We welcome you to our fabulous row house on one of the most coveted areas in all of the Historic District !You will be delighted by this one of a kind home located right in the heart of the Annapolis Historic District. Built in 1845 and renovated thoughout in 2008 this home retains its original charm while having all of the luxuries of modern day living.One of the most photographed homes in town, it is located two blocks from the Main st , City dock , and Gate 1 of USNA . Charles is an exclusive, quiet, one way residential only street. Recently chosen as the location for filming of a special for The History Channel ( May 2012) we have also been chosen as one of the select Capital Newspapers 'Homes of the Week' (Oct 8, 2011) as well as one of the exclusive properties for The Historic Foundations ' Candlelight Tour ' Our home has a great location without all of the noise from traffic or the late night bar scene yet you and your guests can absolutely walk to everything you want or need from this property. Spend the day at the private park at the end of the street and watch the sailboats cruise by or walk to town for some sightseeing, shopping, a Navy game,sailing or one of the numerous award winning restaurants.You may even meet some famous people on your walk home-our house is right around the corner from TV personality Greta Van Susteren and across the creek from director Barry Levinson!

Located directly in the middle of all of the historic churches, this home is an ideal option for out of town wedding parties and guests. Once you compare hotel rates in town you will find that that renting a full house is a wonderful alternative-this is your chance be an Annapolitan !( Yes, that is a real term for a local :)

After a full day you and your party will be sure to enjoy your downtime when you arrive home. Original wide plank wood floors,a copper tin ceiling, reclaimed wood doors and butcher block counters are only some of the interesting period features you will admire. Decorated by a local art dealer and gallery owner this home contains many unsual, one of a kind pieces by artists you will most likely recognize. The custom made dining room table is large enough to accomodate all of the house guests or you may choose to grill outside on the very private patio. Relax after dinner by the candlelight of the laterns at our handmade teak table and adirondack chairs- if your lucky maybe the neighboorhood ducks will swing by for a visit.

The first floor master suite has a queen bed while the two upstairs guest bedrooms contain a king and two extra long twin beds with totally empty closet space and drawers. As we are a year round rental you will not be inconvienced by having to squeeze your luggage and things among owners jeans, toys and old prom dresses :) A queen air matress is available by request if you have others joining your party.

Why Megan chose Annapolis

This house is on my favorite street in the Historic district. I fell in love with it when I saw it, bought it and did some renovating so that now its perfect.

What makes this house unique

The private park at the end of Charles is so relaxing, its the only private park in all of downtown.

Guestbook comments from the owner


Thanks so much for renting your home to me and my aides for the legislature season- I know you normally don't rent out for such long periods . The location downtown could not be beat and I really appreciate your special touches to make us all feel at home- Unfortunately now my wife want to hire you to decorate our place- we love your style. We would love to go ahead and reserve it again for the next two sessions if you will have us again! Thanks for everything- Delegate Glenn Glass

Cutest VRBO house ever! Loved everything about this house, inside and out. Three childhood friends and I met up for a three night weekend. We are all Maryland girls, although two of us do not live in MD anymore. Annapolis was the perfect meeting spot, and your house was the perfect house for meeting up after at least ten years of not having the four of us together. We loved the back patio. Had cocktails, morning coffee and many great talks out there, as we did in the living room and dining room. The last night we chose to stay in and cook. The house had everything we needed and looked for all weekend. The location to downtown was perfect. We walked to shop, eat, go to happy hour and to meet the water taxi.

Perfect Girls Weekend in Annapolis

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Megan and Jon's house! The house is lovely inside -- all the rooms are decorated so nice, very clean, and it was stocked with everything we needed. The backyard patio was so nice to have and we spent lots of time out there too. The location of the house was perfect! From Friday to Monday we never moved our cars because everywhere we wanted to go was within walking distance. Would definitely stay here again and I highly recommend!

Great House, Location, and Owner

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in your home. The house has all of the bells and whistles, is very clean, and the location was great as we could walk to every part of Annapolis. Megan was extremely helpful, kind, and generous with her advice. It was a pleasure to stay in this home.

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

This home was the best home rental vacation experience I've ever had! Of course as promised, the location was terrific and convenient for walking to the historic downtown Annapolis area. There were many interesting shops and wonderful restaurants. We were able to park the car right in front of the house and didn't get in it until we left. To cross the harbor, the water taxi picked us up just a few doors down at the end of the block in a beautiful park.

The inside of the home was as perfect as the outside with charming details and just the right amount of space for six adults. It was an extremely hot and humid weekend so an extra air conditioner was put upstairs to ensure our comfort. Megan left us lots of specific information about sights and places to visit, but we also found sitting on the backyard patio was a great spot to visit and enjoy our cocktails. Everything you'd need for a visit was already in the house, such as soaps, shampoo, laundry detergents, basic condiments in the pantry and even delicious chocolates on our pillows! This is a great place to stay if you're in the area and we would definitely recommend it. Thank you Megan for making our visit comfortable and memorable.

Adorable home in historic district will make you feel like a local

  • 5 of 5

I'll never stay in a hotel while visiting Annapolis again. I was visiting family, and wanted privacy, yet ease of getting around. Staying here, I really got the essence of the town I haven't gotten staying in hotels. The home just... feels Annapolitan! The home owner supplied parking passes so the worries of "taking home an Annapolis memory" in the form of a $25 contribution to the cities coffers (parking ticket) was taken off the table right away. Parking is so simple around Charles St. It is within walking distance to all the shops, restaurants and pubs. Also, It has an awesome back yard if you just want to chill and enjoy a balmy east coast evening. The property is decorated in an amazingly stylish and cozy manner. I wanted to hire Megan to redo the interior of my home! Also, the home is dog friendly! It also makes a great home base if you want to explore Baltimore, D.C., or Maryland's eastern shore. I'll definitely be back!

Lovely home and best location in Annapolis. Fantastic - must stay here again!

  • 5 of 5

Loved this place - can I move in please? I stayed in a hotel on my last visit to Annapolis but wish I knew about this place. The house is lovely and charming with amazing open beams in one bedroom and character throughout. It has an adorable courtyard in the back with nice table and relaxing chairs that was fantastic to enjoy an evening cocktail and coffee in the morning. The house is on a quaint street a block from a nice park at the water and 2 blocks from Main Street - could not be more convenient. Oh and the house was immaculate and everything we needed was ready for us, clean and neat - wonderful! There were even some treats for convenience like coffee, tea and spices in case we needed them. Could not ask for more. Hosts Megan and Jon were terrific - friendly and accommodating. Oh and you should see some of be cool artistic lighting in the house - adds unique personality to an already unique home. Just awesome! Can't imagine staying anywhere else when I come back to town. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay!
