Guest Suite with private entrance

House - Private room · Tanglewood Rd, Catonsville, MD 21228, United States

The Space

A beautiful guest suite with private entrance, large bedroom, queen size bed with a very good mattress, and a full private bath with Jacuzzi Tub. The bedroom has French doors that overlook an enclosed backyard and woods. There is a wooded walking trail behind the house. It is a friendly neighborhood where we know most of the neighbors. Guests may watch TV with a DVR for movies or share a large flat screen TV, including Wii and Netflix for streaming movies. A washer and dryer are available and easily assessable, next to the guest suite. In the utility room we also have a microwave, toaster oven, coffee maker and a small refrigerator. Free secure wireless is available.

Our Home includes a two year old Golden Retriever and an older Yellow Lab plus a mostly invisible cat (and who wouldn't blame her). The dogs are well-behaved but friendly. We are social and enjoy meeting new people but can also give guests total privacy.

Our home is within minutes of University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC), MARC and Amtrak trains to DC, 15 minutes from the BWI Airport, and 20 minutes from downtown Baltimore. We are close to the Baltimore Beltway (I-695). We are also less than a mile from a major grocery store, pizzeria, and drug store. Other amenities are also close by.

This is an ideal setting for people with business meetings at or near the airport who want a homey setting, for guests attending graduations or other events at UMBC, or activities in the Baltimore or Washington, DC area.

  • Earl, Lois, and their pups were wonderful hosts! The guest suite is beautiful and very private with a microwave, frig and toaster close-by. They always have the coffee machine available upstairs. They are available, but not intrusive. Perfect hosts! The area is a quiet, quaint Baltimore neighborhood.

    One of my favorite features not mentioned is the walking, biking Rail Trail right behind their home. It's an awesome 1 to 2 mile walk, so badly needed when you eat too much on vacation.

  • We were able to kick our feet up and relax at Earl & Lois' place. Earl & Lois are gracious hosts, easy going and wonderful to stay with. The guest suite which is really quite nice and provides the right amount of privacy. We enjoyed the view from the breakfast/ family room area, their two beautiful & well behaved golden retrievers plus the walk along the Short Line RR trail right outside the backyard. This one is on our list to come back to. It's very close to the airport and in a nice quiet neighborhood.

  • A very pleasant stay. I got in late and Earl showed me to the guest suite. The guest suit was a clean, quiet, and looks exactly like the pictures. The bed was really comfortable too. They have two sweet dogs and a shy little cat, which makes it really feel like home. The WiFi worked great and the K-cup machine definitely made the early morning better. Earl was really friendly and accommodating, but they also gave me plenty of privacy, as I was there for a professional conference and needed to prepare my presentation from the minute I got in. If I'm ever in the area again, I'll definitely want to stay here.

  • We had a very short stay but the room was quite comfortable.

  • Nice, really nice place. The suite is 100% as described and was well heated even in the coldest winter when the temperature dropped to 0°F (-18°C). Lois and Earl are the perfect hosts: welcoming, but not intrusive. They are interesting, open minded people. Their coffee machine saved my life more than once and their dogs are super friendly.I'll go there again.

  • I had another great, comfortable stay with Earl and Lois. As usual, they were very accommodating and helpful and I enjoyed chatting with them spending some time with their sweet dogs. I hope to see them again soon!

    November 2013
  • My first experience with airbnb was with Earl & Lois. Although I didn't spend much time at the home, I felt 'at home' when I was there. Comfortable, clean, private. I will stay there again.

    October 2013
  • I had another great visit with Earl and Lois! They were extremely welcoming and offered to help in any way possible. Given the time I've spent there, their place is starting to feel like my home away from home and I look forward to returning next time I am in the area.

    October 2013
  • Earl and Lois were great hosts! Unfortunately, we didn't see them much, except for when we arrived and left (it was a quick day-trip), but we are so glad we decided to stay with them. The room was spacious, clean, and comfortable, and the jacuzzi bathtub in the guest bathroom was a wonderful treat after a long day!

    September 2013
  • Earl and Lois were great hosts! I stayed with them for three weeks as I began my new job and planned a permanent move to the area. They were very welcoming and offered to help with anything I needed. They even brought me some hand-picked flowers from their garden. The room was very pleasant, comfortable and relaxing, so I look forward to coming back!
