This is Lee-Anne now - we did go into Baltimore to collect our boxes that we had shipped over prior to leaving - I have put a couple of pics in - the clock tower building was a shot as we were trying to navigate our way out of the one way streets back to the freeway to head home to the peace and quiet of Pleasure Cove Marina.
I spent today exploring the grounds and buildings of the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in St. Michaels, MD.
The grounds have multiple buildings, and my first stop was to the boat yard where craftsmen still actively build and repair wooden boats. They also hold weekend apprentice courses that people can sign up for to assist with a portion of building a new boat. The man working in the building said they often have the same people return ...

Historical Traveler Reviews George Brooks House B&B Saint Michaels
My wife and I stumbled across the George Brooks House Bed & Breakfast while looking for a place in St. Michales for a list minute escape. We are gald we did. Our only regret was that we could not stay longer.
Loved the George Brooks House. Excellent!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Having stayed at many B&B's in the country and Europe over last 15 years, I can can say without any reservation that the George Brooks House B&B was in the the top 5% of the best B7B's that I have ever visited. My stay was excellent!
I found the rooms and common area extremely clean and well decorated.
It appears to have been refurbished just recently. I can tell you, the traditional gourment-like breakfast was just wonderful. It provided the needed energy to tour the St. Michael's area.
I found the host extremely friendly and accomandating, almost like a family friend. I also had the opportunity to meet the owner briefly and I found him friendly and helpful.
We will definitely be back next year!!!!!!!!!!

I couldn't agree more with the positive reviews and am totally mystified by the one negative review. The George Brooks House is stunning to the eye and most pleasing to the palette. The management was very friendly, the service prompt, and the room was spectacular.
I was a guest at this inn for a wedding in July 2003. The bride and groom rented the entire place for the weekend. While the rooms were lovely and the pool and grounds very nice, we were not provided a full breakfast on the second morning of our 2 night stay (despite representations to the contrary and the rather high price for our room). The owner/host seemed to think he was also a guest, taking a nap in the pool's floating lounge chair on the afternoon we arrived and hanging around the pool the entire afternoon. He complained in our presence about having to clean up after his guests. He was obviously short-staffed for the weekend, although we could not understand why he agreed to the booking if he was not prepared to deal with it. Several letters/e-mails sent to him by guests, including myself, to complain about the lack of full breakfast and the host's general bad attitude were met with excuses, but no apologies. I will never stay at this B&B again and certainly will not recommend it to anyone, especially for a wedding or any event involving a large group of people. The owner has a lot to learn about the hospitality business -- we found him to be condescending and arrogant.
My wife and I were looking for a couple of days out of the "rat race" and found the ideal spot...The George Brooks House in St. Michael's, Maryland. Set about 1/2 mile outside of town, it is the only area B&B with an inground pool and hot tub for relaxation. The rooms (8) were beautifully decorated in Victorian era charm, and unlike a lot of B&Bs, each room had it's own bathroom. Excellent full breakfast was served in the formal dining room or covered outdoor patio with fresh fruit as a starter. Innkeeper Will Workman is friendly and likes to share some of the history of the inn and local area with guests. He also is a good source of dining options in the area. An extra attraction of the inn is a 2 hour skipjack cruise on the Rebecca T. Ruark with Captain Wade Murphy, Jr.. This cruise was extremely informative and entertaining.
Home away from home
The host of the George Brooks B&B made us feel right at home immediately upon our arrival. For the entire weekend we could not have been more comfortable or comforted. George Brooks House has a special feel whether it was watching a wild thunderstorm with lightning surrounding you while you sip champagne from the very comfortable covered deck or watching a pair of eagles soar overhead while sipping a cold drink while lazing around the beautiful setting of the garden surrounded pool, Will could not have made us feel more at home unless he had made us fix our own breakfast. Fortunately, he did not and the two mornings' breakfasts we had were delightful. Four thumbs-up to the George Brooks House B&B and its Host. Thank you, Will.
Top of the Line
What a beautiful B&B! Everything is top of the line. The owner has cut no corners and could not be more accommodating. Our room was on the second floor with French doors that opened onto a covered balcony overlooking the pool and gardens. Exceptionally clean and beautifully decorated. Pool and hot tub were great. The George Brooks House is a step above most B&B's. The history of the building was of great interest as were the pictures of the restoration of it. We will definitely return!
We can't rave enough about this place! Will is a wonderful and welcoming host, and the house is absolutely beautiful. The history of his home is amazing, and the photos from before and after the renovation show just how lovingly the house was refurbished. No wonder it won a major restoration award!
Wow. Our room was beautiful. The pool was great. The hot tub was nice. The breakfast was yummy. The hosts were pleasant. The location was spectacular. The sunset views were amazing. The DVD selection was eclectic. We had a great time.
