About this listing

Located next to beautiful Lincoln Park and just a short walk (10 min) from Eastern Market and the H street corrider, you'll have easy access to the metro, Union Station, the Capitol, tons of museums, and a huge selection of great cafes/restaurants/bars. Or cozy up in front of the fireplace or in the secluded backyard patio for a quiet night in. Perfect for business or pleasure.

The space

This spacious, two-story (plus basement), nearly 100-year old row home is perfectly situated in the charming Eastern Market/Capitol Hill neighborhood, right next to Lincoln Park. Its prime location will give you easy access to great cafes/restaurants, bustling nightlife, tons of museums, the US Capitol/Library of Congress/Supreme Court, the National Mall, and other historical sights, all while allowing you to remain secluded in a quiet residential pocket on Capitol Hill. You'll also be walking distance to Eastern Market Metro (orange/blue/silver lines) and Union Station (red line/train station), while both give you access to all that DC has to offer.

The row house has hardwood floors downstairs and carpet upstairs, a gas fireplace, an open and spacious updated layout, a spiral staircase, two bedrooms upstairs, and 1.5 baths. You'll also have access to a beautiful, large patio space where you can relax and enjoy a meal at the end of a long day touring the nation's capitol. In the basement is a washer/dryer if needed. One length of the house is detached and edges an alley, so you get a little extra light and privacy than you would in a fully attached row house.

Sleeping arrangements: This room is ideal for 2 people. There is a full/queen sofa with a plush mattress pad for added comfort, as well as a large couch and small loveseat downstairs.

Alexandra was a perfect host and her place was awesome! Alexandra was very quick when responding and was a very flexible host. I originally thought I would check in around 6pm, but due to work, it ended up being closer to 11pm. Alexandra, was very flexible and accommodating with the check in and everything went smoothly. Her place is also an absolute gem. It is not only very clean, but also beautifully decorated and a relaxing environment. The surrounding neighborhood is quiet, safe, and a short walk to the metro or the Capitol. I would stay again and definitely recommend it to any friends coming through DC

Beautifully designed House in a terrific location in Capitol Hill. Alexandra is a great host and went out of her way to accommodate my shifting schedule. Her personal restaurant reviews will make you wish you could stay longer to eat at all of them! The bed was very comfortable and the house is lovely.

Loved my stay at Alexandra's, the home is incredibly welcoming and sweet! Her sense of style is so fun and makes the space very calming, great kitchen and considerate things for guests like an amazing guide to the area and disposable razors. The area is super lovely and residential, friendly neighbors and great restaurants all around. The metro is about a fifteen minute walk if you go quickly and it's really easy to get around DC from there, though I had to force myself to leave the neighborhood, Capitol Hill is so charming!

Alex was an amazing host and never shied away from providing advice about the D.C. area! She recommended amazing places to eat and provided awesome tips about sites to visit in the D.C. district. I commend Alex for her amazing hospitality and genuine personality!

Alexandria's place was so much better than I expected. The location was so convenient to the eastern market, several coffee/brunch places and the metro station. Once you arrive at her place, you don't even want to leave though. Her kitten is so precious and the home is very inviting. Alexandria was out of town for the weekend but was never more than a message away if we needed anything. If you are planning a trip to DC, I highly recommend staying here.

Alexandra is the most accommodating host. She truly opens up her home to her guests. Great conversation or complete privacy if you want. She really loves DC and can guide you in the direction of whatever you are looking for. Her home is close to everything including mass transit and is located in one of the most charming and friendly neighborhoods in DC. If you prefer Uber, you'll love the location. I don't think I waited more than 4 minutes for a ride and you can get pretty much everywhere in DC for less than 10 dollars. Alexandra had everything set up to accommodate my less than normal check-in and out times. She is truly a sweet person and an amazing host. P.S. Alexandra, thank you so much for the gift. What a great book!
