The sweeping view of The Anchorage called Commodore Jacob Jones home from his many voyages at sea where he earned reward from Congress for his heroics battling Barbary pirates and chasing down ships of His Royal Majesty’s service 200 years ago.
Originally built in 1710 by the Lusby family, the Commodore added extensively to The Anchorage in 1835 including the 2 1/2 story Georgian main house with paneled front door and fanlight, wide plank floors and elaborate wood moldings-all lovingly preserved. The 1710 portion of the Anchorage is presented in the classic Williamsburg style for guests to enjoy in our dining area, with the rest of the Anchorage paying homage to the Georgian period the good Commodore favored.
The Anchorage offers guests to your wedding/event 11 bedrooms, including a two bedroom suite, many with jetted tubs and added luxuries, all heated and air conditioned. Enjoy cocktail hour around our pool or in the comfort of the enclosed porch, the Chesapeake Bay Room. You will also have access to three acres of manicured grounds for a beautiful outdoor ceremony, parking, and unmatched settings for photographs.
Intimate indoor weddings/events for up to 40 people may be held inside and larger outdoor weddings are limited in number only by your imagination or guest list. Parking is available on site.
