Quiet, residential neighborhood, short walk to downtown Takoma Park. 13 minutes walk to metro to DC. Large, 4 bedroom, family home that is comfortable and tastefully decorated. Price reflects discount for caring for plants while there.

The space

This is our family's home while we're on vacation. The house is complete with whatever you would need to cook, etc. and you're welcome to use our spices, oils in small quantities, and full range of kitchen equipment, etc. while you're here. We'll have fresh sheets and towels for you and hope you'll find everything comfortable. You're also welcome to use our washer, dryer and laundry detergent. We also have lots of toys and bikes for boys (one for 7-9ish and one for 10-13ish). We clean the house top to bottom and declutter it for every visitor but keep in mind it's an older house and usually occupied by a family of 4 so it won't feel like a vacation rental. We'll leave some space in the fridge for you and some space for you in the closets but some of our stuff will be there as well. Please note that the 4th bedroom is set up now with a loveseat and TV but we have a full size mattress we can put on the floor to make it a bedroom.

Guest access

You can access anything that isn't marked off limits. This includes all 4 bedrooms, the basement with toys and couchbed, laundry room, back yard with tables and chairs.

Interaction with guests

We will be out of town so you'll have the place completely to yourself. We'll be accessible by email for any advice, concerns. Check-in is 4 p.m. and check-out is noon, unless arranged otherwise with host.

Other things to note

In the spring/summer you'll need to water our vegetables in containers out back and in spring we may have seedlings in the house you'll need to water and turn lights on and off. Guests staying longer may need to water our indoor plants. Our rates reflect cost of doing these things.

We have had a problem with ants (only in warmer months) and have put traps out everywhere, but some still roam the house randomly in search of food when it's warm out, so we can't guarantee you won't find one on you at some point. But they're small, black, don't bite and are not congregating in any one place.

Lindsey was excellent host. The house was lovely and wonderful. The price is incredibly good, I've been very satisfied and recommend everyone to deal with Lindsey.

Great place to stay, felt like home, close enough to the Metro to walk to as well as to the village. A very comfortable place to stay that felt like home. There was plenty of room for the five of us and my Grandson enjoyed playing in the basement Lindsay is a great hostess with excellent communication.

Great price, lots of beds. My only complaint was no outlets in the bathrooms. Made it a bit tough to get everyone ready in the mornings because of an outlet shortage but small inconvenience.

Response from Lindsey:
I wished you'd asked - there is actually a hidden outlet up on the light in the downstairs bathroom.

Good accommodation to spend a large WE in family (6p) in Washington , interesting living room and comfortable bedrooms and beds, all commodities, ( including the exterior part that we have but tried due to winter weather, but )... Quiet neighborhood , easy to walk to metro station ( bring scooters for your kids!). Lindsey even left some nice muffins for us ;-)

This is a much loved older home that has many beds! Close(ish) to the Metro, we walked there but chose to Uber back home. It is a safe neighborhood, but we chose not to navigate it late at night.
