About this listing
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 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 two English Golden Retriver's; Dayton is 4 years old and Bailey is a year and a half. We also have a mostly invisible cat (and who wouldn't blame her). The dogs are well-behaved but very 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.
While there is a private entrance to the suite guests are welcome to come upstairs for coffee in the morning or to just hang out with us. While we don't offer breakfast guests are welcome to forage in our fridge or pantry and coffee is always available with our kurig!
Interaction with Guests
We love interacting with guests but if privacy is desired that is fine with us. We have guests we rarely see and guests we welcome to talk with.
Our two street neighborhood is very friendy and safe. We have "happy hours" in various homes every Friday evening during the summer and have a block party in June every year. Guests are welcome to join us for any neighborhood events.
There is a bus line within about 4 blocks that goes downtown Baltimore and we are close to Amtrak and MARC trains to DC.
Host will give guest a key at check in. Security deposit if for the key and will be refunded when the key is returned. There is a strict indoor no smoking policy and if violated the guest (s) will be asked to leave.
