Doc Smithers B&B
Reviewed 14 April 2014 via mobile

I have to start off by saying Ed and Susan (our hosts) went above and beyond to make our stay the most enjoyable we have ever experienced.
We stayed in the Commodore Room and it was absolutely lovely. The bed and linens were extremely comfortable and the charm of our room was incredible.
The food was delicious and Ed, Susan, and Alicia treated us like family.
We will be returning to Doc Smithers to tour the beautiful little town since we had a wedding to attend this time around. This is the only (the best) place to stay when visiting Chesapeake City, Md. You will not be disappointed!!!

Stayed: April 2014, travelled as a couple

What a fantastic room in Chesapeake City! All I can say is it was so much more than I ever would have suspected. We will be returning as soon as possible. The Captain, his beautiful and sweet wife, Suzan, and beyond interesting mother, Alicia, are absolutely the most gracious hosts you will ever find. The comfort of the room was extraordinary. There were so many special touches....I could stay there the rest of my life and be happy. The experience was a gift. The only regret was that we went there for the St. Patricks parade and pub crawl (great time) and missed out on spending more time with the hosts. We will fix that for next time.

Room Tip: Just do it

We travelled by jet skis with our family of five. Susanne, Ed, and Alicia quickly made us feel like family as they showed us to our wonderful rooms in this beautifully decorated historic home. We received wonderful tours and stories from our hosts who could not have been more accommodating. Everything was superb, including the breakfast and selections of sundaes before bed. The owners redefine the meaning of nice! The location was within a block of restaurants, shops, and the marina too. Thank you. Everything was perfect.

Room Tip: They are all beautiful. Can't go wrong

I love this place and love the people that own it even more. It was truly like staying with family, and they've had so many great adventures in their lives it was a true pleasure to hang out and hear their stories. The room was great, and the attention and service was just right. Breakfast was fantastic! This is officially our favorite place to stay in town. Hope to go back soon! csquared (other reviewer) hit the nail on the head! Great place owned by great people.

Chesapeake City is one of those places you hear about by word of mouth. A wonderful place to visit...people are so friendly...you don't have to lock your doors...you get the idea. It's a pretty jewel nestled on the Chesapeake Bay filled with shops and places to eat. Comfortable, picturesque...a wonderful place to spend some time.

We stayed at Doc Smithers which is right along the waterway and in the heart of Chesapeake City. It's a beautiful old home with several rooms for rent. The Schweizer's have done a wonderful job of sharing their home with travelers but giving you space.

I was there for a photo lab and got in around 9PM. They had hot cobbler waiting for me (ice cream on top) and we talked like old friends for a long time. The next morning they served a wonderful breakfast in a breathtaking dining room and we continued the conversation from the prior evening.

All in all, it's a B&B my wife and I intend to return to.

Nestled on Bohemia Avenue in quaint Chesapeake City, MD, Doc Smithers, though a small B&B should not be overlooked. Aside from the comfortable bed, clean and modern en suite bathroom, beautiful decor, and the sitting room with a HUGE flat screen TV, what truly makes a stay at Doc Smithers is the proprietors, Suzan and Ed Schweizer. This couple, and Ed' mother, have traveled extensively and lead very interesting lives. They love people and enjoy swapping stories with their guests. One finds oneself enthusiastically chattering away with the three of them. Suzan, Ed and Mrs. Schweizer (senior) lovely, warm individuals who open their home to guests and make them feel welcome.
