Scot and Susan
Why Scot and Susan chose Old Town
I have lived in Old Town Alexandria for almost 20 years and have owned several historic properties. The Ice House is a unique combination of space and charm that is difficult to find in Old Town. Because the building was a warehouse, it is quite open and the windows on the flounder room provide for fantastic light.
What makes this House unique
Old Town is filled with history, adventures, outdoor activities, food, and events. And it is also a perfect location for a first-time or repeat visitor to Washington, D.C. Old Town was a colonial port town, famous for an association with George Washington (who had a townhouse just 300 meters away) and which became part of the District of Columbia. Retro-ceded back to Virginia before the Civil War, Alexandria's many stately homes became army hospitals during the conflict. Many Alexandria properties have been preserved and exhibit the characteristic late-Georgian style of the federal period. The Old Town calendar is filled with events and activities, no matter the time of year. I hope you enjoy your visit.

INCREDIBLE STAY AT THE ICE HOUSE
Scot and Susan are conscientious, thoughtful hosts with excellent communication and attention to detail. Luxury amenities throughout the condo. Gorgeous, clean space. Easy to access in and out. Safe location. The wood floors creaking overhead the bedrooms reminded me fondly of my youth, however not so great for the light sleeper. We hope to stay again, thank you for your incredible hospitality and generous accommodations!
Retreat in the little city
Historic charm combined with convenience summarize this homeaway. Beds super-comfy, high-end finishes in the kitchen and baths, lots of room to spread out and relax and owner is extremely responsive. Only good things to say about this rental!
Great location! Great character and owners answer promptly! Would definitely stay again.
Great home and area
This was one of the best rentals we have ever experienced. The location is perfect with all of your needs, food and entertainment close by. The inside was clean, comfortable and well designed. I highly recommend this home.
Ice House in Old Town
This was one of the best VRBO properties we have experienced. The home was lovely and the location perfect. It was well appointed and clean. Communication with the hosts was quick and easy. The only improvement suggestion would be to have an assigned parking spot in the lot at the property so it wouldn't be necessary to move a car or pay for parking - purely for convenience. That being said, the inside garage nearby is very reasonable and safe. We would highly recommend this property and plan to visit again in the future.
Best air BNB I’ve ever stayed in, would give 10 stars if available,!
The Icehouse was amazing! My daughter and friends of ours went to see Aerosmith at the MGM theater and wanted a cool place to stay, the whole experience was absolutely wonderful! Scott and Susan were wonderful hosts our accommodations were fabulous we had such a wonderful time we hated to even leave the house, wish we could’ve stayed longer. I’ve never been that far east before but this experience was so good that I definitely would love to go back and just spend time in Alexandria.
