 Wood Duck Inn, a romantically restored 1890 Victorian, overlooks Dogwood Harbor, home of the last fleet of antique Skipjack sailing vessels in North America.

Tucked away in a quaint waterman's village, there's a place where time stands still. Originally designed in 1890 as a boarding house during the heyday of the steamboat the inn later functioned as a bordello and more recently as a waterman's family residence. A Victorian bed and breakfast you will find the perfect mix of comfort, charm and elegance. The Inn is furnished with antiques, family heirlooms and original artwork presented by local artist, Maureen Bannon.

Casual Elegance on the Eastern Shore of the Chesapeake Bay. The only AAA three diamond and Mobil three star waterfront inn on Tilghman Island.

The bed and breakfast is secluded and quiet. Fish for trout, striped bass, grouper, croaker, spot, mackerel, and crabs. Boat and motor rentals are available. Water recreation includes swimming, snorkeling, trophy fishing, waterskiing, and canoeing. Nearby recreation includes golf, tennis, hiking, bicycling, horseback riding, and hunting.

You can do as little or as much as you desire. Relax with a cool drink on the veranda and watch the boats go by or spend a winter day curled up by the fire with a good book.
