We took our grandchildren to this lovely little cottage as it was convenient to all the historical sites (not to mention right on the C&O canal and the Potomac!). Although we are sure that the grandkids had a great time at the various historical sites, they seemed to enjoy running and playing in the open country more. The cottage is in a very quiet area with little or no traffic. There is plenty of room inside and the deck is wonderful! The landscaping is lovely and we wished we could have used the firepit for s'mores. The hot tub was a hit with the kids as well. The only drawback to the cottage was there was no washer/dryer or dishwasher. Especially the washer and dryer would have been really nice with the grandkids. The dishwashers we brought with us were handy and fun??We will definitely stay there again in the future.
