City Guide

Cascades
While not technically a city, Cascades is a bustling community that was built beneath a canopy of old growth trees in 1989. Nestled along the Potomac River, the Loudon County community of Cascades combines natural beauty with homespun values and easy access to DC.
While not technically a city, Cascades is a bustling community that was built beneath a canopy of old growth trees in 1989. Nestled along the Potomac River, the Loudon County community of Cascades combines natural beauty with homespun values and easy access to DC.

Welcome to Cascades, where life is as beautiful as the name suggests. Growth flourished in this community during the .com boom of the 1990's and Cascades quickly became known for its natural charm and close-knit population. The area is now home to 11,912 people. A planned community, Cascades is a popular neighborhood for folks looking to live near enough to the bustling Washington, DC greater metropolitan area without losing the rural beauty of Virginia.

Moving to Cascades

What Exactly Does It Mean to Be a "Planned Community"?

For starters, you won't find too many rental houses that date back any earlier than the 1990's. In fact, over 91% of housing units were built after 1990. This means pads are in move-in condition. If you want something with a bit of character, though, don't worry. This doesn't mean that Cascades lacks the architectural charm for which much of the surrounding area is known. Built in impressive colonial style, Cascades offers both nice townhouses for rent as well as house rentals. Among the benefits offered by a planned community is a neighborhood with an intuitive road system that provides easy access to shopping, eateries and entertainment venues. Hiking trails, bike paths and running corridors fit seamlessly into the layout of Cascades. This neighborhood might just be the perfect integration of suburban amenities and natural environs.

Expect a Competitive Rental Market

There's no doubt that Cascades is a thriving community and a beautiful place to live. Conveniently located just north of Route 7, Cascades offers proximity to Sterling, the Dulles Airport and the Dulles Corridor region. Yet such a prime location comes at a price: you won't be the only one looking for rental housing in Cascades. Plan roughly one to two months ahead and consider working with a realtor that knows the real estate market here. Only 21.5% of the community's properties are being leased, which means your search won't be without some difficulty. Also, note that coming in the summer offers you the most selection, but there still aren't tons of openings. Hence, now is not the time to be fussy about asking for help. While Cascades isn't the most competitive rental market, it is a community on the rise. Treat your search seriously and you'll come out a winner.

Are You Looking for a Closet to Call Your Home?

You may have to search quite hard. Concrete apartment buildings with studio, 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments for rent aren't too common on the housing menu here. There isn't much that's quaint or homespun about concrete. With that said, if you want a 1 bedroom apartment or condo, you can get it; roughly 4.2% of units are one bedroom homes. However, spacious town homes with multiple rooms and lots of light are you best option.

Get Ready for the Contract

Be ready for a credit and background check. Make copies of your ID and provide your social security number. Provide landlord references. Write a check for two months' rent. Put down a deposit. Now, you know: this process is thorough. Once you finish it, sign the contract. The place is yours.

Get Ready for the Amenities

The Cascades Community Association offers a variety of extras beloved by the residents of Cascades. They maintain 15 tennis courts, 10 multipurpose courts, a separate bocce court and a soccer field. There are also five pools! You see. Cascades is your place to dabble in all sorts of sports and fitness activities.
