Beautiful, family-friendly 4-bedroom home in Annapolis.
Our beautifully-appointed home pays homage to the Colonial Period. It comfortably sleeps 9 adults in four bedrooms and can accommodate additional guests with an air mattress or kid mattresses. There are 2.5 baths. It boasts elegant dining and living rooms. Enjoy the quiet street and an easy stroll to downtown Annapolis.
The house has a large, well-stocked kitchen that is great for aspiring chefs and bakers. It's large enough to serve as a gathering place, too, while meals are prepared. We try to ensure the pantry has sundries and essentials. The dining room seats up to 8 to feast on the culinary pursuits undertaken in the kitchen. We can arrange for additional tables and seating if needed. The living room harks back to the bygone colonial days with relics and furnishings of that departed era. It has a piano, a stereo, jigsaw puzzles, and games. In the winter, the roaring fireplace crackles and quickly thaws any cold fingers and toes. The bedrooms are spacious, furnished with comfortable beds and new linens, and have flat-screen televisions. There is a Roku player in 3 of the bedrooms so you can stream and there is a DVD player in the fourth bedroom complete with a DVD collection. The kids' bedroom also a closet of toys and bookshelf full of children's book. There is a washer and dryer available for your use in the basement.
The house is centrally located so that you can go car-free for your stay and explore Annapolis on foot - unless, of course, you prefer the free Annapolis Circulator Trolley that stops at the end of the street or the water taxi that can whisk you away in unique style (during peak season only).
The owners grew up in Maryland's capital, so they can provide endless advice on where to go, what to do, and how best to enjoy America's sailing capital. You can easily walk to the charming brick-lined streets of historic downtown-- where you can stroll along City Dock, watch boaters strut their stuff on Ego Alley, take the kids to battle pirates on the Sea Gypsy, captain your own boat, rent a canoe or a kayak or a paddle board, go on a walking tour or a ghost tour, take a trolley or Segway tour, or dine waterfront.
Or maybe you want to see what it's like to be a midshipman. Visit the Naval Academy and take a tour.
Still looking for things to do? Maybe art and culture is your thing. There are 25 fine art galleries within walking distance of downtown. Additionally, galleries and museums offer classes and sponsor year-round musical and performing arts events. Want free fine art? Who doesn't?! The Elizabeth Myers Mitchell Gallery at St. John's College is the only accredited fine arts museum in the area and admission is zippo, nada, nothing.
Festivals and events abound in Annapolis. In-season sailboat races every Wednesday night...the First Sunday Arts Festival (free! and running through October) is an arts and craft show featuring 100 local and regional artists with live music, dance, street performers, food, and more... county fairs... seafood festivals... sail and powerboat shows... lights on the Bay... and this is to name just a few.
We'd love to host you and help you plan your stay.
Please note that higher prices apply for one-night rentals and event weekends, such as Commissioning week, boat shows, USNA Homecoming, Christmas, New Year's Eve, and similar. The calendar may not reflect higher prices during these weekends, so please do inquire. We also require a two-night minimum stay between May and October. Thanks.
Guests have access to the whole house.
We are accessible during guests' stays to answer questions and help when needed. We are local, too, so can come to the house if need be.
There must be at least two guest over the age of 25.
House is not available for Ring Dance.
We will consider well-behaved dogs - we charge a $100 pet fee because we need to shampoo the carpets after pets due to an owner allergy. There's no way to include the pet fee in the Airbnb Instant Pricing, so we send a modified invoice after you reserve if you are bringing a dog. We can also cancel w/o penalty to either side if you cannot agree to the fee.
The house is non-smoking. If there is evidence of smoking inside the house, we will retain part of your security deposit to deep clean the house.
