Booklovers' B&B For Sale

The Alexander House Booklovers' B&B in a historic district on the eastern shore of Maryland is up for sale. Owner Elizabeth Alexander, who has successfully run the literary-themed inn for eight years, gaining national attention from BudgetTravel, The Today Show, Fodor's, and The Washington Post, must leave the business for health reasons, she told me by email earlier this week. The Victorian house has four bedrooms and four bathrooms (plus a shop within that sells antiquarian books).

For an asking price of $445,000, almost everything is included (antique furnishings, linens, cookware, dishes, etc.), even a week of innkeeper training. A photo tour, a property map, and more details are available on a website specifically set up for real estate purposes.
