My wife and I were looking for something different to just get away for night on our 20th Anniversary. We just got in the car and took off. We arrived late in the afternoon with no reservations. Bob was very understanding and got us settled in the 3rd floor suite within minutes. We had never stayed in a Bed and Breakfast before and can't wait to stay again. Bob was an amazing host. He expressed genuine interest in hearing about our children and 20 years of marriage. The room was very clean and decorated very nicely. The breakfast was top notch. Our expectations were exceeded and will defiantly be heading back soon for a get away. Well done Inn at the Canal, well done.....

The owner was extremely friendly, and promptly greeted us upon arrival. There were snacks and beverages immediately available to us. The room where we stayed, Snug Harbor, was tastefully decorated, but incredibly small. There was limited space to store clothes, so we left them in our suitcase. There were broken tiles in the bathroom, along with a broken window pane. The ventilation fan did not work, and even though we cracked the window open, we were left with a lot of humidity. It was difficult to close and open the bathroom door which seemed to be the result of the flooring being too high at a certain spot. Breakfast was good. I especially liked the homemade berry muffin.

The proprietor made us feel very welcome from the minute we arrived. The breakfasts were wonderful. We enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere at the inn and in Chesapeake City. We would definitely recommend it.
