Pauli, We had a wonderful stay at your charming B&B.
We especially enjoyed eating steamed crabs with your other

Captain & Tenille, Enjoy
every time we stay with you. Hopefully can pull of a
great sign for your B&B. I come here for the watery

be heard. We'll be back

Can't wait to return, loved our visit, will tell everyone I
work with what a great time I had. Good luck on the
mural and with school and work. Take care,

Mike & Pauli, Thanks for a wonderful stay! A perfect
place for our mother & daughter reunion... All the

kayaking and breakfast conversations were just a few of the

at the "Sunrise" delivered.
Hope to visit again,

—Theresa, Randy and Randy Jr.
Pauli, What an experience! Thanks so much for having
us. We got about 10 feet from a heron in a kayak and
had one of the little islands out there all to ourselves for
an afternoon. Truly incredible.
This place is beautiful.
We sat on the dock and stargazed last night. Wow!
Also, I couldn't be better fed—crab cakes at Ruke's for
dinner last night, and an amazing breakfast this morning.
Thanks for everything!
—David (and Jenny)
Pauli, We had a great time on 4 July. Sorry we have to

Dear Pauli, Thank you is hardly
enough to say, it has been an honor to
at the Chesapeake Sunrise B&B and to share July 4th with you
and your family. May the road rise to meet you, may
the winds be always on your back, and until we meet again.
May God hold you in the palm of his hand! God bless.
Gentiles! :), Sharon, David, Michael and Lane
Pauli & Mike, Thank you so much

Dear Pauli and Steve, Thank you
so much for all your hospitality. We've wanted to see
Smith Island for a long time and we have been so happy to
finally make it here. It's a beautiful spot.
Smith and Jim Conée, June 28, 2007
Dear Pauli and Steve, You
express this truth: Love heals, Love joins, Love is not
invisible. Be blessed in your ministry of hospitality
It is a healing for tired souls. We will return.
and Norma Boudreau, Laconing, MD, June 28, 2007
Pauli, What a wonderful hostess
you are. Your home is so comfortable and inviting and
warm. You make us feel right at home. It was a
lot more than I expected for my first stay at a B&B.
You are just the opposite of what I expected, and what a
beautiful warm smile you have. You have a wealth of
knowledge about the Island and its residents. Fact or
fiction, some of the stories are fascinating. You
should write a book for your patrons. Best wishes and
thank you for everything.
and Shirley Marshall, Cambridge, MD
Dear Pauli, This certainly was a
nice getaway for all of us. You have been so warm and
welcoming. You have a beautiful B&B. The
furnishings and decor are very interesting and unique.
It's fun to look around at everything. Being on Smith
Island is very relaxing. Away from the hustle and
bustle of life is very nice. I knew you were going to
be a wonderful hostess just by talking to you over the phone
and arranging this vacation! Thanks so much for all
you have done for us, especially talking with my Mom (Jean).
She has thoroughly enjoyed herself. Now we can tell
everyone that Smith Island is a nice place to vacation.
—Barbara Marshall, Cambridge, MD, June 26, 2007
Pauli, This is a lovely place to
have a B&B and I am having so much fin with Bart and family.
It was fun feeding the mallards last night and touring the
island in a golf cart. We counted 7 cats. I love
this place and the hostess in my opinion is tops. She
makes you feel at home instantly and that is a skill not
everyone has. I'm going to tell everyone about this
place when I get home.
Many thanks, Pauli,
Eyler, June 26, 2007
Pauli, Our stay at your B&B has
been most interesting and relaxing. We hope to visit
again in the future to make more memories--not sure when
that will be. Thanks for being a wonderful hostess!
Tony & Nancy, Glen Burnie, MD, June 21, 2007
Dear Pauli, Thank you very much
for your hospitality. It was wonderful to celebrate my

was such a relaxing weekend and Scott and I truly enjoyed
it. Thank you for being such a precious hostess.

