This is a large, oval bedroom with en suite full bath in a luxury home in a beautifully landscaped setting. The property has a heated pool, hot tub and tennis court. The couple's home was designed and decorated by a noted architect and interior designer. Set on 6 landscaped acres, this retreat is more like a country club. The bedroom has a separate entrance. Morning light floods the bedroom if desired. A continental breakfast is included. The pool and hot tub are open from Memorial to Labor Day.
There is a large circular driveway and a grand, contemporary main entrance. There is also a tennis court on the property and we border a 126 acre farm yet are only a mile from major interstate thoroughfare York Rd. and highway I-83. We are two miles from the Warren Rd. Light Rail station. The Light Rail comes from the airport, goes through the football and baseball stadiums, downtown Baltimore, Penn (train) Station and goes all the way to Hunt Valley (Cockeysville).
Access to the house - The separate private entrance for the guests requires the ability to navigate outdoor staircases so guests must be sufficiently mobile to be able to go up and down concrete steps without assistance. The house is built on a hillside so one enters the house through the main (West) entrance which appears to be on the first floor but in fact, when entering the house from the east entrance, is the second floor. The oval guest room, which is not wheelchair accessible, is on the first floor. Virtually all the furniture in the room was custom made by a local cabinetmaker to be built-in to the round walls at either end of the oval room.
Guests have access to the living room, formal dining room, gallery, den, powder room, and solarium with treadmill. There are beautiful views through most of the home's 175 windows. A continental breakfast - a nice spread with cloth napkins and silver service - consisting of juice, fresh fruit, coffee or tea, croissants, muffins and/or bagels, is included in the price of the room.
Interaction with guests
Dr. Ken has a home office in the house and so is present daily. He is friendly and helpful and can suggest places to go and things to do in the area if needed.
Other things to note
Cockeysville and Hunt Valley are one and the same with the same zip code.
Bring your tennis racquets or borrow ours! Swimsuits are optional as the setting is totally private. Guests assume all risk and responsibility for use of the pool and hot tub and must acknowledge that there is no lifeguard, indemnify the hosts and agree to hold the hosts harmless in case of accident (must sign waiver to swim). We keep the pool and hot tub open Memorial Day until Labor Day.
Only paid guests who have registered are allowed on the property. Guests may not host their guests on our property.
Guests are expected to behave as do hosts; with customary respect, consideration and good manners.
