Great little cottage!

This great cottage was exactly as advertised, which is always a blessing! Curtis was prompt and helpful on all communications, and all professionally handled. It was perfectly clean and had just about all you could need. The air conditioning worked very well, which was a plus on the hotter days.
We were on the go to much to enjoy the neighborhood as much as I would have liked, but my 9 year old son did meet a friend at the little park down the road. My 14 year old son, thought he was in heaven having a TV in the bedroom. The house had a nice deck to entertain on if you needed/wanted the space.
It was close to grocery stores, Giant and Safeway. I found almost everything I needed at the Giant store, including a specialty section to accommodate food allergies and Celiac.
The location worked well for us. We spent a few days around the Annapolis area. For all of our D.C. time we drove to New Carrolton station and parked there. We parked just across the street from station for $4/day. The station attendants were very helpful.
We cooked most of the time in the cottage, so we didn't need to eat in Annapolis much. However, the first night we arrived was Saturday evening after Naval Academy Graduation. Downtown was packed with people, very crowded but exciting to see. We stopped by Middleton Tavern. Maybe because it was so busy they weren't up to regular service, but service was very slow and food not terrific for price paid.
We drove all the way to the Udvar-Hazy Air and Space Museum, well worth the drive if you have the time. Traffic was a nightmare both directions, North loop in a.m., South loop in p.m. The key to driving anywhere, is don't be in a rush and give yourself plenty of time!
We would love to return to the cottage in the future if the opportunity ever arrises. Wonderful to know what to expect!
Curtis, thank you and your wife for sharing your beautiful little cottage with our family!
