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, slippers, 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 a day 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.

Your own wall mounted AC/Heat and ceiling fans keeps the unit cold in the summer and toasty warm in the winter- and your own thermostat lets you set the temperature. 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, night stand, desk and large closet, there is plenty of space to unpack. Large windows overlook the gorgeous backyard and private great natural light. Luggage racks, your own mini fridge, Keurig coffee machine, Smart TV (internet access) with local channels and Netflix, HUlu, etc will all help ensure a great stay during your time with us! Snacks, coffee and tea are provided.

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

When booking the guest suite, 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.

Rachel offers a great space, and makes you feel right at home. Her place was located perfectly for where I needed to be in Baltimore. The room is clean and the private bathroom was nice. Her two adorable kitties are also great snugglers and are the perfect hosts as well!

I have stayed in many Airbnb's on business trips and Rachel is one of the best hosts I've stayed with . She has all the details covered, business travel friendly accommodations, will provide great conversation, expert area advise or let you have your space if you desire. I ended up with an extended stay and was in need of getting laundry done. Rachel told me to leave it outside my door . When I returned from a long day at work it was washed, dried and neatly folded on the the bed ! Not an expected service but definitely appreciated. Thank you for a great stay !

Rachel's home is PERFECT for families. We travel extensively, and the house was VERY well appointed, especially the kitchen, which had everything needed to make complete meals with ease. The parking is a tight squeeze as other reviewers have mentioned--if you can get by with a smaller vehicle, I would definitely recommend it, as otherwise you may need to park on the street or the parking garage. Location was amazing. Rachel was a wonderful host, and was very quick to respond to all of our questions. Highly recommended property and host!

Well, the house is very beautiful, very clean room, there is a garden, the kitchen is very clean, facilities are complete, Rachel is very enthusiastic, this is a very good experience, you can see how life was an American family. Ah, it is a reminder, because the basement is rented to others, washing machine in the basement, so the owner can only allow guests to the washing machine once a week, if you are in love every day to wash clothes, it is to attract attention, you can only hand wash.

Response from Rachel:
I enjoyed having you here. Sorry if you misunderstood... (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) translate helps- but is not perfect. Guests are welcome to wash their clothes as often as they wish. My cleaning crew comes once a week to wash all the towels and sheets and can ALSO do guests personal clothes at that time as a courtesy for no charge. The laundry room is located in the basement and is shared with myself and tenants in the basement apt. So guests just need to coordinate so they are not doing laundry when other guests are sleeping. To make it easier on busy guests, I always offer that either myself or my cleaning crew can do their laundry for them if easier.

Rachel is a fabulous host. She goes out of her way to make sure that your stay is perfect. She has turned into one of your friends, who we love spending time with on our rips to Baltimore. The house is perfect with all the amenities required. The area is beautiful, a a laid-back vibe.

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 helps me as co-host and co-owner of the Cross St property. 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.
