When staying at Sligo Creek Manor you will enjoy the best of both worlds. The close proximity to visit Washington, DC during the day and the luxurious home with the best of everything to return to in the evening. I have spared no expense in trying to offer as many special touches and amenities as possible including the outdoor hot tub, the best bedding and duvets, heated toilet seats, a massage chair, Sirius Satellite wired throughout and electronic gadgets that will entertain you on a day you feel like staying in. You will enjoy the neighborhood in all seasons. The fall foliage is striking, the spring flowers and flowering tress bloom in abundance, it's lush and green during summer and you'll enjoy the outdoor hot tub especially during the winter.

Thank you for all of the amenities. We stay as a family at VRBO homes every year and yours was the most well appointed we have ever stayed at.
We especially appreciated the beds and bedding. Heaven!
We love the way you furnished the home and found there was plenty of room for our group of 10 to spread out. My husband especially enjoyed having a DVR on the TV's (just like being home), the Sirius radio in the bedrooms and the hot tub in the backyard. It was really chilly in February and we loved using the hot tub to warm us up at night. Thank you for creating a truly upscale property. If we return to DC we will definitely stay at your home again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your thoughtful review. I am so happy that you all enjoyed your stay and the hot tub. This was certainly a chilly winter, I'm happy to hear you soaked in the hot tub to warm up. I would love to welcome you back if you are ever in the DC area again.

My niece was married in Virginia the previous weekend and those of us who had never been to DC decided to spend a few days here. There were only 5 of us, making this choice a bit above our budget...but after seeing the pics and reading about the amenities, we couldn't resist and decide to splurge! We were not sorry...our only regret was not having more time to enjoy the beautiful accomodations. We came to see DC, so we did - but we all agree that next time, we will slow it down and spend more time enjoying the home which was so thoughtfully created. I have been renting homes for vacations for the last several years. I have never once been disappointed, and very often pleasantly surpirsed, but this one was in a class all by itself. Linda was a pleasure to work with and made me feel like she was there for us no matter what the need. However, there were no needs because she already thought of everything! The home was lovely, well-maintained, and beautifully decorated. There were binders and books with all kinds of useful info for visitors that we made use of. We cooked dinner a couple nights and found everything we needed in the well-appointed kitchen. The hot tub was great, especially after a long chilly day of sight-seeing. The area was gorgeous and the large backyard would be amazing to spend time in during warmer weather. While many rental homes skimp on amenities and have very basic funriture/decor, Linda went all out here to make it not only feel like a home, but a lavish luxurious one. I could go on and on (did I mention the massage chair?!?) but the main thing I want to get across is this: if you choose this home to spend some time in with friends and family...you will certainly not regret it!

This was a most fabulous, comfortable home!

  • Submitted: Oct 24, 2013
  • Stayed: Oct 2013
This house was perfect for our family of 8. It was extremely clean and comfortable. The kitchen was very well equipped with all the cookware and utensils we needed. Our family likes to cook, so this was important to us. The hot tub was spotless and a welcome end to a busy day of sight seeing. We enjoyed playing Wii games, the rockers on the porch, and walking the nearby trails. Upon our late arrival, we were welcomed with a beautiful bowl of fruits, candies, and a pumpkin! This was such a special touch to add to the home. Overall, we would highly recommend this home for cleanliness, comfort, beauty, and convenience.

We spent our annual family reunion here and thoroughly enjoyed the amenities.
The owner has thought of ever convenience and we appreciated them all.
We found it convenient to take the metro in to see all of the sites at the capitol. The pictures are accurate, everything was spotless and what you cannot appreciate from the photos is how comfortable the beds, bedding and furniture are. Also it's hard to see in photos how beautiful the neighborhood is. Truly top of the line.
We highly recommend this home to other families visiting DC.

We loved our stay in this beautiful home. The porch with its swing, the beautiful yard, the well-equipped kitchen, the lovely furniishings, all helped to make our family gathering relaxed and happy. We were delighted to find such a gem, so very close to the Capitol.
