Ellicott City, MD is part of the greater Baltimore metropolitan area, but it has its own distinctive character. There is a downtown historic center and at its heart is Main Street which is where the oldest town structures are located. The charm of Main Street is what landed Ellicott City, in 2009, on the “Top 25 Most Uniquely American Cities and Towns”. The city has also been ranked four times since 2005 by Money Magazine and CNNMoney.com among the top “20 Best Places to Live in the United States”. Ellicott City also has another claim to fame. It has been called “one of the most haunted small towns on the East Coast”. If you’re interested in paranormal activity, the Howard County Tourism Council has a Ghost Tour that visits several sites including the historic mansions of Lilburn, Hayden House, and Mt. Ida and locations such as the B&O railroad bridge that crosses Main Street and the old Ellicott City Firehouse. If you’re interested in finding out just what makes Ellicott City a unique and wonderful place to live, come visit and stay in one of these Airbnb vacation rentals. You don’t have to worry, they’re not on the Ghost Tour.
This charming cottage has retained its character and sense of history. It was originally a blacksmith shop built in 1855 but has been converted to a lovely 1100-square foot (102-square meter) detached cottage featuring open, hand-axed beams, stone walls and decorated in a rustic style. The cottage is essentially three rooms: an eat-in kitchen, a ladder-accessible loft with queen bed above the kitchen, and a large great room. The large great room TV/lounge area has a sectional couch, leather chair, wood stove, two queen beds, and even a ping-pong table. There is one full bathroom with a shower. In the rear of the cottage is a private, covered porch and another in front which is less private, but a nice spot to greet the morning sun.
