A gem in downtown Cambridge

5 on January 02, 2017

It was really great to be staying right in the heart of historic downtown Cambridge. The house is a gorgeously renovated home with just the right level of decoration. The hosts were very welcoming and had a lot of information about things that were happening and where to eat. The two breakfasts we had were excellent. The homemade cookies in the afternoon were also very good. We will definitely be going back.

Weekend stay

Wonderful stay. Jim and Marianne were very friendly and accommodating. Will stay there again.

Nice for an Anniversary Weekend

3.6 on November 05, 2016

Nicely furnished, historical inn. Quiet and elegant.

Peaceful, relaxing getaway

4.6 on October 28, 2016

We spent two evenings at the Cambridge House Bed & Breakfast. The owners were welcoming and helpful, providing several suggestions on restaurants and activities in the area. Breakfast was excellent, and we enjoyed spending an hour or so speaking with the owners about the historic property and surrounding town. I highly recommend the Cambridge House to individuals looking for a quiet, slightly off-the-beaten path getaway. While St Michaels and Easton are lovely, the peaceful evenings and warm hospitality offered at the Cambridge House were much appreciated.

We had a wonderful stay!

5 on September 14, 2016

Those house was charming and comfortable. Jim and Marianne made our stay most enjoyable! We had such good time there!

Very enjoyable two night stay! Would highly recommend.

We booked Friday and Saturday nights. After looking at the rooms on line, we decided on the Hunt Room which was really quite a bit larger and prettier than in the pictures. It was early Sept. so we didn't try the gas fireplace. Many large windows - lots of light. There were period dressers and tables, two comfy wing chairs I think they are called by the fireplace, and decorative pieces around the room. The bed was very comfortable, and quite high in keeping with the times- I used the step stool :-) The bathroom was clean and fluffy white towels replaced daily. Breakfast was quite large with fruits, juices, never ending perked coffee, home made frittatas with sausage one morning, and blueberry stuffed pancakes with bacon the next, all served on lovely china with period design silverware. Dining was a treat. The house is really beautiful and the paintings and antique furniture was warm, friendly and charming. The last B&B we stayed at, a Victorian with antique furniture, smelled musty and dusty and we were served heated frozen breakfasts - but not the Cambridge House. It was fresh and charming. Best of all, the proprietors, Maryann and Jim were perfect hosts. We highly recommend.

Wedding Weekend

Absolutely beautiful property with the most amazing and accommodating owners. I would highly recommend staying at this bed and breakfast to anyone coming to the Cambridge area.

Cambridge gem

5 on August 06, 2016

Conveniently located close to the harbor and downtown restaurants. Rooms are lovely and the breakfasts first class.

Cambridge House B&B

5 on July 18, 2016

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Cambridge House! Jim and Marianne were welcoming, our room was charming (with an awesome mattress!!), and breakfast was a gourmet treat! We especially loved sitting in their screened-in porch in the evening, reading and taking in the beauty of the night.

Cambridge House

We loved our stay at the Cambridge House. The rooms were nice and the owners are great people. I would highly recommend staying here.

My stay at Cambrildge House B&B

Owners went above and beyond to make our stay a great experience .The Garden Room had a beautiful view.

Great Visit!

5 on May 21, 2016

On a rainy day in Cambridge we were able to enjoy all of the comforts of this fine bed and breakfast!

Great Visit

Excellent stay! Innkeepers very friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was very good. The waffles are to die for! Would stay again.

Wonderful Exerience

Hosts were excellent! Made us feel at home. Inn was quiet, bed was great. Breakfast just kept getting better. The waffles were to die for!

A Lovely Place

4.0 on January 04, 2016

I recommend the Cambridge House B&B because it is a lovely, comfortable, conveniently located place. When the dog greets you by dropping his ball on your foot as a sign that he wants to play, you know you have entered a welcoming place. Jim and Mary Anne made us feel right at home. In the ill luck of the draw, we ended up right next door to a couple who acted as if they were alone in the house, with no neighbors to take into account, even in the middle of the night. But not even their boorishness affected our estimate of the Cambridge House. We would return happily--perhaps after checking that our discourteous neighbors were not also registering!

