The warm welcome we received on a rainy day was really nice. Sabrina is very friendly and a gem at creating a wonderful breakfast with lots of choices. The a variety of rooms gave us space to move about and feel comfortable depending on the mood at the time. I have stayed at many bed and breakfast places over the years and this is small, quaint, nicely decorated and reflects sentiments and the special care to make this a memorable place to stay.

Our two night stay was absolutely perfect. Sabrina and Jack were the most accommodating and friendly hosts. It was peaceful, charming and decorated beautifully. The gardens are gorgeous and the home was the cleanest I've ever stayed. We enjoyed every moment while there. It's location is perfect. We moutain biked at Patapsco Park and also enjoyed the town of Ellicot City for quaint shopping. We will definitely be back.

My wife and I stayed in the elegant Ellicott room for 2 nights on a Google Offers deal I picked up a while back. It was the perfect place just to get away from home and relax. The breakfast both mornings was superb with a little of everything from cereal to fruit and yogurt to pastries to some egg-containing thing that was delicious. The rooms are beautifully decorated, as is the rest of the house. We spent hours just relaxing and reading in the sun room. They have managed to make the place feel as secluded as possible given the location on a fairly busy street corner. It was extremely quiet both nights and the king bed was quite comfortable. My wife and I came away feeling rested and rejuvenated. I don't doubt that we will be staying here again sometime soon.

Sabrina , the innkeeper, did everything possible to make our 10 day stay wonderful. We felt we were truly guests - she did an amazing job accommodating my food allergies. I enjoyed just walking thru the rooms and searching thru the books - it was so peaceful. A great respite from our usually crazy lives at home! We plan to stay there again when we go visit our daughter.

We had never been to the Baltimore area and weren't really sure what to expect. Thanks to Sabrina and her wonderful hospitality, great food, and the amazing house, we thoroughly enjoyed our time in Catonsville. The area is steeped in history and the fall foliage was wonderful. We will be back.

My boyfriend and I stayed at Paradise completely by accident; our plan was to come hike in Patapsco Valley then stay in a cabin in the woods, but they were completely sold out. We drove around the block a few times and happened upon Paradise. I was extremely skeptical and thought it would be like a bad movie come to life. However, he was quite enthused about it and enticed me to get over my qualms. Well, I was pleasantly surprised upon entry how quaint, neat and fabulous it was. Additionally, Sabrina, the proprietor of this awesome establishment made us feel at home from the moment she began to give us the tour. We checked in, ended up hiking for hours in the woods, then headed back and found Fridays on Frederick which was an awesome outdoor music fest. After the fest, we headed back to Sabrina's and sat in her gazebo outside with wine and the Gypsy Kings playing; it was a beautiful night. We slept very soundly on the comfy bed and well climated room. In the morning, Sabrina had an outstanding breakfast waiting for us and we proceeded to ooohhh and aaahhhh over the egg souffle, parfait, bagels, fruit and cereals that were made available to us. We hugged her and left and promised that we would return again, and I think we will!! Thanks so much Sabrina!!

I needed a place to stay at the last minute and Sabrina was able to accommodate my requirements. She was very welcoming and warm, and provided a wonderful and comfortable living space. Her breakfasts were delicious and ... I felt like a prince sitting down to her table every morning. I told her I would return for the breakfasts alone! The room was very tidy with thoughtful little touches that I don't want to give away. It's a really beautifully decorated house, well-maintained, and with nicely landscaped grounds sheltered from the roadway. Sabrina was wonderful and I would choose staying at her BNB any day over any other accommodation when in the area.

This B&B is perfect in every way -- beauty, comfort, tranquility, great food! The hostess, Sabrina Stough, is gracious, attentive & efficient. It is as if one had stayed at a spa, it is so relaxing.
5 on March 05, 2012
I was pleased with my first impression of the home and found it very welcoming. It is close to both Catonsville and Old Ellicot City which I wanted to visit. I did see both places during the winter day and they were charming, but having seen and felt the warmth of the home I wanted to return and read the books and see the antiquities and curl in my bed there and go to sleep more than ever.

This was a wonderful time! A beautiful inn and a lovely host.

Paradise exists in Catonsville, MD. The warm, serene B&B is located in historic Catonsville, MD -- close to Ellicott City and Baltimore. Appointments as well as hospitality are first class. Outstanding inn-keeper, Sabrina, operates with ease and helpfulness. Gorgeous breakfast and ambiance.

So charming, and only just up the street from historic Ellicott City. Sabrina truly knows hospitality. Between the common areas, furnishings, garden, and the breakfast she laid out, you truly felt like you were part of the home.

