  • Perfect in every way!


    10 adult stay for an 80th birthday celebration.

    The yard, stream and the house are beautiful.

    Plenty of rooms for everybody..

    High quality furnishings throughout.

    Best location in Damascus, you can walk to anything.

    Everybody was a coffee drinker. I asked the owner for another coffee maker so we would have to one for caffeinated and 1 for decaf. Susan had one on the door step for us in the morning! The owners really want you to be happy.

  • Great property for a big group!


    We had a group of 12 adults and this beautiful craftsman house was perfect for entertaining a large group. The upstairs has been remodeled so the floor plan works even better than the existing photos show. We had happy hours around the fire pit, back deck and front porch. There are 2 refrigerators.

    The upstairs has a loft with 3 twins, a communal living room with TV and 3 spacious bedrooms (king room, queen with 2 twins and a queen).

    The multi bedroom is ensuite with separate access, no porch furniture when we stayed. The other two bedrooms have access to a full bath and a half bath.

    Downstairs is a queen room with living room and TV, separate access from the back deck. It shares a full bath with another queen room. The front bedroom adjacent to the large living room shares an enormous bathroom with another queen room. The front bedroom is on one end of the huge house and the bathroom is at the other end. While it is certainly worth the walk, it may not be suitable for someone with mobility problems. Everyone loved their rooms and thought the house was a lot of fun.

    There is also a bonus room between the large dining room and the kitchen that is used as a study. We used it to set up a puzzle and it was huge hit.

    The location is the best in town. A bike shop is a couple properties down, the AT comes through the front sidewalk and everything is walkable. Laurel Creek is right behind the fire pit and comes with a few ducks. Extra parking is right in front of the house. We highly recommend this rental for large families or group of friends.

  • amazing weekend!


    We had a wonderful time at your home. We traveled to Damascus to do the Creeper trail with some friends from college and their families. There were 13 of us total, 6 adults and 7 kids ages 1.5-8. We had an AMAZING TIME! The house was so spacious, we all had plenty of room to spread out. The kids spent a lot of time by the creek while we hung out around the fire pit. The house was very clean and well equipped with anything you might need and the beds were VERY comfortable! The power went out due to a random storm and the owners had someone drop by lanterns and glow sticks for the kids. It was so thoughtful! We also really enjoyed being walking distance from local stores, a delicious coffee shop, and diner. I would highly recommend this home, we hope to travel back again sometime!

  • Fabulous experience!


    Everything was wonderful. The owners went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable. We especially appreciate the games, cards, puzzles and extra entertainment choices for our little ones. Clean, spacious, and even extra kitchen supplies.

  • Amazing home & wonderful hostess!


    I booked this amazing Damascus home for our daughter’s travel softball team and our families. We checked into the biggest, most accommodating retreat any of us could imagine. We were all super impressed with the cleanliness, sleeping accommodations, and things at the house available for our use. The thoughtfulness of Susan is far beyond anything I’ve ever experienced. She checked in with me a couple days before we arrived to offer ideas for things to do and make sure the house was adequately equipped with anything we would need. I prepared two meals for 20 people with no problem. Marshmallow roasting sticks? Provided. Marshmallows for roasting? Provided. Heavenly creek for wading? On site. Ample parking, thoughtful touches, amazing communication… I can’t say enough good things. Our girls and our families were all so impressed and loved every second of our stay. Susan, thank you so much. My youngest also wants to express her thanks for the house smelling like pumpkin spice- she loved it.
