About Debbie

We are Realtors in Maryland and also Virginia and rent out our two beach properties in Ocean City MD and thought people might be interested in renting our home which we think is a 'country home' although we are close to everything we are tucked back in a country setting. We thought our home would be perfect for family reunions or people coming in town for a wedding. We love to travel and would gladly take the opportunity to travel somewhere while our house was rented.

Debbie purchased this house in 2001

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for lettine our family stay in your beautiful home. We had a family reunion consisting of 12 people. 9 adults and 3 children. This home more than suprassed our needs and brough us closer together. We enjoyed the beauty of theis town, espeially coming from the concrete cities of Houston and Dallas. We treated this house with utmost respect and truly appreciated the surrounding areas each day we were here. We fed the horses, walked the path, and enjoyed the serenity of the pond. We had 3 generations of families which this house successfully fulfilleed in every way. Thank you, thank you, Thanks you, and once again for this wonderful home and helping our family come together Sincerely,

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Several members of my extended family decided we were interested in a vacation to Washington DC and Gettysburg. We have rented houses before because we love to all be under one roof and be able to make meals together. This house in Damascus was between both tourist sites and didn't disappoint. It was comfortable and convenient for everything we did. Our ages ranged from 78 to 4 and the accommodations worked for all of us. There were two things that could have made it better. A full bathroom on the first floor and a hand rail on the front porch steps. The horse barn and hot tub were a nice touch! The beds were very comfortable and even the pillows were nice! The kitchen has everything you'd ever need and more.

Wonderful, Refreshing Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5

Our large family stayed comfortably with family friends, and we were able to relax, even during a busy wedding weekend! We enjoyed the hot-tub, watching a movie and a Texas A&M football game in the theater. The popcorn maker was fun for the kids! How helpful to have a high chair and a portacrib for our young grandson! The house offered activities for every age to enjoy. Three different porches offer a beautiful view. The kitchen was a spacious gathering place. The owner was wonderful to work with, so gracious and friendly. I hope we get to come back and create more family memories here.

Amazing Place for a Group Getaway

  • 5 of 5

If you want a place where you can have great times with a large family or group, this is it. The kitchen is excellent and spacious and allows for cooking large meals for big groups, and there are plenty of comfortable places in the house to hang out, watch a movie, or play games. One of the highlights is the theatre, which feels like a real one. We also enjoyed outside of the house with a great front yard for football, a small basketball court, and a peaceful back porch. Highly recommended for any large reunion, getaway, or family vacation.

Damascus beauty

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed in this property from the 28th of Dec. to Jan. 1st and it was the perfect getaway. We had a family reunion of 18 people and it was perfect. The house was so spacious and beautiful. We when hiking in the wooded area behind the house, and bowling and skiing, we even visited Gettysburg. The movie theater was a big hit with kids.

Exactly what we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5

My group and I recently stayed here for a weekend and loved it! There were 10 of us and it slept all of us comfortably. The house is amazing as it comes with a hot tub, theater room, and full kitchen with a huge island that sat all of us! The owners were extremely friendly and hospitable. The location was great as it was secluded and private but close to major cities and local restaurants! I wouldn't hesitate to come back here! My groups thanks you guys for a great time!
