Trip Advisor Oasis of quiet in the bustle of the city

This garden was a real little gem. It is a beautiful recreation of Paca's original garden, in a formal 18th century style. Just lovely!

Trip Advisor Great house of a signer of the Declaration

Just to hear about the heroic restoration alone is worth the trip. Excellent guide. Knows a lot about the house and answered all questions. But the gardens are unbelievable. Wonderful. Worth the eight dollar admission.

Trip Advisor Wedding Venue

"Hidden Gardens" in Annapolis. We had our Memorial Day weekend wedding reception in the garden. The house and garden are amazing. many of our local guests didn't know about the gardens behind the historic home. The home and gardens are a must tour while in Annapolis. The home was William Paca's a singer to the Declaration of Independence.

Trip Advisor Lovely mansion and gardens in old Annapolis

Beautiful gardens although the heat of the day kept us from too much wandering there. Nice little gift shop, well priced. Mansion tour was excellent and interesting. Good attention to period detail. Well trained, articulate and friendly docent -- great job Rachelle!

Trip Advisor Sorry, but it was disappointing : (

Perhaps my expectations were too high. After all, we visited near the garden end of August. (I should note that we did not tour the house, only the garden). There's a $5.00 charge per person to enter the garden. It took us perhaps 30 minutes to walk through it. Described as a British formal garden by the lady working there, aside from the design of the garden there wasn't' much else that resembled the formal gardens that I have visited in England. There was little colour. Summer flowers were sparse. It was disappointing but as I mentioned we visited near the end of August; I expect that in the spring and early summer more colour from the roses would make the garden more vibrant.