The perfect fit!

4.2 on October 28, 2015

What a great weekend! Perfect location for the Schooner Rendezvous - walking distance to all events and restaurants. Both Marianne and Jim are the ultimate hosts. Breakfast was tasty and the atmosphere was most relaxing. We had some great fun sharing some fun stories with our hosts some of the other guests that were also there for the events. I would definitely visit again.

Charming place to relax

5 on June 08, 2015

Great location walk to downtown and water, close to Blackwater Refuge. The home was clean, well kept, and quiet.

Top of the line

5 on June 01, 2015

Just what we were looking for and more.

Lovely B&B in great location

4.8 on May 06, 2015

Jim and Marianne were great hosts and made an amazing breakfast! The room we stayed in was spacious and comfortable. We'll definitely choose this B&B again when visiting Cambridge.

Charming in Cambridge.....

4.8 on April 25, 2015

A girlfriends' road trip took us to Cambridge.....we stayed at the conveniently located Cambridge House, where .we could walk a few short blocks to restaurants or walk in the opposite direction to the waterfront......our hosts prepared gourmet breakfasts each morning.....a nice base for exploring the Chesapeake Bay Area.....also, Max, their dog is quite entertaining!

Sweet Cambridge Oasis

4.4 on January 22, 2015

My husband and I wanted a quick escape from DC and found this gem of a B&B right within walking distance of all that quaint downtown Cambridge has to offer. Jim and Marianne were great about letting us check in early, and we were greeted by their adorable and sweet doggy Max. They quickly oriented us to the property and procedures and made some great recommendations about which restaurants and shops to check out. We stayed in the Dorchester room, which was spacious and lovely with a remote-controlled gas fireplace that provided warmth and ambiance. Of course it's an older home so it has its quirks, for instance, the thermostat in our room actually controlled the temperature in the next door room, but that wasn't a problem at all. I believe we were also located directly above the kitchen so there were definitely cooking smells, but if we kept the door to the bathroom closed it was fine - plus, it whetted our appetite for breakfast in the morning which was very tasty and just the right amount. All in all the property is beautiful, spacious, and comfortable and the location is just perfect for strolling downtown. We really enjoyed chatting with Jim and Marianne, and tossing the ball for Max. We will definitely be back and highly recommend this lovely B&B to others.

Beautiful and Peaceful!

4.6 on October 01, 2014

Jim and Marianne have done a wonderful job with Cambridge House. The furnishings are lovely, the setting is peaceful and the breakfast was fantastic! Both nights that we were there we took advantage of the balcony outside our room in order to enjoy a relaxing night after dinner. Highly recommend staying here. Within walking distance of everything Cambridge, MD has to offer!

The absolute best place to stay in Cambridge Maryland

5 on September 24, 2014

I stayed at Cambridge B&B for the IronMan Maryland event. It was the best experience I've ever had for accomodations at an Ironman event. I will be coming back to stay for a vacation because Cambridge B&B was absolutely fantastic.


5 on August 28, 2014

Very satisfied with the customer service.

Cambridge House

Owners were very accommodating and triathlete friendly!

Eastern Shore Gem!

5 on August 21, 2014

Maryann and Bill have an absolutely charming B&B! The house is beautifully restored, my bedroom was spacious, and the bed extremely comfortable! And the breakfasts featured local produce- delectable!! Historic Cambridge is outside their door- sit on the beautiful wraparound porch and enjoy the peaceful ambiance, or walk a short block for great restaurants. This is the perfect location to stay in Cambridge!!

enjoyed our romantic getaway!

4.8 on August 19, 2014

We planned a romantic getaway at this Bed and Breakfast We stayed in the Garden Room and romantic it was! View was beautiful, we enjoyed the slow pace of the area (though a little run down) many shops and restaurants in walking distance.

Cambridge House

4.6 on August 11, 2014

Lovely space both indoors and out. Great value and a great location.

