Had a wonderful time at the Blue Max Inn and thoroughly enjoyed Chesapeake City! This was a repeat visit, and once again the visit was perfect. Many thanks, hope to see you again soon!!

I booked all the rooms in this B&B except for 1 for my wedding in October. The rooms and lobby area were well appointed and clean. The only exception was that there was dust on the high areas, fans and door sills. Food was fine and when we lost a roomkey the innkeeper came quickly and let us in. With that said, I kind of felt like an inconvenience to the innkeeper. She didn't introduce herself to me or my guests and there was no real attempt at conversation. I struggle with this review because I didn't need conversation. However, I had explained the billing prior to my arrival and when I got there we had to go over it again. She asked me and my guests multiple times to pay. We had also requested late checkout as we were getting ready for the wedding in the B&B. She started hounding my friends to exit the room close to noon. If you are looking for a serviceable, nice B&B this one will do. If you are looking for a great experience and friendly interactions, I would recommend another B&B in Chesapeake City.

The Blue Max Inn is a perfect getaway, whether it be for an overnight stay or for a couple of days. The Blue Max has such charm and comfort. Every time we go there it's almost like coming home, that's how comfortable it feels.

The room was adequate although under the bed needed to be cleaned. The service and food were very good.

Beautiful old Inn/B&B in historic Chesapeake City. The Inn is lovely and the fall decorations were perfect. Christine and Wayne were professional yet personable. Our Room (the Lindsay) was very spacious and the bed was extremely comfortable. Our private bathroom was clean and spacious as well. The food was top notch: everything from warm muffins, fresh fruit and a hot entree in the morning. After spending the day out and about the town we returned to the Inn and found hot tea and tasty treats in the afternoon. The dining area/sun room was a perfect spot for our morning breakfast. The Inn is 1 to 1-1/2 blocks from the water and several restaurants not to mention a number of antique and specialty shops that are located on the same street. Can't wait to visit again. E.

My husband and I stayed in The Randall Room, which was very pretty. Comfortable and cozy. Great access to outside veranda. Breakfasts were delicious. Our only complaint - whoever cleaned the room prior to our stay forgot a few things. Our bathroom had a bag of garbage from previous guests in the basin of the sink. On the veranda was a ashtray loaded with cigarette butts from previous guest. No big deal, we just emptied the stuff in the trash, but definitely a lack of attention to detail by the cleaning staff. That being said, we would stay there again, and hopefully that wouldn't happen again.
5 on August 28, 2013
We met 5 or 6 other couples who were enjoying their stay as much as we were. We all became friends in just a few days enjoying the warmth, beauty and ambience of Christine's gorgeous B&B! Can't wait until we all return same time next year!

We have been celebrating our wedding anniversary at The Blue Max for the past 8 years and this place never fails to provide an outstanding experience! We relax and enjoy the rivers near by on kayak and enjoy the great restaurants within walking distance. Comparing the Blue Max to other B & B's ....this one is the best!
4.6 on July 03, 2013
Room was nice and the bed was very comfortable. Some rooms have bathroom inside the room, others have it down the hall, but every bathroom is still your own private bathroom. TVs are outdated but wasn't there to watch TV so that didn't bother me at all. Overall, I really enjoyed my stay there.
4.4 on June 25, 2013
We had never stayed at a Bed and Breakfast before and were a little apprehensive but we soon relaxed and had a wonderful time. The bed was so comfortable and everything was very tidy and clean. Breakfast was great and very elegant. We enjoyed ourselves very much and got some much needed relaxation time.

Quiet, clean, and friendly!

My boyfriend and I stayed for two nights at The Blue Max Inn while we were attending my brothers wedding. The service was completely outstanding. Breakfast was delicious. The woman who runs the b&b was extremely helpful. Perfect town to get away for a little bit and have a great weekend. Almost everything is in walking distance. We absolutely loved the decor of the whole house. It was a beautiful historical building and we felt very comfortable and welcome during our stay. Would recommend this b&b to anyone!
4.2 on June 05, 2013
Lovely room on 2nd floor with a comfortable bed and nice size bathroom. The porch was semi private, which was very nice. It was quiet, and we slept well. Breakfast was served beautifully on lovely china, and the entree was very good. We had a lovely stay at Blue Max!

This is a lovely home, comfortable and nicely decorated. The breakfasts are bountiful: fruit, muffin AND a main course. The inn keepers are friendly--and though daily service was pretty haphazard, when we hit a snag they volunteered to go WAY out of their way to help; that means the world. To be clear, I expect a room to be clean, so it is tough to rate it "exceeded my expectations."
4.4 on May 26, 2013
Our first time at the Blue Max in Chesapeake City Maryland while we attended events at St. Andrew's School nearby and we enjoyed it very much. A delightful town and the suite we had was quite good. Service was impeccable as well given our early and late comings and goings. I have no doubt that we will be back. regards, MS

Christine is a delight. This was our 4th year back, 2nd time at Blue Max Inn. Now, we won't stay anywhere else when in the area.

