The buds on our cherry blossoms are beginning to appear which means the flowers are not far behind. Although this has been a long, cold and wet winter in Annapolis, Maryland we are shedding our winter coats for lighter weight clothing and getting out to see the daffodils and forsythia in bloom. So, if you are looking for a getaway to Annapolis now is the time to begin planning and booking your room here at Flag House Inn. Whether mid-week or weekend we are happy to try and accommodate your requests. Mid-week rates are reduced in case you were wondering.
So, what is happening in town that you might like to enjoy. Of course, there are always the boat rides from the City Dock which is just a two minute walk from our front porch at Flag House Inn B&B. Visiting this William Paca House, the Chase Lloyd House or the Hammond Harwood House should also be a priority to see homes that were built in the 1700’s and still in beautiful condition today.
