Top 10 Maryland Bed and Breakfasts: Commodore Joshua Barney House
This gated Maryland estate, circa 1760, opens up to six beautifully-landscaped acres, and counts the Little Patuxent River’s scenic waters as one of its finer features. If you thought its blooming gardens and bricked patio were exquisite, wait until your eyes behold the Commodore Joshua Barney House’s equally inspired interiors.
The Commodore Suite – easily the inn’s most spacious accommodation, and arguably its most luxurious – pays tribute to the Commodore House’s namesake, Joshua Barney, who valiantly served in both the American Revolution and the War of 1812. High ceilings and original hardwood floors make the bedroom and sitting area a sight to behold, while heated towel racks and a glass-enclosed shower provide the utmost of comfort in the attached bath. You can even brush up on your early American history; this Maryland bed and breakfast offers biographies of its beloved hero and other historic documents for your enjoyment.
For those traveling to Maryland in summer, the Commodore Joshua Barney House’s exquisite gardens prove to be the highlight of warm weather getaways. A screened-in gazebo graces the grounds with its charming presence, and steps out to a patio that overlooks the lily pads and lotus flowers of the inn’s own water garden. Just beyond this quaint structure, brick paths lead to even more hidden treasures, including a bridge that spans the Little Patuxent River’s meandering waters.
