We stayed here with some friends for a weekend getaway and had a great time. The town was very nice, and there were plenty of places within walking distance to shop, eat, drink and be merry. This was our first real Bed and Breakfast and it was a real pleasant surprise. We would definitely recommend it to others and will be returning in the future when the weather gets warmer and we will be able to enjoy sitting on the porch and enjoy the waterway views.

My daughter got married in November and everything went great. The room was very comfortable and breakfast, you couldn't have asked for a better meal. My daughter's wedding was beautiful and we had great weather for taking pictures outside. I can't wait to visit again.

My husband and I stayed for two nights recently. We had a warm, welcoming experience. Sharon and Renee made sure we were satisfied with our stay. Can't wait to return. The hot tub was not working at the time of our visit but we were compensated with a gift certificate for money off a future stay and also with a gift certificate the the Chesapeake Inn. The breakfast was delish and the baked goods were an added treat.

My husband and I and one of couple visited Ship Watch on 3/19/16. We were a little late, but the innkeepers had our information ready for us and it was an easy check-in. Our rooms were a bit small but nicely furnished (not looking for a big room anyway since only sleeping there). Our room overlooked the Canal and had a wonderful deck but it was too cold to go on the deck. We dined that evening at the Chesapeake Inn and had a good meal. Prior to dinner, we like to have wine and cheese at the inn, but there really is no sitting room to do that so we improvised and used the check-in desk. The next morning, we had a FABULOUS breakfast of eggs benedict with fresh fruit and OJ. After a short walk around town, we headed home. It is a very comfortable inn for the value and the innkeeper was very nice. It also is one of the only places that offers a 1 night stay, which is what we wanted..

This is a great treasure in Chesapeake City. The inn keeper was delightful. It was our first experience at a B&B and had a pleasant stay. We will be back!

My husband and I stay here every February. The Ship Watch Inn is our favorite place close to home. The rooms are absolutely beautiful, spacious, clean and the view is amazing!!! We are lovers of summer time, but coming here in the winter is the only thing we look forward to every year. The staff are amazing!! The eggs benedict with crab is delicious!! Even the guests that stay are great!! We have had great conversations with the guests. Walking through the little quaint town, running into people we met back at the Inn, makes it feel like home away from home. We CAN NOT WAIT to come back in 2017. Ship Watch Inn, Chesapeake Inn, Chesapeake City.....WE LOVE YOU!!

Chesapeake City is one of my favorite American towns- so quaint and quiet and the ships going thru the C& D Canal are amazing. But the Ship Watch was absolutely lovely- clean- incredible views and the breakfast was delicious. Suzanne

First time staying in a B&B and Ship Watch Inn did not disappoint! Everything I'd imagined was realized: Cozy, homey, inviting, clean and comfy. Privacy when desired and friendly, local knowledge by wonderful innkeepers, Sharon and Rene! Daily breakfast was delicious and I haven't even mentioned the quaint little shops/restaurants or the amazing water view!

The room was very nice and Sharon was kind. Giving advice on restaurants sightseeing etc. What a beautiful little town. I would like to go back in the spring or summer. Very quaint and clean bed and breakfast.
We are happy to hear you enjoyed our town. We look forward to your visit in the Spring.
