We love working here! Perfect place for outdoor photos and the ballroom is stunning. Eddie and his staff are the best!
One of the finest venues in the Delaware/Maryland area for weddings and ceremonies. Very professional and accommodating to work with . Make sure to ask for Eddie Greer when booking your event. Please tell them Ted Bojarski - DJ Ted Rock highly recommended the Chesapeake Inn.
When you first walk into the ballroom at the Chesapeake Inn you will be overwhelmed by the beauty. However, that is just the beginning. The real beauty is behind the scenes. From the 1st conversation with either Eddie or Shannon you will quickly realize that your special day will become truly amazing simply by putting your trust & vision in their hands. My company has done well over 100+ weddings in their Ballroom and no matter the curve ball thrown, not once was their staff unprepared to knock it out of the park. It isn't just the Ballroom, It isn't just the the staff and it isn't just the food. It is the fact they they deliver on all three and more. You are in good hands with Eddie, Shannon and the entire team at THE CHESAPEAKE INN. D & J DJ Service Don Timlin - Owner
