Roberts Inn, is a historic home and farm located at Cooksville, Howard County, Maryland. The complex consists of a 2 12-story stuccoed stone house with a reconstructed log wing built about 1808, and several 19th- to early-20th-century agricultural outbuildings, including a frame bank barn, a frame ground barn, a tile dairy, and a frame silo. The construction of the house coincided with the extension of the National Pike through the Cooksville area. Documentary and architectural evidence supports its use as a turnpike tavern from an early date. Tradition holds that Marquis de Lafayette breakfasted at Roberts Inn during his 1824 tour of America.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2006.[1] It is located off of Route 144 next to the Dunkin Donuts off the intersection of Route 144 and Route 97.
