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

This was our first trip to Chesapeake City & the Ship Watch Inn. We received a gift card for Christmas. We couldn't have been more pleased. The INN was beautiful. We stayed in the Annapolis Suite. It was decorated so lovely. The view was great. The room was very clean. The Jacuzzi tub was super clean & relaxing! And the... More

This was our second visit to the Ship Watch.. We love to come here. The people are very nice, the rooms are great.. The view is amazing of the bay. Love to sit out on the deck and watch the boats and the barges go down the water way.. We even booked for next year already

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

This is a lovely inn in a charming town. We stayed in the Somerset Room on the first floor and had a great view of the canal from either inside the room or outside on the porch. Our room was very nicely kept and the bed very comfortable. The hot breakfast was served at our table for two on the... More

We chose the Ship Watch Inn so we could sit on a covered porch, rock in their lovely chairs and watch giant tankers go down the canal. The bed was soooo comfortable. There are tasty cookies and cakes available all day if you have a sweet tooth. We earned it by riding our bikes down the trail on the other... More

My husband and I stayed in the Queen Anne room. It was comfortable and spotless. The Innkeeper was extremely helpful when we had to change the date of our reservation. The back veranda had a spectacular view -- at both night and during the day, while breakfast was delicious and the service was both competent and very gracious. We wouldn't... More

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

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
