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

Fall and winter like the other seasons, have their unique charms. Gone are the droves of tourists clogging our pretty country roads and County's towns assume a character of tranquility.

Let us tempt you out of hibernation with stunning water views, wonderful food from our kitchens and roaring fires in our tavern, softening the edges of these bitter months.

Whilst others shut up shop and head south, we at The Robert Morris Inn step it up and put together a wonderful fall and winter program of events and dinners that celebrate this unique season on The Eastern Shore.

Once Riverview House, the home of Founding Father 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.

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.


Unfortunately we do not have an elevator and some of the stairs are quite steep, if you have mobility issues please contact us. Due to the age and nature of our building, we do not have disabled specific bedrooms.
