Welcome to the Black Duck InnWaterfront Lodging On Rock Hall Harbor

    The Black Duck Inn

    Overlooking picturesque Rock Hall Harbor, we offer five comfortable, central air-conditioned guest rooms, and complimentary dockage for overnight guests arriving by boat. We are located in a most desired location, within easy walking distance of town, marinas and restaurants. The Inn has much to offer those who seek the serenity and charm of a unique America lifestyle that most urban and suburban dwellers seldom experience.
    The Black Duck Inn provides bicycles, free WIFI, and a wonderful screened in porch with a view of the harbor as well as waterside picnic tables where many of our guests congregate in the late afternoon and evening.   We are centrally situated within a one minute walk to Waterman’s Crab House,  a short walk to the Harbor Shack Restaurant and just a few moments to most other Rock Hall restaurants and Main Street.
    Our breakfast consists of coffee, tea, fresh baked goodies, fresh fruits and juices.  Our Dockside Cafe is located on the premises, at the harbor’s edge.
    Many of our guests charter a half day fishing boat, a day trip by boat to St Michaels, Annapolis and Baltimore as well as  a sunset sailing cruise… all of which should be arranged in advance of your visit.   Kayaking, biking and walking and eating crabs and oysters are very popular with our guests as well as  the beach where incredible sunsets can be viewed. Partake of local events and festivities throughout the season. The Eastern Wildlife Refuge is a short bike or car ride away where small boats are available for rent so you can bring your gear and catch your own crabs or fish.   Don’t forget your binoculars.
    There are several local boat launch areas (permit required) for those who wish to trailer their boat and dock it at the inn while they are staying with us.
