There is a great gym on the water that offers guest passes, if interested. Lovely neighborhood gem cafe's and restaurants are within walking distance.
Transport around city- MTA bus stop under 2 blocks away. Green Route Circulator is about 7 blocks away, Downtown Convention Center is 1.7 (walking) miles away. Zip car station a few blocks away. Parking gets tight after 7pm, however, I always find parking with my mini-cooper. If you're renting a car, get a sub-compact.

Great Corner market one block away. Stand up shower, no tub. There is also a Keurig machine,an iron and a hair dryer in the home. Laundry mat is 1.5 blocks away.
Unfortunately, we do not accept pets.
This is a rather private space. While we are friendly and conversations are lovely, we take the feel from the guests. We're sorta busy people as well, so sometimes we hardly see our visitors at all.
A lot of people who stay here simply want a home base and have an agenda which doesn't leave tons of time to interact. However, in warm months, were always out bbq'ing, chilling in the main courtyard and many times guests choose to hang. It's really up to you.

Laurie was great--very quick to respond and very accommodating. The neighborhood is nice and walking distance to great restaurants by the water and a short cab ride to the Convention Center.
We stayed in Laurie's private guest house in Baltimore last night and it was PRIVATE! Perfect!! We stayed in a little guest house behind her home. It is very wonderfully quiet! The home is an older Baltimore home in an established Baltimore neighborhood. The home looks just like the pictures. Bathroom is little but perfect. It had everything we needed, I borrowed the hairdryer. We used the air conditioner because it was a warm night. That worked fine too. We had trouble finding a parking spot because we arrived so late in the evening. Laurie came home from her night out and had saved us a spot right in front of her home with another car and she gave us the spot when she got home. We were only at Laurie's home for a very short time since we were in town for business, however, her home was just what we needed. She also has a very sweet dog that greeted us in the private back courtyard. That was a bonus :) Thank you so much Laurie!
Beautiful property and guest house. Sweet dog named Dante.
Laurie and Andre are really nice people. They are great at communicating, and we felt really welcome! The location is perfect. You can walk to everything. We really enjoyed our stay. The one thing is that the garden in the photos is the owners' garden. There's a small separate garden for the use of guests that isn't as open, but it's still nice to have outdoor space. We would stay here again. Thank you!
We had a great time in Fells Point. The place was great and in walking distance to everything. The restaurant recommendations that Laurie made were great! The apartment is exactly how it's described and how it looks in the pictures, perfect for a couples getaway!
