The Bird’s Nest is a delightful top floor studio apartment in the heart of The Palisades Village neighborhood of Washington, DC. A private entrance leads to a beautifully crafted wood spiral staircase to your Washington hideaway. This tastefully decorated studio features a queen bed, its own private deck where you can sit and enjoy your morning coffee or an evening glass of wine after a day exploring the cultural riches of the city.

Felecia – “The Bird's Nest was exactly as represented in the photos: very clean, comfortable and centrally located. It was a welcome place to call home for our family of four for the week. Also, having our very own private parking spot is a big plus, and probably worth more than gold in DC! Charlotte and Matthias were wonderful, gracious and accommodating hosts. Matthias was readily available by email or phone once we were on site, and any issues or requests were quickly taken care of. Thanks, we had a great experience!”

Take a few days away from the bustle of the city to explore our bucolic countryside little changed over the past 2 to 3 centuries. Visit wineries and orchards, significant Civil War battlefields and historic towns, hike the Apalachian Trail or follow in the footsteps of our founding fathers by visiting their homes. There is plenty to do that beckons you to leave the city for a weekend or a week.
A bit about me...I am a former Californian who, after 12 years in DC, is now an honorary Washington native. Being well traveled both domestically and internationally has given me a great appreciation for the enrichment contact with others brings to our experience. I am well-versed on the 'must-see' sights, monuments and museums of our culturally rich city, along with the unique experiences your find only in Washington. We share that insight with our guests in our property Welcome Guides which we send upon confirmation.
We very much enjoy hosting visitors to our Nation's Capital and ensuring that they are able to make the most of their visit.
