My fiancé and I stayed at Rachael’s Dowry Bed and Breakfast, for a staycation to celebrate our engagement. The cleanliness and the Covid-19 procedures were phenomenal. I felt very comfortable staying at this bed and breakfast, for those things alone. Now onto the stay! Linda the Innkeeper is amazing! From the initial calls to confirm details of our stay to the lovely welcome tour of the home, it is obvious that she cares about her guests, the history of the building/Baltimore, and the creation of wonderful impressions of bed and breakfasts in general. The decor, hospitality, food/snack offerings all work to highlight the history of this building. We stayed in the Ella Virginia Suite on the top floor. The clawfoot tub was a nice addition to this room. And my fiancé is still talking about the soft bedsheets! Also, if you get a chance, don’t forget to try Linda’s Carrot Cake Pancakes for breakfast. We can’t wait to return to this bed and breakfast.

We stayed here for a weekend in September 2020 and it was AMAZING! Linda has a ton of covid protocols (masks for everyone, leaving 48 hours between rooms being used etc) and we felt very happy with them. She is super interesting to chat to (ask her about the NZ rugby team!) and the breakfasts were delicious (and huge). She gave us great ideas of what to do. Easy walk to the Inner Harbor. We had the Ella Virginia Suite on the top floor and it was super comfortable with beautiful furniture. Oh, and there is parking! We will definitely be back!

A wonderful place filled with history and beautiful decorations. My wife and I stayed here over our honeymoon, and we loved it. Linda is extremely welcoming and cooks splendid breakfasts! Plus, it's only a light walk away from the inner harbor, making it a perfect location.

We stayed here for two nights and had the most relaxing and wonderful time. Linda is the innkeeper and could not have been more accommodating. The rooms are very clean and well appointed. Our room had a balcony. Linda is a gourmet cook and the breakfast that she made was delicious both days. She asked us what we would like and accommodated our tastes. I would highly recommend this B&B. My husband and I were truly impressed.

My wife and I recently traveled to Baltimore for appointments at Johns Hopkins Hospital and rather than staying at a more modern hotel at Inner Harbor, I decided to surprise her with a stay at this historic bed and breakfast. We are really glad we got to stay here. Linda was very attentive and accommodating. Traveling during this Covid pandemic is very different and unusual. Linda was very in tune with the restrictions and suggestions for social distancing and took extra precautions to ensure her inn was extremely clean and her guests were safe. We had a couple of free days and Linda helped with suggestions for some sightseeing. Although most sights were still closed, we enjoyed taking the train in to DC. The Camden station is a short walk from the inn and the train took us straight in to Union Station. We also visited the beautiful Hillwood Estate and Gardens about 30 minutes south of Baltimore. We enjoyed walking each evening to nearby restaurants that were serving meals and drinks outdoors. Linda is a great host and cook. We enjoyed talking with her each morning and evening and she really helped make our visit memorable. Our schedule was different each morning and she adjusted breakfast plans to accommodate us even packing a “to go” breakfast one morning to take on the train. We plan to return a few times a year and will make sure to stay with Linda each time… Did I mention the bed was the most comfortable bed ever???
