“Nice, quiet, during the week getaway , in a great location”
Reviewed April 19, 2013

Booked the smallest room for a two night getaway , because we knew we wouldn't be spending a lot of time at the Inn . Bob was kind enough to upgrade us to a larger room . Didn't have much time to spend at the Inn because we were off visiting family, but it was a great place to come home to, after visiting. Breakfast both mornings was deliciously incredible, the "sweet" choice being our favorite. Fireplace during breakfast was a nice touch. Bob was extremely helpful offering many local things to do and great places to eat. We will definitely recommend the Inn to our friends and family.

We had planned to have a wonderful, romantic, off-season get-away at the Inn at the Canal, and Chef Bob provided a perfect setting. We stayed in Chesapeake Haven, and enjoyed a nice view of the canal. We learned a lot about opportunities for dinner and lunch the next day; Bob made us feel so perfectly at home. The Inn was very quiet, and we got a restful night's sleep.

Breakfast was a spectacular start on another great day in Chesapeake City.We enjoyed the fire in the dining room's fireplace, as we sipped our coffee and planned our day.

I highly recommend the Inn at the Canal for a great couples weekend destination.

Stayed at this B & B for a relaxing "sisters" weekend. Everything was pure perfection - the rooms, the breakfast, the host! This stay was exactly what we were looking for. Rooms are authentically decorated and spotlessly clean. The common rooms, especially the dining room, was breathtakingly beautiful. We had a "Downton Abbey" tea and had fun dressing up. The host played the Downton Abbey theme while dining. Bob is an amazing chef and host - very warm and welcoming and friendly. Extra little authentic touches were everywhere - an antique working telephone for guests, beverages and snacks were always available also. The location is prime - you can watch ships coming in from your room. The host is not only an amazing chef and host, but sentimental, as well - as he has his father's ships displayed throughout the inn. Highly recommend this place - you won't be disappointed!!!!!!!!! Can't wait to return!

I surprised my husband with a weekend away for his 60th birthday. Our stay at the Inn at the Canal in Chesapeake City, MD was the icing on the cake. Our room, Greenbrier Point, had a beautiful view of the canal. Bob, one of the owners and chef, created delicious and plentiful breakfasts. Samantha, who served breakfast and made sure our room was pristine, was a delight. The location is ideal, whether to stroll among the shops and to restaurants or drive in/out of town. We both did not want to leave!

A lovely B&B. We stayed in the Upper Bay Suite which is the largest room. It has a separate salon away from the bedroom which made the room seem more like and apartment. Full wet bar area was a very nice touch. The innkeepers Bob and Carol were attentive, warm, and accommodating. Breakfast was interesting and delicious. I would recommend this quaint jewel to anyone.

My husband and I just had the pleasure of staying at the Inn at the Canal Bed and Breakfast. We opted for the Upper Bay Suite which was like having our own little apartment with living room, kitchen and bedroom. The owners and staff could not have been more warm and accommodating. There are a couple restaurants just a stone's throw from the Inn and one on the opposite side of the canal. Speaking of food, I must say that our Innkeeper's breakfast was delicious!! We do plan a return trip.

Room Tip: There are seven rooms with typical size variations found in B&Bs. Some have canal/harbor view...

We stayed in the "Snug Harbor" room for budget sake. It was exactly like it sounds, small, but perfect for us. It was clean and comfortable with wonderful, large windows. No water view in this room, but I enjoyed the view of the bridge. The innkeeper was friendly and made a wonderful breakfast. We traveled on our motorcycle for the night and when the morning brought downpours, he graciously allowed us to stay in the public areas of the house for as long as we needed. We enjoyed the view from the rocking chairs on the porch overlooking the water for the remainder of our stay. Would definitely recommend this B&B.
