We had a last-minute need to stay overnight in Princess Anne and found the Alexander House on Tripadvisor. It was almost 8pm, but Elizabeth could not have been more accommodating. She offered a nice room for a reasonable price, and made suggestions for places to eat. What a gem, especially for booklovers like us! Quotations are everywhere, and each room... More

Pretty little town - very quiet on a saturday afternoon ! The bed and breakfast was very pleasant and very comfortable - we enjoyed the experience and the region - a bit early for the crabs but we did get some great softshell options! Elizabeth is very a great host and we loved our little trip !

This is a wonderful Bed and Breakfast for those who enjoy an extremely comfortable and clean setting with a delightful innkeeper, Elizabeth, who is terrific in providing a memorable visit topped off with a fantastic homemade breakfast. It's also a great place to stop on your way to New York or Boston for one of the Annual Antiquarian Book Fairs.... More

We stayed at the Alexander House for 1 night.Not many choices in the area. It is a 19th century 2 story home, nicely restored. We stayed in the Jane Austen room. Comfortable bed, nice bathroom, 2nd floor. I believe there are 3 rooms in this B and B. Breakfast was included, crepes, with fruit and scrambled eggs. Juice and coffee.... More

Before heading to DC for a series of meetings, my wife and I wanted to explore the Delmarva peninsula. The first few days of our stay, we made trips to Assateague Island, enjoying the beach on the Atlantic side, and a great boat tour on the Chincoteague Island at the suggestion of our hostess, Elizabeth. Since we are from Colorado,... More

We loved our stay at the Alexander B&B in Princess Anne during a visit to spend time with two of our grown children. The proprietors have thought of every detail in furnishing rooms focused on authors. Quaint and thematic items make you imagine that you truly are sleeping in Jane Austen's bedroom or reading a book in front of a... More

My wife and I made a quick trip to Princess Anne and found Alexander B&B through Trip Advisor. The reviews were good and decided to give it a try. We were not dissappointed. With it being off season on the lower shore, the inn was quiet. Our bedroom was very well appointed and the common areas were very comfortable and... More

Enroute to my home town of Princess Anne, it was an impromptu decision to look for a B&B. The stars aligned for myself, my husband, two daughters (15 & 24) and son (18) to be guests for 3 nights at the Alexander House Book-lovers' Bed and Breakfast. My husband and I decided to stay in the Langston Hughes room, the... More

We called last minute with a family of 5 over a Thanksgiving weekend. We were to stay at families but the it would have been so over crowded. We called and Ms. E was gracious to accommodate. The house was charming and clean. The location was perfect and right off of Route 13. The rooms were roomy and comfortable. We... More

I stayed at the Alexander House last winter with a fellow poet. This was one of the B&B's writing retreat weekends - arrive Friday afternoon, and depart Sunday afternoon. There were several other writers in attendance that weekend as well. Wonderful place!! Our hostess, Elizabeth, was warm and gracious. Great food, and the rooms are beautiful!! We all interacted so...
