Guestbook comments from the owner
Dear Jack, Donna and I want to thank you for all the kindness and hospitality you showed us on our recent trip to Washington DC. Your cottage is a wonderful place to say and the best value we've found in temporary accommodations in the DC area...ever. We have traveled the US extensively throughout our careers and prefer vacation rentals to hotel accommodations. We've never experienced as warm, comfortable and well appointed space as your cottage. We actually looked forward to returning each night and preparing meals in the gourmet kitchen. The Alexandria location was convenient for travel up to DC and Maryland and down to Fairfax and Springfield for business meetings. BTW, Old town Alexandria is a great place for shopping and entertainment as well. We encourage visitors spend some time on King and Washington Streets to really get a feel for Alexandria. Be sure to visit the cool art shops at the Torpedo factory!



Thank you for everything! The cottage is so nice, we hope that it will be available for our next trip to the DC area.



Sincerely,

Dale Dimmick

We have been opening up our Cottage from time to time and have enjoyed meeting so many nice people. When we open up our Cottage, we want our visitors to have a unique and memorable experience. If you have a good experience with us, you'll come back and you will also tell your friends about us!

Jack purchased this cottage in 2007

Alexandria is FULL of history and conveniently located to downtown Washington, DC. We like the 'neighborhood' feel of Alexandria and the beautiful architecture, along with the convenience of the nearby King Street Metro and Alexandria Union Station.

Staying at The Cottage vs. a Hotel room. We offer the following:

Kitchen

Prepare gourmet meals or a Thanksgiving feast. The Cottage is fully equipped with all you need to prepare meals for families with small children and people with special dietary needs. Vacationing on a Budget? Eating at home leaves more money for shopping and area attractions.

Space

The Cottage allows you to relax in private (indoors or out). Enjoy the beautifully landscaped Patio with Weber Gas Grill.

Privacy

No need to hang out the “ do not disturb ” sign. For a romantic getaway or a 'get away from it all.' YOU decide when you want to wake up.

Luxurious Extras

We supply shampoo, conditioner, cotton balls, Q-tips and so much more.

Laundry

Separate Laundry Room where you can wash, dry and fold. We even supply the detergent and dryer sheets.

Convenience

Walk to King Street Metro or stroll into Old Town, Alexandria

A/C and Heating!

LOVE THIS PLACE

  • 5 of 5
This is a great place to stay. Jack & Nyla are wonderful hosts and their cottage has everything I needed for a comfortable stay. I guess the greatest thing that can be said in a review is that I plan on staying there again in the not too distance future.

FABULOUS FIND!

  • 5 of 5
My family stayed here for 5 days. We did not have a car because everything was accessible within a very short walk to Old Town and the metro stattion. The cottage was charming and totally accommodated our needs. The outdoor patio was a delightful place to dine in the beauty of the backyard. The owner, Jack, was concerned for our comfort and saw to any needs we had. The neighborhood was quiet and picturesque. Having access to the laundry room was an added bonus.We would definitely stay here again .

SUCH A GEM!

  • 5 of 5
I had a wonderfully relaxing stay, thank you so much, Jack and Nyla! After a day filled with sightseeing and/or friends, it was the perfect, quiet suburban refuge to return to :)
Being able to sit outside in the beautiful garden was a huge plus, greatly supporting the 'home away from home' feeling...
Personally, I loved the bi-level set-up, however I imagine it a bit inconvenient with several guests.
I absolutely recommend this cosy cottage for individuals or couples looking for a clean and very convenient location near DC!! Just don't book the days I'm looking to return... ;)

COTTAGE

  • 3 of 5
This is a nice home with a wonderful location. You should be aware that it is quite small with limited seating. The first floor is a bedroom with a trundle bed vs king. The lower level is a kitchen with two stools for seating. The only space to relax with a glass of wine is the tabe outside, which is very pleasant if weather cooperates. The owner is very responsive.

Owner's Response: Our Cottage is exactly as described. We go above and beyond the call of duty to make sure each and every guest is aware of the our space. Additionally, we try to ALWAYS be there for them with questions/concerns. The bed in the Cottage is indeed a Trundle bed, when opened, converts to a King Size bed with TOP OF THE LINE mattresses. As noted in our description ... perfect for 2. Can accommodate up to 4. However, if one plans on inviting numerous members of family/friends over to chat inside of the Cottage, there is indeed limited seating. Inside, we do provide other seating. We always welcome feedback from our guests, so we can improve what we enjoy doing. Our Cottage has a beautiful outdoor area that one can entertain themselves; family members; or guests. We are PROUD to have 'repeat' guests for over the last 5 years. Simply, because WE CARE!

GREAT VACATION HOME

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I loved the warmth and beauty of the neighborhood, as well as the coziness of the cottage. The downstairs kitchen was a perfect way to begin our day with coffee and a meal before heading out to DC for sightseeing. The first week we walked everywhere, and the Metro depot in downtown Alexandria is 15 minutes away. The second week we rented a car and there is adequate parking on the street in front of the cottage. Jack actually drove us to the dealership when he found out that we were about to take the bus. He is a real gentleman and is there when you need him, but respectful of your privacy. I've recommended the Cottage to my Sister and Brother-in-law for a visit next year and we hope this place is still available when we vacation here again in the future.

WE'RE GLAD WE FOUND THIS!

We're glad we found this!

This was a BIG trip for myself, wife and daughter, so trusting a listing found on a website was a large leap of faith. Boy, did we get lucky. Jack's cottage was perfect for the 3 of us. Jack (Nyla, too) were helpful and friendly without being too close. We were relying on public transport, so the big grocery shopping was a concern- till Jack volunteered to drive us to the store, wait for us, and return. We discovered that public transport worked quite well, with a short walk to a bus which took us to the train into the city.
The Cottage is well-equipped, nicely decorated, and very clean. Highly recommended.
