Come stay at the Bird House B&B. We are a licensed B&B located in the historic and nice neighborhood of LeDroit Park. Downtown is two metro stops away and the lively U street district (great bars and restaurants) is walking distance.

The space

We have a four story, seven bedroom historic, row home built in 1880. The room is located in the English basement, with plenty of natural light and windows. The room also has a sitting area, king bed, and a private bathroom.

Guest access

The entire house, including full use of the kitchen, dining room, living room and backyard.

Interaction with guests

Depends on the guests! We are happy to give recommendations for the city and we enjoy having conversations.

Other things to note

We have one visitors parking pass that we let guests use on a first-come, first-serve basis (email us if you are interested in using it). There is also free street parking nearby (about a 10 minute walk away) and we have free parking in front of our house on nights and weekends. Message us if you are interested in the parking pass.

Metro exit: At Shaw metro, take the Howard University exit.

The kitchen, dining room, living room and bathrooms are shared with our guests. Welcome to use fridge, dishes, coffee machine, laundry, etc.We are often booked, which means there will likely be other guests staying in the house. Even though there are other guests, the atmosphere is very quiet.

We have a dog named Clay and he is super friendly - loves all people! We also rescue dogs who are about to be put down, so we will occasionally have a foster dog staying with us. If you stay with us, you will likely be greeted by two very friendly dogs wanting to give kisses.

The house is beautiful and in a really nice area of DC. Everything about the description was very accurate and we were very happy with our stay! The bed is extremely comfortable and everything in the house was very clean and well kept. The dog was very friendly and calm and the breakfast/coffee/snacks/fresh baked scones was much appreciated. Michelle was very helpful and generous with suggestions for things to do and getting around the city. There were quite a few other guests while we were there but didn't affect our stay as the house is big with multiple bathrooms. Would definitely stay there again.

This place was perfect. Steven was quick to respond to my questions- he was kind enough to give us some recommendations for local restaurants in the area. This place was in a great neighbourhood. We were obsessed with his dog (URL HIDDEN) cute and friendly. The room and beds were comfortable and clean. The arrival process was seamless. The parking pass for street parking was an awesome perk. Thanks again Steven! We would definitely stay here again.

My family (husband & 2 year old son) and myself absolutely loved our stay at the Birdhouse B&B!! First of all, it's beautiful and very inviting. The bed was EXTREMELY comfortable, having a tv in our room made it much easier since we have a little one, and we loved having a lock on our door. The breakfast was amazing each day, all of the other guest we came across were very friendly and from all over the world! We just happen to vacation here the same time hurricane Irma was taking over our home town, FL. It was perfect timing for a vacation and we are so grateful we had the opportunity to stay for 4 nights and 5 days. Getting around was easier than we thought, but parking was a little difficult (our only challenge). Our son absolutely adored Clay, their dog! Such a sweet pup! As for getting around, an Uber to National mall is normally 5 dollars, but with a toddler who needs a car seat, it ends up being $20, so we found the Metro to be more affordable, as long as you're OK with doing some extra walking. We would come back again, no doubt! 5 stars all the way!
