About This Listing

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!

  • The Dizz

    The Dizz is two blocks away, and a social hub of the Remington neighborhood. Expect only pub food but interesting people watching in a typical Baltimore neighborhood (lots of quirky but nice people!)
    W 30th St Baltimore Maryland 21211
  • Rocket To Venus

    We love Rocket to Venus -- we eat there just about every week. It has something for everyone -- burgers, vegan noodles, salads, and good brunch. Also, local brews and great people watching.
    Chestnut Hill Avenue Baltimore MD 21211-2622
  • Eddie's Market

    The only sort of walkable grocery store in the neighborhood, Eddies stocks basics--dont expect Whole Foods.
    Saint Paul Street Baltimore MD 21218
  • The Wine Source

    Best wine beer selection in the city, plus liquors, local coffee, fresh bakery bread daily, cheese, charcuterie items, and chocolate. All the makings for a picnic.
    Elm Avenue Baltimore MD 21211
  • Golden West Cafe

    Fun bar, good people watching. Decent bands play periodically, brunch food is pretty good.
    West 36th Street Baltimore MD 21211-2410
  • Birroteca

    Great wood fired pizza and local beer. It is walkable although about 25 minutes. Go up Remington/Chestnut, left on the Avenue and straight until Clipper Mill road.
    Clipper Road Baltimore MD 21211
  • Druid Hill Park

    Laid out 100 years ago by Frederick Law Olmstead, the landscape architect behind Central Park, Druid Hill Park is great for jogging, bicycling, tennis playing, and frisbee golf. GO IN DAYTIME ONLY.
    Baltimore MD
  • Artifact Coffee

    Best coffee in the city--expensive, but well worth it. Also serve homemade donuts, muffins, sandwiches, etc. Related to the wonderful Woodberry Kitchen but doesnt require 6 mo advance reservation.
