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

Great place to gather with friends

  • 5 of 5

We are a group of 5 couples who have been friends for almost 50 years! We live far from each other, but once a year, we choose a destination and enjoy a vacation together. This year we chose Washington DC and this property did not disappoint! We all enjoyed traveling into DC for the museums and monuments during the day, but most evenings we ate together in the cozy dining area or out on the picnic table, while we relived the "stories" of our past. The owner, Linda, was the BEST! She reached out to us several times to make sure we were comfortable, and enjoying ourselves. We had a couple of small concerns, to which she instantly responded. The kitchen was well stocked, and made food preparation easy. The "toys" (hot tub, remote control bidet, massage chair) were a hoot. We all slept well in this quiet neighborhood, and many of us enjoyed the walking trails just down the street. Great stay at great property!!

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.

Great home in DC!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Linda's beautiful home. Linda was easy to work with and very helpful with suggestions. Plenty of room to spread out as well as gather together. We were there a week and were not ready to leave! We used Uber to travel to the National Mall area and it was a very easy and simple way to get around. We highly recommend this property!

I appreciate you writing about your experience with Uber and that it was a good way for you to travel into the downtown area. I am finding more and more of us are opting for Uber and bypassing the metro. Thank you for your thoughtful communication during your stay. You are welcome anytime!

Loved Sligo Creek Manor

  • 5 of 5

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. It was so clean, and the owner is so nice and accessible and accommodating.

The fresh flowers and fruit were so welcome after a long flight in to MD. It's a very relaxing atmosphere.

We used the hot tub, of course! Perfect on a winter night(s).

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!
