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. Please keep in mind we have two cats that go in and out of the house if you have cat allergies.

"Perfect"

Mike and Sharon went above and beyond to be helpful. On Tuesday of our stay, it poured buckets. They invited everyone to dinner so that guests would not need to leave in the rain. The dinner turned into a party with some of the most scintillating conversation I have been engaged in for ages. Mike also prevented my vacation from turning into a disaster when my husband had to leave unexpectedly for a work emergency. If he had not volunteered to assist me with hitching the trailer we brought, I would have had a rushed 10 hour drive home with Jim. Instead, I could send Jim home by air and enjoy the rest of the week. In case that sounds selfish, I had orders to rest or take a leave of absence. Mike was meticulous in ensuring I would be safe on the way home. The location is lovely. The first morning we were there, we saw dolphins. From the vantage point of the beach steps, I watched white pelicans, cormorants, great blue herons, sandpipers, terns, and a bald eagle. The location is an easy bike ride via trail to either the National Wildlife Refuge or Kiptopeke State Park. Mike is also a wealth of information about the area as well as Civil War History. I am in love with the Eastern Shore and I can hardly wait to return.


Ultimate in relaxation

Very quiet and peaceful. We had the beach to ourselves most of the time. Enjoyed the history Mike shared. Would stay here again!


You just can't beat anything about this place

This was our 3rd time here and it has been a pleasure each time....only negative is that it gets hot in the rooms at night...they really do need to lower the temperature...they keep it at 76, and that is way too warm


4 thumbs up!

This was a great place to stay. It was a great location. The private access to the beach was great and only a 10 minute drive into town. The service was great and very accommodating. It was a quiet stay with sounds from the nearby nature preserves and the waterfront..amazing sunsets as well!!!


Wonderful retreat!!

ANOTHER EXCELLENT VISIT

3.8 on August 06, 2017

The hosts are just the nicest people. The accommodations are more than adequate. The view is spectacular. The breakfast is very good. This was our 3rd visit there and we can't wait to get back. We use it as a one night stopover on our annual trip to the Outer Banks, but there are enough local attractions and natural beauty to make it a destination for a stay of a couple of days and the rates at Baywood make it quite affordable.


Hope to Come Again!

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this bed and breakfast. The service was first class, the place was very clean, the bed was comfortable, and the view of the Bay was awesome! We plan to stay there again in the future.
