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.

The two of us stayed for 4 nights in September 2013. Staff is very welcoming and kitchen is available to make drinks and eat their cookies at all hours. Rooms are smallish but comfortable. Nice views of the water and lovely graden to sit in (watch out for mosquitos in the evening). Very nice sun room to sit in and read the daily paper. Breakfast was extensive and very good. Ate outside in the garden one morning. Within walking distance of a couple of resaurants (Stoney's Kingfisher and Striped Bass). The former is more casual with great oysters, the latter is quite new and comtemporary with great steamed mussels. Solomons is low key during week outside of summer season so don't expect to get a late dinner. Very nice place for a relaxing break will stay here again. Sculpture garden a few miles away is lovely.
Three Times A Charm

We have greatly enjoyed three stays at the Back Creek Inn. Carol and her staff are extremely helpful and friendly--happy to talk and offer advice but not intrusive. We've stayed in three of the seven available rooms, and all have been fine. The breakfasts are excellent--super eggs benedict especially; also great homemade cookies,iced tea, and other drinks available throughout the day. There is a very comfortable sunroom/common area to relax inside, whether you like to chat with the friendly staff, guests or just read the paper/assortment of magazine. If you seek solitude there are multiple places in the gardens on the grounds to read, nap or watch the boats. The grounds/gardens are beautiful. We love to walk out on the pier and watch the boats in the harbor.And star gazing at night on the pier is a perfect way to end a day. There are several restaurants within a short walk or drive, and plenty of activities if you want--we usually rent kayaks and explore the nooks and crannies of the Back Creek and adjacent creeks....or leisurely relax..... reading or watching the osprey and being along the water.

My wife and I had to put off celebrating our Wedding Anniversary until this past Memorial Day weekend. Man am I glad we did! The weather was spectacular, and the Back Creek Inn is ideally located to maximize enjoyment of good weather! This gem of a Bed and Breakfast is very reasonably priced, and is meticulously clean (which is always important to the wife!) The English cottage style gardens are wonderful to laze around in during the sunrise and sunsets, and there is plenty of space for couples who want to simply sit and hold hands while watching the boats go past along the river. We did quite a bit of that! The original house was built in the 1880's, and has a wonderful feel to it. It has been well maintained and kept, and it shows. Carol, Sarah, and Diana all conspired to ensure we had a beautiful weekend! I have to say that I am a bit of a 'foodie', and the breakfasts were delicious! (I think I might have eaten my weight in Miss Diana's crab quiche on Sunday morning!) The dining room is cute and cozy, but honestly we took all of our meals outside on the patios in the garden. Just too beautiful to pass up! You are within walking distance of pretty much the whole of Solomons, and a short drive from some of the best that the area has to offer. I also need to point out that while walking around the first night, we saw another B&B that we had considered on the other side of the town, and were so very grateful that we decided to stay at Back Creek Inn. The other place was beautiful as well, but located right in the middle of all the noise and traffic of the tourists in season. Back Creek Inn is just a little off the beaten path, and much better off for it, in my opinion! If you like the area, and are looking for a clean and comfortable (and romantic) place to stay, this is it! You will thank me for it!
Relax and Enjoy!

My husband and I loved coming back to stay at the The Back Creek Inn for our second year attending the "Tiki Bar" opening. The location is prime but tucked away for total relaxation. You can park your car and walk or bike everywhere. The food is delicious and we were able to enjoy breakfast with our friends outside on the patio. The cottage is our favorite and we can't wait to come back again next year. Thanks again Carol for a wonderful weekend.
