About this listing
A private bedroom with a queen sized bed, large work area, ample storage and plenty of light.
It is on the basement level with a private bathroom, access to washer/dryer, downstairs living room and fireplace, internet and cable TV.
Stay in a newly renovated split foyer home with Eric, Tricia and our rescue pup Ruby. Our lives tend to revolve around art, theatre and music and you'll see this reflected in our home.
Our home is three bedrooms/two bath with an upstairs and downstairs living room (with fireplace). Enjoy your morning coffee at the kitchen table or in the morning sun on the back deck. Relax in the evening listening to music, watching tv or something from our random (eclectic?) DVD collection, or reading something from our large collection of books.
For guest staying less than 2 weeks, we'll provide fruit, granola bars, water and coffee in the morning to help you on your way. Trust us, we know it can be hard getting out the door. :-)
Interaction with Guests
We are very easy going and will match your level of interest in interaction. Eric is chatty and has lots of knowledge of the area and stories to share. Tricia is often bustling about with grad school, work and volunteer commitments.
We are respectful of your privacy and space.
This is a great location, very convenient area of College Park. Close to grocery/shopping/restaurants. We're on a quiet, safe street in the Hollywood neighborhood.
We are close to the National Archives, the USDA, NASA Goddard and the University of Maryland. By car there is easy access to Beltway, BW Parkway and I-95. Its 20 minutes via car to downtown DC and 25 minutes to Baltimore - traffic permitting of course (this is still DC). On street parking is available.
We are less than 1mile from Greenbelt Metro/MARC station, and a 5 minute walk (.3mi) to the bus stop (83 and 81 to Rhode Island Station).
Other Things to Note
Please send an inquiry prior to a reservation request.
No pets - Our Ruby is a lovable gal, unless you happen to be a dog, cat, squirrel, rabbit, bird hiding from the rain - you get the picture. She eventually plays well with other animals but can be domineering in the beginning so to avoid any conflicts please leave your furry friends at home.
Additional guests with advance notice only - Please no bringing home strangers, random hook-ups, long lost cousins, etc for the night. Our house is safe and comfy and we'd like to keep it that way.
Put food away - Ruby gets plenty of food but is always on the hunt for more. And though she may be small she can stretch halfway across the counter if she is inspired.
No smoking in the house.
No illegal drugs.
Ruby Rule #1 - She is always excited to see people. Our general rule when coming home is to ignore her fora few minutes to give her a chance to calm down. No touch, no talk, no eye contact until she is no longer actively seeking our attention. We would appreciate it if you followed the same guidelines. It can be hard to ignore her, she is awfully cute, but please help us with this.

Eric is an amazing host and I really enjoy staying in this wonderful house during my days in DC. It located near Prince George's courty where is not far from the greenbelt metro（about 15 min walk）. And the neibourhood is so peaceful and elegant that you feel it is the ideal life model. Eric prepared everything you may need for your stay there even fruits and coffee in the morning. The room is clean and tidy，you can even enjoy the whole floor by yourself.
Thanks so much！
Hi Tricia And Eric, We are very happy in Washington every day. Thank you for your perfect room! Buby is so cute!
Great experience with Tricia, Eric & Rubi!
They are very friendly and welcoming. The room and house is comfortable, clean and able to enjoy private bathroom. Good neighbourhood and felt safe coming back late in the night. Have to note that it would take around 15-20 min to reach the nearest metro station by foot.
I cannot say enough good things about our stay. Everything about the room was exactly as described. Very clean and bright. Tricia and Eric were welcoming as I hoped. The granola bars provided were fantastic and provided a great start to each day spent. If I ever find myself in the D.C. area again, This would be the first place I go. Thanks!
Tricia and Eric were the perfect hosts!
I am from the local area and was transitioning from one residence to another. During the week that I stayed with Tricia and Eric I was extremely busy with work, family, and other obligations. I didn't get to chat much with Tricia and Eric, but we greeted each other in passing :)
The accommodation were (email hidden)ce, comfy bed and a private bathroom on pretty much my own floor! What more could I ask for?
I had a great stay at this beautiful home in a very quiet neighborhood! Oh, and I would be remiss if I didn't mention Ruby who saw me off to work one morning and often greeted me when I returned in the evenings! :)
Thanks Tricia and Eric!

About the Host, Tricia And Eric
We are an easy-going couple with a friendly rescue pup.
Our knowledge of the DMV is expansive and we are always willing to give advice and suggestions on where to go, places to eat, etc. Eric has been in the area for 15 years and we're happy to assist whether it is tourism or relocation information you are looking for.
Tricia's a performer, grad student and arts administrator and Eric is a techie and designer. Tricia is from St. Thomas, Virgin Islands and works at the University of Maryland. Eric, a Vermont native, is a Production Coordinator at the Performing Arts Center at UMD.
When we're not at the theater - we enjoy eating out and being active. We both have bikes that we're willing to allow our guests to use and know great trails and outdoor activities in the area.
Our rescue pup Ruby is very special. She is not dog friendly - so we cannot accommodate anyone with pets but she LOVES people. So, be prepared for lots of puppy loving! She likes to lick - but she also stops when she is told 'NO'.
We respect your privacy and our home is clean, comfortable and quiet. But we can be social if you'd like to hang out. Tricia is known for an occasional impromptu dance party. We have several board games, a vast DVD collection, a playstation, wii console, cable TV and wireless internet!
