  • Most wonderful house in a great location


    We have a large group of women that travel to Damascus every year to bike to Abington. We have done this for the last 12 years and we have found the most perfect house for us. It is very well kept and the owner is very nice and accommodating. Sitting by the fire by the creek was fantastic.

  • Great place for multiple family gathering!


    Three families got together this weekend, and this was a great home to accommodate the crowd. With six adults and eight kids, we had plenty of space for a comfortable weekend of catching up. Susan was helpful with providing tips for what to do with the group of kiddos and added lovely touches like marshmallows for toasting and lots of game and coloring options. The home was well stocked and provided a place for an epic game of hide and seek. We enjoyed time at the creek, shopping at the farmers’ market, and a swimming pool that was within walking distance.

  • 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.
