What makes this house unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

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.

Highly recommend this for a retreat

  • 5 of 5
From the moment we started working with you until the day we left we loved everything about your gorgeous property. As 5 professionals we wanted a retreat for business and your home was luxurious and cozy. You are the perfect hostess who has thought of everything, the incredible detail, lovely touches... everything was magnificent.

Thank you for being so flexible and responsive to our arrival and departure times. Maria from our office loved working with you.

The kitchen is so well equipped, the beds are so comfy, the robes and towels were soft and the sizes of the TV screens is amazing. We also loved your taste in furniture. Such a well set up house. The binder full of information was so comprehensive.

Visiting in December we were able to enjoy all the facilities and especially loved you'd decorated for the holidays. We highly recommend your property, working with you and the location.

Great for large family of all ages!

  • of 5
We had an amazing stay. As all the other reviews have stated, the place was beautiful, linens and towels luxurious, clean, spacious, etc. We enjoyed preparing large meals in the kitchen, walking and running through the nearby trail, playing at the playground/ creek, playing football in the backyard, and watching a young cousin decide to plunge into the hottub fully clothed in November. It was just that inviting, apparently. We stayed with a baby and toddler, as well as older children, and the space worked well for everybody. Just a fabulous stay. Also very close proximity to groceries and pharmacy, as well as a number of restaurants. Great location in a stunning setting, warm and cozy inside. Thanks so much Linda.

As a group of 10 seasoned adults, we found the house comfortable, convenient and enjoyable. Access to the metro was tricky but manageable once we found our way around. The house was well equipped and the furnishings supplied great comfort to weary site seers. The kitchen (although we didn't use it much) was well furnished and supplied for the start of a wonderful week. A special thanks to Linda for all her assistance both before our arrival and after. What a great place to stay. We really liked the large gathering area on the main floor that we used to discuss the days events and plan for the next day.

Great place to stay by all measures

  • 5 of 5
Our family, five kids and four adults, stayed here for a long weekend get together and to visit a few DC sites. Linda's home was as promised, and perhaps even better. The house is spacious and perfectly furnished. Everything you want and need is there. Our grand kids, ages 11-16, loved their bunk room, the 80 inch TV and massage chair didn't hurt. We had to pull them out of there to go see DC. The home is simply perfect for any group of 8-12. Linda has taken the time to explain every thing you'll want to know - notebooks in the house as well as on her website. The area is beautiful and close to two metro red line stations into DC. We were very impressed and happy with our choice. We have already told several friends that if they go to DC with their families and want a lovely, spacious, cost effective place to stay - this is it.

Stunning and impressive property

  • 5 of 5
There were three couples who spent three nights on this beautiful property. Awaiting us upon arrival were beautiful fresh flowers and a bowl of fruit. The home is open and comfortable and has anything you would need to enjoy your stay. The beds were VERY comfy with top notch linens and mattresses and pillows! As another reviewer mentioned, it was hard to get up in the morning from such a comfortable bed! We did not take advantage of the outside amenities, as the weather was rainy during our stay and it was a bit muddy. But Linda was so helpful in explaining all the metro procedures for us, and having lots of literature available for things to do, restaurants, etc . We all enjoyed our stay and would go back again in a heartbeat. The couple of little things we mentioned to Linda ( one of the tubs was slow to drain and another had a loose connection on the shower door ) - she offered to come out THAT DAY to repair, but we told her we were fine to wait. That driveway is STEEP and SCARY...so I understood why Linda had given us some pointers on how to back down the driveway! But my husband had no trouble parking and backing us out...good thing I wasn't the driver! Thank you Linda, for a very wonderful place to stay for our little mini reunion with our friends.

Btw, the lamps in this house are absolutely gorgeous!!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your wonderful review about your stay! I am so happy that you enjoyed the house. It's good to hear that your husband managed the driveway well. The first few times I tried to back down were a challenge so it's good to hear the tips came in handy. I would love to welcome you all back for another reunion if you feel like returning for some more fun in DC. Thanks again for taking the time to write a review!

Wonderful family vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed at several VRBO properties. This house was by far the best and most comfortable place we have stayed. Our family (wife and I, mother-in-laws, daughters, son-in-law, and grand daughter) spent a week in DC for a family vacation and sightseeing trip. The location was very convenient to the metro stop in Silver Springs, which we used for almost all of our transportation. Linda went above and beyond to with the furnishings including the very comfortable beds throughout the house. The adult "kids" especially enjoyed playing video games on the 80" TV in the slumber party room when we weren't out sightseeing. We really enjoyed cooking our breakfasts and dinners in the well equipped gourmet kitchen.
We highly recommend Sligo Creek Manor to anyone visiting DC. We will definitely stay there again for future visits!
