“My husband and I were married at the Tidewater Inn on Saturday, October 8, 2011. We could not be happier with our choice in a wedding ceremony and reception venue! The Inn is gorgeous and offers many options for a ceremony and reception. Our ceremony was held in the beautiful courtyard and our reception in the Gold Ballroom. Our coordinator, Melanie, was fantastic!! She was so organized and flexible! We have received endless compliments on the food and everyone’s overall experience. Highly Recommend!”


“We cannot say enough how pleased we are with how our wedding turned out at Tidewater Inn. We were so stressed that things wouldn’t go as planned, especially with some ugly weather looming, but everything went off without a hitch (no pun intended)!

In all, we received so many compliments from our guests about this venue. From the humorous bartender and helpful wait staff, to the decadent cuisine and the elegant yet quaint hotel. The Tidewater really made our wedding day perfect, and we highly recommend to anyone planning to get married on the Eastern Shore!”


“The Tidewater Inn is historic, beautifully decorated, intimate and warm. We planned to have our ceremony in the back courtyard, which is well landscaped with plants, flowers and a little fountain. There is also an outdoor terrace in front with a brick fire place for chilly evenings. Our cocktail hour and reception were held at the Tidewater as well, so the flow of the evening went perfectly. There is even a spiral staircase where we captured some GORGEOUS photos. Elegant but very comfortable, a great balance.”

“Recently my wife and I traveled to Easton, Maryland for our son’s wedding. We stayed at the Tidewater Inn for four days and four nights. The Tidewater is an historic and very charming place to stay. Centrally located in Easton, it is everything you would want in a place as historic and beautiful as Easton, Maryland. The hotel staff is attentive but not intrusive; the food was beyond excellent and very reasonably priced. The rooms were clean, cozy and the bed was great – best sleep I have ever had in a hotel bed. I will be making the Tidewater my home away from home whenever I travel to Easton.”


“My husband and I were extremely pleased by the quality of the wedding reception at the Tidewater Inn. EVERYTHING WENT SMOOTHLY! Need I say more? The staff was outstanding. Our wedding coordinator was beyond what we had expected. Our guests, many from the Easton area, have gone back for dinner after having had fabulous food at our reception. If I did not know where to go for a source, we were given the appropriate information. We were never disappointed. If I had to do my reception all over again, the Tidewater Inn is hands down the only place I would consider.”
