    The Spaceeasy access to METRO, beautiful historic Victorian Guest Accessbathroom, kitchen, living area, laundry, internet/WiFi The NeighborhoodThe town, located between White Flint and Rock Creek Park, has no home mail delivery, which means that its roughly 1,000 residents must go there to get their mail, interacting with their neighbors when they do. “On Saturdays, when the farmers market is going on outside and the post office is buzzing inside, it’s obvious that Garrett Park is very much a place where people live and interact,” said Peter Benjamin, who has lived in the town since 1988 and has served as mayor for four nonconsecutive terms. “It is a community in every sense of the word, which in the Washington suburbs is unusual.” Living there: The town incorporated in 1898, thanks in large part to Grace E.D. Sprigg’s decision to install indoor plumbing in her Garrett Park home, Benjamin said. “People here were afraid of indoor plumbing and septic tanks,” Benjamin said. “The town incorporated in order to pass the town’s first law outlawing indoor plumbing.” Sprigg left the town, and the regulation was eventually abolished. But the incorporation stayed. Garrett Park is perhaps best known for its gingerbread-trimmed Victorian houses, which helped earn the entire town a place on the National Register of Historic Places in 1976. But Benjamin said the roughly 300 houses in the town represent a variety of architectural styles, including “Chevy houses,” or small houses built for returning World War I veterans. The houses, each of which had a small bedroom, a bathroom, a Pullman kitchen and a Murphy bed in the living room, were so named because homeowners could add a garage and a Chevrolet to the mortgage, according to “Garrett Park, Maryland: A Scrapbook,” published by the town in 1988. Most of those Chevy houses remain standing today, albeit with large additions on the back. The neighborhood is bounded by Rock Creek Park to the southeast, the Parkside development to the southwest, the B&O Railroad to the northeast, and Flanders Avenue and Waycross Way to the west. Three houses sold within the past six months, from $665,000 to $1.175 million, according to Jeremy Lichtenstein, an agent with Re/Max; six are on the market, from $695,000 to $2.295 million; and three are under contract, from $779,000 to $819,000. Social events: A chapel built in 1897 that serves as Town Hall hosts everything from yoga classes to town meetings and free movie nights. The town also hosts a Fourth of July parade, a reception for newcomers and a monthly “coffee shop” in which musically inclined residents perform for neighbors, Benajmin said. The town’s swimming pool, a private, nonprofit entity that many residents are members of, also serves as a center of social activity. Residents also gather at Porcupine Woods, a sliver of green space that the town purchased and turned into a park in 1973 to prevent it from being developed, Benjamin said. The town has a cooperative nursery school, where parents help in the classroom on a rotating basis. The railroad: Garrett Park was developed as a commuter suburb next to the Metropolitan Branch of the B&O Railroad in the late 1800s, and the first of many grand Victorian mansions was built in 1887, according to “Garrett Park,” a book of the town’s history written by Barbara Shidler and other town residents in 1974. Today, many residents still commute to downtown Washington via MARC, which has a station at Penn Place, or by Metro — the Grosvenor-Strathmore station is less than a mile from most spots in town. Garrett Park residents can also walk to dozens of restaurants and shops in nearby Rockville, White Flint and Kensington. Benjamin said the proposed redevelopment of White Flint is a matter of concern for many residents, some of whom worry that the development will add traffic to Strathmore Avenue, which runs through the neighborhood. Schools: Garrett Park Elementary, Tilden Middle and Walter Johnson High schools. Getting AroundThe MARC Train to union Station stops in Garrett Park and the Grosvenor-Strathmore RED Line METRO Stop is just as convenient. The Montgomery County Ride-On bus stop is at the end of the block!

Getting AroundYes, walk to Grosvenor-Strathmore Station on the Metro Red Line or Montgomery County Ride-On bus. Other Things to NoteSomeone searching for the heart of Montgomery County’s tiny Garrett Park could look no farther than Penn Place, the town’s only commercial building, on a Saturday. The top floor of the old general store, built in the late 1800s, holds the town offices. Below that is Garrett Park’s only restaurant, Black Market Bistro. And downstairs, the row of mailboxes in the town’s post office serves as a center of social activity. The town, located between White Flint and Rock Creek Park, has no home mail delivery, which means that its roughly 1,000 residents must go there to get their mail, interacting with their neighbors when they do. “On Saturdays, when the farmers market is going on outside and the post office is buzzing inside, it’s obvious that Garrett Park is very much a place where people live and interact,” said Peter Benjamin, who has lived in the town since 1988 and has served as mayor for four nonconsecutive terms. “It is a community in every sense of the word, which in the Washington suburbs is unusual.” Living there: The town incorporated in 1898, thanks in large part to Grace E.D.

