Our c. 1855 waterfront home, located in the village of unspoiled Tilghman Island Maryland, is within walking distance to fine restaurants and shops. The Lazyjack Inn has earned a reputation as one of the Chesapeake's finest getaway destinations. Our guest rooms are comfortably elegant, appointed with personal treasures and original art with our guests' comfort in mind. Spectacular water views abound from the East Room and the luxurious Nellie Byrd Suite as well as our sunny back deck and the Harbor Room where a gourmet breakfast is served including freshly baked specialties.

Excellent inn keepers. One thing,for those who eat breakfast behind the wheel of a car with a cup of coffee and a Cliff bar a piece of , a piece of bacon would be great while on vacation.

Great place to stay!

Idyllic Doesn't Begin to Describe Our Visit

Our innkeepers/owners, Mike and Carol, were amazing. They welcomed us at the front door and guided us to our accommodations (Nellie Byrd room). Breakfast was the culinary high point of the day, along with great conversation with Carol and Mike. We immediately felt like long lost friends and will definitely return.

Idyllic Only Begins To Describe Our Visit

Carol and Mike were wonderful hosts. They met us at the front door and we quickly became good friends. They thought of everything to make our stay enjoyable, from their coffee and tea for early risers to knowing who to call to arrange an outing or to make a dinner reservation for us. Our morning breakfasts were always the best meals of the day. Our room, Nellie Byrd, was like a newly found paradise with a fantastic view of Dogwood Harbor and the working oyster fleet. Their lives are tightly intertwined with Tilghman Island and it shows in their love of the very idyllic and restful place. We will definitely return for another visit.

Wedding Weekend Stay

We had a delightful stay at the Lazyjack Inn while in the area for a wedding. Our family used all of the rooms in the inn. Innkeepers Mike and Carol were wonderful hosts, and ensured our every want and need was met.

Ice Cream for breakfast!

We wanted a weekend at the shore but without the hassle and chaos of the beach. The Lazy Jack Inn was a excellent escape from the hustle yet was close enough to many of the Chesapeake Bay's best attractions and sunsets. Breakfast was wonderful and served by Mike and Carol with smiles and great conversation. I recommend the Lazy Jack to anyone who just needs to unwind for a few days.

good stay

A hidden treasure

4.6 on June 09, 2016

Michael and Carol made us feel so "at home" in their lovely, well decorated B &B. The room was perfect with attention to details and the breakfasts were absolutely amazing at a table d'hote, which is unusual. We enjoyed talking with the other guests, whom we probably would not have interacted with otherwise. Michael's stories about the area and his past in the Navy were most entertaining. The location was ideal for us, close to but far enough from the hussle and bussle of St Michael's. We would go back if our travels took us back to the Chesapeake Bay. Thanks for a lovely stay.
