About the property

Tucked away on a quiet street only 1 block from the Eastern Market Metro.

This well-maintained home has four full bedrooms (one a basement with suite with its own kitchenette) plus a sofa pull out in the main area that can be shut off from the rest of the home for privacy.

It contains a fully-equipped kitchen, lovely private patio, and separate spaces for all guests. Combine that with a short walk to everything (including the Capitol Building), easy access to public transit and kid-friendly amenities and you have the perfect spot for a family visit to DC!

Classic details have been lovingly maintained throughout the home - transoms, original doors, and mil-work.

A key-pad entry allows us to change the code for each new group. We will text and e-mail this code prior to your stay.

Eastern Market is the heart of this great neighborhood. There you will find excellent fresh produce, meats, and baked goods, and fabulous flea markets and food vendors on the weekends. The neighborhood surrounding the market has so much to share as well: It is within walking distance to the US Capitol, easily accessible by public transit, offers fabulous parks and opportunities for sight-seeing, and is also home to some of the best restaurants in the city.

Whether you want to go for a run down to the National Mall, bike to the Jefferson Memorial, relax with a beverage on a restaurant patio, shop 'til you drop, visit the Smithsonian and be home in 7 minutes on the Metro line, whatever your idea of fun is - this is where you can find it!

About Lynette Craig

Mom to two busy little boys -- I love biking, walking, and exploring with my guys in our lovely Capitol Hill community.

An avid traveler myself, I understand how nice it is to have a clean, comfortable space to retreat to at the end of a long day and hope I can provide that to you during your stay in DC.

Lynette Craig purchased this townhome in 2008

Why Lynette Craig chose District of Columbia (Washington DC)

This beautiful row-home, built in 1885, was amazingly passed down through the same family that built it until we purchased it in 2008. We consider ourselves it's current caretakers and spent many happy years here as a family and respectfully ask that you help us care for it during your stay.

Car: not necessary

It doesn't get more convenient or 'DC' than this location in Eastern Market - no exaggeration! Tucked back on a quiet street, yet only STEPS to the metro and some of the best shopping and eating the Hill has to offer.

Pick up a bike share and ride down to the National Mall, ride the metro line straight home from the Smithsonian after a long day of sight-seeing, walk to the Capitol building and the Library of Congress in mere minutes, meander down Barracks Row and choose from a selection of some of the city's best restaurants, or simply shuffle half a block down to the weekend flea market and pick up some fabulous local art or jewelry.

You can really experience the hill like a local and then retreat into a recently-renovated, clean and inviting space, full of all the amenities you could hope for.

great vacation rental house

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time at this beautiful house in a great neighborhood. The house had plenty of space for our group of 8 and everything was in great condition. It is also very close to the metro and to a ton of great restaurants and a grocery store and easy walking distance to the capitol, library of congress, supreme court, and other attractions. It could not have been better.

Excellent location, great house!

  • 5 of 5

The house is clean, comfortable, and well stocked. The outside patio with table and chairs is great. The location is excellent, close to Eastern Market and Metro station. I would definitely rent this house again on a return visit.

Capitol Hill stay

  • 5 of 5

Location - provided easy access to most tourist sites, many of which were within walking distance.

Style - provided a unique insight into how locals live.

Layout - worked perfectly for our group of 7. May have been better if the "kids" room wasn't set up with bunk beds (given our "kids" are grown), but could see this would be great for those with younger kids.

Furnishings - all up-to-date (no worn / tired items)

Kitchen set-up - fully accommodated cooking on those occasions that we wished to do so.

Favorite #1 - Patio area was great (well shaded, lots of greenery) and was our landing spot for a glass of wine later each afternoon, to relax and discuss the day (and even play games a few times)

Favorite #2 - our relatively newly-wedded daughter / son-in-law were so happy to be given the basement as their space - they felt like it was a second honeymoon and gave them a much-needed break from their busy schedules.

Favorite #3 - very comfortable bed in the Master bedroom - that can make or break it for us, since nothing ruins a vacation more than an aching back or broken up sleep.

Family vacation of a lifetime!

  • 5 of 5

This is the BEST VRBO rental for a family, or for that matter anyone, in all of D.C.. My husband and I took our children's families to D.C. for a family vacation to celebrate my 70th birthday. There were six adults and four children ages 9-13. This home became our home! It was immaculately clean and perfectly appointed. It was our base for adventure and discovery of this beautiful city. The location is SPECTACULARLY PERFECT! We were able to walk to the Capitol, the Eastern Market, the Smithsonian museums and the Library of Congress. It is a short Uber ride to everything else. The restaurants on 8th are also in easy walking distance. We really enjoyed Medium Rare, We, The Pizza and a Mexican restaurant. For those of you looking at this review the top two highlights of our trip, besides being together as a family, were our walking tour with Tim of Walk The Town - he was a gifted story teller and thoroughly engaging as well as educational and the other was the Bike and Roll seeing the monuments at night tour. The bottom-line is this rental is comfortable, spotlessly clean and the location puts it over-the-top as the best choice ever for your time in D.C. I couldn't recommend it more highly.

Very impressed

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed with the Eastern Market home! We were traveling as a group of eight, four couples and found the home layout worked perfect for us. We could have a perfect mix of together time as well as alone time. Each bedroom had great accommodations - the entire house was very clean and inviting. The outdoor patio was a perfect place for us to unwind, we enjoyed every minute of our 10 day trip. The restaurants in the immediate area, both eat in and take out were great, the prices very reasonable. We enjoyed the market on two Sundays with the flea market side and also enjoyed the close proximity for fresh food during our stay. Lynette was very accommodating and prompt with answering our questions. We didn't know how close the home would be and easily accessible from the metro, it was amazingly close, even with our luggage from the airport. We highly recommend this home!
