The Albanus Phillips Inn


The Albanus Phillips Inn is located in Cambridge, Maryland in Dorchester County, known as "The Heart of the Chessapeake." The area is known for it's beauty and untouched natural marshlands in the southern portion of the county. Spearheaded by the Blackwater Wildlife Refuge located 25 miles south of Cambridge, the protected lands are home to over 250 species of birds, 35 species of reptiles and amphibians, tens of thousands of geese and ducks during the peak migration periods, and many resident mammals including whitetail deer, sika deer (an Asian elk), foxes, otters, and raccoons. In addition, Blackwater Refuge is frequented by three recovering species: the endangered Delmarva fox squirrel, the American bald eagle, and the migrant peregrine falcon.

For visitors interested in history, Cambridge houses multiple museums including the Harriet Tubman Museum, honoring the life and efforts of the African-American abolitionist, humanitarian, and Union spy during the American Civil War. The local way of life for the waterman of the Chesapeake Bay are preserved by the James B. Richardson Museum and the boats themselves are restored to working condition at the Ruark Boatworks.
