Interaction with Guests
We live next door to the house and take our interaction cues from our guests. Some are more private than others and we respond accordingly. We appreciate at least meeting everyone who will be staying in the house and otherwise remain available as a resource if needed.
This Spring-Park home is in an urban and eclectic neighborhood at the nexus DC, Silver Spring and Takoma Park. Two Redline Metro stations are one-mile away--Takoma & Silver Spring. Our community is family oriented and quiet but with all the urban resources you need to easily shop, dine-out, see a movie and more, all within walking distance. We are also walking distance to a tranquil, woodsy park with a lovely hike/bike/jog trail along a creek.
We are a mile from 2 Metro stations and one-half block from a bus that will take you to both stations. The Takoma Station is in DC and cheaper if you're coming from that direction. Silver Spring is the first station in MD from DC and convenient to shops and restaurants. Also the neighborhood is very bike/walkable.

Gail and Danny are great hosts. The accomadations were as described, 20 minute walk from the airp course. They were more than willing to help make our stay as comfortable and easy as possible. They even picked us up, offered to drive us to the grocery store, provided laundry detergent, and a space heater when necessary. I will be recommended them to all my collegues!
I can't say enough good things about our month+ with Gail and Danny in this lovely abode. My wife and I stayed with them for the first Christmas with our baby daughter after the two of them came to join me in DC. The house is walking distance to downtown Silver Spring, which has everything you need, and it took me only 40 minutes to get work in downtown DC. The house also has a great fireplace, which was great to have considering this was the coldest winter in many years--and Danny was very generous with his extra firewood.
Both Gail and Danny did absolutely everything they could to make us all feel right at home. They were incredibly helpful and went above and beyond in every way. Among many other things, Gail gave a full orientation of the neighborhood, Danny helped me set up the Christmas tree, and Gail introduced us to other neighbors with children. Now that we've rented just a few blocks away, they've become amazing neighbors, as well!!
The house was perfect for us. Gail and Danny are absolutely wonderful. You'll love it!
Gail and Danny's place was perfect for our small family during a 2 week stay. The house was comfortably furnished, had lots of natural light, and all the fluffy towels and clean sheets and extra blankets that we needed. The kitchen was well stocked which made preparing meals for our toddler son and ourselves easy and enjoyable. They even had the pots, utensils and casserole dishes that I needed so I could still make my favorite dishes to bring to thanksgiving dinner. They had a huge backyard, great for our son to run around, and were a very short walk to downtown Silver Spring. They were helpful and friendly through our entire stay, and even helped us coordinate the delivery and pick up of a crib that we rented - they even put the bedding on! We were very happy with our home away from home for the holiday and would recommend others! Thanks Gail and Danny!
