Awesome Location!

  • 5 of 5
Thank you SO much for sharing the Lancaster House with us! It truly was a special visit to Baltimore! We have never stayed in the Fells Point area before and loved it! Your inclusion of the WaterTaxi passes and parking pass showed just how committed you are in making sure every guest enjoys your place AND their time in Baltimore. That same thoughtfulness was throughout your place as well. Very comfortable and well appointed. We are looking forward to a return visit in the colder months to see Fells Point in some snow maybe? Thanks again! Alan and Karen Miami, FL

Girls Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5
My best friend got engaged and we had a girls weekend to celebrate. The location is perfect if you're looking for a weekend of great food, shopping and scenery - and all within walking distance. There was enough room for the six of us to sleep comfortably (the rooms are massive). The only downside was how small the kitchen was - it worked perfectly for the food we cooked but if you're staying for an extended period of time and have a large group the kitchen is quite small so maybe only have one or two people in there cooking or else it will get crowded quickly. If you're older and have arthritis or knee problems I probably wouldn't suggest this place due to the steepness of the stairs all the way to the third level, but other than those two MINOR setbacks this house was gorgeous and the notebook that they provide with information on the surrounding area is perfect! There are details in there for any question you may have.

A truly amazing experience!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I as well as several other production crew members stayed at Lancaster House for five weeks while were working on a film being shot in Maryland. The house served as the perfect base for our production. We enjoyed comfortable accommodations, with a well equipped kitchen, plus had enough extra space for production meetings and to store props. In the rare times when we weren’t working, we took advantage of Fell's Point's many nearby restaurants and shops- which were incredible. Fells Point is truly a unique place to stay, as the sense of community and neighborhood pride really make for a fantastic spot. Lancaster House is the ideal place to spend an extended stay in Baltimore.

Highly recomended, great location and great property!

  • 5 of 5
I arranged for college room-mates to come into town for a long weekend and discovered this property when looking for a space for everyone to stay.
All I can say is "Great!"
We ate breakfast, lunch and dinner nearby, short walking distance to great funky establishments, lotsa live music, and fun crowds.
During the day, everyone explored Fells Point, Canton, Harbor East and Canton
There is a LOT to do within a very small walking distance.
There's a Whole Foods nearby if you are inclined to make meals and the kitchen is small and well-provisioned
Parking is tight, but we had no problem since all the guests were visitors so we only had one car (mine. I live nearby)....the 'included' neighborhood parking pass allowed me to park within 50ft of the house every time I was there.
If you have more cars, there is a large and reasonably priced parking garage basically around the corner.
all-in-all, highly recommended

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5
This is a wonderful house right in the heart of the Fells Point neighborhood, which is full of historic row houses and, in the business areas, funky bars, restaurants, and shops. A relatively new plus is the nearby (a few blocks away in walking distance) of a movie theater, a CVS, and a Whole Foods, these in addition to the Broadway Market, which is a half block in the other direction. The latter features a terrific Polish deli (the sliced meats and cheeses make for great sandwich fare) and a fresh seafood store, which I cleaned out of shucked oysters one night to make oyster stew for a dinner party. The house does not come with private parking, but there is a parking pass and we didn't find the parking to be bad (plus, once you park you really don't need to drive anywhere since everything is in walking distance, or water taxi distance, including downtown and points around the Inner and outer harbors, like Ft. McHenry and Federal Hill).

The house is warm, comfortable, and inviting, and was great for our family (my husband, me, one teenager, one 7-year old, and my brother, up from the D.C. area, who took the couch, which folds out). The owner has done some remarkable rehabbing over the years, and we were so impressed with the finishes, the decor, and the beautiful wood spiral staircase. This is not a good house for anyone who is challenged physically, but if you're game for multiple levels up narrow (and beautiful) staircases, then this house is for you.

There is some street noise (revelers from the nearby bars), but it wasn't bothersome and was only intermittent. We loved that on Christmas Day the town criers, in Colonial dress, walked through the streets ringing in Christmas greetings. It really brought home the history of the neighborhood, which is one of the oldest in Baltimore.

We will definitely stay here again!

We stayed here for one month to be closer to my elderly mom. This place is clean, safe, and fabulous in every way. Richard, the owner, meets every need that may arise. We loved it there and will return again.

The National Register Historic District of Fells Point is a vibrant maritime community, located just east of Baltimore's famous Inner Harbor area and downtown. Many of the existing homes and commercial structures date to the 18th and 19th century, and have been diligently restored to preserve their quaint charm and historic character. The cobblestone streets of Fells Point are alive with activity day and night. There are numerous restaurants, taverns, small theaters, galleries, antique and vintage clothing shops, and other unique establishments. The neighborhood offers an eclectic mixture of residential and commercial cultures and interests, featuring a fascinating melting pot of fine restaurants and inexpensive ethnic eateries, renowned artists and offbeat characters, upscale townhomes and modest working class rowhomes, all existing in harmony side by side.
