Guest Reviews

Linda, the owner is great. She is so nice. Stayed there for 4 nights and had a great stay. Breakfast is wonderful. Close to Camden Yards for Orioles games. I stayed in the the Audrey Genevieve Suite. It was very spacious with a great bathroom. The chocolate cookies were amazing. I will definitely stay here again next time I'm in Baltimore.

Beautiful, unique stay in downtown Baltimore in a house that oozes history and charm.
