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 are named after a famous log canoe and display pictures and other memorabilia unique to that vessel. The sitting room of the main house displays photos of the fleet and trophies awarded from regatta races, sponsored by local yacht clubs. 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. 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 a 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 sitting room.
The Inn offers daily, weekly, and monthly rentals with a panoramic view of the historic 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 quiet and tranquil atmosphere. If you are traveling by boat, we have docking available for smaller sized boats right at the Inn, and docking for larger sized boats right beside our property at Higgins Yacht Yard & Marina.
Come get away and unwind while you experience everything the town has to offer!
