Great Place

4.6 on January 04, 2018

One of the best B&Bs I have ever been to over the last 30 years. You're very much on your own, but they have everything you need. Four nights, most comfortable.

Excellent accommodations!

Excellent rooms with a wonderful jacuzzi tub and gas fireplace! The breakfast included very tasty cinnamon muffins, but not much else.

Lovely little getaway

My wife and I enjoyed the cozy, small town feel of the Inn at Norwood and its environs. There were no meals on site, only beverages and snacks, but there are several places to eat just a couple blocks away, and we were informed of this when we reserved. Our 2nd floor room was cool, but had a gas fireplace, which compensated. Room was tidied up during the day, which we appreciated. My wife loved the decor. The Inn is centrally located in a small town, so we left the car parked and just walked around town for two days.

Clean, comfortable, historic

3.6 on July 26, 2017

We've stayed here from time to time over the past several years and always found the rooms clean, comfortable and, in their historic detail, charming. The B&B is a short walk to the equally charming Main street of Sykesville. The only downside to a stay is that the full breakfast has been eliminated.

No breakfast on weekdays. Wonderful setting! The bed was fine, just softer than our preference. Steve & Kelly were available, but not intrusive.

Wedding Night Stay

We loved the romantic "winter" room at the Inn at Norwood. The 4 poster bed with a crocheted canopy was very romantic and comfortable. We enjoyed the 2 person Jacuzzi tub as well. Sunday breakfast was incredible. Kelly and Steve were great hosts. We will be back for our anniversary!

A Wonderful stay in charming Sykesville

We were in Sykesville area visiting my daughter an had the good fortune to get a room at the Inn at Norwood. We had a great stay in a quaint period room with a comfortable bed and plenty of modern amenities. Sunday breakfast was the perfect touch. It was a great 3 days in a charming small town with many intriguing shops.

The Inn at Norwood is a breath of fresh air. It is quite, clean and everything we needed to relax and unwind. We spent a lot of time on the spacious front porch rocking and relaxing. It was very quiet and the owners were available when we needed information. We will definitely revisit the inn next time we are in the area.

Had To Cancel

I have stayed at Norwood Inn several times in the past, always on business. Unfortunately, this trip had to be cancelled at the last minute. I still recommend your Inn to others and will continue to do so in the future. I look forward to staying at your Inn in the Fall. FYI, since I always leave too early and receive the business rate, I never eat at the Inn. Larry Groseclose

Lovely, Quiet Inn

3.8 on May 02, 2017

I spent one night there because I had business at a local restoration shop. The Inn was beautiful, quiet and fairly easy to find. The "main street" in town was fun & interesting to visit. The room was very clean, comfortable and wonderfully decorated. In all a totally delightful place to stay.