The NeighborhoodHammond Hill, sister neighborhood to The Hammond Wood Historic District (National Register of Historic Places), is a suburban development consisting of Contemporary single-family houses nestled in a tract of heavily wooded, rolling land. Contemporary post-World War II housing by Charles M. Goodman have been recognized as an example of how pioneering architect/builder teams were redefining the monotonous suburban cultural landscape into enclaves that were overwhelmingly naturalistic. Explore the work of Goodman in Hammond Wood (across Viers Mill) or Rock Creek Woods, another National Register mid-century modern community just around the corner off Connecticut Avenue.

      The SpaceMake yourself comfortable in this welcoming, private room in a 2-story townhouse. Let this be your home location as you visit friends, have an extended work stay or even tour nearby DC. The room has everything to make you feel comfortable--a good bed, ceiling fan, alarm clock, large closet, bookshelves, TV with cable, good lighting. So settle in to relax or just have a comfortable place to return to at the end of the day. The neighborhood is quiet and residential, but just 2 miles away is the shopping mall, grocery store, Metro stop (red line) and more. Also conveniently located to Connecticut Avenue (less than 0.5 miles) and Georgia Avenue (2 miles). Free wi-fi, cable, parking. There is 1 somewhat-feisty cat in the house. Hope you will enjoy your stay! PLEASE NOTE (these are responses to the 3 most frequently-asked questions): 1.) Most people would prefer this location if they have a car, though it is possible to travel around the area by bus & Metro. DETAILS: The location is just outside of DC in the Wheaton/Silver Spring area. Either by car or Metro, the total commute to downtown on a weekday tends to be 45-55 minutes. This location is about 2 miles from the Metro station so it's possible to drive to the Metro or take the bus to the Metro Station (honestly, the walk/bus option may "get old" after a week or two for many people...). The bus can also take you downtown or the 2 miles to the shopping mall/grocery store. So I just want to note that most people would probably prefer this location if they have a car even though it's not necessary to get around. Those that plan to commute daily to downtown DC should make sure they would be comfortable with this commute. 2.) The room is private and set at the back of the 2nd story, next to the home office and next to the upstairs bathroom. The 2nd story also has my bedroom. The bathroom is what I call "semi-private", meaning that there is only 1 shower in the house so I (the owner) do shower there, but otherwise stay out of that back area completely and have all of my toothbrush,etc. in the downstairs bathroom. 3.) I hope you'll make yourself comfortable and help yourself to items in the kitchen, use the ironing board, etc. The house is "self-service"--I'll have some breakfast foods available upon your arrival and create space in the fridge & cabinets for you to place your own foods for other meals. Just make yourself comfortable & enjoy your stay! Feel free to let me know if you have any questions!

