Darwin's Hearth has been standing in the heart of Downtown Frederick since Stonewall Jackson marched his troops through the town on their way to battle. Whether you are looking for a stroll through the area's rich history or a week's getaway in a super trendy little town, our little home is waiting to welcome you!
Our home is a completely renovated historic home within walking distance (2 blocks) of all downtown shops, restaurants and bars. Walk 2 blocks in the other direction and you'll stumble into Frederick's magnificent Baker Park that has a big playground for the kids, lovely strolls for the adults and free concerts every Sunday evening in the summer.
At Darwin's Hearth, we welcome your whole family including small children and even your small doggy if he or she knows about indoor rules!
As an added treat, with every rental of at least one week we'll throw in a free massage (either at our home or at the spa) by My Red Bow Spa in nearby Braddock Heights!
We know you'll love our home as much as we do and can't wait to welcome you into the warmth of our hearth and home!
I grew up in the area and have lots of family nearby. We bought this lovely home to live in, but work has taken us away from the United States for a few years and while we can't enjoy our home, we would love for others to enjoy its quaintness, convenience and rich history.
Christena purchased this townhome in 2012
We bought the home quite simply because we fell in love with it!
Well equipped and a great location. Nice to be able to walk to restaurants and cafes. Would stay here again and highly recommend it!
We came in for the army/navy game, and had a wonderful experience. It was like being at home. The hospitality team was great. Loved the history of the town. The house is in a good location for the battlefields and great walking into town. Will be coming back in the summer time!!
Christena was very responsive and accommodating to our needs. The townhouse is just as described. We are relocating to Frederick and will definitely book the townhouse for our friends and family to visit!
We are an older couple who wanted to explore the possibility of living in or around Frederick some day. We rented this conveniently-located historic townhouse with a fenced backyard mainly because the owner was willing to rent to people who wish to bring their well-behaved dog... and our dog loved the place! We loved many things about this rental besides the location - the updated kitchen with all the appliances we needed, the updated bathrooms, the queen bed and ceiling fan in the master bedroom, the air-conditioning (important in August!), and all the little touches that make a house a home. The stairs were a little daunting as many reviews told us, but we managed to be careful and the carpet treads on the wooden steps helped a lot. We actually didn't have a problem with the street noise, but we weren't there on a Friday or Saturday night. We didn't mind parking safely in the reserved alley space either. The only issue we had was upon arrival when the hospitality team somehow missed meeting us to open up the home. All in all, you will find this house just as many reviews tell you - and a very easy walk to Carroll Creek Park and Baker Park. So, enjoy!
My husband and I lived in the historic district of Frederick for years and were so pleased to learn about Darwin's Hearth before our recent trip back. The house has good size bedrooms and bathrooms along with a nicely updated kitchen and laundry area as well as a deck with seating out back. We had numerous friends and families staying with us throughout our 2 week rental and there was plenty of room to put everyone up (loads of spare sheets & towels to boot.) The location is great if you want to take advantage of what the historic district has to offer - shops, bars, restaurants, Weinberg Center, Baker Park - all are within easy walking distance. The local hosts were very quick to reply with any questions we had and the owners responded to our emails right away even though they do not live in the US. Renters should be aware that the front rooms of the house are just a few steps off the street and so you will hear traffic noise/street noise in that part of the house but this wasn't a problem for us since we lived there before and knew what to expect. Also, the stairs up to the third floor are quite steep but the owner is honest about that in the description of the property. We stayed in the roomy bedroom on that floor with its wonderful large window and were fine with the stairs. We would definitely stay here again and thank you for sharing the property with us!
When being told parking is "adjacent" you will find the spot in alley a block away, additional cars will have a hard time finding parking nearby.
There are 3 floors with stairs to 3rd (where only tv was located) are very steep. When jets in tub were turned on black was sprayed all over.
There were some ants in kitchen and also a mouse on the counter. Dog next door barks constantly. This is not a good property if you have
children or any mobility problems.
