Another nice weekend getaway
2nd time renter here and would love to come back for a third. The riverside cottage certainly has its charm and interesting bit of local history. Pomonkey creek is a great paddle for nature lovers and fisherman. There is an abundance of wildlife - ospreys, bald eagles, herons and excellent angling opportunities. Thanks for a great vacation!
beautiful and relaxing spot in nature
We loved our week at this property!!!!!! Clean, neat, super well stocked. Quiet with beautiful views of river, stream, marsh, woods. Birds of all variety, deer, fish, bullfrogs, tree frogs, lightening bugs. Local history to explore. Great breakfast and lunch at the local Lunch Box Diner. Easy trip to Alexandria in 35 minutes. John was the perfect host. Can't say enough good things about this property. We will be back!!! Thank you John!!!
Sometimes we have guests who reveal another way to celebrate this unique sanctuary! There is much gratitude here for Cindy & BJ and their family!
This was our 4th stay and can’t wait to come back. The fishing was awesome and got our first snakehead. It is truly a beautiful property with much to see close by. Many thanks!!!
We had three days of relaxation , exploration, and adventure! The water views are remarkable! The easy going nature of our hosts made this a worry-free getaway! A terrific place for families to build memories! Thank you!! We will be back!
Great location, hosts, and amenities.
We had a great time here. The canoes and kayaks are in good shape and are quality boats, the house had everything we needed. The kitchen is very well stocked with cookware, and the hosts were great as well. The WiFi worked fine for us. The location is absolutely perfect. We saw a ton of birds on the creek, and even took a short paddle on the Potomac. It's a great spot to take kids-there's a ton to do, short paddles are ok because you're already on the water, and the kids will sleep well after a busy day. We hope to make it back here soon!
We are always thrilled when our location is a perfect match! You guys are the guests we hope will find us.
We loved this cottage on the Potomac, it was so peaceful and had everything we needed. The beds are very comfortable! The treehouse and trails on the property were a dream for my 8 year old son. He cried when we had to leave because he was going to miss it. The drive to the Metro was easy and we took day trips into DC. Our only regret is that we didn’t have a longer amount of time to spend at the house. The view of the river was wonderful. We also didn’t have time to use the kayaks, which disappointed my kids. We hope to come back again. John and Carrie were nice to visit with and answered all of our questions!
Your son is not the first kid to cry at departure time. We are always grateful for our guests that are moved by the location. After 15 years, we still wake up thinking we are on vacation.
Come back soon!