Very Comfortable house and town

3.6 on July 30, 2014

We had a very nice two night stay at the Cambridge. MaryAnne and Jim were attentive but respectful of our privacy. Great porch, good breakfasts, only a block from the marina, and easy walk to town center. Small town but good variety of shops and restaurants. Blackwater Nature Reserve is relatively close and very interesting, if you Ike Bald Eagles, ospreys, and lots of birds, in season. Enjoyed our stay!

A Lovely Inn on the Eastern Shore

4.6 on July 27, 2014

Jim and Marianne are wonderfully warm hosts. The inn is well appointed and situated within walking distance of shopping and dining.

Average B&B

2.8 on July 23, 2014

Cambridge House B&B is in a wonderful location for daily outings along the Chesapeake Bay. Unfortunately it lacked the little niceties that I have come to anticipate with a B&B stay. Things like evening treats, fresh cut flowers and lovely gardens to enjoy morning coffee. The inside of the house is lovely and well-appointed, just missing the little extras. Breakfasts were OK, nothing spectacular.


5 on July 10, 2014

Great people, great cooks, and great pets. Very relaxing place.

Relaxing Bed and Breakfast

4.2 on July 09, 2014

Great B&B. I loved the location. Hosts were great. Breakfast was delicious.

Wonderful stay

5 on June 25, 2014

We had a wonderful stay at Cambridge House. Walking distance to anything you want to do downtown or on the water, knowledgeable and friendly owners, tastefully decorated and a quiet night's sleep! We couldn't ask for more. Thank you for having us.

Laid Back

5 on June 04, 2014

This was my second stay there. Love the home and the decorating and furnishings make you feel like you are stepping back in time. Very relaxing and stress free stay. Loved it!

Cambridge House

5 on May 30, 2014

We were coming off intense days of meetings and stayed there to decompress and have dinner w/ friends. We were very comfortable and the hosts are fascinating folks.

Wonderful stay in Cambridge

5 on April 30, 2014

My husband and another couple stayed in this beautiful home on a recent weekend. The owners couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. The B&B is located near the center of Cambridge, so there is easy access to restaurants and shops, as well as the marina. Don't hesitate to make this place part of your travel plans.

Great historical house with lots of charm

3.6 on April 15, 2014

Enjoyed our stay here for one night on our way East. Hosts were great as was Max their dog. Great weather so we enjoyed our wine on the huge front porch and the friendly folks waving as they walked by. Beautiful old home with a lot of projects to keep up with for an older house this size but very clean and charming. Room was large with a great bathroom and very comfortable. Breakfast was very good and again the house was very interesting and beautiful. Easy walk to several restaurants and the water. Would likely go back again....

Nice weekend in Cambridge

4.4 on March 19, 2014

Friendly couple in a charming house. Comfortable room.

Charming B&B with terrific breakfasts

5 on January 21, 2014

We had a delightful 2 night stay at Cambridge House. The facility is charming, and Jim & Marianne are interesting, gracious hosts. Breakfast was imaginative and delicious.

Beautiful stay in every way!

5 on January 16, 2014

Romantic fireplace, beautiful home, gourmet breakfast, charming and generous hosts, perfect location - walkable locally and nearby drive to pristine saltwater bird refuge -- our New Year's Eve stay at Cambridge House made a wonderful start to the new year!


4.6 on January 04, 2014

A lovely place in a lovely location operated by lovely people. Can't ask for more!

Lovely Bed and Breakfast

5 on November 13, 2013

Wonderful breakfasts, wonderful rooms, private bathroom, and right off main street! Close enough for an easy walk, far enough to be quiet. Also a short walk to the river. Beautiful!

2 night stay

3.8 on November 04, 2013

Lovely B&B close to the things to do in Cambridge. Owners well versed on the area and made our stay very enjoyable. Highly recommend a stay here.


4.2 on November 03, 2013

Rooms were large and everything was clean. We did not use the hot tub. Breakfast was decent but not hot enough. We enjojyed our stay.

Awesome Stay!!!

5 on October 30, 2013

We had a great time. The room was a good size. The food (breakfast) was amazing!!! I will be staying here again!

