Check Room Availability

The Hotel

All Hotel rooms have private baths; two have access to the second floor screened porch and two have working fireplaces. Two kayaks are available at no additional cost for guests. “Room with a View,” a gift shop offering one-of-a-kind hand-made Eastern Shore crafts, is open on the first floor of the Hotel (shop is open Wednesday through Sunday). Hotel guests arriving by boat may dock across the street at the marina.

 

Dining Room

This room dates back to the 1890 addition and is decorated in high Victorian style with Bradbury & Bradbury willow wallpaper. Cindy serves a gourmet breakfast in this beautiful room.

 

The Piano Room

This room was the dining room in the original roadhouse. The moldings are original hand-cut. The working fireplace boasts the original reeded mantle. The room looks out over the river. Guests may relax here with a glass of wine and afternoon snacks.

 

East Porches

The Victorian Bedroom and Garden Bedroom share access to a wonderful screened porch overlooking the marsh and river. Recent guests watched two eagles fight with an osprey near the nesting platform thirty feet away. We’re pleased to report that all was resolved with no harm to the disputing parties.

 

South Porch

The main porch that overlooks the Wicomico River. Great place to relax and see a variety of birds—including ospreys, herons, egrets, and many others—or watch watermen work the Bay.

Local Area

What is there to do in Whitehaven? You can take a nice walk or ride a bike around the village, or relax and watch boats glide down the Wicomico River. If you’re feeling a bit more adventurous, the hotel has two kayaks for the use of guests. Whitehaven has several well-known artists with studios you can visit. Whitehaven represents a way of life which is fast disappearing from the Eastern Shore. Marine facilities are available across the street in the Whitehaven Marina.

 

Wineries

Bordeleau Vineyards & Winery

Imagine relaxing amongst the beauty of the estate, enjoying world-class wines and taking in the abundance of wildlife that call the Eastern Shore their home: Bald Eagles, Great Blue Herons and Snowy Egrets, just to name a few.

Layton’s Chance Vineyard & Winery

The Layton family has been farming in the Salem area of Dorchester County for several generations, on what is now 1800 acres known affectionately as Lazy Day Farms.

In an effort to diversify their farming operation, the family reevaluated their business, and a few years ago joined Maryland’s growing wine trade. They planted their first grapes in 2007, choosing to grow grapes hardy and well-suited to the Eastern Shore.
