To be as much “Garden, Farm and Chesapeake Bay to Plate” as possible is our goal!

We aim to serve straightforward food with an emphasis on quality and simple artistry at our Maryland inn. In addition to using fresh fruit, berries and vegetables during the growing season from our own organic garden we shop at the many fruit and vegetable farm stands in our area and the Saturday farmer’s market in Chestertown.

A local meat and egg producer delivers sausage and fresh free-range eggs weekly to the Brampton. We are very fortunate to live so close to the Chesapeake Bay and love to integrate seafood to our breakfast and tea selections.

For a short period of time during the 19th century the Brampton Bed and Breakfast Inn was a peach plantation. In season no breakfast or afternoon tea will be complete without that delicious fruit and you can look forward to something “peachy” every day of the week.
