The space
Welcome to La Belle Vie, a secluded haven near the major hubs of Rockville, DC and Baltimore. The homey apartment offers everything you would want for either a weekend escape or a long-term stay. We have provided all you need to prepare your own meals including an air fryer and toaster oven, but if that's not your preference, there are numerous restaurants nearby to either enjoy in person or have delivered. There is a new high-speed Linksys wi-fi system to meet your business needs.

There is a lovely backyard with a patio that has several seating areas where you can enjoy sipping a cup of coffee in the morning, reading a book in the afternoon, having a cocktail while watching the sunset, or stargazing at night. We back up to an Agricultural reserve wooded area and there is abundant wildlife to spot, including nesting hawks, bluebirds and pileated woodpeckers. A small pond and waterfall adds to the tranquility of the backyard.

The bedroom has a luxurious king-sized bed fitted with ultra soft sheets and a fluffy down comforter in the winter and a light, cotton comforter in the warmer months. The large window offers abundant light, but also has blackout shades so you can slumber without distraction.

The family room/dining area is decorated as a library where you are invited to pick a book to read, play a board game, do a puzzle or watch TV. We have a smart TV and a Chromecast with G00gle TV. Whatever apps you have on your phone can be cast to the TV. The table pulls out to accommodate up to 4 guests or works well as a workstation. The apartment is suited for children aged 7 and above.

There are many walking paths or bike riding trails just next to our home and we are only a 6 mile drive from the Shady Grove metro station (Red Line). We are near several shopping centers and only 5 miles from I-270. There are 5 microbreweries, 2 wineries and a Cidery within a 2-20 mile radius.

La Belle Vie truly is a gem amidst the rolling hills and farmland of Montgomery County while only a short distance from the metropolitan hubbub of the DC/Baltimore area.
