History of Eastern Market Suites:: Kirk Beatley is a fifth generation Washingtonian whose family has lived on Capitol Hill since the late 1800s, and where he continues to live today with his wife and two children. In 1905, Kirk's Great-Grandmother, Margaret, became only the second owner of this 1890 Victorian home, purchasing it so as to entice her newly married daughter, Nell, to raise her own family in the neighborhood. Nell, a typical 'stay at home' mother of the ages, and her husband, John, a fireman with the Washington, D.C. Fire Department, raised their 12 children in this home, witnessing the strife of World War I, the excitment of the Roaring 1920s, the depression of the 1930s, the heartbreak of WW II and the unrest of the rebellous 1960s.

In 2008 Kirk and his wife purchased the home from elderly relatives who had owned or lived in the house since 1905, and then spent more than two years meticulously restoring and renovating the home, blending all that could be salvaged of the original 'Old-world - Victorian' charm, grace and architecture with 'New world' appliances and technology.

Today, Kirk's family, a sixth generation of Washingtonians, are honored to offer you the opportunity of experiencing residential living in their newly updated family's house, in the heart of our Nation's Capitol, at the Historic Eastern Market on Capitol Hill!

Great location, really nice place!

We couldn't have found a nicer or more convenient place for our brief (4 night) stay; loved the fact that the Metro is only 100 steps away, and that there are so many excellent places to eat with 2 or 3 blocks! We especially enjoyed Le Pain Quotidien, great pastries and quiches, very friendly staff. We had the 1st (Main) Floor flat, and it was very nice... lovely furnishings, very comfortable bed, everything needed in the nice kitchen (I want that Viking stove!!!). We're looking forward to a return visit soon!

Kirk, we cannot begin to tell you how lovely your family home is! It is clear that all of the work done to your 1890 family home was lovingly restored with top of the line appliances, bedding and all of the comforts to ensure a comfortable stay. My Mom and I were on a vacation to see the DC sights and the location could not have been more perfect to the Metro (really only 100 steps!), fantastic dining and the Eastern Market. We stayed in the top flat and had a lovely lanai to wind down and have a glass of wine after sight-seeing the Memorials, the National Gallery of Art, Arlington and the Eastern Market. It is all right there and within walking distance. I even went to the library which is just across the street!
I so appreciated meeting you and learning about your family history of this property and the challenges you have had to keep it in the family and restore it. I also appreciate the personal service you gave us to arrange pick up of the night-time oxygen that my Mom needed.
Talked to my Mom tonight, a week after our visit, and we were waxing poetic about our wonderful time and your lovely home. Thank you for sharing with us!

My friends and I very much enjoyed our recent stay here. The location is very convenient to the Metro as well as a multitude of dining options. One could even walk to the Capitol area without much ambition. The apartment was in very nice condition, and we especially liked the back porch. Kirk was extremely kind and accommodating throughout our stay. Should I return to D.C. someday, I will definitely seek to stay here again.

GOOD TIME
The apartment is nice and well equipped, well located near the subway and downtown and we had a pleasant stay with terrace and garden to relax between the visits to museums and monuments
Only small flaw: the noise of the tenants's footsteps of the apartment above
The owner came to see us the first evening to welcome us and see if everything go well!

could not have been better

My children (10 and 4) and I stayed here for 2 nights on our way to Baltimore and then New York City. I (mom) was travelling alone with the two little ones, so safety and convenience were very important factors. We experienced both (and more). We stayed on the main level. The owner, Kirk, was an excellent host and was a joy to meet in person. He went above and beyond to make us feel welcome, safe, and comfortable. He offered a very fair price for what we got, and he made it clear that he was available to take care of any concerns that we may have (none!). The apartment was clean and very well appointed. We had everything we needed. We were able to park right in front of the home. Within a short walk from the apartment, we found the metro (so easy to get around DC), a row of restaurants/shops, and a park with a great playground for the kids. We especially enjoyed having a small back yard with a patio set for eating. I like to cook my own meals, so a hotel would not have been nearly as convenient or comfortable. I would not hesitate to recommend this property to anyone who wants a clean and fabulous place to stay while visiting DC, and I hope to be able to return soon myself. It just doesn't get any better than this. Thanks Kirk for sharing your property.
