A long winding lane invites you to Lauretum (1881), sitting splendidly atop a tree graced knoll on six acres in Chestertown, MD.  The complex form and massing of the house reflect the eclecticism of the late Victorian period.

In 1877 the original owner, Harrison W. Vickers, commissioned the internationally renowned architect, Edmund George Lind to design his country estate which he named "Lauretum Place". The name Lauretum or "Laurel Grove", is the name of a place on the Aventine Hill in Ancient Rome. Now operated as a Bed & Breakfast, it provides a unique setting for your visit to the Eastern Shore.

          
"Lauretum is a most extraordinary building, by far the best example of picturesque architecture on the Eastern Shore."
                                                 - Maryland Historic Trust

"We couldn't have imagined a more perfect getaway. The hospitality made us feel welcome, and the relaxed yet elegant atmosphere was a nice departure from the usual chain hotel stay. Just the right balance of pampering and privacy." 
                                                - A Washingtonian Couple
