Our Story

Built as River View House in 1710 and an Inn since 1800, this is the oldest full-service Inn in America. Four of our 310 year old rooms were indeed slept in by Founding Father Robert Morris, George Washington and many other dignitaries of the day and since. Red brick fireplaces around which heated discussion on the arguments for independence from Britain took place and negotiations for sugar cane, tobacco and French wine worked out. Wood paneling, red brick fireplaces and oak timbers are all as they were 310 years ago, hand built by ships carpenters from locally acquired materials and the red bricks from England, used as ships ballast. One cannot get any more historic than this. Later in life Robert Morris would reflect on his simple upbringing in a small two-bedroomed cottage on the river in Oxford.

In more recent times author James Michener outlined his famous novel, Chesapeake here. Now the Eastern Shore's most unique historic restaurant with rooms. This is a truly historic Inn, cozy with a natural patina running through. Friendly, great cuisine and understated professional service.
