The Cherry Blossom guest room in our beautiful colonial rowhouse Candlemore, ideal for enjoying DC's iconic cherry blossoms in charming, historic Southwest Waterfront on the banks of the Potomac River in the heart of the District
SWDC has it all: restaurants, history, culture, night life, and a quiet place to sleep. Short walk to three Metro stations, Capitol Hill, Nats Park, Smithsonian & the monuments. Convenient to DCA, downtown, and major DC attractions.
See our pictures!! The Cherry Blossom guest room is quaint and cozy featuring a queen bed with a twin trundle bed underneath. There is also space for an airbed, which we can provide. The shared bath room is newly renovated.
Candlemore is almost 50 years old and most of our furnishings are family antique pieces that do show some wear. The effect is sometimes referred to as "shabby chic"
You will have the full run of the house, sharing the kitchen, living room, sun porch and patio with the other guests.
