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.*

The space

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!

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!

We had a great time at Brian and Rose's place! Everything we needed and very cozy for the whole family. We would definitely stay there again. The charm of the urban farmhouse was just awesome!

This was our very first Airbnb experience and we're definitely doing it again! Rose and Brian's charming house is in a great location close to campus and right on a park. Communication leading up to the weekend was fantastic, even warning us about the deep freeze that had descended on the city. When weather caused cancellation of our plans on check-out day they quickly accommodated. The cold was the only downer because we couldn't walk to campus or Hampden and the old house let some of the wind sneak in making it pretty chilly on the main floor but not in the bedrooms.

This house is in a great location to The John Hopkins University, and it only takes several minutes walking to the campus and 15 minutes driving to inner harbor. The house is very clean and comfy, and Brian and Rose are very great host. We spent two nights at their house, and our dog was able to play in their yard. Everything is great.

We really enjoyed our stay! I was traveling with a group of six and the house comfortably accommodated everyone (2 bedrooms, 2 couches and a space in the basement). The house is right on the edge of JHU's campus by a park. Nearby Hampden appeared to be gentrified. This was a great, affordable option.

Stayed for 2 nights with my wife and daughter. Very comfy, cosy and clean home. The location is also very good. Could not meet my hosts but they responded promptly to all my queries. The weather was very warm but the air-conditioning took care of that. There is a Safeway close by for grocery needs. Overall a very positive and enjoyable experience.

Rose was very helpful with instructions for entering the house and local recommendations. The interior of the house looks just like the pictures; it is quaint and welcoming. My boyfriend and I enjoyed our stay. The neighborhood is charming and the location was convenient for our purposes.

Rose & Brian User Profile

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.
