The space

The space has a cathedral ceiling with two sky lights - one has a one of a kind art glass piece covering it or it can be left open to see the sky while lying in bed. This is a unique quite large space with a refrigerator, microwave and Keurig. The vintage and antique pieces make it special.

Guest access

There is also a quite large deck just outside the sliding glass doors to a table, chairs and umbrella. There is also a dart board if you like to partake.

Interaction with guests

Bruce and Kathleen will be available always unless out of town, then a very dependable and knowledgeable individual will be on call.

We enjoyed our four night stay at Kathleen and Bruce's home. They have quite a collection of antiques which will keep guests entertained just by viewing them. Master room was spacious and comfortable. There was kitchen access downstairs and that was nice. We had a great deck right outside of our room which was big and unexpected. Kathleen kept in contact with us to sort out an issue and she was very attentive. Great hosts, welcoming b&b. Worth the cost.

I had a great week staying at Bruce and Kathleen's upstairs master. They define hospitality, great communication, concern for my comfort, and in general just fun people! The bed is to die for, the deck is beautiful, and all the required comforts are provided. It also provides a sense of being home which is an extra bonus for frequent travelers. Highly recommended!

Bruce and Kathleen's house was the perfect home-away-from-home during our home renovation, ten minutes away. The location is incredibly convenient, walking distance to Rockville Town Center's shops, restaurants, and movies, as well as to the Rockville Metro station (where you can hop on a train and be downtown in half an hour) and a short car ride to the Rockville Pike for more shopping and food. NIH is about twenty minutes' ride down the Pike. Rockville is the seat of Montgomery County, MD, and the house is also a short walk to the county offices and courts. The house itself is on a not-too-busy street and is full of charming knickknacks and artwork. Our spacious, private, and very comfortable master bedroom suite included an en-suite bath, a big-screen TV, and a deck. We had full use of the well-equipped kitchen, dining room, and living room on the main level. Washer and dryer, detergent and fabric softener provided, are in the basement and shared with other guests staying in the basement apartment. Parking is on the street with a permit. Bruce and Kathleen are very accommodating hosts. Kathleen went out of her way to help me when it came to extending our stay. They want to be told if the house is missing any conveniences, so they can correct those oversights (that's how we came to have a drying rack). It's also clear that they're very proud of this house and put a lot of care into keeping it in good condition. I would recommend them as hosts without reservation.

Bruce And Partner Kathleen User ProfileBruce And Partner Kathleen is a superhost.

Bruce and Kathleen are lifelong residents of Maryland and wants to share their home in Rockville, Maryland to others who want to enjoy Rockville and the Washington, DC metro area.
Firstly, Bruce is a lifelong bachelor, high school and college math educator, insurance broker and networker. He is a musician (guitar, harmonica, and Saxophone) and enjoys nothing more than entertaining others. His love of all music is a passion and his knowledge about music, lyrics, and memory of songs and singers is amazing. Bruce was a semi-pro soccer player and cannot get enough sports (professional and college) on TV or live. These are passions that Bruce cannot live without!! By the way, Bruce is one of the funniest and nicest person you could ever encounter. He has never met a stranger and loves his family immensely.
Kathleen is a retired Federal Government (Civil Servant) and worked as a Grants Management Officer for many, many years. She was widowed over 10 years ago and has one lovely daughter, fabulous son in law and three of the most amazing and beautiful granddaughters on earth (somewhat biased). She has also been an antique dealer and collected antique advertising, country/primitive furniture (painted), vintage kitchen pieces, coke machines, a 1953 Seeburg jukebox and antique jewelry for over 40 years. There is no need for a psychiatrist or psychologist because all that she requires is to jump in her 1976 Triumph TR6 that she has owned for over 20 years and take it for a spin and almost immediately, all her troubles are gone. It is that much fun.
We enjoy working in our homes in Montgomery County, Maryland which includes a home in Germantown, MD, decorating, gardening, movies, entertaining and having family and friends visit. We also enjoy the Atlantic Ocean (3 1/2 hours away) which is a real treat as well as the mountains (1 hour away).
We love traveling and have been to many resorts/countries in the US and Europe.
Our motto is "you can count on our word, because our word is our bond and means everything in life!"
We are also committed to making each of our guests stay at our home in Rockville a special one. We try very hard to be as attentive as possible to your needs, but not intrusive. We have a lovely home that in a convenient location, interesting, and quite comfortable as you can see in the listings.
Thank you for your consideration and hopefully you will make your reservation through Airbnb with Bruce and Kathleen.