      The SpaceOur home was built in 1965 using the classical mid-century modern architectural design of the period. We have made certain to maintain the same look and feel with original Scandinavian furniture of the classical designers of the time. However, we have also added touches of modern comfort, as we like to mix and match the old (albeit modern) with the new. I work in the high tech sector, so the house is completely wired (and wireless). You will enjoy the fasted internet connection anywhere in the country, and a tech guru who can help you with just about any tech-related questions you may have. We are two middle-age professionals who are very ecologically-minded and enjoy meeting new people. We respect those who are like-minded and enjoy animals as well, domesticated or otherwise. We actually have two great Cavalier King Charles and a Bichon Frise dogs who ARE part of the family. You will be renting two separate guest rooms with one full bathroom to share with your party alone. We do not accept different guests to each room. When you book, you get both rooms. One has a queen-size, memory-foam bed and the other one a twin-size bed (note: airbnb would not let me change the number of rooms, so the above description of 1 room is incorrect). I work from home, so I can make sure to be present should you have any questions about your stay. We live in a safe, quite neighborhood within walking distance of a shopping center, a grocery store, and the Strathmore Center for the Performing Arts. We're less than 1.5 miles from NIH and the Naval / Walter Reed Hospital, and as mentioned below, a short ride away from DC. We are more interested in hosting interesting and compatible people than making a few extra dollars. This is why we usually request for you to tell us a little about yourself before we accept a booking request, especially if you have no or few reviews. Our primary purpose for opening up our home to you is to get to know you, not to become rich. We hope you understand. If you have any questions at all, feel free to contact me. I usually reply back within hours, unless I am traveling, in which case I will reply within a day. Welcome to the future of the sharing economy! Guest AccessYou and yours are free to use our kitchen, our laundry and the rest of the house at will. Please keep in mind that we like to cook as well, but in the Latin tradition, we tend to have late dinners, so we will hardly ever be in your way. We don't watch much TV, so the entire downstairs area is yours to enjoy a Netflix movie, a PBS show, or just about anything you want. Feel free to read a book in the sunny and spacious living room. Beware, however, that our dogs may want to seat on your lap as you sip through a hot cup of tea :-) Interaction with GuestsWe love to meet you. This is THE reason why we do this. But we won't be in your face. We will respect your privacy, as we hope you will appreciate ours. The house is large enough that I may not even realize you're home when I work in the basement. But if you welcome a good and intelligent political discussion, exchange ideas on climate change, or are concerned about the rapid changes in technology, let's have a chat. The NeighborhoodYou will be living in a residential area where folks walk their dogs, bring their kids to the park across the street, rush to the metro station and greet each other as we pass by. A smile will open up doors for you, and the good people of the Wildwood Manor community will love you for that. Getting AroundRoute 6 bus stops one hundred yards from the place. This bus goes to Grosvenor metro station (Washington, DC, Red line), which in turns travels south to Downtown DC. Unfortunately, the route 6 bus only runs every 30 minutes Monday through Friday from about 6:00 am until 8:00 pm. However, Grosvenor station is only about a mile from our place. It may take you no more than 20 minutes to walk to it. Normally, I will be glad to pick you up from the metro station or give you rides to it if I am not holding an online conference or I'm otherwise busy with life. If you're arriving by metro, please let me know ahead of time your estimated arrival and I will wait for you at the end of the tunnel from the station. If you're arriving from Dulles airport, you may take the Supper Shuttle (about $35 including tip, and $10 for each additional passenger), or take bus 5A to L'Enfant Plaza metro station ($7.00, exact change needed or use a Smart Card), and from there change to the Red line at Gallery Place towards Shady Grove (Off-peak hours: $3.60; Peak hours: $4.70). If you're coming from Baltimore International (BWI), the Supper Shuttle will cost you about $45 with tips, and $12 per additional passenger. Alternatively, you may take bus B30 to Greenbelt metro station ($7.00, exact change needed or use a Smart Card), and from there change to the Red line at Gallery Place towards Shady Grove (Off-peak hours: $3.60; Peak hours: $5.90). If you're arriving from National Airport, the Super Shuttle costs about $33 with tip, and $10 per additional passenger. Alternatively, take the Yellow metro line at the airport and change to the Red line at Gallery Place towards Shady Grove (Off-peak hours: $3.60; Peak hours: $5.55). Please note that you will be required to use a Smart Card to ride the metro. These are valid on buses as well. Smart Cards may be purchased at all metro stations. Other Things to NoteQ & A: Q. What's the bathroom situation? A. There is one full, always clean bathroom just across the hall from your rooms. It is there for your exclusive use. You will NOT share it with anyone else. It has clean towels, soap and shampoo. Q. How close