This was our 5th visit to the Inn at the Canal. We love the peace and tranquility of Chesapeake City and try to go once a year. The rooms are nice and clean and Bob makes a delicious gourmet breakfast! I have and will continue to recommend the Inn to family and friends.

What a lovely place to stay on warm weekend in April! My daughter and I loved this charming B&B. The Innkeeper, Bob, couldn’t have been nicer and Lamie was so kind when serving our breakfast. The food was wonderful as well as the presentation. I would stay again! Thank you!

Lovely Victorian Inn in quaint south Chesapeake City with a view of the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal. The innkeeper and staff were wonderful, and breakfast was fabulous.

We spent the weekend at the Inn for a much needed getaway. This was our 5th visit and will definitely go back again! The rooms are comfortable and breakfast is always delicious!! Bob surprised us with an upgraded room! We always recommend the Inn at the Canal to family and friends. PS-free WiFi is always a plus.

Happened on this B&B because the local chain hotel was booked. What a fortunate turn of events! The inn is beautiful and the service was great. Would certainly book again.

First I'd like to say the Inn is clean...very clean. The maintenance and up keep is obviously important to them. The Breakfast was fantastic. The owner is a trained Chef so you wont go wrong with the food. The Inn is an Historical Building that is deeply embedded in the history of the town itself. My new place to stay when in the area.

The Inn at the Canal is a really nice place to stay. My second visit. The owners are very nice and the breakfast was amazing. The suite on the top floor has plenty of space for a small family. Remember the house is old and not a modern look. You will see cracks and drafty windows from the age of this historic home. Price was a little high for winter. But compete with surrounding B&Bs

We celebrated our 36th anniversary and chose the Inn at the Canal from an ad in a local magazine. What a great chance find! Beautiful historic home, small town, great food. Could not have been better! A+
