The space

This listing is for private guest room and private guest bath on the 2nd floor of an owner-occupied townhouse in the heart of mid-town Baltimore City in the historic Bolton Hill neighborhood. Spacious and airy unit room gets great natural light and is very quiet.

As a fellow traveler, I have brought home ideas from hotels around the world- including high thread count linens and towels, slipper, robes, hair dryer, iron and anything you might need but forgot (toothbrush, toothpaste, etc.) The bedroom sleeps 2 people.

Guests who stay for more than 2 days are welcome to use the kitchen and living room on the first floor. The owner lives on first and second floors and has two very friendly cats who roam the entire house freely and like to greet guests. Unit is accessed from front door- and up two short sets of steps.

Central air/heat and ceiling fans keeps the unit cold in the summer and toasty warm in the winter. Fresh towels and high thread count linens are provided. Flexible check in/check out time may be available by prior arrangement.

Access the apartment through a modern, beautifully furnished townhouse located in gated, tree-lined courtyard. The sound of the fountain in front will make you forget that you're minutes from downtown Baltimore.

The house is the perfect location for quick access to an Orioles or Raven's game, the new Horseshoe Casino, Inner Harbor, Hopkins, MICA, U of Baltimore, U of MD Grad schools, Penn Station or a show/concert/play at any of the city's many venues. Everything you need is provided, just bring your toothbrush! (though we have a spare if you forget yours)

Furnished with a queen bed, and large wardrobe, there is plenty of space to unpack.

There is a small fridge, and coffee maker for guests to use in the morning.
Snacks, coffee and tea are provided.

The tiled bathroom offers a shower/tub compb and massaging shower head. Fresh towels, shampoo, conditioner and soap are provided. Hair dryer, iron and board and pack and play/crib are available. Forget something else? Just ask. We've likely got you covered!

When booking the basement unit, you get more than just a place to sleep. All guests are welcome to enjoy the beautiful outside grounds, including all the courtyards and walking paths with beautiful fountains, trees and flowers. It's like a secret garden in the middle of the city.

Guest access

Guests who stay for more than 2 days are welcome to use the kitchen and living room on the first floor, and the backyard.

The front courtyard and green spaces are for all guests to use and enjoy.

Interaction with guests

The host or a friend will be home to greet guests arrival and show you around, answer any questions and get you situated. This is an owner-occupied property so hosts will available as needed.

But respect the privacy of our guests. Once settled, guests are welcome to as much or as little interaction as desired.

Rachel's place is a gem in close vicinity to Johns Hopkins Hospital. I was doing an away rotation at the hospital and could not have rented a better place! Very clean, cozy, with easy street parking available. Rachel is very accommodating and thinks of everything that could make your stay better. The room was fully furnished and i really felt at home there. If I am ever in Baltimore again, I will definitely rent from Rachel! I highly recommend this especially for those who are in the area or especially anyone who is working at Johns Hopkins University hospital.

Friends say I am the Host-ess with the Most-ess who has never met a stranger!
I have been hosting, families and strangers in my home for many years... whether overnight, at one of my many gatherings or just for dinner. So hosting Airbnb guests in my home was a natural extension. My goal is always to ensure the best stay possible for my guests. Here in my home in Bolton Hill, I have hosted short term guests since 2007.

It takes a village... my brother David and my friend Ann help me as co-hosts and co-owners of the Cross St and Linwood Ave properties respectively. And if you stay long enough, you will meet our amazing cleaning crew led by Blanca and her sisters! And if you stay at our Bolton Hill location, you'll meet my two feline co-hosts-- Alfie and Sebastian.

They say if you do what you love, you'll never work another day in your life. I left a 15 year career in government and politics to do this full time. Some days I am still amazed that I get paid to do this.

I love the sights, tastes and sounds of Charm City and welcome the opportunity to share some of my fave things with you! Need some restaurant or entertainment suggestions? I'm your girl!

In addition to my own properties, I cohost and assist other airbnb hosts with their listings! I also serve the board of directors for a number of local organizations and volunteer with and support a few different animal rescue groups and shelters/transitional housing for people who need a little help to get their lives together. Both my kitties - Alfie and Sebastian- were rescued strays. AirBNB helps me support the great work done by some amazing, dedicated people.

My love for gardening and flowers can be seen in the beautiful courtyard I share with my neighbors and private backyard. I am a member of several neighborhood associations and the Bolton Hill Garden Club which works very hard to raise money to help beautify the neighborhood.

David works as an attorney for the Federal Government and is a graduate of U of Maryland Law School. He has been a resident of Federal Hill since 2010 and now lives around the corner in Otterbein after moving out of the Cross Street house so we could make it into a full time airbnb.

Ann is the the owner and co-host for our Patterson Park Linwood property, Ann loves to travel both for work and fun. She understands the needs of a business traveler and helps us ensure all our properties have everything the business traveler might need or want. She is a former Baltimore City resident and currently resides in Washington, DC when not traveling, where she has additional properties.
