The highly rated vacation rental is conveniently situated in DC's prized Northwest neighborhood. Here you will find a true urban oasis, marrying the tranquility of a peaceful retreat with proximity to the city. Relax on our front porch as you wait for the “every seven minutes” bus to come directly across the street. In 25 minutes or less, it’ll take you directly to the middle of the city or in 10 minutes you’ll be at the Metro station. But if you and any of your guests are driving, we have free, unlimited, on-street parking.
Some of our other features include wireless Internet, flat screen TVs in all bedrooms, Jacuzzi tubs. Our gourmet kitchen allows you all of the space you need to make that special meal or we can also take care of your breakfast, lunch or dinner requests with our fabulous caterer. We have break-out areas for your corporate retreat, including several rooms that close off for privacy and two ipe architectural decks to spread out in.
For even more space, you can elect to add the Enchanted Cottage -- located 20 yards behind the Inn -- in your stay (additional fee). With a living space and small kitchen upstairs, there is a spiral staircase that connects to a lovely bedroom with a wonderful garden view. The Enchanted Cottage has a Romeo-Juliet balcony and a bathroom with a claw foot tub and a bidet. Oh, so romantic!
We offer enough versatility where you can relax and read a good book in the downstairs living areas near one of our two first floor fireplaces, or close off one of our three chestnut pocket doors for meetings.

We have ample, free, safe parking and are located on a major thoroughfare two miles from downtown.

We are The Uptown House and we look forward to hearing from you!

(One- and two-day stays Allowed when they immediately proceed or precede an existing reservation or to fill in gaps. Email for more information.)

FLOOR PLAN: Boasting 11 bedrooms and 10.5 baths, you will find that this house is an opportunity for all of your guests to be comfortable with ample large bedrooms and designer baths.
FIRST FLOOR: This 110-year old Victorian charmer has a wonderful wrap-around porch where you can sit and relax. The first floor has two separate living areas, two fireplaces, a large dining area and a half bath.
SECOND FLOOR: We have four beautifully decorated bedrooms with four baths. Three of the bedrooms have Jacuzzi tubs and one with a double Jacuzzi tub! The other bedroom has a nice pebbled tiled walk-in shower. All bedrooms on this level have queen size beds.
Also on the second floor is our pantry kitchen with a sink, hot water tap, small fridge and coffee maker.

BASEMENT: Oh, my gosh, the basement has so much character with a lot of old world charm. Here you will find our gourmet kitchen that any caterer would absolutely love! Wood block counters, exposed beams and a center island that tops off the finishes to this quaint space. Downstairs there are also two nice size bedrooms with over-the-top bathrooms.

GARDEN: The garden has two beautiful hand-crafted decks made with ipe, the fabulous Brazilian wood. There is a large Wisteria plant that rest on the pergola and offers complete shade. You will get lost in the tranquility and the loveliness that this garden offers.
THE ENCHANTED COTTAGE: Unbelievable two-story converted carriage house. First floor kitchen and living area and a spiral staircase that leads to a beautiful cathedral wood beamed bedroom with a king size bed. Also after a long day, relax in the claw foot bathtub while gazing at the crystal chandelier.

Notes:

Options for Payment

In March 2016, HomeAway started charging a service fee to everyone who books. We think it was excessive, amounting in hundreds of dollars to our guests. We pay a very good amount just to be listed every year and now prefer to just use HomeAway as our listing service. So we are giving you more options to pay. However, there is a little bit more inconvenience in saving money. Such is life, right? To save $$$ you will have to make one upfront payment and mail your contract back in. We just don't have the resources to do the accounting for several payments. Also it may take a tad bit longer to get your refundable deposit back if you mail in or wire your money, maybe up to 10 days. But we are happy that we can offer you a choice. Below outlines the cost of the different methods of payment.

Check Mailed: You must mail in one payment in full, along with the contract, for your entire stay in order for your reservation to be consider reserved. You must mail in your refundable deposit two weeks before arrival.

Wire: Same as above. You can wire the payment and mail the contract separately. Refundable deposits are mailed back.

HomeAwayVRBO: HomeAway charges $399 as a service fee to book with us. We charge a 4% credit card fee, making it approximately $50 more per night. So in total, between our fees and HomeAway's, it's an additional $550 for a three-night stay. The benefits, however, are that you can make payment in several payments. You can also reduce your refundable deposit from $1500 to $500 by purchasing insurance for $49. Another benefit is that you can also accept the contract electronically and get trip insurance.

PayPal: There is a 3% credit card charge added to your total amount. The rest of the information is as if you mailed a check, i.e., one payment, mailing in the contract and a higher refundable deposit.

Credit Cards: You can pay with any credit card you like via PayPal. We add a 3% cr
