The space

3 day minimum for the Eagleman Event from June 12-14, 2015
this private manor turned Bed & Breakfast was originally built and owned by the world renowned businessman Colonel Albanus Phillips Jr. of the famous Phillips Packing Company. Completed in 1903 and added on to for the next several years, this ten bedroom house was built as a Queen Anne Victorian integrating Italian Renaissance and Edwardian features and is lavishly adorned with colonnades and massive wood accents. Italian marble enhances the beauty of the interior and exterior, including three types of marble on the front porch alone. Marble slabs, 8” thick and 18” deep, were used on the windows, both on the sills and the lintels, even on the lower level windows. The exterior brick of the house was imported from Venice, Italy.

The home has been visited by many famous guests including the President Teddy Roosevelt in 1908 and his nephew, President Franklin D. Roosevelt on his trip to Cambridge in 1935 to dedicate the new bridge between Dorchester and Talbot County. Today, the home serves as a Bed & Breakfast in this historic West End of Cambridge in the "Heart of the Chesapeake," Dorchester County.

Christopher User Profile

Gracious host with great knowledge of local history and the best food. He was witty, warm, and incredibly thoughtful. For breakfast he crafted "carbo loading" as all staying were doing a half ironman race, and he even got up at 4am on our Sunday raceday to make sure that we had the breakfast food that we needed. Extraordinary thoughtfulness. I will absolutely comeback to this place if I race again. I recommend this with no hesitation. It is an architectural masterpiece and with luck, you will get the room where teddy roosevelt slept!!! 5 out of 5 stars in my book!
