Great Homemade Breakfast. See GIANT ships pass under bridge at waterfront balcony. Free Snacks, Cookies, Coffee, Tea, Water, Sodas. Quaint shops (antique, jewelry, clothing, art, gifts, ice cream and general store) and intriguing marina, restaurants and bars (Chesapeake Inn, Bayard House, Tap Room, Bohemia Cafe, Hole in the Wall, 225 Prime) and frequent entertainment. Everything comfortable walking distance.

We had an excellent stay here and will come back. On the canal with great views, clean rooms and wonderful Inn Keepers. Perfect location, walking distance to restaurants and shops. Highly recommended.

We went to Ship Watch in Chesapeake to do the Holiday House tour and decided to say the weekend with friends. It was awesome. The tour of the beautiful historical houses put us in the Christmas spirit and the owners of the homes were so friendly. The shops are unique and we found great gifts for ourselves and others. We...

Our two-day stay was very pleasant -- a quiet room, comfortable bed, lovely canal-front location. The hosts were very welcoming -- we especially enjoyed the delicious treats they left out for us each night. Would like to return someday!

The Inn is very charming and comfortable. View from the room was terrific. Service and breakfast were very good. We will definitely return. The little village is quite charming although by the time we arrived most of the stores were closed but they looked interesting.
