Small B&B well run by caring people. Excellent breakfast. Owners have a wealth of information about the area that they will share Would definitely return. Not far from the Oxford ferry. On main (Morris) Street. Quiet..

We can't say enough about the absolute loveliness of our hosts at the beautiful, welcoming, comfy Ruffled Duck Inn. We got in late and they were great helping us to get situated. Our luggage had been delayed the airport, and after a fabulous breakfast, they let us hang out past checkout while we waited for the luggage to be delivered...

We love this place! Joyce & Denny are wonderful hosts. The breakfasts are fantastic and imaginative and delicious. The inn is cozy with extremely comfortable beds. Oxford is a marvelous quit retreat. We've at the Ruffled Duck several times and we will go back again.

If you are looking for comfort, quiet and value for your Eastern Shore trip, you can't do any better than checking into the Ruffled Duck Inn. This 3 room B&B is right in the center of Oxford, an easy stroll from the marina (and the wonderful ice cream shop and the dockside restaurant there), a fine lunch or dinner at...

Very nice small B&B in the center of town just a block away from the park where you can have a wonderful sunset. I would have given this a 5 rating however the bed mattress was not the most comfortable to me.. this may be a personal taste though. The owners are truly wonderful people and very accommodating. The location...

We stayed here during a family visit. The room was very nice with a private bath. Toiletries were provided. The room was clean, comfortable, and quiet. There was an individual room air conditioner in our room that was very quiet and efficient. Each breakfast was not only very tasty, but the presentation was exceptional as well. Joyce took great pride...

The Ruffles Duck is a great little B and B in the quiet town of Oxford, Maryland. Our family loved everything. The two breakfasts were delicious, and kindly served by the wonderful hosts Joyce and Dennis. The table was set and decorated differently each morning. Food was creative and yummy. We loved the fires in the living room (which was...

Just returned from a stay at the Ruffled Duck Inn. Our room was comfortable and spacious, the innkeepers, Joyce and Dennis, are so welcoming and, of course, Joyce's breakfasts are extraordinary. Oxford moves at a lovely, slow pace which is a welcome change from the norm. Treat yourself to a couple nights of rejuvenation!

What a lovely experience! My now husband and I stayed here after our wedding reception in Oxford and we could not have been more pleased. It was the perfectly quiet and peaceful escape we needed after a night of nonstop action. The breakfast was fantastic! Coffee was abundant and the food kept coming! The innkeepers were an absolute delight as...

Just returned from two nights at the Ruffled Duck. Stayed in the Cape Cod 'suite' which is cute but a little tight (no room for night stands next to the bed) but nice, pleasant and very clean. The innkeepers are lovely folks who are quite willing to give tips and suggestions about things to do. Breakfasts were delicious! It was...

“All three rooms are nice with different motifs. Two have queens and one has a king. If you are very tall, you might hit your head on the walkway to the bathroom from one of the bedrooms if you aren't careful.”

“We stayed in the Cape Cod room, which was a queen bed. If you can get the room with the King it is a little bigger.”