Very homey atmosphere. Owner Christine engaged us at breakfast describing the area and things to do. Very clean with all needed amenities. We never stayed at a B & B before but would highly recommend the Blue Max

Beautiful furnishings and very pleasant hosts. Lovely small town, wonderful dining, charming and informational canal museum. We delighted in sitting on a park bench and watching ships on the canal. When we tired, The Blue Max living room and porch was great places to sit and read.
5 on April 24, 2013
This past weekend was our first time there and everyone was just so nice. We stayed in the Herman room and it was completely immaculate. We really enjoyed our stay and the serene calmness and comfort we felt there in Chesapeake City. Soon in the near future we will be returning. The Blue Max Inn is definitely a true weekend getaway.
3.8 on April 21, 2013
This is a beautiful B&B with well kept rooms. It was wonderfully quiet when we were there, although it was just before the summer season. It is located right at the beginning of the main street of Chesapeake City. So very convenient if you want to see the town. Parking seemed abundant. The hosts were ever-present when needed. Value for the cost was better than expected and lower than what we were quoted online.
4.2 on January 15, 2013
We stayed as a large group of friends for New Yeas Eve 2012 so we occupied most of the rooms in the house. The men played cards in the dining room while the women caught-up in the living room. The baby grand digital player piano was a nice touch and well received as we let it play nearly all evening. The Blue Max Inn staff was there to attend to our every need. Breakfast was very good and we all left very satisfied and impressed. We will certainly be back in the near future.
4.8 on January 05, 2013
Just spent one overnight with my fiancee at the Blue Max. This is the third time we stop there, and it was no less impressive than it had been before. From the tastefully appointed furnishings and linens to the extremely courteous problem solver caretaker Michael (son of the owner) everything conspired to take us to an experience worthy of a fin de secle romance. We will definitely return, it certainly is worth it.
4.4 on January 04, 2013
The service was prompt and efficient. First time staying at a B&B and I loved it!
4.4 on January 04, 2013
I didn't get much time here or in the town because I was staying there in order to attend a wedding. But I was pleasantly surprised by how affordable my room was, and how cute the street that the Blue Max Inn is on. If I ever have an opportunity to go back, I would definitely build in more time for exploring.
4.8 on January 03, 2013
Friendly staff. Convenient to location; walking distance to shops and restuarants. I will definitely return for a future stay.
4.4 on October 10, 2012
Friendly atmosphere. Staff was very helpful. Room was very clean exactly what we expected it to be. All around great experience and definitely stay there again.
4.6 on October 01, 2012
Excellent breakfasts and personable service. Nice, quiet, relaxing stay.
4.8 on September 08, 2012
The town of Chesapeake City was quaint and friendly. The Blue Max Inn was everything I had hoped it would be... clean, beautiful, charming. The hosts were friendly and helpful.. The porches were my favorite. We enjoyed rocking, talking, and reading. Relaxation and peace were what we were looking for and they're exactly what we got.
4.2 on August 15, 2012
Very nice overall. Friendly staff. A little overdecorated and frilly for our tastes, but that's a personal taste thing. Room AC works well, but it's hot and stuffy in breakfast area, as they tend to leave lobby AC off on all but the hottest days. Needs a better online reservation system, as the current system is flaky. Great locaton in a historic house. Clean as a whistle. Walking distance to the C&D Canal waterside.
4.8 on August 08, 2012
Several friends get together every year on the first weekend of August and take boats from Philadelphia down to Chesapeake City MD and we always stay at teh Blue Max Inn. We have tried other places here in town but have found that the Blue Max Inn has the best value and best service in town. Rooms are beautifully decorated, the breakfast and service is always great, and the Inn is located close to the other attractions in town. We can't wait to go back again next year!
3.6 on July 24, 2012
I have stayed at the Blue Max Inn many times and always enjoy my stay. My room this time was great but the bathroom floor was not as clean as I would like it as I saw some stains near the toilet and blood stain on one of the towels and bath rugs. The airconditioner unit needs to be replaced as it was extreamly loud when turning on and off.
4.4 on July 13, 2012
A little expensive but the room was comfortable and the food was good.
5 on May 16, 2012
thank your so much for everything!!! Best B&B we have stayed in the C&D Canal Area!!
4.2 on May 03, 2012
My wife and I hoped for a quiet weekend away from the kids. We were worried when the room was on the first floor right off of the dining room, but there was really no noise to worry about. We heard footsteps from the stairs but nothing so loud that it would wake us up. Breakfasts were great but I thought the ham and cheese croissant should have had egg on it. We had a great time walking around all the little shops in town and got the much needed quiet weekend we had hoped for!
3.6 on May 02, 2012
We have gone to Blue Max for over 14 years. Great location. Great B&B. Great service. The food is getting predictable for breakfast. They make the same thing over and over so we had the same breakfast two years ago. New recipes would be great. They have a toasted muffin - GREAT but all other food is in need of change.
4.0 on March 06, 2012
The room was ok; VHF movies from the past, this room need to be updated, small TV and no radio for music. The breakfast was ok, but not as good as the IHOP. The service was ok; the lady that waited on us did not smiled very much.
4.2 on February 22, 2012
We had a lovely stay for our girls weekend. Food was delicious and the rooms were nice and clean.

