Interaction with Guests
I work fairly long hours and so if you are visiting during the business week, we may not see too much of each other. As a rule I make myself as available as my guests would like me to be.
Quincy House is located just a five minute walk from the Georgia Avenue/Petworth metro station in the heart of the vibrant, thriving Petworth neighborhood. We are a close knit community of young families and professionals who place a premium on our neighborhood's historic homes, porch culture, and friendly style. You'll love it here!
Three blocks from the Georgia Avenue/Petworth Metro Station (green/yellow line) and the H8 bus stops right outside the front door. You can reach nearly all of the major sights within 15-20 minutes via public transportation.
Hello and welcome to Quincy House!
Whenever I welcome a new Airbnb guest into my home I always begin by telling them to make themselves "feel at home." I think this is a good rule of thumb -- one that balances an environment that relaxes the body and spirit with a standard of respect for others and the space around you.
I want your stay at Quincy House (whether in the Guest Room or Loft) to be a memorable one: make yourself comfortable and don't be afraid to ask for anything. I will always do everything in my power to make sure you are entirely satisfied. In return, I ask you to be respectful: of me, my roommate, and the house.
I've had quite a few guests and this general rule has worked out splendidly, so I don't anticipate changing it anytime soon. Just remember to ask if you have any questions (I always try my best to say yes.)
Other general rules of thumb:
- It is your responsibility to lock the door upon exit. During the weekday you will also be expected to arm and disarm the alarm (directions will be provided.)
- Please be mindful of placing wet things (cups, towels) on the woodwork.
- If you use the kitchen, you are expected to leave it as you found it (no dishes in the sink).
- Your are sharing the bathroom, so please leave it clean for the next user.
- After 10 pm, please be mindful that others in the house may be sleeping.
- No outside guests allowed unless cleared with me.
- In the winter or in the rain, please take your shoes off upon entrance.
- Ruby the dog will be crated when I am not home. She is young so still learning but very friendly.
Thanks for listening and I look forward to your stay.
Note that this sitting area is part of the room. There is another door (behind the photographer) the exits to the hallway.
I have to agree with so many of the other reviewers, it was a great place to stay. Comfy, clean room, nice house, convenient neighborhood with a short walk to metro. Beautiful gardens and yard. I actually never saw anyone until i was departing but Ross's emailed instructions pre-arrival were very helpful. I parked right out front with a parking pass he provided as well as a couple smartpass cards for the Metro. I had meetings right down town and was there in about 20 minutes, very convenient. Georgia Ave a couple blocks away has an array of stores, food, drink and i went to the Pitch Tavern, a Jamaican sports bar kind of place and the food, beer and people were great. House is on a quiet street across from green space with houses nicely taken care of and felt very safe in this part of Petworth. I was at meetings most of the day so basically only slept and showered here and recommend the Quincy House to anyone visiting DC.
As my first airbnb stay, Quincy house was better than expected. Ross the host and his roommate were very friendly, inviting, and helpful. The room was clean, comfortable and relaxing; which was everything I was looking for after a long drive from NY. Quincy is also set in a very safe and accessible location to public transportation, and cafes in the area. I highly recommend this host.
He is energetic co operative
I ve met him twice shortly but he was trying to help us to stay okay at his house
The room was comfortable and separated with bed room which was great. The house is so so so clean that I felt pressure to clean the room and restroom well after using it. great choice in washington
Ross and Leah were very great hosts in a beautiful house in a quiet neighborhood. The room and the bathroom were very clean and comfy. The house is very well secured with an alarm at the entrance and a fire alarm in the kitchen (sorry for having triggered it by mistake :)). We highly recommend these hosts!
Ross and his girlfriend were very nice hosts. The room and the house are lovely and the neighnourhood has everything you need.
Staying in Quincy house was most comfortable. The location is great and easily accessible from the metro stop. The house is clean and tidy. Everything is exactly as described, and perfectly organized!

About the Host, Ross
Welcome to Quincy House. I have been living in DC for five years now -- working in federal healthcare policy and constantly finding great, new things about this historic city. I love meeting new people from around our small world and I am truly excited to host you! I will do my best to make your stay as comfortable as possible. I believe the little details are what counts: A mint on your pillow; bamboo towels and sheets; a friendly smile greeting you.
The details: I am an attorney at a law firm downtown and manage pretty long hours so I may not be around too much during the weekdays. However, I do love wandering around our little neck of the woods when I have time. Petworth is a great place to call home and our house is warm, comforting, and clean.
I have one roommate that lives upstairs with me (there are four bedrooms in total.) His name is Eric and he is a great guy, working at a think-tank downtown. I also have a young puppy named Ruby who is very excited to meet you! Ruby is crated during the day (when I am not home) so you don't see her romping around without me. Don't worry - she may bark but will warm right up to you.For rent are one of our guest bedrooms, as well as the loft/attic space.
We keep the house very clean and it tends to be fairly quiet. If you are looking for a nice place to come home to at the end of the day, a place that takes away a bit of life's stress, you've come to the right place. I always do my best to make sure you are as comfortable as possible and if there are any special requests, please just let me know ahead of time and I will do my best to accommodate you.
