The Space

Perhaps you are coming to Baltimore for a training, seminar, or conference? Or perhaps, you are coming for our wacky art scene; Artscape, Hon Fest, or the High Zero Festival? Or perhaps you are looking for a "home base" from which you can take day trips to DC, Philly, & even NY?

You have found the perfect place!

I'd love to host you during your visit to Baltimore, and the mid-Atlantic region. My house is centrally located near the campus of both Morgan State & Johns Hopkins University, with countless other universities and hospitals in close proximity. My house is also located very near Amtrak's Pennsylvania Train Station and Bolt Bus stop.

My house is vibrantly decorated with artwork and plants. We will share the kitchen and bathroom but your room is private, clean, bright and simply furnished; with a single bed, desk, lamps, two windows, and a large closet. For those with cars, there is always ample parking on the street, but for those without, there is also a grocery store within walking distance. Either way, feel free to cook your meals.

Nothing beats a bike, and I have one you can use! For those who prefer your feet, please know that most Baltimore City bus lines converge in the area and will enable you to explore our distinct neighborhoods.

During your stay, you can also easily visit the Baltimore Museum of Art within minutes, get some exercise at the YMCA or jog around Lake Montebello daily, and visit the year-round Waverly farmer's market on Saturday morning.

That's just the quick description. Please contact me with any questions you may have.

  • I am a medical student and i got to stay in Amy s house for one month, i really enjoyed it, Amy made everything so easy, she was very helpful, she gave a lot of tips if i needed to go anywhere.
    She also had a bike that was available whenever i needed to go anywhere in Baltimore.
    The room was quite, very well decorated so is the whole house, the internet was available for my whole stay, you get everything in this house : laundry room, dryer, anything u might need on daily basis, i would recommend it for anyone who needs a place to live that is close to union memorial hospital and even johns hopkins. The price was good and i can remember anything negative about my accomodation choice

  • Amy is an adorable person and was very helpful. She waited for me in her car for 2 hours on the first day, because I had problems with the train.
    Room is exactly as pictured and the bed is comfortable!
    Shower is good.
    The house is near from giants grocery (5 minutes walking), union memorial hospital (10 minutes walking).
    I didn't have problems to park the car in front of the house.
    Wash machine and dryer was good.
    The internet was slow, but she was trying to fix it (march 15, probably it's better now).
    Good host, price and room!
    Thanks Amy!

  • She is a nice person but I would not stay there again so I cannot give a recommendation for you.
    The internet service she has is of very poor quality, I was there for 29 days and never able to connect at any time while in her home, very annoying.

  • I have been in Baltimore for a conference in the Baltimore Convention Centre and Amys house was a really good place to stay for the five nights. The room is clean and quiet and the transportable Hotspot worked fine with my hardware. It took me 10-15 minutes to come to the Convention Centre (Taxi, 12-15 $) which seems fine to me if I consider the prices one has to pay for the hotels downtown. But the most important thing about Amys place is Amy: She is a really open minded and uncomplicated person. We had a lot of great conversations about politics, city development and economics but also about personal stufff, which creates an intimate atmosphere. On my first night, Amy and a friend took me out and showed me some places in the cizty, we had dinner and went to abar after that. We also had dinner on my last night. All in all I felt warmly welcomed and Amy was always attainable if I had a question. The only thing one could be concerned of is the widened neighborhood of Amys house. Personally, I felt safe and - as I said - expereinced the whole area as a really quiet and good one.

  • Amy was a really sweet host. She made me feel very welcomed in her house. The room is relatively clean, cozy and comfortable. My only complaint is that the Internet didn't really work.. It's through a plugged-in hot-spot and it would take about 30-40 seconds to even just open a webpage. And even that didn't work half the time I was there. So if you're someone that needs a fast Internet connection for your laptop, just be warned! I wish I had known that before I reserved the place since that was an issue for me. The kitchen is clean but there are ants everywhere so you can't leave any food outside (even fruits would be covered with ants if I left anything in the cabinet!). Street parking wasn't an issue since there were usually spots available.

  • I stayed with Amy recently for 2 months. She was very helpful with everything since it was my first trip to USA! She even got an extra bike to house for her guests to borrow. I didn't have a car so using the bike to get to nearby Johns Hopkins shuttle stop was convenient. There are also city bus stops very close that makes it easy to get around.
    The house was so nicely decorated! It felt like home there. I warmly recommend Amy!

  • Amy has a very nice place and she was very helpful with information about Baltimore and very kind in giving a ride to a couple of places.

  • I stayed with Amy recently while attending a political identity conference in Baltimore. It was clear from our initial correspondence that she would be a very welcoming and pleasant host - and no doubt she was. She is super nice, easygoing, and happy to share her knowledge of the city. The house itself is very comfortable - spacious and clean rooms with plenty of amenities. Neighborhood seemed nice too. If traveling to Baltimore in the future, I would definitely consider staying with Amy again.

  • Amy is such a warm and knowledgeable host, and her place looks like a doll house! It was great staying in a traditional Baltimore rowhouse, it really added to the feel of the experience. I am very into decor, and Amy has really done a fantastic job with the colors and the design of the place, it is very cheerful yet relaxing. The room is simple but nice and I felt very at home in it. It might be easiest to get around from here by car or bike, but there is a bus that is only about 3-4 blocks away that takes you right downtown, to the Inner Harbor, and to Charles Street, which I found very convenient, although like any urban city the neighborhood can change block by block, so the walk to and from the bus might not be for everyone. Amy mentioned that there are some other buses for Johns Hopkins that are also close by. There is just a short distance between Amy's house and downtown, so when I was out late and elected to take a cab home it did not cost much at all. Amy really took the time to give me tips on what the locals do, which was great b/c I was able to really check out some great neighborhood spots in addition to my list of touristy must-dos. I truly found Amy's home to be fantastically charming and I consider Amy a friend now that I will definitely look up next time I am on the East Coast.

  • My stay with Amy was great! She was friendly, accommodating and went above and beyond to welcome me to Baltimore and get me settled in. The room was clean and comfortable and I had everything I needed to feel at home. I highly recommend staying here if you're in Baltimore. Thanks again!

About
I am an independent film maker with a passion for documentaries. I live in Baltimore because it's both vibrant and affordable; my family is also nearby. I think local and also global. In my spare time I love to check out art galleries, photograph everything, hike, bike, run, practice yoga, and enjoy a variety of seasonal as well as ethnic foods. As your host, I'll help you get oriented quickly and let you know about fun things going on around town.
