Murray Hill House Rental Photos and Description

3+BDR/2 Bath Downtown Annapolis Gem!

Absolutely Charming! Guests will feel right at home in this beautifully renovated 3+ bedroom/2 bath bungalow. Coastal cottage/Pottery Barn decor throughout; expansive gourmet kitchen facing a stunning backyard ideal for outdoor entertaining, crab feasts, morning coffee by the fountain or a glass a wine curled up by the fire pit at night. It's so tranquil its hard to believe you are only steps away from the heart of downtown!

Situated only three blocks off West Street in downtown Annapolis, this convenient location gives you instant access to sightseeing, shopping, restaurants and bars, boat cruises and Naval Academy activities. Enjoy the heated outdoor shower after a day of paddle boarding or kayaking on the Chesapeake. Spa Creek is only three blocks away giving you access to local water taxi service, or if you prefer, the city trolley which runs every 10 minutes at the end of the street. Its close proximity to St. Mary's, St. Anne's First Presbyterian, The Westin and the Naval Academy Chapel makes it ideal for wedding parties and guests.

The home sleeps 9 comfortably with an additional plush queen inflatable for a any overflow! Main floor has 2 bedrooms each with queen beds and a shared full bath & walk-in shower. Upstairs is a king size bed, a double bed nestled in the nook with a second bathroom with tub/shower. Since the master suite is an open area, guests must feel comfortable bunking in the same room. Room divider also available. The 'egg couch' in the upstairs solarium is also a very comfortable single bed alternative if required. For your convenience, WIFI, HBO, off-street parking and free passes for on-street parking for additional vehicles are all included with your stay. This home is ideal for family gatherings, girl's weekends, NAVY events, wedding parties/guests and/or couple's getaways.

Over the years this has been a pet friendly home and pets (dogs only) will be considered under special request for a nominal fee.

If you are visiting Annapolis for Commissioning Week, the Navy-Marine Corp Stadium is within walking distance. Many families in our community support midshipmen throughout their 4 years at the Academy and take part in Navy football in the Fall. Annapolis is also the perfect destination for the world famous Boat Show, Renaissance Festival or weekend getaways for city dwellers in Washington DC (35 minutes) and/or Baltimore (45 minutes).

Please click on the calendar link to check for availability. If your plans call for accommodations that are more than two years away, please feel free to contact me directly.

I will do my best to make your stay in Annapolis most comfortable. If you have questions about the area or need suggestions, let me know how I can assist. I guarantee you will want to make this home a repeat destination!

This home was selected for an episode of ABC's 'Sweet Retreats' and is a licensed rental property in the City of Annapolis.

What makes this house unique

I moved to Annapolis from Philadelphia almost 20 years ago. I was attracted to the quaintness of the town, the beauty of the Chesapeake and laid back lifestyle that made weekends feel like a constant vacation. My work life lends itself to frequent travel so it was important for me to create a home environment that was extremely peaceful and inviting. The entire second floor is the master bedroom suite, renovated to offer privacy and a feeling as if you were in a tree-house. Similarly, I wanted to bring the outdoor in with the inclusion of field stone throughout the kitchen and expansive windows/sliders giving easy access to the outdoors. Sitting in an Adirondack chair by the fountain is the perfect place to start your day. I've enjoyed creating this unique and beautiful space and hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Perfect for the family!

  • 5 of 5

Our short stay in Annapolis was made perfect by having this little retreat to call home. As a family we were able to reconnect with our Plebe in a relaxing setting with all the comforts of home--Plus we were close to USNA which allowed us to spend more time with family during parents weekend. We hope to have many more visits😄

Perfect for a Girls' Weekend Away!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The house was beautiful and well-maintained. The owner made sure everything was readily available for us to make ourselves at home right away. It was a perfect location in that it was just enough off the beaten path to be quiet and private, but also an easy walk to the main attractions of the area. We highly recommend this rental location!

Wonderful home - Great location!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I recently rented this beautiful and well appointed home. We were welcomed by the lovely outdoor porch, and it just got better from there. The inside of the home was warm and inviting, and we all felt very comfortable there throughtout our stay. The home was a great fit for our family, and we didn't want for anything. There was a wonderful outdoor space in the back of the home as well, which some of us ate breakfast outdoors. The convenience of walking to shops and restaurants was a definite plus for us. What a wonderful neighborhood/location.

I would highly recommend renting this property, and Sandy (the homeowner)was so pleasant and great to work with. We would definitely come back to this property if we are back in the Annapolis area.

absolutely perfect for myself and small family

  • 5 of 5

I can't rave enough about this completely charming, warm, cozy, accommodating, comfortable, safe, clean, convenient, quiet home and neighborhood! My beds at home now don't compare with the comfort here, sad to say.

The owner, property manager and neighbors were fantastic too. Our needs were instantly and graciously attended to and we felt completely at home for our entire 3 week stay.

I highly recommend this home!

A gem in downtown Annapolis

  • 5 of 5

Every aspect of the house is perfect -- beautiful inside and out. The bedrooms are comfortable and roomy and the master suite on the second floor is spectacular. The kitchen is equipped with everything one could want. There are numerous places to sit outside including one quiet, shaded space with a fountain. The front porch with swing is also very special.

The neighborhood is beautiful while very convenient to downtown Annapolis.

I have rented many homes over the years, but this one is on the top of my list.
