Tommy and I stayed at the Gatehouse Bed & Breakfast in Annapolis this past weekend. It was a very pleasant and relaxing experience. I thought the owners, a husband and wife, were very nice and helpful. The property, a town home, with 5 bedrooms, was beautiful. It was just steps away from the Naval Academy.
We stayed in the Capitol View Mini-Suite.
The breakfast on Sunday was simple, but tasty. I couldn’t help but comment to Tommy on this: from my past B&B experiences as a kid traveling with my parents and Marshall on various occasions, I remembered breakfasts at B&Bs to be RIDICULOUS. Mounds and mounds of delicious food at your fingertips or constantly being served to you. I am talking breakfast breads, quiches, fruit, tarts, pancakes, waffles, etc. The breakfast at the Gatehouse wasn’t this. And I can’t decide if maybe my memory is exaggerating a little or if the size of breakfast was due to the B&B we stayed (the husband had mentioned that he and his wife sort of fell into the B&B business and had never stepped foot in one, besides their own, themselves). I guess I’ll have to stay at another B&B in the area again for comparison!
We had a very nice breakfast and we talked to the other couple staying at the B&B. It is Commission Week this week (Naval Academy graduation) in Annapolis and the couple had rented out the entire B&B for the whole week for graduation festivities for their son. So Tommy and I were really lucky to get our room on Saturday night!
All in all we had a very nice stay at the Gatehouse. While I certainly would stay here again if I ever overnighted in Annapolis again, I would probably want to try somewhere new just for another experience.
