History of the Guest House: Kirk Beatley is a fourth generation Washingtonian whose family has lived on Capitol Hill since the late 1800s, and where he continues to live today with his wife and two children. In 1905, Kirk's Great-Grandmother, Margaret, purchased this1890 Victorian home to entice her newly married daughter, Nell, to raise her own family in the neighborhood. Nell and her husband, John Luskey, raised their 12 children in this home.

In 2008 Kirk purchased the house from relatives who had owned or lived in the house since 1905, and then Kirk and his family spent over two years meticulously restoring and renovating the home, blending old-world Victorian charm and grace with new world appliances and technology.

Today, Kirk's family, a fifth generation of Washingtonians, are honored to offer you the opportunity of experiencing residential living in their newly updated family's house, in the heart of our Nation's Capitol, at the Historic Eastern Market on Capitol Hill!

Great location, safe neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

We were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go- a 20 minute walk to Capitol Hill. Several nice restraunts nearby. The unit was well updated and clean, with adequate space for the six of us. Owner was very attentive and accessible, replying promptly during our stay. On-street parking could be exciting, but I was able to get a spot across the street with a minimum of patience. We will likely stay here again on our next visit to DC.

Outstanding Unit

  • 5 of 5

This unit was amazing and could not be in a better location. Literally steps from the Metro- which was great for our family. Restaurants, shopping, coffee shops, and groceries super close- no need to rent a car. Kirk was awesome and super easy to work with. We also enjoyed our conversations with him about the history of the house. The place was spotless and has eveything we needed. We will stay in the same unit if we return to DC some day!!

Charming & Perfect Garden Suite

  • 5 of 5

I can not say enough about how wonderful our stay was at the EMS. The place was super clean when we walked in and so easy to get into. I loved having a code and not having to worry about a key. It had a lot of character and was beautifully decorated.

The owner sent out emails prior to our stay with directions and websites helpful for our stay. The amount of detail in the emails was amazing.

Thank you so much Kirk! You made our stay easy and awesome!

Excellent location, clean and comfortable.

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. The location was perfect, we could walk everywhere and felt as though it was a safe area.

We would recommend Eastern Market Suites to others, and would stay there again on a return trip to D.C.

Well- equipped, well- maintained, well- situated

  • 5 of 5

This is a great option for anyone looking to spend a few days in Washington. The apartment is immaculate, nicely decorated and furnished and has everything you could need for your stay. A short walk from the metro, but also within walking distance of a number of the museums. At the weekend, Eastern Market is bustling with a flea market and lots of other stalls. Around the corner, we found a huge selection of restaurants, diners and bars. Although it is so conveniently located, the area was quiet at night. Kirk sent an email with links to useful websites for visitors and responded promptly to our one email enquiry. We would definitely return if we are back in the city.
