Mayflower's Flat in Historic Downtown Frederick

Bedrooms 2
Space 1,400 sq ft
Property type apartment


About the property

This historic building situated in the heart of historic downtown Frederick was built in 1786. It is a two story brick house, which was used throughout it's history commercially on the first floor, where currently a wine shop operates. The second floor has always been used for residents, in former times typically the shop owner's family.

The apartment has 1,400 sf with a beautiful layout, including a full functioning kitchen with a laundry room and can accommodate up to five people. Children are welcome, however, the owner does not take responsibility for children's safety.

The interior was carefully selected with antiques and the kitchen is designed in a French country style setting with modern amenities. Parking spaces are in the rear of the property for two cars.

The front of the building faces Market Street and as you step out, you are right in the heart of vibrant historic downtown Frederick.

Great location and wonderful hospitality

  • 5 of 5

We couldn’t have been treated better by May. She knew we had two young girls and my wife was celebrating a birthday, so she left treats for both. The location is right where all the restaurants and shops are in Frederick. And the parking space was convenient. Great stay!

Convenience all around, unexpected luxuries

  • 5 of 5

If you are coming to downtown Frederick to have some fun, I highly recommend staying at Mayflower's Flat. It is located on the main street that runs through downtown, and is within walking distance of gobs of restaurants and shops. The area around the flat (which has a door that empties out onto the sidewalk amongst several shops) is fine; I wouldn't say any part of downtown Frederick is especially polished, but it's safe and certainly has character. I couldn't find any hotels in this area, so if you want to be able to pop out your front door, walk across the street, and enjoy a delightful, 15-course meal with wine pairings at Volt, then this is your only option. But it's a fantastic option nonetheless.

The place sleeps 5, but it was just my wife and me, so it was comically cavernous, especially the enormous walk-in shower. May has done a wonderful job making the place feel like home. Sure, you're in an old building above a wine shop, but the makeover given to the place combines with the old-time ascetics to make it something special.

May stocked the flat with bottles of water, snacks, candy, tea and coffee, and more, free for the taking. That was quite a perk. The shower was so large it was hard to believe. The linens were nice, bed was fine, TV and internet were provided. No complaints on any front, really.

Just a small word of warning, though, that you are staying in downtown Frederick. We were there on a Thursday and Friday night, and when some of the bars let out (especially Friday) there was a good amount of drunken revelry on the sidewalk downstairs. We were in the queen bed up front, so we heard every bit of it, but we knew we could have slept in the beds in the back of the flat to avoid all of that. It didn't really bother us, but I thought I'd mention it. If that kind of thing really bothers you, then stay in the Super 8 on the edge of town.

Otherwise, check out the flat.

PS - Make sure you coordinate with May ahead of time to get directions to the parking in the alley behind the flat. I didn't do this, assuming I could find the alley. Luckily, May answered her phone and guided us in. But you might not be so lucky, so don't be like me.

Perfect getaway in great location

  • 5 of 5

my girlfriends and I came for two nights three days and this place is perfect. The location is right downtown close to everything. The flat itself is well furnished and well stocked, the owner has thought of a lot of niceties for her guests. It's very roomy for three guest. The owner has done a lot of nice touches that make you feel very welcome. We would recommend it and hope to stay there again next year.

Mayflower's Flat is just amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommend Mayflower's Flat to anyone wanting to see beautiful historic Frederick. It's beautiful inside and extremely comfortable. Big fully stocked kitchen and the most amazing shower/bath you've ever seen. Couldn't have been better located to all downtown Frederick has to offer. Walking distance to most everything. This flat is a perfect choice and I will stay there anytime a trip to Frederick is planned.
