I am a contractor who specializes in restoration of historic homes in Washington, D.C. My wife and I have lived since the late 1990s in a 1876 Victorian home in LeDroit Park that I spent almost ten years restoring.

Deborah Knorr purchased this townhome in 1999

This is a unique area of Washington, D.C. with great history and architecture. We have enjoyed meeting vistors from around the world in the year that we have offered the townhome as a vacation rental.

A wonderful place to stay

This is a beautiful property, which I cannot recommend highly enough. We were 7 in our party, so were very comfortable spread over the 4 bedrooms. I think it would be crowded with 14 though. The house was clean and tidy and all the furnishings and equipment are of the highest quality. Patrick, the landlord, was very friendly and helpful. Although on one occassion we were warned at the metro that the area was not safe to walk around at night, we felt perfectly safe walking to and from the metro, though we did not do this late at night. It is a short metro ride to the centre of Washington. Highly recommend hiring bikes from Thomson boat and cycle hire as a way of seeing the main sights. Do not bother with the Double Decker bus tours - they do not run frequently or regularly, nor do they keep to their scheduled route and stops. A complete waste of money and a precious days sight-seeing.

Owner's Response: This is a very safe neighborhood from the Metro stops. The area is established as a historic district. I live in the area and I find it to be as safe as any location in DC. This is the only neighborhood that I would live in DC. I love it, it is quiet and friendly.

Our family stayed in this beautiful home 11-8-13 thru 11-13-13 and were very happy with how large and comfortable the home is, how clean it was, the area and proximity to the metro & great restaurants. We had an absolutely fabulous time. Shaw/Howard University metro station is about 5 minute walk away. Great places to eat are 5 minutes or less (Shaws Tavern and Bistro Bohem were our 2 favorites). We were 6 adults and a 15 year old and had plenty of room for everyone, and a big plus - never ran out of hot water with numerous showers. If we come back to DC and this place is still on VRBO we will definitely stay here again. Loved it!!

Sales meeting and Convention

We recently stayed here while attending a Convention. House is everything the pictures show. Great condition and complete with everything you need to feel like your at home. We grilled our dinner several times and walked to the local bakery in the morning. The downstairs entertainment room was great for watching some T V together at the end of the evening. Owner is very friendly and easy to deal with. Subway is 5 blocks away thru a very nice neighborhood..

Wonderful Space, Beautiful Home w/ Historic Charm

This was the last place we stayed on our East Coast trip of two weeks with our family of seven plus Mother in Law (eight total). It was so nice to be able to just spread out! Neighbors were kind and friendly, the owner, Patrick, was very accommodating and showed us around the area and to buy groceries. We grilled several times and the house was just beautiful.

If you have a large group, this house has the space to meet your needs. There is a park a short walking distance for kids and the subway was a short 10 minute walk with little ones. If you happen to need a break from your little ones, a TV in every room makes it easy to find a temporary babysitter.

This was a great place to enjoy DC from, and we'd certainly stay here again our next time out.

Awesome family retreat!

During the planning of our first ever family trip Patrick and Deborah were very helpful with all my questions about DC. We arrived much later than expected and Patrick still graciously took us to the grocery store and showed around the area. Thank you again Patrick. The house is beautiful and all 7 in our family had their own space which was great. My 8 yr old grandaughter loved the house and having her own room and said it was way better then staying in a hotel. We spent every evening sitting in the parlor discussing the events of the day. Thank goodness we were close to the subway, that was the least of the walking we did in DC. Thank you Patrick for providing such a great place to stay and enjoy spending time together as a family. If we make another trip to DC we will rent this home again.