A Wonderful Place for Our Anniversary

5 on October 23, 2013

My husband and I spent a weekend at Cambridge House Bed and Breakfast for our first wedding anniversary. We really enjoy visiting quaint historical towns and I have a love of old homes. It was a lovely weekend of relaxation and fun. Jim and Marianne were perfect hosts who really made us feel at home. They have adorable pets too, which I think always makes a house feel like a home. We stayed in the Bay Room and it was just lovely. The weather was beginning to cool off and each morning I awoke to the breeze blowing through the lace curtains of the open windows. There's a lot of interesting things to see in Cambridge and most of it is in walking distance to the B&B. We visited the lighthouse and docks by the bay and the shopping and dining area of Cambridge. The beautiful homes in the neighborhood makes for a wonderful stroll. We also drove to the nature reserve and rented bikes. On our bike ride we saw the Harriet Tubman site. One of the nicest experiences of staying at the B&B is breakfast. I am vegan and my husband is vegetarian and we never expect special treatment. Jim and Marianne made us a delicious and filling breakfast every morning and it was a perfect way to start our day. I would highly recommend staying here and I am looking forward to going back one day.

Nice place to stay in Cambridge. Close to everything.

4.2 on September 26, 2013

Historic house on a cobblestone street. Walk to town in less than 5 minutes. Walk to the waterfront in less than 2 minutes. We had the Dorchester Room and it was huge. Breakfast was very good everyday. House is continually being restored by new owners of 2 years. Overall, a nice place to stay. It should only get better.

Cambridge Bliss

5 on September 23, 2013

A beautiful house and wonderful hosts. We have stayed at the Cambridge House twice and look forward to the delicious breakfasts and outdoor hot tub every time.

Great weekend getaway

4.4 on September 15, 2013

We stayed one night at the Cambridge House and it was lovely. Jim and Marianne were gracious hosts. We stayed in the Bay room which was large and comfortable. We had never been to Cambridge before, but they gave us excellent recommendations on dining and things to do. Overall a great stay!

Wonderful experience

4.6 on September 14, 2013

Jim and Marianne were the perfect hosts. They were warm and welcoming and the B&B is beautifully decorated. Once we discussed what we'd like to do while we were visiting, they were aptly prepared with brochures and advise. We had never been to a B&B and were a bit skeptical at first however based on our wonderful experience we would certainly entertain doing it again. We look forward to staying with them again.


5 on September 11, 2013

Jim and Marianne are wonderful and provide a tranquil place to rest and enjoy relaxation. She is a gourmet cook with wonderful breakfasts! Great service.

Wonderful visit

4.8 on September 07, 2013

My wife and I very much enjoyed our stay at Cambridge House B&B. We enjoyed meeting with Jim and Marianne, the home was lovely, breakfast was delicious, and we look forward to returning for a future visit to the Eastern Shore.

Cambridge House B&B Review

3.2 on September 05, 2013

All in all a great experience. Very accommodating innkeepers. Fantastic breakfasts each morning. House needs some TLC (mostly outside), but overall has been kept in decent condition. For anyone in the area, I'd recommend this B&B.

Summer Stay

4.0 on August 26, 2013

Extremely friendly and lovely rooms, would return

Great time.

5 on June 02, 2013

Everything was perfect. We will visit again.

First Stay At This B&B

4.0 on June 02, 2013

Overall we were very pleased with our stay. Jim and Marianne were great hosts and the breakfast was outstanding. The rooms were clean and nicely decorated.

Top notch

5 on May 13, 2013

My wife and I stayed two nights at the end of April. Everything was top notch. The room, breakfasts, and hosts were all great. I would recommend this place and plan to stay there again.

Charming and Relaxing

5 on April 10, 2013

Our stay was everything we could ask for in a B&B. The room was charming, the atmosphere relaxing. In addition to providing a gourmet breakfast each morning, the owners were very friendly and personable. It was like visitng old friends.

A great little B&B in a small, quiet town

4.0 on February 15, 2013

We enjoyed our night at the Cambridge House- the only suggestion we had would be to add a big fluffy blanket and a couple large floor pillows for getting comfy in front of the fire!

