“INN HEAVEN !!!”
Reviewed September 2, 2008

I cannot fully share what a pleasant and healing experience it was to be at the Inn at Horn Point. I'm a city girl from the DC area and I love city life, but I have to say that the constant running was taking it's toll on my mind and health (let's not talk about the car). Anyway, if you're feeling that you're at the end of your rope and need an instant break from business-as-usual, treat yourself to another world at this charming, gorgeous, and almost other-worldly Eastport oasis of picket fences, quiet beauty, and friendly people.

My room, Captiva, was an upstairs hide-away that welcomed both morning and evening sun and made you remember to be thankful just to be alive. It was a perfect size for me and my guitar (pick another room if there are more of you) and the fact that I had no TV or phone in the room hastened my decompression to a more sane pace. Crickets sang me to sleep, birds woke me up, and the baby squirrels in the near-by tree kept me more than entertained!

If you're worried about the fact that you're not in the center of downtown Annapolis -- DON'T. I've stayed at the Annapolis Marriott Waterfront and have nothing but praise for the service there and the location. But if you want to spend close to $100 less and have a superior (and possibly longer) experience in Annapolis, the Inn at Horn Point is the place. It's only a leisurely 15-minute or less walk to Main Street. There are amazing restaurants within blocks (I recommend O'Leary's, the Rockfish, and Carrol's Creek, in that order) and you can grab a water taxi that will ferry you over and give you one more reason to marvel at this world's natural beauty. You can be in the center of everything, but you can leave it when you need to. Trust me..you'll appreciate having the choice!

Cory and Carol are the PERFECT Inn Keepers. Not only is the Inn absolutely gorgeous with soothing piped in music that runs the gamut from smooth jazz to an eclectic mix of soft adult contemporary standards, but they go out of their way to answer or research any question that you have. If you want the low-down on a particular restaurant, tour, local news, or the weather, you don't have to look any further than them. And the gourmet breakfast is YUM....fresh fruit and buckwheat pancakes one day or a fluffy omlettee with sausage the next (with herbs from the garden, I heard :-). Cory told me that they do quite a bit of shopping at the nearby Whole Foods. Between that and the fact that he used to work in the Hospitality industry for 2-3+ decades, the quality that they extend to each guest shows. They WANT to serve and that attitude just makes me want to return again and again.

  • Liked — The personalized service and the gorgeous, safe location. Plus, parking is free!
  • Disliked — Not one thing!

We apologize for taking so long to acknowledge the fact that we really, really appreciated the time that you took out of a busy schedule to post a review. You take care and do let us know the next time that you will be in the area. We look forward to hosting your visit to Annapolis soon.

What a magical place! This is a throwback to the Victorian era, tucked away in a quiet neighborhood just blocks from many wonderful places to dine, walk, or shop. Call me crazy, but I rode my bicycle from Washington DC to the Inn at Horn Point ( bumpy paths and back roads for 50 miles/ 80 km). Thus, when I arrived, I was ready for a hot shower, good food, and a comfortable bed. All of our expectations were met and then exceeded during our stay. The innkeepers, Cory and Carol, are wonderful hosts who create a very welcoming experience for their guests.

This place seems to attract some of the most diverse guests (DC, Kenya, Virginia, Iran and Europe were all represented.) who share a common love of travel, relaxing conversations with people from around the world, and an appreciation for quality. And, the breakfast is a definite can't miss delight, as well.

Corey and Carol are very focused on making sure you have a great experience while at their establishment, and do so with a very light touch. Having worked in the hotel and restaurant industry for several years, I feel that I know and expect quality service. Obviously, Cory and Carol have mastered it, and make sure that each of their guests are special beneficiaries. You really feel like you've gotten your moneys worth at the Inn at Horn Point , and you will leave feeling relaxed and re-energized too.

  • Disliked — It was fantastic. There was nothing to dislike.

