Our bright, freshly redecorated basement suite is the cozy home away from home perfect for your next trip!

The space

When you stay here, this bright, cozy basement suite is ALL yours. There is a bedroom with a queen bed and two more guests can be accommodated by either the couches or our pillowtop air mattress. In the living area, the TV has a Roku for accessing Netflix or other streaming apps. And feel free to curl up under a blanket with a book or play one of the board games in the cupboard. In the kitchenette you will find a microwave, mini-fridge, and coffee station. We have stocked it with water and breakfast/snacks for you to enjoy, too!

Guest access

Guests can access the basement and the patio outside the basement doors.

Interaction with guests

You decide! We would love to have a chat and get to know you over coffee, tea, or dinner if you would like. Otherwise, we can be like ships passing in the night, if you would prefer to keep your privacy.

Other things to note

We have a toddler and all the gear that goes with him, so if you are traveling with children, feel free to ask to borrow a pack-n-play, stroller, or a few toys. We are early risers, but we are quiet and also provide a white sound machine and ear plugs for light sleepers.
Frederick water is pretty hard and high in chlorine. I don't like that for my family or my guests, so we sediment and carbon filter all incoming water to remove any impurities and reduce chlorine, then we soften all incoming water with potassium (not sodium). Rest assured that all of your showers and drinking water will be clean, with no chemical additives or hard water deposits.

To address any possible allergies (and because dust mites are gross), we use zippered dust mite barrier pillow covers and mattress cover.

Sarah's space is very well appointed. Clean and enough room for 4 people. We enjoyed the munchies that were left out for us. Very short drive to downtown Frederick. All in all I would recommend highly.

The apartment was great, easy to find in a safe neighborhood, convenient parking, even a nice little view and good light despite being a lower level. Check-in was easy and Sara was super friendly and accommodating, even welcoming us a bit earlier than we expected. She made sure we had all we needed, and there were plenty of toiletry essentials plus snacks and coffee for the morning. We stayed for an afternoon and one night, and were super comfortable the whole time. Shower is nice and hot with good pressure, bed very comfortable (my wife is pregnant and she made sure we had extra pillows!), as are both couches where we curled up to watch Netflix on the Roku before bed. Everything was clean and accounted for, we would absolutely love to stay here again! Thanks Sara and family!

Sara's place was wonderful. It's spacious, clean, and pleasantly decorated. We were hoping to find a place where we could walk into town but driving and taking Uber was easy, quick and convenient. The bed wa sone of the most comfortable that I have slept in. We would stay here again when we return to the Frederick area.

Sara and Will were incredibly accommodating hosts. Everything listed is as advertised and more. The space is beyond clean, and the snacks and coffee they provided were much appreciated added touches. They even had some basic essentials in case you forgot your toothbrush, ibuprofen, etc. The sound machine and ear plugs they include also goes to show they truly want their guests to be as comfortable as possible (although we didn't mind the sound of their little one playing in the AM). Their place is about 3.5 miles from downtown Frederick and my wife and I easily made the bike ride despite a slightly busy highway that you need to navigate on foot for a small portion. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would return in a heartbeat! Thank you!

My husband Will and I moved to Frederick last summer. It is the perfect blend of small city Main Street culture close to nature and great hiking! We are a family of 4, with a teenager and a toddler it means never a dull moment. We love great food and friendly company. We have enjoyed using AirBnB for our travels and now are venturing into hosting.