Excellent beginning to a new year

4.0 on January 09, 2013

Jim and Marianne have a fantastic gem in a quaint town. We wanted to get away for a few days, but were met with exquisite food (our reservations at a top notch restaurant were perfect - thank you Jim!) both in the B&B as well as in town, the ideas for activities, and just relaxing with what seemed like good friends by the end of a 3 day trip. I highly reccommend Cambridge House B&B

First rate, charming B&B

4.8 on January 04, 2013

Delightful B&B, in charming old house. Location is ideal for those wanting to explore Blackwater Wildlife Refuge and the many species of ducks congregated along Cambridge's riverfront drive. We have been coming here for many years and the new owners couldn't have been nicer. Highly recommend.

Cambridge House B&B

4.2 on December 19, 2012

This is a lovely B&B. I visited in the off season. It has a very homey feel, is outstandingly clean and well kept, the bed was very comfortable, and the location in Cambridge is outstanding. It is a little more formal (in terms of meal service) than I prefer, but the proprietors are extremely welcoming and friendly and prepared us an excellent breakfast, which we shared at a formal dining table with other guests.

Nice stay

3.4 on November 14, 2012

We just recently came back from a nice stay at the Cambridge House. The hosts were very lovely. The location was perfect. My only complaint is that I had to ask for shampoo. In the website they clearly had that they provided shampoo. I packed all my other usual toiletries. They did provide it but I had to get dressed to answer the door.

Friendly hosts & comfortable, large room!

4.8 on October 29, 2012

The service, comfort, and cleanliness were top notch and the hosts' dining recommendations were terrific. A great B&B in a very charming town. I definitely plan to return to Cambridge House again!

Great location

4.4 on October 24, 2012

Great location for walking to waterfront and downtown. Hosts were very engaging and informative about local area. Outstanding breakfast.

Great B&B

4.6 on October 14, 2012

Very nice rooms, outstanding service, very nice owners. Breakfast was good but not great. Would certainly stay here again and would recommend it to anyone looking to visit the area. Also a good location

Outstanding Reunion Weekend

5 on September 12, 2012

I had never stayed in a Bed and Breakfast before and so I was absolutely thrilled that I had made the right decision to stay at the Cambridge House B & B while in Cambridge to celebrate my 40th High School reunion. Jim and Marianne were extremely welcoming and made me feel like part of their family, they gave me directions, showed me the beautiful room that I had reserved and it exceeded my expectations. The bed was so comfortable and the room excellent for the internet, water pressure, and TV reception. The breakfast was elegant and delicious and beautifully presented and I just felt as comfortable as sitting in my own kitchen but I was being waited on.... I would highly recommend Cambridge B & B and will definitely stay there every time I am in the area.

Great for weekend getaways

4.8 on September 06, 2012

Jim and Marianne couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. The room was very clean and well-maintained, fresh linens, everything just right. The inn is just the right walking distance from downtown's shops and restaurants to be comfortable. I was somewhat surprised by the very small TV, but that wasn't important at all. I'd definitely recommend the Cambridge House.

Wonderful stay at Cambridge House!

4.4 on September 06, 2012

My husband and I celebrated our 1-year anniversary at the Cambridge House B&B. It was such a wonderful stay. Hosts Jim and Marianne, who are both lovely, left a little box of chocolates for us with a card on the bed. The house and room were comfortable and well appointed. We loved our second floor room that had its own door onto the back balcony, where we sipped wine in the evening and looked out at the trees and garden, bay in the distance. Breakfast was cooked up fresh every morning, and always began with a delicious fruit course. They also serve tea-time snacks for hungry guests. A great stay at a great B&B!

Great Innkeepers make it a great place to stay!

3.8 on August 28, 2012

We were a little disappointed at first when the hot tub was out of commission...wishing they would've told us that since it is advertised on the website and it was a selling point for us. All the disappointment disappeared though with the kindness of the innkeepers. They were very personable and very kind. They were informative in offering suggestions for dining and activities. Made our anniversary weekend getaway very special. Breakfast was always very good. Nice town...quieter than St. Michael's with stuff to do but relaxing if you don't want to do much. Thank you, Jim & Marianne Benson!!

