About

Featured on the NBC Today Show, in The Washington Post, Baltimore Magazine, Budget Travel and Chesapeake Life Magazine. 2012 winner of the Maryland Life Magazine Reader's Choice Award for Finest B & B on the Lower Eastern Shore. Come down in time to a place that celebrates books and writers. The Alexander House Booklovers Bed & Breakfast is a literary-themed Victorian home in the Princess Anne historic district; it features dramatic colors and whimsical details that create a feel-good, relaxed atmosphere. Immerse yourself in the jazzy Harlem Renaissance of The Langston Hughes Room; dream a high seas-adventure in The Robert Louis Stevenson Room; revel in the romance of Regency England in the grand Jane Austen Room, relax with a book in the Mark Twain Reading Parlor & Library. Partake of a gourmet breakfast, afternoon tea or evening liquour in the charmingly French Cafe Colette (for inn guests only). Enjoy a stroll through the relaxed historic town of Princess Anne, filled with lovingly preserved homes from the Colonial, Federal and Victorian eras. Between the Beach (wild ponies of Assateague or Ocean City) and the Chesapeake Bay, we are surrounded by lush rivers (canoeing and kayaking) and open savannahs. It's a wildlife and bird haven, a delight for nature lovers. Ask about our winter writers' retreats and girls getaway group rates. Bookloversbnbdotcom

So Relaxing!

5 on November 01, 2011

My husband and I stayed here for a 3-day weekend last year. The innkeeper was so friendly and helpful, the stay was so peaceful and relaxing. I was recuperating from an illness and found the literary theme and reading room so restful. We'll be staying there again.


Amazing and unique experience

The ambiance is wonderful, whimsical yet sophisticated. We loved our Jane Austen Room with all the little details that brought Jane to life. The Mark Twain Library has a great selection of books and a relaxing atmosphere. Elizabeth's breakfasts were marvelous, the crepes yummy! We also enjoyed the beautiful veranda, so private and colorful.


Really nice place

Elizabeth, My husband and I really enjoyed our recent stay at your B and B. The Jane Austen room was really nice and the town of Princess Anne is really quaint. Loved your porch and breakfast was super! Also super pizza at the Flying Crane.
