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.
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.
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.
Only rule we have is keep your door closed when you are not home so that our dog cannot come inside. Our dog is extremely curious and loves human food and toothpaste. If your door is closed, he will leave you and your belongings alone.
We (Michelle and Steve) love living in our Nation's Capital and welcoming our home up to guests. When you stay with us, it's like staying with friends and family. Our house, is your house. :)
