The Apple Tree Inn offers visitors an exceptional location to explore all Washington has to offer; including the National Mall, Smithsonian Museums and more! Guests adore the 2 story atrium with a curved stairway to the rear courtyard and garden.

The space

The Apple Tree Inn offers visitors an exceptional location to explore all Washington has to offer.

The 1881 Victorian townhouse was completely renovated and updated in the 1990's. The remodeling kept many of the best features of the 19th century, including pocket doors, 12' ceilings, carved woodwork, crown moldings and 3 working fireplaces. One particularly dramatic feature added with the renovations is a 2 story atrium with a curved stairway to the rear courtyard and garden.

Guest access

The Apple Tree Inn offers a traditional private home Bed and Breakfast experience. You are the personal guests to the owners of the home. The home offers accommodations in just one guest room, located on the second floor of the home and furnished with a Queen size bed. There is a full, private hall bath exclusive for guest use, just across the hall from the bedroom. The guest suite includes a 35" HD LCD TV with cable and complimentary wireless Internet, which carries throughout the home and courtyard. Visitors are also encouraged to enjoy the first floor living room and den, as well as the private courtyard in the backyard of the property. Mornings, your hosts treat you to a hot cooked breakfast served in the Garden level dining room or alfresco on the patio; of course, when weather permits. Guests are also welcome to the backyard garden area, which is especially relaxing after a long day of sightseeing! The Inn is centrally air-conditioned and heated for year round comfort.

Interaction with guests

Your hosts first moved to Washington in 1984 but have spent the better part of 17 years working in the Foreign Service. Simon was a certified public accountant with KPMG in Zambia, South Africa, Belgium and Nigeria. He has recently transitioned to his second career, graduating from the Corcoran College of Art and Design in May of 2008. He paints oil on canvas from his studio located in the Carriage House behind the home. Guests will see some of his work displayed throughout the Inn. Robyn retired after 30 years as a career diplomat enjoying assignments at the American Embassies in Europe, the Caribbean, Africa and was the Consul General in Lagos, Nigeria. Both of your hosts are fluent in French.

I had a wonderful stay at the Apple Tree Bed and Breakfast. Beautiful home near Capitol Hill. Welcoming hosts--very kind and extraordinarily helpful. My room was comfortable and provided helpful extras for travelers. I could not have had a better experience and hope I get a chance to stay there again.
