Wow - we just stayed at Ship Watch and it was a fabulous 2 day trip. My husband and I stayed in the Chesapeake Suite. It was very spacious - and what a view . We ate breakfast the first morning on our deck - it was divine and then the second morning we ate in the dining room as we had to leave right away. Parking is a little tight but we were able to find a spot on a street nearby and our vehicle was safe . Will be planning another trip in either the Spring or the Fall. Sounds like alot of fun happenings in the town so want to check them out in the future. Thank you to all at the Ship Watch Inn for making our 25 Year Anniversary getaway a wonderful one.

Our anniversary was in June and our kids gave us a stay here and dinner at Chesapeake Inn. What a relaxing time - loved the jacuzzi. The room was lovely and breakfast delicious. Nice 2 hour afternoon cruise with MV Bay Breeze with pickup at town dock - a very short walk from the inn.

Chesapeake City was a perfect getaway thanks to the accommodations and staff of the Ship Watch Inn. We plan to return!

We had such a wonderful weekend, we already booked for the same time next year. The rooms are spacious and clean. Breakfast was served on the porch each morning. The view is WONDERFUL! Restaurants are within walking distance and so are the many shops in town. Sharon checked us in and went above and beyond during our stay. She was absolutely wonderful from beginning to end. It was our first stay at a bed and breakfast and it was perfect.

I booked this B&B on line without any idea where Chesapeake City was, on route to drop off my daughter in NC. What a surprise to arrive in this charming little town, and to be staying in this wonderful B&B right on the canal. Our room was beautiful, our view of the canal was breath taking and our breakfast was served right outside of our room on the deck overlooking the canal. A block away are sweet stores, a coffee shop, a crab shack and great dining and entertainment on the shoreline. I will go out of my way to return to this wonderful inn. Cakes/brownies/cookies/water/coffee etc all extras available! FIVE STARS!

Great view of the canal and surrounding area from our third floor deck. Stayed two nights and had an excellent breakfast each morning which was served to us on the deck outside of our room.

The first week of August every year, we travel by boat to the Chesapeake. Wherever we go, we always make sure to visit the Shipwatch Inn for at least one night but generally two. The view is gorgeous, the accommodations are exceptional and the breakfast is always top notch. There are many restaurants to sample, shops to visit and the people are so warm and comfortable. I highly recommend visiting the Shipwatch Inn to relax and unwind.

We were here for a wedding and the Inn was an excellent place to stay. The staff were very professional, courteous, and efficient. Breakfast was excellent. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
