We have established policies for check-in, check-out, deposits, refunds and cancellations, as well as on-site policies for breakfast time and quiet time. For all of these, we will always work with you such as early or late check-in or early departure, or short-notice cancellations, balancing your situation with our challenges of running a small business.
Check-in is 4-6pm, check-out is 11am. Guests can often park and check-in earlier than our official check-in time and enjoy the afternoon around Annapolis. We will not be able to confirm until the day previous to arrival. We use a texting app to stay in touch, you will get your first text 6p local time the evening before arrival. We find this works well. For early arrivals, we might not be able to greet you if we are prepping rooms, but we will text you when your room becomes available and we then greet you in person at check-in
For late arrival, we can always work out a way to get you in. On occasion, we will be away during check-in, and we will inform you how you can get your key…
Similarly, while check-out is 11am, often guests can leave their cars for a few more hours for some final shopping or sightseeing. Always check with the Innkeepers in advance to confirm your latest departure time. There is always parking available in town at public garages as well.
Making a reservation – When you book online with our state-of-the-art reservation system, you get immediate confirmation of your reservation as well as a 7-day advance reminder of your stay along with our “things to do” recommendations.
Breakfast is served at 8:30 or 9:15 (we ask you to indicate preferred time with texting app), we will coffee/tea available by 7:15 am (also a Keurig is available 24 hours). With notice, we can have breakfast available earlier, always discuss this with the Innkeepers.
Children: We welcome guests over 13 years old. In certain situations, the Flag House Inn will welcome younger children; this should always be discussed by phone in advance with the Innkeepers.
This is a non-smoking home.
Hudson lives across the street and if you’re lucky you’ll see him out for a walk with his owners. He’s grown quite a bit since this pic! Unfortunately, while we love animals, we cannot accommodate your pets for your stay with us. But there’s lot’s of dogs around town so you can get your doggie fix…