Sabrena, the innkeeper, was a gracious hostess. She made us feel welcome in her beautiful house. It was immaculately clean and very comfortable. From the time we arrived I had a feeling of tranquility and peace. The Ellicott room was beautiful. The bed was the one of the most comfortable that I've ever slept in. Despite being in on a fairly busy road the house was quiet and peaceful. After a wonderful dinner in Ellicott City, my husband and I enjoyed sitting in the garden room drinking tea and relaxing. I left feeling restored and relaxed. We had an outstanding experience at the B&B and would highly recommend it to anyone coming to the Baltimore area.

We decided to go to Paradise B&B due to a Groupon deal and desire to get away one last time before our baby comes. The B&B was very elegant and classy. There was many interesting books in the sun room and sitting room. Sabrina was a great housekeeper and made us feel very welcome. The Ellicott Room was very nice and the bed was the most comfortable one we have ever slept on. The breakfast was perfect and enjoyed the pastries and bagels. We would love to go back again at some point.
4.4 on July 09, 2011
We stayed in the Ellicot room and were completely pleased with how beautiful and elegant the room was. The home overall has a wonderful antique value about it that was pleasant. Although it was a short visit, it was very warm and the Innkeeper exceeded my expectations with her hospitality. I would definitely recommend this Inn as a great escape.

We enjoyed ourselves immensely. The house was warm and inviting and the room was very clean and quiet. Sabrina was very friendly and takes pride in her gem of a house. It's only a 20 minute drive to the Baltimore harbor. Highly recommend it to anyone visiting the area. Bill and Diane

Sabrina is the most wonderful host at this bed and breakfast. My husband and I were in town for a medical school interview - one of the buttons on my suit was falling off, and she brought out a sewing kit to fix me up before I went out the door! A real life saver. The entire house was immaculately clean, the sheets were softer than soft, and the shower was hot! Sabrina always checked in with us to see what time we wanted breakfast, and she had the most amazing assortment of pastries, fruits, yogurts and cereals (and lots of teas and coffee to choose from). This is the only place I will stay! Not a single complaint.

incrediable bed and breakfast. Sabrina is a wonderful inn keeper and a very gracious hostess. If you visit the Baltimore area you would enjoy staying at the Paradise Bed and Breakfast in a nice comfortable homey atmosphere with wonderful rooms in a accessable location. Thanks Sabrina you are great!!!

Sabrina was an incredibly gracious host who kindly offered us a free one-night stay at her beautiful B&B in honor of Veterans Day. She stayed up late to welcome us, provided us with a gorgeous room, and made us a delicious breakfast.

The care and detail with which the rooms are furnished was astounding. We loved the old-fashioned feel. Sabrina's hospitality was also outstanding as were her breakfasts. Convenient to all Baltimore attractions.

The paradise B&B was a lovely, elegant and well appointed place to stay. The owner, Sabrina was sp gracious and welcoming. It is an exceptional value for the money and I would not hesitate to recommend it.

We had an excellent time staying with Sabrina at Paradise B&B. The house is filled with history, our room was amazing, and overall it provided a relaxing atmosphere very close to Patapsco SP and Baltimore city. I would highly recommend this place and we will stay with her next time we're in town.
5 on May 21, 2010
My husband and I had a delightful stay at Paradise and would highly recommend it. Sabrina was an exceptional hostess and immediately made us feel at home. The house absolutely shines from top to bottom and the decor is brilliant. The food was delicious and fabulous - made by a local bakery. The pumpkin cream cheese roll was to die for! If you are looking for a B&B in the Baltimore area, look no further. Paradise is not only the best value for the money, but the best option all around.

We had a wonderful innkeeper whose gift is hospitality. She served delicious breakfasts and taught us how to make "mitch kaffee". What an enjoyable visit!

How exciting to find a warm, wonderful, relaxing atmosphere in the midst of one of our country's most bustling areas! Paradise Bed and Breakfast is elegantly and tastefully decorated. We found the hostess to be generous with her time in acquainting us with the area's activities and eateries. Our room was quiet and comfortable. We will always stay here when visiting the area!

Comfort and history, convenience and beauty fill this home away from home with all weary travelers could possibly desire! Sabrina is a lovely professional innkeeper! She surprised me with a birthday bouquet and the "continental" breakfast she served was a virtual French patisserie!
3.8 on October 29, 2009
Beautufilly decorated, remnant of a dollhouse. Very sweet, gracious host. One of the most soft, comfortable beds ever slept in. Office room was a nice edition and very helpful. Older house; things tended to creak, and there was a bit of hair around the bathtub and sink upon check in. Other than that, delightful.

The Paradise Bed and Breakfast in catonsville, MD was great. The room had a canopy bed and a plasma TV. It was clean and comfortable. They even had a gazebo out back where we ate a leisurely lunch. I would stay there again.

Our innkeeper, Sabrina, was very helpful and the inn is beautifully furnished. The breakfasts were special! I do recommend it!

