Flag House across the street from the Naval Academy was exactly what I wanted. The parking on the property allowed me two days without using my car to walk the entire historic area and enjoy it easily. I've staued in many B & B s all my life but this one exceeded my expectations and I'm quite selective. Terrific value to see Annapolis easily I think
My husband and I stayed at the Black Walnut Point Inn for our anniversary, and I'm already thinking of making it an annual tradition. The place was beautiful, Bob and Tracy couldn't have been nicer or more welcoming, the food was excellent (and I am a big breakfast person), and the grounds were beautiful. We had a great time watching the birds, exploring the nature trail, and just sitting by the water with a good book. Definitely book an in-room massage with the Body Aware clinic as well. You won't regret it!
Stayed 3 nights for navy reunion/anniversary. Bill and Charlotte are fantastic. Great breakfast. Great room (Commodore Suite) in excellent condition (as was everything else). Parking on site - this is huge in Annapolis! Across the street is the main pedestrian entrance to the Naval Academy. Great front porch to watch the Middies go by. Everything worth doing and seeing in Annapolis is within EASY walking distance. Park the car and forget it. Bill and Charlotte know all the good places to see and eat at. Their recommendations were spot on. Annapolis is a great town. Enjoy!
My wife and I spent a really lovely and romantic weekend here recently. It was perfect. The accommodations were first class. The food was excellent. The staff was friendly and very helpful and the location was amazing. So convenient to everything in Annapolis. I highly recommend Gibson's Lodgings for anyone that is visiting Annapolis.
I treated myself to a night in the Equestrian Room and it was absolutely delightful. The bed was extremely comfortable, the whirlpool bathtub was incredibly relaxing and the breakfast and specially ordered chocolate-covered strawberries were delicious. Additionally, the service was great with the front desk staff showing me the way to my room and offering dinner/tour suggestions.
We had rented this B&B for a wedding and also a sister vacation. There were 8 sisters, but one couldn't make it because of health reasons. Ages ranged for 65 t0 86. Tiffany and her husband were the greatest hosts we had ever met. So accommodating to our needs. Breakfast was fantastic. The home was fabulous located directly on the river with awesome views. The rooms were exceptionally nice and with views. Common areas were spacious. Atmosphere relaxing. Hosts were so accommodating that on our last night as we were relaxing in the living room, Tiffany came in with some cookies that she had just baked. We would all highly recommend the B&B. Thanks Perfect Hosts!!!
We had a wonderful romantic Valentine's Day weekend at the Laurel Grove Inn! Tiffany & Tom were great hosts; and made us feel very welcome & comfortable in their home. Thank you for the memories!
I've been here twice now and everyone I bring loves it! It feels like you're staying with a relative rather than in a stranger's bed and breakfast. The beautiful view can't be beat. It's very relaxing and quiet. I would definitely recommend this place to a friend!
The rooms as well as the view are absolutely lovely. The owner has taken the time to think about all the little details. Everything was spotless. The kitchen and snacks as well as drinks were readily available. Breakfast was wonderful. My husband needs low carbs and low sugar due to being diabetic and there were plenty of choices. The resident pets are also comical. Tiffany is charming.
Twice we have gone to Annapolis specifically to stay at Laurel Grove and are talking about a 3rd visit. The Arundal Suite is large, beautifully decorated, 2 large bathrooms, designer robes, etc. Tiffany and Tom are so warm and friendly. She is a fabulous cook. You can't wait for breakfast! Our only regret is that we didn't hear about Laurel Grove sooner!
This is the second time my wife and I have stayed at the Scotlaur Inn. Perfect spot to experience the heart of Annapolis. Walking distance to everything - park the car and walk. The owners and staff are outstanding and go out of their way to make your stay perfect. Having the famous Chic & Ruth's down stars with complimentary breakfast is a bonus. Highly recommend. Will stay again in the future. Bill & Faith Williston, USNA '83
I've rented the entire Inn for a business meeting in the past. My last visit was social. On both occasions they did not disappoint. Our room was beautiful. The staff was extremely friendly and present enough to know you were well taken care of without being intrusive. There willingness to shuttle to locale sites, including Hopkins hospital makes it far more pleasant and less expensive option than any local hotel
It surpassed all expectations and we studied the website and reviews prior to coming so we had some high expectations already! We will return here many many more times in the near future and for the rest of our lives.
Have stayed in many B&Bs over the years. Flag House rates among the very best. From the well appointed rooms with private baths and delicious breakfasts to the friendliness and helpfulness of Charlotte and Bill, you can't do any better. Ideal location for walking visits to Naval Academy as well as Annapolis itself. I highly recommend Flag House Inn.