are you from public transportation? A. We are 15-20 minutes walking from Grosvenor Metro station on DC's Red line. From there, it is usually about 23-25 minutes to downtown. Bus No 6 will take you to the metro station, but it runs only every 30 minutes, Monday through Friday. If you are unable to walk or do not enjoy it, and you must use public transportation, this may not be the place for you. Q: What motivates you to share your own, private home? A: We like people. We have no kids, and the house is way too large for only the two of us and the dogs. We believe in the sharing economy, meaning the adequate use of otherwise underutilized resources. A large, empty house is a terrible resource to waste. Q: Have you ever been afraid or reluctant to host “strangers”? A: I must admit that my wife was initially skeptical. There is a natural stigma associated with bringing people we don’t know into our private quarters. Over the months and years, what we have received from complete strangers is life-long friendships, wonderful memories, interesting conversations, exotic meal recipes, laughs, and the satisfaction that we’ve accomplish all this by simply allowing other extraordinary human beings into a space that was previously wasted. My wife is now more than convinced! Q: OK, but aren’t you doing this for the money? A: Fair question, but no. My wife and I are two mid-life professionals currently employed in interesting companies. About 60% of the proceeds from airbnb go straight back into improving the house and hence the guest experience. Thanks to the extra cash, for example, I’ve been able to implement long-kept projects for the house, such as solar panel installation, water recycling initiatives, and installing natural gas saving appliances. If you’d like to know more regarding our environmental objectives and how you can use them in your own community, I’d love to tell you all about them. Q: What about the other 40%? A: We’ve increase pay to both our cleaning lady and our handy man, both of whom we’ve known and trusted for over 15 years. OK, and perhaps we’ve also treated ourselves to one or two nice (and used) mid-century furniture pieces. Q. You do not have a cleaning fee. Should I be expected to clean my room? A. Nope. In fact, Toni, our wonderful cleaning lady since 1998, will tidy up your room(s) and bathroom every Wednesday (even if you arrive on a Tuesday). Feel free to say hello to her, and if you're so inclined, she would be most appreciative of a small tip. We just like to keep our home neat, guests or not :-) Q. What's the deal with you being a Superhost? A. Well then, since you ask...I'm a Superhost because we're relaxed about our guests despite us having full-time jobs of our own. However, I've come to be rather fond of that "title," and I don't appreciate when a guest leaves a review saying that the metro stop was too far away, or that the place was not what they expected (there's only about 30 pictures). If a guest does not read the detailed description where I specify the exact distance to places, or the meticulous portrayal of the house, or whatever, then their reviews should be kinder. I truly enjoy 5-star reviews. If there's something you do not like while here, I beg you to let me know and I promise to do what I can to revert your perspective. Again, communication is king.

Interaction with GuestsAs much or as little as desired by the guest. The NeighborhoodBy the time of its incorporation as a Town in 1898, Garrett Park was a busy small town with a population of over a hundred and containing more than 30 buildings. Much of life centered around the trains and the station, the railroad being the only public transportation in the early years. The trains to and from Washington were numerous, as many as nine a day into the city, with train service on Saturdays and Sundays. It seems clear that through much of the 1890s, the sounds of construction, hammering and sawing and all that went with them, continued unabated in Garrett Park. During the 1890s, 14 houses as well as a one-room schoolhouse were constructed on Kenilworth Avenue, making this street the most heavily populated at the time, being the location of nearly half the houses in Town. Seven houses were built on Waverly, six on Montrose, five on Keswick, and one lone house, long know as the Cleveland house, on Rokeby. In 1893, the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad build a train station in Town, one quite similar to that built in Kensington in 1890, the only one that still stands today. The sights and sounds of horse-drawn wagons, bringing from the B&O siding the building materials to be converted to homes, must also have been pervasive. The unloading of freight cars on the Town siding proceeded at a regular rate. A load of coal weighing 31,984 pounds was delivered on November 3, 1891: freight charge $9.60. Two days later, 192 feet of lumber weighing 600 pounds was unloaded: freight charge 30¢! Facing the Garrett Park station was the building now called Penn Place, but which was at that time called Hardesty and Crehan's store. The first telephone in Town was installed there in 1896, and according to the Montgomery Press, "the Park people have already begun to realize what a convenience it is and how it fills a long felt want." The Garrett Park Chapel (today's Town Hall) was opened in July 1897. The Montgomery Press had reported that the building was to cost $1,100, stating "we are anticipating a very pretentious building." We wouldn't agree with such a statement today, of course! By 1898 the Town had a solid architectural base with its Victorian homes. Trees were not as evident as they would