Hi, welcome to my beautiful 1930s rowhome in North Baltimore, located on what was voted the "prettiest street in Baltimore." The large front bedroom features hardwood floors, a large closet, and a full-sized, antique mahogany bed. This can be for a short-term stay, or I have flexibility in terms of a longer-term lease, and I can offer a month-to-month lease (rates would be less for a full month lease). The house is very comfortable, and well decorated and fully furnished with towels, cooking utensils, etc.
Hi, welcome to my 1930s tudor-style, 1800-square-foot rowhome in Baltimore.
It's a cozy, quiet place. I'm a very short drive to most of the major universities in town, including Towson University, Johns Hopkins, Goucher College, Stevenson University, Notre Dame, Loyola University. The house is also very close to many of the major hospitals for traveling nurses—Union Memorial, St. Joseph's Medical Center, GMBC, Good Samaritan, Sheppard Pratt, Sinai, Maryland General Hospital, Kennedy Krieger, Mercy, Johns Hopkins, and more. Belvedere Square, is just two blocks away.
LOCATION: 15 minutes from all the major attractions, Inner Harbor, Baltimore Museum of Art, American Visionary Art Museum, National Aquarium, 2 minutes from Towson, 5 minutes driving distance from light rail and I-83. It's a great spot for parents wanting to check out colleges in Baltimore or visiting your kids who are already here. The house is also just 45 minutes from Washington, DC.
NEIGHBORHOOD: The house is on a quiet, lovely, residential tree-lined street (voted prettiest in Baltimore) in a good, well-established neighborhood. Plenty of street parking. 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 the Senator Theater, one of the top-rated art deco style movie theaters in the country, 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!
P.S. I'm easy going, clean, respectful, friendly (but also understand about personal space needs!). Right now, I'm working from home during the day, but that could change, and I will likely be traveling quite a bit in the upcoming months.
Thanks for your interest!
Guests will have access to the full kitchen, full bath, and living/dining room area. There are two TVs in the house--the basement area can be either a bedroom or living space.
Interaction with guests
I'm often on site and try to be available when needed, but also understanding that my guests may want space!!
This is a well established, quiet Baltimore neighborhood--some of my neighbors have lived there for 20+ years. It's a mix of elderly couples, young families, and single people. It's easy access to just about everything the city has to offer.
I'm a five minute drive to the light rail station and there are several bus lines that pick up in the area.
No smoking or pets, please.
Refundable full month security deposit required only for rentals over one month.
It's really a great, comfortable house! I would just ask that you leave it how you found it and treat it as you would your own. I've put a lot of care and love into it and I hope you enjoy staying here!

Hi! Thanks for checking out my home! I've been a host since 2012 and have really enjoyed meeting people from all over the world and reading reviews of those folks I didn't meet, knowing they enjoyed their time at and felt so at peace/at home in my home.
I do work that I love--I'm a freelance contractor in the non profit world, currently working in big cat conservation. And I love yoga, photography, and being in nature. I'm also pretty social!
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 wherever you stay!
