Facing out towards a panoramic view of the St. Michaels Harbor, the Log Canoe Inn is named in honor of the historic log canoe sailing vessels, built in Saint Michaels and other local ports around the Chesapeake Bay. Each of our six rooms and suites are named after a famous log canoe, and display pictures, trophies, and other memorabilia unique to that vessel. Located at the end of Carpenter Street, and just a short walk to Carpenter Street Saloon, a true "local" bar, you may even run into some log canoe sailors, especially during the summer regatta season.
The Log Canoe Inn offers waterfront rooms and suites, all with a view of the beautiful Saint Michaels Harbor. Being only two short blocks from Talbot Street, the main town road, the property is within a comfortable walking distance to everywhere in town, but still sits back far enough to maintain a private and tranquil atmosphere. If you are traveling by boat, we can accommodate vessels under 30 feet at our slips, and vessels over 30 feet at a slip over at Higgins Yacht Yard & Marina, located right beside our property.
Built in 1790, the main house was primarily a private residence. From 1921 until 1930, it served as the original clubhouse of the Miles River Yacht Club. Today, the main house still maintains its antique furnishings and original long leaf yellow pine floors, to keep the same history and charm it held over two hundred years ago. During the summer months, our guests can enjoy the view on our spacious lawn by relaxing down by the water, while during the winter months they can enjoy the ambiance and warmth of the crackling fireplace.
To share any pictures, memorabilia, or other items pertaining to the Chesapeake Bay log canoes or the history of our property, please contact us. We highly value and pride ourselves on our extraordinary history, and would like to honor all log canoes, owners, skippers, crew members, and fans.
