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.

My husband and I have made day trips from Philadelphia to Chesapeake City before, but never stayed overnight. We decided to stay the weekend for our anniversary. We had a lovely stay at the Ship Watch. We were able to get a parking spot upon arrival which was great since parking is pretty limited. The Inn was decorated very nicely for the fall. We stayed in the Talbot Room which was comfortable and lovely. The rooms were very clean. The view from the outside deck was incredible. This was our first time staying at a B&B, so the adjustment to the noise was a little hard to get used to - there were a few couples celebrating late on the deck one night and smoking right outside our sliding door. Breakfast the next morning was delicious and service was great. My only complaint is that on Sunday morning, the water bottles were completely empty from the fridge, so there was not water. We had overheard a table to people traveling together saying how they came down in the middle of the night to get a bunch of water and cleared it out. I would expect things like that to be refilled first thing in the morning (by this time it was about 9am). Overall a great stay and would definitely return!

I stayed one night while attending a party at the nearby Chesapeake Inn. The Inn is charming -- lovely room right on the canal and a short walk to stores and sights. The breakfast was delicious and the staff couldn't have been friendlier.

We live about an hour and a half from the Shipwatch. We were guests at this B&B last year and wanted to return with friends. They were not disappointed. We had good sunny weather and enjoyed our time at Shipwatch. Local restaurants are great. Breakfast and snacks at Shipwatch were very nice. A good time was had by all!

We have stayed many times at the shipwatch inn. I believe we have stayed in every room. We love it here. Renee and her staff are second to none. The rooms are clean and the view is spectacular! If you are lucky a large ship will pass down the canal. Being that close to one is something to behold. The town is quite and quaint. The locals are very friendly and you don't have to worry about crime. The Chesapeake inn is a great place for brunch, lunch or dinner. The sushi is outstanding and the drinks are a real treat. We were just down last Sunday and ate on their terrace. Beautiful. Getting back to the shipwatch! Many rooms have jacuzzis and fireplaces. The decks have a perfect view of the C&D canal. The breakfast is always delicious in a pleasing atmosphere. Coffee,soft drinks,water,cookies and cake are available anytime. The Wifi doesn't skip a beat. That just about sums it up. You won't regret staying at the shipwatch! Don Whisler

Wow - we just stayed at Ship Watch and it was a fabulous 2 day trip. My husband and I stayed in the Chesapeake Suite. It was very spacious - and what a view . We ate breakfast the first morning on our deck - it was divine and then the second morning we ate in the dining room as we had to leave right away. Parking is a little tight but we were able to find a spot on a street nearby and our vehicle was safe . Will be planning another trip in either the Spring or the Fall. Sounds like alot of fun happenings in the town so want to check them out in the future. Thank you to all at the Ship Watch Inn for making our 25 Year Anniversary getaway a wonderful one.

Our anniversary was in June and our kids gave us a stay here and dinner at Chesapeake Inn. What a relaxing time - loved the jacuzzi. The room was lovely and breakfast delicious. Nice 2 hour afternoon cruise with MV Bay Breeze with pickup at town dock - a very short walk from the inn.

Chesapeake City was a perfect getaway thanks to the accommodations and staff of the Ship Watch Inn. We plan to return!

We had such a wonderful weekend, we already booked for the same time next year. The rooms are spacious and clean. Breakfast was served on the porch each morning. The view is WONDERFUL! Restaurants are within walking distance and so are the many shops in town. Sharon checked us in and went above and beyond during our stay. She was absolutely wonderful from beginning to end. It was our first stay at a bed and breakfast and it was perfect.
