EXCELLENT HOME AWAY FROM HOME!

  • 5 of 5
As a previous reviewer shared, this is like staying at a friends house. Everything was exceptionally clean, organized and very, very comfortable. The layout of the house made it possible to have time together, as well as personal space for down time. We brought our daughter (adult) and two grandchildren (15 & 10) to see Washington, D.C. and the surrounding areas and so we were on-to-go the majority of time. So, when we arrived home in the evening it was great to have a comfortable place to relax, cook dinner, and talk about our adventures. The pantry and kitchen cabinets were well stocked with staples and the kitchen provided space for family meals, as well as planning the next adventure. The BBQ on the back porch made grilling easily accessible to the kitchen. The beds were exceptionally comfortable, with nice linens and lots of great towels. The house is located close to Shady Grove Metro (20 minutes), as well as providing easy access to the freeways - 70 or 270 - depending on where you want to go. We highly recommend this property and hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did!

The house was a little larger and more expensive than I planned. The house and landscape were spectacular and close to our wedding destination.

WONDERFUL PLACE TO STAY!

  • 5 of 5
This is a fabulous house and we thoroughly enjoyed our weekend! It is SO much better than renting multiple hotel rooms for a group vacation or family trip, providing space to relax, a kitchen to cook in, make tea in the evenings, etc. The beds are all very comfortable, and the details well thought-out and appointed. The house has a very nice deck off the back, and a quiet back yard.

This house is on a quiet cul-de-sac in a residential neighborhood accessible to I-70 and I-270. It's a great spot to stay for trips to Frederick and Baltimore, MD, and day trips in to Washington, DC (about 45-60 minutes by car from the Air and Space Museum and The Mall in downtown DC, although catching the Metro at one of the Maryland stops would probably be a better idea). We spent a wonderful afternoon having lunch and shopping in historic downtown Frederick, about 30 minutes from the house.

For our group of girls on a weekend trip together, it was a really nice place to come home to after being out and about all day. Renting a house for all of us proved cheaper than multiple hotel rooms, and gave us so much more room to relax together in comfort with both a lovely living room and comfortable family room with lots of books and DVD's. It would be a great spot for families visiting Frederick (30 minutes away) and Gettysburg (about an hour away) for history buffs, and Baltimore for the Inner Harbor and Aquarium (about 50 minutes away). There are also State Parks in and around Frederick for hiking and biking. Harpers Ferry and C&O Canal access is also about 45 minutes away, and Leesburg, Va is less than an hour away.

It's a great location, centrally located to all sorts of activities, and the owners have done a fantastic job of making it a great place to stay. With all the family photos and comfortable furnishings, it feels like staying in a friend's home rather than a sterile rental property.

Highly recommended.

GREAT STAY

  • 5 of 5
We were very pleased with our stay. The house was in a central area for places we wanted to visit. It was only a short drive to the metro station which was perfect for our group. House was a nice place for our family to relax in the morning and evening. Can not think of any negative about our stay. Strongly recommend staying if need multiple bed rooms this is the place for you
Stayed 10 days went all over and it was great to have a place like this to come back to at night

PERFECT R&R RETREAT

Perfect R&R Retreat
  • 5 of 5
Our family group planned a reunion and sight-seeing week in the DC area in October. This home was the perfect retreat for us. It is close enough to the cities for day trips but far enough away from them for visitors to feel secluded from the hustle and bustle. Check the Metro schedule and avoid the traffic if you can. The home is very inviting and comfortable, with everything you need for cooking. Check the pantry before buying groceries; the "take some, leave some" practice means that some items ( e.g. cooking oil, seasonings, paper products, pasta) may already be on hand. Explicit instructions from the owners made finding the house and and getting oriented to local shops a quick and easy process. We had a delightful stay.

FABULOUS HOME AND VACATION

  • 5 of 5
We had such wonderful time in your lovely Damascus home. When we arrived everything was spotless, beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The neighborhood was so quiet and the outdoor areas were terrific. The house is conveniently located, an easy drive to the Metro allowing us to spend four days in Washington, D.C., but just as convenient for our trips to Baltimore and Gettysburg. The directions provided by the owner were very detailed and made all features within the house easy to use. We would gladly return here for another visit.
