We were recent guests, staying in "The Baud" room. If you prefer modern accoutrements, this is not the place for you; but if you appreciate the Victorian, this one is everything you would expect in an historic residence. Our innkeepers could not be more accommodating...More
Guy says: Recently, myself and 7 of my friends had an outstanding weekend in and around Snow Hill, MD. We spent 3 days kayaking and camping and our last evening we found ourselves at the River House. We had reserved the Cypress House which is...More
Excellent location, amenities, and service only 30 minutes from Ocean City and Assateague Island. Rick and Dwayne were excellent hosts.

If cigarette smell is...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.
