Interview @ medical center. Owners were delightful, helpful with directions. Location is perfect for Lightrail transportation to airport and within walking distance to many central activities and medical center. Charming furnishings, and reasonable rates. Wish I could have stayed longer. Breakfast was yummy! Also close to coffee shop. Bed was sooo comfortable and room quite. Highly recommend!!

Rachael's Dowry is beautifully furnished, yet a place to relax in. It is right in the thick of things, yet provides a calm oasis. It is rife with history, yet has all the modern conveniences. Norman was an easy going host who made use feel welcome and pampered. After exploring the fascinating Fort McHenry, we spent the weekend walking Baltimore's... More

I stayed for a couple of nights at Rachael's Dowry while in Baltimore for business. I was a bit hesitant to even consider it as a option for business. However, it was perfectly located near the hotel where my training took place and near the harbor. My room was large and well appointed. Tish was a warm and helpful hostess.... More

Tish was very welcoming from arrival until leaving. She was filled with suggestions for places to go and how to get around. She prepared nice breakfasts and I appreciated the Frog reproduction china from a service of Catherine the Great (history nerd alert). The building has been nicely restored. The Odorian room is worth the stay for the historic windows.... More

We stayed here in lieu of the nearby Hilton for a conference, and it was the a wonderful decision. People at the conference were very envious! The house is charming, the rooms are lovely, and everyone takes great care of you. I can really only say great things about this place. You should definitely stay here, even if you're in... More

For our 20th wedding anniversary my husband and I decided to try a bed and breakfast for the first time. Research online led me to Rachel's Dowery. Tish's warm, southern -style hospitality, along with her delicious breakfasts will keep us coming back for more. This place not only has authentic historic charm (George Washington stayed here) but it also is... More

Rachael's Dowry provided us with a perfect base from which to explore Baltimore. Our room was spacious and airy and had lovely proportions. We flew into BWI airport and took the Light Railway to the closest stop to Rachael's - just a 6 minute walk away. The breakfasts were special: delicious, carefully prepared, and what was served changed each day... More

Rachel's Dowry gets it. Everything is done right — nothing cheap, nothing cheezy — and avoiding the trappings of frill-laced B and Bs. A beautiful restoration, architecturally intact, and attentive service. And at it's core, friendly people. What's not to like?

Friends met for a fun weekend in Baltimore and we booked this B & B a few months ahead of our stay. Glad we did because the Orioles were in town and moving into the playoffs. The B & B is a few short blocks from the stadium and that also meant it was convenient to a lot of good... More

Rachael's Dowry was my first experience at a B & B and I cannot wait to go back! The B&B is absolutely beautiful and the history behind the building is amazing. The room I stayed is was large and decorated extremely nice. The bathroom with a tub in the middle of the room was so spectacular! Then I got into... More
