Photos and Description of this Hill East holiday house

2 Bedroom, 2 Bath, Sleeps 6-8! Amazing Location!

Once behind the doors of this beautiful Capitol Hill Rowhome, it's hard to believe you are in the city. Eastern influence, antiques & beautiful art, this is a true relaxation haven whether you are on business or vacation. Sleeps 6-8 with 2 bathrooms and parking. Monthly rates available!

This is a brand new listing and so whilst we have no reviews at the moment, we will have some very soon! We are also adding more photographs next week of the upstairs, outside, kitchen, bedrooms and bathrooms.

This beautiful 1930s Victorian rowhouse on Capitol Hill is conveniently located four blocks from Eastern Market Metro with a full range of shops, restaurants and entertainment!

The home has amazing proximity to The Library of Congress, all the Smithsonian Museums and the National Gallery of Art. Enjoy the city life as a local, with the tranquility of an Eastern retreat to call home!

Many charming touches include hardwood floors, a brick patio with a long back yard (and a fig tree!), as well as a sunny eat-in kitchen!

There are two fireplaces in addition to bay windows and skylights that contribute to the bountiful light in this the warm home.

Perfect for vacationers, visiting Researchers or Fellows looking for a quiet place to work, write and read in the city! Monthly rates available.

We were very disappointed in this house. Although the location is excellent and it was clean we found it it not at all "relaxing" and obviously not well maintained. The beds were extremely uncomfortable. One is a mattress on a pallet style bed (very low to floor) and the other is actually a futon. After walking all day we really wanted someplace comfortable to sit and put up our feet in the evenings but the one couch (also a sleeper) was small, hard, and threadbare and the floor cushions, although nice in appearance, were also not comfortable for sitting. The table in the backyard is broken and one of the chairs appears to be also. One of the two kitchen chairs is also broken. The microwave does not function. There's a washer and dryer but it's down in the basement which has lots of broken glass on the floor - we didn't try using it. The bathrooms are fine - clean and good water pressure - but the upstairs door does not shut. Some light switches are broken off. There are lots of pots and pans but nothing for baking - we just wanted to make cookies and had to use a very worn broiler pan with foil to cover the grease stains. We had to use a bathroom towel for a hot pad since none were in the kitchen - no kitchen towels or dish cloths either. There's only one real coffee mug and the coffee maker is a french press which we like so was ok for us but doesn't make much at one time. I'd recommend surveying the kitchen before planning to cook much. It just feels like it was furnished and stocked with leftovers and garage sale bargains. The management company was quick to respond to requests but the only reason we contacted them is because we needed more bath towels - only two were provided although we made reservations for four - dishwasher detergent (only one pod was in the kitchen), toilet paper, and paper towels. Beware if you drive that street cleaning prohibits parking on Wed and Thurs - we got a ticket for this.
