We welcome you to our fabulous row house on one of the most coveted areas in all of the Historic District !You will be delighted by this one of a kind home located right in the heart of Downtown Annapolis.We have been a full time vacation rental since 2011 and have loved hosting hundreds of groups Of families and friends coming to visit the city that I'm proud to call my hometown.Im Also proud to be chosen as a Premier Partner with VRBO - this enables us to pre commincate with One another so if you have any questions or want to chat go ahead and give me a ring !

Built in 1845 and renovated in 2008 and freshly painted ( exterior and interior) in 2018 this home retains its original charm while having all of the luxuries of modern day living.One of the most photographed homes in town, it is located two blocks from the Main st , City dock , and Gate 1 of USNA . Charles is an exclusive, quiet, one way residential only street. Recently chosen as the location for filming of a special for The History Channel ( May 2012) we have also been chosen as one of the select Capital Newspapers 'Homes of the Week' (Oct 8, 2011) as well as one of the exclusive properties for The Historic Foundations ' Candlelight Tour ' Our home has a great location without all of the noise from traffic or the late night bar scene yet you and your guests can absolutely walk to everything you want or need from this property. Spend the day at the private park at the end of the street and watch the sailboats cruise by or walk to town for some sightseeing, shopping, a Navy game,sailing or one of the numerous award winning restaurants.You may even meet some famous people on your walk home-our house is right around the corner from TV personality Greta Van Susteren and across the creek from famous director Barry Levinson. Last summer baseball star Cal Ripken was spotted numerous times paddle boarding down at the park as he is also renting a house very nearby !

Located directly in the middle of all of the historic churches, this home is an ideal option for out of town wedding parties and guests. Once you compare hotel rates in town you will find that that renting a full house is a wonderful alternative-this is your chance be an Annapolitan !( Yes, that is a real term for a local :)

After a full day you and your party will be sure to enjoy your downtime when you arrive home. Original wide plank wood floors,a copper tin ceiling, reclaimed wood doors and butcher block counters are only some of the interesting period features you will admire. Decorated by a local art dealer and gallery owner this home contains many unsual, one of a kind pieces by artists you will most likely recognize.

About Megan

Im a retail business owner that grew up in downtown Annapolis- one street over from this house !Megan is a business owner and Jon a Realtor-when not running our VRBOs we invest in real estate and enjoy distance running , riding bikes, surfing, swimming, paddleboarding and eating out at all of Naptowns great restaurants..We own and manage several properties in town so please contact us if this property is booked or if your interested in buying or renting out a VRBO in town .

Megan purchased this house in 2007

Why Megan chose Historic District

This house is on my favorite street in the Historic district. I fell in love with it at first sight, purchased and began renovations so that now it retains its 1800s charm but updated enough for today's standards. This location with the full private backyard is so rare in the Historic District !

What makes this house unique

We are a full time VRBO and pride ourselves on being the most booked house downtown . We keep an awesome house for our guests for a great price !We even split our cleaning fee down the middle and offer free parking passes . Don't be fooled - downtown is not in Murray Hill, Eastport , Homewood or any of the other areas folks call downtown .... We are just two blocks from Main street yet two houses away from the private park at Actons Cove where you can jump on the water taxi and go to dinner across the water like a local .

Guestbook comments from the owner

3rd time stay at Megans property in Annapolis . Centrally located and affordable it's the place to stay in town ( ssshhhhh) lol.

Location, location, location!

  • 4 of 5

Location, location, location was perfect! Just half block from a small marina, and several blocks from Main Street's business and restaurants. Very quiet location on one-way street with very little traffic. Parking was not a problem for us. We could walk to everything we wanted to do, so we never moved the cars. The house is historically quaint. The backyard seating area was less appealing than photographed, and we chose not to use it.

Owner's Response: Once again Barbara apologies - Our area has had the rainiest spring season ever so it was very hard to keep the yard / patio perfectly maintained . We will try and do better !

Wonderful property in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house and it truly met our expectations! The park at the end of the street was such a bonus and a perfect place to walk our dog. We highly recommend the house for a short or long stay.

Sweet Spot !

  • 5 of 5

Came in for a mid week getaway with the hubs and another couple. Enjoyed the house - great in town location and plenty of room and privacy . As usual Annapolis didn't disappoint- awesome restaurants and shopping. We always do a VRBO bc it ends up being half the price of a hotel .... The owner provided parking permits at this one which is a first and made it an even better deal . Will most definitely be back !
