About this listing
A cabin in the city! Enjoy your own studio space in our backyard, with private bath and access to our backyard patio. In a quiet Capitol Hill neighborhood with access to the National Mall and downtown by foot, bus, bike or metro. Convenient to Union Station, two of DC's best neighborhoods for dining (Eastern Market, Barracks Row and H Street/Atlas District), Library of Congress, Folger Theater, and the Capitol. Free wifi and heating/air conditioning (with your own temperature controls!).
Cabin, cottage, studio...whatever you call it, it's a private space in our backyard that was inspired by the Tiny House craze (180SF/16sq meters). There is a small kitchen with tools to prepare a basic meal (and we are happy to lend you things from our own kitchen). TV streams Netflix and gets regular channels (not cable). Cleaned with natural cleaning products. Backs up to a field that has a Capital Bikeshare station. We do not like getting lost and we do everything we can to help guests avoid that too! We provide a binder with helpful info and maps on the walls to help you get oriented and plan your day.
Guests have access to the cabin and our backyard patio and may take advantage of the space to have breakfast or relax with a drink after a hectic day. We have a storage room in our basement if you need to store luggage for early arrivals or late departures.
Interaction with guests
We respect that guests vary in terms of what kinds of interactions they want with their hosts. We are available for advice, but we make ourselves scarce when guests want to be left alone. The great thing about the cabin is that guests have complete privacy, but we are not far away. And in the event that we happen to be traveling, our neighbors (who also host on Airbnb) are around to help.
Other things to note
We work hard to provide clear details and helpful information so that you get the most out of your stay in DC! Trash pickup comes around 9am on Monday mornings. You'll hear the truck. To keep costs low and simple, we do not charge a cleaning fee. Kindly use the garbage bins in the alley for your trash (green for trash, blue for recycling). We appreciate if you would strip the beds (including comforter cover) and leave them in a pile with your used towels.
Arriving early or staying late? You may store your bags in our storage room. Let us know and we will send you a code.
