When we open up our Cottage, we want our visitors to have a unique and memorable experience. If you have a good experience with us, you'll come back and you will also tell your friends about us!

Why the Owner Chose Alexandria:
Alexandria is FULL of history and conveniently located to downtown Washington, DC. We like the 'neighborhood' feel of Alexandria and the beautiful architecture, along with the convenience of the nearby King Street Metro and Alexandria Union Station.

Staying at The Cottage vs. a Hotel room. We offer the following: Kitchen Prepare gourmet meals or a Thanksgiving feast. The Cottage is fully equipped with all you need to prepare meals for families with small children and people with special dietary needs. Vacationing on a Budget?

Privacy No need to hang out the “ do not disturb ” sign. For a romantic getaway or a 'get away from it all.' YOU decide when you want to wake up. Luxurious Extras We supply shampoo, conditioner, cotton balls, Q-tips and so much more. Laundry Separate Laundry Room where you can wash, dry and fold. We even supply the detergent and dryer sheets. Convenience Walk to King Street Metro or stroll into Old Town, Alexandria A/C and Heating!
