|In 1995, the 19th century Whitehaven Hotel was saved from the wrecking ball through the cooperative efforts of local residents, the Maryland Historic trust and by those captivated by its charming location in a riverfront Eastern Shore village at the Whitehaven ferry, minutes from the Chesapeake Bay. The Hotel, now one of the last of its kind, provided lodging for travelers crossing the Wicomico by horse to Quantico, Salisbury and Princess Anne and by steamship to ports as far as Baltimore. |
The Hotel is nestled on the shore of the Wicomico River and is about 25 minutes outside Salisbury, MD. Please refer to our Contact Us page for location details, driving directions and Ferry hours. Other Eastern Shore attractions such as Ocean City, Chincoteague Island and the Assateague National Seashore are also short drives away.
The Hotel has seven guest rooms. All Hotel rooms have private baths, two have access to the second floor screened porch and two have working fireplaces. Two kayaks are available at no additional cost for guests. Room with a View, a gift shop offering one-of-a kind, hand made Eastern Shore crafts, is open on the first floor of the Hotel (Shop is open Wednesday through Sunday). Boaters: hotel guests may dock at the Hotel's dock. Gift certificates available.
