Each year my dear friend and I leave our families behind for a weekend to escape to a B&B. This year we stayed at Doc Smithers, and our experience was truly extraordinary. While many B&Bs, including this one, are quaint and beautiful, we have never experienced such warmth, graciousness, generosity of spirit and deliciousness before. Our hosts Susan & Ed...

Just returned from a 'girls weekend' in Chesapeake City and enjoyed a wonderful stay at Doc Smithers B&B. Accommodations were lovely -- clean, warm and comfortable from the moment you cross the threshold. Breakfasts were fresh and delicious, and mid-day and evening snacks were a lovely bonus (be forewarned: the bourbon-glazed bread pudding borders on life-altering!) The proprietors, Susan and...

This was our first get away in years as we are now empty-nesters and we could not have asked for a better place to stay! We received a warm welcome and immediately felt at home. The hospitality was amazing from ice cream sundaes, warm cranberry bars; delicious evening coffee to offers of ice tea and treats after a long bike...

Susan and Ed could not have been more inviting. The accommodations were excellent, the breakfasts very tasty, and the afternoon snacks and evening ice cream sundaes were just incredible! They are both very interesting people and have traveled extensively themselves. We were able to share some time together and our conversations were never dull. They recommended places for us to...

My wife and I spent three nights and Ed and Suzan couldn't have been any nicer or accommodating. They were wonderful. As for the parking problem mentioned in a previous review, it was the week-end of the car show. They provided parking in the rear of the B&B because the town didn't allow parking on the main roads for one...

Our hosts were very attentive to our needs, and the accommodations were very nice, and things very clean and tidy. The parking accommodations were lacking however, some later arriving patrons had to park blocks away.

Perfect location in charming, historic Chesapeake City. Captain Ed and "Aunt" Susan had every amenity for us to feel at home and comfortable. The only thing better than the presentation and table settings at breakfast was the food itself! I have allergies and Sue went above and beyond to find gluten and dairy free options to incorporate into the full...
