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.

We weren't sure about having our honeymoon at a B&B but we had a delightful time with lots of privacy in the Chesapeake Suite at the Ship Watch Inn. Our breakfasts were served on our balcony overlooking the beautiful C&D canal, and the location is an to the other restaurants in town, several of which offer canal views. Sharon was... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Kent room on the third floor with doors opening right onto the balcony. We saw several large ships during our one night stay. We did not find noise to be a problem at all as mentioned in other reviews. A code for the front door made coming and going very easy after hours.... More

We had three nights here and loved the beautiful town and being able to walk to bars and restaurants along the water. all rooms open out onto a shared terrace, over three levels. Our room was very comfortable with everything we needed. coffee, tea, sodas and fresh baking are always available in the lounge. very relaxing stay.

Our stay at the Ship Watch Inn was one of our favorites. Our room was very comfortable with a great deck to relax on a rocking chair and watch the ships and barges traveling the canal. Incredible! The room was tastefully decorated, comfortable and had a great private bathroom with the softest towels. We had 2 delicious breakfasts served outside... More

The Ship Watch Inn is in the beautiful town of Chesapeake City, MD. The inn sits right by the water, and there are beautiful water front views from every room. Our room was lovely, clean, with a very comfortable king bed, nice linens, and jacuzzi tub. Breakfast was delicious, and was served on the first floor porch. You may also... More

We love this place! We have stayed overnight for our anniversary and recently celebrated our 30th at the ship watch. We usually go over to the Chesapeake inn for food, drinks and entertainment. Innkeeper was very friendly and made you feel at home. Breakfast was nice on the porch outside our room. Can't wait for the next visit!

I stay here overnight when things get too hectic at home. I stay here longer when I need a mini-vacation. I love it. Contrary to one review, you can reach management after 5 by calling the number on the front door code card.

200 miles into a 400 mile bike trip we had the good fortune of staying at the Ship Watch. It exceeded all expectations. The rooms are large, the porches/balconies offer great views. The amenities top-notch. A hidden gem that offers a great value!
