Guestbook comments from the owner

We visited our son at the Naval Academy and chose the house for its location. It is a beautiful house, very tastefully decorated and comfortable. Owner was very easy to coordinate plans. Would recommend the house to anyone, especially if you want a location near the shops and restaurants of Annapolis and the USNA.

This location was perfect, we were a block away from The Naval Academy, Water Taxi, downtown restaurants.We enjoyed the porch in the am, which was the only porch on the Street! The décor was elegant, comfortable and clean.There were large 2 bedrooms on second floor and one large bedroom, with a window seat & love seat, on the third floor. The second and third floor had a bathroom.The house is cooled by window units on each floor, not central air.The third floor unit was not able to cool the bedroom sufficiently, the other two floors were fine. I want to note,we traveled during a period of extreme heat. The kitchen was small but high end and efficient but we ate all meals in the area restaurants. The crab cakes were amazing! The owner, Julie was accessible via cell phone and attentive. We enjoyed our visit and I hope to come back to this property again.

Perfect location to Academy made an incredible Parents' Weekend even better.

  • 5 of 5

You can't beat this location and convenience for enjoying Annapolis and specifically the USNA. It was a perfect place for us to host friends and most importantly our Plebe during town Liberty. It is beautifully decorated and well stocked and equipped. And literally around the corner from the heart of the city and the Yard!

We keep coming back!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this property before and keep coming back because of how comfortable, clean, and inviting it truly is. The owner takes great care in communicating well and providing special touches to this beautiful home. The proximity to USNA and all of the wonderful things happening around Annapolis makes it perfect. This home is unique with historical character and high end bedding & furnishings.

Commissiong Week at 147 Prince George Street, Annapolis - It was Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking to stay in a beautiful home that is conveniently located near the Naval Academy and downtown Annapolis, this is the place! We spent Commissioning Week 2016 in this beautiful home for our son's graduation from the Naval Academy. This home was perfect - it is beautiful and charming. It was clean and had everything we needed upon arrival. We received numerous compliments on the décor and how comfortable and nice the home was. We were steps from Gate 1 at the Academy, so it location made it very convenient for attending events during USNA's Commissioning Week. There was no need for us to get caught up in the driving and parking challenges of Annapolis and CW. We seldom had to use our car. You could even walk to the stadium for graduation from this location. The location was also great for accessing Downtown Annapolis, with all the great restaurants and shopping! The house was perfect for entertaining - the first floor has all the space you will need and both an amazing front porch and back patio. The back patio was lovely and had a comfortable daybed with lots of pillows (which was great to relax on after a long day). It had enough seating for guests who wanted to do so. The front porch was also a great relaxation and entertaining area. It's a wonderful spot for coffee/breakfast in the morning, drinks in the afternoon or just people watching. The three bedrooms had plenty of room and window air conditioners that allowed everyone to find their own comfort level (these were only needed for part of the week). The beds were very comfortable. The first floor has a kitchen equipped with everything you could possibly need and has a nice sized living and dining area. Julie (the owner) was great to work with! The reservation and follow up procedures were easy, as was the process for gaining access to the house. If you have elderly or disabled individuals with you, the stairs to the second and third floor could present a challenge in this house though. We had the opportunity to visit several other rentals for CW parties, but were really glad we choose the house we did. Being able to walk to events was a great advantage and this home's beauty, charm and location made it perfect! If I even need a rental in Annapolis again, this will be the place I will go!

We loved this home. (4 seasoned...that means over 55... adults in my group - 2 married and 2 single) It was all so very nice, well stocked, comfortable and charming, clean, beautifully furnished, and the best location. I would recommend this property to anyone that is not physically impaired (it is a three story structure). The three bedrooms (second and third floors) all have very comfortable mattresses with nice linens. They are good size rooms with seating areas. The house is cooled by window units which allows each person to set a temperature they like for sleeping. The kitchen and living room on the first floor have everything you could possibly need. We ate about half our meals here and Julie makes that easy with good equipment and tools supplied. We spent each morning on the porch enjoying coffee, news and visiting. The days were spent seeing Annapolis. Because this is such a perfect location we never got into our rental car until we wanted to venture to the outskirts of town. This is also important because parking in town is tricky. We found a spot on the street and with the parking passes provided with the rental were able to leave it throughout our stay. It is literally steps from Naval Academy and historic downtown. The evenings we were back on the front porch again with cocktails, long visits and enjoying the flowers, birds and people passing by. Julie makes the reservation process easy and is responsive to her guest needs. I saved it to my favorites as I plan to rent this one again when I come back to Annapolis! Safe Travels,

I guess I would rate the porch, location, sleebedding,

Car: not necessary

Whether you come for the history, the education, the water, or the hospitality, there is always something to enjoy in Annapolis. Experience the colonial capital city, known since its earliest days as the "Athens of America," where one could find a wealth of cultural activities, a glittering social season, gracious hospitality and intellectual stimulation. The small seaport brought visitors from around the world who shared the news of the day while enjoying the ambiance and tidewater cuisine.

You will find the same atmosphere today, drawing more than four million people a year to our shores. Annapolis has been welcoming visitors for more than 300 years.

For many, Annapolis is synonymous with the United States Naval Academy. However, this world famous institution isn't even the oldest college in town. That distinction belongs to St.. John's College, founded in 1696 as King William's School. It is the third oldest college in the United States, after Harvard and William and Mary.

The capital of Maryland was the capital of the United States when the Treaty of Paris, ending the Revolutionary War, was signed here. All four Maryland signers of the Declaration of Independence had impressive homes, still standing, in Annapolis.

Today, Annapolis is a very popular port of call for international sailors. Its anchorage features transoms from all over the world. In the fall, the largest in the water boat shows in the world are held on successive weekends for sail and power enthusiasts.

Take time to walk in our city and peer over the garden gates. Visit our many shops or relax on a water taxi in our harbor. Beneath our waters lie the hull of the Peggy Stewart, burned during a tax revolt, and the great yacht "America" of America's Cup fame. The same harbor where Kunte Kinte was sold into slavery is where the proud Selima, top class thoroughbred whose bloodline gave us Man O'War and other champions, disembarked. The working-class dock, where PT boats and mine sweepers for two world wars were built, now supports the technologies used by Olympic sailors who train here and consider Annapolis "America's Sailing Capital."
