History and elegance in this fabulous America town, recently voted number 12 out of The 20 Best Small Towns to Visit in 2014, by the Smithsonian Magazine. Visiting Havre de Grace while staying in The Armitage HdG Guest House will give you and your family an unforgettable American experience. She is the America the world should see; shaded sidewalks on tree lined streets, beautifully restored classic homes, parades on the main street and a caring and active community and churches where everyone knows everyone else. And there's more! You may not have known this interesting fact, Havre de Grace tied in a vote with Washington DC to become the nation's Capitol. Washington DC's main train station is only an hour away on AMTRAK or MARC from the Aberdeen train station (3 miles from our home)

There's plenty more to know about the history of this incredible little town!

Downtown charm and plenty to do: The Armitage HdG has been honored with the 2009 residential preservation award by the Havre de Grace Historic Preservation Commission, and is situated in historic Havre de Grace; located just 2 blocks from the heart of downtown art galleries, cafés, restaurants, antique shops, book stores.

Only a stone's throw from the Susquehanna River, at the top of the Chesapeake bay where you'll find the Promenade boardwalk, the oldest lighthouse in Maryland, the yacht harbor, and museums. Boat and Kayak tours, biking and hiking. There's more to do than restaurants and shopping!

Fantastic location and on the NYC/DC Amtrak line: The Armitage HdG in Havre de Grace is a 90 minutes car drive to DuPont Circle in Washington DC or, if you prefer Amtrak, a 10 minute drive to the Aberdeen station servicing NYC Penn station, Washington DC, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Wilmington.

Beautiful, comfortable and nicely updated!

  • 5 of 5

Honestly the most comfortable bed I’ve ever slept on in a rental! We’ve stayed in 20+ across the nation. Exactly as pictured and described, very accommodating owners and nice location.

beautiful spacious home in the perfect neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for a great place to stay in HdG, this is it. It is within easy walking distance to absolutely everything - both "downtown" and the Promenade - and it is more spacious than the photos reveal. The porch was adorable and the living/dining rooms are open to one another, so it was great for the evening when my sisters and I were just hanging out. In addition, there is a lovely little sunroom off the master bedroom where I did yoga one morning. Just a lovely home to spend a weekend in!

I would recommend this property to anyone staying in this area, only a $12 train ride from DC.

  • 4 of 5

The property is ideally located not far from the downtown area in this laid back area of Maryland. Could do with better internet connection and TV, but that aside you will find it difficult to find anything to complain about. The weather complied while we were there and we had an excellent holiday.

Beautiful and Unique!

  • 5 of 5

Great property to stay in - plenty of space yet very warm and cozy. The owner was very easy to work with and all house guidelines were explicit. The house is within walking distance to views of the water and to the shops on Washington St. It is great to have an lodging option like this in the area! My only feedback is having brighter lighting in some rooms; however, that is certainly a personal preference and not a deficiency with the property itself. Thanks!

Property Owner was Communicative, Gracious and Helpful.

Property was as Advertised, Well Cared For and Easy to Call Home.

Need seating for 5-6 in Living Room but, was adequate for our stay.

We will plan to stay there again !
