“Charming B & B”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

Scarborough Fair is a charming Bed and Breakfast in the heart of historic Federal Hill. The rooms are beautifully appointed, each named after a notable author. The bedding is very comfortable with the best sheets ever! (So comfortable, I ordered some for my master bedroom at home.) The dining room is attractive and welcoming. The breakfasts were plentiful and delicious. I especially enjoyed the Bread Pudding with its rich texture and wonderful fruits. Staff members were exceedingly gracious. Scarborough Fair's Federal Hill neighborhood is well worth exploring for its restaurants, bars, and shops. Finally, Scarborough Fair is walking distance from Baltimore's Inner Harbor where one can relax and enjoy the view or catch a water taxi to various attractions and neighborhoods. I highly recommend this B and B!

Room Tip: First floor room was important to me because I needed to avoid stairs. You might want to book early...

We thoroughly enjoyed our long weekend at Scarborough Fair. We went to Baltimore to see an Orioles game and the B&B was located only a few blocks from Camden Yards (but far enough away from the Inner Harbor to be a peaceful retreat). Our room (Hickory Vale) was clean, spacious and comfortable with an attached bathroom with whirlpool tub. The owners made every effort to graciously accommodate our needs and made great suggestions for dining in the local neighborhood. The price was competitive with the larger hotels (once you add in the gourmet breakfast and free parking, it was a great price). We definitely will return.

Back in the UK after another great trip to Baltimore including a stay at Scarborough Fair - a home from home in Federal Hill! Excellent location, delicious breakfasts - you won't need lunch - and comfy rooms. A warm welcome awaits and you'll find that nothing is too much trouble for innkeeper Barry and his friendly team.

I stayed at Scarborough Fair a couple of times while visiting Baltimore for work. I've stayed in a couple of different rooms, and they are very comfortable. Lots of nice touches, like warm fuzzy bathrobes, and high quality bathroom accoutrements. There is a well stocked little library and evenings were quiet and relaxing. Breakfast was fantastic, with fresh baked cookies as a bonus.
Highly recommended!

The Scarborough Fair is by far the best bed and breakfast experience i've found anywhere in the country. Barry is a fantastic host- he is always soo happy and knows all of the best hidden parts of the city. In the morning he cooks the best breakfasts! I go to bed dreaming of his coffee and pastries in the morning. Every time I have a question and i'm in Baltimore I know Barry will have an answer or knows someone who can help me. The rooms are always clean and well put together. The location is in the middle of Federal Hill so you are close to all the best parts of the city, but are still far enough removed from the stadiums that it is never that noisy late at night like other parts of the neighborhood.

I recommend to Scarborough Fair without hesitation to anyone staying in Baltimore.

I've been traveling to Baltimore for years and after staying at the usual chain hotel I had a friend recommend this B&B. I was skeptical as I usually prefer the cold privacy offered by a giant hotel, but decided to give it a shot. Needless to say I have been coming here ever since. Barry is amazing and cooks some of the best breakfast I've ever had. The rooms are insanely comfortable, and it's some of the best sleep I've had away from home. The location is another plus as there are a great selection of bars and restaurants a few blocks away. I will continue to stay at the Scarborough Fair.

You could really tell the extreme attention to detail that was paid throughout the entire property. They absolutely treat you exceptionally well and make you feel so much like family.

The B&B is in a wonderful location on a quiet road, just minutes away from tons of restaurants and bars

Room Tip: The breakfast was great.
