Whitehaven Hotel

River Street & Whitehaven Road , Whitehaven, MD 21856 USA (Show map)


The Whitehaven Hotel was saved from the wrecking ball through the cooperative efforts of local residents, the Maryland Historic trust and by those captivated by its charming location in a riverfront Eastern Shore village at the Whitehaven ferry, minutes from the Chesapeake Bay. The Hotel, now one of the last of its kind, provided lodging for travelers crossing the Wicomico by horse to Quantico, Salisbury and Princess Anne and by steamship to ports as far as Baltimore. Nestled on the shore of the Wicomico River, the village of Whitehaven is about 25 minutes outside Salisbury, MD. Other Eastern Shore attractions such as Ocean City, Chincoteague Island and the Assateague National Seashore are also short drives away.

Lovely B&B

4.6 on October 09, 2016

The house is beautiful my only suggestion is that the house needs a really detailed cleaning in that there was many small details in the rooms that needed dusting, Other than that we love it, the staff was outstanding, the house and details excellent.

Best place to stay on the eastern shore near Salisbury, MD

Relaxing Weekend Getaway

Our family of 4 really enjoyed our stay at the Whitehaven Hotel. The Lincoln Room was comfortable for all of us. There was a trundle and a rollaway for our girls. Cindy and Jefferson were excellent hosts. The breakfast were delicious, and the friendly atmosphere was really nice. The waterviews and the nearby ferry crossing were beautiful. The outdoor spaces were great also: the porch, the garden, and especially the dock. We hope to come back!

Best Bed and Breakfast Experience I've Ever Had

My husband and I took a mid week mini vacation on my way to a work function in Maryland. I stumbled across the website for the Whitehaven Hotel and I am so very glad that I did. The house is gorgeous and all of the rooms were lovely. They have their own bathroom and they are decorated beautifully. We stayed in the Lincoln room which had its own kitchenette. The breakfasts served in the morning were such a treat. Everything was served on gorgeous china and the food was wonderful - hot home made cinnamon roles, fresh fruit, muffins, eggs - the works. In the late afternoon they put out wine and cheese and my husband and I enjoyed this snack while sitting on the front porch watching the small ferry run. This was a delightful trip and we could not have been happier. I highly recommend adding this to your "must see" list the next time you are in Maryland.

We usually have the bed made for us in all other B & B's. This was done when we stayed here before The only reason it mattered, is that I brought my daughter and family in to see the room and was very surprised that the bed wasn't made nor was the bathroom touched in any way1

Lovely - Inviting - Welcoming - Charming - Perfect.

So much history here! Beautiful Gardens filled with butterflies and beauty. Charming breakfast served - you just cannot ask for any more. Highly recommend.

lovely overnight stay

We stayed overnight so were not able to fully enjoy all the Whitehaven Hotel has to often, but plan to come back. The room was charming and the innkeeper was very nice in accommodating our late arrival and need for extra bed. She also very nicely made a vegetarian/vegan breakfast alternative for our daughters. Just lovely!

more than terrific

best breakfasts I have ever eaten - beautiful gardens - friendly people - wonderful biking - but really, it's hard to describe how total this visit to this historic place was - don't miss it! Ray & Larisa Baker Toms River NJ

We loved every aspect of this B&B, from the complimentary wine when we arrived to the beauty of this historic property itself! We saw our host the next morning and she was a pleasure to talk to. Breakfast was the best we've had of the ten or so B&B's we have visited.

Whitehaven Bed and Breakfast is a wonderful, quiet, relaxing, beautiful area, place to stay. The breakfasts are super, and the wine and homemade "crab cookies" were very special. It is a good way to get away from Salisbury when visiting family! The privacy is also very good. We recommend this B & B to everyone who wants a very calm "get away."
