We bought a Living Social deal and upgraded to a cottage so we could bring our dogs. The cottage was perfect. Nice king size bed, jetted tub, fireplace, great view. They even had dog bowls, a towel and waste bags laid out for us. We had a wonderful meal the first night in their dining room. Only $45 for a three course meal- you cannot get that kind of quality for that price in DC. The next day my husband got a neck and shoulder massage at their spa and loved it. Both days we were served a delicious breakfast. The service we received from absolutely everyone was beyond superb. It was sort of like being on a first class cruise but with exquisite grounds thrown in. We actually plan to go back for our anniversary in June. Hillbrook was the perfect getaway for us.
