Private room and bath, 5 blocks from Columbia Heights Metro! This lovely, partly renovated 100 yr old Victorian home with a big garden and wrap-around porch can be your urban retreat! With great bus service right out the front door and a short walk to Metro, our location in hip Mt. Pleasant connects easily to any part of town. Bike rental and lots of ZipCars nearby, too. .
Breakfast buffet is included in your room rate -- see description below -- you'll love the pear and peach preserves made from our own fruit trees!
This cheerful north- and east-facing room is freshly painted and furnished with vintage French provincial cherry wood furniture; hot water radiators keep it warm in winter and individual adjustable air conditioners cool the room in summer. The queen bed is always made with good sheets, extra pillows and a down comforter. It has in-room cable television and wi-fi. There is an attached private bathroom with a very good double-head shower and two sinks. We provide high quality hotel-type towels and bath products.
Three other bedrooms are available for additional charge. Please see "My other listings".
There's lots to do in our Mt. Pleasant neighborhood, with shopping, restaurants and bars a short walk away. Close to Columbia Heights (more great shopping and restaurants!), Adams Morgan (nightlife!), National Zoo (free!) and 2 miles to the White House. We have a good supply of guides and maps to assist you.
Soap, shampoo, hair-dryer and other bath amenities are provided. WiFi is available in the bedroom and throughout the house at no additional charge. A clothes washer and dryer are available for a fee.
We have a dog and two friendly indoor cats, but guest rooms are kept pet-free!
ABOUT GETTING AROUND
We are very accessible to Metro -- Get information about using MetroBus and MetroRail (subway) online at the WMATA website. Also, there are at least 8 different bus lines that serve our neighborhood, including the frequent 16th Street buses, the famous "42" line and the DC Circulator. Use the online tool to plan your trip to specific destinations with DC Metro Trip Planner -- just (website hidden) it!
AIRPORTS: Columbia Heights Metro, our closest station, is only 5 blocks away and is on the line that serves Reagan National Airport. The same line serves L'Enfant Plaza Station where you can get the 5A Express Bus to & from Dulles International Airport. Baltimore-Washington International Airport can be reached easily from our Metro Station as well; just take the Yellow Line a few stops to Greenbelt and connect to the express B30 bus for a quick trip to BWI.
TRAIN: If you are arriving at Union Station, getting here is a breeze. The Red Line Metro will carry you two stops to Brookland / Catholic University Station and from there the H4 bus will bring you across town directly to our doorstep.
PARKING: Parking is on-street and free; it is generally easy to find during the day, but does become more scarce at night.
ABOUT OUR BREAKFASTS
Each morning -- (phone number hidden) weekdays, (phone number hidden) weekends -- we offer a cold buffet with a variety of items with an emphasis on healthy choices, carefully selected. In addition to bagels, croissants and muffins from our local bakery, homemade preserves and jams from our own fruit trees are a highlight. There's a good selection of cereals (some gluten-free), including the BEST ever pumpkin seed granola. For those looking for a high protein, low carb alternative, there is rich, creamy Greek yogurt that is delicious with walnuts and almonds and a touch of honey. Our organic milk is delivered to us from South Mountain Creamery, our local dairy. It's non-fat but tastes like the rich high-fat version. A variety of fresh-cut fruit rounds out the selection. Of course, we have orange juice, good coffee and a nice variety of teas. Bon Appetit!

very quiet, safe neighborhood. comfy bed and good shower. nice to have coffee and breakfast provided. we stayed in bedroom # 4 and had a private bath; if i stay again, i might want to try the carriage house.
We really enjoyed our stay. The owners were very nice and accommodating. The room was clean and it was great to have coffee ready in the morning. Leslie and Joe were very nice and helpful. The location is great, blocks away from shops and a metro station. I would definitely stay here again.
We had a great stay at Leslie's and Joe's home. Altough we could only spend a few days in Washington we very much enjoyed our stay. Thank you very much again!
Une très jolie chambre avec salle de bains privée dans une belle maison. Un délicieux petit déjeuner, parfait avant de partir à la découverte de DC ! Le quartier est très agréable et animé, pas de problème pour rentrer seule le soir, les moyens de transport sont pratiques et pour les marcheurs, on peut même rejoindre la Maison Blanche à pied. Seul bémol : Leslie et Joe ne souhaitent pas que leurs hôtes arrivent à DC par bus style Megabus, mais il serait appréciable que cela soit écrit dans le règlement, plutôt que de l'apprendre au dernier moment.
Wonderful time at Shabby Chic #4! The room very cozy and bed just perfect. Joe and Leslie just lovely. Very knowledgeable and helpful and professional. Sometimes didn't even know they were there. The BNB close to everything! Would definitely recommend their place and hope to stay there again.
We have spend a very pleasant stay in Leslie & Joe place. They are very nice, accommodating and they spend some time to help us to enjoy our stay to DC. The bed and the towels are good.
Loved this B & B in a great neighborhood outside of downtown Washington DC. Our room was clean, bright, and the bed was simply perfect -- great sheets. Hosts were helpful and accommodating, but not overwhelming...it was so fun getting to know this neighborhood...some great bars on Mt. Pleasant Rd -- try TONIC.
We stayed at Mt. Pleasant Shabby Chic BnB for 3 days in September 2013. The house is just gorgeous, spacious, light and although it's an old house, Leslie and Joe take care of it very well. We enjoyed having drink and relax in comfy chairs at all round porch after busy day in DC. The room and bathroom (with quality toiletries) are spacious and clean. Although the BnB was full, we did not hear the neighbors from other rooms at all. Internet connection was in and out in our room but it worked fine downstairs in the living room. Breakfast was great, all types of cereals, fruit, bagels, muffins, nuts, jams, yogurts, tea, coffee, also gluten-free and dairy-free products. I should not forget the newspapers which were there every morning. Now and then we met their 2 cats which are super friendly and a dog who wants to play. It's about 10 minutes quick walk to the nearest metro station and it felt safe even when we were coming back after 11pm. Convenient store is just couple of minutes away. Leslie and Joe are great hosts.
The house is located in very quiet neighborhood with many restaurants in walking distance. DC attractions can easily be reached by public transportation. Leslie & Joe have been wonderful hosts, they did everything to make our stay highly enjoyable. The room was perfect, with a large private bath. We felt right at home, it really beats any hotel. This was our first airbnb experience, would definitely use airbnb again.
My husband and I stayed here because we had business in Bethesda, and we're so glad we chose Leslie & Joe's beautiful house! It has great atmosphere, it's full of books, cats and old furniture - all favorites of ours. Leslie and Joe were very welcoming and helpful, and lent us their SmarTrip Cards which made it so easy to get around by bus and metro.
I loved the neighborhood. We walked around a lot enjoying the diverse architecture and reading the Heritage Trail signposts, which told a lot about the history of Mount Pleasant. Shops and restaurants were all very close. Breakfast was amazing.
The room was great. We enjoyed having our own private bathroom. If we ever come back to Washington, we'll stay here again.
