Inn at Canal Square

43211 1 reviews

Located on the waterfront in historic and charming Lewes, Delaware, a harbor view room at the Inn at Canal Square was a charming Poshbrood getaway for mom, dad, and baby over Valentine’s Day weekend.  With only 22 rooms, the Inn is an intimate, Nantucket-style, coastal retreat with exceptional service.  The Inn is centrally located for in-town (i.e. via stroller) exploration, shopping, and dining.

The Inn is a welcome change to some of the bumper boat/go cart/circuslike towns on the Delaware shore.  Poshbrood enjoyed an arts show, explored the State Park, and even had an in-room, relaxing massage.  All accommodations are generously sized and most feature a balcony overlooking the Lewes Harbor.    The Inn is open year round and offers an extensive, European-Style, complimentary breakfast. Children under 5 years of age stay free at the Inn at Canal square, but they do not have organized child care.  If needed, they can organize a licensed babysitter upon request.  We found there are so many family-friendly activities that a sitter wasn’t actually necessary. 

Poshbrood especially likes these Inn at Canal Square amenities:

  • Proximity to beaches and Cape Henlopen State Park
  • European-Style Breakfast
  • Guest Fitness Center
  • Complimentary Overnight Guest Parking
  • WiFi
  • Limited pet accommodations
  • Hardcore non smoking policy – love that!
  • Cribs and rollaway beds

Tip:   Don’t miss The Wharf Restaurant, just over the drawbridge overlooking the canal.  It’s a great place to watch the boats all while enjoying fresh seafood, beer-battered anything and, of course, a beer.  Extensive kids menu.

The Inn At Canal Square 122 Market St., Lewes, DE 19958.  Room rates start as low as $105, midweek in low season.

Spent a lovely weneked with a group of friends (13) to attend Keeneland Races and what an incredible little Inn we found! The rooms were beautiful and each was unique in every way! Every amenity one could ask for to make the stay comfortable and relaxing!! Beautiful furnishings, Jacuzzi tub, comfy bed, fantastic food, and sincere hospitality! Everyone at Woodford Inn made each of us feel at home and with Addie's Restaurant, quaint bar, patio, and sitting room, we felt we were a part of the Inn and the family . Linda, you have a gem and cannot say enough about the Inn and everyone there that made this weneked amazing!I look forward to my next stay at this perfect little Inn with huge personality and warmth!
