Skipjack Inn

A Secluded Guest House on the Banks of the Yeocomico River


Approaching The Skipjack Inn, it is easy to imagine a waterman mooring his skipjack before making his way to the white-washed farmhouse for a well deserved rest. Today, this 1912 waterfront home has been extensively renovated with your enjoyment in mind.

The Skipjack Inn is located on a secluded point overlooking the scenic Yeocomico River at Port Kinsale Marina & Resort. At The Skipjack Inn, you can enjoy the character and charm of a turn-of-the-century waterman’s home without sacrificing comfort.

Four guest rooms have been tastefully decorated with antiques and Chesapeake Bay maritime artwork. Three of the four guest rooms are named for an historic skipjack, a sail boat used by watermen for oyster dredging in the Chesapeake Bay, Yeocomico and Potomac Rivers.

Each guest room at the Skipjack Inn has its own private bath, and individual temperature control for the optimum comfort of our guests. All of our rooms feature luxury linens including our four hundred thread count one hundred percent cotton sateen sheets, thick spa towels, and cozy guest robes. For added convenience, all rooms are equipped with hair-dryers and clock radios. A guest kitchenette is available on the main floor of the Inn.

Relaxing water views of the Yeocomico River make the Skipjack Inn a pleasant retreat at the end of the day. Rod Porter, who is one of our owners, adores watching the sun set from the porch of the Skipjack Inn with a glass of white wine. We suspect you will too.
