[Firm four night minimum. No events]. Large open floor plan, perfect for gathering of family and friends. This beautiful home is just outside Washington DC in an architect-designed home that looks out over the C&O Canal National Park and the Potomac River.

This house was amazing! Tons of space, quiet location in wonderful neighborhood and a nice sized yard. We would definitely rent again!
Perfect for a family gathering to enjoy time together. Beautifully designed contemporary home with a large kitchen & plenty of room in a nice neighborhood.
Looking out of the two story windows at the trees was like being in a luxurious treehouse. The screened in porch let the breezes in as you looked over the beautiful yard. The house was comfortable for the seven of us and cooking in the kitchen was easy. It’s also a great location to get to Arlington and DC.
It was a great experience to spend one week at Nancy’s beautiful house. We had an amazing time spent with my family and will definitely stay again in the future. Thank you Nancy.
We enjoyed this beautiful and unique home on a stunning property. Loads of space, well appointed, great communication. A+ all the way!
We came down to the DC area for a change of scenery over spring break. The house was a perfect location to chill out, visit DC and generally enjoy a real change of scenery.
The house is beautiful! Lots of cool spaces. Our favorite was the family room with the fireplace, and also the lovely enclosed porch. Great location. You can walk through the back yard right to the Irish Inn in just a few minutes. The owners seemed a little fussy about house rules and cleaning up, but no big deal.
The house and owners were great... we recommend staying here, especially if you want a bit of solitude, yet ease of accessing the DC area.
This home is all and more than you can imagine. Having rented homes from coast to coast and internationally as well, this property was by far the best! The owners made the entire experience easy, from check in to check out. Everything we needed to enjoy our stay was supplied by Nancy and Mark. We rented the property to meet our grandson stationed at Fort Meade in the Air Force. The piano was a bonus as he entertained us daily with his personal concerts. The kitchen was perfect for preparing gourmet meals (especially during COVID). During our stay we spent almost the entire time at the house enjoying the beautiful property (inside and out). The only thing that could have made it better would have been that we owned this property! Thank you Nancy and Mark! We look forward to planning out next visit.
We had a fantastic stay at this lovely house! The kitchen is so spacious and really great if you like to cook, which we did for almost every meal. Waking up every morning to the beautiful woods surrounding the home was so peaceful. It's hard to believe that DC is so close by! This is a great location for heading out on the C&O Canal trails and for hitting up spots in DC and nearby towns in Maryland and VA. We would love to come back!
Wonderful house, excellent location. Ideal if you want to hike/bike/kayak in Great Falls. DC is just minutes away via Massachusetts or the Clara Barton. Would definitely stay here again. House is as advertised. Pictures do not lie! This is a great spot if you’re looking for an escape that’s COVID friendly.
We had an idyllic stay for a long weekend when we were in town for a graduation. Our hosts could not have been more gracious and the house is absolutely lovely. It was a beautiful piece of country about 25 minutes from downtown. Thank you for sharing your home and making our weekend such a success.
This is a luxury home that embraces you and your family with every convenience. The house is huge fully stocked in a gorgeous natural setting . The art work is varied and abundant but not intimidating to live among. And your host Nancy and Mark are immediately. responsive. No detail has been skipped including frsh flowers and candles to light your dinner table with. Thank you
The owners go above and beyond to accommodate. Lots of helpful communication. The house is huge and very modern. I had six family members and myself and it easily accommodated all of us. Location was great. Landscaping was very nice. We really felt at home. I would definitely recommend this property.
The house has many interesting architectural details and staying in such a lovely place added to our weekend enjoyment
We travel a lot and have always had good VRBO experiences, but this property tops them all! It’s spacious, very comfortable, and has personality - very cool design and the ceiling lighting was a wonderful surprise! The owners made check in and checkout seamless. We hope to return again over the next 4 years of visiting our college kiddo!
This home is beautiful throughout and very impressive. It is quite comfortable too. What a luxurious treat and conveniently located in a wooded and quiet setting. AMAZING!
We came as two families one from the US and one from Israel, the house is great for tourists and locals. The house itself is very big, comfortable, and well architected. The house contains many amenities including basketball, table tennis, mini gym, and a grill. The house is located in a good neighborhood and very close to Washington D.C. The house being close to all the capital’s facilities and museums makes it very comfortable. In addition, the hosts were very nice and always were able to help with every question and request. Very pleasant hospitality that improves the experience even more. In conclusion, the house gives great experience in any aspect imaginable, highly recommended.
This is a great place to stay for any activities in the Bethesda and DC area. Beautiful home next to the woods in a wonderful neighborhood. Great for walks and jogs and easy access to anywhere. We saw a deer in the yard as well as two foxes one evening that entertained us. The home is gorgeous with a great kitchen as we cooked many meals during our stay. A must do!
The property was was beautiful, clean, and upscale. Perfect accomodations. We loved it.
The home and the property were absolutely beautiful! Very clean and we had everything we needed. Very peaceful after long days of sight-seeing! The owner was promptly responsive in all correspondence and made everything easy. We all loved, loved, loved this rental!!!
This was a beautiful private home in Cabin John. Fantastic, quiet neighborhood close to restaurants and shops in downtown Bethesda and Friendship Heights. Easy commute to Georgetown and the National Mall down the Clara Barton Parkway. Close to the C&O canal towpath and Great Falls. My kids loved the ping pong table in the basement.
A beautiful home that is comfortable for a family stay. The many levels connected by stairs can be a challenge for the very young and very old but able stair climbers will love the modern elegance of this spacious home. Nancy, the owner was very helpful with rapid responses to my queries. I have no reservations in recommending this lovely home for a stay in the DC area.
