The space

Life as it was in days gone by: This bright and beautiful room has an antique four-poster bed with a new down comforter (not shown in the photo), a reading lamp, a big teacher's desk, its own small refrigerator, and a large armoire that holds a television.

Bed linens and bath towels are provided. You are welcome to share all of the common areas of house with us as well as two or three other people who are renting other rooms in our home. The house has hardwood floors, a wood-burning fireplace in the living room, and a fabulous deck overlooking a patio, yard, & garden. Guests staying at least five days will have access to our wonderful Whirlpool Duet washing machine and dryer (with limited hours since we share these with the occupants of our basement apartment),

The shared full bathroom has just been renovated. No boring neutral colors here, this is a happy red bathroom that will get your day off to a great start. This bathroom serves two bedrooms on the house's second floor.

While breakfast is not included, there are bagel and coffee shops as well as numerous restaurants within about a 10-minute walk. We invite you to kick back with complimentary morning coffee or tea, or relax after a big day with your own happy hour in our fantastic yard, garden, and patio, with a huge dining deck overlooking it all (you can buy wine and beer at the nearby Giant Foods grocery store, and those items plus spirits at Plain Old Pearson's liquor store.)

Housemates might include a dog or two. We don't own any dogs, but we do occasionally board a dogs whose owners are out of town. If having a dog in the house is a concern for you, please ask me if we will have any dogs staying with us on the dates you need a place.

If you have a car and need parking, we can obtain a parking permit for your car for $15/day. Street parking is available, but like almost all residential areas of Washington, it is zoned for residential parking and if you don't have a resident parking permit, you are limited to parking just two hours on weekdays. With a permit from us, you can park on the street without any time limit.

Within about a 10-minute walk, you will find a Giant Foods grocery store (where you can buy a glass of wine or a beer to sip while you are shopping!), numerous restaurants, coffee shops, bars, and pharmacies. You can walk past the Vice President's residence and down Embassy Row to DuPont Circle, or run/walk on the nearby Glover Park trail (no cars or bikes on this trail) and into Georgetown. Washington National Cathedral is 2 blocks away.

This home is located in a lovely area of other beautiful homes and many shops and restaurants. Just a couple of blocks over, you can enjoy seeing all the magnificent embassies! Close to Georgetown University, also.

This is an easy calm place to be yet not far away or secluded. I enjoyed my one night and would have liked to stay longer.

I really enjoyed my stay here. Teresa and Reid are great hosts, and the room is very nice. My commute into Washington was easy, as nearby bus routes took me to the Metro. I also enjoyed walking through the beautiful neighborhood, and visiting the National Cathedral.