What a wonderful stay...the Blue Max Inn! Hubby and I went (courtesy of our ds and dil) last weekend. The Inn was beautifully decorated for Christmas, a pleasant surprise. We were greeted warmly by the Inkeepers and shown our room (Lindsey). It was everything I had hoped it would be. Chesapeake City is a quaint, quiet town this time of year...walkable to the canal and places for dinner and entertainment. Breakfast at the Inn was delicious...I only wish we could have stayed longer! We will definitely recommend this Inn to our friends and family. Would love to come back during the summer!
5 on November 06, 2011
Absolutely loved it!! First time ever staying at a B&B and the Blue Max Inn was a great choice. The house is lovely and the owner could not have been more friendly. The rooms are charming, clean, and cozy. The breakfast (which is served on a beautiful sun porch overlooking a koi pond) was delicious and filling. You really feel as if you are the only guest and that your getting preferential treatment. I feel I made a great first choice and my only regret...we didn't stay longer!!

We didn't have breakfast but did enjoy our stay overnight. Room was clean and elegantly decorated and furnished giving it an old world charm i've never experienced. A little pricey but then this was our first stay in a BB but was satisfied just the same.

Always enjoy our stay at BMI. We have stayed there several times over the years and have never been disapointed.
4.6 on September 11, 2011
We really enjoyed our stay. The house is so beautiful and charming. We definitely will go back again!
4.6 on August 31, 2011
We stayed in the Christine Suite which was absolutely fabulous. The bed was very comfortable. I would definitely go back to the Blue Max Inn!
5 on August 17, 2011
Everything about my stay was absolutely fabulous. The room was exceptional, very clean and nicely decorated. My favorite part was having the most spectacular breakfast -compliments to your chef!!! I would definitely come back and stay at your lovely B&B if I am ever in the area.
5 on August 09, 2011
A wonderful stay during the late July 2011 heat wave. The B&B is as expected in Chesapeake City-close to everything (great shopping and fabulous food)! An incredible breakfast as well. We'll definitely be back!! MH&KH
2.6 on August 08, 2011
Had to ask for the room to be dusted upon arrival. One window shade was lying on the ground which I had to reinstall. The breakfast was good but not unique in any way. The place has an excellent decor and we will return.
5 on July 15, 2011
Our stay was wonderful and the food was delicious. Will definitely try to go back and visit again. Thanks to everyone for making us feel at home.
4.6 on July 13, 2011
This was our first stay in a B&B and we felt almost like royalty. There was such attention to our needs but our privacy was never invaded. Great time in a great area.
3.4 on June 29, 2011
As a first time B & B'r i had a wonderful stay, very clean, very friendly and an overall excellent time.
4.4 on June 14, 2011
I whisked my wife away for a surprise 38th anniversary getaway to the Blue Max. This was our first time staying there, but it will definitely NOT be our last! From the moment we stepped inside, we knew we had found a gem! The charm of the inn and the warm, professional and attentive response from the staff was exceptional. The breakfasts were delightful and the room was cozy.
3.6 on May 31, 2011
A surprise for my wife was a night's stay at the inn. we had a wonderful time, the inn was wonderful. The only real gripe was the ceiling decoration in our room was in disrepair.
3.2 on May 02, 2011
My family has traveled over the high bridge on MD 213 that separates North and South Chesapeake City several times, and we always remarked how pretty the area looked, so we decided to stay at the Blue Max. The public areas are very attractive, and our room was comfortable, although it could have used a second reading chair. I think the walls could have used a little work. The bathroom was large and well equipped. We barely saw the Innkeeper during the entire weekend, and there are times when being a little more 'hands on' is appreciated. For example, there was no water in the common frig, and we had to call to request, as the Innkeeper was NOT on site. The breakfast was good, but not spectacular. As my wife and I enjoyed our weekend, we would consider returning to the Blue Max.
4.4 on April 29, 2011
A very pleasant place to stay. Relaxing and not a care in the world.
4.6 on April 24, 2011
We stayed one evening. The room was beautiful (Honeymoon suite), the town and restaurants are wonderful and the breakfast was outstanding. Thanks for a great time.

