About This Listing
Cozy, well decorated 2-bedroom Tudor-style rowhome in a well-established neighborhood in North Baltimore. Walking distance to great shops and restaurants in Belvedere Square, and 10-15 minutes drive from most major Baltimore attractions.
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. 5-10 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 I'm 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 a 5- minute drive to Whole Foods or Trader Joe's, 5 minutes to the closest mall.
HOME SET UP: There are 2 bedrooms with 1 queen-size bed and 1 full size bed, and 1 futon in the carpeted, above-ground basement. Additionally, the house has 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 countertops, 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
- 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
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.
This is a well established neighborhood in walking distance to shops and restaurants of Belvedere Square.
Belvedere Square 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!
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.
No smoking or pets, please.
Please remove sheets from beds and leave in basement by washing machine along with used towels, and for stays longer than one week, please make sure that you take trash out back.

It's really a great, comfortable house! It's my primary residence, so I ask that guests treat the house with respect, leaving it as you found it. I've put a lot of care and love into it and I hope you enjoy staying here! :)
Beth left us notes and even some breakfast goodies! Her house was indeed incredibly charming and homey. Her A/C worked great, which was a big plus for my husband, who runs hot. We felt safe walking around the lush neighborhood every morning, admiring the quaint houses and beautiful landscaping. Beth's house was easy to get to, near multiple groceries and other restaurants and bars, and she left a pretty comprehensive folder of information about the house and 'hood for us to reference. Clean sheets and fresh towels completed the feeling of being at a home away from home. Thanks Beth, for a wonderful Baltimore vacation!!
Beth was a great host. She welcomed us on arrival and was always available for questions. She was kind enough to leave us with some basics like tea and coffee and oatmeal too :) the house is lovely and in a great location. The only downsides are the one shower amongst 5 of us and for light sleepers note that a beautiful old house has very creaky floors.
We loved everything about Beth's house. She was great to work with and the house was very lovely and really had a nice feel to it. Anything we could need was just a few minutes away. We were in Baltimore for our daughter's graduation, and easily fit 6 people in the house. Loved the backyard for coffee in the morning.
We had a lovely stay at Beth's place! There was plenty of room to accommodate all five of us. Clean, tidy and super communication. We highly recommend this place!
We had a wonderful stay at Beth's house! She was excellent in communicating before and during our stay. The house was lovely - lots of character - and being in walking distance of Belvedere Square was great. Beth was prompt in fixing a minor problem with some ants - her quick response kept it from being an issue. I would highly recommend a stay here!
Beth was at her lovely home to greet us when we arrived in Baltimore. We visited with our two kids (5 and 2.5yrs old). She welcomed us and gave us a great tour of the house. Beth's house is perfect, charming, spacious, fitted with everything you need from wifi to a laundry/dryer. Beth was readily available for answer all our questions over text message and email and always got back to us within a minute of us reaching out to her. We will for sure reach out again to her next time we are in Baltimore!
My daughters and I stayed in Beth's home when we travelled to Baltimore for a family event. Her house is very inviting and full of charactor. The location is fantastic. Close to everything we needed, but tucked away in a nice neighborhood. We had so much fun just being able to get together again as a family in this great home. Thank you Beth for making our stay one to remember.

About the Host, Beth
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!
It's a fun pub with good Irish food and of course, good Irish beer!
It's about five minutes from the house--great, cheap groceries!
Great shops, bars, and restaurants!
Great margaritas and a good place to watch football if you're so inclined!
