Notel 9 is a cozy, private 'self-contained' B&B-style guest space with unique furnishings, a full bath with a vintage claw foot tub, a dry-heat sauna, and a private street entrance off a shared yard in a great Baltimore City neighborhood.

The space

Notel 9 is a self-contained B&B-style guest space with a cozy bedroom, a private full bath with claw foot tub and a dry heat sauna and a private entrance off of a shared yard. A hidden gem in one of the coolest neighborhoods of Baltimore - Upper Fells Point.

The bedroom has a double bed with an antique brass bed frame from Argentina, a small area rug, a small wardrobe, a chair, reading light, ceiling fan, a trunk for your suitcase, and a cabinet set up as a mini-kitchenette.

The bathroom has a wonderful antique porcelain claw foot tub as well as miscellaneous toiletries. The sauna has ample room for relaxing and stretching out and there is access to a large shared yard.

Guest access

Guest's accommodations are completely private and "self contained". Guests have a private, well-lit entrance off a main street in Upper Fells Point with an private entrance into the quest space from the yard.

High speed wireless internet, coffee, tea, sugar, creamer, and filtered water are available in the room along with a mini-refrigerator, microwave, French coffee press, electric kettle, utensils, plates, wine glasses and cups. There is also a iron & ironing board, hair dryer, curling iron and a small heater. We will also provide linens, towels, soap, shampoo, and homemade bath salts.

Interaction with guests

Joe and I live next door and will be available for guests during check in as well as for questions or information about the accommodations or area.

I don't remember exactly how we came up with the name "The Notel" over 14 years ago, but I know at the time we thought it was funny and it stuck. The name, by no means however, insinuates that we are seeking, encouraging or willing to tolerate nefarious behavior.

If you are eating in the room, please keep crumbs to a minimum as city pests are shrewd opportunists. Leftover food items should be disposed of in the trash cans behind the sauna instead of leaving them in the trash receptacles in the space. We request that you recycle. Wash out containers or secure with lid and store in basket provided. Once full, please empty the basket into the recycling container next to trash can behind the sauna.

Please hang the bathroom rug on the tub after use so that it can dry. Also - always use the fan when using the tub so that the room gets air circulation.

When coming and going, please lock both the Notel9 door as well as the sally port door (sally port is the name of the passage way from the street). Please do not bring people home with you and no smoking in the room. Please treat the space, and its furnishings with TLC. Also - there is a tenant who lives in the main house, so be respectful with the noise level.

When you "check out", please place all used towels in the tub, put recyclables in recycling container behind the sauna, and all dirty dishes in the basket. Please also unplug the electric kettle and small space heater. Don't worry about making the bed as we will be strip the bed to wash sheets.

This property is nestled in an historic and artistic part of old Baltimore. The lodging is clean, comfortable and uniquely decorated. The hosts are wonderful people should you wish to engage them. If opportunity arises, I will book again.

I can't say enough good things about the Notel! My boyfriend and I came to Baltimore for a wedding. Lisa and Joe had great communication. The location is excellent. We really loved the neighborhood, very walkable. Every detail/ information was thought of/ provided for us. These lovely people are genuine, artistic and doing wonderful things for their community. We were even lucky enough to share in a Labor Day BBQ with them! Thanks again Lisa and Joe and the awesome neighbor Sue deserves a shout!

I am very happy to have chosen this accomodation. Communication with Lisa was pleasant and easy both before and during the stay. The house has a nice location near the city centre. I received good advice on restaurants, jogging and safety. I would come back on future visits in Baltimore.

Lisa and Joe were very sweet hosts. This was our first airbnb experience and it was perfect! They were very flexible considering we were driving from Florida to Baltimore and unsure of our exact arrival time. The art placed around the home and the outside seating area was amazing and set the pace for our trip. It was very cozy and the sauna is a huge bonus! I will only hope my next trip that they will have availability and we will definitely stay again! Thanks for a great stay! Steph and Mike

The Notel was the perfect place to stay for a trip to Baltimore. We had tickets to the Orioles for Saturday night and the neighborhood is very convenient to fells point and once you're in fells point it is easy to get to inner Harbor with the ferry. The apartment was clean and we enjoyed our time out in the backyard. We would definitely stay here again next time we go to Baltimore.

Lisa's place is a great little spot. It is close enough to get to Inner Harbor or Fell's Point by the water by whatever transportation means you'd like. It is located in a nice area with a lot of local art and community care. The room itself is very well described - it's cozy and private. Lisa is a great host and we'd stay again!

Although quite the globetrotter up through my mid thirties, when I moved to Baltimore, I began putting down roots while working on a Masters in Social Work. For the past 16 years, I have dedicated my time and energy to home renovations, community organizing, volunteering for Upper Fells Point Improvement Association and social work with women victims of domestic violence, the Latino immigrant community and now in education. I am married to Joe, an amazing artist, and we spend a lot of time putting his creative talent and our personal touches into a couple of old houses here in B-More which we rent out. We love to b-bop around the city, listening to live music and going out for dinner with friends. No kids but there is the amazing canine, Izzy, and feisty feline, Louie.
