About

Gramercy, a majestic Tudor style mansion and estate, situated on 45 acres in Maryland's Greenspring Valley, provides elegant hospitality.

The breakfast was AWESOME!

5 on March 04, 2017

I truly enjoyed my stay at the mansion. It was convenient to where I needed to go and was quiet and pleasant in the evenings. I particularly enjoyed the breakfast and the friendly service! Would invariably stay again!


Back Again

4.8 on January 18, 2017

We found The Mansion about three years ago and have stayed on four separate visits (3 different rooms). We always look forward to each stay and have never been disappointed. The service is truly outstanding and the breakfast all you could ask for. Each visit always includes browsing and invariably we return home with a memento of our stay. Already looking forward to our next visit.


Awesome Experience

This is our second time staying in the Ambassador Room at the Gramercy. The fireplace makes the room so warm and cozy. Staff is very friendly and quite helpful. Breakfast is one of the best we have ever had at a B&B. They offer you so many delicious choices. Look forward to future stays at this lovely B&B.


A gem in the Baltimore suburbs!

Spent two wonderful nights at Gramercy Mansion over Thanksgiving. The bedroom was romantic and comfortable, the service was outstanding, the breakfasts were complete and delicious, and a stroll on the grounds was beautiful. I also loved shopping among the antiques and vintage objects on display on the 2nd and 3rd floors. Came home with a gorgeous gilded mirror! We will definitely be back.


It's where I stay in Baltimore

3.8 on November 19, 2016

I've been up to Baltimore about 6 times in the last year and a half; been there just one night each time. On a whim, based on convenience and the impression I got from their website, I picked Gramercy Mansion B & B the first time. And it's been my choice every time since. If I had the time, I could detail the ways in which it's good but not amazing, and the ways i which it's just plain outstanding -- the gardens, the mansion, the atmosphere, and the service, for starters. But I need to keep this short. Basically, it's where I choose to go because I feel like amongst old family friends, a welcome guest in their warm, elegant, charming home. If I want nothing but privacy, they understand, and let me rest peacefully, but they still manage to make me feel welcome. And when I do want something, or just want to hang out, everyone I've dealt with has been warm and welcoming. The breakfasts are great, the rooms have personality. A regular hotel would be incredibly impersonal by comparison, and only the priciest hotels would feel like the designing, upkeep, and cleaning of the room had been attended to by quality-conscious human beings.


Perfectly Restful

4.6 on November 14, 2016

I went to Gramercy for a weekend of relaxation after a particularly fraught time. Everyone there contributed to making my weekend as easy and restful as possible. I bought a couple of things from their gift shop, and they went out of their way to make certain the heavier items were mailed to me. The breakfasts were outstanding; the gardens were beautiful. I slept well and feel very refreshed upon getting back to my regularly scheduled life. I can't recommend them highly enough.


Great experience

Had a wonderful time here. This was a last minute reservation, and I had no idea what to expect. The Bar Harbor Room was delightful, beautifully decorated (especially liked the bath), and very clean. The staff was friendly but not intrusive, and the breakfast was excellent. Especially loved walking over the grounds!


Peak Leaf Time

5 on November 03, 2016

This is my second stay with Gramercy, First time was a last minute reservation in August two years ago. This time was to enjoy peak leaf time. Very friendly staff, food is awesome & plenty of it. Love the fresh pot of coffee by your door in the A.M. I 'm a cat owner and love them too and the resident cat is very friendly.


Beautiful wedding and stay at the Gramercy

5 on October 10, 2016

We had our wedding at this B&B and reserved 3 rooms. The service staff was outstanding and very accommodating. Our rooms were stunning and very clean. The charm of the Mansion and each room's decor was a lovely backdrop for our wedding pictures. Our only regret was with all the activities of the weekend, we didn't have a chance to use the huge whirlpool bathtub in our room. The gardens were delicately manicured, quiet, and lovely for a morning or afternoon stroll. We had fresh flowers in our room during the stay, which was a lovely touch. The staff brought us coffee to our rooms to help us wake up before making our way to the atrium for breakfast an hour later. The coffee was delicious too (and I'm picky). The breakfast choices were very diverse and accommodated every palate. Not to mention, the breakfast was delicious and served beautiful place settings. There was always attention to the details, which made it very special. We'd highly recommend this venue if you are looking for a relaxing, quiet, and romantic getaway from everyday life. We'll certainly go back many times in the future.


Most relaxing and beautiful stay at a B&B

4.8 on October 08, 2016

I stayed three nights on business, and it was an exceedingly welcoming moment each time I left the hectic traffic of the Baltimore/DC area and drove up the winding driveway to this elegant B&B. The breakfasts are delicious and elegantly served; the staff is friendly and very helpful, and the rooms are a delight! I highly recommend this as THE place to stay near Baltimore.
