Lovely accommodations in an architecturally interesting building. Pleasant historic neighborhood. Good access to Washington Metro subway system. Plan to stay there again in the near future. Somewhat steep stairs to reach the courtyard entry from the street may not be good for everyone. Otherwise, I would recommend highly to anyone who appreciates the B&B atmosphere.

This B & B has both a separate cottage, which is the historical building, and a new-but-looks-old house on the lot, giving guests both the historical feel of Capitol Hill and the modern bonus of a private bath and large closet in the room. The owners have the third floor, guest rooms on the second and public rooms on the...

Although we had booked a week in advance, there was no record of our booking in the register, however the "yellow room" was available (as seen in the house promotion photo) the three hats were still exhibited in the room on top of an ancient chest. The bed had two mattresses so that a mini high jump was needed to...

It sure seems these guests did not enjoy their stay with us. This is truly unfortunate. Some of their observations however we feel warrant some clarification. We note clearly on our website, and the reservation service we use informs every guest that we have both a dog and a cat. This should not be a surprise to any guest who...

Stayed in the 1870's Coach House private townhouse with family of 4. Owners were accommodating and friendly. Left very helpful written directions and suggestions in the house for us. Parked for free on the street. Tween-age boys enjoyed Garfield Park right across the street. Loved the charming style and decor of the house and the neighborhood surrounding. Restaurants within walking...

Our room was charming and well cared for. The breakfast was generous and we enjoyed the fact that it was all laid out in the kitchen so guests could just help themselves at their own leisure. Diane and Mark are wonderful and helpful hosts. The location is perfect for seeing the government buildings and monuments. It is a nice walk...

My husband and I had a wonderful experience at the Carriage House and would definitely book again. We arrived earlier than normal check in hours because of the train schedule from NYC. The owner was there to meet us and let us check into our room early. There is a number access code on the front door so we could...

The property is situated in a very safe area and is conveniently located within walking distance to Capital Hill, Metro Bus stop and Metro subway. Our family had a wonderful experience and hopes to return soon in the future.

This B&B defied my basic assumption. Facilities vary, food varies, locations vary, but one always assumes that B&B owners are social, people who enjoy meeting people and who willingly opening their doors to offer hospitality. The feeling in this home was the exact opposite. We felt like we were an inconvenience on these people's lives and if it wasn't for...

We wanted to stay at a Bed and Breakfast near the National Mall and preferred one within walking distance. We arrived after hours and there were directions on how to get in, plus a note on the table explaining where we were staying. Everything was how we expected it, and we even had a permit for our vehicle! In the...
