Trip Advisor Wonderful Retreat
Sep 29, 2014 by: Rich365 from Odenton, Maryland
This beautiful B&B is tucked away at the end of a side street off Solomon's Island Road, away from any of the busy-ness associated with the main drag. The house was originally built some time in the 1800's, and the older sections of the structure are quite quaint. We stayed in one of the rooms that constitute the oldest part of the house, specifically the Tansy room. The stairs leading up to our room are on a slight angle, so you can tell you are dealing with some ancient wood; but that is really part of the charm. This B&B is well-furnished and generally very comfortable. The hostesses are quite friendly and helpful, and they quickly make you feel right at home. The grounds are beautiful, with lots of flowers, plants, and a few accent statues. Several patios with tables and chairs are available for use, as well as a nice grassy backyard that leads to the water's edge and a beautiful view of the surrounding bay and boats. A small dock leads out over the water to give you a closer view, as well as some additional intimacy with our surroundings. The only negative is that there are mosquitoes, especially around dawn and dusk, so you will likely have to coat up if you spend time on the grounds during the warmer months. Fortunately, the hostesses very thoughtfully provide bottles of bug spray for your use, so you can enjoy the property to the fullest. The breakfasts are not what you would call "low fat," but they are well-balanced and provide a rich treat for a few days away from home. Our Saturday breakfast consisted of Eggs Benedict, a side of sliced fresh fruits, coffee/tea, choice of juices, and some sweet cake. Sunday brunch was more elaborate and was served buffet-style. It included a ham and spinach quiche, a crabmeat quiche, a pecan-cinnamon French toast casserole, a bowl of fresh sliced fruits, some fresh-baked biscuits with appropriate condiments, some sliced heirloom tomatoes with balsamic vinegar, a blueberry cake, choice of juices, and coffee/tea - all very tasty, with plenty of seconds if you have room. Throughout the day and evening, tea and coffee, fresh-baked cookies, and pretzels are always available. There are lots of things to do and see on Solomons Island and the surrounding area (e.g., hiking, biking, kayaking, museums, lighthouses, restaurants, etc.), so this B&B makes an excellent home base for an enriching stay.

If you're visiting the Chesapeake, do not miss the Back Creek Inn at Solomons, MD. A wonderful 4-day stay in late August - the weather was perfect, the service/food were everything you could hope for, the grounds magnificent. I'd love to revisit in the spring when all those azaleas are blooming. If we get back to the East Coast, we'd visit them again.



Trip Advisor Beautiful Place to Relax with a Family Atmosphere...

I had been on the boat for a month & hauling out for repairs so i needed a place to stay close within walking distance to most of Solomons' restaurants. As bed & breakfasts go this is a jewel set in great surroundings. The view was great the interior design is homey. My room was nicely decorated "Sweet Marjoram" a quaint little room very comfortable & clean. All the staff were fantastic even helping with a few things, they went out of their way to take care of. The gourmet breakfast was simply the best omelet made to perfection, just what i need to get started for the day. A walk around the grounds and out on the dock, very relaxing. I felt right at home through out my stay thanks to Carol, Sarah and the rest of the staff. I am hoping to return again soon



Trip Advisor Great Place To Relax
Aug 24, 2014 by: Razzierb from Myrtle Beach, South Carolina
Many thanks to Carol, Sarah and the rest of the staff for making our stay at Back Creek enjoyable. Other reviews have said it all; english style gardens, home baked cookies, early morning fresh coffee and home made pastries, the relaxed back yard setting that you see in the picture above with multiple places to sit, decent bicycles for touring Solomons, walking distance to most Solomons' restaurants, a great sun room to relax in and of course the breakfasts. Day one, we were served an eggs benedict that was fantastic. I read one of the other reviews that reported a crab quiche breakfast .. guess I'll have to pay another visit to experience that! :-) During our visit, we enjoyed spending our late afternoons at Back Creek in the back yard. Carol has several umbrella covered tables along with the chairs you see in the picture, so plenty of room to bring reading materials, snacks and a bottle of wine along. The view in the picture is from our table. Great view!



Trip Advisor Perfect B&B

We stayed at the Back Creek Inn for three nights to attend wedding events in near-by St Mary's County. Wonderful hostess and staff. Very comfortable with all amenities. Rooms are en-suite and located so each is a quiet haven. Breakfasts are from scratch and excellent. We enjoyed the outside tables, the back lawn and dock area. We could walk to the boardwalk part of Solomans Island for dinner and to the Marine Museum. Just park your car and enjoy the area.
