About Inn at The Canal
Built in 1876 and historically registered, the Inn was built by Henry Brady, who operated the mule-barge team that pulled ships through the canal, to celebrate the birth of his first son. This home is the largest and most ornate on Bohemia Avenue, a Victorian Gothic with Italianate and Stick decoration, and many of the fine architectural details have been preserved, including the ornately stenciled ceilings.
The Inn features 6 private rooms and a 3-room suite, all with luxurious private baths, extra-large soaking tubs, and antique furnishings and details. Sumptuous breakfasts prepared by the Chef-owner top off a relaxing stay here. Views of the canal and basin are seen from the porches and from many of the rooms. The town retains it’s 19th century charms, with modern-day shopping, excellent restaurants and entertainment and our Inn is in the center of it all. It’s a great get-away, and yet only an hour from Baltimore or Philadelphia, a launching pad to further explore the Chesapeake Bay, the Brandywine Valley, or the horse farms and natural beauty that abound.
Chesapeake City is a historic waterfront village on the Eastern shore of Maryland that grew up along the Chesapeake and Delaware canal – one of only two commercially vital sea-level canals in the United States, built in 1829 but still significantly important. Ocean-going cargo and passenger ships continue to pass daily through the canal, as silent as a whisper, providing unique entertainment for Inn guests, from the comfort of their rooms and the side porches.
