We are an older couple who wanted to explore the possibility of living in or around Frederick some day. We rented this conveniently-located historic townhouse with a fenced backyard mainly because the owner was willing to rent to people who wish to bring their well-behaved dog... and our dog loved the place! We loved many things about this rental besides the location - the updated kitchen with all the appliances we needed, the updated bathrooms, the queen bed and ceiling fan in the master bedroom, the air-conditioning (important in August!), and all the little touches that make a house a home. The stairs were a little daunting as many reviews told us, but we managed to be careful and the carpet treads on the wooden steps helped a lot. We actually didn't have a problem with the street noise, but we weren't there on a Friday or Saturday night. We didn't mind parking safely in the reserved alley space either. The only issue we had was upon arrival when the hospitality team somehow missed meeting us to open up the home. All in all, you will find this house just as many reviews tell you - and a very easy walk to Carroll Creek Park and Baker Park. So, enjoy!
