The highly rated vacation rental is conveniently situated in DC's prized Northwest neighborhood. Here you will find a true urban oasis, marrying the tranquility of a peaceful retreat with proximity to the city. Relax on our front porch as you wait for the “every seven minutes” bus to come directly across the street. In 25 minutes or less, it’ll take you directly to the middle of the city or in 10 minutes you’ll be at the Metro station. But if you and any of your guests are driving, we have free, unlimited, on-street parking.

Some of our other features include wireless Internet, flat screen TVs in all bedrooms, Jacuzzi tubs. Our gourmet kitchen allows you all of the space you need to make that special meal or we can also take care of your breakfast, lunch or dinner requests with our fabulous caterer. We have break-out areas for your corporate retreat, including several rooms that close off for privacy and two ipe architectural decks to spread out in.

For even more space, you can elect to add the Enchanted Cottage -- located 20 yards behind the Inn -- in your stay (additional fee). With a living space and small kitchen upstairs, there is a spiral staircase that connects to a lovely bedroom with a wonderful garden view. The Enchanted Cottage has a Romeo-Juliet balcony and a bathroom with a claw foot tub and a bidet. Oh, so romantic!

We offer enough versatility where you can relax and read a good book in the downstairs living areas near one of our two first floor fireplaces, or close off one of our three chestnut pocket doors for meetings.

We have ample, free, safe parking and are located on a major thoroughfare two miles from downtown.

We are The Uptown House and we look forward to hearing from you!

Lovely home to share family time together

  • 5 of 5

The home was beautiful inside and out! It was well furnished with almost everything we needed. Sandy was readily available if any questions or concern arose; communication with her was simple and prompt. There was plenty of room for everyone to be together or find a quiet space if needed. I loved the porch--I could have sat there all day!

Simply amazing place for 20+ family in DC for my daughter's wedding

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved staying at the Uptown House. 10 bedrooms plus the cottage provided plenty of space for most of our families coming to DC for our daughter's wedding. We had plenty of space to spread out, relax, eat, drink and talk! Sandy was incredibly flexible and responsive. Help make this special weekend an extraordinary event!!!

Has become a tradition!

  • 5 of 5

We love the Uptown House! We just completed our fourth annual trip to DC during which we've stayed at the house. It is perfect for large groups -- plenty of sleeping space, lovely large kitchen, gorgeous back yard and patio. Metro bus stop right across the street, easy access to public transportation. Groceries can be delivered right to the house. The owner is amazing. Can't say enough good things!!

Grand Time in a Grand Home

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the home,the kitchen is impressive ,with restaurant grade appliances There was ample room for a party of adults and children. Video system worked well the beds were comfortable , the location easily accessible by car from train station . . Sandy was a very helpful, friendly and accommodating . We imagine that the lower patio and gazebo will be fabulous in the spring and summer ! We appreciated the provision of coffee and tea. Regret that the jacuzzis were not operational and an upgrade of the toiletries is in order. Sandy if you have another rental property in another vacation area Let us know !
