Guestbook comments from the manager

“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.

Perfect home base for a D.C. family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay here during Thanksgiving week. It was a great location to drive to the Northern Virginia attractions and close to the Metro for the days we went into D.C. The owner did a wonderful job accommodating us and helping out with recommendations. We had everything we needed here and were not pressed for space. The kids loved running around in the back yard even though it was chilly in the mornings. We cooked several of our own meals. We would stay here again if we come back!

Wonderful home in the northern Virginia area!

  • 5 of 5

We were in the northern Virginia area for our son's wedding and chose the Cottage on Walnut Hill for our stay. We were very close to the wedding venue but also conveniently located to any other shopping you could possibly need. We were so comfortable, had plenty of space and everything we needed, and were able to bring along our elderly dog who had just as much fun as we did. The home was so nice and clean and tastefully decorated . The owners met us on the day we arrived but had also taken the time to meet us prior to our stay when we were visiting in Virginia. I also had several phone conversations with the Ross's prior to our stay. They were so helpful and answered our questions concerning our stay and the surrounding area. I highly recommend the Cottage on Walnut Hill if your travels take you to the northern Virginia area. You will love the home and could not ask for anyone to be more accommodating than Helen and Bob. They welcomed us and provided a special touch with flower vases, champagne, muffins in the refrigerator, and a special message for the bride and groom. Wonderful stay!!!!

Exmore, VA

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.
