Wife and I went to Ship Watch Inn for our 39th wedding anniversary. Very relaxing. B&B and rooms were very clean and decorated nicely. Staff was very nice and helpful! Great view of canal from balcony, and close to everything you need!

We go to the Ship Watch Inn twice a year to relax and enjoy. We always choose the Annapolis room which is a large beautiful room, sitting area, large bathroom and outside balcony. We love to sit on the balcony and watch the boating activity in the marina and the amazing cargo ships going through the canal. Breakfast at the... More

Good breakfast and everyone was friendly and helpful. Stayed on the second floor which was nice except the people above us sounded like they were jumping on a pogo... More

My husband and I loved this place. The room was lovely and very clean. The view of the C & D canal afforded us relaxation and entertainment as we enjoyed watching the boats go by. We felt so pampered having breakfast and coffee on the porch overlooking the canal. The inn is walking distance to the shops and restaurants which... More

We went here in our anniversary; stayed on the second floor. Great breakfast- wonderful service. Abby did a terrific job. We had a nice meal/ happy hour at the nearby Chesapeake Inn ( same owners as b&b ). I World have expected dime promotion/discount from the b&b for the place. Drinks were pricey...$11 for a run and tonic..but I think... More

We stayed in the Kent room on the 3rd floor. Although one of their smaller rooms, it was very comfortable for two. The bathroom was nice size with a shower and everything was very clean. Breakfast was served on the balcony outside of our room which had a great view of the canal. Snacks, water and soda were available during... More

Our first Bed & Breakfast, it was fabulous. Got to sit on the porch and rock time away waiting for a ship to go by on the canal. Rooms were spacious and had their own bathrooms. There are 3 floors, each floor had their own deck and each floor has chairs and tables. Breakfast was served on the porch, plenty... More

Or you can see the ships and barges from the comfort of your room. The room was simple, the ac worked very well (though no way to control it from the room), and we could see the canal right from the bed. (I checked the "bay view" box on the site, but I mean canal view.) Rooms face east, and... More
