You are cordially invited to be our guest at The Annapolis Inn, an historic landmark townhouse majestically poised on prestigious Prince George Street in the heart of the Historic District of Annapolis. The Annapolis Inn is neighbor to The US Naval Academy, St. John’s College, the City Dock and the State Capital and is quietly surrounded by stately historic mansions and points of interest, museums and many diverse examples of almost three hundred years of historic architecture. No need for your car here just comfortable walking shoes! Only several blocks away from the fun of sailing activities, schools and events, walking and garden tours, civic and cultural events, and restaurants and shops, the Inn remains close yet quietly removed from the center of downtown activity.
The face of Annapolis changes with each season, and with each season Annapolis offers its visitors something different to discover. In the Spring and Summer, take a walking tour of the city, the Naval Academy or the historic homes and museums. Attend the executive lectures at St. John’s College or visit the Mitchell Art Gallery on its campus. Take sailing or power boat classes, participate in ragattas, watch the Annapolis Yacht Club sailboat races every Wednesday evening. Enjoy year round sporting events at the Naval Academy. Savor the fanfare and the sights of coiffed gentry present at the annual St. John’s College croquet match against the Naval Academy. This annual event hails a spectacle and a tradition almost as old as Annapolis itself. Revered by visitors around the country sporting the look and glamour of The Great Gatsby, they mingle with Naval Midshipmen in formal dress code attire. Truly a tradition of a bygone era, it is an exquisite display of civilized showmanship and sportsmanship impossible to recreate anywhere else.
The Navy Football games and The International Sailboat & Powerboat Shows announce the kick-off of Fall, transforming Annapolis into the capital of unparalleled college football rivalry and maritime preeminence. Candlelight tours and haunted house tours also beguile the Fall visitor and the smell of lit fireplaces, jovial taverns and restaurants, musical and theatrical performances and Halloween concerts draw many to the quaint and rustic streets of our country’s former Capitol, Annapolis.
