History and elegance in this fabulous America town, recently voted number 12 out of The 20 Best Small Towns to Visit in 2014, by the Smithsonian Magazine. Visiting Havre de Grace while staying in The Armitage HdG Guest House will give you and your family an unforgettable American experience. She is the America the world should see; shaded sidewalks on tree lined streets, beautifully restored classic homes, parades on the main street and a caring and active community and churches where everyone knows everyone else. And there's more! You may not have known this interesting fact, Havre de Grace tied in a vote with Washington DC to become the nation's Capitol. However, Washington DC's classical train station, on the same route as Vice President Joe Bidon's commute, is an hour away.

There's plenty more to know about the history of this incredible little town!

Downtown charm and plenty to do: The Armitage HdG has been honored with the 2009 residential preservation award by the Havre de Grace Historic Preservation Commission, and is situated in historic Havre de Grace; located just 2 blocks from the heart of downtown art galleries, cafés, restaurants, antique shops, book stores.

Only a stone's throw from the Susquehanna River, at the top of the Chesapeake bay where you'll find the Promenade boardwalk, the oldest lighthouse in Maryland, the yacht harbor, and museums. Boat and Kayak tours, biking and hiking. There's more to do than restaurants and shopping!

Fantastic location and on the NYC/DC Amtrak line: The Armitage HdG in Havre de Grace is a 90 minutes car drive to DuPont Circle in Washington DC or, if you prefer Amtrak, a 10 minute drive to the Aberdeen station servicing NYC Penn station, Washington DC, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Wilmington.

Lasting Memories

  • 4 of 5
We will remember this house for the rest of our days. It was the perfect setting for our large family who came in from all over the world to attend a family wedding at St. Patrick's Church. The home was an international hit. The location, porch, kitchen and proximity to shore were more than we hoped for. Thank you Melania for the welcome bottle of wine. A wonderful touch!

Lovely accommodations and terrific location!

  • 5 of 5
This is a beautiful home. My entire family was in love with it – the older style house reminded my Dad of his childhood home.

The beds were beyond comfortable (the only down fall was far too many naps were taken – ha-ha)!! The kitchen was fully stocked and the dining room was perfect (enough seating for 8)!

The porch was nice and the neighbors friendly. Parking was easy (street or driveway).

Part of the charm of this home was definitely the location. The home is very close to the little downtown area (short walk). We did quite a bit of damage in the shops. One of our favorites was Doodads (free trade store). The Tidewater Grille was excellent, it was nice to be close to the bay. We also visited and liked Prices and we LOVED Lauraapin.

We have family in Havre de Grace and will certainly be back. I will also be recommening this rental to our other family members that visit this adorable little town!

What a gem!

  • 5 of 5
What a gem! This house is very well maintained and located in such an accessible but quiet town! We spent 11 days here over Thanksgiving 2013. We found the home very comfortable and family oriented. It was great to be able to walk into town and shop at all the locally owned businesses! This home is flawless, we will definitely be returning. I also appreciated the professional way the home was managed. Very easy to do business with.

No need for a car!

  • 4 of 5
I was part of a group of 6 college girlfriends meeting up for a girls weekend in Havre De Grace. We picked the location to be equidistant for most of us (travelled from DC, Baltimore, Philly, Lancaster) and the house was very easy to find. It was very clean with beautiful architecture. The location was perfect to walk to downtown and the bay side of town. There is a 7-eleven within walking distance, but not a grocery store. We were well supplied with nice wine from the wine bistro and take out food from many of the excellent restaurants. The house slept 6 comfortably (with some sharing beds), but if more privacy is desired, bring an inflatable bed and bedding for the spare room (which is a home office).

The downtown is a bit sleepy, but we weren't looking to go out dancing or clubbing!

September at the Armitage HdG in Havre de Grace MD

  • 5 of 5
The Armitage HdG is lovely restored home with great amenities. Having visited in September, the large covered front porch was especailly enjoyable for morning coffee or afternoon glass of wine. The description of the rooms was right on but did not do justice to the comfort of the beds. The home was entirely ready for arival with lights, ceiling fans and air conditioning on to greet us. The kitchen was well equipped and pleasant to use. Off street parking for two vehicles was welcome although on street parking was easy and available. The house was a few blocks from the downtown area which had enjoyable shops. Havre de Grace had a couple of lovely museums (HDG Maritime Museum and HDG Decoy Museum) that were superb. We had dinner at both The Bayou Restaurant and MacGregor's Restaurant and Tavern in HDG. We enjoyed seafood at both establishments. The Town of Havre de Grace itself was charming and served as a great base for day trips to Philadelphia to Washington and points between. The visit was for far flung family from Connecticut, Iowa and Wisconsin to get together and enjoy time together and to enjoy the area.

Lovely and comfortable home! Could not have asked for anything more while in town to watch our children play baseball at Cal Ripken. If in the area make sure to eat at Price's and go parasailing at Old Town on the River.
