The space

In a city renowned for 18th and 19th century architecture, you will find our late 20th century townhome has all the modern conveniences of home in a beautifully appointed three-story Old Town townhome.

The Library Suite will be your private bedroom with en suite bath. It features four six-over-six windows, facing both east and south, which stream in sunshine during the morning and afternoon hours. Wooden blinds darken the room for luxurious sleeping in. Chockfull of hotel-style amenities like all-white sheets and towels, minty body wash, shampoo and conditioner, makeup mirror, hair dryer, iron and ironing board, this quiet spot boasts a queen-size four poster bed and books galore for restful evenings. There’s even a 36-inch flat screen TV, DVD player and Wi-Fi access to keep you in touch with work, friends and family. Whole Foods and the gourmet-centric Balducci’s are a ten-minute walk, as are countless restaurants featuring eclectic world cuisine for every budget.

Guest access

The private room is equipped with all the necessities, and guests are free to enjoy our patio. Smoking is not permitted in the house, but is fine on the patio provided you clean up after use. Guests can avail themselves of coffee or tea and the use of the double-door refrigerator and microwave in the kitchen. For those traveling by car, we provide you with a private designated parking space – a rarity in Old Town.

Interaction with guests

This is our family home. Though we are busy most days, we are happy to offer you privacy or conversation. There is one shared entrance which you will have a key to during your stay,

The neighborhood

Our townhome is in a quiet neighborhood just three blocks to vibrant King Street and a quick walk to the King Street Metro.

Getting around

Reagan National Airport is two stops away and DC is an easy 25-minute ride on the Metro. In addition, the city offers a free trolley along King Street with stops every two blocks. It runs from the King Street Metro station to the Potomac River for sightseeing, shopping in eclectic boutiques, or touring the Torpedo Factory with its dozens of artists’ studios. In addition, Capital Bike Share has several locations nearby.

Other things to note

We have had many guests in the year or so of being AirBnB Super Hosts and we have enjoyed meeting travelers from around the world and welcoming them to our home as we look forward to welcoming you.
