Covid-19 Update: Per the new cleaning guidelines established by Airbnb, the apartment will be entered no earlier than 24 hours after previous checkout for cleaning and disinfecting. Currently, due to the severe Covid 19 outbreaks in these states, we are not accepting reservations from residents in the states of FL, CA, AZ, GA, or TX. We have added a $10 cleaning fee to our rental price as a result of the new cleaning guidelines.
Blacksmith shop built in 1855 and converted to lovely 1100 square foot cottage with open, hand-axed beams and decorated in rustic style. Full kitchen, bath, queen bed bedroom loft and large great room with tv area, wood stove and two queen beds. Detached and very private. Plenty of off-street parking. No parties and no smoking!!! Ping pong table has given way to two queen beds in the main room but we just love the picture and can't duplicate that shot with our crappy cellphone cameras!
We are 1/2 mile from Sykesville's Main Street - the 2016 Coolest Small Town in America. There are a lot of events in town, many walking paths through-out the community, a train that runs along the Patapsco River and through brick tunnels built in the 1800's. Nearby McDaniel College, Stevenson College, Patapsco State Park and Howard County Fair Grounds. You are less than an hour to Gettysburg, Antietam, Harpers Ferry, Baltimore, and Frederick, and about 1.5 hours from Washington, DC.
