The Space

Our house is a craftsman style with wrap around porch in a nice, safe neighborhood of other single family homes. Street parking is free and readily available.

The room comes with a comfortable queen bed and Wifi access. There is a spacious bathroom just across the hall that is on suite to the other listed room and shared with other AirBnb guests if the second room is occupied.

This listing is for one room with queen size bed, and we have another listing as well for a second bedroom with a queen size bed. So this space would be great not only for a party of one or two, but a family with 1-3 children or two couples as well.

We have lived in the DC area for over 20 years and are happy to recommend places to visit, lesser known areas of interest, and restaurants and bars to try.

Guest Access

Access to large private bathroom w/ shower and tub, fresh towels and toiletries provided. If both rooms are rented then the bathroom is shared with the other guests. It's a large bathroom with two vanities and a shower/tub so sharing is easy. May have use of washer and dryer. Also available for guests' use on the first floor is the sitting room with wood burning fire place, TV area, dining room, and chef's kitchen. Guests may use the front porch, back deck, and gas grill.

Interaction with Guests

We provide a tea and coffee for guests. We love to cook so if guests have similar tastes for dinner time and schedules allow we would be open to sharing a meal or two.

The Neighborhood

We are 1 block from the Bluemont Junction Bike-Running Trail and W&OD Trail which takes you to the Ballston area (where you may catch the Metro) and then to East to DC, and as far West as Purcellville, VA.

Getting Around

The house is just over 1 mile from the Ballston Metro Station (15 minute walk) and located near three bus lines. Access to I-66 and I-395 is approximately a mile and DC is about a 10 minute drive. Regan National Airport is less than 15 minutes away and once you get on I-66, Dulles Airport is about a 30 minute drive. The Ballston area continues to grow, and currently has many new bars and restaurants along Wilson Blvd, with other great spots close by along the Orange Line corridor in the Clarendon and Courthouse areas.

Other Things to Note

We share our home with a very sweet Irish Wolfhound who loves to make new friends. She is great with anyone, especially kids.
