The Farm House is a gem tucked away in Dames Quarter, MD. The house is decorated with lovely antiques, comfortable furniture and a large room for eating, chatting and relaxing. The screened in porch with a light breeze blowing through was lovely and two mother deer and their fauns came up to the apple tree and had lunch. The butterfly bush attracted large numbers of swallowtail butterflies.
The property is immaculate and each bedroom, with its own bath, is cozy and comfy. We cooked a lot and all the equipment worked well, plus the pantry was stocked with special dishes. The little sun room was a great place for morning coffee and conversation bedecked as it is with a huge collection of roosters and chickens.
This is my sixth visit to the Farm House and each time I marvel at the ambiance of the place and how it makes everyone feel at home in a safe and lovely setting.
Nancy: The reunion exceeded all of our expectations thanks in large part to the beautiful Farmhouse. My heartfelt thanks!
We enjoyed our stay immensely. Very clean, very comfortable, and very enjoyable. Will certainly return. The hosts were very accommodating and helpful with local knowledge and recommendations. The group was extremely impressed.

Our daughter and granddaughter accompanied my wife and me to a family reunion on Deal Island. We raved about The Farmhouse so much that we took several of my wife's cousins on personal tours. All were quite impressed. One cousin plans to schedule a future stay at the house.

You could tell from the minute you stepped in the door that this was a well maintained, beautiful inn. Each bedroom was custom designed with special treasures found in each--from handmade quilts to antique furniture. We enjoyed the sun room -- a screened in large patio, where we enjoyed each other's company, played games and just relaxed reading books. The owner was an interesting woman who was glad to answer our questions and took time to help us as we researched the area as a potential second home.

This is the 2nd stay at the Farm House by a group of friends, 5 couples. As with our previous stay, we found the Farm House perfect for relaxing, conversing, sharing meals, etc. The exterior is deceptive when it comes to the roominess indoors. Each couple had their own private (and beautifully decorated) bedroom and bathroom. Although old and filled w/ antiques, the house has all the modern conveniences and is very comfortable. The kitchen is well stocked w/ dishes, cooking utensils, appliances, etc. The location is nice, within sight of the bay, and very convenient to many local attractions. We did some biking and kayaking and visited a winery while there. The house is spotlessly clean but cozy and comfortable. I can easily recommend this for a nice, relaxing vacation spot.

My friends and I, usually 6-8 of us, rent The Farm House for scrapbooking retreats. We love going to The Farm House!!! Recently we've been trying to get out there two weekends a year because we love the house and location so much. The house itself is amazing... I can't think of a better word to describe it! I've never felt so comfortable and so "at home" any place other than at my own home. The home decor is beautiful and the area itself is very peaceful. Nancy and John, the owners, are simply a delight to visit with and are two of the most welcoming people I've ever had the pleasure of meeting. I'm pretty confident that anyone who decides to stay there would feel the exact same way.
Four TV crew personnel spent the evening there and shipped out for filming early next morning. FAR too short a time to enjoy this spectacular house and all its amenities. The living room with fireplace was our place to hang out. Would have made use of the kitchen and porch if more time. Highly recommend for anyone who'd like to spend a couple of days in the area. We are already making plans to return for a longer stretch. Many thanks to our gracious hosts!

The FarmHouse is an inviting place for a weekend of study on Leadership while activating our Creative Energy. Thanks to Jo for birthing the LACE project and to Nancy/John for providing an excellent location to relax, unwind and be inspired by nature, art, and great cooking on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. The FarmHouse also offers a sacred spot for doing T'ai Chi Chih! I recommend the LACE seminars and the FarmHouse for anyone looking for a creative retreat.

As a matter of fact we picked up good vibes, good memories, good fellowship... good everything! Nancy and John are outstanding hosts! We thank everyone who helped make it a delightful weekend for us.

I wanted to thank you for being such a great hostess. Your Farmhouse is wonderful. Friday night I had the best night’s sleep I have had in six years. You and John strike a perfect balance of engaged hosts. The Kayak’s and the evening bay trips were wonderful. It is easy to see why you are successful as a B-N-B- owner.

The Farmhouse is a perfect setting for both a family gathering and a business retreat. My family and I stayed for the Christmas Holidays in this lovely house. Beautifully decorated and comfortable, filled with antiques and a character of its own...we found it perfect for a variety of in-house activities as well as hikes, wading and feeding the chickens. The business retreat was successful because we needed comfort, restful surroundings, lovely bedrooms to catch up on sleep and we cooked our own meals...great bonding in an extraordinary kitchen...top of the line.

During the spring of 2007 I was fortunate to spend three perfect days at The Farm House with five other women, some of whom I had not seen for over forty years. We were treated by the owners to a life of luxury and relaxation. The Farm House is set on a beautiful site and is decorated with distinction and comfort in mind. I was able to purchase a handmade quilt that was exactly what I needed for my home. I highly recommend this lovely home for your home away from home! ENJOY!

The Farmhouse, situated on a quiet lane in Dames Quarter MD, gives new meaning to Maryland as "the land of pleasant living". It is truly a gem and place for rest, relaxation and rejuvenation. We spent a weekend there with 4 other couples in late January. There was space for everyone to have privacy, cook together comfortably and gather in the great room by a roaring fire. Bedrooms and baths were well appointed and tastefully decorated. Our only regret was it was too cold to enjoy the massive screened in porch and watch the ducks and geese on the pond. We consider it a treat to spend a weekend at The Farmhouse and plan to make this an annual sojourn.

This is one of the most beautiful establishments I've ever stayed in. The setting is peaceful and bucolic. The decor is exquisite--antiques, porches, homey touches like quilts, and lovely landscape with a pond. Upkeep is tiptop. Close to Tangier Sound, country walks, and birds galore. Truly restful, quiet, casual, and comfortable.
The Farm House in Dames Quarter was suggested to us as a place to stay while our house was being built in nearby Chance. We stayed there many times and always felt like it was a home away from home. The owner made us feel like one of the family and always had "our room" ready and waiting for us. The tranquil setting made the hassel of house building much easier.
