Cozy little townhouse right outside Baltimore, owned by young tech entrepreneur & philanthropist, and occupied by our young family. Within 10 minutes of BWI, downtown Baltimore and walking distance to UMBC. 30 minutes to Washington DC and Annapolis.

The space

We have a room to spare and thought about getting a year-long exchange student. But for now we've opted to rent to business persons coming to town, short-term exchange students, and other visitors, whether sightseeing or visiting family! This room used to double for everything from office to workout room to cozy reading room/library for us, before doing Airbnb - so it's got a very home-y atmosphere that has that warm feel and ambiance, but also offers very practical features.

The Room has a private half-bath with easy usage of our full bathroom. Your room has a cozy sleeping area (daybed style, custom-built), Bowflex workout system, office for doing a little work or unwinding with TV, and library/sitting area. Wireless internet (WiFi) is, of course, included.

The Room is plenty big enough for a second guest, but keep in mind it would be on an air mattress, so we really only advertise this for 1 guest. (it's your call, depending on your situation and preference :)

Ideal location to do business or visit the sites! Just check out these conveniences, within a matter of minutes:

- BWI Airport (5 minutes)
- Baltimore, downtown (5 minutes)
- Washington, DC (30 minutes)
- Annapolis, MD (30 minutes)
...and much more!

Tons of entertainment and dining options nearby. Also, if you care to stay in, my wife is a phenomenal chef! (she once managed weddings and golf club events at the infamous Hershey (Chocolate) Hotel in PA)

So if it's the right fit for you, please do contact us for more information...

Guest access

Anything a guest needs, pretty much. We like to be laid back and offer the guest the feel of home, w/the autonomy and full-service nature of a hotel - so we're pretty flexible.

Interaction with guests

A lot or a little! We aim to please and are very low-key. We have talked it up night-after-night with some guests who prefer to be social, and even driven them where they needed to be on several occasions. On the other extreme, some guests keep to themselves and do their own public transportation, therefore we allow them to come and go as they like, and we keep to ourselves and don't intrude.

Other things to note

The daybed/sofa is small, but it is extendable with a custom setup we have. Every guest has enjoyed it, and it's a firm sleep, on the scale of firm vs. squishy beds. We just want you to know, in case you have special sleeping/back needs though.
(We also have an air mattress, but never have needed or used it for an Airbnb guest, but we are always willing to offer it, or other arrangements)

My first AirBnb experience and it was way better than I expected. 1. Tom and his beautiful family made me feel home and it's really a peaceful place. 2. I'm someone who believes in energy around the place, the room I had stayed made me feel positive. My stay was short, it would have been awesome if I stayed for a longer time.

Tom's place met my needs for my first week of work nearby perfectly! The area has lots of restaurants and is located in a great spot to get around easily. Tom and his wife were excellent hosts and communicated very well! I will stay here again if I need to be close to work! Becca even baked a cake and made a delicious dinner for my Birthday! Thank you both for opening you home to me!

Tom and Rebecca were very hospitable, they made me feel like part of the family. The room is clean and secluded but you can also hang out with the family of you want. And the kids are adorable!

Tom was great. Extremely good communication, great location, and private, comfortable room, could not ask for more for the price!

Tom and Rebecca are fantastic hosts - they are incredibly attentive to whatever needs you may have; if you need space, you have space but if you would like to socialize, they are willing to share their home and their family time with you. I really enjoyed binge-watching food network with them after work some evenings. I have never had an Air B and B experience that was this welcoming, this warm, and so willing to spend some of their lives with you.
