Please respect our property and our neighbors. Common courtesies and cordial interactions are expected.
This 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 film and more, many are within walking distance. We are also near 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 stop. While you can get by easily without a car we also offer free parking. The neighborhood is very bike/walkable and transit is nearby but there is a car rental office nearby as well as hourly carshares at the metro stations. You will find this a convenient location from which to see the sites, work or study.
Other things to note
We will need contact information for ALL adults who will be staying in the property for any length of time.
Be respectful of our community, neighbors and our guest home. Otherwise we prefer to not have to enforce "rules." Universal acts of responsibility, consideration and cooperation are key to a successful guest-home experience.

We have lived and raised our children in this eclectic part of the DC Metro area for 30+ years and will never discriminate against any person or group. We are self-employed, creative professionals and work from our home. Our B&B home and separate guesthouse are at the nexus of DC, Silver Spring, and Takoma Park Maryland.
We have enjoyed the acquaintances we've made in our 6+ years of hosting travelers and have over 100 positive reviews. Here are clips from some of our 5-star reviews: “Gail and Danny were absolutely GREAT! They were very helpful getting situated in the house. Gail was kind enough to pick me up from the metro station on the first day"…"The place is very conveniently located near the Silver Spring downtown, close to metro, restaurants, gyms, convenience stores"…."Danny and Gail were attentive while allowing us privacy and freedom to come and go as needed"…"We loved the casual and comfortable surroundings and the personalities of our hosts"…."My best [B&B] experience so far !!! This place is great, especially if you're an AIRP attendee ! :)" ..."This was truly a home away from home. If i ever go back to DC, I know where I'm heading." …"The house was lovely and exactly as listed, and the neighbourhood was safe, welcoming, and a short walk from anything you could possibly need"…"Their place was clean, cosy and comfortable. Plus, I had no trouble commuting into DC every day and I felt safe in the area around their house"…."The kitchen has a lot of room for cooking and it's always clean as well. It was actually a little sad to leave"…."This experience in [street name] avenue is one of those which we wont forget. The house is clean, cozy, and somehow unique and authentic"…."Better than expected: the house is big, cute, cosy, cleaned and you have everything you need. They are always trying to help you and are so respectful….” If you're new to the HomeStay concept, you will be "living with" others like you might connect with friends or family only possibly with more consideration. If you are looking for a cheap hotel we encourage you to consider our guest home listing, instead, where your group will have the entire house to yourselves.
We enjoy sailing, hiking, skiing and biking. Ask us about the trips we offer to Annapolis and sailing on the Chesapeake Bay. We're avid travelers and enjoy insights on other cultures, languages, cuisines and adventures.
Now that you know something about us, PLEASE give us the courtesy of sharing information about yourself, your group, and the purpose of your trip when contacting us about availability.
