Welcome to our Washington DC Bed and Breakfast

This holiday season, don’t worry about making the perfect Christmas or New Year’s Eve. Instead, let us do the heavy lifting for you. That’s right! Come stay in one of our 12 bedroom en-suite rooms and experience a bit of cozy luxury. Though we aren’t the Ritz, we are a historic well appointed Washington DC Bed and Breakfast. So when you feel yourself get stressed from family cards, creative cookies not turning out right, present being discovered in a game of hide-and-seek, or just needing a break from Great Uncle someone, come to us and get ready to relax.

Why Stay at this Bed and Breakfast in DC?

Our guests remember us for three reasons: 1) hospitality, 2) breakfast, 3) lodging characteristic. Because of this, we are on the prowl for new faces who haven’t experienced our “wow” factor. And really, when was the last time you spent the night at a hotel that knocked your socks off?

On your next travel vacation or getaway, come stay with us. Our very own Chef Kevin is cooking up some holiday favorites in the kitchen: eggnog pancakes; cinnamon bread; deviled-egg frittata; raspberry-jam French toast…need we say more?

Our beautiful innkeepers, Hannah and Meg, know all the great places to go this Christmas in the city. Whether you’re looking for a family outing, a cheery way to spend the day, excellent shopping for gifts, or just a festive show with beautiful Christmas lights, these girls can get the job done.

And if you need an excuse for a staycation: we offer packages to spice up the holiday romance in your significant other’s life, or a way to just say, “This time, it’s all about you.” (Just a side note, we’re great at pulling off surprises, too. Imagine the look on your partner’s face when a night away is greeted with twelve-dozen roses!)

Location of our DC Bed and Breakfast

We aren’t your average Washington DC hotel location. Though other lodging in Washington DC may require a cab or car, with us all you need is your two front feet. And if you don’t love to walk, well you’re about to start! Just 10 minutes to the Dupont Circle Metro, and Circa Restaurant, it’s an easy hop-skip to the red line. Just a mile to the White House, you can almost see the Obama family decorate their tree. Or how about visiting the National Zoo’s Christmas festivals? Then tie your shoes and walk on up, because we are a healthy stroll away from some pretty cute Santa animal helpers. Washington DC accommodation has never been so convenient.

Restaurants near our Washington DC Inn

There are restaurants near every Washington DC attraction.  Deciding on what to eat may be the hardest decision, but we have compiled a Restaurant List to help you decide.  Bon Appetit!

A slice of American History

Now hold on! Before you press RESERVE NOW on one of our delightful rooms, please take a moment to appreciate the family that’s made all this happen. The Rosans have been in the Washington DC vacation industry since Google became popular. Now they dipped in and out of what worked and didn’t, but it was their dedication that made them form the magic recipe for hospitality success.

While driving near Columbia Rd., Mr. Rosan saw this Victorian house and new it was “the one.” From renovation to opening, they can tell you a story or two. But what will never grow old is their unwavering love for the business. And even as we all busy ourselves with holiday plans, the Rosans are polishing the B&B’s harwood, baking homemade cookies, fluffing red poinsettia petals, and making the house smell of cinnamon and vanilla all for their guests delight.

Washington DC Getaways

Inspire the inner you, visit the myriad of attractions, mostly free of charge Washington DC Sites and Attractions.  


One of the best parts about Washington, D.C., is that the Smithsonian Institution provides free entrance to all of the museums on the Mall.  The Air and Space Museum is often times the top choice.  Stop by and see one of Amelia Earhart’s old planes!


A note from your Innkeepers:

With Thanksgiving and Black Friday behind us, now is the time to concentrate on the next big event.  Year end holidays are fun but it can get a bit stressful with all the gift buying events.  Take a brake from it all and have some fun by getting away from it all this holiday and letting us take care of you at this home-away-from-home DC bed and breakfast.
