Guestbook comments from the owner

“What a GREAT long weekend we had!! We came into town for the Marine Corps Marathon and from the very start, Helen took great care of us. We had 10 family members running and the house comfortably accommodated all of us. We were able to relax, cook large meals in the spacious kitchen and just enjoy. We were even able to play a game of baseball in the VERY large back yard. We plan to be back next year for sure!”

Beautiful retreat close to everything and the District

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Helen's home in suburban DC. Helen and Bob were so friendly and accommodating to ensure we had a wonderful stay.

We needed to be close to Quantico, VA, for a USMC OCS graduation; we were an easy 45-minute drive away. But we were also just a short drive to parking for the subway into the District.

Grocery stores and other retail are just minutes away, but in the yard or in the house you would never know it - it's quiet and peaceful 24 hours a day. And you're just a five-minute drive to the fabulous (free) NRA museum with an incredible collection of firearms.

The house is spacious, clean, and beautifully decorated. There are two big queen bedrooms with private bathrooms and a HUGE master BR and a 4th BR with daybed/trundle singles.

The kitchen has everything you would need to prepare any meal. The landscaped yard surrounds a great deck for hanging out in the evenings.

We will definitely look to rent this property again when we are in the DC area.

Owner was very accommodating and the house worked great.

  • 5 of 5

Our Youth Ministry needed a place to stay for our mission trip. The owner was very supportive and excellent to work with. The house was amazing and worked great for us. We had the guys in the basement and the girls on the second floor and used the main floor as a common area. The large yard was perfect for them to run off energy. The rooms were spacious and very nice. The teens talked about how nice the house was the whole way home. The two bathrooms on the second floor worked great for having girls that needed showers. We plan to come back next year for a week and work with the same church for a Mission Trip and will definitely be seeing if this house is available. Perfect for our size group, plenty of room.

Perfect family vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our family during our stay April 12-16, 2017. Open concept on the main level with tons of natural light made for a perfect place to congregate. Huge front and backyard - perfect for the 4 young boys. The owner was kind enough to leave bubbles for each as well as snacks! Nice touch. One of the best features was definitely the finished basement. It made for a perfect play/tv area for the kids which transitioned to their sleeping area at night while the adults could relax and socialize on the main level. There was also a bedroom and full bathroom on the basement level. The home accommodated a total of 5 adults and 4 children during our stay with plenty of room to spare, in fact one bedroom wasn't used at all. Bonus: within 5-10 minutes of the metro which we used everyday to travel into the city. Parking our own vehicles to tour monuments, museums, etc. would have been impossible! The home was outside of the main cities yet still close enough to get everywhere.

Charming comfortable home

  • 4 of 5

We used this home for a family reunion in June, and it was a perfect fit. Its just a minute or two of Route 66 with easy access to the nearby Vienna Metro, Dulles Airport, Udvar-Hazy Air and Space Museum, Fair Oaks Mall, Tyson's Corner and more and about 25 miles (30-60 minutes depending on traffic) from downtown Washington, DC.

The rooms were comfortable and clean as were the bathrooms. We cooked several meals there and had all the pots and pans, cooking sheets, flatware and drinkware that we needed. The yard is huge with a lovely deck and plenty of seating on the back to visit and or eat.

You'll feel right at home during your stay.
