Unique Historic Contemporary Castle in Walking Distance to Park, River & Main St

Historically significant Castle Angelo or Angelo Cottage c. 1830!

This unique French inspired historic home has been the source of much mystery in Howard County and Ellicott City over the past twenty years. Having undergone extensive restoration, refinish and heartfelt improvement, Angelo presents itself as an amazing and masterful cottage-home blending both grandeur and intimacy throughout its three finished levels.

An impressive entry foyer with French Gothic-peaked entry doors and windows and wide-plank, Heart-pine flooring will set pace for an exciting tour through a sun-filled, center Gathering Room with Heart-pine Flooring and gorgeous French marble fireplace, into a quaint formal dining room with original Heart-pine flooring, beautiful Crystal Chandelier and French casement windows overlooking the wooded rear landscape and Patapsco River and a dramatic, main level library or family room with 12+” coiffured ceiling, antique Crystal Chandelier and original two-story window feature with handsome, built-in bookcases. Delight continues in a truly wonderful and gourmet kitchen highlighted by 42” cabinetry with crown caps, light rail and glass doors, granite counters with built-in breakfast bar, prep and coffee bar under-mount porcelain sink, Viking appliances including 42″ refrigerator with custom panels, Designer series gas cook-top and warming drawer and built-in microwave and oven, and a single-lite French door to a wonderful, covered side porch and slate patio-perfect for quiet evenings or special gatherings!

Select from one of four bedroom suites including main and upper level bedroom suites with Heart-pine hardwood flooring, partial walk-in closets with built-in California Closets shelving and hanging systems and beautifully refinished bathrooms with Heart-pine flooring and custom tile work and also a lower level bedroom suite with textured carpeting, partial walk-in closet, sitting room or den and full bath with ceramic tile flooring and 5’ walk-in shower – perfect to accommodate your need of privacy without compromising an intimate living environment!

Additional features, highlights and amenities include a detached two car garage with storage room and exterior person door; attractive stucco pillar and iron gated entry; brick drive with space for five+ cars; slate, flag and cobblestone retaining walls and pathways; lush landscaping beds and upper and lower garden areas; interior improvements including electrical and plumbing re-wires; new roofing; new French casement windows; dual zone heating; new central air-conditioning; absolutely gorgeous, gourmet kitchen, lovely garden bathrooms – all of the most wonderful of things wrapped in a small Chateau!

Lovely and unique venue

  • 5 of 5

The castle was a lovely spot. The gardens were inviting and provided lots of opportunities for us to relax and catch up with each other. The inside is equally beautiful- with all the amenities we needed. I will give you a "heads up" about access, however. The entry is located on a steep trail (actually, you have 3 choices) which requires good shoes and balance. The Inn owner was very willing to assist us in getting luggage up and down but we found a way to make it work on our own! It was a wonderful backdrop for a family sister birthday celebration!

The house/ castle was absolutely perfect for our gal friends getaway.

  • 5 of 5

Everything looked beautiful on our arrival and inside was immaculate. We really appreciated all the quality amenities and the kitchen was fully stocked with anything we could need. The patio was also lovely and inviting. All the beds and pillows were perfect as was the bedding and towels.The owner was wonderful to work with and we definitely hope to make a return visit as the entire 4 days was heavenly!!

Absolutely beathtaking and elegant yet comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 2 adult children and their boyfriend /girlfriend stayed for the weekend, there was plenty of room for all of us to either be together or have time alone. The property was truly wonderful, with views from each room of the home. The 3rd floor master suite makes you feel like you are sleeping perched above it all and extremely private. On Saturday evening it snowed and we woke up to a winter wonderland. Kimberly was attentive, without being intrusive addressing all our needs beginning with a quick tour of the house. The kitchen is equiped with high end appliances, making meals a plesure...we did not eat out at all!! Any question I had during the stayed Kimberely answered quickly, making us feel like her personal guests. The house is within walking distance of downtown, although there are parking lots through the town, I would advise walking if able to do so. I've stayed at a number if VRBO properites and this ranks as one of the best. We are already planning another trip during the summer months so we can enjoy the outdoors and grill.

Wonderful, charming and unique property.

  • 5 of 5

My family visited the area for Thanksgiving week, we were very pleased with our experience at the property because it served our family well. We had 5 adults in our group along with 3 kids (10, 2.5 and a newborn). We were able to have family from the area visit the home which was very important because much of my husband's relatives were in the area. Our family is unique because my husband and I have integrated his Gambian Dutch family with my American family. A good kitchen, plenty of sitting space and a nice setting is always a recipe for success! The Castle does not disappoint, we would rent again tomorrow.
