We love living in Columbia Heights. Our house is minutes by foot from loads of local restaurants and an easy metro ride to all the DC tourist sites. Our Airbnb space is a comfy, cozy suite on the third floor of our house. We live in the house, but the third floor is all yours. We like to give you to your privacy but are available as needed for questions and help. Welcome!
Our Airbnb guest suite is the third floor of our charming Victorian home in Columbia Heights -- a bustling, revitalized historic Washington D.C. neighborhood with a wide variety of restaurants and shopping -- all just 15 minutes to the monuments and museums via the Columbia Heights or Georgia Ave metro stops, both just a few blocks away.
Accommodations include one bedroom, one bath, and a large combined kitchenette/living room. Bedroom has queen-sized bed, desk, dresser and large closet. Living area is furnished with a futon and a couch, one of which can accommodate a third person. The en suite bathroom features a classic clawfoot bathtub with a shower.
Simple, self-serve breakfast items are stocked in your minifridge and additional basic grocery items can be purchased at the corner store that is literally across the street. A kitchen table and appliances make for convenient en suite dining: microwave, mini-fridge, toaster, and coffee maker.
Green Features: our B & B is almost carbon-neutral! The house is solar-powered, and it is heated by a corn-burning pellet stove. Our two rain barrels and lots of trees help to reduce stormwater runoff from polluting the Chesapeake Bay. Our beehive and fig tree make for delicious home-made fig jam perfect for spreading on your morning toast (available seasonally). Solar-powered LED motion-lights make house entrances safe and well-lit. And best of all ... our organic cotton towels and sheets make your sleep blissful.
Check in time is 6pm, but earlier arrival is sometimes possible upon request. Leaving luggage early is always welcome.
Guests enter through the main door of our home, enter a large enclosed foyer, and head up the stairs to the third floor. The first and second floors are a private residence.
Quiet after 11pm. No visitors after 11pm.
The third floor is the BnB. The rest of the house is a private residence. We are happy to meet you and we look forward to chatting and helping you any way we can. If you need anything, please call, text, or knock on our door before entering our private space on the first and second floors. Thanks!
When we are home, we are always happy to chat and offer local tips, if desired, but the private part of the house is behind enough doors that guests can easily come and go in privacy.
