Stroll the tree lined streets of historic Georgetown with their beautiful historic homes, enjoy a meal on a back patio of a Wisconsin Ave café then take a postprandial amble down Wisconsin Ave towards M Street window shopping the galleries, fine furnishing and antique boutiques. Take time to explore Dumbarton Oaks and Tudor Place, two of the most significant historic homes in Washington, DC, each features magnificent gardens and is open to the public. Both homes are just a block away from the house.
This cozy home is best suited for one or two individuals, a couple. We tried to be very thorough, but do not hesitate to let us know what questions you have.
Wisconsin Ave is a block away and offers numerous bus services to take you wherever it is you need to be in the greater Washington area. Take a Northbound bus to Tenley Town Station on the Metro Redline, take the D6 Metro Bus to DuPont Circle (Metro Station), The White House, Downtown & The National Mall, Union Station & the US Capitol Building. To plan your travels around the city go to the Washington Metro Area Transit Authority website, or to and put in your location as “32nd St NW & R St NW” and then enter your destination. It's far better to be above ground and enjoying the view in this part of the city.
Interaction with Guests
Autonomous travel at its best!
This is Georgetown!
No smoking please.
Arrival is after 3pm, departure is before 10am. Let us know if you need flexibility due to flight times.
Much as we love children, because we have antiques and the narrow staircase this is not a child friendly environment.
Sitting area under the flowering shade trees on the patio. Very pleasant quiet space in the heart of Georgetown

Our latest addition are vacation properties for Washingtonians. See the Washington Vacations section on our website for homes in the nearby mountains. Take a few days away from the bustle of the city to explore our bucolic countryside little changed over the past 2 to 3 centuries. Visit wineries and orchards, significant Civil War battlefields and historic towns, hike the Apalachian Trail or follow in the footsteps of our founding fathers by visiting their homes. There is plenty to do that beckons you to leave the city for a weekend or a week.
A bit about me...I am a former Californian who, after 12 years in DC, is now an honorary Washington native. Being well traveled both domestically and internationally has given me a great appreciation for the enrichment contact with others brings to our experience. I am well-versed on the "must-see" sights, monuments and museums of our culturally rich city, along with the unique experiences your find only in Washington. We share that insight with our guests in our property Welcome Guides which we send upon confirmation.
We very much enjoy hosting visitors to our Nation's Capital and ensuring that they are able to make the most of their visit.