become, although the planting of new ones went forward with considerable zeal. Today, people and buildings have increased tenfold, and there seems little more room for growth. The Town remains a small town, both in its size and atmosphere, much to our satisfaction and great pleasure. Garrett Park, MD 100 Years as a Community Apart By Eric Jay Dolin Thirty minutes from downtown Washington, D.C., in lower Montgomery County, Maryland, sits Garrett Park, one of the region's hidden treasures. Although this small, incorporated town of 358 homes is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year, many people in the area have never heard of it. They are missing something special. Whether you're looking for an architectural ramble, a leisurely stroll or ride along quiet, winding, heavily-wooded streets, or a bite to eat, Garrett Park is an excellent place to spend part of a carefree day. Nestled between Route 355 and Rock Creek Park, Garrett Park came into being in the late 1880s. A brochure at the time extolled the virtues of this new community, stating that it would "be the suburban town of the National Capital." In 1898, Garrett Park was incorporated in response to a controversy over sewage. At the time, waterborne typhoid was a major health concern. Fear of the disease led the citizens of Garrett Park to protest a one Mrs. Sprigg's indoor plumbing and associated cesspool which was seen as potential source of contamination to local wells. Responding to this concern, the town fathers incorporated and immediately passed an ordinance banning cesspools and requiring all residents to use "above-ground" privies. Mrs. Sprigg fought the ordinance in court, lost, and left town. Your visit to Garrett Park is best begun at Penn Place in the heart of "downtown," at the intersection of Waverly and Rokeby Avenues. Don't expect too much. Downtown consists of a small train station, The Garrett Park Cafe, town offices, a beauty salon, a market, a few other small businesses, and the Post Office. It is easily accessible by car, as well as by bike or foot. Penn Place is only 200 yards from the bike path in Rock Creek Park, and there is a pathway that connects the two. Since there is no home delivery of mail in Garrett Park, the Post Office is a social center, where residents empty their P.O. boxes, chat or read the town bulletin board. The cafe is a popular place, especially on weekends when bicycle, running, and walking groups take time for lunch, brunch, or dinner. With an unusual menu, featuring items such as seared rockfish with hunter style tomato sauce & chevre risotto, the cafe is also a great place to eat. Before you begin your tour, look across from the cafe for a boulder with a plaque which will tell you a bit of Garrett Park's history, including the town's placement on the National Register of Historic Places in 1975. Now, start out in whatever direction you choose. Don't worry, you won't get lost! In the late 1940s, all through streets, into and out of town, with the exception of Strathmore Avenue, were blocked off to reduce traffic. Thus, on both sides of Strathmore, which cuts Garrett Park in two, as long as you stay on the streets, you'll never leave town. You can't go too far, Garrett Park has only 4 miles of roads. You will immediately see why the town earns its official designation as an arboretum. Along every street are a great variety of trees, rare and common, short and tall, with some old giants rising well over one-hundred feet into the air. And don't just look at the trees. Most Garrett Parkers are avid gardeners, whose yards hold many pleasant surprises. The most unusual thing about Garrett Park are the houses. Unlike the architectural monotony that blights so many suburbs, in Garrett Park virtually every house is different. There are sprawling, brightly colored Victorians with turrets and spires reaching towards the sky, and beautiful wraparound porches. At the other end of the spectrum are the tiny Chevy Houses, built in the 1920s and so-named because they were originally sold with a brand new Chevrolet in the driveway (good examples can be found at 10926 Clermont Avenue and 4517 Clermont Place). Pick an architectural style and it is here -- colonial, ranch, bungalow, Swiss chalet, stone cottage, Cape Cod, Sear's Catalogue Farm House, and those that defy categorization. Do not restrict your tour of town to the Penn-Place side of Strathmore avenue. Go to the other side for some more beautiful houses, trees and gardens. There you will also find Town Hall, just off Strathmore on Kenilworth Avenue. Originally built in 1897 as a chapel, the hall is a beautiful building that is available to anyone for civic and social functions (for information on renting, call the Keeper of the Keys, Dolores Harris, at (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)). Because of the 100th anniversary of the town's incorporation, now is a great time to visit Garrett Park. Along Strathmore, signs placed in honor of the anniversary proudly proclaim interesting facts about the town's history. Here you will learn that Garrett Park became a Nuclear Free Zone in 1982 and an arboretum in 1977. If you time your visit right, you can participate in some of the Town's festivities, [including the Attic in the Street Sale, a Tree Walk, and Tours of Houses 100 years or older, all of them on different dates in October.] If you are looking for something different, unexpected, and relaxing, visit Garrett Park. You'll be surprised by what you see. Getting AroundYes! The town has it's own train station for the MARC (URL HIDDEN) and of course, the Grosvenor-Strathmore RED LINE Station for the METRO (URL HIDDEN)
