Wonderful Stay

Outstanding stay at Wilson House!

A Rare Find

5 on September 26, 2012

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying with Clelia and Guy last weekend. Our needs and expectations were met and surpassed, much to our delight. Once through the door it's like entering a small french maison, with a soupcon of history thrown in for good measure. I've traveled all over Europe and have yet to meet more fascinating inkeeps than Guy and Clelia. En plus, the food, room and hospitality were splendid as well. We will be back. The Friedlands

Great Room, Impeccable Service

5 on November 23, 2011

Stayed one night in the Peach room and Clelia and Guy made me feel welcome from the moment I arrived. Room was well appointed with a super comfortable Queen bed and the bathroom was clean and functional. Breakfast was cooked to order and superb. My stay could not have been better. I will stay here anytime I return to Baltimore.

Wilson House Immaculate and Comfortable

My husband and I and our two adult daughters recently stayed at the Wilson House for three nights and we were very impressed by the house and the hospitality. The wonderful food that Clelia prepared combined with the immaculate house and comfortable beds made our visit so pleasant. We will be returning to stay at the Wilson House at future visits. You don't get this time of service or atmosphere at a hotel.

Wonderful get-away destination!

The Wilson House was a wonderful place to go for an evening away. The host and hostess, Guy and Clelia, were friendly and helpful, The house was clean and comfortable, and the breakfast was excellent! We have already decided that we would love to return as an annual destination! Elissa Eisner, PA

Victorian Refinement

5 on December 14, 2010

We stayed at the Wilson House in November, 2010 as we were attending a benefit for Juvenile Diabetes at the Railroad Museum. The time spent at the Wilson House was lovely. My cousin and I felt very comfortable in this charming Victorian Mansion. The service provided by Guy & Clelia and her Momma was very special. Time spent felt as if we were a part of their extended family. To our delight we arranged a driver to the event with Guy. His driver, James gave us exceptional service and a driving tour of Baltimore and to our event. We stayed in the Flower Room. It was a hike upstairs to the third floor in this over 11,000 square foot mansion; yet very good exercise for the week-end. Conversation was fascinating with both Guy and Clelia discussing science, current events, antiques, the history of the Wilson House and learning about the country of Bolivia. It was a memorable place to stay and when I return to Baltimore, I hope to stay there again. We had the benefit of using our gift certificates from Bed and Breakfast.com and Guy and Clelia graciously accepted these for our stay. If you want to enjoy the old world charm of the Victorian era, you will have a delightful stay at the Wilson House, where days are quiet and peaceful and you can imagine life and the refinement of daily life was in the early 1900's. We also came away feeling that we made four new friends. I hope to go back again. Alexandria, VA

Great Bed & Breakfast

4.8 on November 08, 2010

We loved it!!! My wife & I stayed there for our anniversary. Coincidentally we got a free upgrade to the Master Suite. The rooms were big and spacious. The common areas were beautifully decorated. The hospitality and generosity of the owners, Guy & Clelia, exceeded our expectations. Its a great place to stay and would do so next time we travel to Baltimore.

Can't wait to visit again

5 on September 19, 2010

This was our first visit to Baltimore and we're so glad we decided to stay at the Wilson House. We found it through this site, and we made the right choice. The house is gorgeous, on a beautiful tree-lined block, the proprietors friendly and helpful, and the breakfasts nutritious and yummy. We stayed in the Peacock Room, it was huge, clean and comfortable, and I loved the decor, so much character. It is on the side of the house facing I-83, so at first we thought it might be loud, but it was remarkably quiet, with the fan on low we couldn't hear anything, not even any noise within the house. The bed and bedding were very comfortable and they have good room darkening curtains. It was very convenient for us to jump on 83 to head to Fells Point for antiquing or to the Inner Harbor. Plenty of good food and nightlife nearby on Charles Street. We had a lovely, relaxing albeit brief stay, but we plan to make Baltimore and the Wilson House a regular getaway from the craziness of NYC.

A wonderful B & B

5 on July 05, 2010

My entire family went to this B & B several months ago when my son got married. Guy Thomas and his wife were exceptionally welcoming and friendly. We really took over the entire B & B because there were no other guests. We were just so happy with everything, we recommend this B & B highly.

Be.st stay in Baltimore, I travel frequently to visit my MICA student, and was referred by friends. I own a cleaning service and am quite particular, so was very impressed by the sparkling, lovely home. Rooms were warm and cozy, quiet and restful. Breakfast was delicious each day, and the hosts extremely accommodating. I wouldnt stay anywhere else! Excellent value, all around experience is delightful.
