Tilghman Island - Love Burns Bright Here, Even In The Colder Months

On the eastern shore of the Chesapeake Bay, close to major cities yet a world apart, visitors will find a very special place … Talbot County, Maryland. Steeped in history, blessed with natural beauty year ‘round, and dedicated to cultivating both its cultural sophistication and its small-town pleasures, it may be the best-kept travel secret in America.

Talbot County has long been known for its splendid recreational opportunities, of course, especially those on full display in the summer and fall. Recent years have upped the ante, however, especially for lovebirds seeking a romantic winter retreat: first-rate dining options showcase seasonal ingredients; accommodations are irresistibly intimate and enchantingly eclectic; the shopping is everything a fashionista (and her swain) could ask for; and the subtle beauty of the Chesapeake Bay is breathtaking. In classic Talbot County style, every town has its own unique charms for the amorously inclined. Here are highlights of just a few of them in timelessly lovely Tilghman Island:
  • Romance and relaxation unite in a pairing made in heaven at The Tilghman Island Inn. Cocktails and a board game by the fire in the lounge ... dinner à deux at its sophisticated, award-winning restaurant, Isabel’s ... and a soaking tub for two in one of its luxurious guest rooms ....
  • Lazy lovers can unwind in the suite overlooking the harbor (Nellie Byrd), enjoy the living room fireplace, and succumb to gourmet breakfasts at the Lazyjack Inn, a beautiful retreat offering singular hospitality in a serene natural setting.
  • At the Chesapeake Wood Duck Inn, Chef Jeff Bushey prepares dinner for the inn’s guests as they enjoy the ambiance of Dogwood Harbor.
  • Sunsets at Black Walnut Point ... for those in the know, no more need be said.
