Wonderful B&B! Delicious breakfast, Bob and staff very friendly and accommodating. The room was very comfortable with awesome view of the water. Very convenient location near shops, restaurants and bars. Plenty to do in the area; fun historic boat ride, short drive to see lighthouses or other quaint towns. We will definitely come back!

What a perfect getaway. You feel like you are miles from anywhere, but yet have all that you need. Quiet inn with so much character. Would recommend that it is the place to stay.

This was our first bed and breakfast experience and it was wonderful. The inn was quaint and beautiful. We stayed in one of the smaller rooms and it was clean, cozy and more than comfortable. The innkeeper was friendly and as the chef made a delicious breakfast. Baked goods coffee, tea and cool drinks were available gratis in the dining room for snack time. Just a terrific time in a great place.

We stayed at the inn at the canal last weekend and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. There were 6 of us and we loved sitting on the back porch and relaxing while looking out at the canal and boats. The suite was very comfortable and Samantha whom serves breakfast and cleans is very attentive and friendly. The breakfasts were delicious. Thanks Bob and Carol for a nice weekend

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the inn. I was only there for one night for business in the area and wished it had been longer. The hospitality was the best and the breakfast in the morning was outstanding. There is nothing better than waking up to a yummy smell of breakfast. The inn and the surrounding area is a step back in time. It was quiet and peaceful. Fortunately It was recommended by a friend and I am glad she did. Highly recommend staying there.

My husband and I were absolutely delighted with this Inn. The antique painted and stenciled ceilings were magnificent, and the breakfast was fabulous and a work of art, without pretension. I enjoyed talking with Bob the Innkeeper and chef extraordinaire. He went out of his way to give us the history of the inn and to make our stay comfortable. Because the Inn was not fully booked when we stayed, Bob upgraded our room for free, which was a welcome surprise after a 90-mile bike ride that day.

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.
