This is a great couples getaway. The town is full of life, young or older, you will find a lot to do. We are water lovers so we always stay near the water, this was our sixth time. We stayed in the Wicomico room on the first floor, very lovely. The rooms are elegantly furnished, fairly priced and all have... More

We had a lovely stay at Ship Watch Inn! Staff is friendly and accommodating, room was lovely, view of the canal was beautiful! Close walk to shops and restaurants. My husband said his eggs Benedict was over cooked... I asked for scrambled and they were happy to accommodate. We'll be back again I'm sure!

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at the Ship Watch Inn. Clean comfortable rooms with a great view of the canal. Staff were all very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was very good, and served right outside our room on the balcony. Restaurants and stores are all in walking distance from the Inn. Wonderful stay, we will defiantly return.

We love the food, the views are spectacular and the Inn Keeper (Renee) always cooks up an awesome breakfast and provides us with a welcome greeting that keeps us coming... More

My husband and I had a fantastic overnight getaway to Ship Watch Inn. Our room (Queen Ann)was spotless and comfortable. We had breakfast on the deck in the morning - Coffee, OJ, Fresh Fruit, French Toast and Bacon - YUM! We don't travel much, but would definitely consider a return visit in the future.

This is our third visit to Chesapeake City and our third stay at this beautiful B&B. We've stayed in both Suites and they are large, comfortable, tastefully decorated, and boast fantastic views. We've also stayed in the smaller Kent and Dorchester and I loved those rooms as well. Each room is unique. While there are plenty of beautiful antique furnishings,... More

We come to Maryland every year to visit family. We just discovered this year this wonderful bed and breakfast. The rooms are so well decorated. The ability to walk out of your room on to a large deck was great. ( every room has it!) The experience exceeded our expectations and had excellent location on the water. We paid these... More

From the time we check in til our hugs good bye, Renea ALWAYS make us feel welcome! The rooms are clean and comfortable! The homemade breakfast (yummy waffles with fruit or eggs benedict with crab meat) are out of this world! Wonderful weekend getaway!

On our way home from VA, we stopped in Chesapeake City, MD because of a steamed crab restaurant that was recommended by a family member so we booked a room at Ship Watch. We stayed in the Kent room which was just a bit small but decorated nicely. Renee greeted us upon check in and couldn't have been nicer. My... More
