Each guest room is manicured to appeal to a sense of traditional décor with furnishings that reflect the downtown Easton setting on Maryland’s coast. Luxury suites include large living spaces as well as recently redesigned bathrooms, carpet, drapes, furniture and fixtures.

Step Back in Time

In 2019, the Tidewater Inn purchased the nearby Inn at 202 Dover, a historic mansion built in 1874, renaming it the Tidewater House. Just a short block from downtown Easton’s shopping, art galleries and Avalon Theatre, it offers six guestrooms furnished with antique and authentic reproduction furniture.

Tidewater Inn Sign

The Inn itself dates all the way back to 1712 when Talbot County Courthouse moved from Oxford to what is now Easton. However, what would eventually become the inn we know today was destroyed by fire in 1944 and only re-opened in 1949, this time under its current moniker. Since then, Tidewater Inn has gone through numerous renovation projects to bring the classic building into the modern era. From rood repair to new ballrooms, updated artwork and refurbished fireplaces, Tidewater’s owners have worked tirelessly to make your stay exquisite.

Fine Dining

Bas Rouge is perhaps one of the best restaurants anywhere in Maryland. Upscale European cuisine is served in a contemporary setting, just a block and a half away from Tidewater Inn, where Viennese and Parisienne influences reign supreme. A world-class wine list is elevated by excellent service that further complements a menu which takes advantage of local products, grown by the finest regional purveyors and farms. Some of the favorites from Chef Harley Peet’s kitchen include the sweetbreads, an award-winning oyster stew, Jurgielewicz duck breast and stuffed quail.
