We're had had temporarily to put the suite to other uses because my wife was partially immobilized because of nasty basketball-induced injuries she played varsity university here in Virginia, but also professionally across Europe) on her ankle. We she is getting pretty-nearly mobilized now, so we're offering this marvelous suite in the very nearest future.

If you're interested in exploring possibilities for this gem, please note – the very last lines of this listing – our request also for more information from/about you as you ask any of your questions for us.

As we as nation and region are winning but still fighting the aggressive attacks by Covid-19, all of us here are already vaccinated. We must insist that any adult guest wishing to be considered to join with us be already vaccinated, with those vaccinations already “effective.” This home is Covid-free - we shall stay that way.

So, let us hear, including the information necessary for us as explained at the end of this item....

Our huge two-bedroom wonderfully-furnished Garden Suite, is the only lodging on that entire floor in our huge historic home. So it's super-private. Even has its own private entrance into the home (see the photos).

In the home, there are other highly-educated guests, but all the lodgings are separate and "private."

• AGAIN, IT’S A HUGE TWO-BEDROOM GARDEN SUITE – Available from SOONEST. Too many listings on CL that state that the offering is for "two bedrooms," but their realities are that each of those listings is offering, within a two-bedroom apartment, only one bedroom as available. Not this one. It's a full 800+ sq-ft two-bedroom suite with historic queen bed in the huge bedroom, a near-queen bed in the still-large-but-smaller "barn-board" room, love seat, two desks, two closets, and large ensuite bathroom that has its own multi-person deluxe Jacuzzi. Direct access onto our South Lawn and Patio.

I've tried to have one of the photos register some additional flexibility. The Barnboard Room is currently configured with one single (real wild cherry) bed, with still there a huge set-up-as-long-couch futon, but we can have it be TWO cherry single beds, or the futon, folded down, makes a marvelously-firm almost-queen bed.

Fee: $1,750/month for eight months and more, with that fee for up to two adult guests. For guests who will stay with us for periods of four to eight months, fee level will be $1,950/month. In any case, we strongly prefer guests who stay with us four months and more. For shorter stays, IF we can work them with you, we shall have to recalculate the monthly fee level. Once we jointly agree on a duration of the stay, we change that part of the agreement only via mutual approval. In addition, our hosting more than two adult guests in our Garden Suite will have us do - if just for increases in utilities, etc, small increase in the monthly fee.

Finally, as that point is a narrowing of our traditional policies, we are taking the for-us-historical/for-you-beneficial step of lowering our fees to our lowest level. Our Garden Suite, for years pre-Coronavirus, carried fees well above $2,150 and higher. Our fee now seriously reduced.

Close to EVERYTHING! We're within half a block of America's favorite Farmers' Market, within about four blocks of about a dozen wonderful restaurants (all while we're on a quiet wooded street), 0.7 mile (takes 12 minutes to walk) from East Falls Metro - straight shot downtown and more, short walk to Harris-Teeter and an Aldi’s, easy trips to TWO Trader Joe's, and a lot more.

What we do with this huge historic home is host folks we call "Professionals in Transition," who are mostly those coming here on some sort of training or transfer, and who want a wonderful fully-furnished place to stay.

But others who join us are on special projects, or refurbishing their on local homes, and a lot more.

We do accept guests with children, for which our Suite can be perfect. If you have children who will be with you, tell us about them – age(s), gender(s), schooling needs, etc.

We cannot accept "pets of guests." We do have here – two Great Danes – an older female and a nine-month-old “puppy." They stay far away from the Garden Suite, up in our Master Suite and in our fenced large South Yard.

NO smoking. Even "off campus, away from the house."

Plenty of Free Parking.

Home fully Top-Capacity FiOS WiFi, included. All utilities included. In-home Maytag Centennial Washer and Dryer. Lodging comes with an iron and ironing board, all towels, sheets, and blankets provided. Even a far-infrared Sauna, which if far more healthful for people than even the traditional old-style fuel-burning saunas.

When you write to us, we can provide a lot more detailed information on the Home, the Suite, and even on us.

The other folks in the home are very well educated, internationalized (host and hostess have lived/worked all over the world), and active....

So, let us hear more about you, your needs, your interests, activities, assignment/work, who might be with you, and your timing(s).
