About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bath Single family Home on 1/2 acre lot near the Nations Capital!

This pretty cottage is located in the heart of Northern Virginia. It is convenient to Dulles and Reagan National airports, as well as the major highways of the area including; Fairfax County Parkway, Capital Beltway, Routes I-66 and I-95.

In addition to the easy access to Washington DC there are many other sights to see in the area. This home will provide the comfort and relaxation you’ll need after a day of sightseeing, attending a local event or doing business. For the price of a hotel room, you get the comfort of an entire 3 bedroom and 2 bathroom house, (garage is not part of rental, it is used by owner).The kitchen is fully equipped, and you can cook and dine in as you like. There is a large driveway for parking, and shooting basketball hoops, as well as outdoor furniture, and gas grill for cooking out.

You will have a private and autonomous stay. Hosts are live nearby, and can be available to you, should you need anything during your visit to Northern Virginia.

This is a safe, private, beautiful setting. You won’t have to go far for some of the best dining, shopping and fun things to do in the area.

You will need a car however, but the metro is 10 minutes away and from there you can travel to the Washington, D.C., and other areas in the metropolitan D.C, Maryland and NoVA area.

Then entire house has been remodeled and updated. Enjoy this beautiful, clean and decorated American theme home.

SO many reasons it works

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently visited Fairfax where our daughter, her husband, children (ages 8, 6, and 4), and the family cat live. We cannot stay with them due to serious pet allergies. Because of that, I checked with the owner about whether pets had ever been in the house; she promptly reported back that there would be no triggers. She was 100% correct; I even noticed a Miele vacuum cleaner which is the top of the line for fighting allergy issues! [To VRBO and Home Away, “No Pets” means you cannot bring YOUR pets to the property; it does NOT mean the property is pet-free.]

Upon arriving in VA with a uHaul trailer we had pulled from Texas, we were DELIGHTED to see that the house is on a deep lot with a long driveway and so much black-topped parking, we did not have to hurry to drop it off. It was easy to turn the rig around in the ample, well-kept yard, and it stayed there two days without any problem whatsoever. Though the property faces a well-traveled road, we were secluded and yet, close to everything.

I didn’t even anticipate how blessed we were going to be by a single-story home! Almost all homes and attractions in the area involve either lots of stairs or steep climbs; our knees sighed in relief when we returned to the house each day. Along the same line, my husband who is quite tall chose the bathroom where a higher counter required less bending

On past visits, we have had to strictly limit the time we spent inside our daughter’s house and/or be confined to the deck area. Staying at a motel was not much better; entertaining three children and four adults in a hotel room is less than satisfactory. We have enjoyed one local bed and breakfast but in addition to its steep stairs, there are no areas available to us for being with our family.

It irritates me to pay a cleaning fee and then find a list of chores which must be done before leaving the property. Here, we were only asked to put the used towels in the laundry room.

At the Nation’s Capital Cottage, we knew we were not bothering anyone no matter how late we played Scrabble, etc. We felt safe because of ample automatic outside lighting. Everything we needed was there (including soft toilet paper!) as well as extras like a checkers game played on a rug on the floor, a very nice basketball goal, several portable oil filled heaters, a desk-top computer with super internet, etc. We will definitely be returning to this property!

Went DC to visit former Canadians who live in Haymarket. This wonderful cottage is located between DC and Haymarket, allowed for an awesome visit. It was clean, neat and tidy! Very well looked after! Excellent location close to airport, shopping and Metro. Highly recommended!

A wonderful place to relax and feel right at home!

  • 5 of 5

My husband I were coming from across the country and my parents from PA for a family event. My mom and I got to the house first, and all we could say was "This is just perfect!"

The house was very clean, well laid out and inviting. It was easy to get to and we loved the parking in the back so that it was very simple to bring everything in and out.

We would absolutely stay again and give it a bug thumbs up!

Excellent location, excellent rental

  • 5 of 5

Just a perfect place for a visit to the DC area. I can't say enough good about it and it will certainly be the first place I check for if I return to the DC area. Decorated wonderfully, quiet and has everything you would need. I was really appreciative to find shampoo/soap when we arrived. Not having to go back out that night and being able to jump in the shower after that drive was great. Convenient to Vienna metro.

EXCELLENT! You want to visit DC then this is the place to stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful home! It was clean, neat and tidy! Very well looked after! We did the tours of Washington and we were able to take the Metro as it is very close, plus the great thing was knowing we have a wonderful home waiting for us after a long day. Excellent WIFI, AC, the back yard and the basketball net were perfect for my son. Truly a home away from home. I really can't say enough, just thank you Jessica and we will be back next year!
