About Jo Lynn & Bob Sheehan

We have lived in this home since 1989 and have raised our family here. The original house was built in the 1930's and we completely renovated in 2006.

We are happy to share the Annapolis experience in the heart of the Chesapeake Bay with you and your friends and family!

Jo Lynn & Bob Sheehan purchased this house in 1989

Why Jo Lynn & Bob Sheehan chose Annapolis

Corner Lot with loads of parking ( no permit required) and children's park just around the corner. This property is also just a 2 hour ride to Ocean City MD, and less than an hour to our Nations Capital and the Baltimore Inner Harbor. Go visit the Maryland state capital and take a tour of old Annapolis.

What makes this house unique

Great walking town with lots of bike paths. Truxton park offers a boat ramp with kayak and stand up paddle board rentals and wooded walking trails along Spa Creek. Go grab a coffee at Maryland Hall (2 blocks away) and stay to look at art work and listen to the evening summer concert series or watch the 4th of July parade from our front door! Quiet Waters park offers ice skating in the winter, wooded walking trails and boat rentals in the Spring, Summer and Fall. Come for the Parade of Boats in December.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a perfect place for our company retreat! The home was welcoming, beautifully decorated and immaculate. The well-stocked kitchen and outdoor grilling/dining areas were wonderful for relaxing at the end of the day, and we even utilized the space for the morning portion of our meeting. Although there were many near-by restaurants, we never left the property! The owners were incredibly accommodating, and the welcome note and fresh flowers kicked off our stay on a great note. We will happily refer others to this property. And I bet we'll be back! Thank you so much!

Wonderful home for entertaining

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying in this home during a college reunion weekend in Annapolis. The large, open first floor made hosting gatherings for friends easy and fun. The large Living / Dining rooms flow seamlessly into a beautifully manicured and appointed backyard which was a joy to stay in. Plenty of space for friends to chat, play games, enjoy a cup of coffee, etc. The high quality kitchen also makes entertaining a breeze.

The sleeping accommodations in the home were also very nice. The master bedroom was truly a treat for those staying there, with a large and relaxing master bath and balcony overlooking the yard, and the other bedrooms are spacious and distant enough from each other to offer some privacy. The downstairs would be a haven for any guests with children - plush comfortable couches with entertainment options and attached cozy bedroom.

The neighborhood provided easy access to all things Annapolis, but is still a quiet neighborhood that lets its guests unwind and relax as needed. A real gem of a home in Annapolis!

Perfect Spot for a Large Family Get-Together

  • 5 of 5

We rented the Sheehan's lovely home the weekend of June 25. We also rented another home closer to downtown as we were too large a family group for one property. The arrangement worked out beautifully! The Shhehan's home is large, open and wonderfully inviting. The back deck and yard opened up the whole house so people could flow easily from one area to another. They have thoughtfully put small seating arrangements throughout the yard so more intimate gatherings can also take place.

Everything was in working order, extremely clean and, most of all, comfortable! Parking was much easier than at the other house we rented. I ordered catering from Whole Foods for both evening meals and it was excellent and so easy. Our family has asked we make this a tradition as Annapolis is so convenient to many of them. Thank you so much JoLynn for working with this Montana girl to make this happen!

Coffee Bar Says it All

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing home and we had a great stay. We were able to walk downtown for the afternoon and visit some shops and have lunch. The kitchen island is the perfect gathering spot for everyone at breakfast or after dinner. The coffee bar is the perfect example of the owners thinking of every detail in this home to make your stay comfortable. There was plenty of room for everyone here. So many bedrooms and bathrooms!

Spacious and clean home.

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely home and thoughtful owners. We rented this large home for about a week while attending our daughter's wedding. When we arrived we had a note, fresh flowers, and a bottle of champagne awaiting. The house is spacious and clean. It accommodates many with 4 bedrooms having their own bathroom. The only issue was we had no use of the closets. We had suits and gowns to hang but no closets were available to use. They have a great yard for relaxing and grilling.

The home has plenty of free parking and was within walking distance to downtown.

Perfect Girls Weekend Location

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely perfect house and location for a girls getaway. The house was ideal for our group of 9 with even some room to spare. " Hanging out" space was exactly what we needed and there was plenty of it. The kitchen with a large island was just lovely with plenty of space for cooking as well as visiting. Having a large dining room round table that seats 10 was so great since nobody got lost at one end of the table. A round table makes it so easy to keep everyone in the conversation -- we did not want to miss a single story! A huge plus was the fact that the Fall weather gave us beautiful evenings to enjoy the patio deck ( and backyard with grill -- -it does work! )which also had plentiful seating for either cocktails or for dining for 10. Bedrooms were comfortable and most had private bathrooms. While the bedroom in the basement with 2 twin beds was the least fancy -- pretty basic with beds and bathroom - it was worked fine for us.

The whole experience was so easy, and the homeowners were so attentive to our requests JoLynn has a wonderful decorating style at the house. You really feel like you have come for a visit with a friend. I walked in and the stereo had cool jazz playing and a bottle of wine was waiting for us on the kitchen counter! It is a warm and welcoming home with all the amenities you could need.

An added bonus we discovered is that there is a water taxi that can drop you off 2 blocks from the house -- and it can take you to downtown Annapolis in about 5 minutes. Avoid parking hassle and take the water taxi -- with one quick call they are there at the Park entrance. Murray Hill is as described -- a lovely quiet, historic neighborhood. Thank you for sharing your home on VRBO -- we loved being together -- and your house, the space and the proximity to town all made it a great getaway! Thank you -- just loved the whole experience!
