From Baltimore & Washington, D.C.
You have the choice of taking I-95 South towards Norfolk, VA and then the Chesapeake Bay Bridge−Tunnel (follow directions from Mainland Virginia); or crossing over the Bay Bridge at Annapolis, Maryland to Route 50 East. At Salisbury, Maryland, you will pick up Route 13 South (follow directions from Delaware).
We HIGHLY recommend taking 50 East and 13 South down the Delmarva Peninsula. Depending on time of day and day of week, you can sit in hours of traffic on I-95 South. Most GPS systems will put you on I-95 South because it is technically 10 miles shorter, but you can save hours of traffic and frustration by taking Route 13 South.
We offer complimentary off−street parking in our lot on Tazewell Avenue. Parking is limited to one car per guest room. Trailers, boats, RVs, and over−sized/over−width vehicles must park along either side of Tazewell Avenue. There are no restrictions for street parking. Parking is not permitted on Fig Street.
Speed limits are heavily enforced along Route 13/Lankford Highway and Route 184/Stone Road, specifically in the 25 MPH zone. If traveling South along Route 13 you will come into a few spots where the limit will drop from 55 MPH to 35, 45 or 50 MPH. These zones are typically heavily enforced.
