3 blocks to H St. or Union Market and 5 blocks to Red Line Metro. We are close to all that Capitol Hill and the H Street Corridor have to offer.
Our home is over 100 years old, but we have lovingly restored it without gutting the charm out of it. You'll find all the modern amenities in a classic wrapper. Combining marble, glass, granite, stainless, original hearts of pine wood flooring to create warm and beautiful spaces. Stay in a piece of history in a city steeped in history.
Guests will have the run of the main home on floors 1 and 2 (there is a separate apartment on the garden level that is used by me and my family on occasion). The home has 3 bedrooms upstairs (2 queen beds and one full bed) and one queen sofa Sleeper on the first floor. It also has two full baths. Finally, it has two 46' big screen TVs with Blue Ray/DVD players and Cable, broadband wireless internet, fully equipped kitchen, and outdoor deck and patio with gas grill.
We are close to everything in Capitol Hill monument and museum-wise ...either by the Red Line Metro (subway), by bus, or by car. (You don't really need a car, thanks to the various public transportation options, including the Capitol Bike Share system). There is a bus line on Florida Ave. 1/2 block away and on K St. two blocks south. H St. is full of cool bars and restaurants and is only 4 blocks away but far enough to avoid the noise and the crowds. Also, Union Market (2 blocks away) is a great place to hang out, get coffee, fantastic Gelato, fresh bread, fish, meat, vegetables, and fabulous gourmet cheese. The wine selection and prices at the Italian specialty store Litteri 1 1/2 blocks away is fantastic!
The Red Line Metro (DC's subway) is only 5 blocks west, Bus lines at Florida Ave. (1/2 block away), K St. 2 blocks south, or H St. 4 blocks south. Convenient to Balt/Wash Parkway, Rt. 295, and Rt. 395.
We can interact as much as our guests would like to interact with us. We have a second home about an hour away and a guest apartment below the home that we sometimes stay in. If we are there we can interact personally if the guests would like to. Otherwise we are quite responsive to text/email/phone for questions and/or advice. English is our native tongue, but between us we speak French, German and a bit of Spanish. We love showing off our city and the many sights, sounds, and aromas you can find in it. Let us help you plan a day according to your likes, interests, and the amount of time you have available.
We'd like people to treat our home as if it were their own...be comfortable, but respectful. Absolutely NO Smoking is allowed in on our home please and NO pets of any kind. You may smoke on the back patio if you need to. Our severely autistic child is deathly allergic to cigarette smoke and dog dander/hair. Please, Please, Please, do NOT smoke anything in our home. Security deposit funds will be used to professionally clean our home if you smoke in it. Thank you in advance for respecting this rule :)
Check-in is at 4pm and Check-out is at 11am.
