Hollerstown Hill
Ranked #2 of 6 Frederick B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 17, 2012

We've had our eye on staying in Frederick for quite a while. Hollerstown is one of the two B&Bs in downtown Frederick and received better reviews than the other option. We found it to be a great value - within walking distance to all the shops and all the amazing food downtown has to offer. Most of our interaction was with Betty and she seemed to be just the right type of person to run a B&B - great sense of how to make an environment feel homey, and she's a good cook. There were dolls and other figurines, but hey, don't we all collect something? It gave the B&B some really unique character and a theme. I snuck a peek at three of the four rooms and really loved the one with the purple bedspread, but thought the one with the balcony would've been nice so we could've enjoyed the amazing weather we had this weekend. The place has a nice wrap-around porch, so we enjoyed our beer outside on the porch after a long day of shopping. The neighborhood itself was beautiful and quiet with easy street parking. Everything was so close, that we didn't need to move the car at all during our weekend stay. We really enjoyed our meals out at Black Hog (bbq), The Tasting Room (new American cuisine), and a Japanese restaurant n by the canal. The museum of Civil War Medicine is a must do and the Candlelight Ghost Tour was a nice way to walk off some of those heavy meals. We didn't do any antiquing, but we heard from others to hit Patrick Street if this is your thing.

If you're okay with getting in your car and exploring the area, you could easily stay at the B&B for days. Gettysburg, D.C. Annapolis, vineyards, etc are all short day trips away. The only thing we didn't do that we're sorry we missed was the Flying Dog Brewery Tour - you really need to schedule this months out, so I've already reserved a tour for us in the fall.

Thanks Betty for taking such good care of us! Your orange smoothies were the best - I'm already missing them.

Room Tip: Queen Anne's is a nice room, but has twin beds Request the room with the balcony if you like to...

My husband and I had a wonderful weekend getaway in Frederick. My cousin, who lives in the area, had suggested this property to us. We couldn't have been more pleased! Our room was quite spacious with a large bathroom. The location is very nice...on a quiet street with several very large Victorians right across from Maryland School for the Deaf. We were 2 minutes from the shops and restaurants of the Historic Downtown. Phil & Betty (your innkeepers) were just lovely. They both have the perfect personality for this job. They are full of advice and anecdotes on the Frederick area. And the breakfast was great!! Request one of Betty's fruit smoothies. It was a refreshing change from standard juice. We will return.

My husband and I took a quick overnight trip from the DC area up to Frederick to have dinner at Volt for our anniversary. I selected Hollerstown Hill for it's proximity to Volt (a short 20 minute walk through historic downtown Frederick) and the positive reviews here. What a pleasant surprise! The pictures on their website do not do justice to the lovely home that Phil and Betty opened up to us. It is beautifully decorated and very clean and comfortable. Betty met us at check in to provide a tour of the home and the invitation to make ourselves feel at home. There was complimentary water, soda, coffee, tea, cider and wine on the main floor as well as snacks. The breakfast was delicious and lovingly prepared. It was fun talking to Phil and Betty during breakfast, they were very engaging. We stayed in the Cottage Garden Room and enjoyed a glass of wine on the balcony before heading off ot our dinner. When we returned, we really slept like babies in the very comfortable bed - soft sheets, comfy mattress, and nice pillows. There was even a little antique bowl of chocolates for a before dinner treat. We hope to go back again some day.

Room Tip: We liked the Cottage Garden Room and the nice balcony overlooking the garden, but all of the rooms l...

My wonderful husband and I had a lovely stay at the Hollerstown Hill Inn. The decor is very Victorian, cozy and comfortable. The innkeeper has an extensive collection of dolls and ceramic figures on display. There's a terrific billiards table in the parlor. The house is lovingly cared for and furnished.

Our room was large with an ensuite bathroom. Our only complaint is that the corner sink is quite small...but that is a minor matter. The mattress was comfortable and our room overlooking the backyard was very quiet. The room has a lovely balcony that would be a great place to relax in warmer weather. There is free wireless and a TV...which is totally unnecessary, but nice to have during football season. Breakfast was plentiful and so nicely served. The meal was similar to what I would serve for a Sunday Brunch. Coffee was superb. Oh yes, there's wine, beer and other beverages in the refrigerator near the dining room. A very welcomed touch. The innkeepers are very friendly and knowledgable of the area.

Our mission for the visit to Frederick was dinner at Volt....an easy walk from the inn. There's great antique shopping and many dining venues in the downtown area. I hope we can return there soon.

Room Tip: Our room overlooking the back yard was very quiet. The other rooms we saw were very nicely furnis...

The room was very spacious and the mattress and bedding were quite comfortable. Phil and Betty are very pleasant people. A little on the talkative side, but we aren't much for socializing in the morning. The house is a short walk to down town and parking was very easy. The only negative from our end was the dolls. Holy cow, if you have any bit of a "Chuckie" phobia, be warned. A little creepy.

Our room was very nice. The mattress was firm, which gave us a good nights sleep. It was very hot outside, but the house was comfortably cool. Phil and Betty are very nice and friendly people! So pleasant ! Dogs not yappy at all! I saw one review that complained about the number of dolls and other decor. Well, it is decorated for the period, big deal. The place was clean; the porch very inviting. The breakfast was a bit too sweet for me and my husband; sweet homemade pastries, a pancake/turkey sausage casserole was sweet with little sausage. The peach/strawberry smoothie was delicious (after a long night of wine and dining, it was refreshing) Coffee excellent. We will be back!

Room Tip: The house and rooms are great!
