Classic Capitol Hill home on a quiet street with renovated and light-filled interiors, exposed brick, gourmet kitchen, amazing outdoor space & 4 BR/2BA. Great for families/groups, and steps to Lincoln Park, E. Market, US Capitol and two metro stops!
Not only is our home right in the middle of one of the most historic and charming neighborhoods in the nation, but it is freshly renovated and big! In fact, one of the most common themes amoung Hill residents is "width envy." With some row houses only measuring 9 feet wide, our home ranks amoung some of the largest and deepest on Capitol Hill. We also have a stunning screened porch and backyard space where we spend countless hours relaxing and entertaining. Between an open floor plan, 2 queen beds, 3 twin beds, 2 twin air mattresses and plenty of comfy seating space, there is ample room for everyone in your party to stretch out after a long day of sightseeing in DC.
Guests have access to our entire home, two private off-street parking spots, outdoor entertaining space and everything the Hill has to offer from restaurants, galleries, parks and tourist sights!
Interaction with Guests
We aim to be the most helpful owners to our guests without interfeering in any way with their stay. We will never be present during a guest's stay, but will be reachable and accessible in case any needs arise.
Literally in the shadow of the US Capitol Dome, the "Hill" is historic, whimsical and exciting! And yet, it is so much more than the typical tourist sights. Easilly one of the hottest neighborhoods in the city to live in, Capitol Hill boasts quiet tree-lined streets on which to stroll brick sidewalks to any number of parks, restaurants, shops, markets and attractions you can think of.
Getting to and from Capitol Hill is one of the best parts of the neighborhood! If you are driving, we have two off-street parking spots. And once you are here, we are right on the Orange and Blue metro lines, making wherever you are going in DC a cinch. Our home is only 4 blocks to the Stadium Armory metro station, but the Potomac Ave. and Eastern Market stops are almost as close. In addition, we are a block away from two seperate Capital Bike Share stations and the bus lines run throughout Capitol Hill. Lastly, the Hill's conveniece to I-95 makes arrival and departure easy and fast.
Other Things to Note
Our home has two flat screen TVs, cable, WiFi, a small library, a giant soaking tub with a double shower and about every kitchen gadget you could want!
Our only rules are no smoking and no pets. We also require a basic insurance waiver form, but otherwise we just expect our guests to treat our home as they would their own, and to enjoy it as much as we do!
We had a great weekend at Tom's house. The location is unbeatable, charming neighborhood with great access to public transport. The house was perfect for not only the adults in our party but the small children as well. It was a great home base for our reunion and DC weekend. Highly recommend!!
This was a great place to stay! Our group thoroughly enjoyed this spacious and beautiful house (the heated bathroom floors were an especially big hit on cold DC nights and mornings!)
Tom was just great too, an exceptional host, he made everything very easy.
I highly recommend this house if you have a larger group. We were all able to gather around the dining table together and the living room has ample sitting for us all!
We really enjoyed the stay in this beautiful home. We travelled with kids and the house was very kid friendly. There was plenty of space for our party of 7. The neighborhood was very convenient to all the attractions. Tom, was very helpful in making sure we had all the information we needed about the home and the area. I would definitely recommend this home. Thanks again Tom, we had an unforgettable family vacation.
It was a beautiful house with a great location . We loved the Christmas decorations too! It felt like home from home ... Tom checked all was ok and gave us a number in case we needed to contact him. Good comprehensive information in the house too about Washington . Yeah 10/10 to the Carpenter Family x Thankyou from the Meffan family
We had a great time staying at Tom's place! The house is charming and conveniently located in Washington DC so it was easy to see all the sights. We were there with 6 adults and 4 kids and we had ample space for everyone. The house is fully stocked with anything you might need and Tom generously allowed us to use just about anything we wanted. Overall, a great experience!
Tom provided timely thorough information and responses. We took a mini-vacation with several immediate family members and we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The home is neat clean and nicely appointed. Thanks for sharing your home with us! Glenn and family.
Tom send us an 8 page document with not only instructions, etc. about their lovely house, but also tips on transportation and suggestions for sights to see (off the beaten path). Our train was not until late afternoon so he was very accommodating in letting us leave our luggage on the back porch. The house is beautiful and VERY clean. We would definitely stay here again!
We are a family of 5 living the urban life right in the heart of Capitol Hill. We love our city and our neighborhood and enjoy exploring its nooks and crannies every day!
