About this listing
Comfy bedroom & private lux bath in classic Bloomingdale rowhouse that backs to lovely park. Trendy neighborhood restaurants, hip bars, coffee shop, corner grocery, yoga -- yet still a residential neighborhood. 1 block to city bus. 6 blocks to subway. 30 min walk to US Capitol.
Room on 2nd floor has double bed for 1 or 2 guests (only 1 guest if staying longer than 10 days) and a renovated bath. The room has a small desk for writing or laptop. Enjoy fresh morning air in the front garden or rear deck overlooking the park or go stroll through it. Squeeze a quick workout in downstairs before you explore what DC has to offer. We are repeatedly told the pictures don't do the house justice.
Full use of your room and bath at all times. Use of living room, dining room, front garden, rear deck, the park and basement "gym" -- and kitchen basic use allowed from 6:00 am to 10:00 pm. More extensive kitchen use for guests staying 5 days or more.
Interaction with guests
After initial greeting, feel free to ask questions. We respect guests who want privacy, but interaction level can vary with schedules and other commitments. Patrick can speak a little bit of French.
Bloomingdale has several coffee shops, restaurants, bars, bakery, yoga studio, lovely architecture, and friendly people. The convention center, downtown business district, US Capitol, and much more are a quick bus ride away. You can also walk to those areas in 30 min or less. The architecture in the neighborhood and throughout the city is very interesting and beautiful.
The bus is 1 block away (G2, G8, 80) and the metro subway stop (Shaw) is 6 blocks. Its an easy walk. Capital Bikeshare is around the corner. The neighborhood is walkable. The US Capitol is a 30 min walk. Let us know if you need to park a car. A taxi from National Airport is $30. A taxi from the train at Union Station is probably about $15.
Other things to note
Well behaved dogs allowed with prior notice. Parking pass for street parking if needed. Holding your luggage before check-in or after check-out can usually be arranged. Please let me know what time you expect to arrive. If you have a special request or need, just let Patrick know. Warren works long hours, so Patrick is your generally your primary host. We -- and therefore the house -- is easy and quiet.
Common courtesy is our general rule. No smoking or drugs in the house or on the deck. No additional guests inside the house. Ensure the all doors and windows in your room are locked when you leave (or enter). $50 fee for lost key. $100 fee for lost parking pass. Approval required for early check-in or late check-out, but we are pretty flexible. Early/late access to the room depends on calendar bookings. Please be as quiet as possible before 6:00 a.m. and after 10:00 p.m. During the week, we generally are up at 6:00 and go to bed anytime between 9:00 and 11:00.
