The home has 2 flights of original winding wooden staircases. We encourage guests to hold onto the rope handrail and exercise caution, particularly at night. We do not recommend this home to those with mobility issues. It is probably also worth noting that the bathroom is on the main level and the two bedrooms are on the 2nd floor of this historic home.
There is a separate basement apartment called "The Cocoon" with a private entrance. The Cocoon is also available on Airbnb if you'd be interested in reserving it as well. (you can find it by going to our profile and looking at all of our "Belong Here" listings) We ask that our guests be respectful of others by keeping noise levels down, especially between the hours of 10pm-8am.
Guests will enter at their own convenience after check in (3pm). We live nearby should a need arise and are available to you through messaging.Neighborhood overview
PLEASE READ: The Nest is located in a lower income diverse neighborhood called College Hill just one block south of the Federal Hill historic district.Getting around
In the neighborhood, you'll see tight-knit community. You'll see elderly people who were born and raised there and youth walking home from our award- winning historic middle school just one block away. You may hear people greeting one another loudly or enjoying music on a nice day. You'll see people working hard to break the vicious cycle of generational poverty.
We believe this neighborhood has tremendous unseen resources though it's been marginalized and stigmatized for decades. Its value isn't in its monetary power, but in its resilient people who know how to make something out of nothing.
We invite you to come with an open heart and enjoy a stay at the Nest.
