Fantastic location! We're in the heart of the city of Takoma Park, on the Washington DC-Maryland border. We're 7 miles (11 kilometers) from the heart of Washington DC -- the White House, Capitol Hill, the National Mall, the Smithsonian, the Botanical Gardens, and many famous museums and art galleries.
Our neighborhood is friendly, community-oriented, and easily walkable. Takoma Park is known for its many large trees and eclectic Victorian homes, its flowering foliage, hilly streets, and its friendly and diverse community atmosphere. There is plenty of open space and several parks nearby. Our town is home to many political notables, authors, artists, and musicians.
A short walk into Old Town Takoma takes you to a variety of unique restaurants, bars, and pubs, several of which offer live music! We have coffee shops, an organic food co-op, gift shops, clothing boutiques, antique stores, a bead shop, an award-winning spa (Still Point)... and don't miss our famous Farmer's Market every Sunday!
It is a 10-minute walk to the Takoma Park Metro Station (on the Red Line), then a 15-20 minute subway ride takes you into the heart of Washington, DC. Our public transportation system is extensive and affordable, it's easy to get just about anywhere in the DC metropolitan region. Prefer to bike? Takoma Park has just installed two bike-share racks close by.
The Amtrack Train station is at Union Station, on the Red Line, a 15-min ride from Takoma Park. Three airports serve the DC metropolitan area: Dulles (IAD), Reagan International (DCA), and Baltimore-Washington International (BWI). All three are approximately 35-45 minutes from our B&B and securing transportation from the airport to our home is easy - need help? - just ask!
We are easy-going and flexible but do have a few suggestions for our guests:
1) We have flexible check-in and check-out times. However, when we are fully booked and have back-to-back guests in one day we appreciate having plenty of time to clean and prepare, and often ask guests checking in to arrive at 5 pm or later. Planning a late night arrival? No problem!
2) During your stay, please let us know if you have any special requests or if you'd like us to add or improve on something-- we'll respond right away! We pride ourselves on our prompt and excellent service.
3) If you have allergies or chemical sensitivities, let us know when you book the space and we will do a special deep-cleaning for you and provide an air purifier.
4) Absolutely NO SMOKING, inside our B&B or anywhere on our property.
5) If you happen to break or lose one of our items, please let us know right away so that we can work out a way to have it repaired or replaced.
6) Feel free to call or text us at any time! And if you'd like to meet and chat for a bit, invite us down! We give our guests total privacy and engage in person only at the initiation of our guests.
Enjoy your stay at Takoma Bliss!

Convenient to Washington DC without the hustle and bustle of the city. Our B&B has a country feel - lots of trees and open space. We're in a great neighborhood in a popular town with plenty to do for adults and kids alike. We custom-built our home about 10 years ago - it's warm and cozy in winter, cool and fresh in summer.
