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.

Loved this B&B. The room was very comfortable and clean. The common area was nice and plenty of food for everyone. Location is amazing and close to a lot of nice restaurants on U st.

This was a beautiful home and both of our hosts were incredibly gracious and friendly but not overbearing. Super comfortable bed and very cute decor! We also loved their pup Clay.

The Birdhouse AirBnB was a great place to stay. The room is in the basement, but there is some natural light available with the windows. Steve and Michelle were very welcoming. They also included a breakfast if we wanted it, and had snacks available. The bed was large and comfortable. There was a TV in the room, and we were able to use our Netflix login to watch our favorite series. It would be nice to have reading lights available next to the bed, but this was not a big issue. The WiFi was available and worked well. We look forward to our next visit.

My friend and I were in D.C. for a quick trip over my birthday weekend. Michelle (I believe Steven was out of town) was a great host and her dogs were super cute. The house was lovely and very comfortable and while there were other guests, it still felt like we had the whole place to ourselves. The location was also great - not too busy, but still near good places to eat. Overall, I'd definitely recommend staying here if you're ever in D.C.

Great, clean room. Close to all the businesses of U Street, but far enough removed that the room was very quiet (a hard thing to get in this part of D.C.).

Steve and Michelle's home is beautiful. They are wonderful hosts and the room we stayed in was lovely. The bed was very comfortable and the shower was nice. The neighborhood is quiet. It's a little further from the metro station than expected but not far enough to be an issue (about a half mile walk). It is also close to some great restaurants! Overall our stay was excellent. I would definitely recommend staying in Steve and Michelle's home!

Staying at Steven and Michelle's was such a pleasure and it is very evident as to why they are superhosts! The bed was extremely comfortable and the other amenities such as breakfast, chocolates in the room, and coffee made for an even more enjoyable stay before my interview! Their b&b is conveniently located for exploring and eating your way through DC!
