About Topher Cushman

Both Deb and I grew up in Upstate New York and have lived in our neighborhood of Capitol Hill for over 10 years where we met and have started our family.

Topher Cushman purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Topher Cushman chose District of Columbia (Washington DC)

In our opinion Capitol Hill is the best located neighborhood for taking in the City and its sights. It is also an amazing community with friendly neighbors. Its a small town village in the heart of one of the world's most powerful cities.

What makes this apartment unique

Stroll to the Market on the weekends, take a glass of wine over to the park in the evening or watch a storm come through from the front porch- you'll love where you are once you get here and look around.

I love this place - so cozy!

  • 5 of 5

I absolutely love staying at this location. Feels like our house away from home. Very quiet area of DC that is family friendly and using Uber you can be anywhere in the City in a matter of minutes - walking to the Capitol and mall is a easy walk as well. This is our go to destination when we are in DC. Absolutely the best.

Perfect all the way around. Location was amazing, all of the conveniences of home in the nicest hidden treasure. The bed was amazing too! Great place for a small family to stay or a couple wanting a beautiful getaway. The owners were great, provided us with passes, answered my 100 questions and checked in after we left. Highly recommend!!!

This was the perfect place for us during this visit! All of our kids live in DC very near this apartment. We come several times a year, but this was the most special time as our first grandchild was born just 2 days ago! The location and convenience to our kids' places, Eastern Market, restaurants, stores, etc. is great! Topher was great - very accessible when we had questions and very accommodating when we needed to extend our stay a little due to the week-early arrival of our granddaughter. Highly recommend!

Cozy apartment in the BEST LOCATION

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay and Topher's apartment. It was perfect for my husband, myself, and our baby. There was a portable crib and high chair in the apartment, it was so nice that we didn't need to pack those things. It had a little kitchen that was very clean and fully stocked, a nice bathroom and a bedroom with a super comfy bed! It's also right across the street from a gorgeous park with tons of runners, dogs, and kids! It was so fun!

The location was the best part! An easy walk to the capitol and all the great shops and restaurants in the Eastern Market area. All necessities are within walking distance. The metro is only 5 blocks away and it was super easy to navigate the city and get around that way.

Would definitely stay at this property again!!

Great for stays near Capitol Hill

  • 4 of 5

Exceptionally well located Capitol Hill flat within walking distance of almost everything east of the Capitol, and close to metro and bus stops will meet your needs for transportation to more different destinations. Great for couples or singles. Kitchen has what it takes. And a nearby store has great pastry, wine, cheese, sandwiches and wine. Heat worked well for these visiting Floridians. Building is a mirror of a neighbor, so only four stars because we tried to enter the wrong building. 😁򐐠Owner is exceptionally responsive and accommodating. Thanks Topher!

Great location to Eastern Market, Capital and Metro.

  • 4 of 5

Great apt, clean with plenty of closet space and kitchen was perfect for amount of cooking we did. Bed was comfy, shower was hot and had good pressure, perfect after a day of sightseeing. Only two things that put a damper on our stay, one is we never met our hosts, most of the other places had reviews talking about how welcoming the hosts were and we never saw them. We had brought a gift from Texas but was never able to give it to them. The other was the amount of noise from upstairs, although it wasn't constant and didn't go into the night the footfalls were heavy. All in all I would stay there again it was a beautiful and safe neighborhood. If you are looking for nightlife and action you may want to stay closer to downtown.
