“Hidden Gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2013

We stayed in the best room in the place...the Edgar Allen Poe room. It was reasonably priced in December and so romantic and cozy. The king sized bed is super-comfortable and the electric fireplace and subdued lighting set just the right mood. The bathroom is as spacious as any bathroom in your own home and has all the nice touches like an extravagant shower head, full sized tub and complimentary bath robes. Having never stayed in a B & B before, we didn't know what to expect with the breakfast fare. It was upscale all the way! The portions were amply sized and the menu was anything but run-of-the-mill. Late afternoon snacks were served and ice and beverages were available 24/7. On a nice street in the Federal Hill section, we were easily within walking distance of everything, from attractions in the Inner Harbor to delicious local restaurants. We would definitely love to visit this B & B again, maybe in warmer weather!

I had a great stay at Scarborough Fair recently. The owners and staff were friendly and helpful, breakfast and snacks were delicious, and the electric tea kettle in the kitchen was a nice touch. My room, as well as the rest of the building, was beautifully decorated, clean, and comfortable. The gas fireplace and 2-person Jacuzzi were especially enjoyable. The location is superb, within easy walking distance of the Inner Harbor. A parking pass is provided for a nearby lot, which is very helpful as it is difficult to find street parking in the area. I would recommend this B&B to others.

Our family gathered at the Scarborough Fair over the recent Thanksgiving holiday, and we were delighted with our accommodations. Professional staff provided warm friendly services and responded readily to all our needs including special attention to a vegetarian member of the group. The location is just great for enjoying the inner harbor of Baltimore including the very neat Federal Hill neighborhood. Lots of pubs and eateries to choose from within easy walking distance. We will definitely be choosing to stay at this B&B in the future.

If you are a fan of B&B's, this is one to keep in mind if you're visiting Baltimore, MD. It's located within walking distance of the Inner Harbor and has a nearby parking lot. Lots of cute touches around, plenty of clean rooms, and wonderful breakfasts, which were very innovative and filling and served in a nice little dining area off the main lobby. We thoroughly enjoyed this stay and will visit again should we be in Baltimore.

Room Tip: Try the Edgar Allen Poe room if you don't mind stair climbing. Authentic decorations, a Sleep N...

We had a wonderful stay at the Scarborough Fair. Upon entering we were greeted and enjoyed all the amazing Christmas decor. We have been to many bed and breakfast spots in the area and this by far was one of the most thoughtful and personable stays we've had. The staff was professional and friendly. The breakfast was delicious. Our favorite was the softness of the linens. It made us feel right at home.

My husband and I visited this great little gem three days prior to Thanksgiving as a birthday surprise for me. What a lovely place to spend a little time...beautifully decorated,quaint and charming. The staff was friendly, attentive and made great suggestions on what to see,eat and do.
The breakfasts were hearty and tasty and the treats left out for the evenings were delicious! Every detail aimed at a comfortable,carefree stay was thought of. I wouldn't change a thing...and will remember our stay with fondness! I certainly would recommend this B&B to friends and family as a place to relax and enjoy,

Conveniently both close to and removed from the Convention Center platz for a multi-day conference. Room and bath were very comfortable, well appointed; good water pressure, hot water supply, and a "waterfall" shower head. Breakfast was good and Kara kindly accommodated my menu preferences quite thoughtfully and spontaneously. She and Katrina offered a warm welcome and orientation. Snacks in d.r. and fridge were lovely. Free parking a block away is a big plus. Great info about the area.
Flip sides: had to call on the phone from the front door to get in; only got new shampoo when I asked for it; single thermostat in the upstairs hallway discourages adjustment for personal comfort; minimal available space for relaxed reading/visiting outside the bedroom.

Room Tip: Franklin Room is quite adequate for a single, could be a bit cozy for a couple. Limited work space...
