The SpacePERFECT FOR INTERNS, GRAD STUDENTS! Our single family home is located in a quiet, tight knit, professional, family oriented cul-de-sac that backs to wooded walking/biking trails (Pohick Regional Park) that eventually lead to the trails along Fairfax County Parkway and into Alexandria, Virginia. Grocery stores (Trader Joe's, Giant, Safeway, Whole Foods) and other retail stores are located within 1-3 miles away from the house.
Rent is inclusive of all utilities, internet, cable service (there is an extra fee for renting movies through the Fios Account), however, you will have access to a NetFlix account (without charge).
We are presently offering a master suite with the adjoining living area in our walkout basement. The master suite and living area comfortably accommodates 1-2 people. Separate living area is spacious, furnished with a comfy love seat, kitchenette with coffee bar (coffee maker, coffee, teas, sugar are all provided), microwave to heat up a quick meal and snacks. We've stocked the mini-fridge with water for our guests.
At the end of the day, walk out to your own furnished deck - perfect for relaxing, taking in nature after meetings in town or a long day of sight seeing!
The master suite has a separate seating area within the room. Private bath comes with the master suite, so no sharing necessary!
The space is perfect for commuters/business travelers and National Guard up for monthly weekend drills looking for an affordable, cozy, family environment instead of the normal, bland hotel. The house is only a 5 minute walk to the commuter bus that goes to the Springfield/Franconia Metro station (Blue and Yellow lines).
Door-to-door to the Pentagon is roughly no more than 25 minutes. Fort Belvoir is a quick 15 minute drive.
The space is also ideal for out-of-towners visiting family nearby, students (medical students on internship/grad students/students waiting for housing to become available), sight-seers wishing to explore the NOVA/DC area.
Common areas in our home that you are welcome to use include our powder room on the main level, Kitchen/Kitchen Nook area, dining room (directly off the kitchen) and washer/dryer. Guest AccessWe will make every effort to be home and welcome you upon your arrival. If for some reason our times do not work out for greeting you, I have a lock box to let yourself in the house.
Please use the front door for coming and going. Interaction with GuestsAs much or as little as you desire.
Prior to your visit, I am available to chat about your pending visit via email and/or phone.
During your stay, we will provide you with information on local restaurants, shopping, sites, etc. Just ask! If you notify me two to three days ahead of your arrival, I'll be happy to compile whatever information you may need. The NeighborhoodRidge Road Estates is a quiet suburban neighborhood filled with close knit, professional families. The neighborhood is friendly, very quiet, chalk-full of nature, relaxing and secure. We back to the Pohick Park, so there's lots of trees, shade and local wildlife (from the chirping birds to the deer that roam behind our back fence).
Spacious, comfy, quiet, private suite that's minutes from the Metro. Extremely easy access to restaurants and shopping, 30 minutes to the Smithsonian as well as other hot spots in the area. Easy access to where you want to be, with quiet, safe homey feel of the suburbs!
There's plenty of parking in the neighborhood and right in front of the house. Getting AroundThe house is located only a 5 minute walk to a commuter/metro bus stop that will take you to the Springfield/Franconia Metro (Blue/Yellow Lines).
Once you're on the Metro, it's only 20 minutes via Metro to the National Mall and Smithsonian.
Our home is quite close to many destinations through Metro, but we are in the suburbs. Extremely easy to get around, but it is better to have a car. Best and closest car rental place is within 3 miles: Enterprise (they will pick you up at the house! Love these guys!)

26 miles from Dulles International Airport; 19 miles from National Airport; 4 miles from new Springfield Town Center (shopping, movie theaters, restaurants - brand new - gorgeous new mall!) ; 18 miles to Tysons Corner; 15 miles to Old Town Alexandria; 22 miles to Reston Town Center; 20 miles from Washington D.C.
Other areas/sites of interest within 15 miles or less: Mount Vernon, Burke Lake (canoes, paddle boats, hiking, fishing), Clifton Virginia, Fair Oaks Mall, Vienna, Kennedy Center, Arlington, Fort Myers, Fort Belvoir, Sport Rock Climbing facility (tons of fun to hit the climbing walls!).
Some great wineries are also within an hour or so of the house! Other Things to NotePlease respect our home and understand the third floor is off limits to guests. This is our private living space.
Our dogs will be upstairs during the day, please leave them in their space when we are not home.
