Interaction with Guests
I love a good chat, but respect your privacy. We provide an affordable alternative to over-priced hotels, just be mindful of the fact that you're in our home. We do our best to keep noise to a minimum aside from the fact that you will hear our daughter walking around starting at about 7:30am. We ask that you not slam doors, blast the t.v or stay in the room all day while expecting us to not walk freely around upstairs. Our home is ideally suited for tourists who will spend most of the day out and about, not work-from home types who want to sleep until noon and come home late.
Forest Glen was established in 1961. We're situated near a beautifully expansive park, close to lots of great restaurants and public transportation along Columbia Pike and just four miles to historic Ft. Myer and the awe-inspiring Air Force Memorial.
16G metro bus stop is visible from our home, a taxi/uber ride will get you to the National Mall in approximately 12-15 minutes as long as it's not rush hour.
Other Things to Note
If you request a late check-out, I'm happy to store your luggage in the hallway but ask that you vacate the room by 11am so I can begin cleaning for the next guest. I often do this during my lunch break. It's easiest to communicate with me via text since I'm a musician who can't talk on the phone during rehearsals or performances.
Absolutely no smoking indoors or overnight guests who are not part of the original booking. Please do not ask to have packages mailed to our home! Besides that, we're a pretty tolerant family who have had mostly good experiences so far. Check in is after 4 pm and before 11pm. We may be able to accomodate a slightly ealier check-in on some days if you contact us ahead of time. We ask that you do not come upstairs to use our kitchen since we both work odd hours and often have irregular sleep schedules. If you have questions or concerns while we're home, just send a text to make sure we're available, thanks!
