Absolutely exceeded all expectations! The guest area and the property are absolutely stunning. I don't think I've been this relaxed in years! Right on the water with beautiful views. The hosts were so kind and welcoming, making sure we had anything we needed and introducing us to the wildlife in the area. The last day a wonderful breakfast was made for us. I can't recommend enough...we will definitely be back!

Marguerite was the best! Made me feel welcome from the very second I walked in the door. Her family is super welcoming as well and made me breakfast and offered me snacks. The space is very tranquil and Marguerite spent the time talking with me to offer me advice and guidance on where to look for renting a semi- permanent location in the area. She's also hilarious. Added bonus!

Where to start in trying to describe how wonderful my stay was at Marguerite's home! The pictures and description honestly don't do it justice, her home and the view is even more amazing in person. I booked a night here for my boyfriend and I, he recently moved to Virginia and hasn't been able to come home. Marguerite made us feel like we were home, she was beyond welcoming and made us feel like we were staying at a family members house. The apartment was private and cozy, equipped with any kitchen supplies/utensils that one would need (we brought groceries and cooked a big dinner). Stores are close, less than 10 miles, if you need anything but honestly everything you need is there. Can't say enough about this place, my boyfriend and I will be talking about this weekend for a very long time, it was so much fun! Hoping to find an excuse to go back.

Marguerite's apartment is on a beautiful riverfront where you can see eagles and other wildlife (we even spotted a turtle!). It's very close to Mason Neck park where there is some nice hiking. Marguerite was a very kind host and offered delicious vegetarian (by request) egg muffins, potatoes, fresh squeezed juice, and yogurt to get us off to a good start in the morning. (There are not any stores or restaurants close by, so the breakfast turned out to be crucial.) The apartment is very spacious with a full kitchen, and the bed was comfortable. There was plenty of space for our toddler to play (and a huge walk-in closet / side room area for us to place our Pack and Play, which we brought).

The Willners were accommodating from the moment we arrived. They welcomed us into their home, Gave us a tour of the property and offered us use of anything we might need to make our stay more comfortable. Marguerite cooked us a fantastic breakfast and had a variety of snacks and drinks for us. It was like being home!

We had a lovely time with Marguerite. She is a warm and generous host and made us feel at home right from the start. Her property truly is a nature sanctuary and the views of the river can't be matched. As for her house, you'll be wowed from the moment you pull in the driveway. Wish we could have stayed longer!

Response from Marguerite:
Husband is back and we're working like crazy to fix the basement and everything else that went to the dogs (pun intended) while I was on vaca - UGH. :-) Basement should be back on line this week, but YOU can always have the master suit. Please keep in touch.... All the BEST, Marguerite

Marguerite was a fabulous host and the apartment and location was wonderful! We arrived late but Marguerite graciously greeted us and treated us with generosity and hospitality. The location can't be beaten, a little tranquil hideaway where you can watch wildlife and get away from it all. We were so happy to stay here. One thing to keep in mind is that the apartment where we stayed can be a little cool at night, but blankets and a space heater were there for us to use.
