About Our Inn
A Maryland Bed and Breakfast Inn
Situated on Kent County, Maryland’s oldest land parcel, Huntingfield Manor was the hallmark of a 1200 acre estate deeded by Lord Baltimore to one of the Maryland Eastern Shore’s original settlers, Thomas Ringgold.
Salty tales persist of Huntingfield, christened “The Prevention of Inconvenience” (a reference to good moorings and cart paths) and it’s colorful past. A noted area archeologist believes the land might have originally been a Native American settlement and later a British Stamping House (tax bureau!). In the early 1900’s the property sported a horse racing track and later, with its abundance of waterfowl and game, a lavish hunt club.
Now, this rich heritage is expressed as luxurious comfort and serenity at the Inn at Huntingfield Creek. The land seems content to just be serenely beautiful for the enjoyment to all who come and stay at our Maryland bed and breakfast.
Let us know when you plan to arrive – we like to be as prepared as possible for your stay. As you turn into our gates, enjoy the long, pleasant pear tree lined driveway up to the white and bricked manor house and park at the right or in front. Our four dogs Java, Maggie, Bayla and Rosie are part of the welcoming committee. Arrival time is between 2-6pm. We will try to accommodate late arrivals by prior request.
After giving you a quick orientation of the property, we will show you to your lodging and answer any questions about where to dine, what to see and do during your stay.
We invite you to stay at our Maryland bed and breakfast and look forward to having you as a guest.
The Inn Grounds
When you stay at our bed and breakfast retreat, you’ll be surrounded by the natural beauty of the Maryland Eastern Shore. Our inn grounds spans 70 spacious, serene acres, so you never even have to leave the property during your stay to explore the Chesapeake Bay area’s picturesque scenery.
Explore The Grounds at Our Inn
Stroll towards the water down the path we call “The Grassy Promenade.” You’ll pass the Woodside Pond and Wedding Pergola. From there, you can wander along the tree line circling the whole property, or pick up the path and continue towards the water (about a ¼ mile total).
Nothing is more inviting on a Chesapeake summer’s day than meandering through the inn gardens, taking time to nose through the herb beds and enjoy the blooming shrubs and flowers.
All of our gardens were designed to flower successfully, starting with irises, then roses, peonies, hydrangeas, daylilies, and crepe myrtles.
The Inn at Huntingfield Creek is the perfect place to do bird watching. The Upper Chesapeake Bay is a treasure trove of resident and migratory birds. With four and arguably five separate eco-systems on the property, we enjoy an incredible variety of winged friends. Get up early, then tell your breakfast-mates about your sightings!
The land in Rock Hall and Kent County is rural, flat, and lightly-trafficked, making biking convenient and safe. Here at our inn, we’re happy to offer two bicycles for guests to use on a first-come, first-serve basis. Please stop by and ask one of us for a complimentary biking route map.
In addition to our bikes, we have four kayaks that guests can launch into our inlet. You’ll have a blast paddling around our secluded creek, or you can venture out into the bay.
If you want to kick back and lounge in the warm sun, head over to our sparkling-blue saltwater swimming pool and soak up the rays as you relax on the resort-style lounge chairs. Or, dive in, swim some laps and get your exercise in for the day. Plush, oversized towels are available for your use.
