Spacious and beautiful historic double-parlor in my townhouse which I allow guests to use for events, parties, photography, etc. There is a full kitchen and a powder room (1/2 bath) connected to it. For larger events we can add floors/spaces as neg.


This is NOT a listing for overnight stays. Please do not attempt to book this for that purpose.
This is an almost completely original grand double-parlor complete with 6 original infinity-effect pier mirrors, mantles, woodwork, doors, etc.
Couches, chairs, tables, bookshelves, buffets / servers, bar, fireplaces.
This pricing shown is the ABSOLUTE BASE RATE - a final rate will be negotiated based on details and timing of the event / use. Example - 6 people meeting for a couple of hours is very different than a party for 30 in which I provide settings, coolers, etc. for 8 hours. Obviously I will need to charge accordingly.


Unless otherwise agreed upon only the entry foyer / hallways and the main floor.


Whatever the client / guest wishes, however I do insist on being in the building or having a representative in the building, while guests are in attendance.


Pre-coordinating parking is recommended.

The venue was great. Lots of space. Great ambiance, as well. Lance helped us a lot with setting up and breaking down as well. He was also quite reasonable when our event went over our agreed attendance. I was not expecting as big a final turnout. That lead to some noise issues, which we do apologize for. I was a little surprised when I saw his other guests just walk into the venue without notice. But they were not in our way. If anything I was initially worried we left access to the door open. Thankfully that was not the case. All in all it was a great experience and one that we did appreciate given the last minute nature of this re-booking. I would greatly recommend Lance and the space for those looking for a charming location in the Mt Vernon part of town. Lance was very helpful and accommodating.

Lance was the most genuine, humble and gracious host in his BEAUTIFUL home. Things that we forgot he didn't mind lending to us. The pictures do this 1840's brownstone NO JUSTICE. Enough space for an entire wedding if needed. The street parking was much easier than I expected but the property itself is centrally located downtown. I would definitely rent from Lance again. He was there if we needed him, but we rarely saw himcironically. Thank you again Lance and can't wait to hold another event in your home!

Lance's home is incredible, and he couldn't have been nicer or more patient. I was very impressed with the communication process, which made everything very breezy. Highly recommend.

We stayed with Lance for a business retreat. We were looking for some down time to redesign our website, and talk big picture. The house inspired and we were able to get our creativity going with the atmosphere

My home is a historic pre-civil war merchant’s townhouse that has been restored per the National Parks Service. The lifestyle of its’ original inhabitants meant a very large building with essentially 6 private apartments plus many grand common spaces. That means I can offer many configurations for guests. It is like a Bed & Breakfast that also can be combined, if necessary, for large groups. Perfect for AirBnB right? Unfortunately limitations of the AirBnB website require multiple listings - one for each possible configuration - for this one large house.
my global "policies" are best stated her, rather than updating each listing manually (15 times!). So:
A. Parties, entertaining, events, etc. While my place is vast, it is still a place I work hard to maintain, therefore unless we discuss specifically, up front, I ask that guests list the correct number of folks who will access the house when they book, and limit those folks to access. Put another way, my place is perfect for parties and entertaining, but please don't have parties or use my place for entertaining unless we have discussed up front and settled on arrangements (including fiduciary) to reflect the added risk and wear and tear involved.
B. For some reason AirBnB defaults to making kids essentially free of charge even if the host charges extra for guests above a certain number. I have found that my overhead costs are the same with extra kids as with extra adults... in fact often they are more! Therefore to be fair to my guests who don't have kids, I charge the same for extra kids as for extra adults. Please keep that in mind when booking.
To really see my extensive reviews you must look at them from my host profile rather than just the listing. For a brief synopsis of the house’s history and for a clearer idea of the layout of the mansion see baltimoretownhouse dot wee bly dot well, you know!

About me: I'm an architect, artist, dad, and I have been very involved in the improvement of this neighborhood for the past 11 years. If you value a host who knows everyone and everywhere in the neighborhood, look no further. As a professor of architecture at the local university, and as an urban history buff, I have given many walking tours of the area. If time allows I would be glad to do one for you. I continue to explore even the lesser known parts of the region and am good with directions :) I’m a big fan of all types of food, wine, European beer, cocktails, coffee (geez I’m not as gluttonous as this sounds!), and have been since I turned 19 during my first trip to Italy in 1990. Therefore I can make detailed recommendations regarding the many local food and beverage purveyors in the area.
I have traveled extensively (not much though since fatherhood! :), and lived in many parts of the U.S. as well as London and Melbourne, Australia, although ultimately I think I was supposed to be Italian!
Urban history and culture are of particular interest to me and when I have time I love to delve into my extensive book collection (which is accessible to my guests :). What makes me smile? My diverse group of friends, (many right here in the neighborhood!), beautiful art (I have 3 museums a block away and the train to the DC museums is about 7 blocks away!), thoughtful design, and most of all thoughtful people. Speaking of that - AirBnB!
I've hosted about 800 people at this point, and have been genuinely ecstatic to meet about 98% of them, feeling humbled to know there are so many accomplished and friendly human beings. I love meeting new people, and I have found that most people using AirBnB do too. Some guests need to focus on whatever purpose their visit brought them for. While staying in my home involves some basic contact for check-in, etc., I default to giving my guests as much privacy as possible. So I encourage my guests to communicate to me clearly, and as early as possible, regarding where on the spectrum they wish our relationship to stand... remember I can't read minds and I'm pretty hard to offend on this particular subject :)
Thank you
