Easy does it at the Inn at Huntingfield Creek, a relaxed 70-acre retreat on the oldest land parcel in Kent County, Maryland. In its early days – before its incarnations as a hunting ground and horse-racing track – it was known for its convenient cart paths, good moorings and all-around accessibility. These days, it’s managed by innkeepers Jim and Joanne, who have taken it in a hospitable new direction, with some help from their four-legged assistants.
Now a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence winner, the property is as quaint as the surrounding village of Rock Hall, with charming accommodations and common spaces. These include the only bed-and-breakfast saltwater pool on the Eastern Shore and welcoming treats like fresh-baked cookies. And don’t forget gourmet breakfast, with dishes like blueberry-orange pancakes and corned beef hash. It’s served every day, fresh and homemade, and the modern-day property remains down-to-earth and accessible as ever.
The cottages at the Inn at Huntingfield Creek offer total seclusion, with the luxuries of staying in your own private home. The perfect complement to your panoramic views, each is sleekly styled and superbly appointed, with a fireplace, spa bath with whirlpool tub and furnished kitchen, a romantic haven for your Chesapeake getaway.

Known as the “Pearl of the Chesapeake,” the waterfront town of Rock Hall sits on the National Chesapeake Scenic Byway and is filled with outdoor adventure, laid-back vibes and harbor charm. Take a boat ride on the bay, dine on local oysters over live music, or get active by fishing, biking or hiking. The nearby National Wildlife Refuge and miles of beaches offer fun for the whole family, and local museums teach you about the town’s, and region’s, centuries of history.
How to Get There
Peaceful, luxurious, relaxing, and quiet - this place has it all. After spending a week in the city on business (DC), we wanted to spend the weekend on Chesapeake Bay relaxing, eating good seafood, and exploring a part of the country we had never seen before. We found the Inn at Huntingfield Creek online, and the experience exceeded our expectations on every level.
This is the type of place you want to find as a traveler. The Inn is immaculate, the surroundings are beautiful, and the community of Rock Hall is a corner of America that reminds you why you venture from home looking for new adventures and friends in places you have never been.
We stayed in the Woods Cottage, and its layout was ideal for two. It included a very well stocked kitchette (microwave and fridge), a small dining room table, a deck overlooking the woods, a comfortable bedroom, and a very nice bathroom. The cottage was a private and convenient location for exploring the surrounding area.
The Inn itself is an impressive venue. The layout of the facility has been very thoughtfully designed to support everything from a quiet weekend for two - to what appears to be the perfect venue for a family reunion or wedding. We spent time in the library enjoying the views and brief conversations with other guests - try the chocolate chip cookies, you won't be disappointed.
All in all, this place is a winner. It is clear Jim and Joanne have an eye for quality, attention to detail, and a true love for what they do. We enjoyed our visit and would recommend the Inn to anyone looking for a relaxing weekend on the Bay. You won't be disappointed.
Jim and Joanne...the owners...
If there are 2 nicer people in the world, i wanna meet them!
This place is immaculate, spacious, warm and inviting.
Located on a huge parcel of land on the water.
Rooms were outstanding.
Breakfast in the morning out of a southern living cookbook, but no grits.
A hospitality room with books, music, free beverages(no booze), just beer and wine.
Its the ultimate place to decompress.
Probably one of the most beautiful places I have ever stayed. The inn and the grounds are impeccable. The hosts were warm and the dogs were cute and friendly. The breakfast was delicious and the others staying at the inn were also a great group of people.
We contacted the Inn at Huntingfield Creek on Friday evening for a last minute, Saturday/Sunday getaway. To our good fortune, we found a room. What a lovely place! Joanne and Jim are perfect hosts, very engaging with guests and fun conversationalists. The inn, their home, is very comfortable. Our room, in the main house, was large, very nicely furnished and quiet. Common areas feel like home. And the extensive grounds are both full of surprises and pastoral beauty. We kayaked for a couple of hours on their quiet creek on the edge of the Chesapeake, enjoying osprey, herons and egrets. Breakfast was communal, with delicious food (especially the very berry bread pudding, a Sunday morning specialty) and great conversation that went on long after the plates were cleared. Rock Hall is a fun little town, with many dining options, and a unique Saturday evening entertainment option in the Mainstay, a local non-profit performance arts venue. We would definitely recommend the Inn at Huntingfield Creek, and will be heading back there ourselves for a longer stay.
We had a perfect Girls' Getaway for two nights. We booked the Lavender Cottage because it had a little Bistro Kitchen. It was absolutely perfect for our adventure to the eastern shore of Maryland. The main house was lovely and the grounds were stunningly beautiful. There was a set of docks in the marshes with a view of the Chesapeake Bay. Breakfast was delicious, and there were interesting guests that we enjoyed talking to. We liked that there were a couple of children and the Inn was dog-friendly. The three of us hope we can bring our husbands next time we visit. The hosts and staff were friendly and showed us wonderful hospitality. A very classy Inn without being stuffy or formal.
