Why Linda chose Capital

I enjoy hiking and nature which is why I chose this location. The close proximity to Washington DC and hiking from the front door and being in a woodsy setting offer the best of both worlds.

What makes this house unique

I have spared no expense in trying to offer as many special touches and amenities as possible. Many guests comment on the hot tub, the soft beds and bedding and the massage chair. The Sirius/XM is available from a keypad in all of the rooms as it is wired throughout. You will enjoy the neighborhood in all seasons. The fall foliage is striking, the spring flowers especially our azaleas are abundant and it is lush and green during summer.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This rental home is in a beautiful, peaceful, wooded area where we awoke to deer every morning. There was a Keurig and a regular coffeepot with a week-long supply of delicious Starbucks coffee beans and a grinder. We hit the hot tub each evening when we returned from touring Washington, DC, Virginia and Maryland and took turns using the fabulous full-body message (with heat) chair (just like the one you see at the Brookstone stores in airports). The kitchen is large and there's plenty of dishes and pots and pans. We didn't have a lot of time to cook, but our family of 12 always had breakfast together before we set off for the day. We had two rental vans and they parked well at the house. The driveway is steep, but it didn't bother our drivers after the first time getting up and down it. There is plenty of parking at the Silver Spring Metro station on weekends and it is free, but during the week, unless you get there at 5 am, you aren't going to get a parking spot until evening. It costs 70 cents an hour to park there and it is open 24/7. Uber was so inexpensive, we used that quite a bit. They got us to places on time--always. Metro is so easy to use within the DC/Arlington area. It can be expensive if you have a family because the charge is per person. A day pass runs about $14/person. Linda, the owner, is absolutely wonderful. We needed help with the bus situation one day. I called her cell phone and she gave us step-by-step directions. Several times while we were there, she texted to see if she could help in anyway. On the first day, when we arrived at the rental home, she had provided a huge bowl of various fresh fruits and chocolates. What a treat! This place felt like home. Silver Spring has everything you can possibly need. It has a large population, but appears to be a small town, so it isn't overwhelming to drive in. We recommend this rental. Important: When you google or mapquest using the rental address, make sure you are picking Silver Spring, MD not DC. For some reason, DC comes up as the default address when doing a search. We have rented numerous houses for family vacations, but never one that exceeded our wants and needs like this one. We have recommended this rental home to many of our friends already. BTW. If you have never taken the Moonlight Trolley Tour, that's a must. I have been to DC numerous times, but never saw it at night like that. It's about

Fantastic Hospitality and Customer Service!

  • 5 of 5

We chose this house because of the room it provided for our large party. It was so much more than that. The beds were comfortable. Everything was very clean. The neighborhood is quiet at night for good rest. Linda knows how to provide great hospitality. There were so many little touches here and there in the house that showed she cares about her visitors. We appreciated that. We had one issue come up that was out of her control. She responded immediately and went above and beyond to do everything she could to make us comfortable. This is the best VBRO homeowner I have ever had the pleasure to interact with.

Beautiful home; more than I expected. Plenty of room and "extra" amenities. Location is perfect.

  • 5 of 5

Would definitely stay again. Price and space was right for the number of people traveling in my group (5 adults, 2 children). Great amenities, including Xbox 360, and Wii for the kids. Internet and cable included. Only issues: Wish there were televisions in each bedroom, and pipes are kinda noisy. Neither would prevent me from staying again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review about your stay at Sligo Creek Manor. I am pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay, I enjoyed hosting you all. I am really sorry that the noise from the heating system turning on at night to be bothersome for those that stayed in the Slumber Party Room. I wish I could offer a silent solution. The heating/AC system is in the room next to the Slumber Party Room and I apologize that you found it to be noisy. I would enjoy welcoming you back if you visit the DC area in the future. Thanks again!

Perfect home for our family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 8 adults (our 80 - year old mother, sisters, nieces, nephew and spouse) spent 1 week visiting Washington D.C. We initially had a rough start with a different property owner of our original reservation, but VRBO was very accommodating arranging our new rental home with Linda, the property owner of Sligo Creek Manor in Silver Springs. Linda is the BEST!! She was very kind and was eager to help us prepare for our stay at such a short notice. The description of the property on VRBO is spot on. From the moment we arrived until the day we left, we felt like we were being pampered “at home”. This house is perfect for a family vacation/get-away. Enough rooms and bathrooms for everyone's privacy, and it's in a quiet, secluded neighborhood that is close to accessing anywhere you want to go. There are 2 bedrooms upstairs, 2 bedrooms on the main level and 1 large bedroom with 4 double beds. All of the beds were extremely comfortable and Linda has added some excellent touches with comforters, extra pillows, large closets and windows for a view of the grounds. The kitchen is, WOW. We were all envious of the kitchen. The utensils, the cookware, the plates, glasses and stemware were all matching sets. Linda graciously provided the names and locations of several restaurants and grocery stores located in Silver Springs if you do not want to drive into DC. She also provided a binder filled with different types of tourist attractions to see while we were in the D.C. area. This is an excellent rental property that absolutely matches the description provided on VRBO. Linda is fantastic to work with and if you are planning a trip to the area you will not be disappointed with this home. There is so much room, that no one stumbles over one another, and it's so private because the house sits high above the road. We would definitely stay here again! Thank you again Linda! As we say in Hawaiian: Mahalo Nui Loa! : )

Perfect fit for our family get together!

  • 5 of 5

Met my dad, sister and her family for a family vacation in DC. The house was amazing. Every family had their own floor. Kids had their own space. Beautiful area, parks, creek and even some deer. Spent our time seeing monuments and museums during the day, then relaxing at night away from the bustle of the city.
