While visiting, working or studying in the DC, area, your group can stay in our comfortable, well-maintained home located in downtown Silver Spring instead of an impersonal hotel. One room has a full size bed and the other has a trundle bed with two twins that can also be made up as a king. Both rooms have desks as well as closet and drawer space available. There is a full bath in the hall that will only be used by guests in these 2 rooms. This is a homestay not a private apartment.

AIRP residents are very welcome! We have had several groups stay with us while attending the AIRP class at AFI Theatre--read the reviews. They appreciate the close proximity to class and the quiet comfort we offer for studying, preparing meals and relaxing. We appreciate the U.S. and international acquaintances we've made as their hosts.

This is a HomeShare BnB—with us, not a separate, private guest home or apartment. Please tell us during your stay if we can help make your experience more comfortable or pleasant. Common courtesies and cordial interaction are expected. Guests usually have the kitchen to themselves in the morning and we try to coordinate our dinner so everyone has kitchen access to prepare an evening meal at a reasonable time.
Our Spring-Park home is in an urban and eclectic neighborhood at the nexus DC, Silver Spring and Takoma Park. Two Redline Metro stations are one-mile away--Takoma & Silver Spring. Our community is family oriented and quiet but with all the urban resources you need to easily shop, dine-out, see a movie and more, all within walking distance. We are also walking distance to a tranquil, woodsy park with a lovely hike/bike/jog trail along a creek.
We are a mile from 2 Metro stations and one-half block from a bus stop. While you can get by easily without a car we also offer free parking. The neighborhood is very bike/walkable and transit is nearby but there is a car rental office nearby as well as hourly carshares at the metro stations. You will find this a convenient location from which to see the sites, work or study.
We have 2 cats and are registered to foster dogs, so if you are allergic, this is not the place for you. We don't currently have a dog but have applied to foster dogs brought to the area from high-kill states for future adoption. There may be a dog here during your stay and it may be hard to know very far in advance. It would be best if all guests are comfortable with dogs and cats.
Be courteous and respectful of other guests, neighbors, us and our home. Otherwise we prefer to not have to enforce "rules." Universal acts of kindness, consideration and cooperation by hosts and guests are key to a successful home-stay experience.

We have lived and raised our children in this eclectic part of the DC Metro area for 30+ years and will never discriminate against any person or group. We are self-employed, creative professionals and work from our home. Our B&B home and separate guesthouse are at the nexus of DC, Silver Spring, and Takoma Park Maryland.
We have enjoyed the acquaintances we've made in our 6+ years of hosting travelers and have over 100 positive reviews. Here are clips from some of our 5-star reviews: “Gail and Danny were absolutely GREAT! They were very helpful getting situated in the house. Gail was kind enough to pick me up from the metro station on the first day"…"The place is very conveniently located near the Silver Spring downtown, close to metro, restaurants, gyms, convenience stores"…."Danny and Gail were attentive while allowing us privacy and freedom to come and go as needed"…"We loved the casual and comfortable surroundings and the personalities of our hosts"…."My best [B&B] experience so far !!! This place is great, especially if you're an AIRP attendee ! :)" ..."This was truly a home away from home. If i ever go back to DC, I know where I'm heading." …"The house was lovely and exactly as listed, and the neighbourhood was safe, welcoming, and a short walk from anything you could possibly need"…"Their place was clean, cosy and comfortable. Plus, I had no trouble commuting into DC every day and I felt safe in the area around their house"…."The kitchen has a lot of room for cooking and it's always clean as well. It was actually a little sad to leave"…."This experience in [street name] avenue is one of those which we wont forget. The house is clean, cozy, and somehow unique and authentic"…."Better than expected: the house is big, cute, cosy, cleaned and you have everything you need. They are always trying to help you and are so respectful….” If you're new to the HomeStay concept, you will be "living with" others like you might connect with friends or family only possibly with more consideration. If you are looking for a cheap hotel we encourage you to consider our guest home listing, instead, where your group will have the entire house to yourselves.
We enjoy sailing, hiking, skiing and biking. Ask us about the trips we offer to Annapolis and sailing on the Chesapeake Bay. We're avid travelers and enjoy insights on other cultures, languages, cuisines and adventures.
Now that you know something about us, PLEASE give us the courtesy of sharing information about yourself, your group, and the purpose of your trip when contacting us about availability.
