Welcome to my private studio apartment with a separate entrance and private bath. There is a mini fridge, microwave, toaster oven, coffee pot, tea, sugar, half and half. Bottled filtered water. Recently renovated bathroom, fresh towels, wash cloths and soap, shampoo and conditioner, sheets and bedspread. Iron and ironing board.

The space
My apartment is decorated in the minimalist style--full-sized bed with linens and breadspread, bedside tables and lamps, plenty of counter space for eating and preparing food. Mini fridge, toaster oven and microwave. Snacks, coffee, tea, bottled water, filtered water for coffee. The bathroom has a large shower, new vanity and toilet, recessed lighting, mid-century flooring and tiles, newly painted--a fun and eclectic style.

Guest access
On some occasions you will need to access my place using the lock box. Of course I will let you know when that is necessary.

Open the weather proof cover.
Push the button labeled C down to clear the previous code.
Enter the code.
Push the button with the arrow down and the key pad will open.
You will find the key there.
Just snap the key pad back into place, as well as the weather proof cover.

I will leave an extra key on the counter for your convenience if you don't want to use the lock box every time.

You are welcome to share my deck, which overlooks the back of the property. A lovely place to have morning coffee or a glass of wine in the evening, read a book, enjoy the country air and the beautiful surroundings.

Please use the driveway to the right of the main driveway and park on the street side of the brick barbecue, which will be on your left. Go around the deck to the basement steps. It is well-lit if you arrive at night or return from an activity when it's dark.

Other things to note
There are many fine wineries in the area, in beautiful rural settings, where you can do a tasting or just enjoy a glass or two of local Maryland wine.

Hello! My name is Camilla. I am originally from Washington DC but have lived all over the world—Spain, England, France, Germany, Okinawa, San Francisco, Seattle—to name a few. I have retired from my job as a Proposal Developer with a nationwide medical staffing company. I earned my BFA at Goddard College at the age of 62--a life-long goal, finally achieved. I have two children—a son who lives in Houston with his wife and baby daughter, and a daughter who has just become a physician and will be moving to Louisville, Kentucky, to begin her internship with her husband, an IT professional. I am an avid reader and belong to two book clubs. I am slowly beginning to enjoy gardening. I go to an exercise class for old ladies like me, and a yoga class. Absolutely love music of all kinds, especially blues, rock and Latino. Twenty-eight years ago we moved to Howard County to raise our family, and we never left. The countryside is beautiful, peaceful and quiet. As you can see from my photos, the view from my front door is truly rural Maryland at its best. Sykesville was just named The Coolest Small Town in America. It is also one of the safest. The businesses are independently owned. There are four unique clothing stores, a great book store, and an excellent hair salon. There are five small restaurants, including a creperie, a sports bar, a higher-end eatery which is a converted train station, a wine bar, and a deli. We have a farmer’s market every Sunday morning, just off Main Street. It is a wonderful place to live. I would love to have you stay with me and experience Sykesville, as I do every day. Welcome!
