The Space

If you are considering visiting the Washington DC area for Thanksgiving, Christmas holidays or any occasion, or have overflow family coming, please consider my lovely, mid-century modern home located in a National Historic District in Bethesda, MD -- 20 minutes from DC. The weather is GORGEOUS this time of year -- perfect temperature and not humid, it's pretty mild here through November.....whether you're coming from a hot or cold climate, you will find it perfect.

4 bedrooms (1 King bed, 2 Queens, 1 single) plus very comfortable pull out sofa in the downstairs family room, 3 full bathrooms (all have tubs/shower, large master bath has separate shower and tub). Home has been expanded to include very large Master bedroom/bath and a large breakfast room off the kitchen. Located on small cul de sac perfect for kids (you can sit on the balcony with your coffee and watch them play), has an outdoor patio as well with table and chairs, lounge chair, barbecue (you can eat outside) and includes access to Carderock Club with 3 outdoor pools, basketball, tennis and playground.

There are also great restaurants and groceries right around Carderock within a 4 minute drive.
WHAT MAKES THIS HOME UNIQUE: First, this neighborhood is historic because of the mid-century modern architecture but also the way the homes were built into the rolling hills and forests so as not to disturb the natural landscape. The home itself is beautiful, well-loved, well furnished, luxurious, kitchen is new and gorgeous, it's very comfortable, has everything you need, very clean, large enough for an extended family, about a third of what it would cost you for a hotel; it's an oasis of peace in a forested, beautiful community, yet close to everything.

  • It was a pleasure staying in Penny Daniels' house. Great location, well maintained, clean and a spacious house. A great place for our family reunion.
    Thanks Penny!

  • My family (3 adults and 3 kids) came to visit me in DC for a week in early April. They stayed at Penny's place and we cannot speak highly enough about the house, location and the diligent service/preparations by Penny herself.

    The house itself is spacious, really nicely decorated and in a beautiful setting. It is easily accessible and public transport runs up and down River Road.

    I really recommend the house and Penny as an owner. My family will be back!

I am a communications consultant who loves design and architecture (especially mid-century) looking to rent my home in Bethesda MD to a family, couple or single (no groups) on a temporary basis (1-6 months is ideal, will definitely consider renting weekly as well, 3 night minimum.) Pets considered on an individual basis. My home is my heart, I have taken care of it, loved it, renovated and expanded it, collected art and furnishings for it for 10 years, it was a terrific place to raise my two children, and now it's time for me to travel and explore some other possible options. I want to rent to people who will enjoy my home and take care of it as if it were theirs. I will provide all the comforts and lots of info about the area and all the great things to do and sights to see.
