Short stay in Baltimore
Expected to be a family of 5 in town for a graduation, as it turned out it was only the two of us. The house was very comfortable for us, and believe it would have been had we been at full force. Richard was very available via phone for questions. As we were also moving our daughter out after graduation, we had a large vehicle with us, and while we were somewhat concerned with the parking situation, it was a non-issue. Perfect spot was open as we pulled up, and as Richard suggests we left the car there until it was time to depart. Ubers/Lyfts are the way to get around. Will stay again if we are in the area.
Three story row house with space to spread out and a kitchen with back patio perfect for congregating. Location is prime in Fells Point. 200 feet from Max’s the second largest seller of craft beers on the east coast.
Beautiful historic house in great location
Perfect location for shopping and nightlife. The house is so interesting and well preserved for a historic building
Short stay in Baltimore for Conference
We (three academics attending a conference) stayed at Lancaster House in May. The house was perfect for our needs - clean, well appointed, and in a funky neighbourhood with lots of good restaurants nearby. We were able to either walk to the convention center or take the water taxi - which was a real pleasure. The house has good internet connection and plenty of space to work in. We would definitely choose to stay here again.
Super cool place, right in Fells Point, but on a side street so a little quieter. The house is fun
I will definitely stay here again. Had a really great weekend. The house has everything you need and really lets you feel like you are part of the neighborhood. It exceeded my expectations!
A home, instead of a hotel
My family and I rented Lancaster House to attend a wedding in Baltimore. We took the water taxi to the reception. The hotel that everyone else was staying at was within walking distance so we could attend the after party easily. We saved a good amount of money renting the house instead of staying at the hotel.
The house sleeps 6 easily. The beds are comfortable. One room is a loft that overlooks the kitchen. We were able to walk pretty much anywhere we needed to go. We took the train to D.C. Wish we could have spent more time out in Fell's Point but did have a good meal at the Admiral's Cup.
Note that the stairs are a converted spiral staircase that can be slippery! Parking was also a challenge for those who are not used to city parking.
Will stay again if we were heading back to Baltimore. Thanks Richard!
