About Carolyn Greiner
My husband and I began building our life together in Frederick in 1977. He's a cancer researcher, and I'm a retired municipal official. We live outside Frederick now to shorten his commute, but we plan to return in a couple of years. We discovered VRBO years ago, and we've used it to find places to stay in Florence and Paris. We love exploring the neighborhoods where we visit, and hope you do, too.
Carolyn Greiner purchased this House in 2013
Why Carolyn Greiner chose Downtown
I had watched this property for years, and had an itch to rehab another property. Fortunately, we found that marvelous rarity--a contractor who PREFERRED to work on historic properties, and had the skills to do it well. I feel great that we were able to take a seriously decrepit and long-vacant structure and give it a new life. It should be good for another 100 years! The location of Creekside House, in the center of town on a park that has been rehabbed and features a creek filled with water lilies, and restaurants and cafes along its banks only added to my desire to rehab it.
What makes this House unique

My wife and I enjoyed our stay and Carolyn couldn’t have been more gracious. Looking forward to our return trip!

Perfect location for girls weekend focused on shopping, eating, relaxing and having fun. Home is centrally located and within walking distance of everything historic Frederick has to offer. Cozy and perfectly decorated. Owner was very nice and very helpful. We had a wonderful time and would highly recommend to others!
Beautiful home and very clean. Loved the outdoor garden area. Would come again for sure. It would be nice to have more comfortable seating in the living room.
Convenient and clean and cool
Outstanding stay at this perfect location. Love it! Thank You so much
I loved having Clint stay; he’s an organized, well prepared, observant guest who communicates well and is prompt to the minute! On top of that, he left the house in great shape!
Creekside House has a great central location, within easy walking distance of boutique and antique shopping, theaters, museums, restaurants, Hood College and recreational facilities. The MARC train and bus stations are three blocks away.
Frederick is approximately 45 miles west of Baltimore along Interstate 70, and 45 miles northwest of DC along Interstate 270. Visitors with private planes can arrive at Frederick Municipal Airport, home base for the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association.
If history is your thing, Frederick is your place! Whether staying close to Creekside House and exploring local museums and historic sites, or choosing a central location from which to make day trips to Gettysburg, Antietam, and Civil War sites in northern Virginia, perhaps topped off by taking the train into Union Station to visit the Smithsonian, a vacation in Frederick offers enough interest and variety to please most folks.
You might be surprised to learn that Frederick was the home of the country's first president (and he wasn't George Washington!) In November 1781, John Hanson became the first President of the United States in Congress Assembled, under the Articles of Confederation. Washington visited-- and Lafayette, and Francis Scott Key, and Barbara Fritchie, and Lincoln, and Jubal Early.
Frederick was a 'jumping off place' where travelers and explorers outfitted and prepared to cross the Allegheny Mountains to settle the west, for they could follow the Potomac to its headwaters and after crossing a few miles of the Eastern Continental Divide, enter the headwaters of streams which carried them to the Ohio and Mississippi rivers. The Lewis and Clark expedition took on provisions here.
Sports enthusiasts can stroll less than a mile south on Market St. to take in a Frederick Keys game at Harry Grove Stadium. The Class A Minor league team is an affiliate of the Baltimore Orioles. Skiers from the DC and Baltimore areas can make a short 35 minute hop to Ski Liberty.
Or they can bring their clubs and sign up for a tee time at Clustered Spires, the municipal course less than 3 miles away with a 4-star rating from Golf Digest. Real golf addicts could stay for two weeks and play a different course in Frederick County every day.
The City and County provide bicyclists with wonderful opportunities for rides at many skill and endurance levels, and maps showing routes are available at the Tourism Center across from the MARC station, or at http://www.visitfrederick.org/what-to-see-and-do/frederick-county-heritage-bicycle-tours. Some of the tours are 'themed,' featuring Civil War sites or the C&O canal, or covered bridges, for example. A short bicycling video is at www.youtube.com/visitfrederick
Combine history and easy hiking in tours of The C&O canal or the Monocacy Battlefield, or challenge yourself a bit more on the Appalachian Trail or trails in Catoctin Mountain Park or Gambrill State Park. Easiest of all is to take one of the history tours of Frederick's downtown.
Frederick County is well-endowed with streams and rivers. Fishing in our mountain streams or canoeing or kayaking on the Monocacy or Potomac Rivers are great ways to relax and recharge your batteries while enjoying nature.
