The Far East room is located on the third floor and overlooks the main entrance, the pedestrian entrance and the dome of the Chapel of the U.S. Naval Academy . Maximum occupancy is two people in this room

This room is on same side of the house as Water Witch, for groups wanting more than 1 room.

Room darkening shades, air conditioning, and a multi-speed ceiling fan add to your comfort. The room has a private bath en suite with shower in its own room, free wi-fi & cable TV. The room comes with free parking onsite for one car, a rarity in downtown Annapolis.

The decoration is reminiscent of the United States’ naval presence in the Far East before the Second World War. An evocative and lovely limited edition print by Tom Freeman, “Far Yangtse Station,” pictures the USS Turtulia standing watch on the river at Chungking, China, in 1939, with the town rising behind it as a Chinese junk and smaller craft glide past. The print is beautifully mounted in a soft gold bamboo style frame and softly lighted at night by an overhead picture light. The room is papered in an aubergine colored documented eighteenth-century toile print in the chinoiserie style of the period when Chinese design was all the rage. The border is an eighteenth-century Chinese Chippendale fretwork design faithfully copied in the radiator cover .

The room has an aubergine love seat and good seat-side lighting for reading. A tall antique Chinese chest contains a television. The custom made king-size bed’s headboard and dust ruffle duplicate the wallpaper print, as do the cornices in the dormer windows. The bed has bronze-finished swing arm lamps on either side for nighttime reading.
