This 2-bedroom, 2.5-bath 1500+ sq. ft. home sleeps up to 6, with 2 on a pull-out couch. It is located on a quiet, safe, tree-lined street that is steps away from top restaurants and a quick cab to downtown DC.
This home is ideally located 1 block from Lincoln Park, 2 blocks from Eastern Market, 3 blocks from the Barracks Row restaurants/bars, and a 12 minute walk to the Capitol/Supreme Court/Library of Congress. Groceries (inc. a new Trader Joe's!), metro, and cafes are all within a 5-10 minute walk.
This home has two bedrooms, both with queen-size beds, beautiful decor, and luxury en-suite bathrooms. There is a 1/2 bath on the main floor, as well as a coat closet, and patio off the kitchen (with grill and conversation set). Guests can cook delicious meals in the fully-equipped kitchen, relax on the living room's two couches, watch TV or DVDs on the three large flat screens (with a deluxe cable package and Roku streaming), catch up with work on the desk and a printer/scanner, as well as eat and chat at the large dining room table. One of the couches has a queen-size pull-out bed, and a queen-size air mattress is available if needed.
Located in the heart of the historic Capitol Hill neighborhood, Eastern Market is DC's destination for great restaurants, quaint bars, beautiful tree-lined streets, and a weekend farmers market. Nearby Lincoln Park, the largest Capitol Hill park, has a jogging trail, playgrounds, and ample picnic space.
Walking distances to transit and landmarks: Eastern Market (5 minutes); Capital Bikeshare Bike Rentals (7 minutes); Blue, Orange and Silver Line Metro (7 minutes); Barracks Row Restaurants (8 minutes); Library of Congress (8 minutes); Supreme Court (8 minutes); U.S. Capitol (10 minutes); H Street Corridor (20 minutes); Union Station Amtrak (25 minutes); National Mall and Smithsonian Museums (30 minutes).
I'm happy to answer any questions about how to get anywhere by car, bike, or transit. Capitol Hill is a vibrant neighborhood with a close sense of community. Hill staffers, professionals, students, and tourists are often out and about—making it safe for walking, even at night. My street itself has a "neighborhood feel" and is very quiet at night.
The location of this home would be ideal for anyone conducting research at the Library of Congress, meeting with Members of Congress for work, seeking easy access to the DC monuments and museums, or wanting to experience the DC foodie scene.
Getting around: I have a visitors' parking pass, so guests can park on the street, and parking spots on my block are oftentimes available. Eastern Market metro station, which is on the Blue/Orange/Silver lines, is 3 blocks away, as is a Capitol Bikeshare station. The Capitol Hill bars/restaurants, as well as the H Street Corridor, are all within walking distance.
Other things to note:
This home is owner-occupied when I am not on work travel. While that means that approximately 1/2 of the closet/cabinet/fridge space will be used, it also means that the house is much more well-stocked with whatever you may need during your stay than a traditional vacation rental. I will be out of town during guests' stay, so I will not be able to greet them, but have a key lockbox with specific instructions for convenient check-in and check-out. I have lived in DC for 10 years and strive to experience all it has to offer; I provide guests with guide books and maps, and am happy to answer any questions.
