The Alexander House Booklovers' Bed & Breakfast is a literary-themed inn located in the quaint historic district of Princess Anne on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. The colorful Queen Anne Victorian features authors' portraits, dramatic colors and whimsical literary details throughout.Each room offers a creative interpretation of a famous author's own room in his or her time. Revel in the romance of Regency England in the Jane Austen Room. Immerse yourself in the jazzy Harlem Renaissance of the Langston Hughes Room; or a 19th-century high seas adventure in the Robert Louis Stevenson Room. Relax with a book from our eclectic library in the Mark Twain Library and Parlor. Partake of a hearty breakfast, afternoon tea or evening liqueur in the charmingly French Cafe Colette. All rooms have private bathrooms. 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, coffee and gift shops, eateries.Local events include the annual Chesapeake Celtic Festival on the first weekend in October, (see link on local sights page) and the Annual Skipjack Races on Labor Day Weekend (local events link). Olde Princess Anne Days is celebrated in October with home and garden tours, carriage rides, street fair and more. Click on the Calendar of Events link on the Local Sights page for more annual events.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 30 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 on the Pocomoke River or the Tangier Sound (opening to the Bay). A ferry boat ride away are Smith Island and Tangier Islands, where Colonial English/Cornish dialects are still spoken.
