Welcome to Our Washington DC Bed and Breakfast

It’s the twilight of summer and American Guest House welcomes you to Washington DC. This July and August, join us and witness the transformation of DC from a scorching summer kiln into the cool fall capital. Fall and spring are arguably the best time to visit the district. The hot day dissipates into the tranquil night; humidity into arid days, and Abe Lincoln’s statue seemingly welcomes you into the cool monument.

While it’s still summer, stay cool in our historic DC Inn just minutes away from Adams Morgan to the north and Dupont Circle to the south. The district’s compact size and wide sidewalks make it among the most walkable cities in the nation. If you would like an itinerary, ask an innkeeper about the trip to Georgetown via the Dumbarton Oaks Trail, or the route to the White House with a stop at Meridian Hill Park for sandwiches from Amsterdam Falafel. DC has plenty of tourist attractions, but we are happy to call the district our home. Join us at your home away from home while you visit!

Our breakfast cooks love to impress guests with their specials. Hannah chooses fresh ingredients and emphasizes healthful meals. Marcos likes the regional cuisine of the south, Mexican, and french. Kevin – our weekday cook – incorporates unexpected ingredients such as ricotta, citrus, and squash in his specials. We can accommodate dietary restrictions with notice.

Washington DC Getaways

Here’s some trivia, residents of D.C.  Did you know that in 1921 a snowstorm brought record snowfalls that resulted on the collapse of the ceiling of the Knickerbocker Theater just up the road from our DC bnb? Did you know that Adams Morgan is named after the first integrated elementary schools in D.C. and boasts of the most ethnically diverse commercial districts in the district? No? Well you should stay with us and learn about this side of town. Keep your eyes open for a Staycation Package, which will include a free bottle of champagne and coupons to local restaurants and retail shops! (If you knew all of that.. free champagne!)

Washington DC getaways are the best, just take a look at some of the Washington DC Tourist Attractions you can enjoy while you visit our great city.
