About

The Baywood Bed and Breakfast is located one mile north of the engineering marvel, The Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel. We are on the Chesapeake Bay side and boast of a private, secluded beach that is wonderful for swimming and gazing at spectacular sunsets. We are close to golf, kayaking, boating, bird-watching and hiking trails. If you are looking for a traditional beach vacation - The Baywood is for you! We offer a full breakfast with consideration of any dietary concerns.

This was a gorgeous, quiet, clean, and quaint place to stay on the Eastern Shore. We thoroughly enjoyed our time overlooking the water, eating a delicious breakfast, touring the 'locals-only' spots that Mike told us about, and generally relaxing for the weekend. I would go back in a heartbeat-- he will see us again!


Beautiful Spot

This was our second stay at Baywood. We arrived early enough for a relaxing walk on the beach. Breakfast was excellent, freshly prepared and plentiful. Our room was comfortable and had the amenities you would find in a hotel room, some B&Bs do not provide hair dryers, terry robes etc. but this one does. Great place!


Great Getaway

The Bed and Breakfast was a little further out of town than we expected. However, the location was beautiful with a full view of the Bay from our room with a porch. The service was excellent. Mike was the best "guide" we could have asked for. He knows the area/history, very friendly and was kind to let us borrow a book on the area that walked us through (literally) many of the towns with the colorful history of each. Will definitely stay there again!


Great B & B on the Chesapeake Bay

We recently stayed at the Baywood and loved it. The rooms were large, clean and very comfortable. The two front rooms have a wonderful view across the Chesapeake Bay. There are no TV's in the rooms but a common area with TV is available. The private and secluded beach is great for swimming in the summer and for long walks anytime. Mike is a great host and serves a large and delicious breakfast at 8:30 AM.


Checked ALL of the Boxes!

Baywood was exactly what we were looking for! Beautiful, quiet, sparkling and spacious with a gracious host and a knockout breakfast - it really couldn't have been any nicer. We had the Lighthouse Room, which included a large en suite with a walk-in tub, a huge shower and large, fluffy towels. The whole wall facing the water and beach were beautiful white French doors that opened onto a very large porch/balcony with a table and chairs. The sunset from here was stunning! Our host, Mike, is a history buff which played into our interests perfectly. On top of piquing my interest enough to look some corresponding topics up when home, he has a particular soft spot for General Lee. Mike also steered us in the right direction for dinner (The Oyster Farm, but that's another review!). Before leaving, Mike served us and the other two couples who were in-house (and we never heard a peep from) a fabulous breakfast that would be the fuel to the next leg of our journey up the coast. I will be writing him personally for a couple of recipes! I'm not much of an egg fan but he made a casserole that was so light and fluffy with vegetables, that I ate the whole piece and it was substantial. There was fresh fruit, tea or coffee (which is also place outside of the rooms from 6am), juice, sausage (which I AM a fan of!) and a wonderful muffin that had a name, but I don't recall. A Bay muffin, maybe? Just a spectacular send-off! We didn't have a chance to meet Sharon, but if she's as charming and knowledgeable as her husband, it was our loss!


Winter Get-Away

Perfect time in a beautiful, spacious and spotless facility. Mike directed us to a couple of sights in the area that we were not familiar with. Awesome breakfasts, hospitality and view of the Chesapeake Bay.


Great B & B

My wife & I have stayed at Baywood several times. All aspects of our stays have been exemplary! We will continue to, again, return to Baywood when we get the chance!
