Great location; helpful innkeeper

4.6 on December 26, 2014

The rooms are large and so well appointed. We loved being so close to many of Baltlimore's attractions. Innkeeper made adjustments for my wife since she has some dietary restrictions -- and he was glad to do so. A very enjoyable experience for us.

You will have a wonderful time

Really, you will. Read the other reviews if you don't believe me. It's lovely. Roger and Cecelia are terrific company. The breakfast is delicious and features freshly-baked scones and cakes, all of which are delicious. The rooms are huge, clean, comfortable, everything. I've been talking about Blue Door on Baltimore since I left. I'm very glad I went - bet you will be too!

If you need a place to stay in Baltimore and are looking for historic charm, pristine surroundings and a SUPERB breakfast then the very quaint and authentic Blue Door on Baltimore is a must! It is a lovely restored row home located in the historic Butchers Hill location. I have been to many B & B’s and I attest to the fact that Roger’s breakfast omelet is the very best I ever had at any B & B! Roger shared his culinary secret to making the lightest and most deliciously delicate omelet ever! I also had the best night’s sleep in a long time – the owner says it’s the sheets – honestly. Experience Roger and Cecila’s Blue Door B & B the next time you’re in Baltimore!

Baltimore "GEM"

This was our second stay at Blue Door. We were so excited when we had need to return to Baltimore because we knew we'd have the opportunity for another delightful visit at Blue Door. We even got to stay in the same room as before. The weather was perfect for us to utilize the balcony outside our room. Roger and Cecilia really have thought of every little detail down to even providing wine glasses with opener, if needed. For business travelers, like us, they provide access to a printer and internet and a nice work space desk in the room. Roger is an excellent chef and we enjoyed delicious omelets with fresh veggies and home made breakfast breads, scones, petite biscuits, etc. They have also added self service access to their delicious coffee served at breakfast. So if you're up early, you can still have a great cup of coffee before going down to breakfast. When you stay at Blue Door, you really feel like you are visiting friends because you feel so comfortable and relaxed. Oh and the best part was the yummy treats left as part of the turn down service. Home made chocolate chip cookies, ginger snaps, white chocolate fudge, fruit, We looked forward to returning each evening to discover our special treat.

GREAT B&B in Baltimore 2 blocks from Johns Hopkins

Roger & Cecelia are wonderful hosts. The Blue Door is a lovely property, wonderful bed, bathroom, linens. Homemade cookies and fruit with turndown. My husband and I plan to return as a couple; this trip I stayed there for his surgery at Hopkins.

Baltimore is now on my "worth visiting" list!

The Blue Door is an excellent place to stay, especially if you have appointments at the nearby Johns Hopkins Medical Center.

Best place to stay!

The best stay I ever had in a B&B! Wonderful place, hospitable people, suitable for allergy sufferers and vegetarians, delicious breakfast, clean rooms and incredible helpfulness. I´ll be back!

Treated like a Queen!

One of the very best experiences at a B&B that I've ever had! I will be returning.

The best B&B in Baltimore

This was our third stay at the Blue Door and every time it's terrific. We won't stay anywhere else when we're there. It is always a pleasure. The place is immaculate, the beds comfortable, and breakfast delicious. Roger is a fabulous host!

First-Rate B&B Experience

5 on April 08, 2013

I've never been to such a beautiful B&B where attention to every comfort and detail was so apparent. Roger's engineering and systems background is obvious in the way this gorgeously restored old building has been modernized to be both classy and comfortable. There is much here to delight the eye and the taste buds. The rooms are well thought out, with plenty of storage and hanging space, and lovely small amenities. The spaces feel both modern and respectful of the high ceilings, brick walls, and stately windows that grace the traditional row house architecture. The surprise treats with turn-down service are a delight, particularly the signature tiny chocolate chip cookie pastries, paired with fresh fruit. Roger presides in the kitchen, and breakfast is served formally, starting with an assortment of home made scones, tea biscuits, and sweet breads, with fresh fruit, and followed by eggs to order or cereal and yogurt. On the weekends, breakfast is even fancier, and Roger will regale you with historical facts about Butcher's Hill and the story of The Blue Door. I was so impressed with the amount of thought that is apparent in every aspect of Roger's and Cecelia's business, and recommend The Blue Door highly for your visits to Baltimore.