Our recent stay at the Blue Max Inn was really nice and we would stay there again. The room was spacious, nicely decorated, and had a comfortable bed. The service was outstanding.

Very comfortable room. Innkeepers are very hospitable and accomodating. We had a very pleasant stay!
3.2 on November 11, 2010
I thought the place was lovely. The rooms were clean and very cozy. I would go back. The only thing that disappointed me was upon arriving there was not one there so we had to fill out forms to order breakfast. On the sheet you could either get a continental or full breakfast. I signed us up for full breakfast. We only recieved a fruit cup and half of a muffin. I could have said something but we were satisfied, so we didn't complain. I can only assume someone read our form wrong.
5 on November 10, 2010
Good follow up,clean rooms decorated nicely, breakfast served was good and beyond expectations. Location was in heart of town so we could walk to dinner each night. Very relaxing atmosphere and we intend to return in the future.
4.6 on October 21, 2010
We truly enjoyed our stay at this B&B in Chesapeake City. Conveniently located in a great little getaway town. The hostess Christine and her staff were super, very friendly and accommadating. We are not "on time" people, and this can get us into some uncomfortable situations, but these folks really made us feel at home. I highly recommend staying here and enjoying the hospitality and the town.
3.8 on August 29, 2010
A very nicely appointed B&B on an exceptionally picturesque street in Chesapeake City, Virginia. The Hunter Room on the second floor with balcony access to the street was a delight to stay in. All in all, a good bet and we would stay there again.
5 on August 29, 2010
We had a great visit to Chesapeake City, Md. and loved the Blue Max Inn. Would highly reccomend for a nice getaway.
5 on August 25, 2010
Our stay was beyond our expectations. The room was lovely. Breakfast was delicious and Christine's appearances and friendliness were great. The Inn is superior in decorating ideas and beautiful greenery all around. We would definitely place it in the No. 1 category for cleanliness, friendliness and best appearance we have found in many of our bed and breakfast stays.
4.8 on July 21, 2010
My husband and I have been here before but it had been 5 years ago, Blue Max is beautifully maintained, lots of attention to detail. The breakfasts were wonderful, lots and lots of delicious food: fresh fruit, juice, coffee, toasted muffins, main entrees. We were stuffed and certainly did not have to eat anything till dinner. We stayed in the Hunter room, private bath, king size bed, and a great balcony front porch to relax on. We would highly recommend.
4.6 on July 30, 2009
Christine and her staff did it again! Another great weekend at the Blue Max. My husband and I are officially making this our annual anniversary spot. The inn was very clean and comfortable and Chesapeake City has so much to do and see. Set foot in the Blue Max you leave your worries at the door. Christine and her staff made us feel like guests in her home - well done ladies!

My wife and I stayed at the Blue Max Inn for Murder Mystery weekend. What a great time we had! We have already signed up for this winter with four of our friends. We highly recommend it!
5 on July 30, 2009
My husband and I stayed for three days in June & we enjoyed every aspect of the Inn. The details are elegant, breakfast was great and we enjoyed relaxing on the porch. I have recommended the Blue Max Inn to all of my family & friends. Can't wait to return!

My sister and I were guests at the Blue Max last week.The decor and grounds were fabulous. We enjoyed our talks outside in the Gazebo and the short strolls to the restaurants.Great place! We'll be back.

4.6 on September 05, 2008
This was our second stay at Blue Max. It is a beautifully decorated, quaint Inn located in Chesapeake City. Christine and her staff make you feel like family. Whether we were sitting on the porch relaxing, walking through the shops in Chesapeake City or listening to the band at the Chesapeake Inn...it was the perfect end of the summer getaway...and you can walk to everything. Can't wait to go back! Elaine and Gary

My husband and I just spent our 10th wedding anniversary weekend in the romantic honeymoon suite at the Blue Max Inn and it exceeded all of our expectations. Innkeeper Christine warmly greeted us and showed us to our cozy and private room. We spent the day touring and shopping in Chesapeake City and then returned to the Blue Max for a quiet evening - the jacuzzi was a nice plus! In the morning we were pleasantly surprised with the delicious baked ham and cheese croissants - yum! And hot coffee - perfect! All-in-all a wonderful weekend - hopefully we'll return to the Blue Max before our 20th.
5 on June 11, 2008
Our stay at the Blue Max was delightful. All the rooms were well appointed, very clean and comfortable with nice views of the town's main street from the balcony. Public areas were impressively decorated in period furniture and the B&B was a very comfortable place to stay. Chesapeake City was also delightful and quaint. Christine made us very welcome and we would not hesitate to return.
