About this listing
Welcome! Thank you for viewing this private guest room and bath which is in a private brick home in the Takoma DC area. Are you seeking a comfortable and economical accommodation? This is a convenient location for working, or visiting in the Washington, DC area.
This cozy guest suite is conveniently located within walking distance of Takoma Metro station (red line). Or take the bus directly from our corner to the station - it's quick, only 4 or 5 minutes. Normally it is a 20-25 minute METRO ride to downtown areas including Union Station, U.S. Capitol Building, Silver Spring as well as major tourist attractions. I provide complimentary SmarTrip card for guest to use on both buses and METRO trains. SmarTrip gives you discounts for each trip. If driving, off-street parking is available.
I am an educated and well-traveled hostess who will help you feel at home. I've traveled to 39 countries including New Zealand, Peru, South Africa, Liberia, Kenya, Switzerland, Russia, Austria, Canada, Mexico, Japan, and India.
Your accommodations includes a clean and cozy private bedroom with a very comfortable double size 'real' bed and one fully stocked private bath, Wi-Fi, free off-street parking and central heat/ac.

Frequently called, "The Berkeley of the East' Takoma Park DC is a unique enclave with an interesting history (Victorian gentry, abolitionists, socialists, 7th Day Adventists, spiritualists, anti-nukes and hippies), has a village vibe and is more bohemian than the rest of Washington. Many writers, artists & photographers, potters & jewelry designers, musicians singers & dancers and those working in the healing arts reside in our little hamlet.
Within easy walking distance is Takoma's Old Town (business-dining-shopping). Places to visit include Cedar Crossing Tavern & Wine Bar, Mark's Kitchen, Olive Lounge, Middle Eastern Restaurant, Roscoe's, Capital Cheesecake, Souper Girl, Now and Then, House of Musical Traditions, Year Round Sunday Farmer's Market, Willow Street Yoga, the Dance Exchange and more.
I look forward to making your Washington holiday, business trip or relocation a happy and positive experience. If you have any questions, or concerns please send an e-mail for a quick response.
Enjoy your stay!
