The SpaceThe room is most of the lower level of a three level townhouse. The bedroom area does not have it's own door, but there is a heavy curtain to provide some privacy.
It is a full size bed that can cozily fit two, with a twin size trundle bed that pulls out from below.
Along with a private half bath and optional private entrance from the back garden, you also will have private use of a mini-fridge in the room. The kitchen is open for cooking (electric stove, dishwasher, kettle, french press, toaster, microwave, etc), please clean up.
There is a fireplace in the sitting room and a large dining room table that is also open for use. Guest AccessYou'll have your own access to the lower level of the house that includes bed, television, arcade, and private half bath, with optional private entrance. You'll have shared access to the kitchen and common areas, and the upstairs bathroom for showering. Access to washer and dryer available for guests staying 2 nights or more. Interaction with GuestsI love hosting. At a minimum, I will meet you when you arrive to ensure you are settled in. I work mostly from home, so am around most of the day, but also am able to provide privacy if you want some downtown. I can send you to the local indie coffee shop, or brew you a pot and chat. It is really up to you. The NeighborhoodMy home is in a development called Box Hill North right off of Rt 95 about 20 miles north of Baltimore, MD. It is a quiet neighborhood of mixed single family and townhomes. My home is an end unit townhome near the community center. Despite being a suburban development, there are some really cool local businesses, and you are not far from either Baltimore or Aberdeen, as well as the local downtown of Bel Air. I can easily point you to chain stores within 1 to 5 miles (from Wegmans to Target to Panera, etc) or to little independent gems. There is a Wendy's, a Walgreens pharmacy, a grocery, two banks, a dry cleaners, pizza place, pub/bar, barber shop, and post office all within walking distance. Getting AroundThere is very limited public transportation directly to my neighborhood (a bus line runs nearby on the main road). However, the neighborhood is not far from the Aberdeen Amtrak station (about 20 min drive). Also, if you wish to spend the day in Baltimore without driving in, there is a MARC (local train line) stop in Edgewood that has limited commuter service to downtown Baltimore. Other Things to NoteThere is one spare parking shop, plus three visitor parking spots available in our home. I have friends in and out sometimes, so it may not always be just me at home. I also have a teenager living at home with me. Family-friendly, pets under very limited consideration.
