Wine tasting may not be at the forefront of your mind when planning a trip to Maryland’s Eastern Shore, but it’s a wonderful way to spend a quiet fall afternoon! There are several delicious Maryland wineries within easy driving distance of our Bed and Breakfast, too, offering you an outstanding opportunity to sip and swirl your way through the beautiful countryside.
The Chesapeake Wine Trail, centered, of course, by the stunning Chesapeake Bay, is home to some truly delicious wine. More than a dozen Maryland wineries are found in this region, all of which produce wines that pair exquisitely with the fresh and delicious seafood you’ll enjoy here. The Eastern Shore of Maryland is definitely a destination worth experiencing, especially during these quiet months of fall – and it’s an adventure made more delicious when you visit these wonderful wineries.
Local wines are the only indulgent reason to visit the Eastern Shore, though. Our luxurious Bed and Breakfast, located in the quaint seaside town of Rock Hall, is an enchanting place to relax & unwind. We offer you unparalleled luxury, gorgeous views, and exceptional hospitality. Book your room at our Eastern Shore Bed and Breakfast today!
