We recently stayed at Doc Smithers B&B and it was wonderful. From the moment we entered the home, Ed and Suzan made us feel welcome. Our stay began with a tour of the home which took us back in time, hearing about all of the places they lived while serving in the military. Suzan shared stories about antiques she collected along their travels, their family treasures, the history of the house, etc. She welcomed us to "be at home" and enjoy our stay, offered to take us on a tour of the town, schedule reservations for dinner, etc.
Ed and Suzan certainly know how to bring back "southern hospitality." Every meal is served on fine china - using linen napkins and home-made recipes passed down from generations. Suzan is a wonderful cook and gracious hostess, and Ed is a true gentleman.
If you are looking for a step back in time, while in Chesapeake City, we recommend visiting Doc Smithers. The house is conveniently located in the center of town and the innkeepers are truly delightful! It was a pleasure meeting them and we look forward to another visit in the near future.
