We are keeping our bedroom, bathroom and office on the 2nd floor private.
Interaction with Guests
We're new at this, but our intention is to be available to the extent our guests are interested in hanging out. Happy to share our experience with the city, where and how to go, what's new, what's old and good, who's playing where, etc.
Most likely we will be around during our guests' stay but will make sure everyone has the space they want/need to get the most out of their stay.
Petworth is a great mix of quiet residential and happening new eating and shopping experiences, all within walking distance of our home. We are very close to a Capitol Bike Share stand and about 3 blocks or so from a Zip Car station. The Metro is about a 7 minute walk which will get you most places in the city in 20-30 minutes.
We love DOMKU. Scandinavian/Eastern European fair in a cool, funky environment (1/2 block away). CHEZ BILLY is a French bistro with a nice lounge. The PETWORTH CITIZEN is a brand new restaurant about a 1/2 block away as well, featuring pub food. QUALIA COFFEE is our favorite local coffee shop. They roast their own beans in a funky, laid back setting (Hipster alert!).
Rock Creek Cemetery is about a 20 minute walk but it is totally worth visiting if you're into amazing, historic cemeteries. Many, many interesting 'guests', huge vaults and monuments. DC's oldest cemetery (I think!).
Super convenient location to access all types of public transportation. 7 minute walk to the DC Metro (Green/Yellow Lines). From Reagan International it's a straight shot on the DC Metro Yellow Line to the Georgia Avenue/Petworth Metro Station which is just minutes from our house. Dulles and BWI are more complicated but we can help figure that out if you need us to.
Convenient Bus Stops within minutes. Capitol Bike Share 1/2 block away and Zip Car about 3 blocks away.
Parking is not included but street parking is typically available and we have 1 guest car pass for use.
Other Things to Note
We have a well behaved dog who will be an enthusiastic part of the welcoming committee but will otherwise give you your space (unless bribed with a treat). The Room is located on the 3rd Floor which requires walking up 3 flights of stairs. This is probably not suitable for anyone with any ambulatory difficulties. Our house is not "Child Proof"

Chris and Jean welcome us very kindly. They give us all informations, advices and you feel immediatly they like to welcome people in their house to discover Washington. They have a very nice 1920's house and it is a real and rare peaceful haven when you come back after walking all the day. Breakfast they offer us was a very good and quiet moment before leaving for a new busy day. Very clean and clear room, well located in a quiet area with some restaurants around, two minutes walking. Easy to reach from downtown by public transports, we have a nice journey there even we stay only one night.We'll come back in Washington and for sure there for longer!
Chris und Jean sind die besten Gastgeber, die man sich vorstellen kann. Die zwei Zimmer waren super sauber und ideal für uns und unseren Sohn. Wir wurden liebevoll verwöhnt mit Essen und Trinken (tolles Frühstück, Snacks etc.), Tipps und Hilfestellungen (Metrokarte, Regenschirm usw.) sowie der wunderschönen Atmosphäre im Haus. Jean und Chris haben unser Herz gewonnen und auch den Hund haben wir geliebt. 100 % Empfehlung.
Amazing! Exceeded our expectations. Lots of little touches such as metro cards, fantastic breakfast, coffee machine and lots of space. Had great meals just around the corner at Domku and Crane & Turtle. Fantastic and lovely hosts!
