Blacksmith shop built in 1855 and converted to lovely 1100 square foot cottage with open, hand-axed beams and decorated in rustic style. Full kitchen, bath, bedroom loft and large living area with wood-burning stove leading to covered, private porch. Cottage is part of a larger property with historic home on over 1 acre of manicured grounds in leafy residential neighborhood. Historic Ellicott City a short drive away. Convenient for day trips to Baltimore and DC.
We are a family of seven living in a home built in 1890 with one, I repeat ONE bathroom.
owner/property manager purchased this cottage in 2014
Historic Ellicott City is less than five miles away; Baltimore is about twenty miles away and Washington DC is forty-five miles away. There's hiking, mountain biking, swimming and tubing available in the lovely Patapsco State Park, accessible by foot from within the neighborhood.
The property is cute and quite! We loved relaxing, even though we had plans around a town not far from the cottage. Loved the fresh muffins Jen left for us and the great communication from Dave. Thank you!
Greatly enjoyed my time and would highly recommend to anyone staying in the area!
My daughters and I traveled to Maryland to attend my dad's 80th birthday celebration, and decided to stay in Dave and Jen's cute "blacksmith shop" cottage. The space was cozy, just perfect for the four of us. Jen provided some yummy fresh-baked muffins. The beds were comfortable, there were fresh beans to grind for our morning coffee. We can't wait to return!
The property was just as advertised. Everything was ready when I arrived. It was wonderful to come home to after a long day of walking and touring:)
I only stayed for one evening, but I will definitely come back and stay in the cottage again. The cottage is well maintained, and has been tastefully modernized with high open ceilings in the main room, and a charming loft over the kitchen. The homemade muffins on the kitchen table are a nice touch, and also delicious.
I look forward to coming back to the cottage maybe early spring of 2017 to check out the rebuilding of beautiful downtown Ellicott City.
My husband was in Baltimore for an interview, and we decided to bring along the family for a mini vacation. It's difficult to find hotels to accommodate large families with small kids, but Dave and Jen were more than happy to work with us. The kids enjoyed having a little more space to play than a hotel and we enjoyed not trying to fit into one tiny room with all of us! All in all it was a good fit for our needs. Their great sense of humor and laid back nature made our visit comfortable.
