Interaction with Guests
I'll be here to greet you when you arrive, explain a few things about the house and your room, then I'll let you settle in.
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 (char(URL 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.

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. Sadly, Larry is no longer with us, but I will continue to share what we had created together with others. We were both very proud of our city and our neighborhood and I look forward to sharing with guests all they have to offer. This is a Gay household where everyone is welcome.
