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.

The owner Kirk was very informative of the area and we actually got to meet with him. The place is in immaculate condition! All the comforts of home and then some. We will definitely be back. Thanks Kirk! It was a pleasure meeting with you.

We could not have been happier with our stay at Eastern Market Suites. The location was amazing and it was such a nice place to come home to after a full day of activities and sightseeing. We will definitely recommend to others!

The suite is in a perfect location for walking to grocery, restaurants, Eastern Market & the Metro.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this EasternMarketSuite! We felt at home and definitely will return there for another stay! It is clean and beautifully decorated. We had everything we needed and enjoyed walking to the grocery and restaurants close by. The backyard and porch were perfect for hanging out when taking a break from touring DC. We met the owner the first day and he was so nice. It was neat to hear some history about the home from him. Things that are important to us that were definitely check marked yes for this property- clean, safe, comfortable, character, location, dishwasher, W/D, great water pressure, porch, equipped kitchen, parking pass for our rental car, the list could go on and on. We will miss the suite until our next trip for sure!!

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

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.
