Overview

Washington DC House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom with bath for each bedroom.

If you want to tour DC by bicycle there is a rental station 1/2 block from this vacation rental, which is only 3 blocks from the US Capitol and the beginning of the National Mall.

The Flat at Library Court is a rowhouse in the historic district with a completely renovated interior and all new furnishings decorated with Washington D.C. flair. You’ll enjoy expansive views of the stately Library of Congress,.. which is directly across the street. The house backs to Library Court, a 300 year old historic cobblestone street built in the days of horse-drawn buggies.

Why you can’t beat our location: Capitol Hill is a historic residential neighborhood that stretches from the U.S. Capitol, and Pennsylvania Ave, the main corridor, emanates from the Capitol beginning at 2nd Street. We are one block away on 3rd St – the first residential block from the Capitol. The further you get (4th Street, 5th, 6th and so on), the less desirable and less safe the areas become, and the longer your walk to the sites. This is truly as good and as close as it gets! Don’t talk yourself into staying blocks away…

• 1 Block or Less: U.S. Supreme Court, Library of Congress (across the street), Folger (Shakespeare) Theatre

• Within 2 to 3 blocks: U.S. Capitol, U.S. Capitol Visitor Center, Cannon House Office Building, Capitol Mall, U.S. Botanical Garden, South Capital Metro station.

• Tour Bus: The Circulator Tour Bus picks up one block away but most of what you’ll want to see is within a short walk.

• Dining 1 Block or Less: We the Pizza; Good Stuff Eatery (President Obama’s favorite hamburger), Cosi (sandwiches, soups and salads), Starbucks, Sonoma Restaurant and Wine Bar, Hunan Dynasty, Hawk N Dove; Capitol Hill Liquor and Deli

• Stores 1-2 Blocks: Corner Market Grocery Store, Grubb’s Care Pharmacy, Gandel’s Liquor, Riverby Books.

The Courtyard Apartment

The Courtyard Apartment of the Flat at Library Court is a two story unit with 3 bedrooms and 3 ½ bathrooms, a private courtyard and expansive views of the stately Library of Congress. The kitchen is fully stocked and the unit has wi-fi, cable TV and central air conditioning/heat.

• Main Level: On the main level, you’ll find an expansive kitchen/great room with views of the Library of Congress. The kitchen is fully equipped and has a breakfast bar and large dining table and it opens to the living room with a sleeper sofa and flat screen TV. Behind the great room is a half bathroom, washer and drier, and a master suite with a king size bed and full bathroom, including a tub. The hallway provides access to the private courtyard for relaxation after a busy day of touring the Capitol and quiet al fresco dining; it backs to the historic cobblestone court.

• Lower Level: On the lower level, there are two bedrooms and two full bathrooms: one bedroom has a queen size bed and its own bathroom and the third bedroom has bunk beds single/over double.

DESCRIPTION OF NEIGHBORHOOD:

Capitol Hill is the largest historic residential neighborhood in Washington D.C., stretching easterly in front of the United States Capitol along wide avenues. It is one of the oldest residential communities in Washington D.C.

As a geographic feature, Capitol Hill rises near the center of the District of Columbia and extends eastward. The Capitol Hill neighborhood today straddles two quadrants of the city, Southeast and Northeast, and a large portion is now designated as the Capitol Hill historic district. The name Capitol Hill is often used to refer to both the historic district and to the larger neighborhood around it.

Capitol Hill's landmarks include not only the United States Capitol, but also the Senate and House office buildings, the Supreme Court building, the Library of Congress, the Marine Barracks, the Washington Navy Yard, and Congressional Cemetery.

The main non-residential corridor of Capitol Hill is Pennsylvania Avenue, a lively commercial street with shops, restaurants and bars. Eastern Market is an 1873 public market on 7th Street SE, where vendors sell fresh meat and produce in indoor stalls and at outdoor farmers' stands. It is also the site of an outdoor flea market every weekend. Please look at our other properties 3550803, 913567 & 4015008 with homeaway.com in Capitol Hill area.

If available, we can provide parking for 1 vehicle at Union Station which is 5 blocks from this rental.

Wonderful location and Remodeled Property

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the Capitol Hill rowhome; the location is perfect for accessing Library of Congress, Capitol and the National Mall, to name just a few. As some have noted the Capitol South metro is also not far away. The home has been beautifully remodeled and, in our opinion, is larger than it appears in photos. 3 1/2 baths is a very nice feature of the home; kitchen is well appointed with other thoughtful touches. Very clean as well. We found parking right in front of the home, mid-August, on a weekend night, but did not have the car during weekdays. There is a small patio off the back of the unit and a grill (did not use) which would be very nice on cooler evenings. There are shops and a few restaurants within one block of the home; Starbucks, Pret a Manger, Good Stuff Eatery, pizza, etc. We had three generations staying in the home and all thoroughly enjoyed it. Was nice that master suite was on the first floor. There are some steps into the home and then full staircase to the basement bedrooms, noting for accessibility. Highly recommend for location and amenities. Bob also provides much helpful information in advance; excellent to work with.

Great location !! Really nice apartment.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was great. Location in the capital hill neighborhood directly behind the library of congress was awesome! I really appreciated Mr Finn letting us use the garage for our Uhaul trailer. It worked out great as we moved our son out of his dorm room.

Thanks again for a wonderful weekend in DC!!

Nice & clean place, easy walk to Metro station

  • 5 of 5

This property was well maintained and a very nice location for our stay in DC. The three bedrooms and three baths provided ample space for our entire family of 7. We also had groceries delivered, which was an easy process and great for us to be able to cook some meals at the house. We really enjoyed our visit and had no problems during the stay. Thanks for helping us have a great family vacation to DC.

A great place to stay that is very close to what you want to see in Washington. It had plenty of room and cool AC(which we really needed because it was almost 99 degrees out each day we were there)

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The row home offered every comfort of home and then some. We found the kitchen was updated and the owners even left bottled water for our long walks in DC. The cleanliness was outstanding! Everything was within walking distance so no car rental was required. Groceries were 3 blocks, coffee shop two blocks, union station within walking distance to catch any other transportation needed. My husband and 4 adult children were very happy and would definitely rent this property again. The owners of the property are in touch with you and really seem to care that your stay is the best! It was too! Thank you!

Family East Coast Trip

  • 5 of 5

Great location! Clean home. We walked all over D.C. from this great row house. Bob was wonderful! He responded quickly to all questions and provided us with a lot of helpful information about the area. We truly appreciated the chilled bottled water waiting for us in the refrigerator. We are hoping to stay again when we visit D.C. in the future. We loved Petango Gelato on 7th and Pennsylvania.
