“Contentment and Tavern Tea”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2007

We arrived on a rainy day and thought our plans would be drowned, but ended up thoroughly enjoying the cozy atmosphere of the Tavern! The hosts were attentive to our every need and the room was exquisite. There is great attention to detail, with modern marble bathrooms in an historic building that brings you back to a simpler time. I've stayed at B&B's that are cramped and uncomfortable, but this one is spacious and quite livable, which we would have loved to do and never come home! When we finally got out to see the town, it complimented the Tavern with its charm and history. The only thing that got us out of our snug bed (I had to check the mattress, since I never slept so well!) was the great breakfast and amazing tea that they serve. There is a unique display of tea cups and pots and an equally intriguing array of choices to drink. I love this place and hope to make it a regular stop on our summer vacations.

Reynolds Tavern is located in the heart of Annapolis, steps away from the oldest Capital building in the U.S.

From the moment I walked in to Reynolds Tavern, I had the feeling I was going back in time to colonial days. As a matter of fact, George Washington is reported to have visited the tavern. The british influenced decor in the Zagat rated tea room is perfectly proper, especially for the high tea served daily. Two cozy rooms to the right and left of the main entry hall make up the Tea Room. The ambiance is cozy and the food is scrumtious! Try the declicious, hearty Crab Benedict for breakfast. It's a popular place for lunch, the resaturant was full both days I was there. Home made scones and delicious deserts, such as; Three Berry Tart, strawberry shortcake in the summer, lemon bars and key lime pie are served during high tea.

I stayed in The Jefferson Suite which had a king size four poster bed.The room overlooked Church Circle, and at night church bells chimed which added to the charming setting. Adjacent to the bedroom was the sitting room with a second small TV and a large armoire with terry robes. A couch and writing desk finished the room. The bathroom was recently updated with floor to ceiling tile.

For the most part, the entire brick colonial building is in its original form, including the nutmeg colored wide plank floor and staircase leading to the two suites and one room. ( The Washington Suite is a smidge larger and equally attractive)

For history and non history buffs this lovely inn is the ideal getaway for a long weekend. You won't be disappointed!

The innkeepers are genuinely gracious and accomodating, and that adds even more appeal to an already appealing place.
