About Shawn and Anne Harmon
We love our 'new' home complete with all its quirks and complemented by a modern kitchen and updated baths while situated in the middle of historic Annapolis.
Shawn and Anne Harmon purchased this House in 2016
Why Shawn and Anne Harmon chose Historic District
The historic street front, graceful staircase, private brick walled garden and the quirky nook and cranny feeling of privacy throughout made us act irrationally and buy the place the same day it was listed---but with no regrets as it has grown on us to become almost a bucket list type home to us. We live here full time when otherwise not rented because it's our only home. Annapolis short term license REN 08-01298. ACCESSIBILITY: The downstairs 5th bedroom unit has a fine American Leather queen pull out leather sofa, kitchenette, full bath and full laundry. It has three entrances, from within the house on a very, very steep stairwell plus front street steps and by the rear patio and neighboring property to PG Street. The rear patio has easement to the street by wheelchair although there is an initial 6 inch curb hurdle. Although this area is considered to be the 5th bedroom, both our family and renters use it as the entertainment room as it is a convenient and cozy hang out place. Just fold up the sofa bed and watch a game, eat, drink and chill. Peace and Quiet Expectations: This is a row home with mostly brick walls. You may occasionally hear either neighbor likewise we ask you be neighborly.

Amazing Annapolis home
We loved staying in this gorgeous historic home. You cannot beat this location if attending an event at the US Naval Academy. The design of the house is superb - a gem of a restoration balancing the old and new.
The owners of this home make it very comfortable to stay here. The beds are excellent with wonderful linens, plentiful towels, and small kind gestures like greeting you with a welcome basket of goodies and a stocked fridge of drinks. We had plenty of room for a family and could have friends over for dinner in the private backyard. It has amazing air conditioning which is essential for summer in Annapolis and advanced features like Nest.
This house is deceptively large! But lots of stairs so stay here if you are fit. Also we left our big suitcase downstairs for fear of banging it into a wall and rather just carried our stuff upstairs to the master bedroom.
All in all a wonderful house. The owners are super responsive and we are grateful they allowed us to stay.
We arrived in Annapolis with our family for our daughter’s Commissioning week. The owners were very responsive and the house was beautiful. We arrived to a basket of house warming goodies and beautiful flowers on the table. The location was great for my 78 yr old Mom to come and go from the Yard easily with all the activities during the week. The beds were comfortable and the basement apartment was a great place for the kids to watch tv. The outdoor porch was a huge hit! It became the gathering place for after dinner discussions and late night story telling. The kitchen was well equipped and great espresso coffee maker. There are room air conditioners that helped make the house very comfortable despite a few muggy nights. A perfect blend of modern updates and historical charm. We absolutely loved the house and highly recommend! Worth every penny!
Tracy is the kindest and most considerate guest you can have. She took fantastic care of our home and left it in immaculate shape.
It’s really great to know she and her family enjoyed their wonderful Academy graduation event in our old home. It gives us a little extra special satisfaction to hear that her family enjoyed chilling on the outdoor porch and in the basement bedroom as we especially enjoy those areas of the home too.
She is the calmest VRBO guest and your place will be in great hands.

Absolutely delightful stay. Thank you for all you did to make us welcome!
We felt lucky to have this wonderful family host their special event here and they left the place immaculate.
Very charming, and lovely property! Plenty of spaces to congragate and space for privacy as well.
Very charming and beautiful home in a fantastic location. Easy access to USNA and Downtown points of interest. We had 5 adults for our stay and had plenty of room to entertain friends and visitors. Very versatile property that could easily host a couple of families for an Annapolis stay.
Owners were very accessible and went out of their way to provide for a welcome stay. Would gladly return again for a future visit and highly recommend this wonderful home if you are interested in a convenient and great VRBO experience!
What a great experience! Beautiful home!
I can't say enough about the home or the owners. We rented this home for commissioning week at the Naval Academy and couldn't have been happier! It was in perfect condition, and the owners had obviously put a lot of thought and care into making sure it was a great experience. The location was perfect- just a short walk from gate 3, and the home offered a combination of privacy and at the same time had room to host guests and family members with a beautiful back garden and an overlooking screened-in porch. The home and appliances were in perfect condition and very user-friendly. The rooms were great and offered plenty of privacy, even with multiple guests. Parking was available in front (passes furnished by our hosts) and while occasionally a minor challenge, we always found spaces close by with a minimum of effort. The owners were courteous and as helpful as could be in making sure this was an outstanding experience. In the past we have always stayed in hotels, but this was an excellent choice and we would do it again in a heartbeat!
