One off street parking space
Towels and high thread count sheets
High speed internet access over wireless network

The 12 ft. ceilings and 8 ft. tall windows enhances the open atmosphere of an already generously sized bedroom. The private bath consists of a separate powder room and shower room, each with it’s own sink. This configuration is ideal for a couple getting ready for the day, or a night on the town. The antique bed is fitted with a queen sized mattress and high thread count linens.
When booking The West Room, you get more than just a place to sleep. All guests are welcome to enjoy the entire first floor of the house. Relax and enjoy a book, or access our Wifi network with your portable device, in the front or rear parlors. The butler’s pantry, located off the dining room, is set up as a fully equipped kitchenette for guests to prepare snacks or small meals.
Currently this is an owner occupied guest house with a corporate apartment and a two bedroom/one bath suite on the third floor, and two large bedrooms with private baths on the second floor. We are LGBT welcoming. While we are not serving breakfast, there are plenty of options within walking distance and around the city that we would be happy to recommend.
Located in Baltimore’s hip and historic Mount Vernon, we offer visitors a unique blend of Victorian charm, modern elegance, and downtown Baltimore convenience. Nestled on a pretty tree-lined side street, we are only steps from everything historic Mount Vernon has to offer, including restaurants, theatre, museums, symphony hall, and nightlife.
The central location also makes the this an ideal hub from which to explore the rest of the city, and the region. Stops for the MARC, Amtrak, Lightrail, The FREE Charm City Circulator ((email hidden)), as well as the Johns Hopkins and University of Maryland shuttles are all within walking distance. There's a Zipcar station right in front of the house, and two more within a block. Interstate 83 is only a four block drive from your off street parking space behind the house.
What a treasure the building is and our room was so well
appointed. The decorating was beautiful and certainly not what you
would ever find in even the best hotel.. Located in my favorite neighborhood,
you can still walk to the inner harbor. Thomas himself was very gracious and attentive. Quite a jewel. We will be returning soon
We had a great stay with Thomas. The property is in a great location, very convenient. The house was very charming, clean and comfortable. I would highly recommend this property to other AirBnB users!
This is truly an incredible home. The building typifies everything that is beautiful and interesting about its neighborhood, which in turn is one of the most historic and enjoyable districts of Baltimore. If the abundance of things to do within a few blocks isn't enough, access to the rest of the city couldn't be simpler.
The room itself is stunning: the furniture is lovely, the bed luxurious, and the hand-woven tapestry and other artwork perfectly adorn the walls. It was a unique experience to explore the rest of the house and say that, if only for a few nights, we were living like royalty!
Finally, Thomas is a kind, organized, and thoughtful host. He is the type of man that makes you say, "I'm glad that a guy like this is the one to live in a place so wonderful."
Wow. This home is amazing. Never seen anything quite like it. It's like staying in a piece of Baltimore / Maryland history. It is lovingly restored, but in a way that is comfortable and never overly precious. And Tom is a super efficient and easy host. I highly highly recommend. You may even want to visit Baltimore just to stay here. We'll be back for sure.
Wow. Just, wow. This place is amazing. I ended up meeting some folks next door at Owl Bar in the Belvedere Hotel and they couldn't believe I was staying at this beautiful location and that is was in the Airbnb network. Thanks, Thomas!
I had a lovely few days at this residence. I wanted a quiet and somewhat private stay and that is just what I got. The house is immaculately tidy, serene, and the bed (one of the most important factors for me in terms of vacation comfort) was firm and very cozy. I was also able to book an extra night on the fly with no hassle. Thanks for a great stay!
We had a wonderful stay. The house is beautiful and Thomas was a gracious and helpful host. I will be back anytime I'm in the area!
Staying with Thomas was perfect while we visited our son at MICA. The location was great, lots of good restaurants, convenient to get around. The parking space was a real plus. The room and private bath were lovely, better than a hotel, and very comfortable for our 4 day stay. We would visit again.
Great location! Beautiful house! Very friendly and helpful host. Would definitely stay again.
The Empire House and its hosts truly give meaning to the term "Charm City." Absolutely stunning and perfectly curated, and at the same time very comfortable. We will definitely return on our next trip to Baltimore.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
