Alexander House Booklovers B&B
The Alexander House Booklovers' Bed & Breakfast is a literary themed inn located in the quaint historic district of Princess Anne, Maryland. The colorful Queen Anne Victorian features authors' portraits, dramatic colors and whimsical literary details throughout.
Each room offers a realistic interpretation of a famous author's own room in his or her time. Immerse yourself in the jazzy Harlem Renaissance of the Langston Hughes Room; a 19th-Century high seas adventure in the Robert Louis Stevenson Room; or the romance of Regency England in the grand Jane Austen Room. Relax with a book from the eclectic library in the Mark Twain Reading Parlor. Partake of a gourmet breakfast, afternoon tea or evening liqueur in the charmingly French Cafe Colette.
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 estates, then meander along the water in Manokin River Park. Take a walk down the quaint main street - featuring antique, coffee and gift shops.
Nestled between the beach (Atlantic) and the Bay (Chesapeake), nearby nature attractions include Assateague and Chincoteague (35 minutes), where you can share the pristine, natural seashore with wild ponies.
Within minutes of various wildlife sanctuaries, rivers, waterways and marshes, where hundreds of bird species can be observed. Kayak and canoe rentals are available on the Pocomoke River or the Tangier Sound (opening to the Bay). A ferry boat ride away are Smith and Tangier Islands, where Colonial English/Welsh dialects are still spoken.
Innkeepers: Elizabeth and Peter Alexander.
Elizabeth Alexander is a retired journalist and teacher who now writes books and plays. Formerly, Peter was a professional woodworker and furniture maker (his work can be seen throughout the inn). Currently, he is an architectural and nautical draftsman/designer.
