About the property

3+BDR/2 Bath Downtown Annapolis Gem!

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 of 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 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.

The home sleeps 9 comfortably with an additional plush queen inflatable for a any overflow! Main floor has 2 bedrooms each with queen beds and a shared full bath & walk-in shower. Upstairs is a king size bed, a double bed nestled in the nook with a second bathroom with tub/shower. Since the master suite is an open area, guests must feel comfortable bunking in the same room. Room divider also available. The 'egg couch' in the upstairs solarium is also a very comfortable single bed alternative if required. For your convenience, WIFI, HBO, off-street parking and free passes for on-street parking for 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 (dogs only) will be considered under special request for a nominal fee.

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).

What makes this house unique

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.

Beautiful Annapolis Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We just completed our third stay in this lovely home. Everything we needed for an extended get-away was provided. Plenty of towels, toiletries, and paper products. The kitchen is well equipped, including some pantry items like cooking oil, spices, coffee and some other canned/packaged items. The house is clean and well-maintained. There is off-street parking and a fenced-in backyard for privacy. The location is great - just an easy one-mile walk to the Annapolis city dock and Naval Academy, with plenty of restaurants and shops along the way. A small park is nearby with a walking trail, playground and large field for dogs to run around. We will definitely be back again!

Private and quiet, yet accessible

  • 5 of 5

My Grandfather and his wife met when he was at the US Naval Academy in the mid-1940's, so Annapolis has always been a special place for our family. We wanted a family weekend to visit my Grandfather, who is interred at the USNA Columbarium, before we all met for Thanksgiving. This was the perfect place. There was ample room for family gatherings and boisterous laughing but also plenty of quite areas of the home. Everything was extremely clean and well taken care of. The neighbors were extremely friendly and assured us, upon arrival that we would enjoy the house and to come see them if we needed anything. We will definitely be back in years to come! Thank you for opening your home to us.

Expectations exceeded...just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

As 1st-timers to VRBO, we were excited and a bit nervous as how this would go. We could not be happier. Communication with the owners was excellent...from the welcoming email, to the manual that detailed absolutely everything! The home is graced by quality throughout, you'll see thought in everything. You could start in the kitchen---fabulous stone work, excellent, top-quality appliances, and every possible kitchen aid you could possibly need. The bathrooms are top-shelf---spotless, up to date, beautifully done. Same with the bedrooms...everything is 5-Star hotel quality. Our only drawback was a rainy evening, otherwise the yard and porches offered an inviting way to relax and end our day, but there's always next time! The area is quiet, conveniently located, and easily accessible. All in all, this rental was just perfect in every way. Should you try this stay, you will not be disappointed.

Great Annapolis Getaway...!

  • 5 of 5

As I had visited the home before signing the contract, it was everything that I expected.

Clean - well organized - could not have gone better.

Instruction to get in - to "get out" were well organized and easy to follow.

Just terrific...
