Beautiful, spacious loft-style apartment in barn on historic farm 25 miles northwest of Baltimore. Quiet, lovely, and peaceful, surrounded on all sides by farmland in conservation. Perfect for a relaxing, tranquil getaway, but within easy commute to Baltimore metro area.
A spacious loft style apartment with a large open living room, dining area & kitchen on the first level. Wood burning stove in LR, with wood provided by the hosts. Radiant heat on first floor and 2 ceiling fans. Modern kitchen with stainless stove, fridge, and dishwasher, including microwave, toaster oven, and coffee maker -- but no garbage disposal, as we're on a septic system. Main bathroom on ground level has been recently upgraded with tub and new tile, etc. Bathroom has stackable W&D on first floor. Library in 2nd floor loft area. Bedroom with antique double bed and 1/2 bath on 3rd floor. Bedroom has wall unit AC/heater. There is a small balcony overlooking a walled flower garden.
This is the ideal get-away for a weekend or a few weeks. You'll see no neighbors, wake up to the sun rising over the rolling fields, sip your coffee at the table on the balcony--with great views to the surrounding 100 acres--relax on the cozy couch and (on a cold day) watch the fire roaring in the wood stove (unlimited fire wood provided free), take a break to watch the birds from the huge wall of windows, spend a couple of hours browsing through the library on the second level, where you'll find all kinds of great books, then pop a DVD into the player downstairs and watch a classic movie--selected from the large in-house DVD selection--or stream a movie from the free wi-fi. And, if you want a little exercise, walk the grounds, where you'll find all kinds of natural treasures: a huge array of flowers and plants and some old trees of historic proportions, including one of the biggest beech trees in the state.
Our 6-acre farm is just at the outer reaches of the NW Baltimore suburbs, in northern Reisterstown. The town of Reisterstown, 4 miles away, has an historic downtown. Westminster, 8 miles north, has a larger historic downtown and is home to McDaniel College. Both towns have nice restaurants and other local attractions. Just south of Reisterstown are Owings Mills, Pikesville, and Towson, large metropolitan suburbs of Baltimore. All have a large variety of restaurants and shopping. Owings Mills has a subway station (only 15 min away) that travels into downtown Baltimore. We are only about 20-25 min from Pimlico racetrack in NW Baltimore. We are just 35 miles south of Gettysburg and many Pennsylvania attractions, including historic sites, orchards, parks, antiques, flea markets, and local ice cream. We will provide guests with an extensive list of local resources and favorite food stops.
