The Log Canoe Inn, formerly known as the Two Swan Inn, is now 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 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 regatta season.
Built in 1790, the Inn originally served primarily as a private residence during its two hundred year history. For a time after that, it famously served as the clubhouse of the Miles River Yacht Club, which is still located here in Saint Michaels. Through pictures, memorabilia, and sailing trophies spread throughout the rooms, you can reminisce on the unique history of the property. Today, the Inn still maintains antique furnishings and original long leaf yellow pine floors in order 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 in the main downstairs sitting room.
The Log Canoe Inn offers daily and weekly rentals with a panoramic view of the beautiful Saint Michaels Harbor. Being only two short blocks from Talbot Street, the main town road, the Inn 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 the Inn, and vessels over 30 feet at Higgins Yacht Yard & Marina, located right beside our property.
To share any pictures, memorabilia, or other items pertaining to the log canoes or the history of our property, please contact us. We highly value and pride ourselves on our extraordinary history, and would like our Inn to honor all log canoes, owners, skippers, crew members, and fans.
