We decided to go to Annapolis for New Year's Eve at the last minute and were lucky to get a room at the Flag House Inn. The house is easy to find and the location couldn't have been any better, right across the street from the USNA, a couple of blocks from the city dock (important factor as we planned to go watch the fireworks there at midnight) and a short walk -15 minutes - to Eastport (for the many additional good dining options). The onsite parking in the back of the house was a bonus (compact cars only). Bill and Charlotte were wonderful hosts - they quickly oriented us on where to go and what to see right on arrival. We had the Commodore room on the 3rd floor, elegantly decorated (wallpaper, headboard and cornice fabric all match!), spacious and bright (corner room with 3 windows, two facing the street and front of house, at night also enough lighting to read by) with 2 comfortable chairs. Shower and toilet are small and in separate rooms due to a structural wall - actually a convenient feature. Bed was a king, a bit on the soft side and sheets seemed to be microfibrer (not used to that as I prefer cotton in general). The room is equipped with a white noise maker but there was no need for it as it's fairly quiet – you could hear sounds from the street during the day but not at night. Central heating was also quiet and worked very well keeping the room warm and toasty. In the morning the hosts prepared a delicious breakfast featuring a mixed fruit salad, poppy seed pound cake, blueberry French toast and sausage patties, served on beautiful plates. A good getaway and a great way to start the new year!
