We have been to the Ship Watch a few times. It is a beautiful BNB. The rooms are immaculately kept with everything you need. The beds are very cozy. There are private bathrooms in each room. The prices are very reasonable. The view is wonderful as it is located right on the water. Breakfasts are delicious and there is always coffee and water available in the adorable dining area. We highly recommend the Ship Watch and can’t wait to return.

My husband and I stayed here one night before my sister in laws wedding & it was AMAZING!!! We had some car trouble on the way in & called Renee & let her know we would be a “late check in” and she was so accommodating and understanding! We arrived around 8:30pm and had our key & door code waiting for us at the front door. (Inn keeper/Renee leaves around 5pm) After we checked in, got settled and read through the paperwork attached to our key, we were extremely pleased to see that refreshments & pastries were offered (self serve) all night in the dining room! So thankful to have a cold bottle of water and yummy chocolate oreo cake to snack on! The room was perfectly clean, the view from the balcony was beautiful & when we woke in the morning, we headed downstairs for a HOT breakfast! Renee was so so SO sweet and welcomed us with ham and cheese omelets, fresh fruit, coffee, juice, toast & warm hash brown casserole. It made us feel like we were at home!!! We were extremely saddened to have to pack our bags and check out after our stay, we would have loved to stay & relax a few more days! WE WILL BE BACK!

My husband and I try to come and spend a weekend here once a month, It is truly a little gem, love going to the shops in town, dinner at Chesapeake Inn and usually going across the canal to Schaefer’s Canal House for lunch, the inn keeper Renee is so sweet and always has something fresh baked to snack on in the kitchen and the breakfast is delicious. If you haven’t stayed here you should we have met so many wonderful people during our stays.

After many months of preparing my home for sale, moving in with new husband, merging households....this was the perfect place for our winter honeymoon. We did nothing and enjoyed it so very much. It was the relaxation we needed. The room was perfect for ship watching....get it?? We received a warm welcome and options for wine tasting throughout the week. All in all, it was a wonderful, relaxing few days!

We only had time for a 2 day, 1 night getaway as a surprise Christmas gift to my husband. Our stay here was perfect for that. The room was very clean and comfortable and we got a kick out of watching a heron watching us on our balcony as it floated down the canal on driftwood. Breakfast was just right and the extra treats were a delight! Thank you! We will be back again.
