Very nice house, old-style but clean and well maintained. 2 bedrooms, but have to walk through one of the rooms to get to the bathroom.
The Traveler's House is adorable. It was super clean and very sweetly decorated. The house is a 5-10 min walk to downtown Frederick, which is quite charming. Nancy was helpful and very welcoming. This is a great place to stay!
Nancy was wonderful! We stayed for two nights for a bachelorette party. The house was lovely - everything you could want was available (the location was excellent) and Nancy went above and beyond to make us feel at home. We would definitely stay here again!
Great spot in downtown Frederick! Location is in a quite neighborhood and is within easy walking distance to parks and downtown nightlife.
Apartment is comfortable and well appointed with everything you would need.
I arrived late and Nancy was very accommodating with check in/out.
I'm only sorry I found her place at the end of my contract instead of at the beginning! Would absolutely stay again.
The Traveler's house provides wonderful accommodations in Downtown Frederick. Whether you are spending just a couple days or a whole month, this is the place to stay in the heart of the historic district. The host, Nancy, is super friendly and offers a very hospitable stay providing just about everything you could ever want or need in your home away from home. The house is in walking distance to some of Frederick's most renowned restaurants and local watering holes. It is safe, cozy, and a superbly welcoming experience. Would recommend to any and all travelers near and far!

About the Host, Nancy
I am a Life enthusiast, event planner and travel junkie who fell in love with Frederick decades ago and who still thinks it is one of the most charming small towns in the USA. I love sharing Frederick with visitors.
I also love to champion creativity of all kinds.
I can't live without laughter, friends, good books, curiosity and candor.
Life is a gift - both the ups AND downs.
Come see us here in a Great American Main Street town!
