Relax - Explore - Restore
Located in the heart of historic southern Maryland, the Back Creek Inn offers a unique blend of old and modern conveniences. For over 125 years, this waterman’s home has stood on the tree-lined banks of Back Creek. First a private residence, this home now celebrates its 32nd year as a waterside Bed & Breakfast Retreat.
Carol Pennock, the innkeeper, and the staff look forward to welcoming new and returning guests. Carol is an accomplished artist, specializing in oils and watercolors. She also works in stained glass. Most of Carol’s creations are on display and can be purchased at the Inn.
My wife and I have been rendezvousing at this lovely B & B for more than a decade over Columbus Weekend; I arrive by boat from the Chesapeake Bay and she drives in from home. On the water of Back Creek in Solomon Island, MD, there is a double berth for boats right in the front yard, a pleasant walk from the lounge. Carol's breakfasts are noteworthy for their freshness and flavors, with home-made jams and jellies to add even more to the experience. With numerous rooms of all sizes from simple bedrooms to a stand-alone cottage, there are a variety of accomodations available. The setting is peacefull, yet just a short walk to the quiet bussle of the shops and restaurants of Solomon's. Like coming home to your favorite Cousin's abode.
From Virginia Beach
We are just back from staying three nights in their Lavender Cottage. My wife and I were both very pleasantly impressed by the friendliness of the welcome and the quality of the accommodations. They emphasized that guests should make themselves at home. The property is quiet, even serene, and we had a great view of the gardens and private dock. Breakfast fare is delicious and varied. Guests can either sit by themselves, or sit at larger tables where they can comfortably socialize with others.
