Description

The Space

Gorgeous studio guest house with kitchen and bath right on top of Mt Washington. Near super cool Highland Park + Eagle Rock, the guest house comes with exceptional views, light and an amazing sunrise all to yourself!

Right atop of Mt Washington (close to downtown Los Angeles) sits this comfortable and secluded guest house. With views of the Angeles National Forest, Pasadena, and Alhambra, the house is front row to great sunrises and lots late day light. The guest house has a full kitchen, bathroom, eating area, and both an indoor and outdoor living space. It is also behind a privacy fence.

The house has a very cozy full bed, which accommodates two people comfortably, and a large walk in closet/dressing room. Keep the curtains open to enjoy the view, or close them for a little more privacy.

The guest house is very close to Highland Park, with cafes, architecture & design shops, book stores & restaurants. It's also close to Silver Lake, Glendale, Hollywood, Pasadena, & downtown LA. The train at the bottom of this hill can take you in minutes to MOCA, Disney Hall, China Town, & Little Tokyo.

Along with the guest house, you have access to the yard, which is shared with the main house, as well as the main house's deck, with a picnic table for evening dinners or conversation. Street parking is available right in front of the property, meaning you only have to walk a few steps from your car to the guest house.

We are very happy to have visitors at our guest house, and will treat you like a friend. We will welcome you when you arrive, and show you around, then we are always available to answer questions, or respond to problems, concerns. We have been known to become friendly with long term visitors, and may now and again extend an invitation to dinner on the deck, or a movie viewing in the main (website hidden) Washington is a gem of a neighborhood right in the city of Los Angeles, in fact, many consider it a retreat from the city below. Historically, it has been a haven for artists and creative types. The architecture of the houses in the neighborhood is unique (no house looks like any other!), with many mid-century and contemporary gems tucked into the hillside. Multiple recreation areas - great for walks and hikes - are within walking distance. They include Moon Canyon, Elyria Canyon Park, and the Carlin G. Smith Recreation (website hidden) Washington is also within a 10-15 minute drive to other exciting Los Angeles neighborhoods, including - Eagle Rock, Highland Park, Silver Lake and Los Feliz.

If you don't have a car, there is easy access to Los Angeles and Pasadena at the bottom of Mt Washington, which is about a ten minute walk. The Gold Line stops on Marmion Way and Museum Dr. and can take you downtown, to Union Station, from which you can travel anywhere in the city (or the state, as Amtrak also departs from there) or, take it in the other direction to Pasadena.

Grocery stores are easy to access as well, from Superior on Figueroa to Fresh and Easy on the other side of the mountain, on Eagle Rock Blvd.

California is in a serious drought, we ask that guests are extremely conscious of their water usage during their visit.

Street parking is available for guests with cars. As with many hillside communities in Southern California, the roads on Mt Washington as narrow and winding. We mention this as guests from out of town are often not accustomed to hillside driving. Once reservations are made, you will be given a suggestion on how to get to the guest house on a wider, more accommodating roads.

Also, given that the guest house is on the top of Mt Washington, access to grocery, laundry facilities, and restaurants requires a short drive back down the hill. If you choose to stay with us, there is a list of options for these things at the guest house.

My husband, son and I live in both Los Angeles and New York City. My husband is a filmmaker and I am a photographer and professor at Cal Poly Pomona. Our son is in third grade and does not yet have a website, but if he did, it would feature many of his Lego Star Wars creations or model railroad layouts.
