Joanne is a awesome host! And the house is beyond amazing. I took my Catering Team to DC for Wedding, and we choose this home because of the beautiful open kitchen & amenities. Everything you want or need is in this home. Very spacious and easy to get to DC, Virginia, or Maryland area from this home. And thanks so much for all the breakfast food!

My family stayed at Joanne's house during my wedding at Glen Echo. It worked beautifully for them—good family spaces and also lots of space to spread out. Joanne was welcoming and had bought some food for the weekend, which was really nice. The house was on the market when we reserved it, but Joanne was open and honest about it and promised to take care of us if she got an offer before my family got to town.

Seriously, look no further. As a highly discriminating, organized, neat-freak consumer, I am very hard to please. This is the 4th time we've stayed at Joanne's house and her house would be my only choice if the dates were available. Joanne' s house made us feel at home... I even felt more "at home" than in my own place! The house is very beautifully decorated, spacious and open. The high ceilings and abundant windows (which give a lot of good light) are a huge plus. We stayed during the summer and the central AC kept us very comfortable and cool. The neighborhood is very safe, peaceful and quiet. One of my favorite moments was waking up in the master bedroom and seeing the beautiful trees and sky. It will put a smile on your face! All the rooms in Joanne's house are nice and spacious. Her office is gorgeous and a real pleasure for those on a working vacation. There are also plenty of bathrooms -- very convenient since we were a group of 7 people. Joanne's water heater must be incredibly big because we always had plenty of hot water. The water pressure is fantastic! I always get first dibs on the master bedroom! It's one of the best rooms in the house! The walk-in closet is huge with lots of drawers, there is a lovely vanity table and an awesome bathroom! The shower stall is really big and comes with 2 shower heads! There is also lots of lighting that can be independently controlled in the master bathroom -- one over the shower stall, one over the sink and one over the bathtub. Also super helpful were the 2 bathrooms on the first floor - no waiting for someone to finish. Another seemingly small detail that I really appreciated were the many available electric outlets, especially in the kitchen and the kitchen island -- super important as the island served as "command central." I definitely enjoyed the kitchen a lot since I cooked for our group. The oven has 2 separately programmable racks. There are plenty of spices, food, cooking utensils and, very important, a dish washer! There's also a coffee maker and plenty of mugs, cups and dishes. Joanne's kitchen is a gourmet kitchen experience for sure! Our group also really loved the grill. When we ran out of propane, Joanne replaced it for us (even though she didn't have to). In the evening, our group would hang out on the porch and family room and watched the giant TV. The icing on the cake is Joanne herself. Not only is she a wonderful and kind woman, she is very organized. Everything you need to know about the house is in a tabbed binder on the microwave. Joanne also went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and comfortable. I really loved our experience at Joanne's house and even felt a little homesick when I returned home. ;o)

Wonderful host who met us at the house and stocked the kitchen full of groceries. Previous renters came two times during our stay to grab belongings but we were alerted about this prior to their arrival. Overall great experience in a beautiful neighborhood.

This is our 3rd stay at Joanne's house. It's like our home away from home! What makes it perfect is Joanne -- she's very kind and extremely accommodating. If this was a bed and breakfast, it would be my go-to place every summer.
