Gramercy, a majestic Tudor style mansion and estate, situated on 45 acres in Maryland's Greenspring Valley, provides elegant hospitality. Guests enjoy the Olympic size pool, tennis court, extensive woodland trails, Honeybrook Stream, a working organic farm, and classic flower gardens. In addition to five spacious public rooms with fireplaces, the mansion offers antiques, oriental carpets, artwork, a stunning grand staircase, chandeliers and a serene garden atrium. Railroad magnate, Alexander Cassatt, brother of Impressionist painter Mary Cassatt, presented this historic house as a wedding present to his daughter. Later occupants included the Brewster family, descendants of Benjamin Franklin, and Koinonia Foundation, a predecessor of the Peace Corps. The Carriage House and Gramercy Mansion are also available for weddings, meetings, seminars and parties. Located 20 minutes from Baltimore’s Inner Harbor, Gramercy provides easy access to museums, historic sites, theater and fine restaurants.

We chose Gramercy as an anniversary getaway only a few miles from our home, and the setting and amenities were sufficient to make us feel we had journeyed far from Baltimore even while only minutes away from it. If you wander around the grounds you'll find some unkempt areas, but these are certainly not evident from the main house or its rooms. We chose the Blue Garden Suite, with fireplace and jetted bath, and found it very comfortable. However, the room could use a small amount of refurbishing, in particular new wallpaper. Breakfasts were well prepared and served by friendly staff. Unlike some other B&Bs, Gramercy is set up with individual tables rather than a group table for all guests; this allows for cozy, private meals but doesn't encourage getting to know the other guests. One item for those with pet allergies: they keep a long-haired cat on the premises, and I found myself sneezing (etc.). It wasn't a major problem, but you should be aware. Finally, our New Year's week rate was high. We did enjoy ourselves, but I would think twice about the price next time.
Thank you very much for staying with us during the holidays and for taking time to share your experience! We appreciate your feedback as it helps us to continually improve our accommodations and services. I've shared your comments with our owner and we're in the process of making some updates to the property during our slower winter season. If price is a concern, we do offer reduced winter rates December - March, excluding the week between Christmas and New Years and some holiday weekends. But you can definitely take advantage of those discounts and room of the month specials during the rest of the year. We would love to welcome you back for a future getaway. Thank you again!

My husband and I recently stayed here for our wedding anniversary. We had stayed previously. It did not disappoint. The room was lovely and the property is lovely. The flowers and lovely trees make this a very romantic place. Our room had a small porch with a table and chairs, so we could sit outside. The room had a flat screened TV and cable service. There was also a microwave and a small refrigerator. They were stocked with water, sodas, and microwave popcorn. The bath had a large jet tub that fits two people. The bathroom was large and also had a walk in shower. Robes were in the closet along with beach towels. There is a pool, which we used. We were the only ones at the pool so it was very serene. Breakfast the next day was excellent. You order from a menu the night before and you can eat in the dining room or have it delivered to your room. We did the latter. There are many choices including waffles, pancakes, eggs, omelet, oatmeal, fruit, and juices. The staff is very friendly. The rest of the mansion has a large dining room and several sitting rooms.

My husband and I wanted a romantic, somewhat local getaway without the local feel. The Gramercy was the perfect place! Still close enough to Baltimore if you want to drive into the city for dinner. We stayed in the Camelot suite this last weekend and it was beautiful. I asked that they put some tealights in the room to add a little more romance, and the staff went above and beyond by placing rose petals, flowers, and candles in the room for us. Breakfast in the morning was wonderful as well. They definitely took care of our every need!!
Thank you so much for staying with us and taking time to share your experience! We're so happy you enjoyed the romance of the Camelot Room - one of my favorites. Definitely come see us again. Stay in touch on Facebook and join our mailing list online for promos and specials. Thanks again!

What an amazing place for such a "beautiful" wedding... Everything in the venue was at best the most amazing experience. A day to be remembered by our family and friends for a long time to come. Thank you Gramercy, for making my son's special day, such an Epic event. And thank you William for all your help, you truly are an extraordinary person. That breakfast was fabulous, couldn't ask for anything better.
Thank you very much for sharing your experience at Gramercy! We were honored to be a part of your son's wedding day and so glad everyone enjoyed such a special celebration. Hope to welcome you back as our guest in the future!

Sorry for ripping off another reviewer's title, but it really does say it all. The secluded, peaceful, and just gorgeous location, wonderful mansion and grounds, truly excellent food (the best B&B breakfast I've had), at a great price make this a very special place. Enjoy.
Thank you so much for sharing your review! And we definitely hope you'll stay with us again soon!

What a great facility! Full of charm, antiques, and flowers. The grounds are wonderful to walk around, are well-kept and populated by antique statues, benches, archways, and other surprises. The food and service is wonderful. It IS an old building, so don't be surprised if the wood floor squeaks, but it is just enough to give character. The rooms are VERY well appointed and I wouldn't change a thing. I'm also Googling the mattress model to buy for my home because it was a wonderful night's sleep.
Thank you so much for the terrific review! We're so glad you enjoyed staying with us... and aren't the beds amazing? What would a B&B be without a super bed and delicious breakfast, afterall? We work hard to continue improving and providing great service and amenities for our guests. Thanks again!

My husband and I stayed at the Gramercy Mansion for a weekend, we wanted to celebrate our anniversary somewhere special. We have never been to a bed and breakfast but this truly met our expectations. There is near by dinning called Tark's Grill that was super good and you can dress up and enjoy some wine there as well. We stayed in the Ambassator's room where there was a fire place, we used it both nights, really was warm and cozy! Very inviting atmosphere in the mansion and the staff was very welcoming. The free breakfast we had both mornings was very good. Coffe was brought up to our both mornings too! I would truly recommend this getaway to anyone , we loved it and would like to visit again sometime.
Thank you so much for staying with us and taking the time to post a review! We're glad you enjoyed your anniversary getaway. Come back and see us when the gardens are in full bloom this summer or for one of our wine dinners by Chef's Expressions! Happy anniversary and thanks again!

We've been to many B&B's and the Gramercy Mansion is our favorite for many reasons.The staff is very warm and friendly and the rooms are impeccable down to the smallest detail. Comfortable beds, plush towels, magnificent decorations, gas fireplace create a memorable experience. The breakfast is the best we've ever had and having the ability to choose your menu the night before is an added feature. It's nice to have your day begin with coffee waiting at your door at no extra charge. The peaceful grounds with walking paths and several species of natural birds create a relaxing atmosphere. The Tudor mansion itself with the surrounding acres transport you back in time to a wonderful England estate. If you ever thought you would like to visit Downton Abbey, save your money and visit the Gramercy Mansion. Don and Cynthia Shaker Heights, Ohio
