Lovely stay

I felt it was a trip back in time being surrounded by the beautiful antiques. The place was beautiful. The rooms were spacious. I loved having breakfast in the porch. The host was very nice and was very attentive to our needs. Will definitely return and stay at the Blue Max. Location was very close to the shops and the waterfront.

We had a lovely time at the Blue Max Inn in historic Chesapeake City. Christine is a welcoming inn keeper who made sure we were well taken care of. We stayed in the spacious Lindsey room and enjoyed delicious breakfasts, as well as afternoon tea and cookies. The inn and its grounds are beautiful located perfectly to walk to nearby attractions. We had a great stay and hope to return soon.

First time in a B&B, was pleasantly surprised at the cleanliness of the property. Although there were no bath robes in my room. Food was ok, staff was excellent. I would have liked a more hearty breakfast than pastries and sugar.

One of the finest B and Bs ever.

As always a great place to stay, unfortunately we had to leave earlier than expected and didn't even get to spend the night, but the room and hospitality was exceptional... Hope to stay again soon...

My husband and I stayed overnight last weekend. My husband has had some health issues, and Christine the innkeeper was so accommodating. She helped me with our bags and the extra things we had to bring with us. The breakfast was spectacular. We can't say enough good things about Christine and her beautiful B&B. Thanks for a wonderful stay. I haven't slept so good in a long time.
