I'm always a little hesitant about B&B's, but this one was excellent and very professional. The room we stayed in was extremely comfortable and well-maintained. The breakfast in the morning was also very delicious. There were lots of nice little touches too -- cookies and coffees in the kitchen, a nice living room to sit in and read, and right on the water. I would highly recommend.
What an amazing jem on the water

I am an artist exhibiting at the Anne Marie Artsfest and I am from out of town. I was looking for a decent place to stay what working the show. What I found was Back Creek Inn. I read a few great reviews before coming and was looking forward to a great weekend. I had no idea what I would actually find. There is something truly amazing about this little jem in Solomon's. We were greeted by Carol and given the tour at check in. Our arrival was very welcoming and informative. We were shown to our room... The peppermint suite..... I can only say that the reviews and photos don't do it justice. This Bed and Breakfast is so well decorated and comfortable, you don't want to leave. The Breakfast.... That deserves its own paragraph.... We slept with our door to our room open to the screened in porch - we were woken up by the birds and crickets and the wonderful smell of coffee. Carol and her staff were already hard at work preparing the morning for all the guests. We joined the birds outside on the deck surrounded by lovely manicured gardens for a hot cup of java. Only to be welcomed by the staff asking us if we would like to partake in the eggs benedict for breakfast and if we would like to eat our breakfast outside on the deck or in the dining room. It was a gorgeous morning so we chose the deck. The seats were wiped of dew and we took our seats. We were served breakfast on the deck. I can only say it was a party in my mouth.... Wonderful food, wonderful setting, wonderful service, wonderful view. We plan to stay here every year while exhibiting at Artsfest. I am also planning another trip with my mother and sisters as this is such an exquisite location I must share it with loved ones. Check this Jem out for yourself - oh and don't forget to check all the drawers in your room.... You will find a wonderful surprise.

We stayed 4 nights at the Back Creek back in May this year after a recommendation from a family member and reading the excellent reviews on TA. All were correct. The inn is situated in the most idyllic location overlooking the water and surrounded by well tended and attractive gardens. A great place to switch off and relax. We stayed in the Camomile Room. Carol & her team made us feel very welcome and provided us with attractive country inn accommodation and delicious breakfasts.
I'm looking forward to my next visit

I just needed to get away and do a whole lot of nothing. I went on line and based on the enthusiastic ratings of other travelers, I decided to book at Back Creek Inn. From the pictures it looked exactly what I wanted my get away to be. When I arrived at the Inn, I was pleasantly surprised to see that it looked as good, if not much better, than the on-line pictures. Since I was traveling solo, I booked the smallest room, Sweet Marjoram. It was clean, comfortable, and nicely appointed. Almost every review mentions the breakfasts and so will I. They were absolutely beautiful and filling - who needed lunch! I fell in love with the grounds - I couldn't wait to get into one of the Adirondack chairs to read my book and watch the water. The local naval air station also gave a great air show that even included an air ship (blimp). Most of all it was the hospitality shown by Carol and her team that made my visit memorable. Thanks for taking such good care of me!

My husband and I chose Back Creek Inn to celebrate our 15th anniversary. It is a beautiful, charming B&B in a serene setting on the water. All of the staff were friendly, professional and helpful. Breakfasts were amazing and delicious. We stayed in Thyme for one night and the Lavender cottage for two. Thyme was spacious and comfortable. Lavender was our favorite because of its privacy, water view, and screened in porch. We enjoyed walking around town, eating at great restaurants, and touring St. Mary's County. Our kudos to Carole and staff!
