Palisades Village

Vacation Condos for Rent and Villas In Washington DC - Near Palisades Village

Tucked away in Northwest DC, the Palisades is a picturesque neighborhood on the Potomac River known for its tree-lined streets and small-town character. The neighborhood was originally developed around a street-car line that ran along the Potomac River and connected Georgetown with Glen Echo, Maryland. As the residential benefits of the area grew, the neighborhood became a permanent stop for urban commuters. Homes, schools, and estates soon began to populate the landscape. Post-war residents crafted a neighborhood that had suburban appeal and retained its natural riverside beauty. The echo of this community planning can still be felt  

 

Today, the neighborhood where our Vacation condos for rent in Washington DC are situated allows residents and travelers alike easy access to nature and the outdoors along the historic C&O Canal and Fletcher’s Cove Boathouse (kayak, rowboat, canoe and bike rentals), the Capital Crescent Bike Trail and miles of verdant woods with a creek and hiking trails in Battery Kemble Park. All of this and more you'll find near our amazing Palisades Village villas in Washington DC - making this the perfect place to stay!

 

The cherry tree lined MacArthur Boulevard runs directly through the Palisades and is dotted with a variety of businesses. You’ll find yoga studios, coffee houses, a farmers market, upscale consignment and other shops nestled next to sushi, Middle Eastern, American and Belgian restaurants. Conventional necessities such as supermarkets, pharmacies, the US Post Office, and banks are all on the boulevard, too and give the neighborhood a self-sufficient feel. The city’s Metro Buses service the Palisades with direct routes to downtown DC and the National Mall (11 Smithsonian Museums) along with the closest Metro Rail stations and upscale shopping centers. The blend of natural beauty, cozy appeal, and close proximity to downtown DC makes the Palisades neighborhood one of the city’s best-kept secrets. Trust us; our Villas in Washington DC have it all!
