My wife and I were here for our second stay in the last two years. The rooms are beautifully kept and you cannot beat the view from the second or third floor rooms. The entre staff makes you feel like family and breakfast was excellent and served on the deck at your room. You are treated like royalty, without the... More

A lovely B&B located on the south bank of the canal that bisects the town. Inn is very clean, bed was very comfortable, breakfast was nice. Innkeepers were great and helpful. Would definitely return again.

My girlfriend and I were in town for a special event and stayed in the Annapolis Suite for the night and had a night that we won't ever forget. It was topped off with one of the best breakfasts that I have ever had which consisted of a fresh fruit cup with blueberries, watermelon, cantaloupe, kiwi, strawberry, and orange. Fresh... More

We first stayed at the Ship Watch Inn a couple of years ago for a wedding. We liked it so much, we wanted to return for a weekend getaway. Aside from the rain that weekend in May, we had a great time. Everything is within walking distance. We stayed in the Talbot room which is on the second floor and... More

My husband was at a wedding right next door to this B&B and decided to take a look. He thought it was so nice and liked that it was on the water. So, we booked a night for our Anniversary. Every room was beautiful (I peeked...) and coffee was waiting - with a delicious Breakfast to follow - right outside... More

We truly enjoyed our stay at this very nice establishment. The breakfasts were outstanding and the goodies that were available 24/7 were delish! The only negative thing about our stay was that the hot tub was not functioning. We can't wait to return for another trip.

This place is awesome! Beautiful decor and spotless. View of the C&D is incredible from your own rocking chairs outside your room. Breakfast is served at your table right outside your room and totally scrumptious! You can't miss visiting the Chesapeake Inn to watch some power boats pull in and the quaint shops in town. All walkable!

We can't say enough about the place - a little gem right on the waterfront. Park your car and walk everywhere. We had a lovely little room on the 2nd floor - you will share the balcony with 3 other guests eating breakfast and having R&R time so if you don't like other guests - not the place for you!... More

We came in for one night for a wedding. The Inn keeper who met us was very nice and described how we get in at night and what we could expect in the morning. The suite was spacious and well appointed for a B&B. The view from the deck off the room had great views of the canal and bridge.... More

The Ship Watch Inn is the only B&B which doesn't require a 2 night minimum stay. Since we only had one night to celebrate our anniversary, we were very happy when Renee called to say they had a cancellation for the very night we wanted, June 24. We were greeted warmly and offered delicious home-baked choc. chip cookies and red... More
