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!

This B&B is in an extremely peaceful and beautiful setting. It is very comfortable and the owner, Ellen, extends great hospitality. Breakfasts are unusual and flavoursome and Ellen always has something sweet in the dining-room to which guests are offered to help themselves.

My sisters and I decided, once again, to run away for Mother's Day 2014 and we selected the Wilderness B&B in Catonsville, Maryland mainly because it was close to home, shopping and restaurants. And the location did not disappoint. The B&B itself is very sweet -- tended to by
