We had a great weekend in St. Michaels, escaping the kids, eating crabs, sailing on the bay, and getting out for a run. Staying at Dr. Dodson's was the perfect place to aid in our getaway. Janet (the owner) was full of knowledge related to all things local. Her breakfasts were incredible and the Dodson King Room, where we stayed,...

Lovely historic bed and breakfast a short walk from the harbour and the main street. Beautiful room, tastefully furnished with a lovely veranda. A most charming and graceful host who provided lovely breakfasts, the fresh fruit with sorbet was particularly good. Quiet and relaxing this is the perfect place to base your stay in St.Michael’s.

Our stay at Dr. Dodson House was an absolute highlight of our trip to Washington, D. C., Virginia and Maryland. St. Michaels is delightful waterside town and Dr. Dodson House is very centrally located so once we parked the car outside, we could explore on foot with all the shops, attractions and restaurants just a short walk away. The owner...

This is a terrific B&B. Janet is a fantastic host and a gourmet cook. Her breakfasts were delicious. The B&B is very convenient to the Maritime Museum, restaurants and shops. So you can walk everywhere and don't need a car. The rooms are air conditioned and the bed had one of the most comfortable mattresses I have slept on. We...

Janet keeps a lovely house! Well-appointed and quiet, yet only steps away from the harbour, museum and shops. Only two rooms, with two more coming, so lots of personalized attention. A variety of sweet or savory breakfast options accompanied by fresh fruit and sherbet. Janet is knowledgeable about the local restaurants and attractions, making good recommendations that suit your interests....

My husband and I had never stayed at a B&B before, and we wanted to try the Dr. Dodson House for my birthday weekend. We were completely blown away by the wonderful experience.

We stayed here for our 5th wedding anniversary (we're from Baltimore) and had a wonderful time! The location of the Dr. Dodson house was perfect - 1 block from the main street and 1 block from the water. The house is so quaint with a lot of charm while still feeling very modern and updated. Janet, the innkeeper, was such...

I took my husband to Dr. Dodson House B&B for a special birthday. Everything turned out to be perfect. The house itself with furnishings and antiques was exactly what you would expect in a highly rated St. Michael's B&B. Janet, the innkeeper was friendly and helpful. She gave us recommendations for dinner and kept us entertained with funny stories at...
