About Jack

We have been opening up our Cottage from time to time and have enjoyed meeting so many nice people. When we open up our Cottage, we want our visitors to have a unique and memorable experience. If you have a good experience with us, you'll come back and you will also tell your friends about us!

Jack purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Jack chose Alexandria

Alexandria is FULL of history and conveniently located to downtown Washington, DC. We like the 'neighborhood' feel of Alexandria and the beautiful architecture, along with the convenience of the nearby King Street Metro and Alexandria Union Station.

What makes this cottage unique

Staying at The Cottage vs. a Hotel room. We offer the following:

Kitchen

Prepare gourmet meals or a Thanksgiving feast. The Cottage is fully equipped with all you need to prepare meals for families with small children and people with special dietary needs. Vacationing on a Budget? Eating at home leaves more money for shopping and area attractions.

Space

The Cottage allows you to relax in private (indoors or out). Enjoy the beautifully landscaped Patio with Weber Gas Grill.

Privacy

Your own PRIVATE ENTRANCE ....

No need to hang out the “ do not disturb ” sign. For a romantic getaway or a 'get away from it all.' YOU decide when you want to wake up.

Luxurious Extras

We supply shampoo, conditioner, cotton balls, Q-tips and so much more.

Laundry

Separate Laundry Room where you can wash, dry and fold. We even supply the detergent and dryer sheets.

Convenience

Walk to King Street Metro or stroll into Old Town, Alexandria

A/C and Heating!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Jack, Donna and I want to thank you for all the kindness and hospitality you showed us on our recent trip to Washington DC. Your cottage is a wonderful place to say and the best value we've found in temporary accommodations in the DC area...ever. We have traveled the US extensively throughout our careers and prefer vacation rentals to hotel accommodations. We've never experienced as warm, comfortable and well appointed space as your cottage. We actually looked forward to returning each night and preparing meals in the gourmet kitchen. The Alexandria location was convenient for travel up to DC and Maryland and down to Fairfax and Springfield for business meetings. BTW, Old town Alexandria is a great place for shopping and entertainment as well. We encourage visitors spend some time on King and Washington Streets to really get a feel for Alexandria. Be sure to visit the cool art shops at the Torpedo factory!



Thank you for everything! The cottage is so nice, we hope that it will be available for our next trip to the DC area.



Sincerely,

Dale Dimmick

Perfect home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was a great place to stay for our family vacation. The cottage is in a great neighborhood and is within walking distance of two metro stations. When we first arrived to the cottage there were groceries in the refrigerator, saving us a trip to the store on that first day. Jack then surprised us with homemade cookies a couple of days into our stay, which were so yummy!! We definitely recommend the cottage and will stay there again if we are in the area (and it's available).

Love This Place

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to stay. Jack & Nyla are wonderful hosts and their cottage has everything I needed for a comfortable stay. I guess the greatest thing that can be said in a review is that I plan on staying there again in the not too distance future.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We ENJOYED having you and your lovely family stay at the Cottage. It is always a pleasure to see a small family like yours, using the Grill and having dinner on the Patio. Both you and your wife were a pleasure. Kudos to both of you for raising to lovely, well-mannered children. Please visit the Cottage again.

Great place in a wonderful location.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was very quaint in a quiet, safe neighborhood with adequate parking space. The place was clean and had everything necessary to make our stay comfortable. Jack made sure to check in with us prior to our visit to finalize arrangements and texted us when we were there to make sure we knew how to get ahold of him should we need anything.

Alexandria has much to offer in shopping, dining, and just enjoying a walk downtown. We highly recommend this cottage in a fun city!

LOCATION/NEIGHBORHOOD/VALUE

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this cottage for four weeks. The location was within 15 minutes of where ever we wanted to go. Very quite, nice neighborhood. Jack was an excellent host. When we needed supplies replaced, he was right there. Jack's dog, Nyla, was a joy. When we were on the patio, she joined us. Jack gave us cupcakes, made brownies and on Mother's Day, he gave me roses from the garden and home baked cookies! We had plenty of hot water and the heater and air conditioning served us well. The full kitchen was adequately stocked for preparing whatever we needed to. The bed was so comfortable. We got a good nights sleep every night. If we are ever back in the area, we will DEFINITELY stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for the nice review. Nice people deserve nice treatment. If only all of my long-term guests were like you and your husband! I really appreciated the way we communicated back and forth. When I host, I want ALL of my guests to feel WELCOMED and to know that I am here to make sure they have a pleasant stay. Again, THANK YOU and I look forward to your return. Sincerely, Jack

Cozy and convenient

  • 5 of 5

The Cottage is cozy (bedroom and bathroom upstairs, kitchen and eating area downstairs) and in a nice neighborhood, very convenient to Old Town, Del Ray and Metro stations. Jack is very friendly and responsive; he immediately resolved a couple of issues that arose during our 2 1/2 week stay and checked back to be sure that we were satisfied. Anyone with mobility issues should be aware that the stairs are narrow and steep (this is an older house) and make a 90 degree turn at the bottom. Overall this is a very nice value and would have been nicer had the weather allowed us to use the patio area outside.

Owner's Response: It was a PLEASURE to host Judith and her husband. They were very 'communicative', which allowed me to host them even better. Very quiet; friendly; and CLEAN people. I WELCOME them back to the Cottage. Thanks, Judith and Allen.
