About 70 miles east of Washington, D.C., lies another Washington - a town of only about 200 residents that is a far cry from the bustling streets of the nation's capitol, but offers its own brand of historic charm and tourist attractions. Among the popular areas in Arlington, the town of Washington invites newcomers with its quaint and walkable streets, natural beauty and intimate community. This town traces its history to 1749, when it was surveyed by George Washington himself. Today, homes for rent in Washington place residents in an area that is appreciated as much for its small, old-fashioned atmosphere as for its cultural attractions that continually draw Washington, D.C. elites. Rentals in this picturesque stretch help residents achieve a leisurely lifestyle that benefits from the cultural and natural aspects of a rich and historic region of the country.
Many houses for rent in Washington, Virginia, are settled near the town's most famous landmark The Inn at Little Washington.

Outdoor recreation is a strength of the Washington area, which offers cycling tours through the countryside, hiking and horseback riding in Shenandoah National Park, canoeing on the Shenandoah River, and fly fishing in the nearby valleys. Homes for rent in Washington also position renters near a cluster of wineries and vineyards, which helped Virginia achieve a spot on Wine Enthusiast Magazine's top 10 destinations in 2012. Little Washington Winery and Gadino Cellars are the closest of about a dozen places to enjoy tours and sip on a glass of wine, straight from the vine.
