We welcome you to our fabulous row house on one of the most coveted areas in all of the Historic District !You will be delighted by this one of a kind home located right in the heart of Downtown Annapolis.We have been a full time vacation rental since 2011 and have loved hosting hundreds of groups Of families and friends coming to visit the city that I'm proud to call my hometown. Built in 1845 and renovated thoughout in 2008 this home retains its original charm while having all of the luxuries of modern day living.One of the most photographed homes in town, it is located two blocks from the Main st , City dock , and Gate 1 of USNA .

Spend the day at the private park at the end of the street and watch the sailboats cruise by or walk to town for some sightseeing, shopping, a Navy game,sailing or one of the numerous award winning restaurants.You may even meet some famous people on your walk home-our house is right around the corner from TV personality Greta Van Susteren and across the creek from famous director Barry Levinson. Last summer baseball star Cal Ripken was spotted numerous times paddle boarding down at the park as he is also renting a house very nearby !

Located directly in the middle of all of the historic churches, this home is an ideal option for out of town wedding parties and guests. Once you compare hotel rates in town you will find that that renting a full house is a wonderful alternative-this is your chance be an Annapolitan !( Yes, that is a real term for a local :)

After a full day you and your party will be sure to enjoy your downtime when you arrive home. Original wide plank wood floors,a copper tin ceiling, reclaimed wood doors and butcher block counters are only some of the interesting period features you will admire.

About Megan

Im a retail business owner that grew up in downtown Annapolis- one street over from this house !Megan is a business owner and Jon a lo so Realtor-when not running out VRBOs we invest in real estate and enjoy distance running , riding bikes, surfing, swimming, paddleboarding and eating out at all of Naptowns great restaurants..

Megan purchased this house in 2007

Why Megan chose Historic District

This house is on my favorite street in the Historic district. I fell in love with it when I saw it, bought it and did some renovating so that now it retains its 1800s charm but updated enough for today's standards. This location with the full private backyard is so rare in the Historic District !

What makes this house unique

We are a full time VRBO and pride ourselves on being the most booked house downtown . We keep an awesome house for our guests for a great price !We even split our cleaning fee down the middle and offer free parking passes . Don't be fooled - downtown is not in Murray Hill, Eastport , Homewood or any of the other areas folks call downtown .... We are just two blocks from Main street yet two houses away from the private park at Actons Cove where you can jump on the water taxi and go to dinner across the water like a local .

Guestbook comments from the owner

Charming house great location !!

  • 5 of 5

Second stay at this property - this time for three weeks . We got two Navy games , sailboat show and rode the water taxi to dinner in Eastport no less than six times. We brought the car but only needed it about three times for trips to the grocery . We absolutely love Annapolis and Jon was responsive to all of our questions and even met us out for a glass of wine as we are thinking about moving here in the next few years !

Perfect location and lovely home

  • 5 of 5

Our stay took place for a Naval Academy reunion, and for this it was perfect. Truly, a walkable distance to the academy, and to town. It was well appointed and comfortable. We will definitely rent this again for our next visit.

Megan was responsive, efficient and very helpful-- easy to work with by phone or by text. Thank you for a wonderful time.

Extremely well decorated, comfortable and cozy!

  • 5 of 5

If you really want to get the full Annapolis experience, you must start by booking this house. It is a hop skip and jump to shops, bars and restaurants. The back yard is a great place to chill if you want to bring your dog. Or if you just want to get some steamed crabs and stay in. Parking passes are provided, so you don't take home the worst Annapolis souvenir ever, the parking ticket! Megan is a gracious host and provides you with all you need to know to make the most out of your vacation. Ill definitely be back

Charming home in historic Annapolis

  • 4 of 5

Stayed for a week with my husband and two teen children. Beds were comfortable and common rooms had plenty of seating. Kitchen was well stocked with cooking pans, appliances and extras making it easy to prepare some of our meals at home while we relaxed. The walk to the center of town was less than 5 minutes.

Charming Getaway Home

  • 4 of 5

Conveniently located to downtown Annapolis. Home is nicely decorated, kitchen had everything we needed to prepare meals (pans, dishes, etc.) and we found everything we needed to enjoy our stay! Quiet neighborhood with a nice park at the end of the street. Megan was available to answer questions and very accommodating. We definitely will stay in the home again!
