Fodor's Review

Three levels of broad decks mean that every room has a place from which to relax and watch all manner of watercraft, including international shipping vessels, sail in and out of the Chesapeake & Delaware Canal just yards away. (A canal-side hot tub offers an even closer view.) Built as a residence in 1920, this elegant, waterfront B&B blends eclectic furnishings with modern amenities. The decades-old black-and-white photos hanging in the public areas reveal much

about the roles the owner-innkeepers' families played in the history of Chesapeake City. The Ship Watch is one of several B&Bs in Chesapeake City.
