Chesapeake Bay Hotel

Wylder Hotel Tilghman Island sits on 9-acres of lush grounds and private waterfront property. Home to Tickler’s Crab Shack, Bar Mumbo, and a private marina with 25 boat slips, we’ve got a salt water pool, bocce court, and lawn games aplenty to maximize your R&R time. Our bayside retreat is located on a 3-mile island on the Chesapeake bay with a population of only approximately 800 residents. This small watermen’s town just may be the perfect retreat. Chef Jordan is available to prepare fresh dishes that can be delivered directly to your room if desired and as always, our bikes are available for fresh salty air and exercise. After all, there’s an old fisherman’s tale that says “saltwater cures everything.”

About Wylder Hotel

Where a bayside cool retreat awaits: a rebirth of an 1898 original boarding house where watermen ran the docks and crabs were piled high on picnic tables. The Wylder Hotel Tilghman Island, located on a 3-mile island on the Chesapeake Bay, is a remake of an iconic property. It is an all-season escape that honors hardworking fisherman of yesteryear in an irreverent manner. This waterfront hotel makes you feel right at home with its welcoming vibe and great offerings: Tickler’s Crab Shack & Restaurant, Bar Mumbo, a private marina with 25 boat slips, charter fishing trips, and plenty of fun-filled activities. Wylder Hotel Tilghman Island is an awesome location for overnight guests, locals, as well as private gatherings and celebrations.

The Island

A short drive from Baltimore, Washington D.C. and Philadelphia, Tilghman Island is a relaxed, yet exciting Eastern Shore escape. Drive through St. Michael’s, past the farmland, corn stalks and pumpkin patches, and over the drawbridge across Knapp’s Narrow, and you’ll be on our 3-mile stretch of salty paradise. From charter fishing, to sailing and kayaking, Tilghman Island life is built around the Chesapeake Bay and its bounty of pleasures. Crack your blue crab in the glow of our super-sized sunset, wash it down with a cold one and give yourself a high five from us here at…
