Beautiful one-bedroom with queen-size bed and private in-room bathroom located in renovated modern brick rowhouse in Glover Park. We also have a queen size sleep sofa in the family room downstairs with a private in-room bathroom so you can bring your family to DC as well. In addition we have 2 twin air mattresses that can fit easily in the upstairs or family room bedrooms so we can accommodate 6 people.
We are located just north of Georgetown and minutes away from many of Washington, DC's amazing historic sites. Glover Park is a quiet, safe neighborhood with lots of dogs, kids, and people of all ages.
The queen bedroom includes a closet for your use, and a desk with two chairs. It also includes a TV with cable service. If you're interested in using an air mattress in the family room, there is a private bathroom with sink and toilet for your use (in addition to the full bathroom adjoining the family room).
We offer FREE wireless Internet, off-street parking with a FREE visitor parking permit, and a front porch and deck to enjoy the morning and afternoon sunshine. We'll provide you with maps of DC and brochures of lots of local attractions, and help guide you to where you want to go. We're here to make sure you have a wonderful time in Washington -- it's a great city to visit. We're comfortable chatting with you, or giving you your space, whatever you prefer.
A delicious continental breakfast with fresh-brewed coffee and/or tea is also included.
A bus stop at the end of the block takes you directly to the Dupont Circle subway in 15 minutes which gives you easy access to DC, Maryland, and Virginia. A Capital Bikeshare (rental bicycles) docking station is located at the end of the block too. You can bike from our house to the White House in 30 minutes. You can walk from the house to many restaurants, bars, Starbucks, Whole Foods, and a drug store just a few blocks away. The National Cathedral is a 15-minute walk away too.
You have access to your bedrooms, the kitchen when we serve breakfast, and the front porch which has comfortable chairs and a table. You can store some food/drinks in our refrigerator. We prefer that the kitchen and living room be our private space during non-breakfast hours, as we live in the house.

My girlfriend and I stayed for one night with Jane and Max. Our room, like the whole house, was clean and tidy, and the bed was really comfortable. The neighborhood is really nice, and the parking pass was a plus.
Jane and Max were both really nice and helpful, and tried to make our stay as comfortable as possible. We all talked a little the first evening, though we were tired and went to bed early. In the morning, Max laid out a nice breakfast assortment, though we only had a bit of coffee because we were in a rush to drop off my girlfriend to a conference. When I came back, I ate a little and talked with Max. We had a very stimulating conversation.
Overall, it was a very pleasant experience. Our hosts made us feel welcome and were very accommodating.
Our hosts, Jane and Max, were very accommodating and friendly but gave us space as needed. The room was clean, had two sunny windows for fresh air, and the bed was extremely comfortable. Breakfast was home-made granola parfait and hot coffee. Really quite neighborhood. We also rented bikes (a block away) to tour DC.
We had the best experience at Jane & Max and Barleys. They are superb hosts and the row house so charming and neat as a pen as we say Iowa. This was our first experience with Airbnb and we feel we started at the top. Breakfast was a added surprize with indgredients we had to write dowm and find for our kitchen. OH my that Cabot's Yogurt.
We got the best advice on everything to restaurants in the area to the trip to the National Galery to see the Piero Cosimo exhibit. As we were here to get daughter Liz relocated here from college, they were even engaged with helping us connect with various avenues of help. ANd such sound and caring help was very much appreciated.
When we come back for visits our home away will be at Cozy comfort. Judi & liz
The hosts were very friendly and nice. They gave us flexible checking in/out time and gave us suggestions for the trip. The room was quite, nice and clean. My friend and I had a good time staying there.
This was my first visit to Wash. D.C in over 20 years. Jane and Max were very helpful. They provided me with directions and even an umbrella. The public transportation was close and very convenient. I had a delicious breakfast in the morning. Enjoyed great conversations with both Jane and Max. Their home was clean and comfortable. For those with out a car, there are many stores and restaurants in walking distance including Whole foods where I picked up my lunch. I would welcome the chance to stay at Jane's home again.
My boyfriend and I both enjoyed our stay at Jane's place. The description of the place is very accurate. It is a truly cozy, comfortable and convenient home. The neighborhood is very quiet, safe and beautiful, and at the same time located near food stores and dining places. Public transportation will take you anywhere you need in no time. Jane and Max are wonderful hosts and we felt very welcome in their house. I would highly recommend this place to anyone.
Jane and her boyfriend were generous, welcoming hosts. My beau and I enjoyed a good night's sleep and were treated to an excellent breakfast in the morning, at no extra charge! Highly recommend.
My boyfriend Max and I are both semi-retired and enjoy the adventure of being an Airbnb hosts, as well as hosts for dogs through DogVacay.
I love to keep active - tennis, biking, volleyball, going to the gym. I love gardening - my front garden is all flowers. I have flowers on my back deck and "my crops" of lettuce and herbs too, and a plot in a community garden. I grew up on a dairy farm in Minnesota so farming is part of me.
I have a degree in history and enjoy seeing and reading about history. I've been part of a book club for about 15 years and have enjoyed reading some great books and meeting some great people. I am curious about life and search on the Internet for many things so that I can learn.
Max and I really enjoy traveling - both in the U.S. and abroad. Max grew up in Italy and is fluent in Italian. I can speak some German. Max is semi-retired working as a freelance editor and teaching Italian. We're both easy-going and enjoy meeting people. As we both head toward retirement, we'd like to do more traveling and volunteer work.
Life is sweet!
