About this listing
Make our 20's era home your base camp for your next trip to DC! Free and easy on-street parking, 2 blocks from multiple buses to Metro, the main floor bed & bath are clean and comfy. Double bed & dresser for your stuff. FAST WiFi for work & play!
Just north of Washington, DC is the eclectic small town of Mount Rainier, Maryland - an oasis of trees, birds and bungalows that was the first "streetcar subway" of D.C. While sadly the streetcar is gone, Mount Rainier remains connected to the District by many buslines and two nearby Metro Stations. Our charming bungalow is on a quiet street, but just a couple blocks from the bus stop. Walk to GLUT, the local food co-op, or to Joe's Movement Emporium, where you can sign up for a yoga or dance class to relax while you're here. If you're a runner or biker, we're just a few blocks from the many miles of paved trail along the northwest branch of the Anacostia River.
Our main floor bedroom with full bed and bathroom w/shower are yours for your stay, and you're welcome to use our kitchen and share breakfast with us. Towels (and bedding) provided, and you're welcome to use our washer & dryer. If you're travelling with a child and need a night out (or have an evening meeting), our middle school aged daughter would be happy to talk about babysitting with you!
There's plenty to read in your room. Feel free to enjoy our (very) hi-speed wi-fi, great front porch and rear patio with gas grill. For last minute printing needs, we have a color wireless printer. There is also easy & free on-street parking. We are often available to pick up or drop off at the nearest metro station, just ask.

Interaction with Guests
INTERACTION WITH GUESTS:
I like to be home whenever guests arrive. Dennis has a home office and is often around to answer questions. We like to chat with guests but respect their privacy if they choose to keep to themselves.
Lots of flowers, cute houses. Close to food coop. Easy to get downtown.
On-street parking is free and it is easy to find spot, usually right in front of house. We can accommodate Teslas/other electrics. House is about 2 blocks from busses to Metro station. West Hyattsville station is about 1 mile and has parking available for those who want to park and take Metro into town. We are often available to pick up guests at Metro arriving to Reagan National (DCA) or Baltimore (BWI), and can provide directions.
Other Things to Note
OTHER THINGS TO NOTE:
We have friendly dogs and a generally absent cat, and while we can keep them out of guests' way, those with pet allergies or who are afraid of dogs should probably look elsewhere.
Please arrive by 10 p.m. if possible; we can usually pick you up at nearest metro with advance notice. No smoking on property. You may use the kitchen to prepare your own food (please let us know so that we can juggle our cooking schedule with yours). No Daleks, please.
