About Deborah Knorr

I am a contractor who specializes in restoration of historic homes in Washington, D.C. My wife and I have lived since the late 1990s in a 1876 Victorian home in LeDroit Park that I spent almost ten years restoring.

Deborah Knorr purchased this townhome in 1999

Why Deborah Knorr chose Washington DC

This is a unique area of Washington, D.C. with great history and architecture. We have enjoyed meeting vistors from around the world in the year that we have offered the townhome as a vacation rental.

A wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful property, which I cannot recommend highly enough. We were 7 in our party, so were very comfortable spread over the 4 bedrooms. I think it would be crowded with 14 though. The house was clean and tidy and all the furnishings and equipment are of the highest quality. Patrick, the landlord, was very friendly and helpful. Although on one occassion we were warned at the metro that the area was not safe to walk around at night, we felt perfectly safe walking to and from the metro, though we did not do this late at night. It is a short metro ride to the centre of Washington. Highly recommend hiring bikes from Thomson boat and cycle hire as a way of seeing the main sights. Do not bother with the Double Decker bus tours - they do not run frequently or regularly, nor do they keep to their scheduled route and stops. A complete waste of money and a precious days sight-seeing.

Owner's Response: This is a very safe neighborhood from the Metro stops. The area is established as a historic district. I live in the area and I find it to be as safe as any location in DC. This is the only neighborhood that I would live in DC. I love it, it is quiet and friendly.

Good but needs attention

  • 4 of 5

The house fit our needs. It was big and nicely restored. It was also in the neighborhood we wished to stay in. However, attention to details was needed. There were no TV instructions (I was in the area before so understood it was rather complicated ), two TVs had very poor picture quality (the other two were fine) the bath soaps were little ones you find in cheap hotels, the newel post on the banister and one of the dining room needed glue, no shampoo, no replacement sheets, no garbage bags, only one key for 6-8 people, and a lamp in the living room was broken.

We enjoyed our stay. With a little work they could charge more.

The property accommodated our nine member family comfortably. It allowed us to have a great time.

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time in the house. It is a wonderful old house which has been kept up and it is clean. It is close to the subway. The house is located in a safe community. We would rent here again. We recommend this house with no reservations.

Great time with the family

  • 5 of 5

Had a terrific experience at this property. There were 11 of us in total and we had plenty of space. Location was great - close to downtown but also close to subway, and there were plenty of local amenities. House was tidy and clean, service was great, and overall we had a brilliant time!

Awesome and convenient!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful! Close to everything and very comfortable! All the luxuries of home. Large home only 10 minute walk to the Metro and about a $10 cab ride to all the good stuff. Why stay in hotel when you can be comfortable and have extra leg room. We plan on staying here again!

Great place for a large group.

  • 5 of 5

Overall, a great place to stay in DC. The house is about a ten minute walk to the metro and there are several convenience stores nearby. There are two zipcar locations very close, which we used to do a larger grocery trip to Safeway a couple miles away. The owners are very responsive and got us a propane tank within minutes when the barbecue ran out. We fit ten adults and two kids without any problems; although, like most classic houses, the kitchen is fairly small. We never ran out of hot water and the kitchen was adequately stocked with dishes and cooking implements. I would absolutely recommend this house to anyone bringing a larger group to Washington DC.
