The Inn overlooks the quaint harbor of Solomons Island, MD and is just a short walk to many superb restaurants, shops, and a museum, and to the pier where you can hire a boat, a kayak or jet-skis. Perfect for a couples getaway and also for the business traveler who doesn’t want to feel like one. The area enjoys sunshine 245 days per year, so there isn’t a time when something is not in bloom – whether camellias in February or crape myrtle in September. Solomons is the perfect location and Solomons Victorian Inn, the perfect choice, for your Maryland getaway.
