The Space

While working, studying, or visiting in Silver Spring/DC, you can stay in our comfortable, well-maintained B&B home, with use of all common rooms, instead of an impersonal hotel. The room includes a trundle bed that can also be made up as a king or two twins. There is a desk as well as closet and drawer space and a view of the rear garden. A full bath is a few steps away in the hall. This is a homestay not a cheap hotel.

AIRP residents are very welcome! We have had several groups stay with us while attending the review course at AFI Theatre.

What guests like: The house is convenient to AFI Silver and two metro stations to get to Washington DC and tourist attractions. We are walking distance to stores, restaurants and a lively entertainment district in downtown Silver Spring and the eclectic shops of Takoma Park and a beautiful jogging/biking trail along Sligo Creek nearby.

AIRP residents are very welcome! We have had several groups stay with us while attending the class at AFI Theatre. They appreciate the close proximity to class and the quiet comfort we offer for studying, preparing meals and relaxing. We appreciate the U.S. and international acquaintances we've made as their hosts.

Interaction with Guests

We take our interaction cues from our guests. Some are more private than others and we respond accordingly. If we don't anticipate your needs please tell us during your stay. We are not early birds so our guests can have the kitchen to themselves in the morning and we try to schedule our evening meal after our guests. I enjoy baking and sharing the results with our guests. We enjoy sharing our hospitality. Some of our guests have become lasting friends.

The Neighborhood

This home is in an urban and eclectic neighborhood at the nexus of DC, Silver Spring and Takoma Park. Two Redline Metro stations are one-mile away--Takoma & Silver Spring. Our community is family oriented and quiet but with all the urban resources you need to easily shop, dine-out, see a film and more, many are within walking distance. We are also near a tranquil, woodsy park with a lovely hike/bike/jog trail along a creek.

Getting Around

We are one mile from 2 Metro stations and one-half block from a bus that will take you to both stations. The Takoma Station is in DC and cheaper if you're coming from that direction. Silver Spring is the first station in MD from DC and convenient to shops and restaurants. Also the neighborhood is very bike/walkable.

Other Things to Note

We have 2 cats, so if you are allergic, this is not the place for you. If you are traveling with a pet, your request will be thoughtfully considered and if accepted, please add an additional guest to your booking.
