The main house of this premier Chesapeake Bay Inn was built in 1906 in Queen Anne Victorian style and was the family home of Clarence Davis. M.M.Davis & Son were renowned builders of early twentieth-century sailing yachts and many of these were trophy winning racing vessels, the most notable being Manitou, owned and restored for a time by President John F Kennedy.
Amenities at Our Chesapeake Bay Inn on Solomons Island
On the ground floor of the Inn you are welcome to relax in the living room or comfortable sitting room, read the newspaper, or choose a game from the large variety we have for the occasional rainy day. Escape to the front porch or the garden with a book from the library. Relax and enjoy a full, delicious breakfast while overlooking the harbor in the bright and airy enclosed porch. All areas are independently heated with radiators and cooled with central air conditioning.
The Carriage house, built in 1997, comprises two spacious bedroom suites, each with an independent entry.
Free parking for guests is available at the rear of our Chesapeake Bay inn.
Breakfast at Our Chesapeake Bay Inn
Our breakfasts are a fusion of European and North American styles, always cooked from fresh ingredients and served as a three-course meal. We like to discover any culinary preferences or allergies you have when you book so we can do our best to accommodate them.
A choice of fruit juices with coffee or tea will support the indulgent first-course we offer. This could be delicious freshly baked scones in various flavors including Lemon Poppy and cinnamon crunch, orange poppers, and cinnamon apple crumb coffee cake. A second-course of fresh fruit, maybe our signature broiled grapefruit, is followed by an entrée comprising eggs, vegetables, cheeses or meats in creative combinations. Guest favorites are Grand Marnier French toast, Quiche Lorraine, and breakfast enchiladas. Or we may simply do Eggs Benedict, both traditional and vegetarian. We cater for guests with special dietary needs, including vegan, keto, gluten and dairy free. Please inform us ahead of your arrival.
