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. Washington DC's main train station is only an hour away on AMTRAK or MARC from the Aberdeen train station (3 miles from our home)
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!

Lovingly restored home.
Very impressive updates without detracting from the character of the original home. Steep, narrow stairway to lovely laundry room and bath with walk in shower plus main bath with large jacuzzi tub made showering a challenge for my arthritic knees, but that’s my issue and shouldn’t detract from this great home in a very desirable location. We were a bit chagrined to have so few tv channels available, but it forced us to talk to each other and play cards each evening. High speed internet worked flawlessly. All in all, a very enjoyable stay. I would highly recommend this property to adults with no infirmities.
Girls Weekend Getaway
My four college roommates and I rented The Armitage this past weekend for our 7th annual weekend getaway. We come from Virginia, Pennsylvania, West Virginia and New Jersey and chose Havre de Grace as a location that all of us could get to easily. The Armitage was a perfect place for all five of us to meet and relax for three days. Melania was a fantastic host. She answered all of my questions and emails so quickly and enthusiastically. Her home is beautiful and comfortable. Every one of us commented on how great the beds were and checking in and out could not have been any easier. Everything was spotless. We were able to walk easily to the downtown area and parking for four cars was absolutely no problem. Each of us would stay at The Armitage again in a heartbeat. The only suggestion I have is to put a table and chairs in the backyard because sitting out there at the end of the day as the sun sets is so pretty and relaxing. Thank you, Melania and Millie!
Great Restored Home in Harve de Grace
Great property to stay in - plenty of space yet very warm and cozy. The owner was very easy to work with and all house guidelines were explicit. The house is within walking distance to views of the water and to the shops on Washington St. It is great to have an lodging option like this in the area!
Excellent home away from home for family
We were there for Christmas. The home is nicer than you can tell from the photos.
It had everything we hoped for. It's a warm, comfortable home. The beds are great. The kitchen is big. It's three blocks from the delightful downtown area of Havre de Grace. The bedrooms are larger than they appear in the photos. One bedroom had a large, sunny porch off the room.
This house would be great for a family with young children. It also is great for a family with adult children coming together to visit for a few days. The house allows you to make it your home while you are there.
Beautiful, comfortable and nicely updated!
Honestly the most comfortable bed I’ve ever slept on in a rental! We’ve stayed in 20+ across the nation. Exactly as pictured and described, very accommodating owners and nice location.
beautiful spacious home in the perfect neighborhood
If you're looking for a great place to stay in HdG, this is it. It is within easy walking distance to absolutely everything - both "downtown" and the Promenade - and it is more spacious than the photos reveal. The porch was adorable and the living/dining rooms are open to one another, so it was great for the evening when my sisters and I were just hanging out. In addition, there is a lovely little sunroom off the master bedroom where I did yoga one morning. Just a lovely home to spend a weekend in!
