"My husband, 8 year old son and I loved our stay at the Cottage. After a few days in the Dupont Circle we were ready for a relaxing change. And the cottage did the trick. The neighborhood is adorable and safe. The cottage is impeccably clean. The kitchen has everything you need to cook a 5 course dinner. And there were 2 televisions, which was nice to give my son a break in his own space downstairs. The bed upstairs is super comfy and my son said the same for the high quality air mattress on the bottom floor. The first thing we did when we arrived was a load of laundry and sit on the beautiful patio with a glass of wine, definitely a luxury. While you will be in walking distance from the metro and the trolley for King Street we were happy we rented a car for this half of our trip. It appeared to be doable, but we were done. After spending days walking around DC we were ready for a break. Alexandria is lovely and we easily filled up a few days. The history is fascinating and great for children. Ghost tours, George Washingtons house, historic churches and cemeteries, apothecary museum, beautiful waterfront, art galleries in the the Torpedo Factory and restaurants galore.
Please take note, as Jack mentions the cottage is small. However it was the perfect size for my family of 3."
