Very comfortable contemporary guest cottage

  • 5 of 5

Neat, clean and well stocked, this cottage is a very comfortable home away from home. Bright and sunny with south facing windows and skylights. Very private location, tucked back at end of driveway, behind main house and within gated back yard.

A marvelous spot...

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for a week in April, 2017. The property consists of a wonderful cottage behind the owners home in Chevy Chase, Md, literally just across the street from the district. We had lived in this area in years past so couldn't have been happier with Chevy Chase. The area is a lovely suburb but is also most convenient to the city.

You will need a car if you stay here. There is ample free street parking and you're only a short drive (5 minutes) from the Friendship Heights station of Washington's metro and a fifteen minute ride to downtown. It is kind of a local sport for Washingtonians to grumble about their subway, but as New Yorkers, we can tell you folks in DC don't know how blessed they are to have such a great subway.

The cottage is spacious and well equipped. The kitchen has plenty of nice china, good glassware, every imaginable kitchen gadget, a refrigerator, dishwasher, and a washer-dryer. There is an island table good for eating and computer work. The living room has a fold-out couch and a comfy arm chair. Upstairs is a very large bedroom and bath (good shower but no tub), and there is ample storage and closet space. TV's both up and down. Wi-fi thoughout.

There is a lovely garden behind the cottage which the owners made available to us. We were fortunate to be there as their azalias were blossoming and a camelia tree was in bloom.

The owners were most accommodating offering to respond to any requests we might have. We didn't have any as the place was totally self-contained. Oh, and the owners have a wonderful puppy named Marco who will greet you with unbounded enthusiasm.

Impeccably designed cottage in close-in Chevy Chase

  • 5 of 5

My family and I (two adults and a 10-year-old boy) rented this wonderful cottage for a return visit to DC. We lived in the Washington area for years and recently relocated to Atlanta. For us, the place was perfectly located to get together with friends from Silver Spring and Takoma Park. We rented a car and street parking was easy. The owners are an architect and designer, so as you might imagine and can see from the photos, everything was beautifully curated and appointed. I was delighted by the Nespresso and conventional coffee maker, plus the compact but very high end kitchen. My son found the grounds of the house (almost a full acre in the city!) magical. Every day he found a different place to sit and read or play imaginary Nerf wars. For those considering downsizing to a "tiny house," this cottage is a master template of clever thinking and sleek aesthetics. I could totally see myself living here happily. And my son was ready to move in for good. Our hosts could not have been more welcoming and responsive.

Wonderful peaceful cottage!

  • 5 of 5

The owners are gracious and hospitable architects, and every aspect of this cottage reflects their thoughtful design. The downstairs is an open kitchen/living area; the upstairs is a large bedroom with a spacious bathroom/walk-in shower; and everything is in immaculate condition. The cottage is just a few steps from the main house where the owners live, and also adjacent to a charming brookside garden. The location is very peaceful--quite close to Rock Creek Park, and just a short drive to the shops at Chevy Chase Circle and the shopping center at Friendship Heights.

Beautiful Cottage with Lovely Garden

  • 5 of 5

I rented this gorgeous cottage for my parents while they visited (we live nearby). They could not have been more comfortable - the spacious cottage is surrounded by a lovely garden. It is quiet and serene. There are several outdoor spaces which we used (it was Spring), including a bbq grill. The kitchen was well-equipped, as was the whole house. The bathrooms, closets, bedroom were all great. It is a newly built cottage, beautifully furnished. I particularly loved the skylights over the bed to watch the stars at night. And lastly, Sabine and her husband were wonderful, gracious hosts - very helpful and accommodating.

Thank you for such a wonderful stay - my parents loved it!
