The Space

Our charming row house is located in the Ednor Gardens neighborhood of Baltimore. The spare bedroom is available for rent, and it is outfitted with a full-size bed, closet, nightstand, dresser, desk, and lamp. The bedroom is located on the second floor of the house, as is the shared full bathroom. There is an additional half bath located in the basement. We have wi-fi, but no television. Light breakfast (cereal, fruit, juice, coffee and tea) is provided-- let us know if you have any preferences!

Please send us a message before attempting to book, and please also read the entire posting. Thanks!

The house was built in 1928, and maintains its original charm-- there are hard wood floors throughout, the kitchen contains vintage features including a fully functional 1940's Chambers stove, and the living room has an art deco style gas fireplace. There is a sun room which is great for enjoying a cup of tea and a good book. There is also a deck with a grill and deck furniture.

If you are driving, there is plenty of free street parking available, as well as a private driveway in the back of the house.

Guest Access

You will have access to the full house, except for our bedroom and the other room that we rent. You can use the kitchen, dining room, living room, sun room, back porch, the full bathroom (on the second floor, shared), and half bathroom in the basement.

Interaction with Guests

We live in the house, along with our dog, a Staffordshire Terrier named Petunia. We will be at the house during your stay. We love getting to know new people, and giving travel tips based on your interests. We also respect that guests have varying levels of desire for interaction with their hosts, so we will give you solitude if that's what you prefer.

The Neighborhood

The neighborhood is quiet and safe. It is tree lined and the residents are a mix of young professionals, families, and students from Hopkins and Morgan State.

The house is located about a mile from the Johns Hopkins Homewood Campus and less than a mile from the Waverly Farmers Market, Giant Grocery store, and Lake Montebello (an urban lake, with a path around it for running and biking). It is about 3.5 miles from Fells Point and the Inner Harbor (15 minutes drive or 1/2 hour on public transport) and 2.5 miles from Hampden (10 minute drive). There are a number of restaurants within walking distance (Thai, Chinese, carry out fried chicken/burgers, a diner), and it's about a mile to Charles Village where there are even more restaurant/bar options.

Getting around

There are numerous bus lines within walking distance of the house. The 36 bus line, which runs downtown, stops one block from our house. The 3 bus line stops about 1/3 of a mile away, this bus goes to downtown, Penn Station, and the Inner Harbor. There are many other bus lines that access Johns Hopkins Bayview and other points of interest within walking distance. From the airport you can take a taxi (about $35) or take the light rail and switch to a bus, or, our personal favorite: take the light rail to near Penn Station, and hop in a taxi at Penn station (about $10).

Other Things to Note

We have a second room available in the house which can also accommodate up to two people, so please check out that listing if you need additional space (Charming Row House in Charm City). If you do not book both rooms it is possible there may be guests in the other room during your stay.

  • My first-ever experience as an Air Bnb guest was at Amy and Bobby's place for two nights, and my experience was nothing less than exceptional !!! After spending one night in a motel, I looked forward to my stay at the Charming Row House, and I ended up finding most hospitable individuals I could ever ask for, including a cute and very friendly house dog named Petunia, or "Tunia" for short. Having a dog around was a big plus, and made it seem even more like being home. Even a country boy like me who is accustomed to the quietness of the farm, found Amy and Bobby's neighborhood to be very quiet during the daytime and night, great for sleeping. My room was clean, the bed was made with a fresh linens, and the bathroom with tub/shower is just across the hallway.
    Although the bathroom is technically "shared", it never felt that way because it was always unoccupied when I needed it. Since I stayed during the week, Bobby was home more than Amy, and he went out of his way to accommodate. We enjoyed a bit of good conversation, just "hanging out", cooking dinner one night, and taking Petunia for her evening walk around the block. Although I was away from home in a somewhat unfamiliar town, Amy and Bobby's home felt like home. Bobby suggested a fantastic authentic Chinese restaurant just about a mile away. But keep in mind, you don't have to eat-out if you stay here... they have a cozy kitchen equipped with all the practical cooking tools you need to throw down a meal. (if you are planning on cooking, just please let them know in advance, so you can coordinate schedules) I didn't do much cooking during my brief stay, however I was inspired to whip up a batch of America's Test Kitchen's banana bread one evening. If you're looking for a "home away from home" and some friendly, down-to-earth people, this is the place to stay. A warm greeting at my arrival,.... and a wave goodbye upon my departure. Try finding that at any hotel! :)

  • I stayed with Amy and Bobby for an extended period of time while completing my internship in Baltimore. They are gracious hosts with a beautiful home and two adorable dogs! Amy and Bobby always made me feel like I was home - I couldn't have asked for better hosts!

  • Amy and her husband Bobby were just fantastic hosts. They are warm and friendly, with a lovely, comfortable home, and took care to ensure that what I needed was provided (including keeping the room I rented dog-hair-free.) But they also went way above and beyond expectations; they were quite generous in offering unexpected (and delicious) meals, had excellent advice about where to go in Baltimore for good shopping and a haircut, and lent me an umbrella at a crucial moment (just prior to job interview), when I had carelessly forgotten to bring one. Plus they have great coffee-making gear and two charming dogs. Highly recommended!

  • I had a great stay with Amy in Baltimore. I was in town for 9 days attending a theatre directors workshop. She was a very friendly and welcoming host. House was charming and clean. My room was spacious with a comfortable bed and the house was a quick walk to public transit. I would definitely stay with Amy again and highly recommend her as a host!

  • Amy and Bobby are the best. They're both very amiable and eager to help, the room I stayed in is more than comfortable, they live in a pleasant old home near Union Memorial Hospital with the most interesting stove on the Eastern Seaboard, they offer breakfast, and Amy very kindly dropped me off at the hospital on her way to work, which saved me cab fare. Whether you're staying in Baltimore overnight or for a longer period, I'd happily recommend their place.

  • Amy and Bobby are nice hosts. They are very friendly and considerate. We stayed there for more than 2 months. We enjoyed staying there. The location is very convenient. W never had problem with parking and safety. We recommend this place.

    December 2013
  • I found Amy's home to be just as she stated. I enjoyed my stay and would recommend her home to others. I felt safe and at ease. Amy was always helpful whenever our paths crossed.

About
We live in Baltimore, with our dog, Petunia. Amy workw in public health and Bobby is a spin instructor/homemaker. We like to run, hike and camp, garden, and travel. As hosts we hope that we can share with you a little corner of the world that you might not otherwise see in your travels. Amy's thoughts on travel: I like to get to know people when I travel-- my favorite parts of travel are the unexpected/unplanned interactions that come up-- my brother and I were in India together awhile back, and we were going to go to a museum. It turned out there was an elementary school field trip going on, and the classes were picnicking in front of the museum. The teachers invited us to join the group, and we ended up having a fascinating chat with the teachers and students, and sharing a home-cooked meal. We could never have 'planned' that to happen!
