We rolled into Chesapeake City on a Sunday evening when the street was full of visitors and a band was playing in the park. Needless to say there was no parking in front of the Inn. Luckily there are reserved spots for hotel guests adjacent to the house and park!! We felt like rock stars. The innkeepers were extremely hospitable and the room I booked, was the smallest - but the perfect size for two adults. The bathroom was almost as large as the room! (snug harbor). We enjoyed the waterfront dining at the Bayard, less than a block away. Drinks on the terrace at the Chesapeake Inn and taking a stroll around the historic neighborhood. What a great find!!! The historic house itself was nicely decorated and really took us back in time. The breakfast by Chef Bob was excellent and we enjoyed visiting with him and his wife and jack Russell Terrior during our short 1 night stay. Highly recommended!!!

We had a lovely stay at this historic B&B. Even on short notice, Bob & Carol were very accommodating, and the room was beautiful and clean. All of the antiques, the great breakfast, and the service made it very enjoyable.
