I spent a week working on a book and couldn't ask for a better place. It was peaceful, beautiful and relaxing. The owner was hospitable and incredibly accommodating (being a writer herself, she was the perfect host). The bed was great and you can put a capital B in breakfast, because in was simply delicious. Highly recommend this cozy B&B... More

We stayed at this B and B for 2 weeks, while visiting my daughter and her family at Princess Anne. We were so grateful for the hospitality and the kindness shown to us by our host Elizabeth, whom we all fondly call as Lizzie. The place was so comfortable and cozy, and has a magnificent ambience for any book lover.... More

What a delightful experience! My love of books brought me to Alexander House Booklovers B&B and my stay was grander than my expectations. The home is lovely, well appointed and cared for. The host is sincerely charming, thoughtful, and clearly invested in guests' stellar accommodations and numerous courtesies. Breakfast? AWESOME crepes on the side porch while listening to the water...

Alexander House is wonderful, charming and relaxing. Nestled on a quiet street in historic Princess Anne, this is a great place to come and kick your shoes off and slow life down for a spell. My wife and I have been there twice and look forward to returning soon. Elizabeth is a witty and engaging personality who will go out... More

Very late in writing this review but it came to mind today and I wanted to sing praises! My husband and I spent our wedding night here - two nights total before we headed off to our honeymoon adventure. The Jane Austen room was wonderful! Extremely comfortable bed and lovely vintage furniture and decor. The bathroom was spacious and dreamy... More

Alexander House is a rare pleasure that exceeds all expectations .We chose to stay based on the web site and were so pleased with the hosts,literary atmosphere, comfort amidst such thoughtfully appointed rooms. My favorite bell weather of a successful stay is the other guests. Evening apertif with pleasant conversation was a fine nightcap.

This is a pretty and well-appointed home. The rooms highlight authors, so it is interesting for bibliophiles. The breakfasts were well prepared and attractive. Notwithstanding, the number and specificity of the rules made it hard to feel totally at ease.

I have stayed at the Booklovers' B & B twice now, both times associated with historical research for my novels (set in 18th C Maryland). I loved the place! It was so comfortable, and Elizabeth and Peter Alexander were so welcoming that it felt like home. I rate the Alexander House as one of the best B & Bs I... More
