Cozy, well decorated 3-bedroom Tudor-style rowhome in a well-established neighborhood in North Baltimore. Walking distance to shops and restaurants, and 10-15 minutes drive from most major Baltimore attractions.

The Space

Hi, welcome to my 1930s tudor-style, 1800-square-foot rowhome in Baltimore.

It's a cozy place to rest your head when in town visiting family, visiting schools (I'm a very short drive to most of the major universities in town), or just coming to see some of the sights in Baltimore.

LOCATION: 15 minutes from all the major attractions, museums, aquarium, etc. of downtown and the Inner Harbor, 2 minutes from Towson, 5 minutes driving distance from light rail and I-83. 10 minutes from most major universities (Johns Hopkins, Towson, Loyola, Notre Dame, Goucher, and more), so great for parents wanting to check out colleges in Baltimore. And just 45 minutes from Washington, DC.

NEIGHBORHOOD: The house is on a lovely tree-lined street (voted prettiest in Baltimore) in a good, well-established neighborhood. Belvedere Square is walking distance—a few blocks away—and boasts a wonderful summer music festival if you happen to be here on a Friday night in the summer months. It also has a number of restaurants, pubs, and shops as well as one of the top-rated art deco style movie theaters with first-run movies. The house is 5 minute's drive to Whole Foods or Trader Joe's, 5 minutes to the closest mall.

HOME SET UP: There are 3 bedrooms with 1 queen-size bed and two full size beds (the newly finished, above ground basement is used as a bedroom as it has a full-size futon), 1 large, full bath upstairs + 1/4 bath in basement (it's a Baltimore thing with houses built in this era), eat-in kitchen and granite counter tops, gas stove/oven, central A/C, radiator heat, hardwood floors, washer/dryer, sky lights, sunroom/meditation room off the master bedroom, wood-burning fireplace, and much more. Lots of old world charm with updated amenities. Beautifully decorated and furnished. Wi-fi and basic cable provided.

WHAT WILL BE WAITING FOR YOU WHEN YOU ARRIVE:
- Fresh linens and towels
- Hairdryer
- Clock radio
- House manual with everything you need to know about the house and hood.
- Shower and hand soaps
- Directions to and information about local area attractions
- Coffee and teas
- Condiments

PLEASE NOTE: The house has a lot of stairs and is not child proofed, so it's not a great space for families with small children. Also, as much as I love four-legged family members, I have a no pet policy (due to allergies! : ( )

Thanks for stopping by!

Interaction with Guests

Si estan quedando en la casa, la interacion seria minimal. Tengo una caja con mi llave si no estoy en casa para dejarte entrar. Pero voy a estar a su disposición para cualquier pregunta or duda que pueda tener antes o durante su estancia.

The Neighborhood

This is a well established neighborhood in walking distance to shops and restaurants of Belvedere Square.

Belvedere Square, a few blocks away, has wonderful restaurants, pubs, a European style market, and an art-deco movie theater. In the summer months, each Friday night they block off the area for a concert in the Square. Food and beverage vendors are out and people set up picnic style dining and listen to various local bands perform. It's a lot of fun!

Getting around

I'm 5 minutes drive from the light rail and there are bus stops a block or two from the house. Most guests use a car, however, to get around. There is plenty of street parking.

Other Things to Note

Street parking is readily available directly in front of the house.

  • This house is truly charming and in a great 'hood'! The street is tree lined, quiet and safe. We were able to park right in front of the house every day which is a plus. The house has character - the furnishings are comfortable and attractive. The living room opens onto the dining room which opens onto the kitchen making the space very light and airy and conducive to conversation.
    Beth provides everything you might need and has prepared a binder with information about the house, where to find things, dos and don'ts ( very reasonable!) and the neighborhood. She checked in with us regularly via email to make sure all was well and left very detailed instructions on how to find the house.
    The Belvedere Market is only 3 or 4 very walkable blocks away and has many options for food and drink, both to eat in or take home or enjoy on a patio. There are also a couple of shops, restaurants and a movie theatre in the vicinity.
    We did not use them, but we noticed several bus lines very near by. If you drive, it is pretty easy to get around Baltimore from Beth's house. The conference we were attending was at Towson University and that was just a straight shot 2 miles up the road from Beth.
    The bedrooms were spacious and we had closet and drawer space for our stuff and the beds were comfortable!
    The only caveat I would have is for those with mobility issues. There is no bathroom on the main floor. The main bathroom (along with the 2 bedrooms) is upstairs and there is a toilet downstairs for that sleeping area. But if you are in good shape this is a great place.

