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.

DC trip

  • 4 of 5

First time in DC and staying at this location made it great, beautiful place close to metro, restaurants and eastern markets. You can walk to all the sites if you choose. Kirk the owner helped out with suggestions on things to do and how best to do them. Can't wait to return to DC will definitely try to stay here again.

Kirk's property is absolutely fantastic! The condo itself is very nice and comfortable. The location is perfect! Sooo close to the metro, restaurants, shopping! It really made our trip more enjoyable than being in a hotel! We loved it and if we return, will stay here. I will also recommend it to my friends and family for their future visits! Thanks so much!!

Excellent Property Just South & East of the Capitol !!

  • 5 of 5

My wife & I spent a week in DC at this property. What an excellent property and location. The property is on a beautiful and quiet tree lined street. We drove in from MA, parked our car right in front with the permit provided and never moved it again. 100 steps is no lie to the Eastern Market Metro Station which was so convenient after a long day of walking around DC. We felt like we had our own little home away from home. Kirk, the owner, communicated frequently with us and answered all our questions. Also many great restaurants and the Marine Barracks-Washington are a block away on 8th St. SE. If we get back to DC, we'd come looking or this place again !!
