You may occasionally hear normal living sounds upstairs - kitchen sounds, conversation, our fun-loving cats - but we now keep things quiet from 11 pm to 7 am. For very light sleepers, we have a Sharper Image white noise clock radio that will lull you to sleep.
Fantastic location! We're in the heart of the city of Takoma Park, on the Washington DC-Maryland border. We're 7 miles from the White House, Capitol Hill, the National Mall, the Smithsonian, the Botanical Gardens, and many famous museums and art galleries.
Our neighborhood is friendly, and very walkable. Takoma Park is known for its many large trees and eclectic Victorian homes, its flowering foliage, hilly streets, and its friendly and diverse community atmosphere. There is plenty of open space and several parks nearby. Our town is home to many political notables, authors, artists, and musicians. A short walk into Old Town takes you to a variety of new restaurants, pubs, coffee shops, an organic food co-op, gift shops, clothing boutiques, antique stores, an award-winning spa.... and more! And don't miss our famous Farmer's Market each Sunday!
We're a 10-minute walk to the Takoma Park Metro Station on the red line, then a 15-20 minute subway ride takes you right into the heart of Washington, DC. (We offer car rides to and from the metro, esp. for those with young children and luggage.) Our public transportation system is extensive and affordable, it's easy to get just about anywhere in the DC metropolitan region. Prefer to bike? Takoma Park has just installed two bike-share racks close by.
The Amtrack Train station is at Union Station, connected to the Red Line on the Metro, a 15-min ride from here. Three airports serve the DC metropolitan area: Dulles (IAD), Reagan International (DCA), and Baltimore-Washington International (BWI). All three are approximately 35-45 minutes from our B&B and securing transportation from the airport to our home is easy - need help? - just ask!
We go the distance to accommodate our guests and offer a variety of services. For modest fees, we offer rides to and from the Takoma Park Metro Station, same-day laundry service, babysitting, and access to a charcoal grill all set up for grilling out.
We also host SPECIAL EVENTS! Birthday parties, brunches, bridal showers, business meetings, retreats, cocktail or dinner parties.... just ask!

Fantastic B&B in Takoma Park! We stayed for the weekend with our dog and enjoyed Anne's hospitality and warm muffins at breakfast. She includes little instructions throughout the house for how to use things as well as recommendations for places to eat -- all of which we found helpful. Will definitely return!
Takoma Bliss was the perfect home base for the DC area college visits my son and I had planned. The space was lovely and we had plenty of room. Anne was a great communicator and has truly thought of everything to make her guests welcome and comfortable. She was available to us but let us come and go as if it were our own space.
I highly recommend Takoma Bliss and Anne. The only issue some people may have is that you can hear activity upstairs. It didn't bother us but if you're sound sensitive you might want bring earplugs and a white noise machine. I use them at night whenever I travel and slept like a baby. Enjoy!
My stay with Anne was short but really lovely. The location was great. Check in and out were very easy. The cottage was very clean and neat and offered everything I could have wanted. It was very quiet and I felt at home right away. I was sorry to have to leave early in the morning because I missed out on the homemade muffins that are offered. Overall, I would happily recommend this space to others and I would definitely stay there again.
Beautiful Host and great family location easy walking distance to food, parks, and shopping. Stay was during winter season but would have liked to been there during warm weather to access the included backyard and patio provided. The only disclaimer I would say is for light sleepers noise from the home above may be hard early in the morning.
This was a surprise gem! The location was perfect - easy to get to NW DC where I had to be every morning, and literally right around the corner from downtown Takoma Park. Loved the house! I felt right at home there and Anne was very accommodating.
I highly recommend this inn!
I am glad I found Takoma Bliss as our place for the seasonal Christmas Potluck Brunch. Anne was very diligent in helping to make our family event and short stay very successful. Thanks to Anne's " hostess with the mostest" attitude, i will certainly keep her in mind for future plans.
We would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking to visit DC. The bed was comfy, the whole place is beautiful, and the breakfast muffins were delicious! Transport to the city was quick and easy. Anne looked after us so well, I honestly have nothing bad to say.
I hosted a party at Anne's place, and I have to say, it could not have gone more smoothly, thanks to Anne. She was so easy to work with, and went above and beyond to make sure the place was clean, and that there was a fire in the firepit for my guests. Everyone loved the house, and we all had a great time! I would definitely book again.
We had a great time at Takoma Bliss! Anne was very welcoming and we really enjoyed getting tasty baked goods every morning for breakfast. The space was very cozy and inviting, and we enjoyed relaxing on the comfy couch in the evenings. Even though it rained for most of our visit, we had a good time exploring Takoma Park and Washington DC-- the metro and restaurants in Takoma Park were easily accessible, which was great. Next time we need a place to stay in the area, we will be back!
I needed a "like home" kind of place for my family for their annual visit from New Zealand. Takoma Bliss offered ample space for the kids to play and for us to eat in. This more-like-an-apartment-with-private-porch B&B is in a very quiet location and close to playgrounds and the center of town. The five-year-old spent hours with the wading pool, water hose, and toys and exploring garden bugs. Our accommodating host gave us privacy but was available to help us find restaurants and offer ideas for things to do in the midst of a government shutdown! She is a master muffin maker and we will return. This is a great find.
