Additional Location Information
We are located on 14th Street, NW, which is a major thoroughfare in the Washington, DC, area. We are not located in the middle of the city, but only five miles from the nation's National Mall. You can literally sit on the porch and wait for the bus to come across the street. The bus runs from 5:00 a.m. to 1 a.m. During the morning and evening it runs every seven minutes. You can hop on and in 10 minutes you will be at the Columbia Heights Metro Station or in 25 minutes you will be right at the National Mall, Washington Monument, Holocaust Museum, National Mall. So it's very easy to get around in a city that is only an 18 mile radius. Our neighborhood statistically is one of the top safest neighborhoods in the city, much safer than downtown. It is in a quasi residential/business area. There is a neighborhood favorite restaurant, Highland's, that is walkable in two minutes and serves an awesome breakfast and a mean crab cake.

The pictures do not do this house justice! It is breath-taking from the moment you walk in and the charm continues throughout. I rented the house and the cottage while on a trip to DC and it was more than enough room for my group. It was so comforting to be able to come back from the hustle and bustle of the city and relax at "home" each night (in the rooms, on the porch, or in the private back yard). This house is located in a great neighborhood with plenty of street parking right out the front door, and it's only a 20 minute drive to down-town DC. We also saved a ton of money utilizing the (fully stocked with equipment) kitchen facilities and dining in the over-sized dining room. The house was well kept, very inviting, and the free wifi was more than handy when making last minute schedule changes, or checking in with friends and family back home. The owner was absolutely wonderful to work with. She checked in with our group before, during and after our stay, and was incredibly accommodating to any and all of our needs! She went above and beyond. I will be back!

This last week, I held a corporate retreat here and it was an awesome experience! The house is beautiful, full of character, very spacious and comfortable. Every bathroom and bedroom is unique. The bathrooms are all updated and full of character. Sandy was easy to work with and answered all my many questions. The cost was much cheaper than staying in a hotel - but the experience was far more memorable. Everyone on my team told me it was the best retreat we've ever had - and the house played a big roll in making it special.
