Restaurant row with it's delightful neighborhood restaurants all offering outdoor seating in season, is one block away on Massachusetts Avenue between 3rd and 4th Streets NE.

Capitol Hill is one of Washington DC's most historic districts. Pierre L'Enfant described the crest of the hill as 'a pedestal waiting for a monument' and shortly afterward, in 1793, George Washington laid the first cornerstone of the United States Capitol building, which now stands facing the city and the National Mall. Behind the Capitol building is the Supreme Court and the Library of Congress. Union Station, at the northern end of Capitol Hill, is not only Washington DC's main rail terminal, but also one of the most popular tourist attractions due to its recent renovation.

Union Station, Washington's main rail terminal, was designed to act as a monumental gateway to the nation's capital city and is located conveniently close to the U.S. Capitol Building, the National Mall and other attractions such as the National Gallery of Art. Since extensive renovation in the 1980s, the Union Station building now houses cafes, restaurants, and stores. Points of interest within Union Station include the carefully restored main waiting room, a 96 foot chamber with gold-leaf ceiling, that is now used for Balls and other festive events and the Presidential waiting room in the East hall. Just outside Union Station are the Thurgood Marshall Federal Judiciary Building and National Postal Museum.

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.

  • 4 of 5
Wonderful location. Comfortable beds. The interior a bit worn but we would stay here again. The location, for the money is the best hand down. Thank you for sharing your home with us.

GREAT FOR FAMILY REUNIONS!

  • 5 of 5
We had a full house of 10 people staying here and the house and location were more than perfect! The house was well-maintained, and our needs for a fragrance-free environment were accommodated! Thank you so much! As all the other reviews state, the location is excellent to many food options, the metro, and the National Mall.

EXCELLENT HOST, EXCELLENT STAY!

  • 5 of 5
If you're looking for an affordable spot for a crowd, look no further. My group was interested in a well-located hub for a girls getaway, and this Capitol Hill location was fabulous. Steps away from Union Station is exactly correct; I couldn't believe it! The gathering space in the house made it ideal for large dinners, too; we fit everyone around the table. All of the guests were impressed and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Our host made sure we were comfortable, even after a small hiccup disrupted our check-in. I was very impressed with her flexibility and honesty. Trust me: not everyone would be so kind!

WONDERFUL PLACE WITH LOADS OF CHARACTER

  • 4 of 5
2 families of four for spring break.
This place had loads of room and allowed for two families to share without feeling like we were right on top of each other. There are essentially two living quarters. The top floor has 3 bedrooms. the middle (ground) floor has living area, kitchen, dining area that seated all 8 of us together and a half bath. the lower floor is its own separate apartment that also has kitchen bathroom bedroom and living area. The lower area also has a washer and drier.

There are a handful of good restaurants in the area and Union Station is literally a stones throw from the front door. It's close enough to everything to be accessible but far enough that you're not in the tourist center. You are in a small neighborhood and because of that it is quiet.

Good dining choices close, but again, local faire, so don't expect tons of fast food or large dining establishments. These are small neighborhood places, but but quite good. Grocery store is walkable (we did it several times). Fully stocked kitchen. and 2 coffee makers in the house.

For a family that likes to relax and not be right in the middle of things this is the place. The only downside, is you are not right in the middle of things, so if you want to spend the day in the mall, it's a short train ride there. For us, it was no big deal because we would leave in the AM and return that night, so 2 short train rides were never an issue, but it is something to consider if you feel like you need to be right on top of the sights and sounds. The capital is a 8-9 minute walk (for a reference). Add 2 miles to that for the Lincoln memorial. This is not a negative, simply an FYI. We really like the placed a lot.
