Mike and Eileen spelled in Scrabble pieces

Not just another wedding. . .

We talk a lot about weddings here at the Brampton.  Our elopement and intimate Maryland wedding packages have  become very popular, and it’s so much fun to share pictures.  Like this one: Mike and Eileen eloped here in late June.  While relaxing on the patio outside of their cottage, Eileen got creative with her flowers, the rings and…

Things You Don’t See Everyday…

Here’s a post about some things you don’t see every day at the Brampton Inn… There’s something about  Independence Day that must really take a toll on people.  Especially when it falls on or near a weekend, it seems to be a time when folks like to pack in as much fun and activity as possible.…

Gardens Galore at the Eastern Shore

Please forgive us if we tend to be a little repetitive about  the natural beauty of our outdoor surroundings.  It’s just that every spring, things start blooming and popping out of the ground and it suddenly becomes so lush and vibrant… we can get carried away by it all: talking with guests about the gardens, taking…
