Welcome was how I felt. I parked in the wrong spot after getting lost going to Christine's but she welcomed me happily when I got there.

We had a very quick visit to Christine's historic home, only staying for one night and leaving early in the morning. However, I have to echo other reviewers' comments that the room and bathroom are impeccably clean. There were extra blankets, toiletries, and an AC and fans. Overall, this was a very comfortable space.

Christine was such a lovely host - she was able to accommodate me even though it was very last minute. The house is gorgeous and fully restored. Toiletries etc are available if needed. Christine checked with me to make sure the temperature in the room was comfortable; it was perfect and there are fans if you need them. The bed is comfortable and the tub is great for a nice soak!! Beautiful location in the country but within easy driving distance of Baltimore and DC.
