Interaction with Guests
We tend to leave town when guests are staying at our house, but are always available via phone or email to answer any questions.
Mt Pleasant is one of the most beloved neighborhoods in the city because it is a quiet reprieve from city life, while still being close to (website hidden) Pleasant has dozens of cafes, restaurants, bars and papuserias. Nearby Cleveland Park, Adams Morgan, Columbia Heights and the trendy 11th Street strip offer more dining and nightlife options within a 15 - 20 minute walk or short bus ride. We are just off Rock Creek Parkway, which allows for fast and easy driving down to the Mall via Beach Drive - cherry blossoms anyone?
The national zoo is within walking distance only 1/2 mile away.
Walk to bus routes within 3 blocks and metro station .8 miles away to access the entire (website hidden). Pleasant also has a Capital Bikeshare station to rent a bike by the half hour or by the day to take to over 120 locations throughout the metro area.
There is off street parking in the driveway in the back of the house which will fit one large, or two small cars. Because it's not a busy street, there are always spots for on-street parking on nights/weekends - the street is zoned so you have to have local tags to avoid getting tickets during weekdays between 8am and 7pm.
There is a rental unit below the house and neighbors on both sides and we ask guests to be respectful of our neighbors and not be loud after midnight. This is our house, so treat it with care! And please, no smoking.
