Historic District House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 7 & up to 9)

Pure Magic! You'll wake to the sound of church bells ringing from St. Mary's, ships horns as they depart from City Dock and horses hooves as they pull carriages through the charming historic streets of Annapolis.

This luxuriously decorated historic home was built in 1832 and has been fully renovated to bring out its original charm. Situated only one block from Main Street in downtown Annapolis, it is conveniently located to give you instant access to sightseeing, shopping, restaurants and bars, boat cruises, and Naval Academy activities. City Dock, at the bottom of the block, boasts commanding views of the Chesapeake, sail and motor boats of all sizes, and people watching galore! Its close proximity to St. Mary's, St. Anne's, First Presbyterian and the Naval Academy Chapel makes it ideal for wedding parties and guests.

The Maryland State Capital, Governors Mansion, Naval Academy and Navy-Marine Corp Stadium are all easily within walking distance...most within just five minutes. Baltimore (30 minutes) and Washington D.C. (45 minutes) also have a tremendous amount to offer during your time here - it's the perfect central location. METRO access (New Carrollton Station) is 20 minutes away and connects to AMTRAK as well.

Original heart-of-pine wood floors are located throughout the home, graced by many beautiful rugs. The fully renovated gourmet kitchen makes cooking and entertaining an absolute pleasure if you are so inclined, and don't forget to enjoy a glass of wine and perhaps a cigar as you sit by the fire-pit on the back patio. The local Farmers Market (at the bottom of the block) on Sundays will provide you with fresh, organic veggies, meats and breads from May through late-Nov. As winter approaches, cozy up in front of the wood-burning fireplace with a book from the fully stocked shelves located throughout the house. Enjoy Fall Festivals, Ghost Tours, Naval Academy football and of course, the world-famous Annapolis Boat Show. Entertaining is an absolute pleasure in this home - the multi-room high-quality sound system gives the house a warm, comfortable atmosphere year-round.

If your vacation includes work, settle down at the desk in the office/library. It has high-speed wireless internet for your personal computer. The office has an operational gas fireplace for added ambiance.

The home sleeps six comfortably in two queen beds and one full bed. The couch in the living room is also a very comfortable single bed alternative, and a queen-sized air mattress is available upon request.

Free passes are provided for on-street parking for one vehicle, and a covered parking ramp is easy walking distance for additional vehicles. If you have any special requirements or requests, I'll do my best to facilitate!

Both the home and Annapolis have something incredible to offer...all year long. This home is ideal for family gatherings, wedding parties, 'girls weekends', football season, Graduation, and sailing races! Use the link below to view upcoming events sponsored by the Historic Annapolis will help you take advantage of all the incredible events that Annapolis has to offer during your stay.

Please click on the calendar link on the right side of this page to check for availability during the next 1 year period. Feel free to inquire about events that are more than a year away too. I recommend that you to plan early...this house is always in high demand. Though if you're spontaneously planning a visit for this coming weekend, I welcome and encourage your adventurous spirit!! It's a no-brainer alternative to a hotel stay with all it has to offer.

I NEVER ask for payment via wire transfer. Any such request should be treated as fraud.

Beautiful and well kept

  • 5 of 5

This home was beautiful and perfect for our stay. It was much larger than it appears in the pictures and there was plenty of space for 6 adults to spread out. The location was great and very walkable. The owner was pleasant and responsive. 10/10 would book this again for my next stay in Annapolis.

Had a great weekend in this house - the location was perfect for downtown and wandering around Annapolis. Loved the historic feel of the home - especially in the kitchen! The house was clean, very comfortable, and the owner was extremely helpful and nice.

Great location. Very helpful owner

  • 5 of 5

Owner is very nice. And friendly. GREAT location for downtown area. Charming area. Parking can be a challenge but during vacation the nearby school is a boon.

We used 2 of the 3 bedrooms. The kitchen is the best part of the house. It is indeed authentic and historic.
