    Fascinating tour of the home, highlighting aspects that were in use during the time when Austen was writing her novels. Inventive and insightful!  more »

    Visited there on vacation last week. It was a great experience. The tour guide was very knowledgeable, and gave a a thorough tour and answered all questions well. Wish I could remember her name to thank her. The house is an excellent example of it's period, and well kept with many original or period pieces.

Where to stay in Annapolis

Annapolis's historical downtown area draws the city's tourists, so there's plenty of choice of accommodations here. Small inns and charming bed and breakfasts represent most of the options in this part of town, with a couple even offering views of Annapolis Harbor. If everything here is booked, try the collection of national-chain hotels to the west of downtown, although access to the city's attractions isn't as convenient. Try to reserve in advance if you plan to visit during a summer weekend.
