We visited Baltimore with another couple for the weekend, and stayed two nights at Wilson House. The first afternoon, my wife fell off her bike and was badly bruised. Our hostess, Clelia, had several magic ointments and got down on her her knees to minister to my stricken wife. Clelia was also an excellent breakfast cook and a delightful person. Our talkative host Guy was also very helpful, furnishing wine, whiskey and playing cards. The only negative was that our room, the Wilson Room, faced Route 83 and was alive with car noise. Our friends room was quiet. We would definitely return to this charming B & B.

Room Tip: Don't face Route 83 if you mind traffic noise.

My husband and I decided to do a weekend getaway and went to Wilson House. What a great experience that was! And, it was our first b&b! We love that historical house. From the time we got there, until the time we left we were treated extremely well. The Wilson room was soooo charming. The location was fantastic. It was only 10 minutes away from the Harbor, and close enough to anyplace else we wanted to go.

Guy was a darling. He was so knowledgable about the Baltimore area and t;s history. He was gracious enough to take us for a tour of his Reservoir Hill neighborhood because he realized we were interested in the properties in the area. Who else would do that! Clelia made us delicious breakfasts each morning consisting of fresh fruits, waffles, french toast and the like. And, to top it off, we were even served on China and crystal. What a treat!

We definitely recommend going to Wilson House if you plan to visit Baltimore. Staying there really topped off our mini vacation. We'll definitely go back.

Room Tip: The Wilson Room is spacious, and has its own bath.

We stayed here for one evening for graduation from Johns Hopkins - it was beautiful! We stayed in the Purple Room and the Wilson Room - both were great with separate bathrooms. The location was ideal, it was just a few minutes from campus and just a few minutes from downtown Baltimore!

We just stayed at the Wilson House for the third time, as a vacation extender to break up our drive back to NYC from NC. We first stayed there two years ago when we were in Baltimore for a wedding, and returned 6 weeks later with friends to attend a rally in DC. We came upon it by Google search, and the photos just don't do it justice, it has so much character. There are so many neat things to look at from their world travels, I love to wander each floor. We stay in the Peacock Room which is the king-sized master suite with a sitting room and huge walk-in closet. This time, we had our 10 month-old baby with us, and Clelia made sure we had everything we needed. She provided a great mini-crib, a high-chair, and for breakfast brought Henri a banana, cheerios, and a bib. She is awesome with babies. He had so much room to crawl around our huge suite, and was mesmerized by all the colors on the walls! This room is overlooking 83, the AC drowns out most sound during hot months, and when we stayed there off season we used one of the two fans. I often travel with my own white-noise machine as I am pretty sensitive to noise, but we don't really notice it here. We missed Guy this time, but love his company, he has many stories to tell about their treasures. This is the type of place we will visit at least every other year as we enjoy a Baltimore weekend away from NYC and are so comfortable here.

We feel we lucked into this B&B. A charming house, almost a little museum in itself. We were warmly welcomed by Guy. Clelia's breakfasts are beautiful. Luscious fresh fruit, and everything so prettily presented. Very special pancakes, very special waffles--and terrific coffee! There are comfortable common spaces for sitting, and Guy and Clelia were very generous about letting us "tour" the kitchen and pantry. Interesting, lively conversation with them. They gave us good advice and good directions. And there is lots of convenient parking right next to the B&B. There was nothing they could do about the heat outside (over 95), but everything else was perfect. Our stay was, despite the heat, superb.

Room Tip: We were initially sorry that the Wilson Room was not available. But the Flower Room turned out to b...

We were in Baltimore for a weekend visit and cycling. The Wilson House was a little bit outside the Inner Harbor area but it was a fantastic place to stay. The house is beautifully decorated and very spacious. The innkeepers, Guy and Clelia were terrific hosts. Guy was very knowledgeable of Baltimore and offered interesting tips and places to visit. We thoroughly enjoyed visiting with him over wine and cheese. Breakfast was not only delicious but the presentation was beautiful. It is obvious they both go to great lengths to make your stay enjoyable.

Room Tip: All the rooms were nice and spacious with all the little extras you always wish were there. They th...
