At Fleeton Fields:

Walking or Bicycling

The quiet roads and the quaint hamlet of Fleeton are perfect. There are bicycle tour loops that take you past lush farms, creeks and ponds, or over the Little Wicomico River on a two-car cable ferry where you can watch the local watermen tending their crabpots.

Kayaking or Canoeing

Launch the inn's canoe or kayak on the pond for quiet water paddling, or venture into the Chesapeake Bay and paddle to Reedville for lunch, for a longer day on the water.

Chesapeake Bay Kayaking
Relaxing

Sit at the water's edge or stroll through the gardens. Perhaps wine and cheese at the patio table under the old maple. Enjoy a movie on the widescreen or in your room.

. . . why not do it all?

In Reedville:

Sailing on the Chesapeake Bay

Just two and one half miles up the road lies Reedville, founded in 1867 it is a typical Chesapeake Bay region working fishing village. Stop in at the Reedville Fishermen's Museum and be sure to see the Walker House, the oldest house in town and a restored waterman's home, and their historic boat collection including a 1911 skipjack, a 1922 buyboat and the Spirit of 1608, a discovery barge built at the Museum to commemorate Captain John Smith's exploring and charting the Chesapeake Bay.

Take the walking tour of the national register historic district, going by the imposing Victorian mansions, you'll see why in 1912 this little town was touted as the "richest per capita small town in the country."

On the water:

Cruises leave Reedville daily in season, for Tangier and Smith Islands, which are out in the middle of the Bay. It's a pretty boat ride and you can explore these quaint little villages, and taste the area's best crabcakes and soft shell crabs.
