Overview

About the property

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!

About Christena

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

Why Christena chose Frederick

We bought the home quite simply because we fell in love with it!

Just amazing!

  • 5 of 5

The location of the house is perfect if you want to enjoy the peacefullness of the old town areas! The Carroll Creek, the Baker Park, everything is around the corner, a very walkable distance!

Perfect Location

  • 4 of 5

A most enjoyable five night stay.

Darwin's Hearth is in a perfect location --- a short walk from interesting stores and restaurants and a short drive from the local highways.

The house was clean and well organized with all the essentials in place.

We particularly enjoyed being able to barbeque and dine outside and having a fenced backyard for our dog.

Yes, there is a fair bit of street noise Friday and Saturday night but it only bothered one out of the three people in our group. The other two slept right through it.

Frederick is perfectly positioned for visits to Harper's Ferry, Gettysburg or Washington.

If we're back in the area, we'll definitely stay here again.

Wonderful!!! Highly recommend

  • 4 of 5

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!

Convenient location for walking around the historic part of Frederick - dog friendly too

  • 4 of 5

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!
