Beautiful Inn

4.2 on October 01, 2016

We have stayed at numerous B&Bs and the Mill Street Inn easily exceeded our expectations. The Inn is beautifully appointed and well maintained. The innkeepers are a delightful, warm and accommodating couple. The homemade breakfasts were wonderful and the extra amenities in the room including maps to local attractions, wine, chocolates, specialty soaps, etc.,contributed to making our stay uniquely special. I would definitely return. Glenda

Great place to stay!

The folks are really kind and helpful. I've stayed there before and would do so again

Wonderful Labor Day weekend at the Mill Street Inn

5 on September 06, 2016

Room – Our room (The Winifred) was warmly colored and perfect for relaxing. The bed and chairs were cozy, and the bathroom was great (strong water pressure; comfy robes). The room had lots of windows, and a pretty view of the quiet street below. B'fast – B'fast was superb. First morning - blueberry corn cakes and sausages; second morning - Eggs Choptank (poached egg on a bed of tomatoes and spinach). Each b'fast came with ever-full pots of coffee/tea, fresh fruit, and freshly baked goods. I'm a vegetarian and Skip & Jennie (S&J) were very accommodating. The Inn – Audubon prints abound. The two living rooms are comfy and fit the B&B aesthetic. There are two screened porches that are great for relaxing, esp. for drinking coffee in the morning. The Hosts – S&J are exceptionally kind and generous people. They are knowledgable about the E. Shore, and very helpful in their recommendations. They are the perfect type of hosts—friendly and present, but not too present. They sat down with us at the end of each b'fast and chatted, and made us feel like warmly welcomed guests in their home. Everything Else – What makes the Mill Street Inn a wonderful B&B is the little things. There were tasty, freshly baked cookies every day; a bridge full of beers for guests and a daily bottle of wine in each room; friendly cats in the hosts' part of the house. Staying at the Mill Street Inn is really a treat. Lastly, I am so thankful to S&J's hospitality. During the second day of our stay in Cambridge, our car broke down outside of St. Michael's. We called S&J and, without prompting, they made the ~30 minute drive to pick us up and drive us back to the Inn. They then did everything they could to make sure that we had a wonderful last day in Cambridge, allowed us to stay at the Inn well past our checkout time, and helped us get back to DC in time for the work week. I cannot express how kind and considerate hosts S&J were—it really meant a lot to us.

Relaxation !!!!!

1st time to Cambridge. Jennie & Skip share their knowledge & love of the town & we had 2 of the best meals we have had in a long time on suggestions they gave us. Just the right mix of them taking great care of us & letting us come & go as we pleased & relax. Looking forward to another visit soon & to try another great room in their inn.

Lovely Inn with friendly hosts

We made last minute reservations for a one night stay. The hosts were most gracious and friendly. They suggested a good place for dinner. We enjoyed walking the few blocks from the Inn to the center of town were the restaurant was located. The next morning the breakfast was delicious. The home made wheat toast a treat and the meal just the perfect size.

Fabulous stay

We didn't know what to expect when we arrived in Cambridge for a long weekend getaway, but after meeting Jenn and Skip, we knew we made the right choice. The Mill Street Inn is wonderful with great rooms, great food and terrific hosts who go out of their way to make you comfortable. We especially enjoyed the conversations around the breakfast table each morning. And Jenn and Skip's advice on what to see and do in the area was spot-on. All in all, just a great experience staying here in a quaint town along the Chesapeake Bay. We highly recommend the Mill Street Inn for those looking for a special experience.

Great stay in Cambridge

Beautiful rooms (we stayed in the blue room and loved the huge bathroom with claw foot tub). The owners were lovely and very helpful- made us feel right at home. Delicious breakfast that I am still dreaming about! We also loved being able to walk just a block to dinner and the waterfront. Great stay in Cambridge!

Cambridge, Maryland's Mill Street Inn is a Special Experience

5 on July 10, 2016

From the moment we arrived at the Mill Street Inn in Cambridge, Maryland, we knew that we were at a very special place and had chosen well for our vacation. Jennie and Skip Rideout, the owners of the Inn, were very welcoming and most helpful with suggestions about where to dine and what to see while we were in Cambridge. Our accommodations were wonderful, and the Inn and the gardens were beautiful. Jennie is a superb cook, and the breakfasts she served were excellent, incorporating fresh, local area produce and herbs from her garden. The Mill Street Inn is a very special place, and we are looking forward to staying there again..

Don't pass this place up!

We have stayed in many BBs--it's a good way to get to know the area from "insiders"-- but the Mill Street Inn was one of the best places we've visited. The house is immaculate yet inviting, full of homey touches such as board games, local newspapers, and overstuffed comfy chairs with soft blankets draped along the back in case a nap is imminent. The breakfasts are delicious, and feature local ingredients. The pecans in the pecan pancakes are from the backyard! The hosts are friendly, knowledgeable about the area, and so incredibly interesting to talk to. They make no demands on the guests, yet are available to talk or answer questions at a moments' notice. Their stories about the house, the town, and their lives are fascinating. But they also take an interest in their guests. Many of the guests are return visitors -- we plan to be among that group in the future. Mark and Shelley Lakshmanan, Indiana
