We toured the house, which was fun with all of the people in period costumes in each room. The house is wonderfully restored. They had a violinist playing Christmas songs which was quite festive. No photos in the house, and of course the garden wasn't...More

We stopped in for a tour of the Paca house and garden. We were visiting in early December, so the garden was not at all in its glory. Still, we enjoyed wandering around and seeing the layout. The holly garden was still looking good. Of...More

It was nice exploring the gardens, but the house was mediocre and not really different than any other period home. Not really worth the $10.

Compared to some of the formal gardens of Europe, the garden is rather small, but it definitely charming. I would love to see the rose garden when the roses are in full bloom. There’s a wide variety of flowers, shrubs and even fruit and vegetables...More

Enjoyed this tour. Guide was very informative about the house and early life in colonial Maryland. Great restoration on the house. Nice gardens. Would have been better in the spring when garden was in full swing. Worth a visit anytime.

The location hosts this event once a year. There is no parking locally so, scope out where you plan to park before hand. The staff is friendly and while the grounds are not a "wow", they are nice and I can see this being a...More

I attended an outdoor wedding at Paca House and I can't think of a more beautiful and romantic setting. The grounds are beautiful and the boxwood smell amazing. There is a walkway from the back of the house directly to an arch which makes a...More

I walked over from the Downtown area. There really is no good parking. You will probably have to park a couple blocks away or by the pier. Sometimes you find parking along the shops, but I would no suggest parking there... More
