I've lived in Maryland almost all my life, been to many O's games and plays at the Hippodrome, etc, etc, and had no clue this was within a few hundred feet of wherever I was! It's a beautiful, solid 1798 home, and Linda who has only owned it since October has made it a welcoming alternative to the typical hotels...

This special place is a cozy getaway deep in the center of the city. We were able to walk to many attractions and restaurants and had easy access to our car for places further out. Linda is a very attentive and warm hostess and a spectacular cook. We loved our time there and would definitely go back.

I appreciate your feedback! It is convenient both to downtown and with the parking lot right next door. Keep an eye out for wine weekends and other special weekends we're planning the next few months. See you again!

We recently stayed there over the Christmas holiday and it was an amazing experience from start to finish! First off, Linda the new Inn-keeper was so sweet, helpful, and attentive to all our needs/requests from the time I made the reservation thru to the time we checked out. On our first nights stay, Linda gave us an awesome tour of...

For the past 4 years I've taken my wife to Baltimore for her birthday and we've stayed in a bed and breakfast. This year I decided to surprise her and switch from 1840's Carrolton Inn to Rachael Dowry's. I can truly say that we found Rachael Dowry's a great surprise. I found the booking process very easy through the online...

I'm so pleased that your birthday surprise worked so well, and thanks for sharing about our little "hidden gem"! Hopefully now it won't be quite so hidden! Really looking forward to seeing you again next December, if not before.

We stayed here for two days during the Thanksgiving holiday. We found Linda - and her sister - to be very amiable and gracious. When we arrived Linda gave us a brief tour and history of the house; upon completion she walked us to our room. The room was clean and I have no complaints. Our bedroom and bathroom were...

This was our first stay here and also out first b&b!! We loved everything. The house is just beautiful and Linda made us feel so very welcome. Breakfast was definitely worth getting up for even though we were out quite late the evening before. So much is within walking distance. We loved our room and look forward to trying another...

Just one night but we got the same great welcome and friendly care that others report for longer stays. There's evidence of thoughtfulness throughout...the decor, the rooms, the service. Plus free parking! The location is great- walking distance from Camden Yards and the Convention Centre and the Harbour, as well as Light Rail and bus stops. A peaceful and well-run...

This was my first stay at Rachael's Dowry B&B; 6 nights during an intense business schedule. Location in a quiet oasis, close to Inner Harbour amenities, and within 5 minutes of Convention Centre / Light rail made this the perfect spot, supplemented by everything that I could have hoped for: beautiful and spacious period-style room with excellent en-suite facilities; tranquility...
