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.

Sports

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.

Landmarks

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.

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.

Owner's Response: We enjoyed welcoming our guest to the Grove guest house. He booked the home very close to his check in date so we didn't have time to truly pamper him the way we normally do. He was quiet and very respectful of our home...a delight to have. He would be welcomed anytime. He was a gentleman in every sense of the word!

Beautiful house, convenient to many local attractions

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay at The Grove guest house. The house itself was beautiful, and had all the necessary amenities. It was also very convenient to downtown Frederick, Harpers' Ferry and Antietam, all of which we enjoyed visiting. Would definitely recommend it to others!

THIS IS IT!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our Cuzin's trip was great this year. We stayed at the Grove and couldn't have asked for better accommodations, amenities or hospitality. Deb, the owner stayed in the house in front and we were at the "quest" house though I would say that our quarters were not meager. One more day and another bathroom would have made this feel like paradise. Thanks to the internet, we had pre-planned our entire 4 day stay. I would recommend this to a group of friends who wanted to get away and have some group fun. The pictures were true to real life. I would certainly return should the need arise.

Beautiful Guest House and Property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Grove guest house for our youngest son's graduation from Mount St. Mary's and it was absolutely perfect! My husband and I flew in from Chicago, our older son from Portland OR, and our daughter from SC. After getting stuck in DC traffic on the way to the house, we were a tired, slightly grumpy family. Then we stepped inside the Grove house and immediately felt so much better. This home is incredible! Better than a luxury hotel - Deb really has an eye for detail and made sure that everything you could possibly need is ready and waiting.

We were welcomed with a beautiful arrangement of fruit, cheese and wine, plus danish, bagels, juice and more in the refrigerator. Also, the coffee selection was great and we used the Keurig often. Bathroom had lots of towels, soap, shampoo, etc., and more importantly, lots of hot water! The TV in the living room is huge and has every channel imaginable. The furniture is very comfortable and we enjoyed watching movies and reconnecting as a family in the evening.

As others have commented, the bedrooms are beautiful and really comfortable, with high-end linens and soft pillows (or medium or firm pillows if that's your preference). You really won't want to get out of bed in the morning. The upstairs bedroom was a real bonus, the kids could stay up late watching TV and we could relax and read - and more importantly sleep! - without being disturbed. Two of the beds are rather tall and we did have a chuckle watching our daughter (5' 2") climb in.

We also enjoyed the property - beautifully landscaped and peaceful. Perfect to sit outside or wander around with a cup of coffee in the morning. It was rainy and cool when we were there so we didn't use the pool or jacuzzi, but we did relax in the very comfortable lounge chairs poolside.

Finally, the location is great. Easy access to the expressway to get to Emmitsburg/Gettysburg and only minutes to downtown Frederick. Also, the drive back to DCA was a breeze.

Deb is a great hostess and we highly recommend her property. We enjoyed it so much, we didn't want to leave. Glad our son is attending grad school in the area so we can stay here again. See you soon Deb!

Owner's Response: We were so lucky to meet such wonderful people staying at the Grove guest house. Our guests were perfect in every way! They took care of our home like it was their own. It was just as clean as the day they first walked in. We so enjoyed getting to know them. I hope they plan on returning soon! They are welcomed anytime!

Pleasant surprise!

  • 5 of 5

Impressive drive up the tree lined driveway, beautiful mansion, pool , and then the very private "Grove". When I walked in and saw the 72 inch TV on the wall I was pumped!

Very well appointed with all the newest comforts of a luxurious home. At one point this was an business office and has been converted into a comfortable living space. It was very nice to have breakfast foods, fruit, coffee, and wine all complimentary. I would definitely stay again if I was coming back to the area.
