My husband and I travelled from New Jerey to Maryland for a birthday party and found this wonderful B&B in the woods which turned out to be this huge mansion owned and operated by the most wonderful woman Ellen. She single-handedly operates this B&B while working fulltime. Our room was extremely clean - the mansion is filled with antiques and... More

Each year, a few guys from high school get together somewhere in between our home locations to take in a ball game, hit some golf balls, but mostly retell stories, renew friendship, have a few beers etc. The Wilderness was a great place to do this - a great facility. It only took us about 20 minutes to get to... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Nestled between the rolling hills of the Patapsco Valley State Park, outside of historic Ellicott City, The Wilderness Bed and Breakfast offers a tranquil, rural setting for guests seeking to "get away from it all". Conveniently located 15 minutes from downtown Baltimore and BWI airport, 35 minutes from Washington, DC, it is a short drive to many Maryland landmarks. Catering to historic house lovers, The Wilderness Bed and Breakfast has been lovingly restored to its former country manor atmosphere. Although the original home on the site dates to 1799, the current structure is the result of a major addition and renovation by a wealthy Baltimore industrialist in 1899. You will find peace, quiet, great home baked goods, comfortable beds and an opportunity to abandon routine - come out for a visit and get lost in your dreams! ... more   less
