The SpaceThe apt is located in a small village of northern Montgomery County, only about 40 miles from the White House and the hustle and bustle of our nation's capital, but where the loudest noises are bird songs. Windows and doors open to a small patio and expansive lawn, with views of forest and lake. Our guests enjoy the unspoiled natural beauty and plentiful wildlife, hiking, fishing, boating, or just relaxing from the stresses of everyday life. The residence is not visible from the public road, and has free off street parking. Fully furnished bedroom with full size bed with programmable mattress pad warmer, wardrobe, desk with chair, and reading chair; full bath; great room with large comfortable sofa with 3/4 size pull out bed and recliner, desk with chair, large cabinet with inlaid precious stones, smart tv with Netflix and other streaming apps, a stacking washer and dryer, radiant heat, kitchenette and dining area, high ceilings, ceiling fan, central air, and a private entrance; sliding door that opens to small patio and expansive back yard. An automobile is necessary for local travel, but the MARC commuter train platform, Brunswick Line, is about a mile down the road, and provides service to and from DC and points in between b both in the morning and the evening. The Shady Grove Metro station is about a 15 minute drive, has plenty of parking available, and subway service every few minutes from early morning until 11 pm. Long term guests may use host's membership to upscale Healthtrax gym with pool, basketball, handball, classes, personal trainers, full line of fitness equipment ($25/monthly fee, 5 minute drive) Guest AccessYou will be greeted either by me or my son, who will be your on site host. He is a wireless internet service provider and manages his network on site. He and his son have several small dogs, but this furnished apartment is not set up for animals. Two canoes, fishing poles and tackle, and bicycles are available for guest use upon request. Interaction with GuestsI am usually accessible at the other end of the 10 ac. Mini-Mountain property, either working in my herb garden, remodeling our "homestead house", repurposing vintage treasures, or teaching music. The NeighborhoodThe village of Boyds is located on the edge of the county's vast agricultural reserve, and there is considerably more acreage in parkland and greenspace than for either residential or commercial uses. Whereas we have easy access to I-270 a major high tech corridor, we also enjoy many miles of trails, rurual rustic roads, and rolling hills. Sugarloaf Mountain is a popular biking and hiking destination, and we are within an hours drive of Annapolis and Baltimore, of Harpers Ferry and Gettysburg, of Alexandria and Mount Vernon, and of course, Washington DC.
