My favorite place!

This is the second time I have stayed at Cambridge House B & B and it was even better the second time around. Jim and MaryAnn Benson are the best hosts. They made me feel like I was staying with favorite relatives. I stayed in the Queen Anne room which is immaculate, the shower was wonderful and the bed so comfortable. Breakfast was absolutely delicious. We were served our choice of juices, bread and we had the best quiche I have ever tasted along with sausage, I thoroughly enjoyed my two days there and will continue to come back .

Great visit

We were impressed with the relaxed atmosphere and the convenient location. Hosts were welcoming and attentive and arranged an early breakfast for me as I was sailing on a skip jack that weekend. Room was comfortable and pleasantly furnished.

Relaxing at Cambridge House B&B

We had a relaxing two days in Cambridge. We enjoyed our stay at the Cambridge House and took advantage of the porch right off of our room to enjoy a glass of wine and enjoy the weather. The owners were helpful and friendly.

Conveniently located

Wonderful Stay in Cambridge MD

I was in town for Eagleman 70.3 and this was a perfect pick of B&B. A healthy dinner was served for athletes the night before, and a carb-loading breakfast the morning of competition. I've never been to a place that caters to athletes' nutrition like this one. Awesome! Room and grounds were lovely and tidy. Breakfast every morning was delicious. I would highly recommend Cambridge House!

Jim and Marianne are accessible for any questions and gracious proprieters. Location accessible to restaurants and shopping area.

Cambridge cycling weekend

3.4 on June 02, 2017

The Inn is very nice and the host greeted us and showed us our room. If traveling with bicycles be sure to ask for a room with a balcony so you can lock them up. We were unable to attend the breakfast hour the next morning due to a cycling event so the owners put out some packaged granola bars and fresh fruit. Something homemade would have been great. The fireplace was a nice surprise and we did use it to cut the chill in the air after walking back from dinner. The next morning we were served breakfast in the dining room. It was very nice although we could have eaten more than three pancakes.

Great spot!
