"My wife, daughter and I stayed at the Cottage. We wanted a nice getaway for the weekend to see the sights of DC and experience Old Town Alexandria. We had never tried staying at places other than a hotel. LUCKY US to have found 'The Cottage'. The Cottage offers more than a hotel, along with comfort and convenience. We were sold on the kitchen...a full kitchen and a beautiful walk-out patio. HIGHLY RECOMMEND THE COTTAGE! We will be back. Thanks, Jack"

"This property is located within 10 minutes of my mother's house. I took my two daughters and their families for a 9 day stay, so they could spend time with their grandmother/great-grandmother and enjoy all the wonderful activities the area has to offer. There were eight of us (4 adults and children aged 12, 6, 3 and 12 months). We were warmly welcomed when we arrived, found the house decorated for Christmas (just the right amount), and were able to settle in immediately. The kids were instantly delighted with the playroom. The sleeping arrangements worked out perfectly for all of us.
We celebrated Christmas and New Year's Eve there, plus a first birthday for the baby. We also were able to host a family reunion, some of the time at the rental and some of the time at my Mother's place. My mother, who is 95 and uses a walker, was able to get into the house with minimal effort. She joined us there about as often as we went to her home.
I'd recommend this rental to anyone who wants to spend time outdoors, enjoys the area, and/or is looking for a nice getaway that is still close to shopping and lots to do. The owners are very helpful and willing to assist whenever asked. Great people and great location!"

"My husband and two teenage daughters recently enjoyed our stay in this home. Not only was it well appointed but it was extremely clean with a well stocked linen closet. Nothing was overlooked including the scented candle! It was within an easy 15 walk to the Metro. We also used a local cab company and they arrived both times within 10 minutes. Everything was modern, tasteful and it worked! I would much rather stay in a home like this than a hotel room. I also appreciated how quiet it was. If our travels bring us back around the Washington area I would book this home again!"

"My third visit to the Play Garden did not disappoint. This place has something for everyone. You can spend the day lounging in the pool or just relaxing on the massive veranda overlooking the beautiful Shenandoah River. Those of the group who needed a more active stay, floated and kayaked down the river and hiked part of the historic Appalachian Trail. One of our days we ventured into Washington DC to sight see. It was an easy drive in and we were back with plenty of time to entertain guests with dinner on the porch.
Delightful stay filled with great memories."
