The Inn is beautiful, furnished in lovely antiques, and our room was perfect! We had a view of the canal from our window. Very clean and comfortable. Chef Bob, the owner, created fabulous, filling breakfasts each morning. He is also very knowledgeable about the history of the canal and the town; a pleasure to talk with him! We enjoyed sitting on the side porch with a view of the canal, as well as walking by watching the barges, and freighter go by. Thank you Chef Bob, Carol, and Samantha for a lovely vacation.

I cannot even begin to describe the amazingness of this bed and breakfast. The owner, Bob was an absolute breathe of fresh air. Very accommodating and gracious. The town itself....imagine being in the cutest movie ever. The store owners, restaurant wait staffs and the scenery was just picture perfect. If you need a romantic getaway or a friends weekend, this is the place to go. Just an incredible experience.

Bob was a great host and chef. The room had a great view over the canal. Bob was loaded with history of the area and places to visit. Our next trip to Maryland, we will stay again.

We were pleasantly surprised at the overall facility. Bob was a " Great Inn Keeper" and also Chef. His breakfast was unbelievable. My wife saw him outside picking fresh herbs just before breakfast was served. Our room was outstanding, view of the canal and we watched several sail boats navigate through the canal. We will be back in the future. Barry.

Step back in time and enjoy the relaxing atmosphere of the Inn at The Canal. I stayed in the smallest room, Snug Harbor, which was perfect for me. As a woman travelling alone it is important that I feel safe and I could not have been happier. Wonderful sheets, mattress felt new, lovely spa amenities, clean, and breakfast that makes getting up early worth it. Loved it.
