BCI is a wonderful, relaxing place. Our room, Chamomile, was very nice. This room requires a wired Internet device if you want access. The inn supplies the wire. It was bright and the bathroom was a good size. The breakfasts were superb. We enjoyed talking with everyone on the staff. We were able to launch our kayaking from the lawn at the inn. There are several good restaurants within walking distance. There are many other destinations within a half hour drive.
Our Favorite B&B

We've stayed at the Back Creek Inn for the past 6 years over Thanksgiving, and it's been such a lovely place to relax. Lovely house with a warm and welcoming staff and owner, Carol. After a delicious full breakfast with home-made goodies, we enjoy going fossil-hunting. The Calvert Marine Museum is just down the street and is fun to explore, even without kids. Wonderful dinners at CD Cafe and Broome's Island Crab soup at Solomon's Pier restaurant. We wholeheartedly recommend this wonderful spot to friends, and look forward to our next visit. Did I mention the really comfortable bed and quiet room? And fresh cookies in the cookie jar all the time?

Beautiful property and lovely staff. Wonderful views and a relaxing getaway for me! Will return and will recommend to friends. Great place to stay on Solomons Island and great location to explore the area on walking tour.
Great spot for a special celebration

The Lavender Cottage with screen porch is so nice. The welcome balloon & cake was special. The breakfasts were delicious. Take a river cruise from the Calvert Museum. Eat the crab dinner at The Striped Rock & the fried oysters at Solomon's Pier.

My partner and I never explored southern Maryland, despite living only 2 hours away in Montgomery county, so we decided that Solomon's Island was a good place to start. Back Creek Inn set the tone from the moment we arrived, with a warm greeting, beautiful garden and dock, and open attitude. We stayed in the Thyme room for 3 relaxing nights. The Inn's breakfasts were scrumptious, and we loved the homemade cookies that changed every day. We had lots of questions about restaurants and things to do, and Sara and Carol were very generous and knowledgeable about the area. From it's very central location, we hardly had to drive since we could walk to restaurants, a museum, and shops from the Inn. We had a goal of eating seafood every day, and we easily (and deliciously) accomplished this! The Inn reset our spirits by making us feel at home. Our room had a comfortable couch and reading chair in it, so between adventures, we read comfortably for a few hours. We loved the tomato plants that grew outside our window, and enjoyed having free wi-fi, even though we tried to remain unplugged. I also liked that there was a small fridge in the room to keep drinks cool, since we were there for a few days. This is a wonderful place to stay. It's so close to Montgomery County, but it feels a million miles away! We would highly recommend it to couples looking to relax in a town that is very accessible.
