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. 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 was an absolutely lovely house and very comfortable to be in. We had a large group of collaborative researchers staying and everyone felt like they had landed in the lap of luxury! We ended up holding our final day of meetings at the house and it was very relaxing and conducive to good conversations. I will definitely book this place again for future collaborative meetings!

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.

Love the Kitchen!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Sligo Creek Manor! Linda was so sweet and helpful. The house is immaculate and the kitchen is great. It's got all the most modern conveniences and the open concept allowed me to cook to my heart's content while still being able to watch the huge TV. My family loved the hot tub and being able to walk daily in the woods at the end of the block. We had no idea that there were beautiful woods so close to downtown DC! We will definitely return. Thanks again Linda!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write about your experience at Sligo Creek Manor John. I am happy to hear you made good use of the kitchen! It is surprising to have deer visiting regularly in the yard and to be in a nice wooded area for hiking. So happy you and your family enjoyed the neighborhood. You are welcome back anytime! Thank you for your business!

Lovely home. Comfortable accommodations.

  • 5 of 5

Lots of little perks and amenities to make your stay enjoyable and stress free. Would include for future rentals that there are several sets of long staircases that need to be navigated daily. I believe this to be a consideration for those older renters, who are not very agile.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review about your stay at Sligo Creek Manor and especially for offering tips for those that are less agile. I am pleased that you had a stress free experience! The home has 3 stories and while there are no stairs to enter on the first level, from level one a person will need to walk up a set of stairs to reach the main level with the kitchen and living room area. One can also choose to walk through the backyard and up 5 stairs to the porch to reach the main level. On the main level there are 2 bedrooms including the master suite. I hope that helps, I encourage anyone with challenges to please feel free to call so that I can explain any confusing details. I will provide a walk through video that will offer the opportunity to see in detail the layout of the home. Thanks again for your review!

Not Luxury, more rustic cabin chic

  • 3 of 5

Location is outstanding. Neighborhood is very scenic and abundant with lush greenery. The home space is very functional and spaciousness, however it needs refreshing. Carpeting is dirty and in general the furniture is tired. The dining chairs sag and the living room seating is not very comfortable. The front porch is a wonderful space and the hot tub a nice bonus. Very steep driveway and the steps from the street are difficult for someone with mobility issues. Photos are enhancing to the actual product.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review about your stay at Sligo Creek Manor. I am happy to hear that you enjoyed the convenience of the location, pretty neighborhood, spaciousness of the house and the hot tub. I have always received positive feedback and that the home is better than expected so I take your experience to heart and I am very sorry that it fell short of your expectations. To address your concerns new dining room chairs have been purchased and will arrive next week and slipcovers and the carpets have been cleaned. I want to reassure you that I have the carpets cleaned regularly as cleanliness and comfort are my top priorities. I feel it is important to mention that the photos are accurate and there is a video available to anyone who would like to view a walk through of the home to see exactly what to expect. Just search you tube "Sligo Creek Manor RosebudMarie" and look for the most recent version as I take new videos often to post. I appreciate you sharing your suggestions so that I am able to your concerns. Thanks again for your business and taking the time to write a review.

Great place to get away from the City!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this property. We enjoyed the location as it was easy to get in and out of DC using Uber or the Metro. The kitchen was fully stocked and there was a really nice table for the family to gather. The beds were very comfortable and the big family room downstairs was a good place for kids to hang out. It was a quiet neighborhood with lots of people walking dogs and children. The setting was beautiful and the front porch was one of our favorite places to hang out. The owner was very attentive and quick with responses to questions. Thank you so much for opening this home to us as it made our vacation to DC very special!
