About Owner/Property Manager

I am an enthusiastic traveler and have been booking my extended family’s vacations online for many years. Before each trip, I spend countless hours researching unique and comfortable hideaways for us to inhabit – in part because I am an online travel junkie, but mostly because I believe that the quality of the accommodations is a huge contributor to the success of any vacation. It's so much easier exploring new worlds when one's family has a comfortable place to sleep, bathe, decompress, and plan the next day's adventures.

And even more than I love exploring other parts of the planet, I love introducing

and sharing Frederick (my part of the planet since 1974) with others. I knew

from day one that Frederick County had a very special charm. To me, it has

only gotten more charming (and considerably more diverse) in the past 39 years.

Presently, Frederick has no downtown hotel and just two popular downtown

B&B’s. I was surprised to discover that there is a dearth of short-term furnished properties or vacation homes available to rent in the downtown area – a huge

omission, from my perspective, because Frederick City and Frederick County are wonderful places for extended visits.

At a crossroads in my life, I decided that something needed to be done about this.

Thus the birth of Frederick Vacation Rentals (d.b.a. FrederickVacationRentalsdotcom)

Owner/Property Manager purchased this house in 2010

Guestbook comments from the owner

We 3 ROMEOs (Retired Old Men Eating Out) just spent a relaxed weekend here at the Artist's House. I think we are the first guests to stay here, and everything was new and immaculate.



The kitchen was big enough for the 3 of us to have a leisurely breakfast, which was the extent of our cooking. And the living room couch and chairs were so comfortable we had a hard time leaving the room. The large TV was fantastic, with a crystal clear picture. We enjoyed watching a few old movies on the DVD player. We had several great meals in Frederick, did some shopping and went to a car show downtown, and even went to a Roller Derby in Hagerstown.



We all liked the fact that we each had our own private bedroom with those fancy beds that we could adjust from soft to firm with the remote controls (a bit of a challenge at first for us 70 and 80-something old-timers, but we figured it out after a while). We also were surprised that, given we were in a downtown area over the weekend, we heard no noise during the night and all slept soundly.



We sat on the front porch each day and watched the locals walk and drive up and down the street. Great conversation topics ensued.



There was so much we didn't have time to see in Frederick that we all decided that we'll have to come back again sometime soon. Thank you very much for sharing your comfortable home with us.



P.S. All the art was great, too. When we weren't sitting around, we were staring at the walls. Such a variety of talent you have here in Frederick!

Perfect location and accommodations

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at The Artist's House for a week while exploring the civil war sites. it was a great location as a home base, withing 1 hour of Antietam, Gettysburg, and Catoctin National Park. The Sleep Comfort bed was wonderful! Loved being able to adjust each side to our own preference. Comfy seating in living room with a great large screen TV. Lots of channels to pick from. Kitchen met our needs too. The home is just as pictured on the website. We were not disappointed!

Superlative "Artists House"

Superlative "Artists House"
  • 5 of 5
This cottage style, well appointed home was the perfect spot for a family trip to visit my son at Hood College. We appreciated having all the amenities, high end linens, comfortable beds, and a location within such easy walking to all the shops and eateries in downtown Frederick and walkable distance to campus. We were grateful for all the little extras in the kitchen that made it easy to eat an impromptu family meal and a big plus was the bottle of "welcome champagne." We will certainly be back again!!
