I was at Rachael's Dowry for 3 evenings and found the inn quite relaxing after a day of work at the UMD School of Medicine. The innkeeper prepared wonderful breakfasts and provided a great introduction to the history of the neighborhood. Beyond that, he provides a nice brandy in the library with which to end an evening spent in nearby... More

We contracted Rachel's Dowry for our wedding. My husband has a business two blocks away (for 20+ years), and we never know it was there! Norman and Tish's professionalism and attention to detail was unmatched! From the initial tour to the "I do's," we did not want for anything. In addition, we rented five of their sleeping rooms for our... More

An extraordinary experience; extremely well managed, the historic home, built in 1798, is not only immaculate and beautifully restored, but also comfortable and homey. My husband and I were looking for a quiet, comfortable and convenient place to stay while exploring Baltimore; what we found was so much more. We parked our car in their lot and went everywhere on...

As a native "Baltimoran," it was a pleasure to have an opportunity to be a guest in my former hometown! This B&B is a treasure! Staying at this well-located Inn helped turn a weekend of family duty into a lovely weekend of exploration and comfort! The Inn is beautiful and so well-maintained! There is simply nothing that could have been... More

I booked this as a quiet last hurrah with my family before moving cross-country. We wanted something charming, quiet, and pretty close to both the city and the airport. We went during the off-season so we were the only party there when we arrived. Our innkeeper, Tish, was incredible. Parking and check-in were easy, amenities were great, and the service... More

We had a lovely anniversary weekend. The room was cozy and private and the hostess did an exceptional job being helpful, but unobtrusive. The bed was sooooo comfortable and the library is perfect for gardeners :)

I surprised my daughter with a cake decorating class at Charm City Cakes and wanted to stay somewhere special. Rachael's Dowry was perfect! Norman was so welcoming and helpful. The whole house was lovely and breakfast was delicious. It made for a perfectly charming trip. I'm looking forward to coming back with my husband!

I just retuned from my second visit to Rachael's Dowry B&B and it was just as spectacular as my first trip last summer. Tish is the quintessential hostess, overseeing a beautifully restored historic home with every last detail addressed in beautiful fashion. I stayed in the Audrey Genevieve room - I felt like a queen, it is elegance defined. The... More

This historic B&B is clean, classy and close to so many Baltimore attractions. Once we checked in for the Star Spangled Banner Spectacular (October 2014) we walked or took public transport everywhere we went. We enjoyed breakfast with other guests who were there for the Yankees/Orioles games. We shared lively bantering and lots of information about the area. The B&B... More

This B&B is Baltimore's gem. The building is filled with history and run impeccably. Food is delicious and location is convenient to Inner Harbor neighborhood. We'll be back and hope you plan a visit.
