Over 100 years ago Chesapeake Beach, Maryland was a thriving vacation destination with visitors coming by steamship and railway to stay at the grand hotel, dine on local seafood dishes, gamble, play at the waterfront amusement park and stroll on the boardwalk. Today the Chesapeake Beach Resort & Spa embodies that same spirit of a complete waterfront getaway destination and has grown to become a premier destination location for both land lovers and boaters who want to have a quintessential Chesapeake Bay experience.

During the past 68 years the original Rod `N' Reel restaurant and marina have evolved to include a hotel and full service spa located right on the Chesapeake Bay, a second marina, two more waterfront restaurants, meeting rooms, waterfront ballrooms, beautiful bay views and beach front. The Resort is an ideal location for waterfront weddings, corporate events and retreats. Amusements today at the Resort are many with bingo, gaming, charter fishing and other water sports, special weekend packages for all ages and beach side musical entertainment. Famous for being the Charter Fishing Capital of Maryland since 1946, the Resort also boasts two full service marinas, The Rod `N' Reel Dock and Marina West.
