Please note that this is an older home and while everything is functional, the house has quirks and several rooms have not been update recently (e.g., kitchen and bathrooms have older fixtures). If you are looking for perfect and modern, this might not be a good fit. If you are looking for character and quirky, this house is for you. Also, we normally live here full time and we have two dogs. While they won't be here when the space is rented out and we will have the house professionally cleaned, as many dog owners know you can never get 100% of dog hair out of the home. If you have sensitive allergies, this might not work for you.
Guests will be able to access everything in the house, including Catan and Cards Against Humanity!
We will be out of town but you can always text us during your stay.
Please no loud parties or gatherings, we are good friends with all our neighbors and we want to keep it that way. If you plan on having even a few folks over, please let us know so we can let our neighbors what to expect.
Please treat this home as if it were your home. Please always make sure both doors are locked (deadbolt only) when you leave.
Absolutely no smoking inside or outside. E-cigarettes/vaping okay.
Pets considered on a case by case basis with references. Additional deposit and cleaning fee may apply.
My husband and I are friendly responsible newlyweds who just graduated with our PhDs and moved to the DC area. We love both exploring new cities and relaxing in the countryside. We are dog lovers and have two well-trained rescue pups, a very lazy german shepherd mix who is a certified hospital therapy dog, and a smaller mix that looks like a fox. Neither have ever had an accident and both have excellent house manners. Most of the time we don't travel with them, but when we do we have them professionally groomed so they don't shed in your house. We are very conscientious people and try to leave every space at least as clean as when we arrive :) I don't have any reviews yet because my other family members have made airbnb reservations in the past, but I have references available on request! We are also LGBTQ allies.
