Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Beautiful, spacious loft-style apartment in barn on historic farm 25 miles northwest of Baltimore. Quiet, lovely, and peaceful, surrounded on all sides by farmland in conservation. Perfect for a relaxing, tranquil getaway, but within easy commute to Baltimore metro area.

The space
The apartment is the ideal getaway, providing privacy and tranquility. It has great views, looking out onto 100 acres of conserved farmland. The loft-style apartment is spacious and rustic, and is furnished with cozy antiques.

The first floor has a large open living room, dining area & kitchen. A woodburning stove is in the LR, and guests receive a complimentary bundle of wood from the hosts (in season). The modern kitchen has a stainless stove, fridge, and dishwasher -- but no garbage disposal, as we're on a septic system. The main bathroom has recently been upgraded, and contains a stackable W&D for light loads. The living room couch pulls out into a sleeper. The 2nd floor loft area contains a library. The 3rd floor has a bedroom with antique double bed and 1/2 bath. Bedroom has wall unit AC/heater.

There is a small balcony outside the kitchen overlooking a walled flower garden.

Birdwatching is fabulous, and a large library is provided on the second floor for readers. Free Wifi is available. There is a large selection of DVD movies, and the Smart TV streams Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, and the Internet. Guests may walk the 6-acre grounds, where you'll find a huge array of flowers and plants and some old trees of historic proportions, including one of the biggest beech trees in the state.

Location

Reisterstown, Maryland, United States

Our 6-acre farm is just at the outer reaches of the NW Baltimore suburbs, 25 miles from Baltimore, in northern Reisterstown. The town of Reisterstown, 4 miles away, has an historic downtown. Westminster, 10 miles north, has a larger historic downtown and is home to McDaniel College. Both towns have nice restaurants and other local attractions. Just south of Reisterstown are Owings Mills and Pikesville, large metropolitan suburbs of Baltimore, which have a large variety of restaurants and shopping. Owings Mills has a subway station (only 15 min away) that travels into downtown Baltimore. We are only about 20-25 min from Pimlico racetrack in NW Baltimore.

Other area attractions include Gettsburg which is only 35 miles north, Washington DC, which is approximately 50 miles away, and many Maryland and Pennsylvania attractions, including historic sites, the Carroll County Almshouse & Farm Museum, the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival (20 min. away) orchards, parks, hiking, antiques, flea markets, and local ice cream. We provide guests with an extensive list of local resources and favorite food stops.
