  • Perfect for our visit!

    "We stayed a week in Peyton's charming cottage in The Plains while we came to town to visit our families. The location was ideal for us, but even better, the cottage was a warm and welcoming place for us to return to every evening. Peyton has decorated it with every thoughtful detail in mind, and we loved her use of fabrics to create a delightful space (no surprise, given that she runs a home decorating shop next door!). It really felt like a home-away-from-home for us. The Plains is our favorite town in the area, with three outstanding restaurants just around the corner, though it was wonderful to have a kitchen in the cottage so we could prepare our own breakfast. We will look forward to returning!!"

  • Absolutely perfect!

    "My friend and I stayed here for a 4-day getaway and it was PERFECT! The house is exactly as pictured and really not difficult to find (just watch for the signs). We were greeted by the owners, Rick and Karen, who were so welcoming and made wonderful recommendations on restaurants and things to do and see. We went into Middleburg every day to shop and eat and explore, but because the house is so well-appointed, we still cooked several meals "at home." The house was clean, bright, and spacious, and the entire area felt very safe. I can't recommend The Hunt Box enough - stay here and you will not be disappointed!"

  • 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."

  • Relaxing Stay near Old Rag

    "Our family spent about ten days at Hazel Mt. Haven this summer. The house is spacious and airy, with high ceilings and lots of windows. We specially enjoyed relaxing on the large deck. The kitchen and bathrooms were well-equipped with lots of dishes, silverware and towels etc, which worked well for us as we had friends and relatives visit us during our stay. Even with the extra people the house did not seem crowded. The location is lovely, with views of Old Rag and the sounds of the Hazel River nearby. Dick and Judy were great hosts, very helpful and accommodating. We can highly recommend this house - it is a great getaway in Rappahannock County."
