A two night stay is enjoyed by many but you may prefer additional days to take in the sites that Frederick has to offer. Let us be your home base as you shop, dine and discover historic downtown Frederick including wineries, orchards, Revolutionary and Civil war heritage sites, Farmer's Markets and many museums. Downtown Frederick also boasts a host of nightlife activities for those who enjoy going out after dark. It is our pleasure to make dinner reservations, suggest shops and sites in the area or assist in any way to ensure a wonderful visit.

Things to do in the Frederick Area

Nestled in the rolling foothills of the Blue Ridge and Catoctin Mountains you will be less than one hour from Washington, DC and Baltimore, Maryland and minutes from Gettysburg, Antietam and Harper's Ferry. A trip to the big city isn’t necessary for history buffs. Tour the National Museum of Civil War Medicine or the Revolutionary Hessian Barracks, or the grounds of Monocacy National Battlefield. Travel to nearby Antietam, Gettysburg, Harper’s Ferry, or South Mountain Battlefield.

If nature is more your pleasure, hike or bike the trails of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Catoctin Mountain Park or the C&O Canal or take in the waterfalls at Cunningham Falls State Park. A tour of downtown Frederick’s historic architecture, public arts, the Community Bridge and murals makes a great day trip. Frederick has been named one of “America’s Dozen Distinctive Destinations:,” “Great Places in America,” and a “Preserve America” community.

Performing Arts & Music

The city of Frederick is a recognized Maryland Arts and Entertainment District. Take in a play, concert or dance performance at the Weinberg Center for the Arts. Across the street you’ll find a more intimate experience at the Maryland Ensemble Theater featuring a main stage series of original and contemporary plays, comedies improve troupes, and a family theater series. If a dinner theater is more to your liking visit the Way-Off Broadway Dinner Theater.

Lovers of live music will want to visit downtown Frederick after 9 pm on weekends. Shoppers will love boutiques, specialty shops and antique emporiums in downtown Frederick. It’s a short drive to one of the nearby antique meccas, such as New Market, Mt Airy, Middletown, Emmitsburg and Thurmont. Sample Frederick’s nationally acclaimed wines at wine festivals held throughout the year.

Summers in Frederick are magical with wonderful arts events. The Frederick Festival of the Arts features more than 100 artists and dozens of musical offerings. Frederick also boasts a great Summer Concert Series which launches its annual season of weekly Sunday night concerts in beautiful Baker Park. On Thursday mornings in late June, July and August, Summerfest Family Theater features professionally produced children’s entertainment there as well. On Thursday nights the Carroll Creek Amphitheater heats up with the sounds of live music during Alive @ Five for those over 21.

Visual Arts

Frederick offers fine arts venues such as the Delaplaine Visual Arts Education Center featuring diverse art exhibits in an exciting location. Equally engaging are the many privately-owned galleries and shops specializing in original paintings, pottery, jewelry and artistically executed home accessories. The city landscape provides dozens of public art projects where you will find more than 30 murals and sculptures.


If baseball is your favorite pass-time, take in an evening at the Frederick Keys Stadium. The Class A Minor League farm team of the Baltimore Orioles offers fireworks, kids’ activities and a family friendly environment. Enjoy some of Frederick’s top golf courses including Musket Ridge, Maryland National, Whiskey Creek, Links of Gettysburg, Clustered Spires, P.B. Dye, Worthington Manor, Challedon, and many more.


Visit the National Shrine of Elizabeth Ann Seton, the first American born canonized saint. A peaceful mountaintop pilgrimage to the National Shrine Grotto of Lourdes, the oldest replica of the Grotto of Lourdes in the western hemisphere is only 30 minutes away.

Specialty Shopping

We are close to the historic downtown shopping district where you will find retail entrepreneurs offering hand selected merchandise. One Hundred stores are located on Market, Patrick and East streets specializing in a diverse array of goods including: clothing, gifts, outdoor gear, toys, jewelry, chocolate, skateboards, furniture, fine home accessories, fresh cut flowers, hosiery, stationery, imports and more. Nationally-recognized stores are located in malls, shopping centers, and nearby outlets such as the Hagerstown and Leesburg Prime Outlets.

