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.

The space

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.

Guest access

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!

Interaction with guests

We try to greet each guest when they first come to our home. We are also accessible via Airbnb's Messenger or phone for any issues, or if you simply want good recommendations for things to do in town.

Jake and Kendra were awesome! From the very beginning when I requested to stay Jake answered immediately and said they would be happy to host us. Throughout the entire process they were so great with giving us all of the information we needed. They have through of everything from explaining what we needed to know about the apartment, to the best ways to get around and see the sights. They also were extremely considerate and seemed to have thought of everything. When we got there the apartment was fully equipped with anything we possibly could have needed from kitchen appliances to a first aid kit. The apartment was private, clean, and felt safe. I would definitely recommend Jake and Kendra to anyone looking to stay in this area. They were great hosts that allowed us to stay in their house and made it feel like a home. Thanks again! - Jenel

Secluded private sanctuary minutes from MGM National Harbor. Open studio style space with nice comfy queen size bed and additional futon. Large closet and plenty of storage for clothing either hanging or in one 3 drawer dresser. Iron and ironing board provided to keep you looking fresh while traveling. Bathroom was great for the value: stand up shower with excellent water pressure with no drainage issues. Kitchen fully stocked with plates, silverware and glasses. Full size fridge with freezer and electric stove. Pots and pans included to help keep food costs to a minimum. Would definitely stay here again and have already recommended it to my friends who are in the area often. The best part of this place is the outdoor life: many wildlife and scenic things to see just outside the door.

A beautiful place with a lot of wildlife (deer and birds) in the garden. Lots of space inside the appartment. Nearby the subway station. And above all, great hosts, lots of privacy and very smooth communication, quick response!

Thanks for having us. Your place is a hidden gem away from all the hustle and bustle of DC, but was close enough for us to get around and see the sights as well. Our two youngest sons really loved seeing all of the local animals and pond friends too. We would be happy to recommend your place to anyone looking for a great AirBnB stay in the DC area. Thanks again, Jonathan, Bethany, Noah, Liam and Angus.

Jake and Kendra have a very spacious, well-equipped apartment! We are a family of 5 and spent 6 nights. The sleeping spaces are comfortable and the kitchen had everything we needed for the basic meals we prepared. My kids enjoyed playing the board games in the evenings. The Metro station is very convenient, less than a 5 minute drive. We loved having a quiet space to come back to in the evening after a day of sightseeing! Jake and Kendra are fantastic hosts and great communicators. We will definitely stay here again, if we get the chance!

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.
