My girlfriend and I had a very enjoyable stay at Rachael's Dowry. In our experience of B&Bs, "historically-authentic" and "really comfortable" are usually mutually exclusive descriptions, but in this case they went hand-in-hand. There was great attention to detail evident throughout the house, from the exterior to the living and dining rooms. At the end of the day we could...

Thank you so much for the excellent review - although it's my amazing guests who make it all worthwhile! I really enjoyed the two of you, and am looking forward to your next visit. I like the challenge of the dietary concerns, so I love it when a good gluten-free pancake comes off!! Keep well, and I'll see you again...

We arrived to Baltimore for a conference and were so glad that we stayed in Rachael's Dowry instead of a hotel. The place was so quiet even though it was close to the city center. The house was beautifully furnished with antique, yet well-maintained furniture, all was clean and nicely arranged. We visited Baltimore for the first time and Linda...

My husband and I were traveling through Maryland and decided at the last minute to stop and stay overnight in Baltimore. After reviewing several options, we found Rachael's Dowry Bed and Breakfast. One quick phone call and two hours later, we were walking into this beautiful home. Linda greeted us and gave us a quick tour around. What a breath-taking...

The house is a paradise of calm. Linda has a unique talent at making every visitor feel at home and providing great tips on how to make the best of your visit to Baltimore. Every day started with a fine breakfast that makes your day in culinary terms. This means something in Baltimore! Wonderful experience - anbefales til alle!

We had no issues. Innkeeper called to check dietary restrictions, make sure we had directions and to see if we needed parking. The place itself was perfect, nice decorations, beautiful brick, but still has tv, wifi and outlets. It's within walking distance of the oriels stadium and we only had to wait like two minutes for an Uber. It was...

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!

For the past 4 years I've taken my wife to Baltimore for her birthday and we've stayed in a bed and breakfast.

We stayed here for two days during the Thanksgiving holiday. We found Linda - and her sister - to be very amiable and gracious.
