Annapolis house description

Absolutely Charming! Guests will feel right at home in this beautifully renovated 3 bedroom/2 bath bungalow. Coastal cottage/Pottery Barn decor throughout; expansive gourmet kitchen facing a stunning backyard ideal for outdoor entertaining, crab feasts, morning coffee by the fountain or a glass a wine curled up by the fire pit at night. It's so tranquil its hard to believe you are only steps away from the heart of downtown!

Situated only three blocks off West Street in downtown Annapolis, this convenient location gives you instant access to sightseeing, shopping, restaurants and bars, boat cruises and Naval Academy activities. Enjoy the heated outdoor shower after a day of paddle boarding or kayaking on the Chesapeake. Spa Creek is only three blocks away giving you access to local water taxi service, or if you prefer, the free city trolley which runs. every 10 minutes at the end of the street. Its close proximity to St. Mary's, St. Anne's First Presbyterian, The Westin and the Naval Academy Chapel makes it ideal for wedding parties and guests.

If you are visiting Annapolis for Commissioning Week, the Navy-Marine Corp Stadium is within walking distance. Many families in our community support midshipmen throughout their 4 years at the Academy and take part in Navy football in the Fall. Annapolis is also the perfect destination for the world famous Boat Show, Renaissance Festival or weekend getaways for city dwellers in Washington DC (35 minutes) and/or Baltimore (45 minutes).

The home sleeps six comfortably in three queen beds. A fourth double bed is located in a nook off the master suite to easily expand accommodations to eight however guests must feel comfortable bunking in the same room. The 'egg couch' in the living room is also a very comfortable single bed alternative for a maximum occupancy of 9 guests. For your convenience, wireless high-speed internet, HBO, off-street parking and free passes for on-street parking for up to 2 additional vehicles are all included with your stay. This home is ideal for family gatherings, girl's weekends, NAVY events, wedding parties/guests and/or couple's getaways.

Over the years this has been a pet friendly home and pets will be considered under special request for a nominal fee.

                        We had a great time celebrating my 85th birthday with most of my children and grandchildren. The house is very neat and clean and well-appointed. It lacked nothing we desired. The recent modifications (e.g. stonework on the den/breakfast bar, wrap around windows, and remodeled kitchen) are very attractive. We also enjoyed the location, about a mile from the city dock and a great way to get our exercise, walking the main street to any of a number of restaurants and shops.

                        This place was wonderful and provided all the necessary items for a great weekend. My boyfriend and I rented this house as a place for our parents to meet for the first time. With three separate bedrooms the house provided a very comfortable and welcoming atmosphere for our weekend. The house was within walking distance of downtown Annapolis. Our two dogs loved the the house and backyard. Most of the stores downtown welcomed dogs and provided a great place to spend an afternoon walking around such a historic city with our furry friends in tow. With a kitchen stocked with cooking appliances, two bathrooms, 4 beds, a porch swing and much more the house was a great rental for 6 people offering a vacation much comfier than random hotel rooms.

                        Our family enjoyed this beautiful home over the Christmas holiday. With two parents, three young adult children plus a girlfriend of one of the children; it had plenty of room for everyone. This is a vacation rental that truly feels like a home. We particularly enjoyed the beautiful residential neighborhood and the easy walking distance to restaurants and other businesses. The beds were divine and the kitchen was very well equipped for cooking our Christmas dinner. The owner is extremely attentive to every detail. Highly recommended!

                        We arrived late on Thursday night to an adorable, comfortable and warm home. This rental was even better than expected. We awoke the next morning to be surrounding by the most beautiful fall color trees everywhere. The home was in the perfect location and had everything we needed to make it the most enjoyable weekend visiting our son who was playing water polo at the Naval Academy. Thanks again to Sandy the owner for making it so easy and comfortable!!!

                        This house was awesome! We won't ever stay in a hotel again in Annapolis. We were walking distance to everything. We loved going out on West st and walking back to enjoy the back patio fire pit. The owner was a pleasure to deal with as well.

                        Your home is beautiful! Four moms on the loose for the weekend in Annapolis...what an amazing trip! We had so much fun! We would love to come back (and stay again) sometime (maybe this time with our hubbies as well!) We were able to enjoy the area on bikes, which allowed us to see SO much more than we would have on foot. Given how large and welcoming and comfortable your home is, we were not compelled to take every meal out like we normally do when we stay the weekend in hotels. We explored during the day and enjoyed just sitting around, eating snacks and drinking wine both nights. We managed to eat far too much for brunch (and drink some delicious Bloody Mary's) out and about both days. A fun time was had by all. Thanks so much for accommodating us.

                        Our visit was wonderful. Access to the house was easy. Parking was more than abundant. Kitchen well stocked for a family of cooks. Fridge clean and ready for our food. Bedrooms clean with storage space - although the upstairs doesn't have "drawers" per se, rather a cabinet of shelves in the closet off the bathroom. Good to note that the upstairs is a loft without a private door, but that worked well for our 3 boys upstairs, daughter in a bedroom and the other private room for ourselves. Bathrooms were also well stocked (soap & shower gel to get you through to the store in case you forgot your own) and very clean. The backyard is to die for. Grill, fire pit, plenty of table/chair space. We would absolutely stay there again.

                        Our stay was perfect in every way. The home owner was fine with early check-in, dealt quickly with an issue we were having with opening the back door and was generally helpful and informative about her home and the area. Sandy, your recommendation of Carrol's Creek Cafe was an excellent one...we loved it. The beds are sheer heaven, the house is so comfortable and cozy and it's a perfect location for anything related to USNA (we were attending 2/C Parents' Weekend). Our mid son loved the "egg bed" in the living room and our whole party (his god parents from Canada, our daughter and her boyfriend and myself) all felt so at home. Our biggest regret was that with all the activities planned for the weekend we didn't get to spend as much down time in the house as we'd have liked. We've stayed in VRBO properties before and this is by far the nicest place we've ever rented. Absolutely no complaints...highly recommend this home. We all hated to leave. Sandy, thanks so much...we hope to return some day.

                        We loved this great house! It's beautiful, conveniently located, well-maintained, and spacious. Owner Sandy was extremely quick to respond, and very flexible and helpful in all regards. The only downside is that there is no door to provide privacy for the upstairs master suite, and no separation between the two beds upstairs (the second bed is in an alcove which helps, though). Everything else was awesome, right down to bikes and a kayak available for the renters! I especially loved the front porch, the comfy living space, and the stone finishes in the kitchen.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      I moved to Annapolis from Philadelphia almost 20 years ago. I was attracted to the quaintness of the town, the beauty of the Chesapeake and laid back lifestyle that made weekends feel like a constant vacation. My work life lends itself to frequent travel so it was important for me to create a home environment that was extremely peaceful and inviting. The entire second floor is the master bedroom suite, renovated to offer privacy and a feeling as if you were in a tree-house. Similarly, I wanted to bring the outdoor in with the inclusion of field stone throughout the kitchen and expansive windows/sliders giving easy access to the outdoors. Sitting in an Adirondack chair by the fountain is the perfect place to start your day. I've enjoyed creating this unique and beautiful space and hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
