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

Your own PRIVATE ENTRANCE ....

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

Perfect home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was a great place to stay for our family vacation. The cottage is in a great neighborhood and is within walking distance of two metro stations. When we first arrived to the cottage there were groceries in the refrigerator, saving us a trip to the store on that first day. Jack then surprised us with homemade cookies a couple of days into our stay, which were so yummy!! We definitely recommend the cottage and will stay there again if we are in the area (and it's available).

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.

Lovely cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was very cozy and comfortable. I usually pack everything but the kitchen sink and I found that I did not need to do so. Everything we needed was there and a lot of thought had been put into using the space well. We loved having the BBQ grill and the yard. The location was beautiful and extremely safe. Thanks Jack for a wonderful stay.

Great place in a wonderful location.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was very quaint in a quiet, safe neighborhood with adequate parking space. The place was clean and had everything necessary to make our stay comfortable. Jack made sure to check in with us prior to our visit to finalize arrangements and texted us when we were there to make sure we knew how to get ahold of him should we need anything.

Alexandria has much to offer in shopping, dining, and just enjoying a walk downtown. We highly recommend this cottage in a fun city!
