10 Great Inns and Bed-and-Breakfasts Around the Chesapeake Bay
“For Romantics: The Brampton Inn…Among the cottages, you can find the proper amorous accoutrements—two-person hammocks, porch swings, a wood-burning fireplace, and outdoor Japanese-style soaking tubs.”
“The cottages offer unparalleled privacy and romance, each having their own whirlpool bath, while the Plantation rooms in the main house offer guests the feeling of stepping back in time with its elegant architectural details.”

Garden & Gun
“The Brampton Inn’s deep porch oozes charm.”
Food Culture of the South
The Local Palate
“The antebellum construction that makes up the bulk of the Brampton is peaceful, even romantic, with huge porches, quiet reading rooms and libraries meant for losing track of time, and hushed passage ways and stairwells where you might, every once in a while, come across another guest.”
The Best B&B Getaways: Brampton Inn
“…you will find yourself in a state of romantic sugar shock upon settling into the Brampton Inn’s new Mulberry Cottage, a cozy suite so secluded you could (if inclined) run naked through the garden in utter privacy.”
A “Proposal” Room with a View
“So many engagements take place at the Brampton Inn that owners created a proposal room with a 360-degree view of the inn’s 25 acres. The inn or groom-to-be provides a romantic CD, innkeepers scatter silk rose petals, and champagne and chocolates await.”
Romantic Seclusion: Brampton Inn
“There are so many biscotti and crisps and scones and teacakes on offer during afternoon tea in the dining room that Brampton Inn guests may not notice the fire roaring just behind them. No matter, as fireplaces in all the guest rooms let you bask in your own warm glow.”
Room for Romance
“An art of service; Breakfast at Brampton went far beyond sensible eating: We tried juices, fruits, muffins, tomato-and-goat-cheese omelet, sage sausage, and everything else posted on the day’s menu outside the dining room.”
Chestertown’s Brampton Inn Sets the Perfect Mood for Lovers
“The Greek Italianate Revival manor house is a stunning – and massive – antebellum dwelling. Everything about it is writ large: the wraparound porch and, inside, a carved three-story staircase flanked by an enormous parlor and a dining area set with individual tables. And that was before I saw the rooms: huge.”
National Geographic Traveler
“Oodles of walnut woodwork: doors, windows, stair balustrade. Afternoon tea. Jams made with fruit from the organic garden. When it’s time to get out and about there are Brampton-developed biking tours.”
Away From it All
Chesapeake Life Magazine
“The Brampton Inn specializes in seclusion…Amid twenty acres of woods and meadows located about a mile outside Chestertown, the Brampton Inn combines Eastern Shore plantation gentility —wide porches, a book-lined parlor, unusually large guestrooms furnished with custom-made antique reproductions—with twenty-first-century amenities. It’s not exactly a place to get away from it all; it’s a place to get away from all the bad stuff.
