Our home has 14 rooms with seven bedrooms. There are nine (9) working fireplaces, a rear patio with shade garden, a lovely second floor deck overlooking the State House dome, and we are directly across from the beautiful and historic St. John’s College. There is a DVD and (free) book library, a bright front parlor with chess game table, a formal dining room with antique leaded glass, and high-speed wireless secured Internet. All suites have private bath, iPod docking station and flat screen TV, hair dryers, iron and ironing boards, and all the linens you will need. ALSO, ALL BEDROOM SUITES ARE VERY PRIVATE (NO CONNECTING WALLS). The kitchen has just been fully renovated and has everything a chef would need.
Our vision for our home was to preserve the original architectural beauty of its era- with large, bright and colorful rooms, while providing a full range of modern amenities, including sprinkler system and central heat and air with five zones.
We are three blocks from the Naval Academy to the East and 2 blocks from the State House to the West. Our home also sits just two blocks off of Church Circle, which is the logistical “heart” of the town’s historic district. In one direction off of the circle, there’s Main Street. With just one step down the slope of this cobblestone road, you’ll fall in love with this town. It’s because of the view that goes straight down the road to the Annapolis dock harbor, and out onto the Chesapeake Bay. So take your time, stroll Main Street and duck in and out of novelty and gift shops, restaurants, boutiques, art galleries, cafes, and more – it would take you hours to see it all.
On the other side of Church Circle, you’ve got West Street- home of the famed Rams Head Live, and other restaurants like Metropolitan, Level, Tsunami , Carpaccio’s and Luna Blu. While you’re there, stop by the Annapolis Convention and Visitors Bureau for a full list of things to do. We’ve been in Annapolis for 20+ years and active in the community, so we can also help you plan your visit to be a full and rewarding one!
Pat and I were married at one of the top 10 B&Bs in the country, and for our family, friends and guests, we continue to strive to achieve a level of perfection, and comfort to match the best there is.
Ed and Patricia Mullen purchased this house in 2003
Annapolis is a town with an extensive history and diverse activities, including all water sports (some say it is the sailing capital of America), great shopping, live entertainment and plays, and is the quintessential walking town. We are in the middle of the historic district yet in a quiet area near the Governor's mansion. This becomes a haven of comfort- just far enough away from the late night taverns' night noise. St. John's College across the street are also great neighbors- providing green space for strolling along College Creek.
Rooms are very well appointed, and very secluded from one another so there is a feeling of comfort and privacy. It is also a great home to have a private or catered gathering. You won't need a car- we are within easy walking distance to all attractions. There is also a free state parking garage on weekends just 1 block away.
We rented Royal Folly for Plebe Parent Weekend. It was perfect for us. We have a rather large family, and we all were able to sleep comfortably. The house was beautifully decorated and very well kept. The owners were very kind and easy to work with. The location was perfect as we could walk to anything worth seeing in Annapolis. I would not hesitate to recommend listing to anyone who asked me.
We were in Annapolis for the wedding of our daughter in the Chapel at the Naval Academy. There were events at the Chart House, McGarvey's and the Annapolis Waterfront Hotel and all were in walking distance or a very cheap and quick cab or Uber ride. Our group included 6 teenagers and three couples. Everyone loved being in the house. Far superior to being in a hotel room when you have time to kill. The teenagers expressed their appreciation for being able to hang out in comfort. Everything was clean and well maintained. There is plenty of hot water and modern appliances, ample tv's as well as decks and patios to enjoy. We would highly recommend this home for its convenience and comfort.
An appropriately named Inn – the Royal Treatment in a city full of fun! The Royal Folly is luxurious in every way. You’ll begin to enjoy the ambience as you enter via the covered porch into the roomy foyer (perfect for a receiving line). On the left is a huge dining room that seats at least ten very comfortably, twelve or fourteen if you are good friends! The Grand Salon to the right provides a cozy spot for reading or gaming. Every bedroom and bath is designed with both comfort and style in mind. All of the linens are sumptuous on beautiful beds with comfy bedding! No excuse for not getting a good night’s sleep here! The owners are gourmet chefs so the kitchen is fully equipped – and brand new! Annapolis has fabulous restaurants, amazing history, glorious gardens plus St. John’s College and the United States Naval Academy. There is always something happening. Come to Annapolis, and stay at the Royal Folly. Our family had a wonderful time. Sure you will too!
I would highly recommend this gorgeous home, perfectly located in Historic Annapolis!
The rooms were spacious and well appointed. The property, as a whole, was exceptionally well maintained. Owners, Pat & Ed were quick to respond and truly lovely people.
We rented this home for a USNA Reunion this past weekend. Pat and Ed are great to work with. They responded to our inquiry immediately and made us feel at home when we arrived. I've rented multiple homes in the downtown Annapolis area and can say without a doubt that this home is the best of the best. The location is perfect (you can walk to ANYTHING worth seeing in Annapolis from here), it has the rare commodity of off street parking and close-by free parking, and it has enough space for families/couples to have privacy from other guests. I would recommend this home to anyone looking to rent in Annapolis. Well worth the price. I would rent this home again.
We went to Annapolis for a wedding this past weekend and came across this beautiful house on VRBO during our search. The owners were very friendly and easy to work with. The house was in pristine shape when we arrived. We had 7 couples which allowed everyone to have their own bedroom. Everyone was very pleased with how spacious the house was and the number of bathrooms made it very easy for everyone to get ready for the wedding. The house also sits in a perfect location to walk to restaurants, boutiques, and coffee shops. It was very convenient to wake up and walk down to Dunkin Donuts and then venture over to the marina in the morning. For anything out of walking distance we used Uber without any issues of finding a ride. I highly recommend this rental for families and large groups of friends. It truly made our weekend and thankful to stay in this gorgeous house!
Extensive Historic influence in Annapolis.
Considered the sailing capital of America, there is a wealth of things to do in and around the water!
