“All too brief a stay”
Reviewed 19 September 2013

We were made most welcome by Bill and Charlotte who were perfect hosts. The room was extremely comfortable and Flag House Inn is perfectly situated to explore Annapolis. All the accessories are of good quality and there are many thoughtful features. Our only regret is that one night wasn't long enough.

One night is better than never getting to Annapolis and staying with us at Flag House Inn. Having the Union Jack flying from the front porch is not only a treat for us and for you but also for the many people who walk by each day and stop to identify the flags. Maybe one of these days you will get back this way and have more time to explore our lovely town and historic district.

Such a great place to stay while visiting Annapolis! The Flaghouse is in a great location right near the water next to the Naval Academy. Easily accessible to everything downtown! As for the hosts, Charlotte and Bill were wonderful. Took the time to explain the area to us and recommend things to do and places to eat. I would absolutely stay again and recommend to friends!

What more can I say than thank you for your lovely words about our Flag House Inn. We always enjoy having folks from NC stay with us as that is a state that is near and dear to our hearts after living there for almost 30 years. We would love to have you stay with us again and hope you can do so sometime when you find yourselves in Annapolis again.

Just got back from a Labor Day trip to Annapolis, MD and stayed at the Flag House. My mother and daughter accompanied me. We stayed in the two room suite which was wonderful. My mom had her own room and my daughter and I shared the King Bed. We had arranged for a late arrival due to our flight and Charlotte was most accommodating. It is so quiet yet right in historic downtown so that driving is not necessary unless you need to leave the area. With free parking and breakfast it is very competitive with all of the other options in the area. We loved it.

We have been so busy this fall I am a bit behind in responding to your review of our B&B. Thanks so much for taking the time to do so which enables other travelers to find out about Flag House Inn. The two room suite is so well suited for just your type of travel plans and I am so happy your three lovely ladies enjoyed your stay with us.

Charlotte and Bill were perfect hosts. The breakfasts were delicious. The location was perfect, it was directly across the street from the Naval Academy and a block off of the main street. It also had off-street parking which was a bonus. You never have to use your car. If I were in the area again I would ask for a room in the back of the house as the room we had in the front tended to be a little noisy from the street traffic, but other than that it was great.

Glad you enjoyed your stay. Sorry you didn't use the soothing sound machine to help aid your sleep while you were here. Maybe next time listening to ocean surf as you go to sleep will be a nice addition to your restful night. Hope to see you again soon.

I felt very comfortable booking the Flag House Inn for a long weekend summer getaway after reading all of the positive feedback on TripAdvisor. I'm glad I took the advice of all of the great reviews. The Flag House Inn is conveniently located within a quick walk of anything you will want to do in Annapolis (once we parked the car, we didn't need it for the remainder of our stay ... and speaking of parking, other area hotels I looked into all charge hefty daily parking fees, while Flag House Inn does not!). Additionally, it is a stones-throw away from the Naval Academy, which I highly recommend. Our room ('The Commodore') was very spacious and incredibly clean. Breakfast each morning was fabulous. Charlotte and Bill helped give recommendations on things to do in the area and were super-friendly. Without a doubt, if/when we go back to Annapolis, there will be no reason to look elsewhere for accommodations.

I am so far behind in getting a response to your wonderful review of Flag House Inn. The good news is that it means I have been busy with other guests who have read what you said about our B&B so thank you so much for that. You noted the three things that separate us from larger hotels - free onsite parking, great breakfast each morning which is included in the rate and lots of talking and sharing with you about the places to see and things to do while visiting Annapolis. Your kind words are much appreciated.

I love staying here! It's directly across the street from the Naval Academy, has friendly & helpful owners who are very knowledgeable about the area and are ready to go to any length to make the stay a great one, and it has on-site parking. Very comfortable and clean. Quaint front porch with swing to sit on after long day of site-seeing. Walking distance to anything you'd like to do in Downtown Annapolis. Perfect for someone traveling alone or a couple. Just got home from my second stay. Looking forward to my next visit.

It is with great sadness that we only stayed for one night at this phenomenal Inn!
When we arrived, Charlotte was putting the Union Jack out in our honour and told us that she'd upgraded our room as we were on our honeymoon. She was quick to give us recommendations and pointers about where to go and what to do and we decided to go on the walking tour, which, funnily enough, featured the Inn!
Like everyone else has said, it is in a fabulous location and the benefit of free off-road parking whilst on a road trip was so useful to us!
We had a beautiful room and also enjoyed the use of the guest sitting room (my husband appreciated the Jolly Rachers!) and the breakfast was lovely: cooked apples and cranberries, cereal, French toast with bacon and syrup and juice, tea and coffee. Perfection!
When it was time to (reluctantly) leave, Bill was more than happy to offer us travel advice.
We hope to return some day, thank you Charlotte and Bill :)

Hope you are settled back home again and beginning many years of wonderful married life together. Your honeymoon visit along the East Coast of the US was truly a great adventure and we are so lucky that you choose Flag House Inn as your stop in Annapolis. Flying the Union Jack in your honor was our joy and pleasure!
