Large, comfortable and quiet room near National Archives and University of Maryland.

Private, spacious, with a super comfortable bed and lots of amenities such as fridge, wifi, large desk, cable TV and playstation. Access to well equipped kitchen.

The Space

You are going to love your private, spacious bedroom and living space. The room has a super-comfortable king size bed, as well as a nice couch that sleeps one, in case you have a third person. Cozy wood stove adds a warm touch. Bed linens and towels are included. There is also a flat screen TV with surround sound, a playstation/dvd player with lots of games, large desk, and wifi access. In addition, there is a mini fridge stocked with beverages, and a microwave. We also offer basic toiletries and a hair dryer for your convenience.

The bathroom is not directly connected to your room, however, it is exclusively yours to use during your stay. (My husband and I use only the basement bathroom while we have guests).
You'll have access to a well equipped kitchen, should you wish to cook during your stay.
Complimentary light breakfast, coffee and tea are provided.

Let us know about yourself and what brings you to the DC area. It's great to know a bit about each other before we make arrangements.

We're 10 minutes away from the University of Maryland and less than 5 minutes from the National Archives, by car. (You can also walk to the Archive in 15-20 minutes).
Conveniently close to the Silver Spring Metro Station, 10 minutes by car and 5 minutes to Prince George Metro Station.
R2 and R5 buses go to the Fort Totten Metro Station, about 20 minutes.
We are 30 minutes from Baltimore/Washington International Airport (BWI) by car. 45 minutes to Dulles Airport. Ronald Reagan National Airport is accessible by metro, about 35 minutes.
Parking is available.

Please send a message before booking. I look forward to making your stay an enjoyable one.

Interaction with Guests

I interact with my guests a lot because I make breakfast for them and I work from home. But, I'm very respectful of their space and privacy.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • The room is VERY spacious and well equipped. It has
    (i) a 40" large-screen TV,
    (ii) a medium-size refrigerator,
    (iii) a microwave oven,
    (iv) an air conditioner and a ceiling fan and another fan,
    (v) a king-size bed that can sleep 2 "super-sized" adults,
    (vi) a set of sofa seating 4 adults,
    (vii) a breakfast table with 2 chairs,
    (viii) a very large desk and an executive chair, and
    (ix) an iron.

    Guests are also welcomed to use the full kitchen.

    Looking outside from within the room, one can watch the sun setting behind a line of trees.

    There is an over-abundance of supplies -- soap, hair detergent/conditioner, all kinds of lotion, mouth wash, paper dishes, towels of all sizes, bottled water, even soft drinks.

    Jeannette's housekeeping is very orderly, clean, and meticulous.

    The house has interesting and thoughtful decor everywhere.

    Jeannette is a VERY generous, gracious, and classy lady. Her husband is a very respectable gentleman. Their adult son is friendly, easy-going, and helpful. Their dog is v-e-r-y cute and loves a tummy rub. My above repeated use of "very" is appropriate. They are respectful of my privacy.

    I must express my sincere appreciation of Jeannette's repeated offer to help me in many different ways. What the earlier reviewers wrote are 100% true -- at least those reviews that I've read. When I first read those adulatory reviews, I was skeptical. Now, I can say those praises are justified. It is amazing.

    There is an R2 bus stop just 1 block from the house, going directly to the Fort Totten metro station, thus offering easy access to the entire Washington D.C. area.

  • Jeannette was very gracious, showed me the room and facilities and directed me to a couple of local restaurants. Breakfast was always more than adequate, and the room itself was clean and very spacious.

  • My experience here was wonderful! The room is enormous and very comfortable. It is a bedroom with an attached living room. The desk was very large and provided a great computer work space for me.

    This is a great location if you are working at the National Archives II or do not need to be right in downtown DC. I had a car and could drive to the metro in about 10 minutes. I used the Green Line stations at Prince George's Plaza and West Hyattsville.

    Jeannette is gracious and accommodated my need to check in early. I appreciated that very much.

  • Jeannette was a terrific host, the room was large and well appointed. The very big bed and pillows clean and extremely comfortable. We had full access to the kitchen and bathroom, again all very clean. Jeannette also dropped us at the metro each morning which was terrific. As our first Air b& b experience we can only hope to stay elsewhere that is as comfortable.

  • My two friends and I stayed at Jeannette's place for a little getaway and we had a fabulous time! Jeannette is a lovely host, very warm and friendly. Fresh fruit at breakfast was delicious and the mini fridge with drinks and water was a very nice touch. 7-8 min drive to the metro where we could easily get to Washington. We would stay here again.

  • J'ai passé un excellent séjour chez Jeanette! Elle est très acceullante, serviable et disponible (tout le temps). Elle m'a gentiment accompagné aux archives nationales (NARA) en voiture, faire des courses et au métro. C'était une chance de l'avoir à me côtés! Encore merci Jeanette, mon séjour s'est aussi bien passé grâce à vous :)
