Great place to stay. The room was nice and very clean. The innkeeper Kate was very helpful about things to do and places to go. She really went out of her way for us. She even picked us up from the beach when the tram was running late. I'm diabetic and really needed to get back. The Cafe was great... More

Love this place and Kate the innkeeper just adds to the charm. There is a great view of the harbor from the screened in porch and the rooms are clean and comfortable. Take advantage of the bikes that are available to ride into town. We did and had a blast. Try the Harbor Shack they've got some great seafood. What... More

I spent a night at the Black Duck Inn just before Memorial Day weekend. The inn was cozy and comfortable and a great value; I had a clean, sizable room with its own bathroom and small screen porch. I spent some time with Kate, the innkeeper, on the front porch, watching the boats in the marina just across the road;... More

Stayed at this Inn for our anniversary. Enjoyed the stay, especially on the front porch. We had a great view of the sailboats and work boats. Kate had bikes for us to use to ride around town. We really enjoyed the stay. Her recommendations of the town were great.

To get a real feel for Rock Hall, stay at the Black Duck Inn and take advantage of owner innkeeper Kate, whose knowledge and personality will make your stay. The inn is comfortable and ideally located, breakfast (weekends only) delish and served in the perfect setting over looking the harbor. The atmosphere laid back, offering total relaxation or stimulating conversation,whichever... More

My husband and I recently stayed at the Black Duck Inn for a few nights. The innkeeper, Kate, couldn't have been more accommodating. In the morning there was coffee and homemade coffee cake which we had on the porch. (weekends only). While walking around Rock Hall you will be greeted with a friendly welcoming wave.

We booked at this Inn after all of the great reviews on Tripadvisor. We were not disappointed. My wife, myself and another couple stayed here for a weekend getaway. The place is beautiful. The rooms are large and very comfortable. Each room is tastefully decorated with antiques and very comfortable beds. There is also a screen porch and a dock... More

This place is the only accommodation for miles that's right on the water. They have a slip for boaters, terrific breakfasts (Sunday only), clean and beautifully decorated suites and more. It won't hurt to ask Kate for a boat ride.

Had a great weekend staying at the Black Duck, which is wonderfully sited across from the harbor, yet quiet. I stayed in Brice room, with its own screened porch, and ate my breakfast sitting outside watching the world not go by! Kate is really great -- helpful and friendly but understands guest need for quiet as well! A great retreat... More

“We especially like Brice with the private bath and screened porch, but all rooms are very nice. The front porch is a great place to sit with a drink in hand and some snacks as you watch the water, the birds, and the rabbits!!!”

“You check in if Kate is nearby, or, find your room and go have fun doing your thing. There are 2 waterfront restaurants with decent food & music on Saturday nights so if dancing is your thing... The Black Duck Inn is a very special place where all the guests seem quite happy :) . We were !”
