Property Information


Swanendele Inn is an elegant, family-owned country inn nestled on the shore of the Chesapeake Bay and St. Jerome’s Creek. Its quality is reflected in dozens of excellent reviews leading to its recent induction in the  "SELECT REGISTRY OF  DISTINQUISED INNS OF NORTH AMERICA" - the ONLY Inn thus honored in Southern Maryland! In 2020 we were named the "Best New Inn" in Maryland, in 2020  among "Fifteen Best Inns in the Northeast and in 2022 "Among 13 Most Romantic in the Northeast". We have consistently maintained our FIVE STAR rating. 
The Inn is close to St. Mary’s City and St. Mary's College; the College of Southern Maryland, Point Lookout,  as well as Patuxent Naval Air Station and Webster Field. St. Mary’s County offers history, outdoor recreation, and water, water everywhere! St. Mary’s has some of the earliest and finest colonial sites in the nation, War of 1812, and Civil War sites, and a rich maritime history illuminated by four picturesque lighthouses. From Amish farms steeped in tradition to the latest in aviation – St. Mary’s has it all for you to enjoy! We offer "Private Dining" by Chef Miguel by prior request. See the excellent reviews on Trip Advisor.  We also offer  paddleboards, kayaks and canoes for rent on our small, private beach - ready to explore St. Jerome's inlet and the Chesapeake Bay.
Swanendele Inn was constructed in traditional Southern Maryland style, with wraparound porches, multiple decks, and waterfront views from every window. Notwithstanding the “times gone by” charm of the inn, Swanendele features the latest in water and energy-saving features, such as geo-thermal heating and AC, triple-pane windows, and energy-star appliances. The suites and every room afford natural stone, thermostat-controlled fireplaces, ceiling fans, white oak floors, and marble/granite baths. The suites offer jacuzzi tubs for two with a divine view of the water and sunset – each with built-in champagne coolers. The house is tastefully furnished with the owners eclectic collection of artwork and antiques gathered from all over the world.
Suites have private decks, wet bar double Jacuzzi, extra large bathroom with private toilet.  Spacious common areas for breakfast and lounging.  Three common decks and wrap around porches.  Complimentary hot breakfast. Complimentary ice, tea, coffee.
The Swanendele property of 3 acres features nearly 800 feet of wraparound waterfront and a 1-acre of state-owned “wetland.” The property has been landscaped to preserve the natural character of the land and vegetation but colorful gardens have been added, providing year-round greenery and seasonal flowers. Swanendele Inn is located in Ridge, MD on historic Southern Maryland’s Western Shore, some 70 miles from Washington, DC, Baltimore, Richmond, VA, and 12 miles South of PAX and 7 miles north of Point Lookout at the confluence of the Potomac River and the Chesapeake Bay. As St. Mary’s prepares for its’ 400th anniversary, the owners hope and trust that Swanendele Inn will become the flagship of St. Mary’s hospitality. An ideal location for events - company retreats, meetings, elegant small weddings and similar events.
