  • a week with the kids

    "This year I decided to step out and take my two kids 9 and 13 on a bit of a different adventure. we live in DC and usually go to the beach but I decided to go to the mountains this year. This little House was perfect for us.. It had all the little amenities to make it enjoyable a refrigerator with coffees and fresh milk and crème.. With owners help we found various adventuresome things to do, from hiking to riding...Mornings were spent relaxing and waiting for a little hummingbird to make his appearance. All in all exceeded expectations..."

  • Excellent Value for Families Seeking More Space in DC Area

    "My family (husband, wife, kids aged 9 and 12) just returned from this property two days ago. We couldn't wait to write a review - that tells you something about the quality of this apartment. We selected this property based on the other reviews - we found this apartment to be exactly as listed by the other reviewers. It was clean, well-appointed and very spacious for a family of four. A few comments to help you decide if this is the place for you: - We found the walk to the Metro station to be 15 - 20 minutes, depending on how briskly you walked and the number of red lights encountered. You can shorten this walk by taking the 9S Metro bus (stop is right outside the Concord's door) to a stop about 2 blocks from the Metro station. -We did not find a grocery store within walking distance. We had a car, so this wasn't a huge deal. One reviewer mentioned a Target that was about a 20 minute walk. We did pass by this Target on our drive out of town - my impression is that it's longer than that. -The fold-out bed in the living room is functional, but very lumpy. If it's important to have that third place to sleep (and the person would be bothered by feeling mattress coils) this might not be the best place for you. The rental agent Jackie Miller was extremely responsive and helpful, as were the onsite concierges at The Concord. We would absolutely rent this property again; it was everything we could hope for in a rental apartment."

  • Loved it!

    "Our family of 5, including kids ages 15, 13, and 10, stayed here for 4 nights on our spring break trip to DC. The cottage was charming and filled with quality furnishings and plenty of extra touches. Kitchen came with some basic spices, oil, etc. which is always nice. Jim and Lisa offered a campfire, Mt. Vernon passes ( saved us $100!), and a couple of bikes. Didn't have enough time to enjoy it all! The yard and neighborhood were beautiful and nice to run through, plus the bike trail was only a couple blocks away...great place to run along the Potomac! Our kids loved the cottage too and wished for more down time to just hang out there. Highly recommend!"
