A Wonderful stay in charming Sykesville

4.8 on June 12, 2017

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.

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.

Second Time Staying Here -- Loved It!

4.6 on April 30, 2017

I have stayed at this B&B once before and it did not disappoint the second time around. The house is beautiful and ideally located just a block off the main street in Sykesville. The rooms are spacious and the bathroom is renovated with all modern amenities. The bed is very comfortable and I had a very quiet and peaceful night's rest for the three nights I stayed there. In the morning, I just had coffee. Since I was a single traveler staying during the week, breakfast was not served. But that was not a big deal since there was a frig in the room and I put food in there. Also, it is a very affordable place to stay. I would highly recommend this B&B if you are staying in the Sykesville area.

simple but extremely nice and enjoyable

quaint and very simple. breakfast a little light and I don't prefer chocolate cake for breakfast. Also light on the toiletries provided in the room (1 bar of soap, 1 small shampoo, that's all) But a wonderful evening and the staff was fantastic! would definitely go again

2nd time staying

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!

INN AT NORWOOD - still fun but the breakfast has all but disappeared

3.0 on February 16, 2017

INN AT NORWOOD - still fun but the breakfast has all but disappeared We have always enjoyed our stays at the Inn at Norwood in Sykesville, MD and the proprietors Kelly & Steve Crum have always accommodated our needs. We wanted to celebrate our 25th anniversary as a couple there, but our favorite room THE LOFT was not available so we chose THE WINTER ROOM in the main house. This room doesnt have as much privacy nor a King size bed, but the jacuzzi was great. The proprietors revised their policy and now only serve breakfast on Sunday mornings. Even though they offer a reduced price and breakfast is a minor reason for our stay, it is part of a bed and breakfast experience and it does give you an opportunity to bond with the proprietors. Sykesville is a fun little town with varied retail and dining options. If you stay at Norwood on a non-breakfast day, we highly recommend THE FRENCH TWIST as a great breakfast alternative.

Wonderful stay

We had a wonderful stay here. The owners are very nice, warm, and welcoming. The room was beautiful, well appointed, and clean. Homemade cookies and coffee were left out for guests, which was a wonderful personal touch. Breakfast was also homemade, a delicious theee course meal. The inn was very quiet and relaxing. We felt like honored guests in these wonderful people's home. We will be back. Thank you.

Great little place!
