Came from Calif with family to see our daughter grad from GW Med School. Old School Charm with upscale flavor/location. Thanks Susan for your flexibility and attention to detail. Mission accomplished.

Perfect for a family visit to DC

  • 5 of 5

A short walk to the Mall and all the sights made this the perfect place to call home during our visit to DC. Not only that, the place is just as it appears - neat and clean the way we keep our own home. The beds are comfortable and the kitchen well stocked. Susan was great to work with and her directions clear and thorough. Our only complaint was not having planned on more time. We'll be back to DC and hopefully get to stay here.

The Place to Stay on Capitol Hill

  • 5 of 5

Perfect- whether you are new to DC or a frequent traveler, Susan has the house in tip top shape (with an insanely good kitchen). Plenty of information for those with no knowledge of the area.

Comfortable, clean, everything works.

We will stay here every visit!

Conveniently Located, Charming Row House

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience at the Folger-Garfield house in Capitol Hill, DC. The house is recently updated, clean, comfortable, and stocked with anything you'd need. The owner called prior to our visit to make sure we had all the information we needed, and a thick notebook was provided with additional info. Although we hardly used our rental car, there was a parking permit provided and we were always able to find a vacant spot on the street. We were also able to obtain a second, temporary permit for another vehicle by walking about 5 blocks to the local Police Station. Our deposit was returned the day after we got home. Highly recommend.

Great house, great location

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfect for a family (or anybody else for that matter). It is very clean, very nice, and extremely close to the Capitol and the Capitol South metro station (5 minute walk). (Be sure to get a Smart Card for the metro.) We flew into Reagan, and it's an easy metro ride from the airport to the house; we did not rent a car, and I’m glad we didn’t. The house easily accommodated our family (four kids).

Susan is responsive and very easy to work with. She provided detailed instructions on getting to the house, as well as ideas for things to see and places to eat. There is a small neighborhood market and a few restaurants within a couple of blocks; Bullfeathers was a good place to grab lunch, as well as a dessert or beverage in the afternoon. A pleasant eight-block walk to Barrack’s Row expands your dining choices considerably.

In short, it’s a great place and we recommend this property without hesitation.
