Interaction with Guests
I live here, but it's a really big house, so after I check you in, you may not see me much until check out. As you will not be passing through my personal living space, you are fee to come and go as you please. However, I am always a cell phone call away if you need anything. When I do see guests, I am happy to talk about my house, my neighborhood, and my city, if it seems to me that you are open to that. Otherwise I'lll let you go about your business.
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 corporate apartment 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 shuttle, 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.

Thomas greeted us at the house and was very accommodating. He showed us where the little service kitchen was and we were able to make our selves at home while he finished up our room. We had arrived a little early. The house is just as described, decorated with beautiful antique furniture, rugs and paintings and we were encouraged to use the rooms.
We had the apartment on the top floor. It was clean, warm and had everything we needed . Nice quality mattress, bedding and towels! It was an absolutely bitter cold couple of days in Baltimore but the good old hot water radiators kept us cozy! We look forward to our next visit!
What a great place to stay! Located in a quaint, walkable area. The home is absolutely gorgeous and has been restored beautifully. The apartment we stayed in was warm despite freezing temperatures outside. High ceilings, transom windows, and a claw foot bathtub had the charm-lover in me very happy. Thomas greeted us promptly and saw us off as well. Overall, a great first experience with Airbnb.
My stay at Empire was more than I expected. Late nineteenth century home with modern conveniences, warm & cozy. Off the Inner Harbor busy scene, but in a vibrant part of Baltimore with a lot of nightlife nearby. Walking distance to Peabody, Walter and train station. Definitely would stay again
Comfortable apartment in a beautiful home in a nice neighborhood. Thomas welcomed me at the door at 10pm, and saw me off at 7 am 3 days later. Very accomodating and easy going.
Had a great stay!
The place is wonderful. The kitchen was fully stocked with every cooking gadget you could think of! It would be an ideal place for a long term stay. We had an issue that was resolved promptly and professionally, which i appreciated.
What a wonderful home to stay, very welcoming, The artwork is amazing, the house is decorated as it should be, I think William Pinkney Whyte would be proud. The apartment I rented was impressive, it was cozy, comfortable, very clean and as a chef I loved the kitchen! It was fun! As an Estate Manager for 17 years I would say it has been restored to it's circa beautifully.

I'm a burnt out graphic designer starting a new life as an innkeeper. Larry and I have put a lot of ourselves into the restoration of our historic home and we love to share it with others. We're very proud of our city and our neighborhood and look forward to showing guests all they have to offer. We are a Gay couple and welcome everyone.
