“Highly recommend and would stay again! I stayed at A Shore Thing for a long weekend during COVID. This place was the perfect getaway from DC. It was realist accessible and near several good restaurants and grocery stores. David was our primary contact. He was quick to respond and very friendly. To be honest, the pictures don’t do this place justice! The apartment is a perfect studio type space and everything appeared new. The bed was super comfy and being able to see the river from the bed was exceptional! The outdoor space is what makes this place well worth the value. They have several lunge chairs, patio seating with table, and a dock with benches. The sunset on one of the clear nights was awesome! We also had time in the hot tub which was perfect to take in the stars! They left red and white wine for us, along with muffins. Such a sweet touch!”

“Mad Calf Cottage is perfection! Lara and David are wonderful, thoughtful hosts. We spent the weekend there for my 40th birthday and it was so lovely. The cottage is exactly as pictured. It was stylish yet homey, comfortable, exceptionally clean and well appointed. It is clear that Lara and David took great care in not only decorating but also in the special touches throughout. Knowing it was my birthday, they left a bottle of prosecco on ice (in addition to snacks and chocolates) for us to enjoy upon our arrival which was a delightful surprise. Lara gave me detailed information on the area and advice on restaurants. Taking her up on her suggestion, we ate at Adrift on Friday night. It was so good! But the show stopper was our dinner at the Hope and Glory Inn. Delicious is an insufficient descriptor. It was a meal I will not soon forget! There's nothing like having a cozy place to relax after we went on our adventures in the area and Mad Calf Cottage was exactly what we needed. It couldn't have been better. We hope to be back soon!”

“We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Bird's Nest! Everything was clean and beautifully decorated. Tanya left us some homemade cookies that were to die for! Every detail was thought of to make our stay comfortable and inviting. The weather was not the greatest for most of the Trip, but my boys were still able to enjoy the water and fish from the dock. It's about a 15 minute drive into town with several great restaurants and local shops. Truly a hidden gem that we hope to visit again!”
