Whether seeking a romantic retreat, a
peaceful weekend getaway from today's busy lifestyle, or an enchanting
setting for a wedding or other milestone event, Gramercy Mansion
offers exceptional hospitality with an Old World flavor. The majestic
Tudor-style mansion and estate is situated on 45 acres in Maryland's
historic Greenspring Valley. Tucked away in delightful seclusion yet
only minutes from downtown Baltimore and the Inner Harbor, the estate
is all the more treasured for it's convenience to area attractions
including fine restaurants, museums, theaters and historic sites.
Built in 1902 by Alexander J. Cassatt, owner of the Pennsylvania
Railroad and brother of the American Impressionist painter Mary
Cassatt, Gramercy Mansion was presented as a wedding gift to his
daughter, Eliza. Later owners included the prominent Senator Brewster
family, descendants of Benjamin Franklin, and the Koinonia Foundation,
a predecessor of the Peace Corps. Under the ownership of the Pomykala
family, the home has been restored and welcomes guests far and wide
with the charming ambiance of a country bed & breakfast.
Guests travel up a winding road lined with stone walls and vistas to
the porte cochere and enter the spacious foyer, showcasing a stunning
chandelier. Main floor rooms feature fireplaces, period furnishings,
oriental carpets, artwork and antiques. A graceful winding staircase
leads to ten charmingly decorated guest suites on the second and third
floors. Bed & Breakfast rooms boast comfortable king-sized beds,
fireplaces surrounded in period tile and topped with mantles of walnut
or oak, and whirlpool tubs set in marble. We are fully
handicap-accessible with a lovely first-floor guest room offering an
accessible double whirlpool tub, king-sized bed and entrances.
A sumptuous gourmet breakfast is prepared each morning with fresh
herbs and produce from our working farm, organically maintained and
operated since the 1950s, and served on the sunny terrace or by a
glowing fire in the dining room.
Birdwatching and hiking are among the numerous on-site activities
enjoyed by guests. An Olympic-sized pool and tennis court are
available for guest use as well.
Gramercy Mansion and the adjacent Carriage House may be reserved for
weddings, parties, and corporate meetings, treating guests to
memorable events celebrated with the style and grace of an era past.
