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!

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.
Are you uptight

My guests and I travelled by boat from the Northern Neck of Virginia. We were able to dock the boat in one of two slips that the Inn offers freely. The innkeeper is calm and very accomodating to guests. Go ahead and leave your wine and cheese in a separate fridge reserved for guests. There are several outdoor seating areas/patios to choose from; you can be in the public (around other guests) or in a private, more secluded area if you prefer. Its a very short walk to town. The Inn offers a grat, full breakfast and the coffee is ready when you awake. The setting is divine. One feels as though they are in the country while being very close to town. Gardens are quite nice and cozy. This is a friendly, peaceful, and comfortable place to stay. Highly recommend. We shall return
The B&B to Stay In
Aug 10, 2014 by: TheHungryPoet from Chevy Chase, Maryland
The Black Creek B&B Solomon's Island Last weekend we reposed a while On little, pretty Solomon's Isle There in the summer sailboats fare In summer's bright and sunny glare. Here oysters grow of premium league That proudly are named Cincoteague What joy October has an R I thought as we arrived by car. The B&B where we will stay Is on the Chesapeake's Bay With its own dock where yachts can anchor There's nothing I can think is swanker. The room is smallish, but it's home Where we will rest after we roam Alas, the blanket on the bed Is heavy as if made of lead. There's tea and coffee for the taking And cookies that are true home baking The guests at breakfast sound their voices In praise of all those tasty choices. Should you sojourn at Solomon And need to rest your head upon A pillow there's the B&B That gives you rest as it did me. The Hungry Poet
You need to stay here,

Gardens and gardens, oh did I say gardens: I believe most varieties of plants grown in northeastern US are found planted here. The aroma changes with the season. Get up early to watch the sun rise over the Back Creek. Then settle back to a delicious breakfast appetizer of coffee cake and whatever brew you wish coffee or tea. But wait,there's more... Linn can cook and here comes eggs benedict, french toast, crab quiche or egg casserole. Centered beautifully on Solomon's in walking distance of the Patuxent and scrumptious seafood restaurants and when you tire of all the tranquil setting and wonderful food, sleep soundly in comfortable quarters and dream of where historically you might venture the next day.
