Our house is located in Riverdale Park. It is less than 1 mile from the University of Maryland and the Prince George's Plaza and College Park metro stations. We are a ten minute walk to Whole Foods/Starbucks and the Hyattsville Arts District. Our house is less than one block from Riverdale MARC station, which is a 10 minute ride to DC's Union Station. 20 minute drive to downtown DC.
We are a friendly, open-minded, LGBTQ-friendly late 20s couple. We hope to welcome you to our home!
My husband (Andrew) and I live in the house with our dog, a Lab mix named Quinn. We sleep in the upstairs bedroom, which includes a living room and private bathroom.
You have use of the entire first floor of the house:
-Plenty of room to hang out in the living room, dining room, backyard and deck, and front porch.
-Use of the living room’s 48 inch TV, which includes complimentary access to HBO, Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime.
-Use of the living room stereo system, which is quite nice, and includes easy access via the auxiliary cord.
-The downstairs bathroom is right off from your guest bedroom and is used solely by you, as we have our own private bath upstairs. The bathroom was updated in 2016.
-Use of our lovely kitchen to cook meals, which we recently renovated in April 2017!
-Use of our grill (propane included)!
- Iron and ironing board available
-Washer and Dryer use
You will stay in our guest bedroom which is on the first floor with a newly remodeled bathroom with shower. The guest bedroom is newly painted, well lit, clean, and has a relaxing queen mattress. The room is very private.
Strong wifi is available throughout the house.
The well-equipped, gourmet kitchen has a five burner stove, granite countertops, and fresh cabinets throughout. The dining room table easily seats six.
The back deck is a relaxing place to hang out and includes patio furniture that can seat six. Please feel free to use our grill and cook up a feast! The deck overlooks a large, tree covered backyard.
If you are driving, on-street parking is easy to find right in front of the house and free 24 hours a day.
The house is in the Washington suburbs, not in the city. The house is less than a block from the Riverdale MARC station, which provides a ten minute MARC ride to DC's Union Station. The house is a short 1 mile from both the College Park and Prince George's Plaza Metro stations and a five minute drive (1 mile) to the University of Maryland. Don't want to drive to campus? No problem, the Terp shuttle is less than two blocks away too! It is about a 20 minute Metro ride to the National Mall in Washington. From our house, it is a 25 minute drive to downtown DC.
There are lots of restaurants nearby, some bars, 7-11, and fast food places within walking distance. We also have a brand new Whole Foods and Starbucks less than 3 blocks to our north. Near Prince George’s Plaza Metro station there is a shopping center with a Target, grocery store, restaurants, and movie theaters.
In addition, the house is less than a block from the weekly Riverdale Park Farmer's Market (Thursdays) as well as Town Center Market, a trendy spot that serves many local and national beers on tap.
If you arrive at BWI or Union Station, the MARC train can easily get you to the Riverdale or College Park MARC stops. If you arrive at DCA, you can easily take the green line to Prince George’s Plaza and walk or take a five minute uber/lyft/taxi from there.
We live in the house with our Labrador-mix dog named Quinn. Quinn is very friendly, lazy, and cuddly. He is very good with kids. He may bark when you first arrive. If you are allergic to dogs, please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate. During your stay, if we are not home, he will be upstairs in our bedroom.
If you are new to this, it may seem a bit strange to stay in someone’s house while they are there, but I suggest you try it. I bet you won’t ever want to go back to a conventional hotel. You are staying with locals who know the area well and you get all the advantages of staying in a house – a kitchen, a living room, a backyard, a deck, front porch, grilling, wifi, HBO/Netflix/AmazonPrime, and even a dog!
Zugang für Gäste
You have 1 private bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor. You have access to and may use the kitchen, first floor bathroom, living room, dining room, back deck, front porch, grill, and washer and dryer in the basement.
Interaktion mit Gästen
We try to stay out of the guest’s way, but are available to answer questions or help with any of your needs. We are always happy to chat and hang out with guests if they wish. We both work full-time, though my husband works from home upstairs on some days. During your stay, if we are not home, our dog will be upstairs in our bedroom. If you love dogs, you'll love ours!
