We Love Our Environment
We limit the inn’s environmental impact as much as possible.
- We compost our food scraps.
- We recycle paper, plastic, glass, and aluminum.
- Our well water is regularly tested by the Anne Arundel County Health Department, and we use a water softener and filtration system to reduce the water’s iron content so our chlorine-free shower water feels amazing.
- We offer our own reverse osmosis filtered well water in glass pitchers and sanitized Acqua glass bottles instead of plastic bottles.
- We purchase our eggs, bacon, sausage, and ham from a local farmer.
- Organic fertilizer is used sparingly around the property.
- Our British-made Dimplex eco-friendly fireplaces, invented in response to the “Great Smog of London” event of 1952, are unique, realistic, non-emission fireplaces that offer all of the enjoyment and convenience of a gas fireplace.
- We’ll give you the option to have your towels changed daily or to reuse them a second day to help conserve resources.
