We made a quick side trip from DC to Annapolis, mainly to visit the Academy. I had no idea how perfect the location of the Inn was relative to the visitor gate of the Academy and the waterfront/downtown until we checked in. All important sites and many good restaurants are within easy walking distance.
Charlotte and Bill are delightful hosts who know their neighborhood well and whose dining recommendations are sound. Breakfast is delicious but offers no choices for guests who prefer something light such as yoghurt or toast with their coffee.
For great breakfast entertainment, ask Bill about his soon to be published book. It sounds as if it will be brilliant and we can't wait for our copy. Bill is a natural teacher, so be prepared to learn as much as you will enjoy his stories about Annaplis, his years as an academic and his travels!
We will definitely stay there again.
