Description of the Springfield vacation townhouse rental
A charming home in a quiet neighborhood. Spacious and tasteful accommodations for eight to ten featuring two queen size beds, two twins, a queen sleeper sofa, and a twin sleeper sofa if needed. All the beds, except the twin sofa sleeper, have new memory foam mattress toppers. Hardwood floors throughout the main living areas accented by stylish area rugs and furniture.

Large windows, including floor to ceiling windows in the Living Room, allow ample light in every room. Original art and other quality decor can be found in almost every room. The basement family room features a 42' plasma HD TV with Blue Ray player. Numerous books, games, puzzles and toys are available for our guests use. Along with 3 bedrooms, the 2nd story provides a common media room where you can catch up on emails using our high-speed wireless network, watch TV, or read a good book!

After a long day sight seeing, enjoy a family meal around the table in the kitchen, or a more formal affair in the separate dining room which easily seats 8 or more.

Washer and dryer are available for guest use, and we also provide a Pack N Play and booster seat for families with young ones. A lovely backyard deck and large BBQ grill is ideal for outdoor entertaining in the summer.

Our guest house is perfectly situated to allow easy access to DC's and Virginia's finest attractions. Several DC Metro stations, with ample parking, are within a 5 mile radius. The I-395 and I-495/95 are less than two miles away for quick access downtown or to all parts of Virginia and Maryland.
Area Information
There really is no place like Washington DC in the world. The collection of world-class museums featuring some of the world's best art, science and portrayals of national and world history is unprecedented! The numerous memorials commemorating historic and important people and events in US history are not to miss. As the seat of our country's government, there are countless opportunities to visit, learn about and experience important federal facilities including the White House, Capitol, FBI, Bureau of Engraving and Printing, Library of Congress, and many more!

The Washington metro area is also home to the most diverse population in the USA. As a result, there are countless opportunities to experience foreign cuisines and cultures in a way not possible in any other US city.

Despite being a major metropolitan area, there are many outdoor activities to take part in including excellent biking, water sports, hiking, white water rafting, skiing, and exploring the Shenandoah National Park. Virginia also has a burgeoning wine business exemplified by some very good wineries you can easily visit on a day trip to the more rural parts of the state.

Other very popular attractions are close enough to access on a day trip, including Williamsburg, King's Dominion theme park, Annapolis, Baltimore's Inner Harbor, Gettysburg, and the Chesapeake Bay.

The spring guest house was everything that we hoped it would be for our family vacation. I'll admit, I was hesitant to book the house because I had never rented a vacation home through a site before, but I'm so glad I did!! The home is everything that it is said to be. It's in a beautiful quiet neighborhood that we felt safe in. After busy sightseeing days in dc, it was the perfect house to come home to. The owners made the whole booking and staying process very easy. If you are thinking about renting, do it... You won't be sorry!!!!!

Owner's reply:

Thanks Staci! We're thrilled you and your family and friends had a great time in DC, and at our home! We'd love to have you back again if you ever get to the DC area!

The townhouse was absolutely perfect! We traveled with our daughter and her husband and our two grandchildren. Our grandson is autistic. Autisic children sometimes have difficulties with traveling and change but he was immediately comfortable here. Picked out his bedroom, played in the enclosed backyard area and even wanted to stay longer when it was time to leave. The house it perfectly located to attractions within the DC area. The owners are amazing! They are very helpful and provide excellent information specific to the surrounding area. Great place to enjoying the sights by day and relax and regroup by night.

We spent two and a half weeks at Spring Guest House in April with our young family of 5. The house was furnished beautifully and had everything we needed. The kitchen was fully stocked with plates, bowls, etc. There was plenty of linen too. The backyard was a nice bonus for my boys. The house is located in a great neighborhood and close to good restaurants, parks and highways. Mark was very helpful in providing us with assistance whenever required. Highly recommended!

Mark and Kathy's house met all of our needs and exceeded expectations. We had an extended family of seven adults and there was plenty of space for all to stretch out after a full day of taking in the city and surrounding sights. The home is located close to the Metro Rail ( which we relied on almost exclusively for our jaunts into and around the DC area), grocery stores, restaurants, fuel and local shopping. The home has been updated and and we plenty of bed space and bathrooms to accommodate our group. As usual with our family the kitchen is where most like to linger and this one was large enough to accommodate us. It had plenty of space for food prep as well as a large table where most ate and we played a few games before we retired for the evening. Plenty of sitting area, TV's and space for all of us to just unwind after a day of sightseeing in the city. The outdoor patio space also offered a great place to get together and sit a while, grill out or enjoy a cocktail to unwind. The beds were very comfortable and provided a much needed good nights sleep

Dave - thanks for the gracious review! We work hard to make our home as comfortable and usable for family's like yours and we're very pleased you had a great time in DC and at our house. We'd love to see you again should your travels bring you back to the DC metro area.

5-Stars on Vacation Rental by Owner (#655695). Guest review:

Our family of seven stayed here while visiting D.C. and touring the surrounding area (Mt. Vernon and Great Falls Park). There was plenty of space for each of us to relax after a day of touring. Our teenage children loved hanging out in the basement. The house was very clean. The beds were quite comfortable. We found the kitchen to be large enough to handle seven people working on dinner preparations. It had the appliances and utensils we would use in our own kitchen. We enjoyed dining out in the backyard. Communication with the owner was very easy. We would recommend this house to our family and friends.

