PEACEFUL NEST!

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay at this beautiful vintage, rustic log home! It was so peaceful, impeccably clean, spacious and beautiful! We really enjoyed the natural vintage beauty of the cabin, including the very cool wooden ceilings, glossy log wood interior and unique fireplace. It was a wonderful, quiet retreat we really needed, enjoyed and appreciated. It has both heat, central and easy to set up wireless. Our small doggies really enjoyed the cabin as well! The home was part of a neighborhood, but felt very private, excluded and a safe, restful retreat. Even with our many walks near the cabin with our doggies, we only saw 1 lady gardening, two fisherman and a dog walker. We were also pleased to find everything we needed in the hallway closets, etc. There was also lots of storage to include a “mud room”, outdoor seating, table, gas grill and so much more! We did see one beautiful deer about a block from the cabin. There were a number of birds that you would hear singing in the morning to welcome in a new beautiful day. We used the home as a base for general relaxation and also to participate in commencement ceremonies at University of Maryland. It was an easy 35 minute drive to the U. of MD campus. There was a book in the cabin that listed local points of interests, restaurants, etc. including a supermarket, gas station, Burger King and others. There was a short list of light cleaning chores to do upon checkout which took about 15 minutes and which was nothing outside the norm that would be done to show respect to the home owners. We received our security deposit back within 48 hours which was also very appreciated. We predominately communicated with the seller via email. She sent us the address and access code to lockbox several weeks before our visit. She called us the day of our arrival and checked to see if there was anything we needed which was very nice of her! We had a personal situation back home that shortened the end of visit, which the owner was very supportive and accommodating regarding this. She has since checked in with us a couple of times to check up on us which was really appreciated. Again, we immensely enjoyed our visit to this beautiful classic, vintage log home! Looking for peace and quiet, rest and relaxation in a vintage log home? Look no further – don’t miss this one! Absolutely lovely, classic vintage, rustic beauty you have to see in person to truly appreciate! Wonderful, compassionate owners, wonderful to deal with!

QUIET, CLEAN, EVERYTHING YOU NEED

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed here with our 3 boys and mostly used it as a base for DC sightseeing. The drive into DC wasn't bad at all (we used parking panda app and got a space next to all the sites for about 14 dollars per day). They had some great board games and good dvds for families. The bathroom was very clean and there was ample room for everyone. There kitchen is well stocked, corkscrews and all. The owners were very nice and extremely responsive. And there is wifi which helped when we were planning our excursions. A great option for family trips to DC.

OVERPRICED, DARK, DINGY, DISAPPOINTING

  • 1 of 5
I stay in VRBO & Homeaway vacation rentals a lot but this cabin was extremely disappointing. Photos & description do not accurately depict reality (perhaps why there are so few photos). While I appreciate “rustic” I did not expect such a dark, dingy, depressing interior in a less than desirable, run-down neighborhood. I paid for 4 nights but only stayed 1 night. Left early morning of 2nd day and found much better place to stay. Lost a lot of money but could not stay at this cabin as I felt neither comfortable nor safe.
First concern safety. Several windows unlocked when I checked in. I got all locked except kitchen which was impossible to lock. Had difficulty sleeping first night worrying about that unlocked kitchen window. Cabin very dark and dingy inside which made me uncomfortable. Neighbors on both sides have a lot of unsightly junk in their yards. Washer & dryer in basement but the floor was very wet so that didn’t feel safe either. Seemed like it had flooded recently so I didn’t think it a good idea to do wash (it was a little creepy down there anyway).
List of “cleaning chores” these owners assign to guests on check-out is unreasonable, unfair and onerous. Especially when considering guests pay large upfront non-refundable cleaning fee. I’ve stayed in dozens of vacation home rentals past few years. Being asked to strip beds, start dishwasher, set temperatures, take out trash are normal and reasonable checkout chores for guests. BUT – I have NEVER had owner tell us to “sweep all floors, wipe appliances, counters, etc clean, fold blankets & bed sheets”. I’m a little confused – what exactly is the cleaning fee for if I - guest, am being told to do MAJORITY of cleaning upon my departure! I resent paying a large cleaning fee and then being told to do virtually all of the cleaning myself. I do not go on vacation to do unpaid cleaning chores. Felt like I was being taken advantage of.
Owners not responsive. Did not provide adequate or prompt check-in instructions. Had to email twice to get address and even then they did not give me access code to lockbox key until I called while enroute hour away from arrival. No directions provided. This info should have been given to me much earlier, prior to my arrival. So I packed up and left early the morning after I arrived. Found another place that was nicer, safer, and where owners did not require their guests to do majority of cleaning upon departure.

WE'LL BE BACK!!

we'll be back!!
  • 5 of 5
We came in from midwest to join our family for Thanksgiving. This home was easy to find on the outskirts of DC yet nicely secluded from all the urban hub-bub. Heavily treed neighborhood provided wonderful birds ( red headed woodpeckers, cardinals, blue jays chickadees right outside our picture window. And bald headed eagles eyeing the numerous waterfowl right down the street at the waterfront each morning!!
Much more spacious than the pictures indicate. Clean, homey and a wonderfully stocked kitchen with all the tools we needed for much cooking. The large fireplace is a PLUS!
The owner was very accessible and helpful with our questions. Hiking, colonial village and fort washington are all within minutes. The large fenced yard was nice to explore and welcomed by our dog.

FANTASTIC!

  • 5 of 5
We rented this home for 6 nights. There were 4 adults and 2 teenagers and plenty of room. We wanted something close to Washington DC, that was comfortable for 6 of us, that was reasonably priced, where we could cook and relax after touring DC and this was perfect!! The owner has thought of everything that you could possibly need...from a fully stocked kitchen, board games, brochures from the area - even a blow dryer. It was so nice to be able to spend the day in DC and then come back to all of the comforts of home. We even saw deer a few times. I will be recommending this to all of my family and friends that plan on visiting this area.
