  • Amazing Homes and Host!


    We rented this house for our daughter’s graduation so our whole family could stay together and I’m so glad glad we did! The house is amazing, huge and has everything you need! We had 18 total and there was more than enough space and comfy beds. The kitchen is very well equipped and had everything I needed to just a grad lunch for our entire family which was way better than going out to eat. The covered parking and fabulous front porch allowed us to spend time outside even in the rain. We spent most of our time on that front porch or the gorgeous sun room.

    The house was also extremely clean and well organized. We even had folding chairs and games for the kids. We had the privilege of meeting the own Susan who is just lovely. Super friendly, responsive and helpful!

    Highly recommend this home and host!! We’ll be back in 2 years for my daughters masters graduation and would love to rent this house again (if not sooner!!)

  • 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.
