We chose Wilson House B&B on the basis of price ($110 plus tax) and proximity to our daughter's apartment in Waverly. It was about 2 miles and a 10 minute drive away. It was also reasonably close to Centerstage and two excellent movie houses, The Senator and The Charles. While the house is adjacent to a interstate 83, the house itself was quiet. Having the highway at our doorstep was a major convenience.
We stayed in "the purple room", with clawfoot tub and european style shower. The water was really hot and easy to control. The bed was easily the most comfortable, that is firm, bed we have every shared in any hotel or b&b anywhere.
Breakfast was delicious. Clelie and Guy provide elegant serving pieces to complement the excellent breakfast, pictured below. A platter of fresh kiwi,banana, orange, apple, grapes and pineapple along with what seemed like either fresh-squeezed orange juice or indistinguishable from it. Next came omelettes because we prefer low carb choices and declined homemade pancakes, which i have heard were delicious. Guy told us that Clelie was new to cooking eggs, but you would never know it upon forking her omelet "baveuse" french for juicey Along with the omelet there was a perfect strawberry and hash browns, then coffee. We didn't help ourselves to yogurt because it was politically correct low fat, non fat or activia and we prefer plain 4% yogurt, hard to find, but really best.
in short, this is a wonderful choice for a b&b in Baltimore.