—Will & Lynn Williams, [MD] June 3, 2007
We had a wonderful time here on Smith Island. Your
hospitality was great. This was our first B&B and it was
well worth it. We felt very comfortable and welcome, as if
we were in my own home. Thank you for a wonderful time.
—Rick and Rachelle Chvala, Highland, MD, June
Mike, we enjoyed informative
and engaging conversation. Arranging the bird watching
trip throughout the island was a treasure for us.
Thank you for sharing your interest and expertise in
with us. You made it possible for us to enlarge our
experience with Eastern Shore culture. We look forward to
seeing the differences between ibis and cranes when we visit
the shore again.
—Gayle and David Sheppard, near Wilmington, DE, June 1,
Thanks Mike for a great time! The trip to the wildlife
preserve with Waverly was a wonderful experience—we've never
been in a place so rich with so many bird species! The
pelican colony was fantastic! We loved hiking and
biking across the marsh to Rhodes Point, and we also loved
the crab cakes!
—Nora and Cliff Johnson, Pittsburgh, PA, June 1, 2007
Thank you for everything! We arrived at Smith Island
by chance, as the Southwest wind made it a perfect reach
from Deltaville, VA. The boathouse shower and lounge
was a welcome sight for 2 sailors making our way around the
Delmarva Peninsula. We are headed back to Annapolis
but will be back here soon!
—Cesile Kiker, Mark Koberja, CAL 34 "ONO", June
a gem—the Smith Island Experience—Heat, beautiful sunshine,
wildlife, seclusion—a beautiful tour with Captain Waverly,
bike rides, world's best crab cakes. The kids bring up
the bike ride (the 3-wheeler) and the tour all the time.
Our stop on Smith Island was definitely one of our
highlights, a memorable, special experience for us and our
kids. It was a major part of our two week summer trip.
Hope we can return one day. Mike was just awesome—
Thanks for all!
—Tony, Rebekah, Sydney, Ashton, Mt. Vernon, KY, May 29,

coming back in October!

experience! Thank you so much for your gracious
hospitality. it was truly relaxing
Dear Pauli, Thank you so
much. The weekend was beautiful. The victorian
bedroom allowed me to feel like a little girl again.
It was a quiet refuge from the work and family
responsibilities at home. My body simply relaxed as
did my mind & spirit. I felt the presence of God
strongly during this stay. You were such a gracious
hostess. I'll treasure you and this experience
—Rosemary Boileau, York, PA, April 17, 2007

Pauli, you were there if I needed you and yet allowed me
to do my own thing. Steve, the coffee was out of

changing the name to The Jewel of The Chesapeake because
it certainly is a jewel. Thank you for a wonderful

and Denese Bell, Delaware
Mr. Steve—— Your house and
marine facilities were excellent. The inn felt very
"homey" and the other guests were pleasant. This was
our first stay at a B&B. Marc compliments you on your
marina, being very happy that it is well—protected for his
boat, with nice docks. We wish we could have stayed
longer to see more of the sights. Hope we can come
back another time!
Benner, Reading, PA and Gretchen Houser, Lancaster, PA
Had a treat time, meeting lots
of nice and interesting people. Most relaxing, and
good to have no schedule and effectively having a house of
our own. It was good to ride the bikes through the
flooded streets! Hope to come again!
—Suzanne Grimwood and Jonathan Roper, Sheffield, England
Relaxing is the word.
Peaceful, quiet and more than comfortable. Couldn't
ask for a better corner of the world to take some
"downtime". Thanks, Steve, for creating this special
corner. Even enjoyed the flood tides that made us
realize the challenges of living on an island. We look
forward to seeing you again soon.
and Maureen Miller, Galesville, MD
First time ever for catching a

you again, but if not, please know that I am indebted.
—Sincerely, Jonathan Lopez
ps... Thanks also for fishing Kate out of the water
Steve, you're the "best".
You made our stay a time we will never forget! The
kayaks were an A+. We enjoyed the channel as we
paddled in and out. Thank you for telling us about
"Tim". We had a great time with him. Al got to
see the bald eagles. They were fascinating as a
peregrin flew right over the baot and we could have almost
touched it. Your inn is beautiful. We had so
much fun with the other guests at the marina and at the inn.
It felt like home. We were able to get away from the
daily stresses of life and enjoy the simple things that give
you so much bliss. We all chipped in and did the
puzzle again. It felt like a family night out!
Thanks again for the pictures. You will not be
forgotten and we will spread the inn's name around to family

Quietness... Welcoming people.
