While it seems like just yesterday, we have now owned INN at 2920 for two years! On October 1st, we quietly congratulated each other and got back to work keeping the INN in tip-top shape for our guests. It's hard to believe INN at 2920 has been Canton's boutique B&B for eight years, having opened and remained successful since September 2001. To more accurately describe our Inn and in keeping with our philosophy and the expectations of today's travelers, we have replaced our slogan to reflect the times:
A Distinctively Contemporary Experience
Baltimore's Boutique Bed and Breakfast
INN at 2920
In this issue we'll admit that Baltimore is Creepy, help you Plan for the Holidays, and make Winning a $75 Gift Certificate even easier with Facebook! And, we'd like to send you a coupon to use or share - check out the details at the bottom of the newsletter.
As we start our third year, we would like to thank all of you who have stayed with us, returned to INN at 2920, and/or helped to spread the word about us.

|Baltimore is Creepy! Don't be afraid - unless you're into creepy things!
Halloween, Edgar Allan Poe's Funeral, and Baltimore Ghost Tours could make for the "Creepiest" visit to Baltimore ever...
- Edgar Allan Poe's bicentennial celebration culminates this month with his "funeral" on Sunday, October 11, 2009. The celebration continues through January, 2010. The Poe House and Museum is open Thursdays thru Sundays and his grave site is nearby
- Baltimore Ghost Tours offers award winning "spooky" walking tours of the hauntings and ghosts of Fell's Point and Mount Vernon. Halloween makes it especially creepy!
- If you're not into creepy, why not check out the Maryland Renaissance Festival through the 25th of October as a perfect Autumn outing
Whatever your taste or desire, a trip to Baltimore this Autumn will be an eery delight. Do you dare?
