Welcome to the historic Charles Inn

The Charles InnFor the past two decades we have offered a unique bed and breakfast experience in our Civil War era home in the heart of Historic Annapolis.

Some of you may know that my wife, Paula Jeanne, battled ALS for several years.  Due to my wife’s failing health, we reluctantly closed our doors during that late phase of her illness.  Paula lost her struggle with ALS on October 12, 2013 and has joined the Choir of Angels. May her memory be eternal.

The Charles Inn and serving her guests was Paula’s life and greatest joy. For this, she happily sacrificed. One of her last wishes was to see the Charles Inn back in operation, offering the quality bed and breakfast service to which our clients have become accustomed. To this end, I have taken on the challenge of learning to cook at a level that would come close to meeting the high standards Paula set for the Inn.

I am happy to report that I am now capable of producing breakfasts that will satisfy your morning hunger after a restful sleep at The Charles Inn. Everything is in place for your reservation … let us accommodate your stay! 

We are taking reservations for immediate occupancy and hope to see all our loyal guests again soon. Of course, new guests will also be welcomed with the same warmth we offer everyone. Call us to make your reservation without delay.
