Location: 637 Washington Blvd., Baltimore, Md.
Drive time: Two hours.
Cost: $149-$209 (double occupancy).
The scoop: First, the location: an easy walk from all of Baltimore’s attractions, including the Inner Harbor, the Orioles at Camden Yards and the Ravens at M&T Bank Stadium. Then there’s the ambiance of the six-guestroom inn, a combination of 18th- and 19th-century Federal and Victorian, furnished with antiques and period pieces. Much of the original 1798 architecture remains intact, earning the building listings on both the National Register of Historic Places and the Maryland Historical Trust.
Amenities: Rate includes home-cooked breakfast, and each room features a working fireplace.
Don’t miss: The parade of “Bawlmer” beauties at the annual HonFest—a two-day extravaganza of beehive ’dos, blue eye shadow, spectacular eyeware, spandex and leopard prints—scheduled for June 11 and 12.
