Bright and sunny private bedroom and en suite spa bathroom in fully renovated carriage house. Enjoy the chef's kitchen, open floor plan, a fireplace in winter and roof deck in summer. Great location just two blocks from metro, one from bike share.
Crisp and colorful guest room with comfortable bed featuring a memory foam mattress and upscale linens
Step into a completely renovated carriage house tucked back off the high-traffic street between Columbia Heights and Petworth neighborhoods, conveniently located close to public transportation.
Once inside, you’ll find the modern touches to make every party of your stay an experience: from dramatic tall ceilings, a gorgeous antique wood mantle around the gas fireplace in the sunken living room, an expansive and open first floor layout with a chef’s kitchen replete in granite, to the bird’s eye view of the area of the bustling neighborhood from the roof deck.
The wood floors throughout the apartment extend to your private suite, where you’ll find a cozy bed with the best linens, plenty of storage for your personal items, a marble bathroom with spa whirlpool tub, and lots of unique touches to make your stay more enjoyable.
Take in all that DC has to offer, while coming home each evening to luxurious and unique accommodations in a hip neighborhood with wonderful amenities. Thanks for looking -- we look forward to hosting you at The Carriage House!
Guests have full use of the living areas, including the kitchen and roof deck. Parties with two guests will be most comfortable, but larger groups can be considered on a case-by-case basis for an additional fee. There is plenty of on-street parking, and a parking pass is available. Off-street parking is also possible for a small fee.
With adequate notice, the full house with two bedrooms, each with a private bath, is also available. Please contact me for further details on renting the entire home.
Interaction with Guests
You'll be sharing the space with an energetic, fun newlywed couple. We're pretty laid back, enjoy good food and conversation, and love meeting new people. There is a very friendly and sweet Pomeranian who considers this apartment her home, and you her friend, as well. We are happy to give you as much space as you like, offer help when needed, or invite you to join us for dinner so we can get to know each other -- whatever makes guests most comfortable.
Within the neighborhood you'll find several wonderful eateries, including Scandinavian at Domku, French at Chez Billy, Spanish at El Chucho, Sala Thai, Caribbean at Sweet Mango Cafe, as well as Ethiopian, Chinese and lot's of American options. There are several great bars, one with trivia night and a great deck.
Petworth neighborhood growing rapidly, and you'll find plenty of character and a great place to experience DC like a local. Plus, you're just a few blocks to awesome eateries on 11th Street, or a few more over from 14th Street and Columbia Heights, where there's also a Target, Bed Bath & Beyond and plenty of other places to eat and shop.
The Georgia Avenue/Petworth stop on the green line is less than two blocks away. From there, you can reach Mt. Vernon and Chinatown stops, DC's Convention Center, The National Portrait Gallery, lots of restaurants, as well as easy access to other metro lines that will take you to every point in DC, including the National Mall and Smithsonian museums. The Capitol City Bikeshare is within one block, and you'll be within a few blocks of about five of Metro's bus lines servicing all parts of DC. Our check-in information has detailed specifics for getting around, as well as options for where to find what you need during your stay.

You'll come as strangers, but we hope you'll leave as friends!
I stayed with Amy and Adam for a month and that certainly was my best month in the DC area. Their house and guest room are tastefully decorated and Amy and Adam are naturally inclined to take an interest in their guests' well-being and comfort. During my stay I enjoyed numerous discussions with both of them, followed their city tips for everything I was looking for and certainly had an amazing time. Make sure to not miss their awesome Washington moonlight tour :)
What a wonderful Airbnb experience! I stayed with Amy and Adam for four weeks while doing research at the National Archives and the Library of Congress. Their place is beautiful (much nicer than my real house!), clean, and super convenient to everywhere I needed to go. They were friendly and warm, made me two delicious dinners, invited me to do things with them and their friends, and welcomed me with little extras, like hotel-sized bath products and a basket of tasty treats. The suite gave me ample privacy, but I also made use of the common areas--their state of the art kitchen, flat-screen TV, and toasty gas fireplace. Know that there is a little noise from the street at night, but it was never a problem for me. Amy supplies guests with eye masks and earplugs, and with the comfortable bed and fluffy comforter, I slept like a baby!
Amy and Adam were amazing Hosts. They made us feel very welcome. Their home is immaculate and so comfortable. Our bedroom and private bath were excellent and offered all the necessities ones need when traveling. The bedroom was light and bright, plenty of wonderful windows, something unusual for DC. We give their home a five star rating. Amy is a true chef. We were blessed with sharing an amazing meal with them. The location of the carriage house was idea for us. It was only 2 blocks away from the Metro and the bike share program was only a block away. Their neighborhood felt very safe. To go downtown its not far by metro or bike. We also host folks at our home in Colorado. This was our first Airbnb experience as a guest. We learned a few pointers. It was good to be on the receiving end of being a guest. We would highly recommend Amy and Adams home.
This was our first time Airbnb experience and we loved it!
We just moved to DC and stayed with Amy and Adam for 10 days, until we found a place to rent. We decided to give Airbnb a try originally willing to save money but we couldn't have a better decision. Our experience was way better than if we had stayed in a hotel.
The bedroom looks like it is in a picture. The house is lovely. Amy thinks in every detail.
Amy and Adam are amazing hosts! Amy is very resourceful about DC. She gave us good advises about the city from places to eat to furniture stores and how to get around the city. There are may places to eat close to their (email hidden).
At the end of the day we ended up renting the place she had referred. Sometime it feel we were staying in old good friends.
Amy made us feel very welcomed. The room was just as described and in the picture. We felt very safe in the neighborhood at all times. It was a great stay and a chance to experience the real Washington DC.
The room accomodation is accurately depicted in the photos.
The accomodations are immaculate and every detail had been thought out, including sleeping masks and a drawer full of extra toiletry needs in case anything is forgotten. We arrived when the owner wasn't there and detailed instructions had been provided via email along with sticky notes throughout the property; the host was always available by phone or text to answer questions that might come up.
A long time resident of DC, the owner also provided a wealth of knowledge regarding restaurants and sights to see. We missed our dog so her beautiful pomeranian (so smart and well behaved) allowed us to love her up every night when we returned from sight seeing and spending time with our daughter.
We had a bit of trouble with the alarm system and accidentally set it off one too many times, but the host was quite good natured about it!
The home is conveniently located 2 blocks from a metro stop, along with a drug store, grocery store, and excellent coffee shop. A short walk will take you to restaurants and a larger shopping area.
All t's are crossed and i's dotted here and the host is friendly and enthusiastic about sharing her home!
I stayed with Amy and Adam for one month and I really enjoyed it.
I really love their house because it is clean, well-equipped and so cozy. It is also pretty close to the Metro and several supermarkets.
Amy and Adam:
Amy and Adam are really caringly and did a great job showing me where to go to and what to see in Washington.
I highly recommend staying with Amy and Adam if youre in Washington.

Fun and active Washingtonians with a great social network, a keen understanding of the city and a knack for roof top gardening. Looking forward to meeting new people from points near and far -- people who come as guests and leave as friends.
