We had family coming over from UK for 2 weeks and instead of doing the usual Washington DC tourist thing we thought of doing something different. This was the perfect place to get away from it all. We didn't even realize how fast the 3 days passed by and were lamenting that we could not stay longer. The house had enough rooms (and more importantly enough bathrooms) for the 7 of us. But nothings beats the view. The back of the house is almost all glass so you get unobstructed view of the Potomac no matter where you are. I takes books on these relaxing getaways but I didn't get to read a single page because I was too busy enjoying the view. Each time of the day had its own charm; starting from the beautiful sunrise to the mid-day blue sky and the wind and the waves on the river to the quiet evenings and nights. I don't remember when is the last time I saw so many stars in the night sky. We did our fair share of fishing and grilling. I wish I had a boat or jetski to get on the water. Unfortunately there was no boat or jetski rental places close by. We also visited George Washington's birthplace and ancestral home which is only 15 minutes away. We will definitely be back and stay longer next time. We want to thank the Pooles for sharing the beautiful house with us.
