“Can't wait to go back!”
Reviewed 15 July 2013

We absolutely love this place. My wife and I went for a quick weekend getaway and we were amazed. The rooms are elegant and comfortable with large modern bathrooms. There is a mini-fridge and microwave with complimentary drinks and popcorn. There are comfy terry cloth robes in the bathroom and a large cable TV. The home is large and beautiful on magnificent grounds. You are surrounded by beautiful gardens and the sound of birds chirping in the trees. There is a large outdoor pool that is open 7am-11am, perfect for early morning swims and late night swimming.

But the service is what blows you away. Each night you are given a breakfast menu to fill out your options and leave on the door. You can indicate if you want a pot of coffee brought to your room prior to breakfast, and if you do, when you wake up there is a pot just sitting outside your door. Breakfast is served on the terrace, and each room is given a private table. Food is brought out in courses - tea/coffee, fruit, breakfast cake, and then the main meal. The food is amazingly delicious - fluffy pancakes, breakfast burritoes, etc. There are vegetarian and vegan options (veggie bacon, soy milk, etc).

I was a little worried about the distance to the city, but it is actually quite close. We made it into the Hampden neighborhood for dinner in less than 10 min.

This place is truly amazing and we will definitely be back.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Magnolia Room. It is the cheapest and smallest room. The room is small but large e...

My wife and I stayed at and were married at the Gramercy Mansion. The hotel, the grounds, and our room were beyond what words can describe. The closet word I can think of is perfect. The staff including Raina, Amanda, and William (who was our officiant), were a pleasure to be around. The breakfast each morning was great with a view of the garden that I wish I could still look at each morning. My wife and I were married in the gazebo, with the back drop of the valley and the trees. It was a perfect day for us. We are already making plans to spend our one year anniversary at the mansion. P.S. The electric fireplace in our room was a great.

The Gramercy Mansion is located in Lutherville right off of 695.
This B&B is perfect for romantic getaway and is great for weddings.
My wife and I first came to the Gramercy since it is located near the Cloisters, where we were married. We stayed the night before the wedding and for our honeymoon night.
The Gramercy gives the impression of being away but is located close to restaurants.
As you drive up to the mansion, you see the fields that supply the vegetables that are used at the B&B.
For those who are planning a wedding, you can have the wedding either in the main building or the Carriage house. Look for the preview days where you can sample different caterers and other wedding service providers.
Be aware that the parking was limited near the mansion.
The gardens around the grounds are serene.
The mansion itself is beautiful with hard wood and antiques.
The best part of staying here is that you can purchase items around the mansion.
We purchased the lamps that were in our room so we can always remember our honeymoon.
There are different rooms for different prices and tastes.
There is a pool and a patio (great for weddings).
The breakfast is very good and there are a number of things you can chose from ranging from eggs to pancakes.
Then there is the service which is outstanding. They are very helpful and friendly. Don't forget the cat who walks the halls.
Since our honeymoon we have stayed here for our anniversary and intend on return each year.
This is a phenomenal place to go if you want to get away in the Baltimore area.

Room Tip: Book early if you are planning a getaway as there are a lot of weddings here. Go online, review t...

Thank you so much for taking the time to review us! We sincerely appreciate your kind words and are very glad that you returned to visit us for your anniversary this year. We look forward to welcoming you back for many years to come!

We do host many weddings on weekends during the summer months, but if you're ever able to get away mid-week we offer a Sizzling Summer Savings special and Room of the Month with a discounted rate - visit our website for details. It does tend to be much quieter mid-week and guests are able to stroll the grounds and truly enjoy the tranquility of the property.

Thank you again for taking the time to share your experience!

My husband and I just got married at Gamercy Mansion. It was such a gorgeous venue, and after spending the weekend there we didn't want to leave. The bed and sheets were so comfortable. We couldn't wait to have breakfast, as it was a delicious feast with all of our favorite foods. A gentleman by the name of Bill was such a pleasure and was very welcoming. He was our officiant, and led a beautiful ceremony in the garden. My only suggestions are that they should have better lighting and a full length mirror in the rooms. My husband and I definitely want to go back for anniversaries.

Congratulations on your recent wedding and thank you so much for celebrating with us! Thank you for sharing your experience, as well. We sincerely appreciate your comments and are so glad you enjoyed both the bed & the breakfast during your stay - two of our top priorities!

