Susannah’s Watch is a historic waterfront estate, located on the Dixon Family Farm in beautiful St. Mary’s County, Southern Maryland

The Dixon Family Farm is 60 acres of pastures and vineyard located on the banks of the Patuxent River, and has been in the family for many generations. Susannah’s Watch is an updated colonial estate converted into a beautiful Bed & Breakfast with gorgeous views of the Patuxent River. The original structure of the home dates back to the late 1600’s, and has had several major renovations over the years. Come and stay with us for a weekend and experience the charm of St. Mary’s County. Only 90 minutes from DC, Susannah’s Watch is the ideal weekend get-away, or a spectacular venue for special events with waterfront views of the Patuxent River.

Our four guest rooms are professionally designed, beautifully appointed, and each room has a story of it’s own. All guest rooms have a fireplace, luxurious linens, and high-end Stearns and Foster mattresses to ensure a restful sleep. Wake up to the aroma of freshly brewed coffee and home-made baked goodies waiting for you outside you door. You can relax in your room before a hot breakfast is served downstairs and plan your day.