Culinary Delights

For those desiring a memorable dining experience Frederick County has all the right ingredients. Savor fresh local foods prepared by critically-acclaimed chefs like Bryan Voltaggio (Volts, Family Meal). Diners can expect Maryland and Chesapeake-style fare, dishes prepared with local ingredients, urban-chic restaurants with sophisticated entrees and ambiance and authentic international cooking from all corners of the globe. Downtown Frederick is a showcase of the culinary arts where 30 dining establishments stand ready to please your palate. Many are close to major attractions. Local restaurants also host daily happy hours and many beer or wine dinners, featuring local wine and craft beers. Live music and open mic nights also contribute to a lively nightlife.

Outdoor Activities

Northern Frederick County is home to Catoctin Mountain National Park, Cunningham Falls State Park and Gambrill State Park. Each offers exciting outdoor experiences and breathtaking scenery. You can enjoy wildlife, wildflowers, historic buildings, hiking trails, scenic drives, tent and cabin camping, boating, swimming, fly-fishing and cross country skiing.

Park experiences available in western Frederick County combine natural beauty with history. At Gathland State Park you’ll see the War Correspondents Memorial Arch and learn about the life of George Alfred Townsend a Civil War correspondent whose estate was once located on the site. The Appalachian Trail traverses Gathland as well as Washington Monument state Park, the first national tribute to the father of Our Country. The C&O Canal provides hiking and biking and also offers insight into transportation and trade in the 1800s. Nearby, the majestic Potomac River offers scenic beauty as well as thrilling whitewater rafting experiences.

Enjoy the agriculture experience at one of the many orchards, farms, vineyards or farmer’s markets. Pick your own fruits or vegetables or try a creamery treat from the farm. In fall, try one of several corn mazes, harvest festivals and uniquely charming events that Frederick County has to offer.

Covered Bridges

Frederick County has three of only eight remaining covered bridges in Maryland; they are all still in use and worth the trip.


1) Baltimore (45 minutes), Washington (45 minutes), Gettysburg (30 minutes)

2) Check In: 3:00 p.m. Check out: 11:00 a.m.

3) NO SMOKING please

This is my first experience with HomeAway and I must say I was blown away. We had an amazing time at the Grove Guest House. The description could not have matched the house better. The GPS found it perfectly which was nice. Before we even got there, Deb had been communicating with me every detail we would need to know down to where the lights were located and what was near us for entertainment. When we got there, there was wine, cheese, crackers, orange juice, coffee, tea, bagels, cream cheese, cinnamon buns, etc. I could not believe how amazing this was already and it just got better. The house is decorated beautifully. There were 4 good size bedrooms and a fully furnished kitchen. The property is just absolutely breath taking. The pool and hot tub were just the cherry on top. There was full tv and movies, wifi, and plenty of parking. I really don't have anything bad to say. She stocked the bathroom with shampoo and conditioner. Laundry soap, dish soap, hand soap, towels, pillows, linens were all included. There were games in the library. Deb was absolutely so kind. When we went in the hot tub the first night she came out and put music on for us. She gave us suggestions for food when we asked.

I wish we were able to spend more time there. We will definitely be back when we visit D.C.! Thank you Deb!!

Great place to stay, friendly host, amazing house

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for the weekend I was getting married in Frederick. The guest house has plenty of room and all the amenities you could ask for. There was fresh fruit and other small groceries waiting for us when we arrived which was very nice. The pool is great!! Couldn't have asked for anything more. I will definitely come back for my anniversary. Thank you Deb!!

Absolutely amazing!

  • 5 of 5

I have traveled a lot and stayed in many vacation rentals and have never really written a review. However after staying at this property I felt like I had to. The property looks even better than the pictures. Both the guesthouse and the grounds are beautiful, clean and well kept. Deb was amazing and extremely helpful with anything we needed during our stay. My kids loved the pool and even went night swimming. The colored lights in the pool at night were a big hit.

I would highly recommend this property.

A Treat of a Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! This event was a reunion for my parents' grandchildren. We enjoyed the pool, the fireflies, and playing football on the lawn. The kitchen was easy to use and easy to clean. We played lots of card games, used the TV for a slideshow of my nephew's trip to Japan, and played ball. The location was perfect for a daytrip to Harper's Ferry. The hostess is kind, friendly, and generous! Everything was perfect!