Perfect Getaway

4.4 on August 27, 2012

Great location in an historic district. Park the car and walk to sights and restaurants. Sit on the lovely screened porch for reading and snacks. The 24/7 coffee/tea service, glasses and small refrig provided a welcome touch. Very comfortable bed in a spacious light filled room. Windows by breakfast tables look out on a charming well-manicured garden. Hosts offered great hospitality without being instusive.

wonderful weekend getaway

4.4 on August 27, 2012

We had a wonderful getaway and enjoyed our weekend tremendously. The Breakfasts were wonderful and the hosts gracious....

Loved everything about it!

5 on August 09, 2012

We loved Cambridge House. We were looking for a quiet get-away and found it. There's not a lot to do in Cambridge, which was fine with us. We used the B&B to rest, read, sleep, and relax. The huge front porch gave us a choice of screened in or not screened in, and when the heat got intense, we retired to our beautiful, air conditioned room. The hosts know the area well and recommended great restaurants and things to do. We recommend it highly!

Very pleasent weekend at the Cambridge House

4.2 on July 19, 2012

Jim and Marianne treated us like family and were very generous with their time and friendliness.


4.6 on July 18, 2012

Nice folks. Great breakfast. Clean rooms. Walking distance to the center of Cambridge and to the water. Safe.

Taste of Cambridge

5 on July 16, 2012

A wonderful place to stay. Friendly and warm. Gourmet breakfast to start your day. You couldn't be treated better. Captain Thom

Great Hosts and beautiful old house

4.6 on July 12, 2012

The hosts (including the dog), were very friendly but unobtrusive. We stayed two nights, and had a lovely room with wonderful breakfasts. The only minor issue was the bathroom was a little odd in shape - it had been added into the old building about 50 years ago, and was a very odd configuration. Everything was full size, but it was very cramped.

great 30th anniversary getaway

5 on July 11, 2012

Jim and Marianne were friendly, helpful and very accomodating.

Great Experience Recommended for Anyone

4.4 on July 11, 2012

We drove up from Washington, D.C. for a weekend on the Eastern Shore and were absolutely satisfied by our experience at the Cambridge House B&B. From the attentiveness of Jim and Marianne, to the wonderful atmosphere in the house, I would recommend a stay at this B&B for anyone. They were very helpful in providing information on local dining as well. Even the dog, Max, was a great addition!

The best!

4.8 on July 05, 2012

Our room was beautiful and very comfortable. The service and kindness went above and beyond any expectations I had. This maybe typical of b and bs...we had a facial soap, but no body soap or shampoo provided so be sure to bring your own. I would return in a heartbeat. Great restaurants and places to walk after dinner...the river and cemetery were both nice for leisurely strolls. We went to St. Michaels for shopping less than an hour away.

great location

4.4 on June 27, 2012

Beautiful house in a perfect location- the waterfront is at the end of the block one way, and downtown is three blocks the other way.


5 on June 11, 2012

Jim and Marianne were very sociable and interesting! Delightful people, beautiful place--the garden, colorful art on the walls, and the historic touches in the rooms and furniture gave our eyes a vacation everywhere we looked. There's a lot of love in this place, and we felt cared for. Our stay, though brief, was restful and transformative. Even the dog and cat were kind and thoughtful. We plan to return.

Would stay here again!

4.6 on June 06, 2012

Stayed in town for a wedding and got to do some sightseeing. The hosts were very kind and gave great referrals for places to eat and drink and things to do in the area. Homemade breakfast was wonderful and the room was so comfortable! We would definitely stay here again.

great p lace to relax

4.8 on June 01, 2012

The room was beautiful. The breakfast was over the top. The proprietors had a wealth of information about the area. Their dog Max was also pleasant company.

lovely weekend in Cambridge MD

4.4 on May 27, 2012

This is a gorgeous B&B very conveniently located to the historic downtown. Plenty of restaurants within walking distance, which is important when you love wine like we do. Jim and Marianne were wonderful hosts with a fascinating Foreign Service background overseas, and they obviously have enjoyed settling down into this beautiful mansion and sharing their accumulated art and experiences with their guests. We wouldn't consider any other lodging when we return to Cambridge.


