Perfect Birthday

5 on October 07, 2017

Thanks to Bob, my mother had a perfect 87th birthday. As a native of Chesapeake , she has stories to tell and memories to stir. Bob was interested in listening to my mother and asking questions about the history of the Inn and town. Bob made her feel like a million bucks. My mother, sister and I enjoyed staying at the Inn. We loved the accommodations, location and breakfast. The third floor balcony was a hit, a beautiful city to view from a high spot. Thanks goes to Samantha, Bob’s assistant, who was warm and friendly. Everyone paid attention to details; especially the ones that warm your heart making sure the experience goes beyond expectations.


The Perfect Choice

We had a wonderful 2 night stay At the Inn. The room was exceptional, the Hospitality was warm and the Breakfast on both days was wonderful. My Wife is Celiac (Gluten Free not by choice). Bob took the time to create meals to fit her needs. Above and Beyond. We will be back. Thank You !!!


Great Location - Service - Ambiance

5 on September 26, 2017

Just a 1 hour 15 minute ride from Bucks County Chesapeake City, MD has much to offer. We were lucky enough to book a room on Sunday morning with the intention of watching the Eagles game on the outdoor deck at the Chesapeake Inn which sits behind the Inn at the Canal Bed and Breakfast. We couldn't have had a better day! If you like shopping, eating with a waterfront view, you must visit Chesapeake City. The accommodations at the Inn at the Canal were clean, cozy and had me wishing for another night stay. We were greeted with an excellent breakfast of fresh home-made muffins, blueberry French toast, fresh fruit. Bob and Carol thank you!! We can't wait to come back again.


Great location

4.6 on September 24, 2017

My wife and I spent 2 at Inn at the Canal. We really enjoyed Chesapeake City and this B&B placed us right in the center of all that the village has to offer. This Inn is very quaint and the Inn keeper were very hospitable and friendly, willingly offering information and suggestions about the local area. Our room was nicely appointed and reflected the charm of the late 19th from the era when the house was built. Having Bob, the owner, being a trained chef meant that breakfast was a treat to be saviored each morning. I would stay here again.


Quaint and Relaxing with an Outstanding Breakfast

4.6 on September 24, 2017

This was our 2nd stay and we will continue to come back! The rooms are comfy and the atmosphere is very relaxing. The full course breakfast was our favorite and we are looking forward to our next visit!!!


Love that Colonial House

4.6 on September 23, 2017

Really enjoyed a long labor day weekend there. While a little pricey, it certainly is competitive with other B&Bs in Chesapeake City. The food was very good, and they accomodate extra guests we had very graciously. We also had a wonderful rainy day playing board games in the livingroom. It was a real piece of home.


Outstanding hospitality

4.6 on September 10, 2017

My wife and I stayed at this wonderful B&B during a short relaxing get away to Chesapeake City. The hospitality of the innkeepers was more than we expected. We had a great breakfast each morning with Bob being very attuned to special dietary restrictions while still offering delicious and fresh foods. It would be easy to become accustomed to having a culinary trained chef making breakfast for us everyday. Each room at the Inn At The Canal has a unique charm in a historic home. The age of the house brings its own character for the guests staying there. The location is close to everything is Chesapeake City, the innkeepers are very kind and helpful, all key ingredients to a pleasant vacation.


Wonderful Stay

Family Adventure

4.6 on September 05, 2017

Breakfast was delicious and the hosting superb. Convenient location to the marina. Worthwhile splurge for our family sailing adventure! The kids enjoyed visiting an historic setting and the sights were lovely.


Great Breakfast, Bed Not So Much

4.2 on September 04, 2017

My Wife and I have stayed at the Inn At The Canal Bed and Breakfast several times, and we always get the same room. This most recent stay was everything that we come to expect, everything that is but the unexpected mattress change. On previous stays at the Inn we marveled at the comfort of whatever brand of memory foam mattress they had waiting for us, but this time it felt like some old spring type. As always, the place was full of old world charm, and the breakfasts were outstanding. We will stay with them again, but may roll the dice and put our money on a different room with hopefully a better mattress.
