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.
The room was great (comfortable bed!) and I really like the atmosphere in the house. Everything was very well organized for my arrival. Highly recommended!
Ross is a nice host. He lets us stay like our own place :)
Thank you so much for such a nice experience in DC.
The host made me feel very welcome. He helped me when I had questions about Washington DC, places to eat, etc. The room was very comfortable and warm. The kitchen and other common areas were at my disposal.
Overall - very satisfactory.
Ross made us feel very welcome. He is a great person. The location was fine - near the metro and easy street parking. We ate at Donku and loved it! The shared kitchen and bath were immaculate. My only reservation is the bed itself. As we pointed out to Ross it has developed a valley in the middle, making it very uncomfortable for two people to get a good nites sleep.
The room is as described and was all set up when I arrived. It's clean, comfortable, and just a quick walk from the Georgia Ave metro station. Ross is really friendly and easy to communicate with. I would definitely recommend a stay at Quincy House!
Ross was a fabulous host and I recommend his place strongly. The room was nicely prepared at my arrival. The room is big and the bed is very comfortable. During winter, the room gets quite cold and therefore I used the provided air heater constantly. Ross prepared a detailed information sheet about the neighborhood and a lot of city guides are in the shelf for further information about Washington DC. The house is just a five minute walk away from the Metro Station Georgie Avenue/Petworth. The Metro brings you in 15 minutes to Downtown. Trendy bars and restaurants are close by in the neighborhoods of Columbia Heights and U-Street. Ross and Eric (his roommate) made me feel at home during my 17 days stay. They helped me with a lot of practical things what I appreciated a lot.
My friend and I had a great time in DC. Staying at Ross' home was an added bonus. He has a beautiful home that's centrally located and very accessible to all major sights by metro. We stayed for 5 nights and didn't actually met Ross till our 3rd night there. He is very helpful with all your needs, so don't hesitate to ask him questions. I will definitely recommend him to friends.

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.
