Why Maria or Andrew Robertson chose Silver Spring
Quite setting in one of Silver Springs most beautiful, old, single home neighborhoods but close to the metro, buses and downtown silver spring. Great for those traveling for work or pleasure. Few rented rooms have their own bathroom inside the room and private entrance. We are available to help you and address any issues that may arise immediately. There will not be other quests in the house.

100% refund for cancellations more than 30 days before check-in date. 50% refund for cancellations more than 14 days before check-in date.
Proximity to downtown Silver Spring is advantage
The location is good for someone who doesn't want to drive. However, the room is not spacious enough for us. We had several suitcases.
Cozy bedroom-bath in lovely neighborhood. Exemplary host.
The place was exactly what I needed and Maria was a very thorough and thoughtful host. The bedroom and bathroom were comfortable and spotless. Would definitely stay here again when visiting my Silver Spring based son.
Comfortable Stay in Silver Spring
Maria and Andrew were such nice and welcoming people. My stay felt less like a sublet and more like I was at home. Room has all the amenities you need. I was in town for a month long conference and Maria and Andrew made sure to help me out if I needed anything. They bought a brand new office chair for the place, provided me with toothpaste (my friends at other places had to get their own), re-stocked towels before I ran out, etc. If your program reimburses you enough staying here is a no-brainer for AIRP <5 min drive and 20 min walk to the AFI Theater. If you are visiting DMV for a weekend they are right by public transit and parking in Silver Spring is free on the weekend making it simple to get to DC and back using transit, again no-brainer.
Nice room and walking distance to town
This was well worth the money and you couldn't ask for better hosts. I hope to go back soon.
Beautiful private room with porch in the wooded suburb
What a lovely experience it was to stay in Maria and Andrew's VRBO site. I was visiting my son and his family, with two rambunctious girls and two dogs, and thought a retreat along the way would be a great choice. My room was very comfortable and had both a room heater and window air conditioner, so the temp was pleasant. The view from the front stoop where I had my morning coffee and evening glass of wine was delightful - azaelas bloomed in every shade of pink and cardinals and robins were nesting in the surrounding trees. This site is a 15 minute walk into town and a 10 minute walk to Sligo park and the creek. The Whole Foods served my needs to a "T". Overall this was an excellent experience.
Perfect stay in Silver Spring
Loved my stay. The location was close to downtown Silver Spring, MD where my friend lived. Room was perfect and my hosts had everything I needed for my stay including internet. The bed was very comfortable and the room was cheerful. Would definitely stay here again when I’m in town.
