Additional information about rental rates

Fees:

  • Refundable Damage Deposit $400
  • Taxes Not included

Notes:

NOTE: VRBO's Rate System does not always price correctly. The reason booking is a bit more complicated is that I do not charge extra for cleaning, so the first 2 nights are "front loaded" to cover my cleaning time. Many people are reticent to pay for cleaning for a 2-night rental, and because I require a security deposit, I find that my guests invariably leave the place very tidy, per the terms of the Rental Agreement - so it ends up costing them less.

So... if you are requesting a 3-6 night rental, chances are the actual rates will be ending up lower than the quote.

See Rate Range (holiday rates will be slightly higher):

$350: 2 midweek nts (Mon-Thus)

$400: 2 weekend nts (Fri, Sat, Sun)

After a 2 night stay, each additional weekday night is $100; each additional weekend night is $150

3 nts: $450 - $550

4 nts: $550 - $650

5 nts: $650 - $750

6-7 nts: $800

1 wk: $800

2 wks: $1500

3wks: 2050

1 month $2500

Everything after this point is negotiable!

NOTE: Because I get some longer (1 month plus) rental requests (corporate/relocations), my advance booking policy is as follows:

1. Rentals less than 7 nights can only be booked a maximum of 60 days out.

2. Rentals less than 1 month can only be booked a maximum of 120 days out.


Owner's cancellation policy:

100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: I am an enthusiastic traveler and have been booking my extended family’s vacations online for many years. Before each trip, I spend countless hours researching unique and comfortable hideaways for us to inhabit – in part because I am an online travel junkie, but mostly because I believe that the quality of the accommodations is a huge contributor to the success of any vacation. It's so much easier exploring new worlds when one's family has a comfortable place to sleep, bathe, decompress, and plan the next day's adventures. And even more than I love exploring other parts of the planet, I love introducing and sharing Frederick (my part of the planet since 1974) with others. I knew from day one that Frederick County had a very special charm. To me, it has only gotten more charming (and considerably more diverse) in the past 37 years. Presently, Frederick has no downtown hotel and just two popular downtown B&B’s. I was surprised to discover that there is a dearth of short-term furnished properties or vacation homes available to rent in the downtown area – a huge omission, from my perspective, because Frederick City and Frederick County are wonderful places for extended visits. At a crossroads in my life, I decided that something needed to be done about this. Thus the birth of Frederick Vacation Rentals (d.b.a. FrederickVacationRentalsdotcom)

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Stay here and... - Walk downtown for coffee and bagels in the morning. - Sit in a Market Street sidewalk cafe (Cacique, Isabella's) and people watch. - In cold weather, sit INSIDE at a window seat table (Tasting Room, Olives, Firestones) and people watch. - Enjoy the downtown festivities and late night shopping on Frederick's First Saturdays (every month of the year!) - Explore dozens of wonderful restaurants and hundreds of interesting shops. - See a performance in Frederick's Theatre District (yes, we DO have one!) - Visit the Frederick Visitor's Center on East Street, see the 13 minute movie and find out how many fantastic things there are to do in Frederick City and County! - Visit the National Museum of Civil War Medicine on Patrick Street. - Take a leisurely walk or bike ride in Frederick's city-long linear park, Baker Park. - Take the Frederick Wine Tour. Visit one of our 3 microbreweries. Tour & Taste at the Flying Dog Brewery. - Take a Ghost Tour on a dark and stormy night (available every weekend from spring-fall). - Follow the Visitor's Center Treasure map through Frederick's historic downtown. - Look up the many special events going on in town on the City's Office of Special Events Website: the Festival of the Arts, Fourth of July, the In the Street Festival, Holidays events all December. - Attend the Great Frederick Fair in September and Frederick's two Oktoberfests in - you guessed it - October! - Tour the Delaplaine Art Museum and Frederick's many ecclectic art galleries. - Hear some live music at the Frederick Coffee House, Cafe Nola, Brewer's Alley, The Blueside Tavern,, Firestones, The Cellar Door, Cafe 611, - to name just a few of many venues. - Check out the Children's Museum at Rose Hill Manor, the Taney House, the Frederick Historical Society, the Hessian Barracks. - Read the Frederick Magazine and the Frederick Newspost - you won't BELIEVE how neat this area is - and you'll want to come back AGAIN & AGAIN!
