Anniversary Staycation

5 on February 26, 2017

We are locals and this has become our yearly anniversary staycation, this was our 2nd visit and we celebrated 15yrs this visit. This time we stayed in the fall room...last time was winter. It's a very lovely place, nice and quiet and the breakfast is delicious! Last year it was cold, but this year was beautiful weather, so walked around downtown a bit (something we don't generallyndue, even though we are local) and it was all around a very nice visit! Yummy cookies in the lobby and hit and cold drinks too!

New Year's Eve in the Loft

Wonderful room, fantastic tub, cozy fireplace, lots of room. The rubber duckies were an amusing touch. And the game room was really neat. We did not take advantage of the onsite dining, we walked down the street to the French place for crepes. Don't let the claim that another room las their largest tub, we had a gander at the other rooms and ours was the largest from a usefulness standpoint. The other may hold more water, but would not be as roomy for two to fit in.

Excellent Bed and Breakfast. Breakfast is only served on Sundays and we stayed Friday night. The room had an in room 2 person jacuzzi tub that was wonderful along with a gas fireplace.

Beautiful House and Neighborhood

The room looked like something from a dream, the entire house was beautiful, the little town of Sykesville is just precious and is a comfortable walk away (be sure to try the French crepe place down the hill for breakfast!) There are nice places to visit in Sykesville, but the bed and breakfast is also within an hour or two drive to Baltimore, Washington D.C., Sandy Point beach, and other great places to visit.

Great place to stay

It was a very nice Bed n Breakfast. There were some very nice touches. I would stay there again if I was in the area.

Beautiful honeymoon stay in the Loft

4.6 on November 07, 2016

Norwood is a beautiful property tucked away in old-timey Sykesville Maryland. Kelly, our innkeeper, was very communicative and quickly responded to our many inquiries by email. She accommodated a late check-in, arranged for fresh flowers and petals in the room, and had a piping hot, delicious breakfast waiting the next morning in the main house. In person she was very personable without hovering during the meal, leaving us our own time to talk. We had a delightful stay. The room was the Loft, a completely separate suite over the detached garage, but with a walk-in entrance. Some guests may want to know there is an outdoor staircase to get to the Loft entrance from the parking area. We loved the large and spacious room, the huge two-person jacuzzi, the big bed and the gas fireplace. We couldn't get the whirlpool jets working, but that was just a minor issue in an otherwise beautiful stay. We left a bit later than checkout time but Kelly was gracious and didn't make any issue of it. We left with smiles. Would definitely consider staying again!

Fun trip to Skyville!

My stay at the Inn at Norwood was excellent. Kelly & Steve were very accommodating and personable. The location of the Inn is very convenient to Sykesville and the surrounding area. A lot of thought was put into making the customer feel at home.The inn was very clean and comfortable and the breakfast was very good. Sonny Diggs
