The highly rated vacation rental is conveniently situated in DC's prized Northwest neighborhood. Here you will find a true urban oasis, marrying the tranquility of a peaceful retreat with proximity to the city. Relax on our front porch as you wait for the “every seven minutes” bus to come directly across the street. In 25 minutes or less, it’ll take you directly to the middle of the city or in 10 minutes you’ll be at the Metro station. But if you and any of your guests are driving, we have free, unlimited, on-street parking.
Some of our other features include wireless Internet, flat screen TVs in all bedrooms, Jacuzzi tubs. Our gourmet kitchen allows you all of the space you need to make that special meal or we can also take care of your breakfast, lunch or dinner requests with our fabulous caterer. We have break-out areas for your corporate retreat, including several rooms that close off for privacy and two ipe architectural decks to spread out in.
For even more space, you can elect to add the Enchanted Cottage -- located 20 yards behind the Inn -- in your stay (additional fee). With a living space and small kitchen upstairs, there is a spiral staircase that connects to a lovely bedroom with a wonderful garden view. The Enchanted Cottage has a Romeo-Juliet balcony and a bathroom with a claw foot tub and a bidet. Oh, so romantic!
We offer enough versatility where you can relax and read a good book in the downstairs living areas near one of our two first floor fireplaces, or close off one of our three chestnut pocket doors for meetings.
We have ample, free, safe parking and are located on a major thoroughfare two miles from downtown.

Perfect House For Family Reunion in DC
The Uptown House was absolutely perfect for our family reunion in May. We had 20 people of various ages ranging from 1 to 70 and everyone was happy & comfortable the entire week. There was plenty of room to gather or to have quiet space, though we mostly gathered. All of the bedrooms were roomy, comfortable and well furnished. The only issue anybody had was that the two bedrooms in the basement were noisier in the morning due to the adjacent kitchen being heavily used, so those bedrooms might be best for heavy sleepers or early risers Also, the ceiling in the kitchen is low, so tall people need to be careful (we had two people around 6'3" and they needed to stoop under the beams). The kitchen itself was extremely well equipped; there was nothing we needed to bring except food. We did a lot of cooking at home including grilling, and all went without any trouble. When we didn't want to cook, there were several good restaurants within a 10 minute walk. Grocery stores are close by, but not really in walking distance. I was concerned about parking as we had six vehicles, but it was never a problem. We were usually able to use at least three of the spaces in front of the house while there was always ample space across the street for the others. All of these spaces are free. The neighborhood is a nice residential area that is quiet and feels very safe to walk around. The 14th Street bus lines were wonderful. The southbound stop was right across the street and the northbound just a couple of buildings down from the house. We used them every day to get to and from the National Mall. It is about a 40 minute ride on average and no transfers are needed unless somebody wants to take the Metro. The buses come by the house every five minutes or so during the day and cost $2.00 per person. We never got to meet Teddy in person, but I spoke with her on the phone several times. She was always really nice, easy to reach and very helpful with any questions we had. The caretaker, Mario, was absolutely fantastic. Besides taking care of everything around the house, he was patient with our endless questions about the buses and Metro lines, local stores and restaurants, and the DC area in general. He was as much concierge as caretaker, and though he probably answered the same questions every time new people came to the house he was always very happy to help us. All of my family loved our stay and highly recommend the Uptown House.
One in a Million
9 of us came DC for a college reunion, and the house surprised us in many ways. It was just gorgeous! and provided a welcoming, warm sophisticated home for renewing friendships. The kitchen was huge, with up to date appliance; bedrooms and baths simply perfect; long beautiful dining table; and Teddy, could not have been more accommodating.
All of us highly recommend this lovely home. It is a rare gem.
Great "Friendsgiving" get together!
My group of 14 adults and 5 kids had a great weekend in the Uptown house. Large bedrooms most with attached bathrooms, great kitchen with most everything we needed to cook a Thanksgiving meal, and a nice little backyard for the little ones to run around in. Beautiful dining area. We were a little off-put by the $100 charge for any light left on and $25 charges for blinds or items left on the wrong floor, but luckily we incurred none of these charges in the end. Teddy was very nice to work with. I would definitely recommend this house for reunions and get-togethers. Adults and kids all had a wonderful time.
Perfect for our group!
The Uptown House was a perfect destination for our work group of 9. We had plenty of space in a beautifully appointed historic DC house on upper 14th Street NW. Would absolutley stay here again!
Everything was great!
This is a great property, great location, tons of room/space and Teddy was great to work with. Always kept me informed, was very quick to get back to me when I had questions and I would certainly use this property again.
It was a 5 star experience all around - the Uptown House was spectacular!
Located on a major thoroughfare of Washington, we are 4 miles from the National Mall. Use public transportation for easy access and enjoy our free parking.
