Up for grabs: a sweet private bedroom in a beautiful antique row house in DC's historic Truxton Circle neighborhood, with easy access to the Bloomingdale, Shaw and NoMa neighborhoods. The street is quiet and tree lined and just the place for a stopover in DC for a few days to hit the Smithsonians, see the monuments, or hobnob with the Obamas.
The house is a ten to fifteen minute walk from the metro (equidistant to Shaw and Mt Vernon on the green and yellow lines and slightly farther to the Red Line at NoMa) -- and equally close to some of DC's hottest bars and restaurants. And the shower isn't scary at all!
Free parking on premises
Definitely no smoking in the house, but there's a backyard you can smoke in if need be.
Sadly, can't accommodate your pet.
