Neptune's Bungalow

Charming wood bungalow on a wooded creek in Takoma Park's Between the Creeks neighborhood.

Our house:
- is a 3 bedroom bungalow on wooded lot that backs up to a creek with 30 miles of paved walking/running/biking trail;

- has a well equipped kitchen, wifi, good light, and great neighbors;

-has a cozy front porch, lighted outdoor seating and charcoal grill in back;

-has ample, free, street parking, and is close to bus, University of Maryland shuttle, bike share, and a short bike ride or 20 minute walk to the metro. (We don't have a car and we get around fine with our own bikes and the occasional Lyft into town.)

-is walking distance to Old Takoma, with a weekly farmers market, local restaurants and shops and several summer festivals.

-is a 20 minute Metro ride to the National Mall and Smithsonian museums.

We would be happy to offer a discounted rate if you would consider keeping Cinder and Larry, our two indoor cats!

About Me
Hi, We're Kristin and Rich. We live in Takoma Park with our 16 year old son and 12 year old daughter. Rich is an Aquatic Ecologist with the US Forest Service and Kristin is a University of Maryland student studying insect ecology. We travel a lot for field work in the summer and take occasional shorter trips during the academic year. We have a shy cat named Cinder, a wiley cat in a tuxedo, Larry Potter, and the best dog in the world, Neptune, who sometime come with, and sometimes need company to hang out with while we're away.
