Nice place

  • 3 of 5

The townhome was really nice, lots of space (maybe too much for just me!)

The area of town seems to have gone a bit downhill but I didn't have any issues the 3 months I stayed there

Robin was very responsive with any issues

Great location to visit MICA

  • 3 of 5

We loved the location and the parking (prized in this area). The host is very friendly and helpful in getting the TV to work throughout the week. The environment can be improved by opening all the window shades, but the HVAC system may need some maintenance to improve airflow and humidity. It may just need a clean filter. Not a major issue as my allergies were easily managed with steroids. The mattress was nice and soft. Maybe too soft. Might be in need of replacement. Overall, a great little place!

Fabulous house

  • 5 of 5

Everything you could possibly want in a dwelling is here. Cozy, well equipped, beautifully furnished, and with your own private deck for morning coffee. The owner was communicative and helpful. Walking distance to a fabulous Indian restaurant. Parking space is such a wonderful plus. Highly recommend!

fantastic place!

  • 5 of 5

This house was as well-appointed as pictured. Perfect location. Everything you need for simple meal preparation. Very clean. The owner was great to work with. We had a wonderful week as we celebrated our son's graduation from JHU; the house had plenty of room to even do a bit of entertaining as we had family come in for the event. Location was perfect - easy walk to Brewer's Art, and the Bun Shop was literally a few houses down.


large flatscreen on second floor with cozy sitting area

patio lovely on a pleasant night

street was quiet and felt safe

washing facilities

if you can't handle stairs, don't stay here - but to us, they were good exercise!

Easy walking to: Bun Shop, Milk and Honey, Brewer's Art, restaurants all along Charles in Mt. Vernon, B. Bistro at Bolton Hill

Would make the same decision in a heartbeat!

Charming townhouse in a great location.

  • 4 of 5

I took my husband to Baltimore to celebrate his birthday. As we were never there, we really didn't know what part of town would be the best place to have a home base. I absolutely loved the picture of the front of the house so took the plunge and booked it. I am so glad we did. It was utterly charming as was the street and the neighborhood. It was a good walk to the water but that's what going to a new city is all about. There were a lot of great restaurants in the immediate area and museums. The balcony off the bedroom was the perfect spot to sit with a glass of wine at the end of a busy day as we planned where we would go for dinner. And the bed was big and comfortable.

A leak started from the bathroom into the kitchen down below. We called Eva and she said she would get someone out there as soon as she could. As homeowners, we knew that weekend charges are a heck of a lot more than weekday so we just told her we would shut off the water to the toilet when we weren't using it and she could take care of it after we left.

All in all, we can highly recommend this townhouse.

Great location.

  • 3 of 5

My first impression was good, and I really liked the location. Eva was wonderful and very easy to deal with.

It was not as clean as i would have expected, especially the bathroom.

Three of us were there for our daughters college graduation and Xmas. Dining in the house was not comfortable as there/s a small table with only 3 bar stools. Seating for 4 people would have made it nicer.

Owner's Response: OMGoodness! I am so surprised (and unhappy) to learn that you did not have an absolutely excellent experience in our home. It is completely uncharacteristic for us to leave any stone unturned when it comes to our guest's comfort and satisfaction. If something was not as you expected it to be, it was also not as we intended it to be. I only wish you had let us know at the time, so that we could have taken care of the problem for you. My sincerest apologies. I hope you will let us make it up to you with a discount on your next stay (we'll even add a 4th stool, in case you have a 4th person in your party next time). Thanks for the heads up. Sincerely, Portia Wood

Nearest Airport
10 Miles
Baltimore Washington International Airport
Car: not necessary

The beautiful, historic Mt. Vernon neighborhood is chock-full of things to do. Local theatre, the Baltimore symphony, the Walters Art Museum and Peabody Conservatory are a few short blocks from our home. You can take a brisk 10 minute walk, or hop on one of the free Circulator buses, for a quick trip to the Inner Harbor, Camden Yard or Raven's Stadium. MICA, University of Baltimore and U Maryland, Baltimore are each a few short blocks away. Excellent public transportation is easily accessed just outside the front door. There are restaurants, nightspots, and music venues in the neighborhood, and the renowned Charles Theatre for first run films and events. We are tucked away on a quiet, tree-lined street in this lively Baltimore neighborhood. You will love having this as your home away from home.
