About Jack

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

Why Jack chose Alexandria

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.

What makes this cottage unique

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!

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

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.

A great value for the price and for the DC area.

  • 4 of 5

We selected the Cottage because we wanted to be near Old Town, Alexandria. The price was exceptional compared to local hotels. We also wanted the ability to make some of our own meals rather than eat out all the time.

In terms of being a great value for the price, the Cottage is hard to beat. The description of the Cottage is very accurate and you should set your expectations accordingly. The Cottage is not luxurious, but it is clean, quiet, and has everything you need to be comfortable. It is fine for two people. The upstairs bedroom has enough space when the daybed is closed. The daybed is trundle style; once you pull it out to full king-size, it does take up most of the room, so just be prepared for that. Still, the bed itself is very comfortable. The adjoining bathroom is small but adequate, with a great shower and a window overlooking a nice yard. A winding staircase leads down to a fully equipped kitchen and a small table for two. The downstairs also offers access to the backyard. The property is well maintained. You have your own separate entrance and a parking space right outside the door, which is a real plus.

Located in a lovely, quiet residential area, the Cottage is an enjoyable 10-minute walk through a nice neighborhood to reach King Street. We did it several times in the evenings and felt perfectly safe. You will be at the end of King Street, right near the Metro stop, which is the best way to get around DC. There is also a Metro transportation office next door to the Embassy Suites hotel across the street from the station. Here you can get day passes for the Metro, a good idea if you plan to make multiple stops around town.

One of the best services offered by Alexandria is the free trolley that runs along King Street all the way to the waterfront. Hop on and off anytime until about 10 PM. It will save you a lot of walking. Needless to say, the shops and restaurants along King Street and close by are wonderful, and it is so much nicer to stay in this quaint village-like area rather than in downtown DC or other nearby cities. Here's a tip: If you're a Crate and Barrel fan, there is a Crate and Barrel outlet store not far from the King Street Metro.

Jack is a gracious host. He leaves goodies for you in the refrigerator and provides lots of information about local sights, restaurants, etc. There are plenty of TV channels, as well as DVDs and books. The Cottage is a great cost-effective alternative to an expensive hotel room.

THE PLACE TO STAY!

  • 5 of 5

My wife, daughter and I stayed at the Cottage. We wanted a nice getaway for the weekend to see the sights of DC and experience Old Town Alexandria. We had never tried staying at places other than a hotel. LUCKY US to have found 'The Cottage'. The Cottage offers more than a hotel, along with comfort and convenience. We were sold on the kitchen...a full kitchen and a beautiful walk-out patio. HIGHLY RECOMMEND THE COTTAGE! We will be back. Thanks, Jack

The best place to stay in Alexandria

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week for business. It was perfect. Location is excellent, you can walk to everything. Short walk to the metro and quickly into DC. The neighborhood is wonderful. Tons of parking and the neighbors were all very friendly. Jack and NYLA are the best. Great host. The cottage is so charming. We left the trundle bed set up in a king bed position and we had enough room to move around the upper level. The lower level has a great kitchen. I cooked a lot. The outdoor area is amazing. The garden was so peaceful. The grill was great we used that often as well. We are already planning our next trip. Can't wait to return. Thank you Jack and NYLA we had the best work/vacation possible.

LOVE THE COTTAGE. VERY CHARMING!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and fiance loved the warmth and coziness of the Cottage. The neighborhood is definitely upper-class and well-maintained. This is a wonderful 'ROMANTIC' place for two. The convenience of stores; metro and having mostly everything very close is a BIG PLUS! The owner takes great 'care' in maintaining the Cottage (inside and out). CLEAN, CLEAN, CLEAN! The downstairs kitchen and outside beautiful patio, is a perfect way to begin your day with coffee and a meal before heading out to DC for sightseeing.

We HIGHLY recommend the Cottage and we will return!
