Crab Roll Picnics :: Summer on Maryland’s Eastern Shore

If you need encouragement to visit the Eastern Shore this summer, how about free crab rolls??  Starting on May 11, and running through July, stay two nights at the Brampton Inn mid-week (Sunday through Thursday) and you’ll receive a complimentary Crab Roll Picnic! Think lobster rolls like in Maine, but better: with delicious Maryland blue crab meat. Just the thing to revive the road weary and the crab-deprived!

The picnic comes in a little cooler with 2 delicious crab rolls, two giant oatmeal cookies, and two pieces of fresh fruit.  Bring your own six pack, or our delicious and ice cold well water is always on tap!  Enjoy it on the porch, in your room or under a tree in the shade, picnic style.

It’s our way of thanking you for visiting with us during the week.

Mid week visits are more popular during the summer months, when folks take mini vacations, or even long vacations.  Chestertown is in a nicely centralized location to be your home base while exploring the Eastern Shore.  A multi day visit allows plenty of time to enjoy the shops and restaurants here in Kent County, and also venture further afield to some of the surrounding towns.  Chesapeake City is an adorable town on a canal only 40 minutes from here.   Easton, St. Michaels, and Annapolis are all day trips about an hour away.  A bit further and you can visit Longwood Gardens or Winterthur.

Just make sure to allow time for your picnic!
