Urban farmhouse 2 blocks from JHU

House - Private room · Huntingdon Avenue, Baltimore, MD 21211, United States
Rose & Brian

Great location two blocks from Johns Hopkins Homewood campus, short 10 minute walk to fun Hampden restaurants, tucked into quiet Wyman Park!

This is a guest room on the second floor of our urban farmhouse, built in the 1880s from wood salvaged from barns taken down to build the Hopkins campus! The room has a double bed and a desk. There are two full bathrooms in the home and you will have the one near this bedroom to yourself (the shower was installed after the photos were taken). Please enjoy use of fresh towels, linens, and toiletries.

Enjoy a simple breakfast with coffee and tea by the west-facing windows overlooking the park. Laundry facilities, wi-fi, cable TV (TV is available in the finished basement) are available for guests. We also have a wide selection of books from local history tomes to Latin American poetry.

We are DC natives but we love Baltimore and recommend fun things to do in walking distance, especially in nearby Hampden, with its famous shops and restaurants.

Wyman Park is great for runners and walkers, and it connects to a reservoir and historic park with more scenic running trails!

How to get around?

--Walk to the Baltimore Museum of Art and JHU Homewood in 5 minutes.
--The JHU shuttle takes you to Mount Vernon and the medical campus is about a 12 minute walk.
--Ride one of our bikes to the train station to get to DC or anywhere on the Northeast Regional line
-Come by taxi from the train station for about $6.
-Park on the street opposite our house

**Please note to guests coming from out of town: MegaBus does NOT stop in Baltimore City, and it will be extremely difficult to get to the city from their stop in White Marsh which is a ~40 minute drive outside Baltimore. Consider coming by Amtrak, Greyhound, Bolt or other buses that stop in the city.**

The most historic house in the neighborhood, our place is full of wonderful quirks: Gorgeous original hardwood floors, tin ceilings, and lovely wood banisters. A gas fireplace in the dining room keeps things cozy in the winter, as does a wood furnace in the basement (we also have gas heat). We even have a well in the stone bathroom... We don't use it for water, but it keeps things cool in the summer!

  • Rose and Brian were Friendly people and their house has lots of great character and is very comfortable. Their local neighborhood is safe, pleasant and very walk-able and Rose had lots of good tips on places to eat, visit and transportation. Would definitely recommend these guys!

  • Rose and Brian were sweet and their home is beautiful! Rose gave good dinner recommendations and was generally very pleasant and hospitable.

    Also - their dog is adorable.

  • It was a pleasure staying here and the bed was super comfortable! My boyfriend and I stayed over New Years and the location was perfect, because it was very close to everything, especially the harbor and downtown area. Can definitely recommend it and as long as you have a car to get around, it's a great location.

  • We had a great stay with Rose & Brian! *thanks* They were accommodating and the room is clean and cosy. The location was an easy walk to restaurants and the Baltimore Museum of Art.

    December 2013
  • This is my third visit to Rose & Brian's B&B, so clearly I like it! Rose and Brian are gracious and welcoming; the house is charming (it's actually one-half of a duplex, but I've never heard any noise from the other side of the house), it's quiet, the accommodations are very comfortable (comfy, warm bed; your own bathroom), it's in the city but the parking is easy, the location is great - it's just a great little B&B!

    December 2013
  • The house itself was absolutely beautiful and the room was very cozy and stocked with a great (and highly varying) book collection. Rose and Brian were very flexible and accommodating, and of course very friendly. Georgie was adorable!

    November 2013
  • I love staying at Rose and Brian's house! This was my second stay and it is now my official Baltimore "home away from home" when I need to travel to the city. Rose and Brian are lovely, as is their very quiet dog, Georgie, who is sweet and soft and who doesn't bark; the house and location are so quiet that it's easy to get a good night's sleep; and the accommodations are clean and thoughtfully arranged. I love being here and look forward to my next visit.

  • Cute, small room in a historic home. Safe, residential neighborhood within walking distance of restaurants and shopping. Rose was very easy-going and gave us our privacy.

    November 2013
  • Rose and Brian have a pleasant house in the JHU/Hampden neighborhood, which, in my three-day stay impression, is a nice mix of university people, young professionals and long time families. I had no car so it was good that I like to walk. There are many interesting little restaurants and shops on 36th St, the main Hampden street, which is about a 15-minute walk. Public transportation is not as frequent to that neighborhood. Rose and Brian were helpful, giving recommendations for restaurants and the nearest buses. Both bedrooms off of a short hallway on the second floor and the upstairs bathroom is dedicated to the guest room. It is outfitted with a shower in a vintage claw foot tub. Architecturally historic details are a nice element. As a previous guest mentioned, this would not be a good spot for someone with problems going up and down steep stairs... The guest room is smallish and not a lot of closet space, but I imagine the hosts would make closet space for you if needed. For me, alone, it was fine. It’s quiet, clean, peaceful and an interesting neighborhood. It was nice to have use of the washer-dryer as well. If you have a car, there is parking, and it’s only about 10-15 minutes to Inner Harbor by car. And they have just adopted the most adorable dog!

  • We really enjoyed our stay. Rose and Brian have excellent taste & their house is very quaint and comfortable. The location is also good, close to restaurants and coffee shops.

About
Brian and Rose are Washington, D.C. area natives who have traveled between them to more than 25 countries--a nearly alphabetical list from Argentina, Bangladesh, and China to South Africa, Tunisia, and Uruguay--and love living in Baltimore. Rose went to Johns Hopkins for her Master of Public Health and now works in Washington for a global health project. Brian works for the governor of Maryland in Annapolis. We love dogs and welcome canine friends who are house-broken. Some of our favorite things to do in the neighborhood are run and bike on Wyman Park trails, tend urban gardens, have coffee at Charmington's, walk up to the Baltimore Museum of Art, enjoy a pint at the Dizz, catch an independent flick at the Charles Theatre, enjoy spicy Singapore Noodles at Rocket to Venus, and run into friends at all of these places in "Smalltimore." We welcome guests who appreciate partaking of the best of the city and but keeping it a bit tame on weeknights. We love Charm City! We look forward to introducing you to the local shops and restaurants that underscore our city's moniker.
