COLLECTOR'S HOUSE - DOWNTOWN 3 BR 2.5 BA - WALK TO VOLT, THEATRES, SHOPS!

Frederick House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-7)

The Collector's House, located at 209 W. South Street, is a 1325 square-foot, 2-story masonry “shotgun row house” built in 1920, with 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths and original heart pine floors. (It is the right hand side of a duplex.)

Completely renovated in early 2013, this high-ceilinged, sun-filled house has been furnished to provide a relaxing, attractive oasis to guests, with all the comforts of home. (The left side of the duplex is also a FrederickVacationRentals.com property, called The Artist's House.)

The Collector's House is decorated with many unusual objects from the quirky and eclectic collections of the owner's father, a true Renaissance man and self-professed 'Master Pack Rat.' (You can't take it all with you, but you CAN leave it to your children...)

The Collector's House has beds for 6 and an additional inflatable airbed which can be set up in the dining room or living room.

Although children are permitted as guests at The Collector's House, the home is NOT recommended for toddlers or pre-school-age children. Because there are many fragile pieces of art and collectibles in the house within arms' reach, children should either be newborns or older children who are not inclined to touch everything they see!

For more information, look at the detailed listing for The Collector's House at FrederickVacationRentals website.

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

Owner/Property Manager purchased this house in 2012

NICE HOME, CLOSE TO EVERYTHING

  • 5 of 5
We had a great week at this very nice home. The layout, outdoor space, and location were a plus. Everything we needed in this very comfortable home. We visited the battle grounds, DC, and went to a baseball game while we were there, perfectly located for us. Very clean with all the amenities.

A WONDERFUL RETREAT OR JUMPING OFF POINT

  • 5 of 5
The Collector's House is a comfortable, homey and easy place to stay for anyone who'd like to explore beautiful Frederick Maryland. It is also a great place to hole up for a weekend and get some crafting done! The owner has added many personal touches such as a supply of coffee, chocolates, snacks and even condiments in the fridge! Everything was clean and tidy. Bed linens and towels were soft and comfy. We will definitely be back.

VERY HOSPITABLE HOME!

  • 5 of 5
Adorable home in an excellent location. The owner has thought of lots of little touches that make you truly feel like a welcomed guest! I loved the sleep number beds. The linens and towels were crisp and clean, as was the whole home upon our arrival. The homeowner left us a personalized welcome note and kept communication open prior to, and after, our visit. We went for a girls scrapbooking weekend and we will most definitely be returning!

My daughters, granddaughter and I had a great time staying in the Collector's House. It was very clean, comfortable and fun. Fredrick was a perfect place to shop, eat and just walk around. My daughter who eats gluten free found plenty of places to eat in all price points. We plan to return next year with another granddaughter.

OVERDUE REVIEW!

  • 5 of 5
I would just like to say that I have used VRBO several times in the past few years for vacation my family, I think the concept is great. This is the first time I had used it for business travel. I am not the type of person that writes reviews, as a matter of fact I have never written one, but felt I needed to share some things about my stay at The "collectors house", the city of Frederick, but mostly about the owner Nancy.
I have stayed at all Three of Nancy's properties all of them fantastic with new kitchens, bathrooms, sleep number beds, etc. very comfortable to stay at, very. Frederick is a great city that I just happened to fall upon due to work. Nancy took the time to recommend several restaurants, landmarks, things to do in the area. It is close to DC, Baltimore, Gettysburg, but you definitely want to spend some time in Frederick.

I ate breakfast at Café Nola, you must try the Italian eggs benedict, awesome, Il Porto for Italian cant be beat, veal chop was incredible, Black Hog for BBQ and a cold beer. There are so many others, you wont go hungry in Frederick! Nancy and her husband Bob are tremendous personable people, fantastic hosts, I could go on & on. Thank you so very much for your hospitality, hope to get to Frederick again and see you soon. Nice job on the collectors house, real nice! Take care.

GREAT LOCATION AND COMFORTABLE HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
The Collector's House is a great place to stay in Frederick. All of downtown is in easy walking distance, including a local pool, Baker Park (with a playground, outdoor theater, and walking paths), plenty of restaurants (we loved Black Hog BBQ), and the Carrol Creek river walk. The house itself has a well-stocked kitchen, laundry downstairs, and comfy bedrooms upstairs. The TV and Blu-Ray player were easy to use and had plenty of options for evenings when we stayed in. Having off-street parking is very nice too. We would definitely recommend staying here!
