                              VRBO Bear stayed here:

                              My husband and our two boys went to visit my family in the Washington, D.C. area. After extensive searching, we came across this lovely little house in Old Town Alexandria. We knew we loved the place as soon as we saw it. It has its own driveway, helpful because the area has limited parking available. The backyard/courtyard is currently under construction, but looks like it's going to be beautiful. The entrance has a mud room, with the other rooms all upstairs. In this mudroom, they have a cute little chalkboard that welcomes the family. I grew up in the area and the old house reminded me of my youth. It's very old and has a lot of the lovely original fixtures, including hardwood floors.

                              Going up the stairs, on the right is a wonderful parlor with a TV and chess table. It is warm and inviting, with an eclectic style. On the left is a hallway where the bedrooms and kitchen are located. The first room is the master room where we found fresh cut flowers, a charming personal touch. The next room is a wonderful kid room with two twin beds. The boys took an instant liking to the home, especially when they found home-made cookies on the bed! The last room is the kitchen and then the sunroom, which was the biggest hit!

                              The sun shines into the sunroom in the mornings, making it warm and inviting. It also has a lovely view of the homes of Old Town along with a view of the Potomac River. When we were in the house, we stayed primarily in the sunroom. It was a great area where we could connect as a family.

                              The house is in a perfect location. Within a short walking distance are tons of restaurants, shopping, the Potomac River and the wonderful Torpedo Factory, where you can see local artists at work. It’s a quick hop, skip and a jump to D.C. itself.

                              We were all pleased with the house and would definitely stay there again when we go back.
