What a perfect place to stay in a perfect little coastal area. Service, rooms and ambiance was perfect. I will stay there again when I visit the area. Thank you for a great stay.

We only visited overnight and typically do not stay at B&B's. Staying at the Ship Watch Inn has changed our minds. It was clean, had a great view and the staff was very accommodating. We will definitely be back. Oh yes, the eggs benedict on Sunday morning are the best!!

Wanted to stay on the water for our 10 year wedding anniversary and found this little gem. Very quite and relaxing. Renee and Sharon were very gracious and down to earth. We stayed in the Annapolis Suite for the weekend which gave us a wonderful view of the bridge and canal. The suite was what we expected. Just enough room and very clean and comfortable. We had a chance to explore the town on foot visiting all the shops and had dinner at the Tap Room (cash only) and the Chesapeake Inn Restaurant. Breakfast is served each morning at the Ship Watch Inn and is very good and is never the same during your stay. Cake, cookies, sofa, water and coffee and always available for free at any time of the day or night. Had a wonderful experience and would certainly not hesitate to stay again sometime.

My mother-in-law and I had an absolutely perfect weekend at the Shipwatch Inn. Such a fantastic view from our deck. Appreciated the lovely Christmas decor and the complimentary coffee, tea and dessert and the relaxing, cozy dining room to sit and chat, have a treat and enjoy the view. The hosts were so kind and helpful and we enjoyed talking to them and appreciated their advice on where to eat and how to get there. (All within easy walking distance). I can't say enough about this wonderful B&B in the little hidden gem --- Chesapeake City. I have raved about it to all my friends here at work and in fact, plan to come back with my husband. We are both bikers and will enjoy the C&D trail while we are visiting.

My entire wedding party booked the whole inn for 2 nights for my wedding. We had a great time, and had wonderful things to say. FIrst of all, the rooms are far more modern than anything else we saw in Chesapeake City, while still keeping the charming quaint feel (think upgraded bathrooms with soaking tubs, but beautiful antique furniture). The balcony views are simply stunning, no matter which room you are staying in. The only complaints I heard from the party were the rooms not having individual temperature controls (this was not a problem for me, as I stayed in the top floor Annapolis suite, which has its own heat/AC), and problems with parking. They have a tiny lot right outside for 4 cars, and their is street parking right there, but if that is full you have to park a block or so down. We had guests pull up and unload, then find parking. This worked for us because we all knew eachother and could block eachother in, but I could see it definitely being a problem. My only other concern was that the suites are sort of meant to be bridal suites (my room came with my reception at Chesapeake Inn Ballroom), but they aren't quite set up that way and we had to improvise. I only had 6 people doing makeup and 4 doing hair, but if you were doing more it could get tricky. All in all, it was absolutely worth it to be right on the water, and the service was outstanding. I definitely recommend!

We have stayed at The Ship Watch Inn on a few occasions and each stay was just wonderful The staff is very accommodating, the rooms are lovely and the breakfasts are delicious. It is very well maintained, quiet and the views of the canal are beautiful. In the warmer seasons you can sit out and enjoy the canal activities and views right from your sliding glass door in your room. We always enjoy our stay and will be back again.

First time at a B & B and we loved it! The Chesapeake Suite was really nice and comfortable. Loved that the rooms are all on the Canal, beautiful scenery. We walked the town and found some neat places to get food/drink and met some really nice people. Didn't have time to checkout the shops in town though. We will be back again when its a bit warmer out and more people around. I heard there is a lot to do in the summer.
