Who we are:
Adam and Jen are your hosts. Adam works a government job by day and makes custom hardwood furniture by night and weekend; Jen is a Physician Assistant by day and has built a beautiful garden in our yard, sews, and does all sorts of crafty things. Our dog, Britta, loves people; but she does not have access to your space. If you don't love dogs, we can arrange to ensure you don't have any contact with her (like when you come to the front door).
We have wireless internet (password provided upon check in); there is a TV and a Roku player for streaming Netflix/Pandora in the room...but we do not have cable, just a few network channels
If you're driving, let us know and we can work out a parking pass, or perhaps put you in our driveway space (if you have a small car).
The washer/dryer are just through the door into our basement...if you need to use them, we can arrange that.
Fresh towels will be in the bathroom for you at arrival
Shampoo/conditioner/bodywash/hairdryer are located under the sink in the bathroom
If you have questions about availability just send us a quick note!
Guests have a private entrance to the room, access to their own TV, Fridge, bathroom, and microwave. Wireless internet is available with Netflix and Pandora streaming through the TV via Roku. Upon request, we can provide access to the washer/dryer.
Interaction with Guests
We love to meet our guests and occasionally chat with them between their trips. We are happy to answer any questions and fulfill reasonable requests. Occasionally, guests join us for a drink or participate in small gatherings at our home. Otherwise, we assume most guests choose our listing so they can have a unique experience and their own space; but if you want to hang out, just let us know!
Our neighborhood is unique: we are between two bustling areas (H ST NE and Eastern Market). Both of those areas are full of restaurants, bars, shops, and positive urban energy. Our block, and the ones immediately adjacent, are home to quiet families who enjoy the nearby amenities, but also the relative tranquility of our flower and vegetable gardens.
If you rent a car, you may find it convenient to leave it parked at our place and take one of many public transportation options. We are very close to the D6 and X8 bus lines, which will take you downtown, near the monuments, or to Union Station, where you can take the metro nearly anywhere you want to go. We are also just 1 block away from a large bikeshare station. If you're unfamiliar with bikeshare programs, we encourage you to (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) "Capital Bikeshare" and see what it is all about. In nice weather, it is a great way to experience the city (that is, if you're comfortable on bicycles).
We have a few maps in the room, but have found many guests bring their own, or prefer to use a mobile device to navigate.
1. Please communicate: let us know what you need, when you'll be arriving/leaving, etc.
2. No smoking
3. No pets
This is a safe, urban neighborhood--kids play outside with minimal supervision, people are generally friendly, and you can walk to bars and restaurants without trepidation. However, it is a city neighborhood--please be careful at night, do not leave valuables in your car, and pay attention to your surroundings.
Jen and I have odd schedules and curiosities about our jobs you may not be used to. Jen works in a hospital, so she is sometimes home during the day, and sometimes works nights. When she is at work, sometimes she cannot respond right away to her mobile phone. Adam does not have his mobile phone available at work. As such, we may not be immediately available should something come up during your visit. However, we will do everything we can to make sure you have the information and resources you need to have a great stay and figure out any obstacles that may arise.
We LOVE living here. We like meeting new people, enjoying the outdoors, being creative and crafty, and seizing the day.
We hope to provide you with a comfortable place to explore the city--we'd love to help you get around and enjoy your time here as much as we do.
