My husband and I lived in the historic district of Frederick for years and were so pleased to learn about Darwin's Hearth before our recent trip back. The house has good size bedrooms and bathrooms along with a nicely updated kitchen and laundry area as well as a deck with seating out back. We had numerous friends and families staying with us throughout our 2 week rental and there was plenty of room to put everyone up (loads of spare sheets & towels to boot.) The location is great if you want to take advantage of what the historic district has to offer - shops, bars, restaurants, Weinberg Center, Baker Park - all are within easy walking distance. The local hosts were very quick to reply with any questions we had and the owners responded to our emails right away even though they do not live in the US. Renters should be aware that the front rooms of the house are just a few steps off the street and so you will hear traffic noise/street noise in that part of the house but this wasn't a problem for us since we lived there before and knew what to expect. Also, the stairs up to the third floor are quite steep but the owner is honest about that in the description of the property. We stayed in the roomy bedroom on that floor with its wonderful large window and were fine with the stairs. We would definitely stay here again and thank you for sharing the property with us!
