Set in a beautiful, walkable neighborhood, our home provides easy access to all that DC has to offer. Feel like a local! Spend your days exploring on foot, by bike or Metro and your evenings enjoying nearby restaurants and night life — OR— buy local produce at the market, make a home-cooked meal and relax in the many cozy spots inside and around this lovely home. Great space for couples, small groups and families with kids.
This is an elegant row house built in 1895. The fully-equipped gourmet kitchen has island seating for 4 and a gas fire for additional warmth when it is chilly. We even provide you with some basic ingredients to make home cooking a breeze. The dining room seats 8. The living room features comfy furniture, a marble mantel, TV with cable and a table for games (and we provide some games!). There is a half bath off the dining room. Upstairs there are three bedrooms. The large master bedroom has a queen-size brass bed and separate bathroom. Another bedroom has a day bed with trundle that can pop up to form a king size bed. Musician guests have access to a piano in that room. The third bedroom is smaller but has a twin bunk bed which is perfect for kids or small adults. The attic den has a full size futon. Bedrooms two, three and the attic share a bathroom.

This has been a family home for many years and is over 120 years old. While it is very comfortable and roomy, it has the quirks that come with age and loving use. For your added enjoyment, there are books to read, guides to the area, and games to play with family or friends. It will feel more like a home away from home than any hotel could!
The basement of the house is currently permanently rented. We ask that you please keep this in mind during your stay. They are friendly people, but will not be your point of contact during your stay.
For safety reasons there is no guest access to roof deck
No open flame such as candles or use of open fireplaces

When we travel, we love to experience a new place the way a local would and this is how we approach our hosting. We love to share our extensive local knowledge with our guests. We are currently splitting our time between DC and our farm house in the Shenandoah Valley where we are trying our hand at becoming self-sufficient.