  • My family and I has a very enjoyable 3 night stay (website hidden) house was very clean and we felt comfortable and right at home. Although the host, Beth, was out of town she emailed me with instructions on how to get in and what to expect before we came along with her phone number if we needed to contact her. She also emailed while we were there to make sure everything was OK which we appreciated. She also put up pieces of paper explaining some parts of the place and had a large book with maps, restaurants, transportation etc which was very helpful for us. We had no problems with the home and everything worked fine. The neighbourhood was very quiet and we could walk to pick up food and supplies. The light rail station was 5 minutes away by car and was convenient to go downtown although it doesn't run very late to this area so check the schedule before you use it. We would stay here again.

  • Beth was super friendly, prompt, answered all of our questions--we would highly recommend staying here! The neighborhood is safe, close to dining and shopping, and a great way to showcase Baltimore! The house was clean and comfortable and had everything my family needed!

    Response from Beth:

    Thank you, Peter! I am glad it worked out so well. Your family members were wonderful guests. It almost felt like no one had even been here when they left! :)

  • This little house is a true gem and a treasure to stay at. The home is well furnished without feeling stuffy. The style is a great mix of different pieces that all fit well together. The home has everything that you could need in a comfortable and easily accessible area of Baltimore. The street is beautiful and the neighborhood is quiet. Beth is great! She responded quickly to messages and had everything we needed to make this stay wonderful. My mother and I kept gushing on how lovely the home was and how intriguing and beautiful the pieces were that decorated it. This place is not a sterile rental, but has a life and intimate style that is very welcoming. I highly recommend staying here for any trip to the region (we visited DC and Monticello on this trip) and we hope to stay here again when next in the area. There are grocery stores and deli's handy, and the local bus stop is right around the corner. We couldn't ask for better accomodations.

  • Beth's house was perfect for our stay.
    Plenty of room, quiet neighborhood, very relaxing and clean place.

  • Thanks for the great stay, Beth. The house was exactly as described. We especially enjoyed not having to go far for restaurants and shops.

  • Beth was accommodating and helpful, and even though she claimed that she couldn't get her house as clean as she normally would because we wanted the house a few days early, her place was quite clean as well as comfortable. We especially enjoyed cooking and eating in the kitchen by the big windows. It was a very nice stay.

  • we rented Beth's beautiful home for visiting family during our wedding week. it was a delightful space, perfect for gathering and for decompressing after a long day of sight seeing or wedding-to-dos. my favorites were the kitchen nook where my MIL and SIL hung out while i cooked dinner (fantastic oven & stove) and the dining room where we all sat around the table and had epic battles of Peanut (a card game).

    overall, it was a wonderful experience. Beth was super accommodating and responsive.

  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Tudor in the Hood. We are originally from Baltimore, but we forgot how compact the city is compared to our current home Houston. Anyway, this was a very convenient location to where we had to go-Charles Village, Owings Mills, northwest Baltimore. Everything was as listed in the ad. We really enjoyed staying in a place with "character". Thanks, Beth, for being a great airbnb-er!

  • We had a great stay at Beth's place. The house is very well kept with everything that we needed. The location was very good with shopping and restaurants nearby. Beth is a very gracious host and had everything set up to make our stay great. We would certainly stay here again.

About
HI! Thanks for checking out my home! My work background is in marketing communications, but I left the 9-5 world last year to pursue a passion--working with indigenous cultures and endangered big cats. I love yoga, traveling and photography. I wear a few hats at the moment, working as a U.S. representative for a South African-based non-profit white lion conservation organization, and I also work as a part-time program manager for a non-profit that works helping conserve indigenous cultures around the world. And I do some freelance work, too. It keeps me busy and out of trouble, and also on the road quite a bit! :) Feel free to contact me with any questions you might have about the house, the neighborhood, or the area in general! And I hope you enjoy your time in B-more not matter where you stay!
