History of the Guest House: Kirk Beatley is a fourth generation Washingtonian whose family has lived on Capitol Hill since the late 1800s, and where he continues to live today with his wife and two children. In 1905, Kirk's Great-Grandmother, Margaret, purchased this1890 Victorian home to entice her newly married daughter, Nell, to raise her own family in the neighborhood. Nell and her husband, John Luskey, raised their 12 children in this home.

In 2008 Kirk purchased the house from relatives who had owned or lived in the house since 1905, and then Kirk and his family spent over two years meticulously restoring and renovating the home, blending old-world Victorian charm and grace with new world appliances and technology.

Today, Kirk's family, a fifth generation of Washingtonians, are honored to offer you the opportunity of experiencing residential living in their newly updated family's house, in the heart of our Nation's Capitol, at the Historic Eastern Market on Capitol Hill!

Great location - Great stay

  • 5 of 5

First, this unit couldn't be more convenient. It truly is 1/2 a block from the Eastern Market Metro station. Eastern Market is great because it isn't far by metro from all of the DC sites. It also has plenty of restaurants, shopping, and even a pharmacy.

The apartment is very nice. Everything was up to date, the kitchen had very nice appliances, the furniture was comfortable, the TV was newer and hooked up to comcast. I came to DC for business meetings, so I was by myself but this was much more comfortable than a hotel room.

The one drawback some might find with this unit is that it is a second story apartment. As with most older units the stairs are a bit steep but this would only be a problem for someone that has a problem climbing stairs. Once in the unit, everything is on one level.

All the comforts of home!

  • 5 of 5

Eastern Market suites is located right next to the metro, grocery store, CVS, locally owned restaurants and shops, minutes from the mall and museums; it was the perfect location for our stay in DC. The suite was clean, beautifully decorated and provided all the comforts of home: fully stocked kitchen with cookware, washer and dryer, separate living room, and a back porch for relaxing. If we are in town again, we will be staying here and would recommend our friends and family to stay here also. Thank you, Kirk!

A Wonderful Extended Weekend

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were in town for an extended weekend and found the Eastern Market Suites unit to be perfect for us. The unit is well appointed and extremely well located. The proximity to the Eastern Market Subway Station is a huge benefit and made it very easy for us to get where we needed to go. Kirk (the owner) was professional and helpful with our early check-in. We definitely recommend this rental unit to others and will try to reserve it again when we are planning to visit DC.

Second Stay

  • 5 of 5

We chose this apartment because we'd had such a good experience with Kirk's first floor let in the same house. We weren't disappointed......the second floor gives a bit more space and provides all the facilities and ambience of the lower one.

We are really pleased to have found Kirk's suites and will reserve it for our daughter and for ourselves, whenever we are in DC.

An excellent apartment in an excellent location

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying in the Eastern Markets area, and at this characterful apartment, which would be hard to beat anywhere. All of the rooms and facilities were spotlessly clean, with all that you could need to enjoy a great vacation. Being on the top floor was ideal for us.

We did not have a car during our stay. If you are not going outside of the city/suburbs, a car is not really necessary as public transport is very good. You are only a minute's walk from the Metro, which gets you down town in no time at all. Local buses are also very good.

I would recommend this apartment unreservedly. Our enquiries prior to our stay were answered quickly and professionally by Kirk, who did a great job as our host. If we ever return to DC, this would be our base once more.

PS. One tip that we would suggest; as visitors from the UK and big tea drinkers, we would recommend an electric kettle!!

Complete. Clean. Comfortable. Convenient.

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this welcoming location. I had no hesitation to rebook and will do so again when we travel to DC.

Kirk takes pride in this property and it shows through how well it is maintained, and also through his proactive communication and responsiveness to questions.

We spent seven nights this time and were able to enjoy the neighborhood as well as have great access to the rest of the District.

Great job.
