What our customers are saying...
My husband and I stayed at The Inn at Brome Howard for our anniversary and had a wonderful time. The innkeeper was warm and friendly and the room was absolutely beautiful. It felt like being able to spend the night in a house museum--and the views of the river were to die for. I could have sat up looking out the window for hours.

There are few things we enjoy more than a few days of downtime at a quiet, romantic B&B; in the midst of nature, beauty, and/or history. I happened upon this place looking for such places in Eastern Maryland, and it is absolutely what we were looking for in both ambiance & location. Despite some annoyances that were, admittedly, somewhat petty, I absolutely recommend this place for a romantic getaway.

This B&B is one of the nicest we have ever visited and we have been innkeepers ourselves for 18 years. Tara is an excellent hostess, friendly but low key and very attentive to the wishes of the guest. The history and ambience plus the comfort and QUIET make this a memorable B&B. We enjoyed everything about the Inn and I will be returning to enjoy another night's stay plus lunch at the Inn.
I can't say enough wonderful things about the Inn and especially, Tara Jensen, the innkeeper. In spite of a weekend of rainy weather, her warmth and gracious nature made this a comfortable and cozy weekend with friends. Breakfast was so yummy, the accommodations perfect (who expects strong WiFi in such as remote and historic inn?) and the hospitality exceptional. Felt like I was visiting in the home of a close relative or friend. A definite "to do" on a trip to St. Mary's City.
I hope we're not spoiled for any future B&B visit elsewhere. This was our first, and the Inn at Brome Howard did not disappoint. Tara, the innkeeper, was friendly and accommodating at every step. This was a spur of the moment getaway for my husband and me, calling the morning of our anticipated arrival to book the Calvert room. We arrived around 9 pm, only to find a welcome hostess, cookies and chocolates waiting, and a lovely room that was quite comfy. Breakfast the next morning was delicious, and Tara gave several ideas of activities and restaurant suggestions.
Stayed overnight in late September and enjoyed having the inn to ourselves. We stayed in the Ark and Dove suite and couldn't have been more pleased. From fresh cookies and water bottles in our room to the wonderful breakfast the next morning it was really hard to come back to the hustle and bustle.

Had a delightful stay at the Inn at Brome Howard where our expectations were surpassed thanks to Tara Jensen, the gracious innkeeper whose expertise insured that my daughter and I enjoyed a lovely visit. We had the spacious, light-filled Ark & Dove rooms (with private bath) that make up the entire third floor, so there were fabulous 360 views of the property. Everything I hope for in a B&B or small inn was there: charming antique furniture and accessories; an absolutely comfortable bed with top-notch mattress and nice linens; a Keurig machine with a variety of K-cups to choose from; plenty of books about the rich local history; a comfy rocking chair; a large full bath stocked with thick thirsty towels, nice toiletries, and hair dryer; and finally -- an absolutely delicious breakfast (ours was: oj, coffee, berry muffin, fruit cup, crab quiche, and sausage). Extra welcome treat: chocolates and freshly-made cookies!

Expressions of St. Mary's recently took over the Inn at Brome Howard and it is a spectacular place to visit, stay, have lunch, brunch or host your special event. The new staff are cheerful and respectable. The food has no match. The most wonderful casual lunches can be had in the beautifully decorated historic home, overlooking the river. The grounds are fantastic, they share trails with Historic St.Mary's City and an entire day can be spent exploring the trails and enjoying a stop at the Brome Howard for lunch. I recommend the Brome Howard to all my friends and family as well as recommend staying at the Inn to clients and colleagues when they are visiting the Naval Air Station, no traffic on the way to or from and you are treated like royalty during your stay.

History lovers, old house lovers, and just lovers will appreciate the welcoming, romantic accommodation at the Inn at Brome Howard. Our beautiful and comfy room (we chose the rosy red walls of Calvert's Retreat), a friendly and responsive innkeeper, Tara, and a delicious spread of a Sunday buffet breakfast included in the room rate set this inn above other area lodgings. Add the lovely historic setting overlooking St. Mary's River with its pastoral grounds and walking paths that lead back to the fascinating sites of St. Mary's City and you've got plenty to do, or not. I'm so glad there are places like this -- what a treat. We enjoyed our relaxing stay here and hope to return.
