Great Inn; Great Hosts

3.8 on January 28, 2015

We spent a quiet night at the Inn At The Canal to celebrate our 2nd anniversary. Bob greeted us at the door (and any other time we ran into one another) by name, and was very hospitable. Our room (the suite on the top floor) was lovely, and like having our own little apartment. Breakfast was delicious, and although we went with his suggestion Bob would've cooked us anything we wanted, I think. There was ample parking and we were right in the center of town/shops/restaurants. A great location and easy getaway for us!

Great Getaway!

If you want intimate & cozy stay in "Snug Harbor" room. The chef will make you the most delicious breakfast then go for a walk & visit every cute quaint store all within blocks. I will visit again very soon.

lovely little inn in a lovely little town

We had a lovely stay at this historic inn in Chesapeake City, MD. It was right around the holidays so people were starting to get out their Christmas decorations, and sales were going on in the boutiques on Bohemia Ave. The innkeeper is friendly and hospitable, and they make sure you have everything you need. I would definitely recommend staying here!

I was impressed by the standard of the property - outstanding! The service was excellent, location was great, and was very pleased how organized the owners were from our champagne order and the best chocolate bark (made by the owner/chef) to the breakfast - awesome! Will certainly go back! Thanks

Our stay was fabulous, our room was very private with a view of the canal. Breakfast each morning was a special treat. We loved the proximity of staying right in town.
