We have enjoyed the two suites with attached baths and, as neither was available, we opted for the Academy Room on the second floor with its private bath a few steps down the hall. Both the room (which looks onto the Academy grounds) and bath are delightfully decorated in Navy blue and gold and we especially loved the cute bath with its coffered ceiling, mirrored portholes, lovely tile on floor and in the shower and the thick towels! Our hosts, Jody and Nick, couldn't be nicer and the breakfasts they provide are delicious! This morning we had fresh fruit in stemmed bowls, eggs baked in cups made of bacon, seasoned home fries, whole-grain toast, fresh tomato and great coffee all served on gold chargers on a beautifully set table. We are looking forward to our next USNA homecoming and enjoying the great location and wonderful hospitality at the Gatehouse Inn!!
