Simply Marvelous!!

5 on May 22, 2017

I just came back from a lovely stay at The Flaghouse Inn. We went with a large group (7 individuals) and had the most wonderful time! The Inn itself is beautiful and inviting from its front porch decorated with hanging plants, flags and benches to people watch to its fabulous location that is with-in walking distance to everything we wished to see. And the Inn's Owners are simply wonderful! They were so accommodating, warm, helpful with tourist attractions and just a joy to speak to. Among the 7 of us, we stayed in three rooms. Each was more lovely than the next. We all just had a great time in Annapolis and a large part of that was our perfect stay at The Flaghouse!! If even in the area again, I would stay there again in a heartbeat!

Innkeeper Response
As you know, we so enjoyed meeting all of you when you were here for your long weekend getaway. What a wonderful family you have and all of you added so much joy to our lives.

Charming inn beautifully located!

5 on May 07, 2017

My husband and I received a gift for a stay at the Flag House Inn and we couldn't have been more pleased. Bill and Charlotte were wonderful hosts, very knowledgable and helpful as we planned our activities, and the breakfasts they provided were among the best we've ever had! Located so near the Naval Academy and the City Dock area, we parked our car on Friday and didn't need it until we left on Sunday. The Inn itself is charming and filled with historical pieces that Bill and Charlotte have thoughtfully collected over the years, each with a story to tell. Our room had everything we needed and was very comfortable. We will surely be planning and look forward to a return visit to The Flag House Inn!

Innkeeper Response
We are always so happy when a gift certificate recipient enjoys a stay here at Flag House as much as you did. Looking forward to seeing you again in the future.

Flag House Inn is a great place to stay. Charlotte and Bill were very friendly, hospitable and made us feel right at home. They were also very knowledgeable about Annapolis. Also, the breakfast we were served each morning was top notch. Annapolis is a great place to visit and staying here would only add to the experience.

Innkeeper Response
Glad you enjoyed your stay in Annapolis and that we were able to provide a breakfast each morning that not only nourished but that you also enjoyed.

Charming B & B

Accommodations were excellent. Having a place to park the car, in a secure place, allowed us to walk to all areas of interest. Enjoyed our stay and will probably return again.

Innkeeper Response
Free on site parking is a rarity in Annapolis and we are so pleased to be able to accommodate our guest cars here right on site.

Warm and Welcoming!

5 on March 18, 2017

My daughter and I went to Annapolis for a mother-daughter weekend and had a great stay at the Flag House Inn! Charlotte and Bill were most welcoming! Charlotte got us settled quickly and gave us all excellent suggestions for places to eat and enjoy! The room was lovely and the whole house was "warm". We had a great time and suggest staying here if you are in Annapolis. It is a GREAT location and you can walk everywhere!

Innkeeper Response
We, too, enjoyed meeting both of you. It is always our treat to host mother-daughter weekends. Our location allows you the ability to do lots of shopping and sightseeing together. Then return home for a respite in your room or by the fireplace in the sitting room before heading out for more time together. Thank goodness for the individual room temperature control units so you can adjust that warmth to your individual need. Hope to see you next time you are in the area.

A most welcoming Inn

A wonderful night's stay after a long drive. The owners could not have done more to make us feel at home and familiarize us with Annapolis - restaurants, etc.. The accommodations were very clean and comfortable and the morning's breakfast outstanding.

Innkeeper Response
We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us and your quick visit to Annapolis. If you pass this way again we would love to see you again and share more of our insights into the area with you.

Attractive house, great location

3.6 on November 29, 2016

We stayed one night whilst touring Chesapeake Bay Area. Wanted somewhere historical and quaint, close to everything, and this was it! Charlotte and Bill were great hosts and extremely helpful with directions and suggestions what to do. Only negative thing I could say was that there was no soap/shower gel provided in the bathroom.

Innkeeper Response
We provide bar hand and shower soaps but not gels in our B&B. They are put in by me with each turnover even before the housekeepers arrive to do the rooms. If, perchance, I have forgotten to put soap bars in they will let me know. We have chosen to use bars rather than gels for our guests. I am pleased that you enjoyed your stay in Annapolis and hope you will return if you visit the Chesapeake Bay area again.