We will certainly take a look at the lighting in all of the guest rooms and the mirrors. Some rooms do have full length mirrors and seem to brighter than others. We definitely understand how important that is, especially on a wedding day. Thank you for bringing it to our attention.

Best wishes to you both! We hope to see you again soon!

We felt like family and royalty at the same time. The rooms are beautiful and comfortable at the same time. The staff is outstanding and breakfast was top notch. The grounds are beautiful for walking and the gardeners do an amzing job. My neice was getting married there and the wedding spot was perfect.

Room Tip: They do not have a fitness center but the review seemed to force me to answer.

you won't be disappointed! This lavish estate welcomes you into an oasis of nature, Victorian splendor, such gracious staff and owners--so desirious to help at every moment. We arrived for a stay in the Blue Garden Suite to find a 3 room suite with definite individual charm in each room, but theview from the bedroom a complete panoramic view 8 large windows overloooking trees filled with all species of singing birds, a view of lush gardens below, overlooking the pool. Ann,Bill,and Heather were so gracious and kind. We were so fortunate to stay during their room of the month special! Bill esorted us out for a stupendous scrumptious breakfast-DELICIOUS AND SO FRESH--through a formal didning area outside w/a garden/pool view cooled by overhead fans and white twinkle lights. We then ventured off on a few trails decorated throughout w/benches, gazebos, exotic plants, and teeny scampering chipmunks glimpsed before they disappeared into the mulch. The mansion itself was so romantic and the chandeliers/paintings/ and exotic wood furnishings were a welcome addition of variety to the beauty of the valley and gardens enveloping the property. I tell you the truth when I relate that this is an "EXPERIENCE", not just a boring hotel room. If you love the variety of luxurious accomodations and stepping into tranquil beauty of nature-incredible trees and romantic walks with well placed benches to rest, cuddle, and have those special talks and moments--you can experience all of this and more quite naturally and comfortably HERE!!! Can't wait to return. In fact,am taking a friend with a large family that visits from out of town to see the property for her incoming visitors to enjoy this week. not a room--AN EXPERIENCE!

I put tea in quotation marks because what we wetr served was as far from a tea as you can get. The menu was a motley mix of fruit, mozarella and tomato skewer (???) a tiny croissant and devilef egg (again - ???). Then came sloppily cut overstuffed shrimp salad, chicken salad, and fried green tomato blt sandwiches. The shrimp salad had chunks of shrimp falling out everywhere, i cluding into my lap, ruimimg a new skirt. Dessert was a grainy (warm) cheesecake with a tartlike gel and fruit topping and the ubiquitous chocolate covered strawberry. I was hungry so ate what I could but all very unappetizing and super weird assortment. No scones or jam or cucumber sandwiched. I hate it when people try to get fancy with afternoon tea. It never works. They also kept filling the teacup halfway so three or four sips and then you had to wait for them to come around again.

The tour was all about selling us the place as somewhere to rent or stay. The woman giving the tour was nice but knew practically nothing.

We also had to wait 20 minutes to start the tour because a group came in very late and took their time eating. They should have been told the tour would go on and they could finish in time to go or just go on the garden tour.

This whole thing was ridiculously priced $44 per person with tax and "service" charge. Reynolds Tavern in Annapolis is still the best tea in the state. And only $16! Will never go to a tea here again.

Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts and opinion of our Fragrance of Summer Tea & Tour. We appreciate all feedback as it allows us to continuously improve special events at Gramercy.

We continue to work with our partner caterer to customize and improve the tea menu seasonally and based on comments from our guests. The menu is posted along with all of the reservation information in the e-mail blast sent to our mailing list as well as on any fliers and online event listings publicizing the event. We apologize that you were dissatisfied with the meal. Many of our previous guests have enjoyed both the quality of the food and the attentiveness of the service.

Pricing is a bit higher than restaurants or hotels because we do contract a caterer to provide the meal. Our staff then serves it as well as the served hot tea. Guided tours of the Mansion and gardens are also included during the 3 hour event.

As far as the tours, our innkeepers are thoroughly knowledgeable of the history of the Mansion and what is blooming in the gardens. Once again, we have received numerous compliments regarding this portion of the event. After viewing the Mansion's first floor public rooms, groups are escorted through the bed & breakfast rooms. We do not do this to sell the B&B or venue to our guests, but rather because the majority of the Mansion is comprised of overnight guest rooms and most visitors are interested in seeing the unique rooms and suites.

Thank you again for your time. We will take your comments into consideration when planning future teas.
