Life as it was in days gone by: This bright and beautiful room has an antique four-poster bed with a new down comforter (not shown in the photo), a reading lamp, a big teacher's desk, its own small refrigerator, and a large armoire that holds a television.
Bed linens and bath towels are provided. You are welcome to share all of the common areas of house with us as well as two or three other people who are renting other rooms in our home. The house has hardwood floors, a wood-burning fireplace in the living room, wonderful Whirlpool Duet washing machine and dryer (with limited hours since we share these with the occupants of our basement apartment), and a fabulous deck overlooking a patio, yard, & garden.
The shared full bathroom has just been renovated. No boring neutral colors here, this is a happy red bathroom that will get your day off to a great start. This bathroom serves two bedrooms on the house's second floor (this room plus Ian's Room.)
While breakfast is not included, there are bagel and coffee shops as well as numerous restaurants within about a 10-minute walk. We invite you to kick back with complimentary morning coffee or tea, or relax after a big day with your own happy hour in our fantastic yard, garden, and patio, with a huge dining deck overlooking it all (you can buy wine and beer at the nearby Giant Foods grocery store, and those items plus spirits at Plain Old Pearson's liquor store.)
Housemates include our indoor/outdoor cat, Blackie, and might include a dog. We don't own any dogs, but we do occasionally board a dog or two whose owners are out of town. If having a dog in the house is a concern for you, please ask me if we will have any dogs staying with us on the dates you need a place.
If you have a car and need parking, we can obtain a parking permit for your car for $15/day. Street parking is available, but like almost all residential areas of Washington, it is zoned for residential parking and if you don't have a resident parking permit, you are limited to parking just two hours on weekdays.
Within about a 10-minute walk, you will find a Giant Foods grocery store (where you can buy a glass of wine or a beer to sip while you are shopping!), numerous restaurants, coffee shops, bars, and pharmacies. You can walk past the Vice President's residence and down Embassy Row to DuPont Circle, or run/walk on the nearby Glover Park trail (no cars or bikes on this trail) and into Georgetown. Washington National Cathedral is 2 blocks away.
There is so much to love in Cathedral Heights! The trees, the birds, the quiet, and the low crime rate. Since buying our home in 2004, we have never had any of our guests or renters feel unsafe walk…
Metrobus stops are 2 short blocks away; Woodley Park/Zoo metro is the closest subway station and is a long walk at 1.3 miles or 8 minutes by bus to Tenleytown/AU station. One mile walk to Georgetown U…
