Situated on the east shore of the Potomac River, the leafy enclave of Bethesda, Cabin John, and Glen Echo creates an upscale residential retreat. These community-centric neighborhoods offer a little something for everyone, from wooded trails and verdant parks to stylish boutiques and art classes. Just minutes from DC, by either car or Metro, this suburban triangle provides a respite from busy city life, while maintaining an air of chic urbanity.
Bethesda, with its wide streets and sprawling properties, feels much farther from DC than a mere seven miles. Combining the serenity of a small town with the high energy of a thriving metropolis, Bethesda offers a vibrant downtown scene and luxe shopping at Bethesda Row. Nestled between Bethesda and the river, Glen Echo is a little slice of suburban heaven. Founded in 1904, this quiet town evokes a sense of history at every corner. From cozy modern cabins and beautifully restored pre-Civil War homes to sprawling new construction builds and stunning mid-century designs that take full advantage of the gorgeous landscape, Glen Echo proves small-town living can be just as chic as city life. Neighboring Cabin John continues the lush paradisiacal feel, with leafy charm and a vibrant community. Rumor has it the name comes from a misspelling of “captain,” – and who is the eponymous captain in question? Possibly Captain John Smith, founder of Jamestown and the first person to map the Potomac River, right near today’s Cabin John.
