About the property

Three room Suite w/private BR, sleeper sofa in Living room, bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Eastern Market Suites is a charming, newly renovated Victorian house featuring a three room suite on the first level, offering a single bedroom w/queen-size bed, a double-size sofa-bed in your tastefully furnished living room, and other high-end amenities. Located at the Eastern Market Metro station, on Capitol Hill, in Washington, DC., we are less than two blocks from the historic Eastern Market (circa 1873), where visitors enjoy fresh produce six days a week and an outdoor flea market featuring antiques and local artisan's wares every weekend. Your suite is around the corner from Barrack's Row (a very popular destination point for restaurants, coffee shops and shopping), and 1/2 block from easy subway access to anywhere in or around the city.

Recognized as one of the safest and and most conveniently pedestrian friendly neighborhoods in the country, we have been rated at 94 out of 100%.

Virtually everyone who has stayed at the Suites has been amazed by the ambiance, convenience & comforts found in their suite, and you, too, will be very pleased when staying in your clean, cozy, yet spacious Eastern Market Suite while visiting Washington, D.C.

For tourists & business travelers alike, we are only a ten minute stroll to the U.S. Capitol Campus, the U.S. Supreme Court & Congressional Office buildings, and the east end of the National Mall. The world-famous Castle of the Smithsonian Institute is only 15 minutes away on Metro (4 stops) and the new Nationals Baseball stadium is only ten blocks from your suite.

You will enjoy a unique experience of 'living' in a historic home in the historic Capitol Hill neighborhood of Washington, D.C., within the shadow of the U.S. Capitol Building, rather than in some stark hotel room somewhere in the city.

About Kirk Beatley

History of the Guest House

Kirk Beatley is a native Washingtonian who bought this house from relatives in 2008, which he then meticulously restored and renovated to updated while retaining the original 1890 Victorian ambiance. This lovely Victorian house has been in the family since 1905 when his great grandmother and her daughter purchased the house so that her daughter would raise her own family. Now a new generation of Washingtonians would like you to have the opportunity of experiencing living on Capitol Hill.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I am absolutely speechless! I could not have found a nicer, more convenient place to stay while in Washington, D.C. So close to so many restaurants, the Metro, the Capitol, and Eastern Market. Nicely decorated and very clean. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and look forward to returning soon.

Great place and great location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was perfect. Nice big living room and big separate bedroom. Kitchen was totally updated and full of character at the same time. Great covered deck to sit out and enjoy morning coffee or evening cocktail. It was easy to uber to union station for hop on hop off and capital one arena and fedex stadium to see the hockey and football games

We will definitely stay here again if we ever return to DC And I will keep this contact to recommend to anyone I know that's going to DC

Convenient and clean!

  • 5 of 5

This VRBO is in a good location with access to everything needed. We walked everywhere, yet public transportation was easily accessible. Kirk was great at responding to our questions before and during. Entry was easy, we felt secure and everything worked well.

Perfect Barracks Row location

  • 5 of 5

Terrific location for ease of access by just walking to Barracks Row restaurants plus the 8th & I Friday night parade. We were surprised at how quiet it was inside the apartment considering a somewhat busy street just outside. Kirk immediately responded to a lack of internet access by contacting the service provider to get it restored right after we arrived.

Great comfortable place with ideal location to the Federal Mall, subway and restaurants!

  • 5 of 5

Having a comfortable place to call 'home' for a week was a lifesaver! The subway and public transportation was conveniently close! Also there were so many great restaurants in the neighborhood! I would highly recommend this building for a brief or extended stay in Washington DC area!!

Just as described and so convenient

  • 5 of 5

I'm about to check out after a 4 night stay. I had been a little worried about just how far the Metro really was because on the maps it shows that it's in a park. But in real life it's more of a pocket park. It truly is only about 200 steps from the front door to the entrance of the Metro and I take short steps. When I arrived Kirk greeted me and could not have been kinder and showed me around the place. It's beautifully done and you won't be the least bit disappointed. And he changes the door code for each new guest. I have felt safe and very comfortable during the entire week. I would highly recommend this property to anyone and I hope to be able to come back.

BTW, when I contacted Kirk in advance to ask if I might add an additional day on the front of my visit, he said it was booked but referred me to the Capitol Hill Hotel very nearby. It was a wonderful referral and I would certainly stay at that hotel again as well. I definitely prefer Kirk's place, but as an alternative for a night or so the hotel was great.
