What Makes Us a Perfect Destination for a Carefree Vacation
We absolutely believe location is everything. And we’ve got it!
We are ideally nestled in downtown Annapolis’ historic maritime district, Eastport, two blocks from famed Restaurant Row. It is an eclectic neighborhood of Annapolis, much like SoHo, the Village or TriBeCa are neighborhoods of Manhattan.
Here, you will spend your downtime among the locals, experiencing the fabric of Annapolis as we do: casually and carefree. In our unhurried peninsula location, you will find yourself immersed among marinas, boatyards, yacht clubs, sailing schools, galleries, and the BEST restaurants. See what makes Eastport the fun part of Annapolis.
The only one in downtown Annapolis surrounded by rivers and the Bay, is so close to the water that on a breezy day, you can hear bans of rigging melodiously striking the masts of sailboats, like distant church bells. If you choose to sleep with your windows open, capturing the Bay breezes, you may awaken to the harmony of morning calisthenics dutifully performed by United States Naval Academy (USNA) midshipmen.
Guests continually recognize that while it takes only minutes to walk through our quaint neighborhood to the City Dock area, they find themselves wonderfully removed from all the congestion, noise, and the parking challenges that come with Annapolis being, truly, a world-class destination.
Annapolis’ best restaurants are also the closest! Positioned on or near Restaurant Row, please find our favorite locally owned/managed establishments that are known for their excellence in food/service/views and/or neighborhood hangout. Feel free to ask for more details upon confirming your INN reservation.
Ask anyone. Eastport remains the fun and highly coveted neighborhood of downtown Annapolis!
A short scenic walk over the operator tendered drawbridge will put you in the geographic center of town, City Dock, and Main Street. The United States Naval Academy is a few steps past City Dock.
For a more nautical approach, try the water taxi on your return to the INN.
Continuing a few minutes more to “Uptown Annapolis”, you can find yourself along the West Street corridor, home of First Sunday Arts Festivals, nationally acclaimed music performances at the Ram’s Head On Stage, and more dining choices.
Originally founded in 1696 as King William’s School and later chartered in 1784 as St. John’s College, the campus and it’s wonderful Mitchell Art Gallery are also within an easy walk. Or for a change of pace, try a free pedicab ride.
