10 Clarke is definitely one of the most unique, friendly, and absolutely interesting BNBs I've ever stayed in. The owner, Monique, is lovely and made my SO and I feel comfortable and at home in her beautiful house. Things we loved in particular- the homemade cookies and wine, the fascinating artwork, the meticulous care taken with breakfast (especially the frittatas!), and the porch swing with a gorgeous view that we spent an inordinate amount of time on. It was easy to social distance given the precautions Monique has taken and the walk to downtown Fredrick was about 7-8 minutes. It's also a short drive from wineries/meaderies in the area! We highly recommend this getaway and will definitely be back!
Every aspect of the bed and breakfast experience at 10 Clarke Place reflects the innkeeper’s warmth, hospitality, and passion for the Victorian aesthetic. The location is ideal—within walking distance of downtown Frederick; the accommodations and decor transport you to another era while also offering modern amenities; the breakfast—creative and made with the freshest ingredients—is unforgettable. My husband and I look forward to our next visit! Thank you, Monique.
My wife & I loved it! Plenty of COVID precautions/masks/distancing. Breakfast was broken into 1-hour time slots and there are 3 separate seating areas: dining room, side porch and back patio (both are shady and very pleasant). Great location - just a short walk to the main downtown strip. Beautifully restored historic house. Bathroom was right down the hall and private to us. Loved the glass lighted sink! Bed was very comfy, great amenities provided, great hospitality -- Monique is a wonderful hostess and fun to chat with. The ground level has a huge front & side porch to relax on and a back patio area table as well. The front sitting room is a nice place to relax with the classy soft music playing and drink station. The breakfast was wonderful and very filling. The coffee & tea selection was great - excellent local fresh teas which we enjoyed on the front porch after breakfast. We will be returning as one night was not enough.…
We booked a night in the "Poet's Loft" for an anniversary getaway. It was wonderful. Kelly met us upon arrival and showed us around while describing some of the history and meaning of the many interesting accouterments of the home. We were beyond pleased with the charming Poet's Loft. The turret was especially nice to share a glass (or two) of champagne. My only recommendation would be to add some large comfy pillows to the seating in the turret. The private en suite bathroom was lovely. We were again amazed by the 3 course breakfast in the morning. It was thoughtful and delicious! I would definitely recommend 10 Clarke B&B!
We live 30 miles away from Frederick. Having found an overnight babysitter for our young kids, my wife and I searched for a charming, romantic escape in Frederick. We couldn’t have made a better choice than 10 Clarke place. We checked in a little late, but the hostess Janine was most accommodating and lovely. We walked and found a fabulous dinner at The Wine Kitchen, and returned to our delightful retreat in the Turret Room. Breakfast was unbelievably good the next morning (we chatted with a nice mother and daughter visiting from Kansas). All in all, a great quick escape!
