An easy drive from the city to your relaxing & unforgettable weekend in the country.

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 farm fields 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 five guest rooms are professionally designed, beautifully appointed, and each room has a story of it’s own. All guest rooms have luxurious linens, and high-end mattresses, and the same pillows 5-star luxury hotels use to ensure a comfortable, and restful sleep. Wake up to the aroma of freshly brewed coffee and just out of the oven European style croissants waiting for you outside you door. You can relax and plan your day in your room before a hot breakfast is served downstairs. There are many options for things to do, wine tasting at our local wineries, tour the Tobacco Barn Distillery, spend the day on the water, or take a walk through history.