We recently stayed at the Flag House Inn for a four night stay in the Fleet Suite. The Inn is beautiful, centrally located in Annapolis, the breakfasts are delicious, and the hosts, Bill & Charlotte Schmickle, couldn't be more gracious, helpful and friendly. We had a fantastic time and would definitely recommend the Flag House Inn to anyone who is looking for a place to stay in Annapolis!
The place was beautiful, rooms were so classy,We had 7 rooms booked there as my daughter got married on there courtyard so I got to see all the rooms, the staff, especially Stashia was our coordinator and I can't say enough wonderful things about her. The breakfast was simply wonderful they put us all in the main dining room the morning after the wedding. Highly recommend we will be back again to stay here!
We were coming up from VA for a show at the Baltimore Soundstage and decided to make a little weekend of it by staying at the Inn. We are so glad we did- the rooms were better than most resorts- clean and beautifully decorated! Staff were friendly and accommodating. We will be back!
My husband is not too keen on B&B so I only booked one night for our anniversary weekend as a compromise. OMG, we were both blown away by the peaceful and bucolic surroundings. We love it and can't stop telling our friends and family about it. We already booked our next stay. It is the best prescription for our stressful and hectic lifestyle. Thanks Bob and Tracy!
My wife and I spent a long weekend here. The inn was very nice. The staff was friendly and helpful. I will stay here again if I ever get back to Baltimore. The location is simply perfect. We parked the car on Friday afternoon & did not need to touch it until Monday morning. We walked to little Italy every night for dinner. Must be 40 restaurants in a six block area. On Friday night they were showing "Gone with the wind" on the side of a building in a parking lot across the street from a very fine Italian bakery. Each day we walked a couple of the blocks to the inner harbor. Visited the aquarium there. Ate crabs on a wharf. Toured the USS Constellation. Took water taxis to fells point. Went and listened to live music at the Power Plant Live.
I had my wedding at the attached venue. The staff was amazing and so accommodating. They did everything things they could to make sure my day was perfect. Myself and several guest stayed the night and the rooms were beautiful.
Un pezzo di storia degli Stati Uniti risiede senza ombra di dubbi in una piccola cittadina a sud-est di Baltimora, il cui Campidoglio ha ospitato personalità del calibro di George Washington nella ratificazione del Trattato di Parigi: Annapolis è la capitale dello stato del Maryland e conta poco più di 36.000 abitanti, fu fondata da alcuni puritani esiliati dalla Virginia guidati da William Stone, che si rifugiarono sulla sponda meridionale del fiume Severn.
Fu nel 1694, quando Sir Francis Nicholson spostò la capitale della colonia reale che la città inizialmente battezzata Providence assunse il nome definitivo di Annapolis, in onore della Principessa Anna che sarebbe poi diventata regina di Gran Bretagna. Città ricca e votata alla cultura, come testimonia la fondazione del settimanale Maryland Gazette, Annapolis assunse temporaneamente il ruolo di capitale degli Stati Uniti fino alla definitiva Costituzione del 1787, e presenta il più antico edifici governativo degli Stati Uniti: il Maryland State House, prima tappa "obbligata" del tour cittadino, che è tutt'ora caratterizzato da una imponente cupola in legno, la più grande della nazione, che ispirò poi l'architetto Pierre L'Enfant nella creazione del Campidoglio di Washington.
Il centro storico di Annapolis è rimasto sostanzialmente immutato e associa strutture governative storiche come l'Old Treasury a complessi più moderni come la U.S. Naval Academy, da cui viene formato il corpo dei Marine. Non mancano poi monumenti che celebrano le cinque personalità più importanti della storia cittadina, fra cui il presidente della Corte Suprema Roger Taney e il generale nella Guerra d'Indipendenza, Johann deKalb, così come luoghi di culto (come la chiesa di Mount Moriah), di interesse (il Banneker-Douglas Museum) e vere meraviglie della natura (il famoso Liberty Tree, pioppo che vanta ben 400 anni di vita).
Lungo il porto di Annapolis o nelle stradine del centro storico, numerosi ristoranti e locali di diverso stampo accontenteranno anche i palati più esigenti: si passa infatti da diverse specialità di pizza a più succulenti hamburger e carni al barbecue, senza dimenticare specialità orientali come il sushi e numerose tradizioni culinarie (dalla italiana alla thailandese, passando per messicana e cinese, davvero per tutti i gusti).
Patria del gelato e dei cupcake, Annapolis è caratterizzata da un clima temperato diverso rispetto ad altri stati del Maryland, con un periodo estivo piuttosto lungo e caratterizzato da alte temperature e forte umidità, mentre l'inverno è piuttosto breve, moderatamente freddo e raramente minato da agenti atmosferici come piogge o neve.
