Our recent stay at the Flag House Bed and Breakfast Inn was outstanding. Our hosts, Bill and Charlotte, are incredibly kind and hospitable folks which made our visit an exceptionally enjoyable experience. Parking is limited in Annapolis, so we were grateful that Flag House B&B offers free parking to their guest. Additionally, Flag House's location is optimal for visits to the Naval Academy and historic downtown Annapolis, all within walking distance. We don't mind stairs, so staying on the top floor wasn't a problem for us. There are no elevators, so others may choose to stay on a lower floor. The top floor offered a great view, and the road-side room was surprisingly quiet. Both rooms that we chose are opposite the hall from each other, making it very convenient for our family. We were in awe of the history just within the Flag House. Bottom line, Flag House Inn is an exceptionally clean, quiet, friendly, conveniently located, and superbly operated inn that we found far exceeded our value expectations. We look forward to staying there again!

We would like to take this opportunity to highly recommend the Flag House Inn in Annapolis, Maryland to anyone looking for upscale accommodations, adjacent to the Naval Academy, convenient to everything and hosted by a fun couple. Bill and Charlotte Schmickle have owned and operated the Inn for 14 years and obviously love what they do. We made reservations at the last minute but Charlotte accommodated us with a smile in her voice. When we arrived after dark and tired from driving for hours in a heavy rain storm, Bill and Charlotte greeted us graciously and Bill even parked our car for us. Charlotte showed us to our room, which we found comfortable, clean as a pin and tastefully decorated. Breakfast was a joy with new friends and animated conversation. Our weekend was short but enough to encourage us to put Annapolis and the Flag House Inn on our short list for a return visit.

Spending a weekend just before the Christmas holidays was a wonderful treat at the Inn. Our hosts were so friendly and their inn was more like a second home than a place to spend the weekend. The breakfasts each day were delicious and varied and they made every effort to make us feel at home. That together with the holiday midnight shopping night as well as the holiday lighted boat parade in the harbor, a few minutes walk from the inn, made the entire weekend a joy. Charlotte and Bill shared so much knowledge about the area and Bill's discussions at breakfast added so much to the conversation allowing all of the guests feel as if we had known everyone for a very long time, just as if we were seeing old friends again. Being right across the street from the entrance to the Naval Academy permitted us to take long walks enjoying the campus as well as the sites and sounds of the academy as well. The Flag House Inn is an exceptional place to spend a wonderful time together.

Absolutely perfect in every regard. Booking was a breeze, arrival smooth and incredibly welcoming. Bill helped carry our bags in and situated our vehicle, which we did not have to drive the entire time we were there. Charlotte showed us up to our rooms and gave us a tour of the home. Having our state flag flown during our stay was very special, we took many pictures on the adorable front porch where we enjoyed evening cocktails on the swing and chairs, watching midshipmen and other tourists stroll past. We were in town for our 25th USNA reunion, so the location was the total envy of all of our classmates. Our room was comfortable, well apportioned, with amazing view of the Naval Academy chapel. Charlotte and Bill were full of amazing stories about the area and the house itself, we just could not have had a better time. We were ready to make reservations for our 30th reunion, but they don't book THAT far out - ha!

Our stay at the Flag House Inn in Annapolis, MD was lovely. We stayed in the Commodore Room which was beautiful, well appointed and immaculate. Charlotte and Bill are gracious hosts who made us feel welcome in their exquisite home. Breakfast was a delight. The town is charming. We thoroughly enjoyed our walks around town and the amazing seafood in several restaurants recommended by the innkeepers. We would stay here again. - Two Marylanders from Montgomery County

Annapolis is a quaint city and has many options for B&B's. I selected the Flag House Inn based on it's price, location and description. I was not disappointed! The whole house was beautifully decorated and my room (Far East) exceeded my expectations in terms of size and comfort. One of the selling points is that the house has off-street parking and is conveniently located for walking to the historic points of interest and a variety of restaurants in the historic city center. While I originally booked a 3 night stay, I had to cancel the first night in order to attend a funeral; the hostess graciously agreed to modify my reservation without a cancellation fee or adjustment to the rate, which she probably could have insisted on. I appreciate this consideration and would not hesitate to recommend this Inn.

Looking for a wonderful place to stay with family or longtime friends in Annapolis, MD.? If so don't miss the Flag House Inn! Our 50th Reunion stay for five couples, all close friends since our entrance into the Naval Academy in 1960, couldn't have been better. Located just outside Gate one at the Academy. How great it was to park the car at the Inn and not have to take it out again for the duration of our three day stay. It is so centrally located you are within walking distance of all the Naval Academy and downtown Annapolis have to offer. The accommodations are superb, breakfasts wonderful and prices more reasonable than most in Annapolis. Highly recommended! We look forward to our next visit. Bill and Suzanne Dell

We sojourned in Annapolis for 3 days recently and stayed at the Flag House Inn. Once we parked our car, we walked everywhere as the Inn is very close to Historic Annapolis, the Naval Academy and dining/shopping locations! The Inn is very charming and quiet...the host and hostess are wonderfully helpful people with many suggestions for enjoying our time in Annapolis.

I was in Annapolis to visit my son at the Naval Academy. The Flag House is located right across from the Naval Academy, which was very convenient. Charlotte and Bill made us both feel right at home. We both enjoyed our delicious breakfasts, our comfortable room, and weekend together. I am looking forward to staying at the Flag House again in the future and would highly recommend it to others.
