The River Gem B&B
Come for the comfortable beds and stay for the delicious breakfasts! Choose from options such as buttermilk waffles, Irish steel-cut oatmeal, French toast, fresh fruit salad, homemade pastries, breakfast sausage, ham or bacon, eggs, quiche, juices, coffee, and a variety of specialty teas. We do our best to accommodate dietary choices or restrictions. Enjoy afternoon tea in our café-style dining room, complete with free wi?.
Upon arrival at the Bed & Breakfast, park your car in our private lot. You will immediately notice the front and side porches, inviting you to soak up the sunshine or sit cozy, protected from the weather. Relax in the luxurious parlor, and maybe read by the fireplace. All cultures and languages are welcome and appreciated. In consideration of the health and comfort of our guests, The River Gem BnB is a “breathe easy" property; smoking and pets are not permitted on the premises.
Pocomoke City is known as the “Friendliest Town on the Eastern Shore" and rests on the banks of the Pocomoke River. Two short blocks from The River Gem BnB, you will find the boardwalk and Nature Trail on the river, alongside the Delmarva Discovery Museum and the Dockside restaurant. Also on the main street is the Mar-Va Theater, an impressive historic theater.
Pocomoke City is in close proximity to the Chesapeake Bay, and the Atlantic Beaches, notably Chincoteague and Assateague National Park, as well as the NASA Flight Facility at Wallops Island. Plenty of opportunities exist to bike, canoe, kayak, hike, fish, crab, shop, and enjoy local restaurants. Pocomoke is the perfect place to stop on your way South to Carolina resorts or North to New England. We are located halfway between Dover and Virginia Beach on US 13. Come explore the Eastern Shore, one of the most visited vacation destinations in the U.S.!
We have had the pleasure of many B&Bs, and experienced many hosts on top of their craft, but this place goes up and beyond that. The personalized menus, the custom-made granola, the delicious breakfast. The host, attentive when needed, but not intrusive.
Highly recommended if visiting within 100 miles of the area, and a place we look forward to going back to and being spoilt again.
