack your bags and leave your troubles behind, Your own private guest house awaits....

The Eastern Shore's Hidden Gem

5 on March 09, 2012

My husband and I just returned from our third, most needed, and most extended stay this year and can't wait to go back. We stayed for our second New Year's in a row and then President's Weekend which included a fabulous on site massage by a wonderful therapist. The massage melted my stress away and got our 3 day holiday a great start. Perks went on to include a thoughtful and delicious Smith island cake for my B-day as well as the usual fresh fruit, breakfast pastries, and heartier breakfast items. We were well taken care of as we always are. It was suggested that this would be a good place to recover from my upcoming surgery and use the new airy bedroom that they just put in on the main level with a bathroom located right next to it. So, we came back last week straight after the surgery. The owners graciously allowed us to extend our stay at the last minute for an extra night. We ended up staying 5 nights and every one was a much needed step, no pun intended, in my recuperation. I will never be able to thank the kind owners enough for all they did to accommodate us. The new ground floor bedroom is a DREAM!! Its new king-size bed and crisp linens were VERY comfortable and the best part is that there is a new window directly across so you can lie in bed and get a great view of the Miles River and its gorgeous soothing sunsets. The new bedroom includes a flatscreen tv as well. The tasteful decor of beautiful photos and artwork had me floating by air and sea. Very relaxing and just the tonic I needed after the op. We feel honored to have christened the new bedroom. As I told friends, surgery isn't fun, but if you have to be ill or in pain, this is the place to recover. You couldn't ask for more considerate hosts, Will and Dorothy, who make sure you feel at home, more amenities (How many places have their own jukebox and bar?), or a more beautiful, peaceful location on Maryland's Eastern Shore, healing both mind and body.

New Year Retreat

5 on January 11, 2012

We enjoyed the Guesthouse so much when we stayed there to ring in 2011, we decided to come back to start 2012. Once again, it was an enjoyable and relaxing weekend away. The value for money is exceptional and you get as much or as little attention as you desire. The owener only wish is for you to enjoy your stay and will assist you any way they can from making recommendations/reservations to ensuring the fridge is stocked with what you need. The bonus this year was the two Bald Eagles sitting in the trees just outside the Guesthouse. Every sunset is stunning and you feel the worries drain away when you arrive. We will be back again for 2013 assuming the Mayans got it wrong and the world doesn't end.
