    Beautiful Inn on the creek We were attending a party on the island and this was convenient. We got in late because of the backup at the bridge on a Friday night (1 hour to travel 2 miles!) call the bridge hotline at 877-229-7726 to check on conditions. The rooms are quiet and clean. There is an outdoor pool, corn hole, badminton, and bikes available. Breakfast was good and served at 7:30. They host a lot of weddings and other events in out buildings. The inn was built in the 1800s and has great character.

    fun couples trip we actually come here a few times a year. It's about an hour from our home, so when we want to get away and spoil ourselves we head here, we meet four other couples for food and fun, have watched a few weddings that looked simply lovely. Food is always great, love historic settings and this is one with great charm.

    Enjoyable Stay We had a very enjoyable stay at the Kent Manor Inn. Very charming, peaceful and elegant. Lots of history and character. We enjoyed the breakfast very much, the bacon was a favorite! Lovely setting on well-kept grounds overlooking the water. Comfortable room with large updated bathroom and great shower! Friendly staff and easy check-in and out! The only minor negative would be the house keeping of our room. They never took our dirty mugs and glasses and exchanged for new ones. All in all, we had a wonderful time at the Kent Manor Inn! Convenient to DC and Annapolis. We would love to stay again! More

    Charming, historic inn in an idyllic setting We loved the beautiful, well-kept grounds. The Inn is a grand, historic building full of character and charm. The staff is friendly, efficient and accommodating. The rooms were well-appointed, and while the furniture was a bit less than comfortable, the bedding and linens are superb. As with any B&B-type hotel and its antique nature, noise can be a issue with guests closing doors, staff setting up breakfast, etc. Continental breakfast was plentiful. We took full advantage of the dock that juts out into Thompson Creek and fire pit. Would definitely stay there again!

    Mother's Day Brunch Brunch this afternoon was fabulous...showed up for our 1 pm reservation about 10 mins behind due to the rain but the staff didn't seem to mind...Delish food selections...Good Mimosas...AMAZING service...the venue was just gorgeous and imagine my surprise when I ran into Baseball Hall of Famer, Harold Baines, in the Buffet line! Can't wait to go back.
