We were so pleased by our experience here. Perfect for a getaway. And they include the little snacks that made it a great experience!

Beautiful views and a wonderful host

The Laurel Grove Inn is a beautiful property right on the banks of the South River. (Indeed, you can choose to arrive by boat and dock at the pier, if you are so inclined.) The River Hill Suite is huge, with panoramic views of the water and environs - eagles, hawks, foxes, and rabbits have been spotted running/soaring by. At the same time, it's appointed in such a way to make it feel cozy and intimate. A private entrance makes this the perfect suite for a romantic getaway. For the family travelers, the guest suites all have access to a large common room, with a pool table, Foosball, puzzles, video games, and more. The Inn is also available for weddings and conferences, with parts of the house having been converted to meeting rooms, to space for caterers, and so on. Tiffany is an absolute wonder of a host - available immediately when needed, an exceptional cook and conversationalist, ready with a recommendation for dining or entertainment. The property itself is amazing, but Tiffany brought a thoroughly welcome and welcoming quality to our stay. We look forward to visiting again in the spring, and the summer, and the fall, and again in the winter.

Peaceful time by the River

Beautiful time of the year, to spend a few days by the river in Maryland. The hosts, Tiffany and Tom were friendly and handled all our needs. It was like staying with your favorite sister and her husband. If you want a relaxing stay at a location, where you do not want to leave, stay at the Laurel Grove Inn.

Laurel Grove in the Fall

Everything about our stay was wonderful. The property is lovely with a spectacular setting right on the South River. The owners have thought of every comfort amenity. They were warm and welcoming and had great ideas for making the most of the local area. Breakfast was fantastic and beverages and snacks were available all day. We are already planning for a return visit. Great value for the price.

Great Getaway

Tiffany was terrific and very easy to work with. We had a late arrival due to flights and she was accommodating and helpful. Food was great and She even provided night caps if you so wished! We couldn't have asked for a better experience and would recommend to others.

"A Must Return To Place"

5 on October 09, 2016

We just completed our 3rd visit and hope to return again after the holidays. Tiffany and Tom are superb hosts, friendly, informative about the area and lots of fun. Cold drinks, coffee, lots of snacks are available around the clock and a gourmet breakfast is served each morning. We stay in a beautiful suite and can see the South River from our bed as well as the porch. Annapolis is worth visiting. There is good shopping and Tiffany can direct you to lots of wonderful restaurants. Can't wait for our next visit!!
