You'll experience our Capitol Hill village as the locals do, from your perch in the beautifully renovated carriage house of this historic home. Leave your car in our off-street parking and get to know the heart of Washington, DC.

The space

Renovated in 2015 and beautifully decorated, this separate entrance carriage house has hardwood floors, high ceilings and everything you’ll need for your stay on the Hill. The bedroom has a four-poster queen-size bed, dresser, marble vanity and a cozy armchair. The French doors open onto a secret garden, the perfect place to enjoy breakfast. The bathroom is done in creamy Travertine with a large tiled shower. The great room has a day bed with a hidden pop-up trundle bed, two arm chairs, a ladder bar, a flat screen TV and a multi-function antique table: Tucked into an alcove it’s the ideal space to eat a sandwich, work on your laptop or charge your electronics. At mealtime pull it away from the wall and pop up the sides for a table that seats six. Let us know how many bistro dining chairs you’ll need. Along the back wall a fully-outfitted kitchen has a full-size 4-burner stove, sink, dishwasher and 5 ft. refrigerator.

Guest access

Multiple convenience stores and restaurants are nearby. Larger grocery stores are a 10-15 minute walk, as are historic Eastern Market and the more hipster Union Market. The carriage house is a 10 minute walk to the start of the National Mall where are located many, many museums and monuments.

Interaction with guests

Guests are accorded utmost privacy with easy access to the property manager and owner as needed.

A wonderful location for exploring central DC. Lovely apartment and the children loved the comfortable sofabed in the front room. The main bedroom was beautifully furnished, like going back in time! Couldn't have asked for a better holiday base and would definitely recommend Jimmy's for breakfast!

Location is excellent, easy access to metro rail stations at Eastern Market, Capitol South or Union Station. The dedicated parking space was the selling point for us. After driving to DC we never used our car while there, having it off the street was a huge plus. Apartment is clean, it was a little smaller than we hoped for the four of us but we made it work for the limited time we spent there. If we return to DC we would request another stay if available.

Excellent location for a DC trip. Good Neighborhood and only a short walk to either Union Station, or Eastern Market. If you visit I recommend you check out Eastern Market on the weekend (The Blue-bucks are excellent for breakfast if you are willing to try out the unique venue). Also if you like the variety offered by a fleet of food trucks (also on the weekend only), get down to the area just east of the Washington Monument.

Ou stay was great! Checkin was super easy, and instructions provided were very thorough. My wife, our two kids and I enjoyed exploring the Capitol Hill neighborhood on foot – visiting the nearby restaurants, shopping, monuments and museums. For the further away monuments/locations, we easily used cabs or drove. It was great to have breakfast fixings waiting for us in the refrigerator when we arrived as well as everything we needed in the kitchen to cook on our own. The space was perfect for the 4 of us. We also appreciated the easy parking, as finding parking elsewhere in the city was nearly impossible.

We loved our stay at Marguerite's carriage house! The location was perfect, we basically walked everywhere for the few days we were there. The off street parking was extremely convenient. Since we have a young child, having the separated sleeping space from the living space was a major plus. I would recommend this to anyone I know heading to the DC area!

Elizabeth and I loved the neighbourhood and found it convenient to The Mall and Union Station. The Carriage house is charming and contained everything we needed. Thank you Marguerite for the thoughtful breakfast ingredients. Kind regards Joan and Elizabeth.

Marguerite User Profile

Marguerite is from New Orleans where she met and married an Irishman from Washington. They moved to DC, into the Capitol Hill house where Tom grew up, and in 1971 they moved to the house on the corner where he had helped in the garden as a child. Tom and Marguerite have been lifelong journalists and raised a family of writers, artists and teachers here. Marguerite just retired (at 80+) from her family advice column of 35 years. She is enjoying her freedom and sharing the apartment in this wonderful house with visitors to Washington.
