The Space

Small guest house (no larger than 300 sq ft between two floors) with it's own yard in Upper Fells Point, Baltimore. Guest House is a several blocks from Johns Hopkins Hospital, Green Route Circulator, Fells Point Water Taxi, and many restaurants and shops.

Great residential neighborhood which is close to Thames St, Butcher's Hill, Canton. The best backyard, Patterson Park, is a few blocks away. The park has large playground, duck pond, bike paths, historical relevance, ice skating, sports fields, swimming pool, gardens, and the pagoda which offers incredible views of the city. 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 (website hidden) 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.

Owners live in another home on this gated premises. We have two dogs. Guest house is very private with own entrance and fenced yard with gas grill. Home includes small loft style 2nd floor bedroom, window AC, cable w/HBO, efficiency kitchen and sitting area on the first floor, kitchen has cooking staples to make your stay more convenient. 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 super cool and the place was cozy, private and well done. I wouldn't hesitate for a second to go back next time I'm in Baltimore. Very short walk to the heart of Fells or Canton.

  • The experience was great. The guest house is in a perfect location for Fells Point and the Inner Harbor. Laurie accommodated our late night arrival. The house is wonderful--I think it's perfect for Airbnb. It is its own private little house in the back of a larger house on a charming Baltimore street.

  • Laurie was a great hostess. Not only was the little house cool and convenient, but she had awesome outdoor toys for my nine year old, she had great suggestions of fun things to do and we even hung out a bit on my last night and got along great. Baltimore was an awesome and fun destination and we want to go back and are definitely interested in staying in the lovely little guest house when we do.

  • Laurie was a great host - extremely responsive and helpful! Our weekend plans were pretty busy during our stay, so we mostly just used the guest house for sleeping - although the private outdoor space looked great, and we really appreciated having coffee available in the mornings. Was a good stay, thanks!

  • Laurie was a great host and my parents enjoyed their vacation at the cute little guesthouse. It has everything you need and the neighborhood is charming. Thanks!

  • Laurie was a Great Host. Great space and only 15 minutes to NOSC Baltimore and 5 minute taxi to Little Italy. Take her advice if you can't find a space to park. I didn't and drove around for 45 minutes. So then I called her and was in a space in less than 5! Cute and cuddly pit bull mix (I think). He would have come right in if I'd let him.

  • I had a great stay at Laurie's cute little guesthouse! I was in town for an event at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, and it was perfect to be 15 minutes walking from the school (I only did the walk during the day, but it was easy to use Uber to get around at night).

    The apartment has everything you need for a short stay including a coffee maker, wifi, and a comfy bed. The neighborhood is charming, and Laurie was easy to connect with/helpful.

  • Wonderful place. Would not hesitate to return. Great location, Laurie was very nice.
    My only minor complaint: the internet was a bit spotty (Netflix would pause and restart once or twice during a movie, generally slow internet). This was very minor.

  • Laurie was great. She answered all of my questions very quickly and the guest house was very cute and well taken care of.

  • Laurie and Andre are an absolute delight and the guest house is perfect. We were in complete awe of the smart use of space and how comfortable and homey 300 square feet could feel. Loved everything about it. I would definitely stay there again. Thanks for having us!
