  • Introduction


    Built in 1906 by Clarence Davis, foremost yacht builder on the Bay, Solomons Victorian Inn is still a focal point in this small village, which continues to retain the flavor of a seafaring town of a hundred years ago.

    Solomons Victorian Inn is perfect for the couple looking for the ideal getaway as well as the business person looking for a truly relaxing climate. Ideally situated for long strolls along the harbor or on the river walk along the Patuxent River, visitors can also find small shops in which to browse and fine restaurants for dining. A ten minute drive can put you on forested paths leading to the open shores of the Chesapeake or towering cliffs overlooking the Bay.
