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!
We appreciate guests who can keep things quiet on weekdays evenings, since we get up early for work. Please smoke outside.
