  • A great value for the price and for the DC area.

    "We selected the Cottage because we wanted to be near Old Town, Alexandria. The price was exceptional compared to local hotels. We also wanted the ability to make some of our own meals rather than eat out all the time. In terms of being a great value for the price, the Cottage is hard to beat. The description of the Cottage is very accurate and you should set your expectations accordingly. The Cottage is not luxurious, but it is clean, quiet, and has everything you need to be comfortable. It is fine for two people. The upstairs bedroom has enough space when the daybed is closed. The daybed is trundle style; once you pull it out to full king-size, it does take up most of the room, so just be prepared for that. Still, the bed itself is very comfortable. The adjoining bathroom is small but adequate, with a great shower and a window overlooking a nice yard. A winding staircase leads down to a fully equipped kitchen and a small table for two. The downstairs also offers access to the backyard. The property is well maintained. You have your own separate entrance and a parking space right outside the door, which is a real plus. Located in a lovely, quiet residential area, the Cottage is an enjoyable 10-minute walk through a nice neighborhood to reach King Street. We did it several times in the evenings and felt perfectly safe. You will be at the end of King Street, right near the Metro stop, which is the best way to get around DC. There is also a Metro transportation office next door to the Embassy Suites hotel across the street from the station. Here you can get day passes for the Metro, a good idea if you plan to make multiple stops around town. One of the best services offered by Alexandria is the free trolley that runs along King Street all the way to the waterfront. Hop on and off anytime until about 10 PM. It will save you a lot of walking. Needless to say, the shops and restaurants along King Street and close by are wonderful, and it is so much nicer to stay in this quaint village-like area rather than in downtown DC or other nearby cities. Here's a tip: If you're a Crate and Barrel fan, there is a Crate and Barrel outlet store not far from the King Street Metro. Jack is a gracious host. He leaves goodies for you in the refrigerator and provides lots of information about local sights, restaurants, etc. There are plenty of TV channels, as well as DVDs and books. The Cottage is a great cost-effective alternative to an expensive hotel room."

  • Excellent Getaway

    "This was the second annual weekend getaway for the group of mid-20 year old college buddies scattered throughout the state. This trip included a bachelor party twist. We spent most of our time out on the shooting range and enjoyed all the outdoor space the farm had to offer. The owners are welcoming and willing to allow us to have our space, all while being available to help with any request. Truly a remote location away from any sort of busyness that comes with every day life. This is a great spot for all ages and we will certainly be back in the future. Thanks again!"

  • Comfortable space that is convenient!

    "Thank you for letting us rent your condo for our vacation. The space was fantastic, well-maintained, and in a great location to readily access the Metro, bus lines, or skip out of town for day trips to various locations. Some outstanding restaurants are also just a short walk from this quiet and pleasant neighborhood."

  • Great Location

    "We came to town for a wedding and some site seeing. The house is adorable and was perfect for us. I was amazed that they provided so much including extra toilet paper, paper towels and coffee. The beds were very comfortable and the sheets just lovely. It had a nice little yard too. The neighborhood was safe and friendly. Anything we needed was close. I definitely recommend this place and I would stay here again."
