About this listing
**PLEASE don't send a request unless you have a car. Public transportation is available, though not ideal - 25 min walk to bus stop, then 40 min bus ride to Addison Road Metro station. Bus runs M - F, 6 am - 7 pm only. No weekends or holidays.
A nicely appointed room with a twin bed and lots of sunshine awaits you. This 3 bedroom townhouse backs to the woods, where you'll see the occasional wildlife. Your shared guest bathroom is right outside the room.
In the neighborhood there's a swimming pool, basketball and tennis courts, plenty of walking trails around a lake and through the woods. An outside deck and separate patio invite a place to dine right next to nature. The gas fireplace invites relaxation after a long day or on cold nights. I have a small Yorkshire terrier who follows me around the house and stays out of the guests rooms. My house is your house. It is clean, smoke free and located in a safe, quiet residential area.
For mapping purposes, I'm at the intersection of Fenway Ln and Brown Station Rd in Upper Marlboro,MD:

You'll receive a bedroom door key which is optional for you to use (encouraged if the other bedroom is also occupied). I also have a copy to enter in case of emergency or to service the room, in which case I'd notify you in advance.
Interaction with Guests
I'm a hands-off host as I like to provide guests with their privacy. I am always reachable for questions about the house or advice about the area. Via text message is the best way.
Please don't send a request unless you'll have a car to drive during your visit. My area is rural, so public transportation very infrequent. The bus stops at 7p on weekdays and does not run on weekends.
I provide free on-street and driveway parking for your vehicle in a very safe neighborhood.
I have white carpet, so I try to take my shoes off and leave them in the downstairs closet. I'd appreciate if you would also - you're free to leave them in the closet or to carry them up to your room.
No unregistered guests permitted at anytime.
Non-smokers only, please.
Quiet hours after 10p. I have two Airbnb listings (https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/831759), so please be respectful of the other guest's sleep schedule.
While utilities are included in your stay, please be respectful and don't leave lights or water on when not in use, wash only partial loads of laundry, or leave windows open when AC is on.
Other than that, I welcome you! Feel free to let me know how I can make your stay as comfortable as possible. I can be around as frequently or infrequently as you'd like me to be =-).
