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.

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.

Enjoyed the visit so much I returned a few weeks later! Chef Bob was very welcoming and helpful with information on places to explore in the area.

My second stay at the Inn at the Canal and it was even more enjoyable than the first. Bob is so accommodating and his breakfasts are just superb. This trip we stayed in the Upper Suite and it was surprisingly so spacious! The building itself is a real jewel.

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.

We loved the house and our room. Everyone was very pleasant. The only nuisance we want to point out is that the fan portion of the AC unit was very quiet but when the condenser would cycle on about every 10 minutes it was very noisy and made it difficult to hear the TV and also sleep.

My wife and I just had an excellent mid-week, overnight visit to Chesapeake City and the Inn at the Canal. The inn's host, Bob, was very welcoming, the upstairs suite was spacious, comfortable, and well-appointed, and breakfast was hearty. August heat in an upstairs room was a bit daunting upon arrival, but a window ac cooled the bedroom down and ensured a great night's sleep. Chesapeake City and the Inn at the Canal are wonderful places to visit. Would definitely stay again.

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.
