Swanendele Inn Rooms
Swanendele Inn was constructed in traditional Southern Maryland style, with wraparound porches and waterfront views from every window. Constructed in traditional Southern Maryland style, the Inn features wraparound porches, decks and waterfront views from every room. Notwithstanding the “times gone by” charm of the Inn, it features the latest in water and energy-saving features, such as geo-thermal heating and AC, triple-pane windows and energy-star appliances.
The suites and every room afford natural stone, thermostat-controlled fireplaces, ceiling fans, white oak floors and marble/granite baths. The Suites offer Jacuzzi tubs for two with a divine view of the water and sunset – each with built-in Champagne coolers.
Each Room is named and themed after an important local landmark or historically important character.

The Inn is tastefully furnished with the owner’s eclectic collection of artwork and antiques gathered over decades and from all over the world.
The Osprey Nest Room
Swanendele typically has three or four inhabited and active osprey nests about 100 feet offshore. The dormers of this room offer a wonderful bird-watching platform, hence the name, “The Osprey Nest.” This charming room is exceptionally private and quiet. It has a queen-size bed, natural stone (gas) fireplace, skylights, built-in bookshelves and dresser, and marble/granite bath. The symphony of birdcalls and crickets through the open windows and the two skylights make this a bright and happy place.
When the current owners bought the Swanendele property in 2002, it had very few birds, as it had been a tobacco farm for centuries then planted over with white pine.
Long before construction of Swanendele began, the owners re-introduced traditional tree species, including oak, cedar, service berries and maple, as well as shrubs and flowers. As result of the diversified plant life, the bird population vastly expanded. Bluebirds, cardinals, blue jays, woodpeckers, chickadees, hummingbirds, herons, orioles, ducks, Canada geese, coots, seagulls, as well as bald-headed eagles and osprey now thrive in the forest and shores. The total Room is 448 square feet.
