The Spring Guest House worked out perfectly for my family's reunion/Thanksgiving get-together. We found the house spotless and completely ready for our use. My husband and I were especially happy to see the well-stocked kitchen since we had volunteered to cook Thanksgiving dinner. There were plenty of pots and pans, serving dishes and utensils. It was so nice to be able to enjoy a real Thanksgiving dinner together with our mother, who we came to visit (she resides at Greenspring Retirement Village, which was only about a 10-minute drive from the guest house). She uses a walker but with the railing by the steps to the front door, we were still able to get her into the house easily enough. It was also extremely convenient to have the shopping center so close by, within walking distance actually, for some last-minute items we needed. Having grown up in this area, we knew how convenient the house would be to the Interstates, and we were able to get to Arlington Cemetery easily to visit our father's grave site. Mark Bodycombe, the owner, was very nice to deal with, was responsive to our questions, and flexible to our needs. We are already talking about doing another reunion for our mother's 90th birthday, and we will definitely rent this property again at that time.
The property is in a great location and very convenience to any stores or restaurants. In a quiet neighborhood and easy access from the freeway. My family had an incredible time at this lovely home and the homeowner made us feel like home, treated us like a family. Plenty of room for three families total of 10 and the house was well stocked with every cooking item. We loved the private back yard especially with the BBQ for cook out so we can spend valuable time with our family. The owner is easy to get in touch but you may not need too due to the detailed instructions he send out before arrival plus the welcome guest book in the house. The rental payment is straight forward without any hidden charge and Mark is well took care of the refund deposit to you before you know it. One thing I would recommend is a bigger trash can but other than that we loved staying in this amazingly decorated home and I would recommended to everyone who plan to visit DC anytime soon.
This home's location is in an ideal location being near areas in Virginia and the Washington DC neighborhoods. The community is inviting and has many sidewalks so that you feel safe in getting out to take a walk. There are many choices for places to shop or eat in the local area. While we were here we enjoyed seeing several of the historical sites around Washington DC. The house itself was very clean and well decorated. There was plenty of room for our party of 8 people. We were comfortable and warm. The home owner checked on us several times to make sure that we had all that we needed. We had no issues with this rental at all. We would recommend this property to anyone needing to stay in this area and we would love to be able to visit it again ourselves.
This house was amazing! We were in town for a birthday and multiple generations had plenty of room and privacy. Mark was very accommodating and helpful with any questions we had during our stay. Plenty of dishes for entertaining. Definitely a beautiful home we will stay in again.
My team had an event over the weekend in the area, and decided to make it a moms getaway out of it. The Spring Guest House turned out to be just perfect for us. The place was super clean, easy to get to, conveniently located to pretty much anything we could need, and had plenty of space for all of us to spread out. The area was nice and quiet along with completely safe. The owners were great to work with, and we would definitely recommend the property to anyone in the area.
We had a wonderful time at The Spring Guest House! The reservation process was very easy on line and Mark (the owner) was so helpful in answering questions and guiding me through the process. He also provided an enormous amount of helpful information about staying at the house and in Washington DC. The house itself was very comfortable in every way. We loved the fine art throughout the house - it make the house homey but classy as well. The large kitchen was great to use with our group, fully stocked in every way, and the eating area in the kitchen was used all the time for hanging out or talking while preparing a meal. While we didn't get to use it much due to weather, the outside patio and BBQ looked very inviting. We really appreciated such a comfortable home to come back to after a long day of sightseeing, and loved it being out of town some and in a quieter, more residential setting. We highly recommend The Spring Guest House and hope to be back ourselves!
Our stay was very enjoyable. The amenities were superb and the proximity to the Metro made it very easy to access downtown. Local shopping was very convenient. Recommended for anyone visiting in the DC area.