Needed a large home to accommodate our family for our daughters graduation and Nancy and Mark’s home was perfect. The home was well stocked and met all our needs. The backyard was spectacular for grad pictures, just stunning. Totally enjoyed our visit.
We had a lovely stay with our 3 children. We arrived late in the day and Nancy left bread, milk and eggs so we would be all set for the next morning. She checked in on us as well to make sure we were settled in. The home is absolutely gorgeous and had everything we needed to be comfortable for 6 days. The house manual is comprehensive and even included information about how to get to and use the Metro which was incredibly helpful!
A beautiful and engaging property. Fully furnished right down to the alphabetized spices if you like to cook. A very unique and interesting space to stay, and very good for larger groups. Thanks guys!
If you think the pictures are stunning, wait till you see the actual house: the architecture, the art work, the furniture and the setting of the surroundings… We have experienced many (at least a dozen) excellent VRBO properties, but the home of Nancy and Mark truly stands out! Furthermore, this is their regular home, so the kitchen and the rest of the house come fully equipped --- the Grosses are most generous in letting us using them all. Nancy and Mark, you have been such generous and thoughtful hosts. Experiencing your hospitality has been a great experience for us!
Convenient to DC and MD. We stayed there with our family of 5 kids, and loved every moment. The house is nicely furnished, and provides everything you would need - sheets, towels, kitchen supplies, etc. There is great play space inside and outside for the kids. The hosts are lovely! They offered to grocery shopping for us in advance so that the kids could have come milk and other things upon arrival. I am very particular, and loved this place. Would definitely stay there again!!!
I rented this house with three other writers for a writing retreat over a four-day, three-night weekend. We were so glad to have such a beautiful, light-filled space to relax, gather together, and also spend time apart. Because this is the homeowners' primary residence, there are (of course) quite a lot of personal effects in the house. But the owners do a great job of clearing space for renters so you don't feel like you're just camping out in someone else's space. The benefits of staying in a house like this also include access to a fully equipped kitchen with everything you need to make gourmet meals, which we definitely availed ourselves of! We wish the fireplace hadn't been turned off for the season, as it got quite chilly after the first day. And the light switches were a bit of a puzzle to figure out - so many options! But all-in-all, we were very happy with our rental choice.
Pleasant, comfortable experience.
This is a beautiful and unique contemporary home in a peaceful setting just a short drive from the Bethesda Metro. It was perfect for our group of eight old friends who liked having space to spread out, privacy when needed, and a beautiful dining area that easily accommodated a large group. The home offers a rare combination of beauty and functionality, including an outdoor area with plenty of seating surrounded by trees and great for our happy hours. The kitchen had everything we could could possibly need for meal prep plus plenty of seating in the adjacent TV room for the non-chefs. Our friendly host Nancy made everything easy and responded quickly to any requests we had. We couldn't recommend this home more highly.
The home had enough private and public spaces that our family felt comfortable. We walked the neighborhood in the evenings and enjoyed it so much. The hosts are organized with instructions and friendly. I recommend this property!
The home is wonderful. The owners were super responsive and everything was as described. There were 5 of us in the house for a week and we had ample room to work alongside each other; and get personal space as needed. The house is minutes from the C&O canal towpath and other parks, a short drive from DC and of course everything you might need in Bethesda.
Lovely elegant home!
It was perfect to host family from out of town for our daughters wedding It was fabulous for her wedding morning photo shoot with her bridesmaids getting ready. It was spacious elegant and functional. The hosts were very helpful We had a difficult time figuring out the modern light switches!!
Very interesting open house plan. Enjoyed the lovely garden, but air traffic hindered outdoor conversation on week days. Oven operation was iffy. But we all had a great time
The owner was accommodating of our requests and very friendly. She worked hard to make sure the property was in top shape for our arrival and kept me informed throughout the entire check-in day. Such a stunning house in a peaceful neighborhood that was very accommodating to our family and friends. We can't thank them enough!
We stayed for 11 days with our family as we celebrated our daughters wedding at Congressional Country Club and watched my husband and son participate in The Nations Triathlon. First and foremost let me say that the home is beautiful. A parklike setting with windows everywhere. Our hosts went above and beyond!! Nancy even left eggs, coffee and juice in the frig so after a 10 hour drive from Atlanta we didn't have to go out first thing in the morning to get breakfast!! She also provided closet space and dresser drawers for us to be able to unpack and settle in. Secondly, the location of the house was perfect. It was easy to get into D.C. and to both airports. Bethsada has amazing shops and a metro station and is only 10 minutes away! There is lots of space for parking. Finally, we had plenty of room to spread out just enjoy the special family time. We were blessed to spend our time there and made so many new family memories.
We had a great time and the place is magnificent. Easy access to Bethesda on not congested roads. Anyone who has been to the DC area knows this is a huge plus. The house was well equipped and the design better than you could ask for. We had lots of space to spread out but felt cozy when we wanted to. Mark and Nancy were easy to work with. We had no issues and felt like we were interacting with people we had known for sometime. We would definately stay again and look forward to a reason to go back.
The home is beautiful!! Very modern, and built beautifully. The home is large and has all the amenities needed for a family get away. 4 bedrooms upstairs with a bed in the basement. My mother-in-law slept down there. Kind of like a suite just for her. The host was awesome! Left us to ourself but was just a text away if I asked anything. I would def come back. The homes as big enough for our 3 generations to all live comfortably.
Great hosts and lovely home Everything you could possibly need is there and the setting is spectacular On future family trips to Bethesda we will for sure try to repeat
