In 1936, the owners of Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore built a manor home on more than 54 acres in Howard County that once belonged to the descendants of Charles Carroll of Carrollton, a signer of the Declaration of Independence. That property at 3925 Folly Quarter Road in Ellicott City is now for sale for $7 million. "I call this one of the prime, principal properties of Howard County, sitting on one of the highest elevations there," said listing agent Creig Northrop, of the Creig Northrop Team of Long & Foster Real Estate.

It won’t be Haussner’s, so forget that giant ball of string. But if brewer Stephen Demczuk’s plans go through, the old Haussner’s location could be a German-style “guest house,” with a microbrewery. On his Beer in Baltimore blog, Alexander D. Mitchell IV has a mouth-watering post about plans for the old Haussner's location in Highland town. “Gypsy brewer” Stephen Demczuk wants Haussner's to be the home for his Raven Special Lager, says Mitchell. “Everything is in hand except for the money,” Demczuk says.

With a new addition and dozens of amenities - including space for thousands of bottles of wine - the home at 14123 Mantua Mill Road in Baltimore County stands out. "Brookfield is one of the most compelling properties in Worthington Valley," said Heidi Krauss of Krauss Real Property Brokerage, the listing agent for the property. "[It is] stellar in every way. " The 122-year-old estate in Glyndon recently sold for $3.5 million. The new owners are enjoying close to 9,000 square feet of living space in the traditional home that sits on nearly 33 acres of land cradled in the rolling hills of Maryland's fox-hunting country.

WILLIAMSBURG, Va. -- Outside the window, the heavy, steady rhythm of strong horses pulling a carriage sounds in the thick, mid-summer air: clip-clop, clip-clop. Later, the martial sounds of a fife-and-drum corps draw one outside to see what the commotion is all about. This is the world of Colonial Williamsburg. Not the only one, mind you. Living history programs are making the historic district more than a quaint vacation getaway. You can learn a lot here. But after all the brain food, sometimes you just want good food and a relaxing place to rest your head.

PARADISE, PA. I think there is a law out there that applies almost without exception to family vacations. Let's call it Griswold's Law, after Chevy Chase's famous character in the National Lampoon Vacation films. The law dictates that these trips, however well planned, will be chaotic, exhausting and often worse. And then, after the passage of time, they will become, quite clearly, the best fun you've had in years. My comedy of errors in Pennsylvania's Dutch country -- where I was accompanied by my wife and two young daughters and limited to a $500 budget -- pales in comparison with the many blunders of the Griswold family.

By all accounts, Frank and Wendy Bunch's farm in Kent County would be an appropriate — and historically correct — setting for any film or documentary on America's Colonial past. One would only need to replace the couple's late-model cars with carriages along the private road that enters onto a breathtakingly long driveway lined with 134 cedar trees. The banks of a large pond in the front yard are occupied by metal herons that appear to be alive and waddling ducks that, on closer inspection, are. A brick Colonial, built in 1781, the home sits on 78 acres of flat and verdant pasture and is a National Trust historic property.
