Great house perfect for our trip

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a Girl Scout troop trip to Washington DC. We had 6 girls who were 12-13 years old and 2 adults. There are plenty of sleeping areas but no one wanted to sleep downstairs where there the 2 futons are located. The house worked out perfectly for us. The bathrooms are upstairs which could be a drawback for some but it was fine for us. We enjoyed the large dining room table and kitchen. The house had character and was beautifully renovated and decorated. We walked to the metro every day . It is only about a 10 minute walk and is straight down the street. The metro does close at dark at the fort trotten stop so you can't depend on it at night. There is parking in back but please note it is narrow and you might have to back it in if you have a large vehicle such as the 12 passenger van we had. Sherman was very helpful and responsive. We appreciated having the house to keep us all under one roof and let everyone relax every night after some very busy days! Thank you for being great hosts.

A nice place near Washington D.C.

  • 3 of 5

The 3 bedroom home was very clean and well-maintained. The beds were comfortable but the futons in the living room weren't ideal for sleeping. There were window air conditioners in each of the bedrooms and another on the main floor that kept the house at a comfortable temperature during a very hot week. The appliances appear to be new and are in good condition. There are two full bathrooms on the 2nd floor and plenty of hot water for showers for our group.

There was space behind the house to park two cars but it was a tight squeeze. The yard is small.

We were walking distance (about half a mile) from the Metro which was very convenient for sight-seeing in D.C. There was a Wal-Mart about 1 mile away to pick up groceries.

Great Family Place

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay! We had three teenagers and the place and location were a perfect fit for our DC vacation. The house is close to a Metro station and we were able to get around the city with ease. We were able to cook some meals which saved money on eating out. The house was immaculate and Sherman was very helpful.

Clean, comfortable and convenient home!

  • 4 of 5

We were immediately impressed with how clean this home was upon check-in! It provided everything we needed in the kitchen, plenty of linens and seemed to be well taken care of. We loved the character of the home with its pretty wood floors, big wood dining table and updated kitchen. Our only small issue was that the futons in the family room were not comfortable to sleep on. Otherwise, I would highly recommend this home to anyone. Very conveniently located, close to area attractions.

Nice DC location.

  • 5 of 5

The location was great and the property fit the needs of our family. The next door neighbor was very friendly. The futon/couch was not very comfortable for sitting but worked well as an extra bed. Sherman was very accommodating and answered all my emails very promptly, which was great as a first time VRBO renter.

Awesome home base for visiting DC!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a 5 day 4 night stay in DC. The Gallatin proved to be a great spot to have as a home base for both touring DC and the wedding we attended at the Bolger Center in Maryland. Having the off-street parking in the back was very helpful and the Metro was a five minute walk. The townhouse was fully provisioned and very spacious. Seven of us vacationed at the townhouse and we were never tripping over each other. We had our coffee on the front porch and the neighbors were gracious and welcoming. The only draw back for us was that both bathrooms were on the second floor and that proved challenging for one of my sisters who has difficulty with stairs. Sherman was a delight to deal with and very responsive. The place was not only a great VALUE but also a delightful housing situation.
