Its difficult to find a hotel or B& B these days that take care of your every wish, impressively, Doc Smithers B&B not only anticipates your desires but also fulfills them immediately when expressed.There's absolutely not one hotel or B&B that can " top" or compare to Doc Smithers B&B.

Back again for our second visit. The innkeepers, Susan and Ed, not only spoil you, but make you feel like you are their good friends. The breakfast is the perfect balance between gourmet and comfort foods. The suite is spacious, comfortable and beautiful with pieces of art from around the world. We highly recommend this B&B in Chesapeake City and... More

Ed and Suzan and their mother are by far the finest B & B hosts that we have ever experienced. Prior to our visit, we received a phone call to tell us about a "happening" during our visit in Chesapeake City to be sure we arrived in time and were able to take part. Their B & B is a... More

Suzan and Ed are incredible hosts and think of every detail to make for a memorable visit. They are willing to share the incredible history of the house and of the beautiful antiques and treasures they have accrued from their world travels. There is plenty to do in the area and we appreciated their many suggestions. The B and B... More

Traveling from New Jersey I had to be at a wedding in Earleville, Maryland on October 11, 2014. Unfortunately, I procrastinated in finding a place to stay. Calling around to no avail, only Ed and Sue, owners of Doc Smithers B & B went out of their way to accommodate me. Ed and Sue are two of the most gracious... More

Suzan and Ed are wonderful hosts. And very knowledgeable about this truly delightful historical place. And the breakfasts are amazing. Best French Toast I've ever eaten! The C & D Canal is something that I did not know about prior to coming here.

We stayed here in June and loved every second. It has beautiful rooms and the hospitality if the staff was wonderful. We found it very easy to access and the scenery was absolutely gorgeous. We enjoyed our stay thoroughly!

What a great time we had as guests of Sue, Ed, and Alicia at Doc Smithers B and B! They are fantastic hosts and it was so nice of them to help arrange dinner reservations and a concert to celebrate our anniversary. It was fun staying in a beautifully restored historical home amongst antiques and memorabilia. Additionally, our hosts provided... More

We recently stayed at Doc Smithers B&B and it was wonderful. From the moment we entered the home, Ed and Suzan made us feel welcome. Our stay began with a tour of the home which took us back in time, hearing about all of the places they lived while serving in the military. Suzan shared stories about antiques she collected...

We had a great time using Doc Smithers B&B for our stay in Chesapeake City. The character and history within the bed and breakfast are amazing. Sue and Ed provide tea, an ice cream social, a wonderful breakfast, and fascinating conversation. It is located in the heart of Chesapeake City and provides easy access to the many small shops and...
