Fodor's Expert Review Gramercy Mansion

1400 Greenspring Valley Rd., Baltimore, Maryland, 21153, United States

Just 15 minutes from downtown Baltimore is this intimate B&B in the 1902 home of Alexander J. Cassatt, owner of the Pennsylvania Railroad and brother of the American Impressionist painter Mary Cassatt. Staying in one of the 11 rooms here is like being a guest at Cassatt's country estate. Rooms are done in a range of styles, from Edwardian to Victorian, French, and 19th-century American. Wake up to a full breakfast of French toast, blueberry pancakes, and the house omelet (mushrooms, tomatoes, onions, and fresh herbs from the garden). Be sure to book in advance: it's a popular spot for weddings.
