Stay in our in-law suite and enjoy the rustic scenery and local wildlife! Our place is a mile and a half from the Branch Avenue Metro - an easy walk, quick drive, or cheap Uber ride - and located right off I-495/Capital Beltway. Visit DC without dealing with the noise and crowds, or escape DC without traveling too far for a nice weekend retreat by a pond.
For your traveling or vacation needs, here is a studio apartment all to yourselves! As you can see from the pictures, there is an open, light atmosphere which will make you feel comfortable and immediately at home in the rustic environment.
The space is furnished with a queen size bed and a futon where one or two additional people could comfortably sleep. We have an additional, very comfortable couch as well that can fit another guest. We also can provide a Coleman cot (it fits one small person or a child) or an air mattress if separate/different beds are preferred.
There's a Roku TV with linked Netflix, HBO Now, Hulu accounts, Pandora Radio, and many other channels, for when you want to relax, and some family-friendly board games provided.
The kitchen has pots, pans, dinnerware, cooking essentials, and of course, coffee is provided! We have a card table and four folding chairs as well for when you're ready to eat, and they're easy to fold up and store out of the way if you want more space. Our backyard has a comfortable bench to view the pond, which often has ducks, geese, muskrats, and other animals swimming around. Its perfect to enjoy a quiet afternoon or a dinner outdoors while the weather is nice.
We provide free wi-fi, guidebooks and a map for while you're in the city. We have heaters if the temperature drops and a window air-conditioning unit so you'll have no trouble staying cool.
The washer/dryer is located in the basement of the main house. If you do end up needing to do a load of laundry, please feel free to contact us and we can arrange for you to have access to our machines as soon as we're able.
For guest with longer stays, or who just want to keep things tidy, we have a roomba available upon request to help with the sweeping.
You have access to the whole in-law suite of our house, a large driveway, and our back yard, including a great view of our pond!

After meeting each other abroad while doing Peace Corps, we moved to DC several years ago, and then relocated out to the 'burbs'. Having totally fallen in love with the city and the surrounding neighborhoods, we are excited to help you discover the area too by hosting you at one of our great Airbnb homes and enjoying our exciting, diverse, and always surprising city. We enjoy hiking, bike rides, craft beer, sci-fi geekery, and photography.
