Terrific place for a mini vacation ! A clean, well run historic inn by the Pocomoke River.
Very comfortable beds and furnishings in the rooms. We received a warm welcome from the owners, Dwayne and Rick, and Orca(a playful three year old black Labrador!).
Quiet night in the poster bed of the East Room which was closest to the street. Great breakfast, including the tastiest, lightest waffles (called the Overnight Waffles because preparation begins the night before serving). Hosts Rick and Dwayne were friendly and (rightfully) proud of the...More
This review is long overdue - my wife and I have stayed here at least a dozen times in the past few years (and we are days away from our next visit!). It is the halfway point between where we start, and where we are...More

Besides seeming to denote a sense of scale and exclusivity, the word aligns the facility with a tradition of full-service care - you, your horse, your carriage, your servants were provided food and shelter. Inns often were the only public place a traveler could get food and shelter, often the only place a villager could enjoy food, drink, and a room all in one - the other public social center for the village other than the church or mosque. All those functions split apart into hotels, taverns, pubs, restaurants though now they are often back under one establishment. The word has a rural connotation, but think maybe it's from the Crusades - from the Ottoman word "han" - less comprehensive than a caravansary, more like the Japanese inn or ryokan.
