  • Wonderful house for the family

    "I needed a place not only for my family but for my extended family. A Hotel was out of the question since we were staying just over one week. We were gathering for a family wedding and I couldn't have been happier with the location and comfort of the house. Walking distance to the Metro and just a short drive to DC. The convenience of making our own meals and being able to feel comfortable in a home is awesome. This is something I will look to do in the future. The owners were very gracious a a pleasure to work with. Thanks for opening your home to my family."

  • LOVE THE COTTAGE. VERY CHARMING!

    "My wife and fiance loved the warmth and coziness of the Cottage. The neighborhood is definitely upper-class and well-maintained. This is a wonderful 'ROMANTIC' place for two. The convenience of stores; metro and having mostly everything very close is a BIG PLUS! The owner takes great 'care' in maintaining the Cottage (inside and out). CLEAN, CLEAN, CLEAN! The downstairs kitchen and outside beautiful patio, is a perfect way to begin your day with coffee and a meal before heading out to DC for sightseeing. We HIGHLY recommend the Cottage and we will return!"

  • Home Away From Home

    "Staying at the Hunt Box was perfect for our family of 4. The house was clean, extremely well-equipped, tastefully decorated, and in a beautiful pastoral location surrounded by gardens, fields, and horses, donkeys, cows, even a goat. Our boys loved the farm and the animals. We loved the quiet and the comfort the house provided. Karen really did think of everything and made us feel welcome and at home. She left us a beautiful welcome note and a gift bag filled with yummy goodies. The refrigerator was also stocked with milk, eggs, juice, and bread so we had everything we needed for breakfast in the morning. I would highly recommend this house to anyone."
