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

Great hospitality, over 300 years in the making. Winter in charming Oxford and our vintage Inn. The droves of summer tourists have now left these Eastern Shores and an air of calm and tranquility return to these beautiful back roads and towns. Let our Winter Events and fabulous food tempt you out of hibernation.

Once 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.

We are closed Mondays and Tuesday until the end of April. Seven days from May 1 for the season.
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.
