Neighborhood: Our street is a quiet alley street with historical significance. It was where Frederick Douglass built 5 homes that are still standing. On occasion a dressed up "Frederick Douglass" will come down with a tourist group to educate people on the significance of the street.

We are a young couple who enjoy meeting new people and hosting. He is an entrepreneur promoting art in Baltimore. She is a humanitarian. Together they enjoy food and wine. Ask about their world travels that include Beirut, Istanbul, Phnom Penh, Hanoi, and Santiago. We look forward to meeting you and hope you enjoy our home!
We had an absolutely wonderful time staying with Jenn and Scott. They were wonderfully flexible about our arrival time and we couldn't have been happier with the location! It was a perfect walk down to the Inner Harbor. Scott had some great recommendations of where to go out after dinner, and they were all spot on! My only regret is that we weren't able to stay longer!
Can't wait to come back during the warmer months and spend some time in their gorgeous back yard!
Had a great time at Scott and Jen's! Both of them are extremely lovely people, very accommodating with requests and even let me dig into their food supply when I was running low on my end
Would definitely return here should I need to come back to Baltimore :)
Scott and Jenn have a beautiful home. They're fun, helpful, cool people. This was my first AirBnB experience as a guest and I'd stay with them again in a heartbeat. I recommend this place a gazillion times over.
The house is located on a small street (South Dallas) near the intersection of Eastern Avenue and South Caroline, and it is within a short walking distance of downtown and the Inner Harbor. Although Scott and Jen weren't there when I arrived, check-in (via text) was quick and simple. On my first night, Scott recommended (also via text) that I try a local pub and restaurant, One-Eyed Mike's, where I was greeted by the friendly bartender almost immediately, and was purchased a shot of Grande Marnier by a nice local sitting at the bar. The house is clean, the bed was warm and comfortable, and Jen was kind enough cook a small breakfast and allow me to use her iron to press my shirt for an important interview.
Scott and Jen are - there's no better way to say it - a very cool couple, who are both passionate about and adept at what they do. I only regret that I was unable to chat with them for longer during my stay.
Scott and Jenn were the perfect hosts and their home truly is a sweet gem in the heart of all that Charm City has to offer. It's got beautiful outdoor spaces and a cityscape view of Baltimore. The room was very spacious and the house was as advertised. I also enjoyed how close it was to everything; it's within walking distance to several shops, restaurants, bars, and other social scenes, as well as cafes and a grocery store too. If you're looking for a nice place to stay, wonderful hosts, and all the perks of city life, this is the place for you.
It was very easy to arrange to stay with Scott & Jenn, I was able to make arrangements only a few days before a last minute trip. It was extremely easy to communicate with them prior to my arrival to ensure one of them was at home when I arrived. Scott gave me a nice tour of the house when I arrived, including a print-out of key information (including for wi-fi access). I was not able to meet Jenn, but I imagine she would have been similarly welcoming. They have a beautiful house and very large and tidy guest home, which I stayed in. Overall, my experience was wonderful. I did not stay very long, arrived late at night, left before sunrise, but I would certainly stay there again if I am ever in Baltimore.
Nice location and very friendly host. Thanks so much!
Scott and Jennifer's house is gorgeous and I wish we had more time there. A particularly nice bathroom! Near a large bakery so as soon as you step out of the door you are greeted by the smell of freshly baked bread. The house is perfectly located for Fells Point which is a really fun area of Baltimore with good bars and places to eat. We hope to return next time Josh has a family do in Baltimore.
Scott and Jen were fantastic hosts. Their home is in an ideal location, near to good dining options and activities, and both Scott and Jen were full of good ideas for places to go and things to do. The room itself is very comfortable and quite. I wish I could have spent more time there!
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in Baltimore; Scott and Jennifer were welcoming hosts, and the location of their lovely apartment was super close to everything, and Baltimore has a lot to see and enjoy! I stayed a couple of days past a conference to explore this interesting city, and can't wait to make a return visit with my husband. I will definitely make every effort to stay at Scott and Jennifer's great place the next visit!
