About John Morgan
I personally restored the three vacation rentals that I offer through VRBO. It was important to me that they kept their original character and also had the quality to make the apartments luxurious and comfortable.
John Morgan purchased this Apartment in 2005
Why John Morgan chose Fells Point
I bought in Fells Point because it is where history mixes with the charm of downtown activities, pubs and restaurants.

Strategic location and complete facilities, with some drawbacks.
First, the great. This is one of the safest neighborhoods in Baltimore, and the unit is walking distance to many terrific shops and eateries, even the marina. Uber is easy to find for nighttime travel (when I’d recommend it) and also made for a 15- to 20-minute ride to Penn Station or to the Bolt Buses to NYC. Plus the unit itself is decorated in a uniquely tasteful way, including neat repurposing of vintage or original building materials.
The compact kitchen is pretty well-equipped (yes, dishes in the china cabinet are for use!), and the washer/dryer worked great. WiFi was speedy and solid.
The less-than-great included some of the same issues described by other reviewers. The location on a main street and the extremely thin floors and walls meant noticeable street noise even on the top floor, including from truck traffic that goes by periodically at all hours. Never heard much from the bar next door, but the first night of my stay, someone played action movies loudly, directly under the living room, until past 2am.
The steep stairs required to enter the unit and again to access the bedroom made getting things inside and between floors into a bit of a project. Also, a couple areas at the top floor were badly in need of a deep cleaning. I sent John photos of both so he could see why.
John’s approach to hospitality during my stay was puzzling. I mention it because it stood out among the 15 VRBO stays I’ve done in the last year. I received just one communication from him during my stay: a text to say that he'd left an ironing board at the bottom of the first set of those stairs inside the unit. This meant he’d had the door to the unit unlocked, but because I hadn't requested a board, it seemed especially odd---and a bit inconsiderate since that tiny foyer has little room for anything to sit inside it. Why not just mention that he’d like to bring something in, so he could have just arranged to bring it all the way up? But when I texted back to ask if he meant me to take it up the stairs for him, he replied only that he'd like that...and still never even said hello or asked how it was going. Off-putting and odd.
Nevertheless, when I left an important electronic item behind, John arranged for me to pick it up when I was back through town, over a week later, and that was a big help---it pushes my rating back up to four stars, especially assuming the upstairs has now gotten the thorough clean it needed.
I welcome phone calls from my guest at any hour to address any issue, question or comment. John
This was such a charming place to stay. Quiet, comfortable and walkable. We parked the car in the garage at Fleet and Eden and walked/water taxi the whole long weekend. Well worth it. Excellent area.
Very nice cozy place, good location in Fells Point
Small cozy place, very nice, perfectly clean.

Lovely apartment in perfect location
John had every detail arranged even before we arrived. The location was perfect in Fell's Point for what we wanted to do. The apartment itself was was an eclectic mix of historic charm and modern convenience. It was secure and we found it to be surprisingly quiet. We felt comfortable during our entire stay and would love to return.
Thank you, I look forward to your return.
Exactly as advertised - a joy
The apartment is as charming as advertised, is clean and well-equipped, and is a real feeling of "at home" in the middle of Baltimore. It was wonderful to have so much space on vacation. It is easy to shop and parking was not at all difficult. If you want to be in the city, plan to walk 3 - 5
min to a parking spot!
Two blocks from the water front of Fells Point, less than two miles from the stadiums and within walking distance to markets, pubs, antique shops and restaurants.
