The Log Canoe Inn looks directly out at a waterfront view of the St. Michaels Harbor, and is nestled right in the heart of town, in the St. Michaels Historic District. Named in honor of the historic log canoe sailing vessels, built in the harbors of the Chesapeake Bay, each of our six rooms are named after one of these historic vessels. Our property includes two historic buildings. The "main house" is the original residence, and was built in 1790. The "sail shed" is a cottage style building that sits right beside the main house, and was built sometime before the 1950's. The main house was primarily used as a private residence during its two hundred year history. From 1921 until 1930, it was the first original clubhouse of the Miles River Yacht Club. The house was then converted into one of the first boarding houses in St. Michaels. The sail shed was originally used as just that - a sail shed - storing boat sails and spars, until being converted into private guest rooms. Many renovations have been performed over the years to give our property new life and luxury amenities, but we strive to still keep the same history and charm that the home held hundreds of years ago.
The Log Canoe Inn sits peacefully at the end of Carpenter Street, looking over a panoramic waterfront view of the harbor. Being only a short walk from Carpenter Street Saloon, a true "local" bar, you may even run into some log canoe sailors, especially during the summer regatta season. Our property is centrally located, and within a comfortable walking distance to everywhere in town. Guests may travel by boat or car, and dock in our private slips or park in our private off-street parking lot, then take a stroll through town and discover the ambiance and history St. Michaels has to offer.