5-Stars on Vacation Rental by Owner (#655695). Guest review:

My group stayed there during our visit to Virginia for the 2015 World Police & Fire Games. This is a very well maintain home that has plenty of space (There were 8 people in our group). We really enjoyed how convenient this location was to everything, especially the Metro. We were less than 5 minutes away from the metro and that made our trips to DC very simple. Everything in the house was clean and well updated. We really enjoyed the back patio area where we took advantage of cooking out. Its an excellent place to stay.

We were thrilled with the accommodations provided! The owner kept in touch with us by text and phone. All I had to do was text or call with questions and I was answered promptly! We loved the newly renovated basement accommodations and the cleanliness of the whole house! We were able to grill, cook, and relax while visiting the sites of Washington D.C. I would definitely stay here again! I HIGHLY recommend this home to anyone who is visiting Washington D.C.!

5-Stars on Vacation Rental by Owner (#655695). Guest review:

This home was very clean, tastefully decorated and had plenty of room for 3 families to share and still each have their own spaces. The backyard deck and grilling space was fantastic. We loved the location and proximity of grocery stores, target, and Costco. The owner is very kind and accommodating.

5-Stars on Vacation Rentals by Owner (#655695). Guest review:

We were very pleased staying at the Guest House. It was located in a very convenient location for us. The house was very clean, and even though we had a couple of minor issues, they were taken care of very quickly, and without any problems on our part. We found that there were plenty of spaces for sleeping. We highly recommend this house for staying. After conversing with the remainder of the family, we have decided that if we plan on visiting that area again, we will be working our schedule to stay there. We also found that the neighborhood was extremely quiet, and neighbors seemed to be friendly. Thanks again.

5-Stars on Vacation Rentals By Owner #655695. Guest review:

We stayed at Spring Guest House for the week of a family member's wedding. It was in a great location, very clean, and the owners were very responsive to any questions or concerns. The house is beautiful and housed our nine people very comfortably. There were so many added touches, beyond what was expected: basket with snacks and waters, good quality sheets, pillows, mattresses and towels, etc.. My husband and I even slept on the pullout couch which was surprisingly comfortable! The patio in the backyard was lovely! We highly recommend this property and will definitely stay there again if we are in the DC area. A perfect week!

Lot's of well-appointed space on three levels. Perfect home away from home at the end of a busy day touring the Washington DC area. Great location near attractions, Metro train station, highways, grocery store, gas stations, etc... yet secluded enough to allow for restful relaxation.
Owner very nice and easy to work with. I highly recommend.

5-Stars on Vacation Rentals By Owner (#655695). Guest Review:

This is the perfect home away from home in an ideal location away from the congestion, easy access to grocery stores, restaurants, etc. yet convenient to Highways and major road ways around Washington DC. It is especially great for families who enjoy having spacious accommodations.
My family and I wanted to be close to the Capitol without being in the chaos. This home fit the bill on all levels. We had plenty of room to relax after long days of exploring. Our teens loved coming home to their media accessible space to keep up with their friends.
The rooms exceeded our expectations; they were warm, welcoming, tastefully decorated and extremely comfortable. The kitchen was clean & complete with everything needed for preparing any type of meal.
The owners were extremely helpful with suggestions and communicated clearly, quickly & consistently. I am sure we'll be back soon!

5-Stars on Vacation Rentals By Owner (#655695). Guest Review:

We had a group of seven adults and Mark and Kathy's home filled all of our needs. The property was close to the Metro Rail (which we used almost exclusively to get around the D.C. area), groceries, restaurants, fuel and local shopping. The home had ample space for all of our group and then some. The inside was updated, clean and had all of the amenities that we needed. With an extended family, everyone had space to spread out and relax. The kitchen has a lot of space for food prep and as usual; when the family congregates--they all seem to meet in the kitchen. There was a large table and chairs in the kitchen to accommodate the the feeding frenzies and a few nights of games after a hard day of touring in the nation's capitol. There was an additional dining room when needed as well. The outdoor space also provided a great place to unwind, grill out and have a couple cocktails and enjoy the time together. The house was very clean and the last comment my wife made as we exited the house and headed for home was " now we have to go back to our old mattress on our bed (which isn't old--just not as comfortable as the one in the master bed room). I would stay here again and I highly recommend this property to anyone visiting the Washington D.C. area.

Our party of 3 stayed at the Spring Guest House in January for business. They very much enjoyed coming back to the house after working all day and being able to relax in such comfortable surroundings. Mark and Kathy were very easy to communicate with and entrance to the house was easy. Everything was clean and they were provided everything they needed. They were sorry they missed meeting their daughter because of their schedule. We will definitely stay there again.

5-Stars on Vacation Rentals By Owner (#655695). Guest Review:

My family was gathering to inter my father's remains at Arlington National Cemetery. This home was perfect - close to Arlington, airports, and easy to get anywhere in the area from 'home'. The owners were very helpful and responsive to all of our needs during this hectic and important gathering. We flew in from all over the country and all were unfamiliar with the area. The train line stop into central DC was close and we used that the following day to explore museums on the mall. They have a great space for gathering family and provided everything we needed for some very pleasant meals and playing games together. We felt right at home - thanks so much! Val W. and family

Very nice house. Quiet, easy access location. Gas station, grocery store nearby. Springfield Metro Station about 20 min drive away. Numerous restaurants within 30 min drive. Nicely furnished, kitchen was amply stocked for 8+ people. Nice deck/patio area with gas grille. Easy parking for two cars. Owner pleasant and accommodating. Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would do a return stay if needed. Would highly recommend.
