The house & history are interesting, even if most of it is pieced together & not entirely accurate. The house is well maintained. The gardens were full of puddles from the severe rains so it would be nice to go back when all's in bloom! Our tourguide went about 30 min over, but the info was pretty interesting!

A friend and I did our best to hit all the historical homes in Annapolis and we clearly saved the best for last. Tours begin on the half hour and last about an hour.We did miss out on the last tour of the day when we arrived as it filled just as we arrived, so make a point to arrive... More

We were recommended to go up to this house for a "wonderful tasting of historic chocolates." Well, it was not worth the effort. The house is interesting although nothing much is original since it was used as a hotel and almost destroyed before restoration. The guides were nice but not nearly as knowledgeable as I would have like and seemed... More

Knowledgeable tour guides, beautiful house, great history, and fabulous gardens that you can walk in as long as you want after the tour. Highly recommended. We went as a family of 6 and all were impressed.

Spent a lovely evening with Mr. Paca last night at the William Paca home on King George Street in Annapolis, MD! Great evening out with my father for an early Father's Day gift. Tasted three brews out of Philadelphia provided by Mills Wine and spirits in downtown Annapolis. My favorite was the George Washington's Tavern Porter, a smooth molasses flavor.... More

I toured the house as well as the garden. Both were so well tended. The restoration of the garden is amazing.

We had a very well informed guide who was thorough in her explanations. She quickly sought the advise of another when she did not have an immediate answer to our question. We have seen many of this type of home but there is always something to be learned. There is great effort to be true to the times.

We decided to just your the gardens and we were not disappointed in our choice. We spent about an hour walking through the different sections, sitting on side benches, and taking pictures. The day before we visited a wedding reception was being held and the setting looked grand. Definitely recommend if looking for a leisure activity.

The gardens have been recreated to look like the orginals. Ther are several different spaces (box garden, holly garden etc) When we visited in May there was very little colour. It was however a peacful haven from the town. The tourtist information kiosk on the quayside gave us a discount coupon
