About this listing
3rd floor bedroom with PRIVATE bathroom/shower. Modern townhouse, close to DC Metro. Wi-Fi/TV in room. Walk to restaurants/shopping. Street parking available. Kitchen/fridge available to share.
We have a friendly, well behaved dog (Belle) who loves people but will not be in your private space.
Cozy third floor location offers awesome privacy. Tons of storage space if you need it. Two big windows with adjustable "black out" blinds so you can choose to "let the sunshine in" or snooze late in comfortable quietude. Third floor has it's own climate control. Adjacent room great for a yoga mat or two. Full closet with all the hangers you'll need. Comfy reading chair and a selection of books and movies to enjoy.
You can roam the whole house and share our great kitchen, fire up the grill and enjoy the front porch or backyard at your leisure. Plenty of room to store food/drinks. Whip up an espresso or a hot cup of tea.
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"
