  • My Girlfriend and I truly enjoyed our stay with Scott and Jennifer. They were an awesome host and their home is so beautiful. Being in a city for the first time, it really helped to have such an inviting couple and place to stay. I wish them the best!

  • Our stay was great. Scott and Jennifer were very nice and helpful. We had a pretty busy few days so we didn't really get a chance to talk much, but they were very nice when we did. They gave us information on the easiest way to catch the train and best bus routes. The location was perfect. We were able to walk to nearby places like fells point, Camden yards, inner harbor and Canton. I would stay here again for the location and the very nice hosts.

  • A very comfortable place in a great location. Scott and Jennifer are friendly and helpful hosts. A great AirB&B experience.

  • Beautiful welcoming space… Scott and Jenn were kind helpful hosts. They even made us coffee and muffins in the morning. House was very clean and comfortable. This was the perfect location to stay in Fells Point. I was getting work done at the Baltimore Tattoo Museum which was 50’ away

  • Scott and Jennifer's apartment is conveniently located, walking distance to good bars and restaurants. The garden is lovely, the room spacious enough with a comfy bed. Communication was clear and easy, so much so that I didn't even meet my host until my 3rd and final day. What a great guy: Scott is a true Baltimorian, an artist who knows and loves and is invested in the city. Cheers!

  • I enjoyed staying at Scott and Jenn’s cosy row house in Fells Point for 8 nights. The interior was inviting, functional and nicely decorated, with a great bathroom. Scott and Jenn were most of the time out of the house or in their room, but the few interactions I had with them were always pleasant. Scott was nice enough to lend me his bike and not be upset when I came back later than anticipated. The place is in general quiet, except for trucks backing up to the nearby bakery in the early morning. I made breakfast myself with what they happen to have. When we ran out of milk, Scott gave me money to buy more myself. I did not mind taking care of my breakfast needs myself, but I was not expecting to that extent.

  • Very friendly and competent young professionals who introduce quick and effective in every day aspects of Baltimore as well as in some secrets.

  • Didn't end up staying with these two but wanted to point out that when there was a mix up with booking they we're really cool about getting everything sorted and reimbursed. Solid people.

    March 2014
  • 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!

    March 2014
  • 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 :)
