The Advantages of a Mid-Week Stay in Chestertown

Certainly the vast majority of business at our Chestertown Inn occurs on the weekends.  That is simply the way most people live: work Monday through Friday, get away on Saturday and Sunday.  For those lucky enough to be retired, or those whose time off is during the week, or perhaps just the independently wealthy among…

The first canning of the year in Brampton’s kitchen…

  Last week we had a surprise deal:  the Future Farmers of America club  at Kent County High School over-ordered strawberries.  (Baker extraordinaire Carole’s daughter is a  member, so we had an “in”).  We used a lot in our breakfast dishes, but couldn’t resist putting up a few quarts of jam.   As this month draws to a close,…

A blog post about a blog post….

Many guests mention to us that they like our website a lot, and that the pictures are very accurate representations of what is actually here at the inn.  This is thanks to the wonderful team  at Jumping Rocks Photography in Philadelphia who are responsible for the vast majority of the photos on our site.
