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
The Inn at Huntingfield Creek is the perfect place to exhale. From the manicured landscape to the adorable cottages, I cannot imagine anyone having a less than perfect stay here. Our dog had the absolute time of her life. It was so refreshing to take her off leash for our entire 2 day stay. Jim & Joann have perfected the art of hosting and couldn't be more kind and welcoming. We loved our stay and will surely return.
My husband and I celebrated our 32nd anniversary at The Inn, April 1-3, 2018. To say this place is fantastic is truly an understatement. The entire property is beautiful, with its sprawling acreage, spacious and beautifully appointed main house, and cozy cottages with just enough room for two.
Tucked way, way back on the Eastern Shore far away from the noise and bustle of the city; we reveled in the peace and quiet. We were in The Lavender Cottage( 800 sq.ft. positioned next to beautiful lavender fields) complete with kitchenette, a big bedroom and a spa tub. You couldn’t ask for a better set up., it gave me a better appreciation for a “tiny house”.
Everything was truly top notch, impeccably clean and beautifully decorated. The owners were out of town during our visit, but their innkeeper carried on in their stead. A large breakfast was prepared every morning with lots to choose from (even gluten free bread).
I would love to return one day and eagerly look forward to it. The only negative though were the dogs. I am not an animal lover and they were a bit too close for comfort. (Constant sniffing as we ate, their heads literally in our laps-a tad much). Even this wasn’t a deal breaker, it’s an excellent place to get away, disconnect and take in the scenery. The Inn comes very highly recommended!
Joanne and Jim Rich are superb hosts that make you feel instantly at home. They are very warn and gracious people that really enjoy what they do. Their breakfasts are incredible and we probably gained a few pounds eating them! Dinner recommendations were spot-on and their Java Rock cafe in downtown Rock Hall provided rich coffee and a scrumptious lunch! We will return.
We happened upon a little piece of heaven on the eastern shore over the weekend. We certainly did not anticipate what a wonderful experience we would have at Huntingfield Creek Inn. The property and rooms are terrific even at the tail end of winter. The owners are warm, genuine individuals who are completely interested in making sure all of their guests have a great experience. They are very giving of their time and spent time with each guest making sure to answer any and all their questions, and share a story or two about the Inn and its history.
We will certainly make our way back very soon and check out some of the other rooms and cottages.
My husband and I were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary and chose Inn at Huntingfield Creek for its location and amenities. We were not disappointed! Very private and well stocked cabins - perfect for a quiet weekend away from the city. We will certainly return with our children and pets to take advantage of the wonderful setting in the spring and summer. Just minutes from a wonderful federal wildlife refuge where we spent the afternoon watching 5 bald eagles! Facilities for weddings, retreats and private parties. Our hosts were very attentive and loads of fun. Don't miss this gem on the Eastern Shore!
