My husband and I were celebrating our 8th Anniversary and chose the Ship Watch Inn for a one night stay. The room as clean, roomy and very welcoming. The décor was just lovely. We stayed in the Annapolis Room so we had a Jacuzzi tub also. Our view from the room was outstanding of the C&D Canal where we saw several boats pass by. Our dinner was at the Chesapeake Inn Restaurant and Marina which was a short walk. Sharon prepared our breakfast the next morning and it was delicious. Thank you Ship Watch Inn for a perfect stay and we'll be back.

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.
