Hotels on Chesapeake Bay


Peggy’s original partner was Bill Westbrook who was the visionary and founder of the Hope and Glory Inn, an Irvington inn, in 1996. Bill tapped Peggy to be his partner in 2001. Prior to that, Peggy spent 16 years at The Tides Inn serving as Director of Guest Services and a member of its Executive Committee.

Prior to buying out Bill Westbrook in 2005, Dudley was a banker and investment banker having managed corporate finance groups at banks and securities firms in Pittsburgh, PA and Washington, D.C. More recently, he held senior positions with two community banks and continued his capital markets efforts within his own company.
