Baltimore Bed and Breakfasts

Tired of hotels, motels, and inns? Try something different the next time you’re in Baltimore - a bed and breakfast. New England isn’t the only place to offer them. A bed and breakfast offers a warmer, cozier and more personal experience than staying in a hotel. Many bed and breakfast establishments are operated by families and often they offer only a small number of rooms. But instead of a hotel restaurant, you get home-cooked meals and instead of a generic one-size-fits-all room, you get uniquely decorated rooms with plenty of charm and character.

There are bed and breakfasts of all kinds in and around Baltimore city. You can spend the night at an elegant Victorian, an art-filled mansion, or a Tudor-style estate. You can even try a boat and breakfast and bed down on the Chesapeake Bay in a cozy stateroom. Whether you are looking for something upscale or something homey, you’ll find it in Baltimore. There are waterfront bed and breakfasts, garden bed and breakfasts, as well as many bed and breakfasts in historic homes. If you need something near the Inner Harbor and Baltimore convention facilities, you’ll find those too.
