I will provide you with detailed instructions for accessing the house and a house manual to make your arrival and settling in as smooth as possible. I am very familiar with the city and will be more than happy to recommend places to eat, attractions to visit, and other points of interest during your stay in Baltimore.
And, since I live here, I generally have at least some contact with each guest during their stay, but how much really depends upon my schedule and yours. In the event that I am away from home during your visit, rest assured that I will be accessible by phone and email throughout your stay and have a caretaker who lives in the neighborhood and is available as well. The NeighborhoodSowebo (South West Baltimore) is a community-chosen name for a historic area in the South West of Baltimore City and encompasses the neighborhoods of Union Square and Hollins Market.
At one point, the area suffered from decades of urban decay but, in recent years, this community has seen increasing gentrification. On its main thoroughfares, West Lombard Street, Hollins Street, West Baltimore Street and South Carey Streets, spacious three-story row houses predominate.
There are plenty of nearby restaurants in the immediate vicinity (1 block radius) including a coffee shop, award winning pizzeria, the oldest Irish pub in the country, a new Mexican restaurant (great margaritas!), a Chinese restaurant.
And if thats not enough, the Hollins Market public market is open 6 days a week and features stalls selling everything from fresh seafood and fried chicken to salads and much more. Also within a short walking distance, you will find a grocery store, a dollar store, nail salon, a bank and several other shops and fast food restaurants.
If you are looking for things to do, you can check out the Edgar Allen Poe house, HL Menken house and the B&O railroad museum, all of which are located within walking distance in this historic southwest Baltimore neighborhood.
The neighborhood is perhaps best known for its annual Arts festival, called Sowebo-fest, held each year in the streets around Hollins Market on the Sunday afternoon of the Memorial Day weekend.
Finally, the University of Maryland's BioPark is a recent addition, with portions still under construction. Getting AroundThe free Charm City Circulator bus (Orange Line) picks up at the end of the block, next to Hollins Market and runs all the way to Harbor East. You can take this bus to many of the points of interest downtown including Camden Yards, the Convention Center, the Inner Harbor, the National Aquarium, Pier 6, Little Italy and the Jewish History Museum. You can also transfer to the Purple, Green or Banner route line to explore other areas around the city.