5 on May 16, 2012

Good location in town. Excellent hosts. Large and comfortable room and delightful parlor and porches.

Quiet corner on the eastern shore

4.4 on May 14, 2012

After an afternoon battling traffic and mobs in St. Michaels we headed a little further south and found ourselves here in Cambridge at this delightful inn with engaging hosts. They helped guide us to both restaurants in town and hiking outside of town. The House is well-appointed, has high ceilings, beautiful furnishings and exquisite Latin American art. Worthwhile weekend.

Lovely place to stay in Cambridge

3.2 on May 09, 2012

Don't let the 3 stars in my review fool you - I have high expectations of bed and breakfasts, and Cambridge House met them all. The location is perfect, within walking distance to downtown shops and restaurants as well as a lovely park along the waterfront. The house itself is terrific, and the innkeepers have furnished it with a fascinating combination of period antique furniture combined with artwork from their time spent in Latin America. Two spacious porches - one screened and one not - are perfect places to relax. We stayed in the Governor's room downstairs, a large room with one of the most comfortable reading chairs I've ever sat in. The electric fire can be set to provide warmth or just a pretty display. The only downside was the noise when other guests were moving around upstairs at night. The breakfasts were delicious, the innkeepers warm and friendly, and their dog, Max, delightful. All in all, we had a wonderful stay.

Lovely, comfortable, perfectly located home-away-fro- home

4.6 on April 27, 2012

Our hosts, Jim and Maryanne, were friendly and helpful with tips on restaurants, museums, and other interesting sites in this very interesting area of The Eastern Shore of Maryland. They are enthusiastically restoring their historic B&B on the most historic street in Cambridge, easy walking distance from the yacht club and several fun restaurants. We found many things in common to chat about and would absolutely stay there again whenever we are in the area.

Relaxing Weekend!

5 on April 19, 2012

We stayed in the Dorchester room and had a great time. The room was clean and spacious; the bed comfy and the atmosphere relaxing. The hosts (Jim and Marianne) are very nice. They give you detailed information about the area and fully answer questions. The food is absolutely delicious (at the BnB and in nearby restaurants as well). We had a very relaxing and enjoyable stay at the Cambridge house and all in all, I think you get great value for your money!

A Pleasant Experience!

4.0 on March 16, 2012

We stayed at the Cambridge B & B for a impromptu reunion with relatives visitng from Europe. Our Host & Hostess, Jim & Maryann were wonderful and attentive. The B & B is conveniently located near several restaurants and the downtown area (walking distance).

Great night's stay

4.0 on February 25, 2012

This was a lovely little Inn. The Innkeepers were friendly and very helpful. We met the Inn's pets as we entered the Inn: a very sweet dog and cat. If you ask the Innkeepers, they will tell you some great stories about these charming animals. We walked to dinner at a nearby restaurant that the Innkeepers suggested and had a wonderful dinner. Breakfast the next morning was pancakes t with fruit and real Maple syrup.

Great B & B experience!

5 on December 07, 2011

I had the pleasure of staying at the wonderful Cambridge House B&B when I visited Cambridge for the first time in mid-November. The friendly innkeepers, Marianne and Jim, answered all my questions about the area and recommended a great place for dinner within walking distance. Their B&B is very clean, very comfortable, and the breakfast is delicious! I highly recommend!

A Marvelous Place on the Eastern Shore

My ratings are justly deserved. It was a very comfortable place to stay and I was made very welcome. I recommend without reservation.

Cambridge House B&B was everything we look for in a B&B experience. The innkeepers are warm and friendly, the food was excellent and the accomodations were lovely. We were within walking distance of the marina, shops, art galleries, museums and fine dining. We are adding Cambridge House to our favorites list and are planning a return trip in the new year.

the house overall and the room i stayed in were absolutely lovely, very well clean & well kept, thoughtful amenities above & beyond the call ~ Plus the owners Jim & Marianne (and their sweet dog Max and friendly cat) couldn't have been more friendly, gracious, helpful and interesting to talk to -- an unqualified pleasure!

