In the Historic District of Princess Anne, Maryland

Escape from the tense world of traffic and television, come down in time to a place that celebrates books and authors. The Alexander House Booklovers B & B is set in a lovingly restored Victorian house filled with books, music and a sense of relaxation and whimsy (no tvs, just lots of books and free wifi).

Enjoy a relaxing stroll through the historic district of Princess Anne, teeming with lovingly preserved historic homes from the Colonial, Federal and Victorian eras. Walk to the nearby Teackle Mansion for a tour of one of Maryland’s beautiful historic manses, then meander along the water in Manokin River Park. Take a walk down the quaint main street–featuring antique and gift shops.

Local events include the annual Chesapeake Celtic Festival on the first weekend in October, the Seagull Century Bicycle Ride and the Annual Skipjack Races on Labor Day Weekend.

Nestled between the beach (Atlantic) and the Bay (Chesapeake), nearby nature attractions include Assateague and Chincoteague (35 minute drive), where you can share the pristine, natural seashore with wild ponies. Or for some really wild night life, there’s always Ocean City, a 40 minute drive away. Within minutes of various wildlife sanctuaries, rivers, waterways and marshes, where hundreds of bird species can be observed. Kayak and canoe rentals are available in town on the Manokin River, in Snow Hill on the Pocomoke River or at Janes Island State Park on the Tangier Sound (opening to the Bay). A ferry boat ride away are Smith Island and Tangier Islands, where ancient Colonial English/Cornish dialects are still spoken.

We feel pampered and ready to return to the ‘real world’. A great way to spend my birthday.

It is indeed a cozy place with character. But the best part of staying here is the food and Elizabeth’s generous hospitality. This place is a great representation of the Eastern Shore. Unpretentious, friendly and comfortable.
