About the property

1860 Row House Steps From The Capitol

At the heart of historic Eastern Market, is a rowhouse that was on the Historic Restoration Home Tour just waiting for you and your family! One of the few rowhouses that have been completely modernized while still maintaining the old Federal charm, it will be comfortable and exactly what you are looking for as you tour the Nations Capitol. Steps away from the Metro, Barracks Row shopping and eating, Nationals Stadium and the Capitol itself, this location cannot be beat! Did we also mention we have a backyard? Most houses do not on the hill large enough for outdoor bbq-ing. So grab your groceries for the week down the street at the two grocery stores (Safeway and Harris Teeter) and save some money while you are here. We also have an alarm system and handyman available 24/7 should you need assistance.

Great stay

  • 4 of 5

A very belated review - we had a great stay. As other reviewers have mentioned, the owners do live here and all their personal stuff is in the house. They have an apartment in the back that they stay in when guests are using the house, and they do come into the basement room to use the laundry. We did not find that to be a problem - and we did get the chance to meet them - delightful couple. The house is beautiful and the location cannot be beat for a DC stay. Great neighborhood and super easy access to public transportation - we were able to easily get everywhere we wanted to go in DC without using the car. We only used the car one day to go out to Dulles area museum.

Great spot

  • 5 of 5

We were here for a conference, and I, as the faculty member, was able to share space with another 7 students from my university. Really charming place, perfectly kept, and very helpful owners as needed. The location is outstanding as well. Right next to the Eastern Market with access to everything, including the Metro for access to the rest of the city. Will definitely return.

Nice Quiet Neighborhood, Conveinient

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the home. We were in town to work and the house was a quick trip to where we needed to be. The neighborhood was quiet and peaceful. The house is a great reminder of the history of DC with its architecture.

Thank you for your hospitality.

Enjoyed our stay

  • 5 of 5

There were six of us so we each were two to a bedroom (there are 3 bedrooms - one with a king, one with a double and one with two twins) and we really enjoyed our stay. The kitchen was large and the patio was a great place to hang out. The basement has a comfy TV space. The bedrooms were also comfortable and bathrooms very nice. It's a beautiful and very clean vintage home with beautiful furnishings and decor in a great location. It's about a mile to the Capitol Building and only a few blocks from Eastern Market metro stop. The neighborhood is safe. There are red bikes at the end of the block/East Capitol Street so that's very convenient. We didn't have a car so used the metro, uber, red bikes and walked everywhere and it worked out great. Lots of great restaurants just a few blocks away (just yelp to find more information.) Be aware that there is a shortage of space to put your things - like your suitcase and bathroom items - but we made it work. The steps are steep but you get used to that. The rugs are also slippery so we just put them aside. The owners were good about helping us with the TV and communicating with us about our stay. Overall we had a great time and would return - we recommend this home.
