Welcome to our Washington DC Bed and Breakfast

Washington DC can have a corporate vibe to it. That working individuals come during the week for conferences and leave shortly after. Everything feels fast-paced, with a touch of anxiety, and concrete buildings seem to be the view from everyone’s apartment. So consider our Washington DC B&B the vitamin E to your travel blues. We set the standard higher. With our warm and friendly atmosphere, amazing breakfast specials, and old-fashioned decor, we are anything but your regular Washington DC hotel.

Why our Bed and Breakfast in DC?

Why not? The B&B life is easy to love. And when you step through our beautiful wooden door, the smell of lemon wakes you up to how travel accommodation should be.

Our innkeepers take the labor of travel off you. We offer a stress-free check-in. There is nothing better than just getting straight to your room instead of sorting out lodging details. We do that for you prior to your trip. If any complication occurs, call us so we can help you. Really anything! seeing guests at our Washington DC inn is one of our highlights. It’s great to get to know your story and watch lodgers mingle with other lodgers. One time during breakfast, two separate couples came down for quiche and left with the information that someone knew someone’s cousin–you know, the small world stuff. These types of engagements are because of our comfy atmosphere.

We offer complimentary features no one can resist. Our guest computer is free for you! Connected to a printer, that also works as a scanner, you can print your boarding pass or maybe concert tickets. Because we recycle our paper, rest assured that mother nature approves. There are cookies in the dining room, coffee tea and hot chocolate station, to-go breakfasts for the early risers, taxi-call service, and seasoned restaurant recommendations, we are quicker than Google to make your stay unforgettable.

Location of our DC Bed and Breakfast

Are you a museum junkie? What about a gelato conoscere? Well, bingo! Our Washington DC accommodation is located in Kalorama/Dupont Circle–one of the top areas of DC. Everything is within walking distance. The White House is just over a mile away. This is a great destination to see the heart of DC. The Smithsonians are a short walk, or quick metro ride, and they are all clustered together making things more efficient for your feet. There are plenty of fine shops next to us. Every cuisine you could be in the mood for is within your access, or take things easy breezy and have a pizza delivered. Either way, it feels great to get up and get moving instead of starting the car.

A slice of American History

Boy if walls could talk in here! Well in a way they can….the rich architecture dates back to 1898 when this grand establishment was built for the Counsellor of the French Embassy. The meticulous details are credited to the original designer, Arthur Cowsill. It’s things like our wooden staircase that wraps around itself, the tiled fireplaces, handcrafted details everywhere, Our Washington DC attraction is an experience beyond hotel lodging.

The current owners purchased this house in 2002. From there they renovated top to bottom–and there certainly was a lot to do to shine the place back to its glory days. Now today many years later, the owners still insert that same love because they know just how special this Washington DC getaway is.

What’s for Breakfast?

Now let’s get to the good stuff. Chef Kevin is the breakfast wizard. Every morning he comes in while it’s still night colored outside. He puts on his Chef coat and warms up the oven. Pastries are baked, bacon is fried, pancake batter is whipped, fresh fruit is sliced, homemade granola is put out and on and on. There always seems to be a limitless effort on what he can do. Because our Washington DC deal caters to food intolerance, be advised that as long as you give us warning prior to your stay, you’ll never leave hungry or unsatisfied.
