The Space

Welcome to our cozy, 120+ year old 3-story rowhome in lower Charles Village (also known as Old Goucher). We've spent several years renovating it and are happy to share with you all its historic architectural details and our large collection of artwork.

Your guest room also serves as a small gallery space. The current exhibit, a solo show of the photograph / assemblages of Geoff Grace, opened January 20th. A review of the exhibit can be read here: (website hidden)

Our house has a welcoming living room with plenty of old records and books for you to browse and original hardwood floors and decorative fireplaces are throughout the entire home. The house has one and a half baths, featuring marble floor, a claw foot bathtub and a fireplace. Your sunny, quiet guestroom is on the third floor, in the back of the house. A washer and dryer are available for our guests' convenience. Our large, contemporary kitchen is available for cooking small vegetarian meals or eating/storing your (veg or not veg) take-out. A sunny backyard with a large patio and vegetable garden are right off the kitchen. We have central air for those hot Baltimore summers.

We have a large, long haired cat who is very laid back and not allowed in the guest room.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • My boyfriend and I went down to look at apartments in Baltimore and found this beautiful room! Sarah and Bruce's place was truly an amazing experience, the artwork on the walls, interior design, fabrics designed by Sarah, etc. They were both incredibly friendly and helped my boyfriend see why Baltimore was so great.

    Also their cat is awesome.

    If you stay in Baltimore, stay here!

  • I loved staying in Sarah and Bruce's house. Light, clean, airy, and full of (email hidden) to crash and relax after a long week of work. (The lavender-filled pillow on the bed was a wonderful touch.) Sarah and Bruce were very considerate (loaning an umbrella and extra tickets to the Maryland Film Festival for my day off) and are super plugged in to the Baltimore scene—great resources for anyone who is new to town. Their house is located close to three very important locales: Charmington's (good coffee), Parts & Labor (good cocktails, burgers) and the Ottobar (good music).

  • Sarah and Bruce's home was a fascinating reflection of their artistry and of the thriving art scene that is off the beaten tourist track in Baltimore. They both work as designers and are very knowledgeable about all that is going on in the diverse and interesting neighborhood surrounding their house. They were friendly, never intrusive, and they made it easy to enter and leave when they were not there. The house is within walking distance of restaurants, bars, and coffee shops, and close to public transportation. There was usually parking available--a real find in Baltimore! The bedroom was very restful, with a happy pairing of interesting art and a very comfortable bed. I will look for an opportunity to stay with Sarah and Bruce again.

  • Bruce, Sarah and Otto(the cat), they were wonderful. Their place is Beautiful, elegant, simple, and Very very comfortable. They were very nice, polite, and provided all that we needed! Their place is located near a walk-able supermarket, the Baltimore Museum of Art, and the vibrant Station North Arts District. I highly recommend staying with them! Its so worth it!

    March 2014
  • Sarah and Bruce were welcoming and their house is great! Very clean and open. Otto the cat also is a good housemate too.

  • Sarah and Bruce should lead the "how to host" workshop for airbnb, though their warmth, easy-goingness, great style, and heartfelt thoughtfulness at every turn are not skills easily taught! We SO lucked out by choosing their place for a special mother/daughter-moving-to-college-across-the-country-from-home trip! Our bedroom was as comfortable, apt as lovely and hosts as welcoming as we'd hoped! Even the cat cooperated and didn't bother my allergies a bit. Definitely peruse their (website hidden) map of favorites. . . . and ESPECIALLY try Tapas Teatro for (website hidden) ever. LOVED every moment of staying here. Perfect in every way.

  • My stay with Sarah and Bruce was very pleasant. I had easy access to transportation and close shops for food. My room was super comfy. I was only there for a few days but felt welcome. I would only say to future tenants to pay the attention I did not to the profile especially when it comes to the house being veggie. I am most certainly a meat eater and I don't think it was well received when I asked to put meat in their refrigerator...

  • I had a wonderful time staying with Sarah and Bruce on a weekend trip to Baltimore with my boyfriend. The house is beautifully decorated and spacious, and also has a separate air conditioning for the guest room. Their cat was very friendly and didn't bother my allergies at all.

    The house is conveniently located next to a bus line, and within walking distance of great coffee shops and restaurants. Sarah and Bruce were really welcoming and knew the neighborhood well!

    June 2013
  • sarah's house is beautiful and she was very accommodating. our room had lots of closet/drawer space. very private and secure. not to mention, the house had multiple bathrooms!

    there was separate airconditioning and a fan for the 3rd floor (where you will sleep). we were given good recommendations on where to eat and drink coffee in the morning. area looked cool and was close to everything we wanted such as groceries. would come back to stay again.

    June 2013
  • Sarah and Bruce were extremely gracious hosts, letting us come and go as we pleased. The house is immaculately kept, with great skylights and lighting that make it seem huge! Sarah turned on the A/C during the heat wave on the third floor (where we were sleeping) to make the visit that much more comfortable. Thank you!