We had a wonderful time at the Inn at Horn Point. The owners (Cory and Carol) were very gracious and accomodating. The home has been nicely renovated and well decorated. The breakfasts were delicious and the little extra's (e.g. home baked cookies in the evening) were nice. The rooms are nicely appointed and very clean. The Inn's location is great; 1 block from water, close to nice restaurants and bars and an easy walk into downtown Annapolis. We would definitely stay there again.

The Inn is located in a beautiful, peaceful neighborhood that is within walking distance to the town of Annapolis; it is situated on a peninsula of the bay. The moment you arrive you are welcomed by beautiful gardens and a wrap-around porch. Our room was beautifully appointed with a private balcony, private bathroom (w/ a clawfoot slipper tub) and fireplace...the bed was definitely luxurius with with the featherbed/down mattress topper and pillows. When we retired back to our room at the end of the day we had home backed cookies waiting for us in a basket on our bed. The next morning we were graced with a 3 course breakfast in the most elegant manner; Cory served us as is if we were at the grandest of hotels! His background in hotel management is clearly evident with all of the fine details and accoutraments at the Inn at Horn Point. We left with a feeling of being pampered and peaceful... which is much needed in our hectic lives. We will definitely treat ourselves to another stay at their Inn ..

With this being our first trip into Annapolis, finding the right accommodation's was a must. The Inn at Horn Point far exceeded our expectations. The location was perfect for any attraction in the area, yet nestled in a quiet cozy neighborhood. The Inn itself offered very clean and comfortable rooms, with many nice touches throughout that always reminded you that you were near the water and the famous boatyards of Annapolis. The highlight of the stay was by far the gourmet breakfast served each weekend morning. You felt you were eating over a famous chef's house each morning. We will definitely be returning soon.

My wife and I were given a night at the Inn at Horn Point (by my daughter and son-in-law) in celebration of my 70th birthday. Suffice it to say, I had never stayed at a B&B before and was not sure what I was in for. We love Annapolis, for its restaurants, shopping, charming atmosphere, and its US Naval Academy, but we had never stayed overnight, as we live only an hour and a half away; it's a day trip for us. The Inn sent us a confirmation letter in advance, and an unsolicited listing of restaurants in the area and of activities taking place in town, and explicit directions for finding the Inn. On our very early arrival on the day of our reservation, we were greeted warmly and given a key to the Sequoia King Suite, which would be ready for us later that afternoon. We took a water taxi to town and went sightseeing at the Naval Academy, where -- incidentally-- we ran into (and chatted with) our hosts at the Inn. Later, upon returning to the Inn, we proceeded to our assigned room and were immediately and absolutely struck by its charm. It was roomy, filled with antiques, furnished in a lovely manner, and had a great King-sized bed (the mattress of which proved to be one of the most comfortable that I have ever slept in). There was a personalized welcome letter waiting for us on the bureau, and a card that allowed us to express certain preferences for breakfast the following morning. The suite was impeccably clean, comfortably air conditioned, had a lovely comforter and extra blankets if needed), was quiet (both within the home and with respect to street noise). That evening we dined at a terrific restaurant the host recommended to us, one that had a spectacular view of the waterfront and food that lived up to its reputation. In the morning, our breakfast preferences were waiting for us at the hour we designated, and the Inn's host welcomed us, introduced us to his 8-year-old daughter, and made a "baked" oatmeal that my wife requested the recipe for (it will be sent to us, as will the requested brand of the mattress). My wife and I had an absolutely fantastic time and would without reservations return to this Inn and recommend it to others. The Inn, and Annapolis, are both charming and welcoming, neither of which should be missed.

We visited Annapolis so our son could visit St. John's College. We are so glad we stayed at the Inn at Horn Point. What a comfortable king size bed we had. Our son had a very nice air bed. The Inn had excellent air conditioning which was quiet and worked extremely well even though the outside temperature both days was close to 100 degrees.

There was plenty of parking and we found the walk to Annapolis an easy 15 to 20 minute walk. We did not use our car once.

Breakfast was served beautifully.

We will stay again.
