“Don't stay anywhere else in Baltimore!”
Reviewed 6 April 2012

I loved staying at Rachael's Dowry this past February! I spent nearly 2 weeks there and had a wonderful time. The B&B is absolutely beautiful, exceptionally clean and the food is amazing! Tish and Norman are some of the nicest people that I have ever met and will go out of their way to make sure everything about your stay is perfect. Don't waste your time staying anywhere else while you are in Baltimore!

Room Tip: I stayed in several of the rooms and they were each wonderfully appointed and very comfortable.

I have stayed at Rachael's Dowry B&B more than 10 times now and each stay was better than the last! The rooms and other areas are all beautifully appointed with charming touches, and the whole place is exquisitely clean. Norman and Tish are wonderful, warm, and welcoming, and go out of their way to ensure that each guest feels at home. I wholeheartedly recommend Rachael's Dowry!

Room Tip: All rooms are a great choice!

My husband, daughter and I had a lovely stay at Rachael's Dowry this weekend. We were in town for an accepted students day at MICA. The inn is beautiful, with fine antiques and furnishings. We stayed in the Carrie Frank suite, which was perfect for the three of us. Tish is so nice, and she prepared us a delightful breakfast. The bed was incredibly comfortable, the sheets crisp and clean, the towels thick, the room quiet and very comfortable. We had a great night's sleep. Thank you Tish for your hospitality. We only wish we could have stayed longer, your B and B is beautiful! The next time we are in Baltimore, we'll be calling!

Spent three nights at Rachael's Dowry on my first visit to Baltimore. The charming, beautifully appointed inn set the stage for a great visit. Norman was an engaging host, providing a history of the inn, cooking great breakfasts, and providing information about the area. Cookies, water, wine, tea always available. Wonderfuly library. The rooms are comfortable (loved the fireplace!); the inn is quiet; the area safe. Parking in the rear. The Inn is in the Camden area of Baltimore, directly across from the stadium. The Inner Harbor is about a 15-minute walk away; access to City Circulator and buses are near. I would stay there again -- it's much nicer and less expensive than even the moderate hotels. Restful.

Even though I had worked in Baltimore for 8 years back in the 1990s, I had no idea this charming little historic neighborhood was there. Everybody raves about Fell's Point, but this little gem gets no press. Rachael's Dowry is a 1798 colonial house, perfectly restored just a few years ago. My historian husband found it on the Internet because he is VERY fussy, and as the number one B & B in Baltimore, it caught his eye. The restoration is stunning, with original floors (not kidding!)

We weren't disappointed. Our room was gorgeous and very spacious, with a king bed and a real fireplace (fake flickers look very pretty, and it's also a heater if you want!) Very quiet street, too. Since I had a medical appointment at Hopkins early the next morning, we couldn't eat, but Tish kindly sent four warm cranberry scones along with us so we could eat after my tests. YUM! We'll go back again soon just for the pleasure of it -- and we live three hours away! Well worth it ...

Room Tip: I think all the beds are king except for the queen on the third floor. Comfortable and authentic-loo...
