About Linda Baker

Michael enjoys gardening and works to improve public transportation, walking, and cycling worldwide. Linda is a writer and translator.

Linda Baker purchased this house in 1996

Why Linda Baker chose Chevy Chase

This is a marvelous home and we feel lucky to live in it. We've taken special care to organize it so we can share our space with you when we're away and for you to feel like you have a comfortable place to call your own here. You'll find ample closet space, fresh towels and sheets, a fully-stocked cook's kitchen, and gym with new high quality exercise equipment. Easy access to metro and buses, three bikes in the garage, and a car available to rent while you're here will enable you to get anywhere you want. American University, the National Institutes for Health and Naval Medical Center, and National Cathedral are all a short distance away.

What makes this house unique

Visitors to our home are often say it's a bit like visiting an art gallery, with lovely prints and objects from around the world. Enjoy the park 4 doors down the street with free tennis courts, playing fields, and great places to stroll or look at the stars. You won't believe you're inside the Beltway and a close walk to 250 restaurants, theaters, and world class shopping. The main sounds we hear outside are children playing and birds singing. The nearest busy road, Wisconsin Avenue, where you can catch the bus, is two blocks away. Come to see the cherry blossoms in front of our house, along our streets, and most spectacularly, in world-famous Kenwood, a 5 minute walk away.

Great house - great location!

We loved staying in this beautiful house. The owner was very responsive and well organized and this was reflected in the condition of the house.
If we were to visit the Washington D.C. area again, we would not hesitate to stay here again!

Elegant, spacious, and beautifully furnished.

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed here for a week for our son's wedding. There were 5 adults and a 2-yr-old enjoying the home. The home was charming and very comfortable. The kitchen is large, modern and highly functional. The deck is wonderful for outside entertaining; the bedrooms are comfortable. It is not only in a quiet cul-de-sac, but 100 yds from a park with a playground that delighted our grandson. The home was better than advertised - all the amenities were modern and made our stay easy. The owners provide excellent information and instructions on all the features of the home. It is in walking distance to excellent restaurants and shopping, including a pharmacy and two supermarkets, in Bethesda. We recommend it without hesitation and would happily stay there again.

A great time in the city!

  • 5 out of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The house was just as described--very large with ample room for us to spread out and relax, and a great kitchen! It's an easy metro ride into DC, but we also took advantage of the fabulous bike path it is on (the Capitol Crescent Trail) and used Linda and Michael's bikes to ride into Georgetown. Linda and Michael were terrific hosts!
