Doc Smithers B&B is a treasure. Such a welcomed 24 hours of quiet, peace, and impeccable service. So homey, clean, and comfortable. I made 2 new dear friends too! I cannot say enough about Doc Smithers. I look forward to staying there again in the near future.

We were the only guests so we had the whole second floor to ourselves. We were quite spoiled as they were able to accommodate our fluctuating schedule; we were traveling with a toddler. It was very nice for us that they genuinely seemed to enjoy her company. I slept in the sofa bed of the sitting room in our area....

My mother, myself, and my daughter decided to do a three-day, two-night getaway in the middle of the week to explore some parts of Maryland we'd never seen before. We had a bit of trouble finding a B&B that would accept children (my daughter will be two in July), and we were very happy to receive a reply from Suzan...

I had made many attempts at different B&Bs in the Chesapeake City area to accommodate our Firm's owner for a special Holiday Party that occurs yearly. I happened on Doc Smithers and after one conversation with Captain Ed, I was certain this was THE place to stay. Mr. Atkinson thoroughly enjoyed his conversations with Ed & Susan, and was especially...

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...
