“Historic home though some furnishings unexplained”
Reviewed 22 July 2012

This home has a memorable staircase and an interesting history. Our guide didn't know the purpose of an urn with a faucet that was part of a sideboard[?]. it would have been nice to know what was the function of that piece.

“A Wonderful, Still Lived-in Historic House”
Reviewed 28 April 2012

The Chase-Lloyd House has some wonderful historic and architectural feature and is in fantastic shape--especially since the house has been lived-in to the present day. Visitors can only tour the first floor public rooms since the upper floors are occupied by elderly ladies. The house is well-worth visiting!

“Beautiful house and grounds”
Reviewed 15 December 2011

The interior is beautiful with beautiful furniture. Outside is a wonderful rose garden. They will sell you seeds from their hyacinth bean vines. It would be great to see more historic mansions used as homes for nice old ladies and the like.

“Best-kept secret in Annapolis!”
Reviewed 24 April 2009

The Chase-Lloyd home was built by Samuel Chase, signer of the Declaration of Independence. The interior is original and has a rare cantilever staircase in addition ot many other features. It is open to the public from 2-4 every day but Monday and costs $2 to visit. The hours are short because it's also a home for elderly ladies to "escape the vicissitudes of life." What many people don't know however is that behind the house and hidden to the public is a fabulous garden that encompasses about a third of an acre. If you hit it right (Mayish) you'll see the allee of tree peonies that lead to a wisteria pagoda sheltering a little pond. Lots of benches and lots of shade, so bring your sandiwich and make this your lunchtime visit!!!