Jim and his wife were super sweet. They made us a wonderful breakfast and after a 43 mile bike ride we came back to our room in which it was picked up nicely and the bed was made!!! We obviously weren't expecting that.. Almost felt like being home again with mom and dad! They made the stay very pleasant and we totally enjoyed max's company!!

The review of Cambridge House B&B

The hotel is very lovely and impressive. The homemade breakfast is delicious. It is a cultural environment and we saw collections from different countries in South America. We really enjoyed our stay in this hotel and plan to come back some time in the future.

Spent a weekend at the Cambridge House and really enjoyed our stay. Jim and Marianne are wonderful people and made us extremely comfortable and made sure we had everything we needed during our entire stay. I would definitely go back and stay again! Thanks for a great weekend.

Cambridge in October

The Cambridge House is located in a very nice, historic area of the small town of Cambridge, MD. A short walk to the water was pleasurable. Walking to dinner a plus. The B&B is beautiful and includes a friendly dog and cat.

Lovely B& B

The owners are wonderful people who were very accomodating to all our needs. When I lost a button on an outfit they provided needle and thread so I could sew it back on! The rooms were clean and spacious and breakfast was excellent. Very nice B& B to stay for any vacation!

Lovely Weekend

Despite the poor weather (lots and lots of rain), we had a lovely weekend at the Cambridge house B&B. The property itself is fantastic with lots of vintage touches (including the original tub in our bathroom). The owners were super accomidating and even left breakfast out at 5 a.m. for those of us who had an early morning race start. Overall it was a fantastic experience.

fantastic stay

I just went up for a weekend and stayed in the Dorchester room. Jim and Marianne are very hospitable and extremely accommodating. Not only did we arrive late, we woke up late for breakfast one morning and they made us an excellent breakfast. We will definitely be returning next year.

First stay at a B & B

Our wonderful weekend at the Cambridge House made us a fan of B & B's. Great location close to the marina, restaurants and historic downtown. Breakfast exceeded our expectations too!

A Weekend of relaxation

4.4 on August 14, 2011

We stayed at Cambridge House B&B this past week'd and absolutely loved the charm of the place. Jim is a wonderful host and made every possible attempt to make us comfortable. The property is well maintained and location is very idyllic. Its a short walk to the Long Wharf Marina and to downtown. The town has a community feeling to it. If you are looking for a weekend to relax and slow down from crazy city life, this is just town and place for you.

Great location, great hosts.

We were so pleased with our stay at Cambridge House. Although under new ownership, so they are still working out the kinks, this is the best location in Cambridge. Walk anywhere in town! The rooms were fresh and clean and very spacious. The owners are very friendly and helpful. The inn has obviously been well cared for. We will definitely stay again.

Powerboat race weekend

A home filled with warmth and style. Jim and Marianne were great hosts! I wish we could have a bed and breakfast like this one in every city that we travel to for the races!

lovely room, lovely hosts

We enjoyed our weekend at the Cambridge House. The room was lovely. The location, close to the water and a water-front restaurant was just what we wanted. The hosts provided information on the area as well as an elegant breakfast and a welcoming atmosphere. I will be recommending to friends.

Wonderful Cambridge Experience

Cambridge House has new owners who have a lovely touch, are considerate and friendly, and provide a comfortable and welcoming environment. House is half a block from the waterfront and a 5 minute walk to downtown Cambridge. Also only a 15 minute drive to Blackwater Wildlife refuge. We'll definitely return.

High regards for a lovely B&B

Our stay at Cambridge House B&B was perfect for our needs - a one night stopover en route to Virginia's Eastern Shore. The home is lovingly attended by the new owners who are very friendly and enthusiastic about their new venture. We wish them success!

Cambridge House a Nice Place to Stay

3.8 on July 13, 2011

The owners were very attentive but were not pushy. They did a great job making everyone feel welcome. This is a great place to stay that is within easy walking distance of restaurants, the public pier, and the historic downtown district. We enjoyed our stay here.
