History of the Guest House: Kirk Beatley is a fourth 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, purchased this1890 Victorian home to entice her newly married daughter, Nell, to raise her own family in the neighborhood. Nell and her husband, John Luskey, raised their 12 children in this home.

In 2008 Kirk purchased the house from relatives who had owned or lived in the house since 1905, and then Kirk and his family spent over two years meticulously restoring and renovating the home, blending old-world Victorian charm and grace with new world appliances and technology.

Today, Kirk's family, a fifth 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!

Second Stay

  • 5 of 5

We chose this apartment because we'd had such a good experience with Kirk's first floor let in the same house. We weren't disappointed......the second floor gives a bit more space and provides all the facilities and ambience of the lower one.

We are really pleased to have found Kirk's suites and will reserve it for our daughter and for ourselves, whenever we are in DC.

An excellent apartment in an excellent location

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying in the Eastern Markets area, and at this characterful apartment, which would be hard to beat anywhere. All of the rooms and facilities were spotlessly clean, with all that you could need to enjoy a great vacation. Being on the top floor was ideal for us.

We did not have a car during our stay. If you are not going outside of the city/suburbs, a car is not really necessary as public transport is very good. You are only a minute's walk from the Metro, which gets you down town in no time at all. Local buses are also very good.

I would recommend this apartment unreservedly. Our enquiries prior to our stay were answered quickly and professionally by Kirk, who did a great job as our host. If we ever return to DC, this would be our base once more.

PS. One tip that we would suggest; as visitors from the UK and big tea drinkers, we would recommend an electric kettle!!

Complete. Clean. Comfortable. Convenient.

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this welcoming location. I had no hesitation to rebook and will do so again when we travel to DC.

Kirk takes pride in this property and it shows through how well it is maintained, and also through his proactive communication and responsiveness to questions.

We spent seven nights this time and were able to enjoy the neighborhood as well as have great access to the rest of the District.

Great job.

Amazing location and all the comforts of home

  • 5 of 5

This is a great spot and a really nice apartment. I was visiting my adult nieces and reconnecting with some high school friends. Everyone thought it was a brilliant combination of place to stay and great location. And it's true, you are steps from the Metro station. Yet on a super quiet block.

Kitchen made it easy to make some meals there, pick up takeout for lunch or dinner, but there are so many great restaurants a block or two away that you are torn with all the options.

The upstairs porch was a great spot for a morning cup if coffee, afternoon snacks or late night beverage.

If it's available, this is where I'll stay for all future visits.

Excellent apartment in greatv location.

  • 5 of 5

We can't speak highly enough of this great apartment and its location. Close to fabulous restaurants and a subway station fairly central to access all of Washington's great attractions. Roomy, modern, quiet. A joy to go back to after a busy day of sightseeing. Difficult to fault.
