The Robert Morris Inn 1710, the oldest Inn in America.

Great hospitality, 300 years in the making. Let us be your cozy Spring haven.

Once the home of Robert Morris who gained fame as "Financier of the Revolution". General and later President George Washington was a close friend and visited Robert Morris often. In more recent times author James Michener outlined his famous novel, Chesapeake here. More history is located here. Now the Eastern Shore's most unique historic restaurant with rooms under Master Chef Mark Salter and Innkeeper Ian Fleming.

Enter the Inn and step back over 300 years: a pristine yet historic interior welcomes with timber beams, panelled walls and open fires in the cooler months. Through to Salter's Tavern featuring historic red brick walls and old slate floors, with magnificent fires in these cooler months. This is a truly historic Inn, cosy with a natural patina running through. Friendly, great cuisine and understated professional service.

Enjoy the unique pleasures of a Ferry ride (April through November only) to shop in historic and bustling St Michaels, drive to the charming County Town of Easton with its great main street, tour the highways and byways of the Eastern Shore, returning each day to the calming comfort of our historic Inn and peaceful and charming Oxford.

Oxford itself is one of the most unique towns on the Eastern Shore. Historic and peaceful yet vibrant at the same time, as it remains so popular with sailors, cyclists, kayak'ers and those seeking refuge and restoration from an ever increasing mad world. Charming tree lined streets with immaculate historic homes, waterfront town park and even its own Beach. Conveniently to St. Michaels, Easton, and Cambridge. Learn more about our history at The Oxford Museum and about vacation activities and options at Talbot County Tourism.
