My wife and I celebrated our wedding anniversary in Annapolis and enjoyed staying at Flag House Inn as part of that little getaway. The inn itself is perfectly located in the historic district of town, directly across from the Naval Academy entrance and the harbor area. It made getting around by foot very easy and quick forsight-seeing, restaurants,and nightclubs. The innkeepers Charlotte and Bill obviously take great pride in keeping their lovely inn in tip-top shape while extending warm but not intrusive hospitality to their guests. We recommend the Flag House Inn to anyone seeking to immerse themselves in the charms of historic Annapolis.

My husband and I were in Annapolis to see our son who is attending the US Naval Academy and loved the convenience to both the academy and to walking downtown so easily. Also, the owners Charlotte and Bill are so friendly and full of great information about things to do in Annapolis and about the USNA. Charlotte also makes a delicious breakfast each morning and it was a pleasure meeting other guests. We felt very welcomed and comfortable in both our guest room and the common rooms of the B & B. They have lots of interesting books to read and Navy decor throughout the house to enjoy. It definitely felt like a home away from home and we highly recommend staying here!

My boyfriend and I spent a night here during memorial day weekend and couldn't have been happier with our experience. The location is excellent; close proximity to the Naval Academy pedestrian entrance was ideal, as was the short walk to the downtown area. We tried to fit a lot into a one-day visit, and having a room at the Flag House Inn helped us do that (if we needed to run back to grab sunscreen or change it only took 5-10 minutes out of our day). Our room was originally a two twin bed setup, but Charlotte and Bill pushed them together for us to make one king-sized--we couldn't even tell it was two separate beds! Charlotte makes a mean pumpkin bread, too. We would certainly recommend the Flag House Inn to anyone visiting Annapolis. You couldn't beat the location OR the free parking, and the hosts are very gracious and eager to share their knowledge of the area.

We stayed at Flag House Inn for my cousin's wedding at the Naval Academy. It was very quiet and beautiful. We especially enjoyed chatting with the owners who are very interesting people! The location absolutely can't be beat and best of all, they have parking there and it's very difficult to find parking in downtown Annapolis. It's easy to walk around the corner to all the best shopping and restaurants in downtown Annapolis. Best of all, you can walk back at night and rest on the front porch swing!

I definitely recommend Flag House Inn! My childhood friend and I went for a girls weekend! Our room was perfect with 2 twin beds and was very clean, the food was great, and Charlotte and Bill were wonderful hosts. The location was perfect just a few minute walk right into downtown Historic Annapolis where there are countless restaurants and shops. Charlotte was very helpful with suggestions of where to eat and shop. Bill carried our luggage up to the room and parked the car. He even hosed off our car before we left for home because of all the pollen that was on it. Just wonderful people and I would go back in a heartbeat!!

We were in Annapolis for our son's candidate visit at USNA. You could not have asked for a better location - directly across from the USNA entrance. The off road parking provided by the Inn was key for us and we were able to just walk everywhere. The room was spacious and very comfortable, the food was delicious, and the host/hostess were very helpful and friendly. In fact, we've already booked our stay to pick up our son from the USNA Summer Seminar in June. We hope to have many more visits to this lovely Inn and town.

Our room was such the pleasant surprise as it was even better than its photo! Bill and Charlotte have taken such care to create an ambiance so fitting to the lovely town of Annapolis. Charlotte prepared gluten-free foods so that I was never "on the outside looking in". Would definitely stay there again!

In town to visit the Naval Academy and the location was awesome. Very convenient to everything in the old town area and permitted a walking environment. The owners were very pleasant and gracious hosts. The building was full of character and I thoroughly enjoyed my stay.

We were made most welcome by Bill and Charlotte who were the perfect hosts. The room was extremely comfortable and Flag House Inn is perfectly situated to explore Annapolis. All the accessories are of good quality and there are many thoughtful features. Our only regret is that one night wasn't nearly long enough.