I was very pleased with my stay at Paradise B&B. The home is beautifully maintained and my room and the common rooms were very welcoming. Sabrina is an excellent host, very friendly and willing to go the extra mile to make her guests comfortable. I would definitely stay there again and have already recommended the Paradise to friends.

This was like staying with an old friend. Sabrina was startlingly generous with everything from google searches to even rides to where I needed to go!! (I was without a car). I felt instantly welcomed and at home. It was clear that she loves what she does; her care was above and beyond what I have ever experienced at a B and B.

We were looking for a safe, clean, comfortable place to stay while visiting family in Baltimore, MD. We definitely found it! Sabrina was a very cordial and an extremely accommodating Innkeeper. We could hardly wait for the next morning's breakfast. It was peaceful to end our busy days talking in the beautiful sun room. Her attentiveness to personal details was amazing. She became our "in town" friend! We have stayed at B&Bs; and find them to be the only way to go...if you want to be sure of a relaxing and pleasurable time!
3.6 on July 28, 2009
We stayed at the Paradise B&B this past weekend, in order to visit our daughter. It was very convenient as it was within walking distance of our daughter's house. The owner was very nice and folksy, which we so much appreciated. And her breakfast was very good.

My trip was a spontaneous 4th of July trip. Everything was arrange in the last minute. I look up Bed & Breakfast on line trying to figure out what was open for the days I was going to be in the area. Sabrina's location was the only spot available! I called her to make the necessary arrangements for my stay. Sabrina was like an old friend you have not seen in years, she made all the necessary arrangements for me. She pick a restaurant & club that were chic. I had an awesome time and plan to visit Paradise Bed & Breakfast every time I'm in the area. I encourage everyone to visit this spot it's a great place to just relax. Shayla R.

My husband and I stayed here over Memorial Day Weekend. The location of the B&B is perfect for anyone wanting to travel around Baltimore, Annapolis, and DC. Sabrina was very helpful and we really enjoyed our large breakfasts every morning. The rooms are nice with a very comfortable bed. My only problem (because I am short) was that is the mirror in the bathroom was too high for me. I could barely see my head in the mirror, but my husband had no problem at all. Other than that, the house is adorable and this is a great value for what you get.

Sabrina has created a charming, peaceful and fairytale like home away from home. Catonsville has been in great need of such a place for years. Within moments of entering you feel like family. The breakfasts were lovely and served in the bright and cheerful period diningroom. We were told so much about the house. Many locals did not even know it had been opened as a B&B. They do now and we hope that will not mean we will have to stand in line for our next visit. We are looking forward to returning when we will have time to enjoy reading on the wicker furnished sun porch. I would recommend a trip to Paradise to anyone who enjoys feeling very special. Thank you Sabrina for a beautiful experience. Charlie & Doris Sheen

Wonderful stay at Grandma's house without Grandma. Wonderful breakfast, soft beds, and very homey.

My wife and I were looking for something different fr New Years. Every detail was thought out in building this place. The restoration is fantastic. Wish we could have stayed a few more nights. Sabrina was very nice and comforting. The house was very clean and decorated just right for the Christmas holiday. If you are in the area and are thinking of a hotel, think again and give Sabrina a call. You will be happy you did. Scott R

We had a wonderful stay at this B&B. It was beautifully decorated, the beds were very comfortable, every last detail was thought of and expertly addressed. The breakfast was great, too!
5 on October 27, 2008
when I woke up after my first night at Paradise B&B, I forgot I wasn't sleeping in my own bed at my own house. That shows the true comfort of this wonderful home. The perfect place to stay while on business, vacation, or just an excuse to get away from the stresses of life!

We visit my parents at the nearby Charlestown Retirement Community and motels are very "iffy" in the area so this new B & B was a great find for us. Sabrina has done a great job making this grand 1927 home into a B & B. The first floor is available for guests to watch the flat screen TV in the comfy living room with fireplace or read out on the light filled sunroom furnished with white wicker furniture. Breakfast over the three day stay was different very morning. The breakfast is billed as continental because of health regulations but there was plenty of fresh fruit and a variety of bread products. Cookies, candy, and fresh fruit is always available in jars in the dining room if you get the munchies in the evening. We enjoyed the Elliott room with a canopy king-size bed with fancy bed coverings. The room has a LCD TV with cable, an amenity kit if you forget any toiletries, and a large bathroom with a big tub that you can soak in. Their is a shower available in the tub also. Although the house has new plumbing and electrical, the original house details are preserved including in the bathrooms. There is a small office available for guests on the second floor with a high speed Internet access computer. Since I did not travel with a computer, it was nice to be able to check email during our stay. I believe the heart of a good B & B is the innkeeper. Sabrina is doing a great job. We were able to chat with her in the morning and we saw her in the evening to exchange the day's events. She is a warm caring person and should do every well with her new B & B. She had been open only a few months when we visited. We will be back when we return to the area.
