Our river view home is just off GW pkwy--the road to Mt Vernon, DC, Great Falls, Old Town, and more! Beautiful National Harbor is a ten-minute drive. Nature reserves abound. The house's lower floor will be all yours. Great comfort and fun for kids!

The space

This house is built for families to enjoy! We have a pool table, dart board, outdoor fire pit, tree house, tire swing, hammock, and gardens with room to explore, all on a quiet street!
Come enjoy the comfort and fun of our forested surroundings, a quiet respite after long-day adventures in DC.

Guest access

You will have the entire lower floor apartment to yourselves. It includes a private bedroom, private bathroom, and large carpeted bonus room with lots of space and one or two queen beds.
Feel free to use the kitchen as desired, as well as the pool table, the movie room, the living room, and all outdoor space.

Interaction with guests

We are excited to meet you! One of our motivations for listing our house is to encourage our children to learn about folks from other places.
That said, if you prefer your privacy you are welcome to come and go as you like.

Other things to note

This is a home that shares some of their living space with their guests. We found this arrangement to work well for us. We liked the option to prepare some meals in their home...most frequently breakfast. It worked well. They are very flexible in sharing their space. Our rooms were clean and quiet. We especially enjoyed getting to know each member of the family, including their 3 fine and well-behaved boys. The location is excellent for access to the Metro yellow line, to Mt. Vernon, to Great Falls National Park and the drive into DC.

It is a clean and comfortable house, and the kids are helpful and very friendly. A relatively short drive from there to DC. The bedroom we rented has a curtain instead of a door, so we had a couple of sound-related wake-up calls that were earlier than expected. One of the air mattresses had a small leak, but my kids were OK with it (they thought it made it fun). I didn't read carefully enough to see it's a shared kitchen which made for having to appropriately set mealtimes (we sometimes like to cook while travelling). All-in-all a good value, thanks!

This is a great place for kids and is very safe. Great running trail nearby. If you don't mind sharing common space like a kitchen and dining room with a family with young children, this is a great place to stay. We felt very comfortable and safe here. Chris and Holly were very good communicators.

Chris and Holly are really nice guys who are very friendly and helpful to us. Their kids are very hospitable! The place is very clean and the location is very close to downtown, very easy to drive around. We spent a great time during our stays!

Where to begin? The house was beautiful! The views out the windows were awesome! The warmth and friendliness inside the home were indescribable! This was my family's first Airbnb experience. I'm happy to say that, thanks to Holly and Chris, we will be using Airbnb for all our future traveling. If you are going to be in the Washington D.C. area, I would highly recommend you stay with Chris and Holly!

My best man, his wife and 16-month daughter stayed with Holly, Chris and their family for the week prior to my wedding. Holly and Chris are such fantastic hosts and they went above and beyond to make the stay perfect. I won't hesitate to recommend others pick this home for their next vacation.
