Welcome to Inn at the Canal

For a little Rest, Rum & Relaxation on Maryland’s Eastern Shore...

Chesapeake City has longstanding acclaim for its charming accommodations on the C&D Canal. The Inn at the Canal stands apart with its historic 1800's Victorian architecture and a newly added Rum Lounge & outdoor Rum Garden. The bar features rum cocktails and unique rums from around the world while also providing other spirits, wine and beer.

Our Inn features 7 cozy rooms ranging in size to accommodate for romantic getaways, weekend wedding stays, corporate retreats or just a simple staycation at the head of the Chesapeake Bay. Most of our guest rooms have been recently renovated. While renovating, an effort was made to maintain the building's ornate characteristics that are circa 1870 when it was originally constructed as a home to a wealthy local family.

With our centralized location on Bohemia Avenue in the heart of South Chesapeake City, bridge and canal views are just a few steps away and the Back Creek Basin is the prime view from our outdoor seasonal Rum Garden. Be sure to catch the ocean-bound cargo and passenger ships that pass through daily, or hang out with us for some live music on the weekend!

If you are the adventurous type, you are bound to discover an array of activities to enjoy while you're here. Take the ferry boat or water cruises, walk the C&D Canal trail, sip on local wines and brews, or expand your horizon with the many local towns and attractions. The scenery itself will not disappoint. Whatever brings you here, we'll make sure you want to stay a little while longer!

When you think of Maryland cuisine, your first thought likely goes to the iconic blue crab. Crab cakes, Old Bay steamed crabs, soft-shell crabs, cream of crab soup, Maryland crab soup, crab imperial, crab dip. (Reminds us of a scene from the movie Forrest Gump!) While we're big fans of all things crab, you'll actually find a wide variety of regional specialties and fusion...
