Six of us stayed at The Grove House for a weekend December 9-11. It was better than we could have expected. First off the location for our needs was perfect. Really easy to find which is nice, but more importantly the privacy is fantastic. Having ample and secure parking was also a huge benefit. We walked in and our draws dropped. Every detail is considered in this home and it shows. I should also note that the television in the pictures has been replaced by one about 3x the size. It was a great place to congregate in the evening, which is what we wanted versus being cooped up in hotel rooms.
The provisions in the home were second to none. We arrived to a bottle of wine, cheese and crackers, cinnamon rolls, bagels, fresh fruit, and orange juice. WHO DOES THAT? Deb does, that's who! Check-in was a breeze as we had the code to enter upon arrival. We had two cars which fit perfectly, and my father had run out of washer fluid on the drive and had popped his hood. Deb stopped by to make sure everything was ok with the home and with our car. We spent the day Saturday at the Army-Navy football game in Baltimore, a 45-minute drive from the home. Deb sent me a text that day checking to see if everything was ok. I told her we were great, and mentioned how cold we were at the football game. We returned to the home that evening at Deb brought hot chocolate for us. Again, WHO DOES THAT? Deb does, that's who!!
If your travels take you to the Frederick area, do not miss the opportunity to stay in this home. It has everything that you need and even stuff you did not think you would. And just when I thought it couldn't be any better, on the drive home I get a text from Deb with a picture of a pair of boots that one of the guys in our party left behind. She is mailing them back to us. WHO DOES THAT? Deb does, that's who! This property is exactly as it is described in the listing and is very clean and very well-maintained. I would highly recommend a stay here.
A sisters trip to Maryland brought us to the Grove House rental. It was a wonderful experience from the welcome wine, fruit and breakfast items to the most beautiful bedrooms with the most comfortable beds that we have ever been in. All three sisters agree that we will be back!!!
Stayed here for a bachelorette wine weekend and it was the perfect place for us to be....clean and comfortable! Lots of breakable decorations around so we hid some things in a closet for the weekend just to be safe. Beds were comfy and there was plenty of space for the 8 of us. We managed well with one bathroom for 8 women but it would have been nice to have a second...even if it was a parlor room. Coffee machine was broken when we got there and when I told Deb about it she had a family member bring a different one over right away and it worked great! Deb was so accommodating and welcoming. All 8 of us said we would definitely stay here again!
We could not have been more comfortable. The cottage was warm and inviting and our every need was met. The WIFI glitch was only a small inconvenience. I have used several VRBO residences and have never been in one so well stocked.
We loved this property! Everything about it felt well-put-together. Very luxurious, private, and relaxing. We enjoyed traveling to Frederick and checking out the parks and shopping!
This is my first experience with HomeAway and I must say I was blown away. We had an amazing time at the Grove Guest House. The description could not have matched the house better. The GPS found it perfectly which was nice. Before we even got there, Deb had been communicating with me every detail we would need to know down to where the lights were located and what was near us for entertainment. When we got there, there was wine, cheese, crackers, orange juice, coffee, tea, bagels, cream cheese, cinnamon buns, etc. I could not believe how amazing this was already and it just got better. The house is decorated beautifully. There were 4 good size bedrooms and a fully furnished kitchen. The property is just absolutely breath taking. The pool and hot tub were just the cherry on top. There was full tv and movies, wifi, and plenty of parking. I really don't have anything bad to say. She stocked the bathroom with shampoo and conditioner. Laundry soap, dish soap, hand soap, towels, pillows, linens were all included. There were games in the library. Deb was absolutely so kind. When we went in the hot tub the first night she came out and put music on for us. She gave us suggestions for food when we asked.
I wish we were able to spend more time there. We will definitely be back when we visit D.C.! Thank you Deb!!
