The space
Available mostly year-round. Both long-term and short stays are welcome. Long-term stays are for one person only or there will be an additional charge for two people over a 7-day stay.

In case you are allergic to cats, there are few running around though they do not go in the guest room unless you want them to and only one of them would be mildly interested in getting your attention!

I am a musician, lots of fun, and enjoy meeting new folks. I have a cozy private bedroom with a double bed and private entrance in a 1919 bungalow in Hyattsville's historic and arts district, which is less than two miles from the D.C. border and within five miles of the University of Maryland College Park, Catholic University, Howard University, Gallaudet University, and Trinity Washington University. Also about 20 minutes from NOAA, NASA, Discovery Communications, Bolling Air Force Base, Washington Navy Yard... It's a 1.3 mile walk/drive from the West Hyattsville metro on the Green Line, which is 1 stop outside of DC (15 minute ride to Gallery Place, 10 minute ride to U Street). A shuttle bus to the metro is just a block from the house, which operates on weekdays.

The house is within just a few miles of major thoroughfares such as 495/95, 50 (to Annapolis), and 295 (to Baltimore); 30-40 minutes from BWI; 25-35 minutes to Reagan National Airport, and about an hour from Dulles International Airport. We are about 20 minutes from Union Station.

The house is also walking distance to the new Arts District development - Busboys and Poets restaurant and events venue, Yes Organic Market, Tara Thai, Franklin's Brewpub, Vigilante Coffee, Pizza Paradiso, Shortcake Bakery, Chipotle, Elevation Burger, a frozen yogurt place, and a yoga studio. We also back up to Magruder Park, with walking and bike trails connecting to DC. We are within a few miles of the Chocolate City Brewing Company, New Columbia Distillery and Union Market.

We are also in the middle of the burgeoning Gateway Arts District, with the Washington Glass School and Studio, Glut Food Co-op, & Joe's Movement Emporium (drop-in yoga!) just a mile away.

I am an award-winning performing musician and songwriter in the region. I love flea markets, thrifting, vintage styles, cooking, gardening and just having loads of fun in general. I have cats running around the house but they don't enter the guest room unless you want to and only one of them, Francois, would be interested anyway. And, yep, I'm a big ol' Francophile - and with good reason, my great grandfather was from France - so it's in my blood. I wave the French and Ohio State Buckeye flags proudly (I'm an Ohio girl). Yes, I've had folks from Michigan stay in my guest room... I love meeting folks from all over the globe and making them feel welcome in my home. I've been told numerous times that my home is cozy by friends and people visiting for the first time. That makes me smile. I love traveling as well. I am comfortable traveling in style or low budget. It's more about the experiences instead of wear I lay my head! My favorite places are Paris and Texas so in tribute I like to say my house has the style of Paris, Texas. Still need to take a trip there!
