About this listing
Urban farmhouse built in the 1880s from wood salvaged from barns taken down to build the Johns Hopkins campus! Entire house now available. *Some reviews are of private room rental.*
Great location two blocks from Johns Hopkins Homewood campus, short 10 minute walk to fun Hampden restaurants, tucked into quiet Wyman Park!
Our urban farmhouse was built in the 1880s from wood salvaged from barns taken down to build the Hopkins campus! Each room has a double bed. There are two full bathrooms in the home. Please enjoy use of fresh towels, linens, and toiletries.
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!

**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!

Brian and Rose are Washington, D.C. area natives who have traveled between them to more than 25 countries from Argentina, Bangladesh, and China to South Africa, Tunisia, and Uruguay--and love living in Baltimore.
These days we rent out our spare room when we travel so you likely will not see us but our street is very quiet and neighbors appreciate quiet at night.
Rose works at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and Brian is an Assistant District Attorney. We have a 1 and half year old, Franklin, and a dog named Georgie.
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 love Charm City! We look forward to introducing you to the local shops and restaurants that underscore our city's moniker.
