Our go-to getaway place. Love to relax on the deck and watch the ships go by. Breakfast is awesome! Be sure to get 1st or second floor room as the 3rd floor is nice but the deck does not have a roof so, if it rains….. well…..

My husband and I stayed at the Inn for 2 nights for our 52nd wedding anniversary. We loved every minute of our stay. We stayed in the Annapolis suite and the view was wonderful. We enjoyed sitting on the porch and rocking in the rocking chairs to watch the ships go by. We will go again next year. The B&B... More

My wife and I stayed two nights at the Ship Watch Inn starting on August 16th, 2015. We stayed in #3, the Talbot room. It's a very nice room with a flat screen TV, nice bed, private bath, and all the usual stuff you'd expect at a nice hotel. It has an incredible view of the canal from the balcony.... More

Several of us take an annual trip to Chesapeake City by boat. Most of us stay at the local bed and breakfasts and enjoy the shopping and restaurants while we are there. My wife and I have stayed at three of the inns there and the Ship Watch Inn is by far the best property there. The rooms are always... More

We really enjoyed our stay at the Ship Watch Inn. They have a great view of the canal and the food was amazing and super gourmet. If you are sensitive to smells however the room had a moldy smell that was only manageable if the A/C was on at all times. Given the heat and the moisture I am not... More

We enjoyed the time we spent at Ship Watch Inn. Rene, Sharon, Ashley and Anna were very nice and accommodating. The Inn was clean and beautifully decorated. The best part was sitting on the porch watching the traffic on the canal. We were on the first floor and the glass doors opened to the porch and hot tub making it... More

If you live a busy life, this is an ideal spot to relax, refresh and recharge. Located on the C&D Canal, the Shipwatch Inn provides the perfect setting. Located across the Canal from Schaffer's Canal House, and across the street from the Chesapeake Inn, you enjoy a beautiful view of the canal ideal for "ship watching." The rooms are gorgeous...

Loved our stay in Chesapeake City -- the room was very nice and the breakfast was over the top! Great views of the C&D Canal and the boat traffic from the decks! Bed was comfortable and the bathroom was clean... dining and enjoying our coffee on the rear deck was very relaxing.

We had a wonderful stay at the Ship Watch Inn. Our room on the third floor had a great view of the canal and breakfast was served just outside our room on the deck. You couldn't ask for a better way to start your day. The room was clean and the staff was very friendly.
