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!

100% recommend

  • 5 of 5

Our stay exceeded our expectations. .the place was clean and it was steps away from the metro...restaurants was just steps away ...breakfast at "Ted's Bulletin" was awesome and dinner at Thai restaurant " SanPhan" was great..The owner Kirk was very accomodating. He even gave us a little more time on checkout day because we had to tour the White House in the morning, so we just took the subway and he let us keep our luggages in the suite until we got back..I would definitely stay here again and will recommend it to anyone who wants to stay in a quiet neighborhood in DC..Thanks Kirk for an exceptional stay..

Best DC Stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed the beautiful 2nd floor apartment on Capitol Hill for two nights on a recent business trip. Our host Kirk was very quick to answer any questions and also very easy to work with on check-in and out. The property has everything you could possible need to feel at home, very nicely decorated, a nice large living area, very comfy bedroom with lots of storage, well appointed kitchen, a really nice bathroom and a big back porch. We also really enjoyed the neighborhood, quite and safe with lot's of great restaurants around the corner (we recommend Ted's Bulletin), metro half a block away (also capital bike share), nearby pharmacy, grocery, etc. We also walked to the Library of Congress from the apartment in about 15 min. We couldn't have been happier with our choice of this beautiful apartment and would definitely use again on future trips. Thanks again to our host Kirk.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our two boys. They slept on the pull out sofa. Apartment was great. Nice kitchen and a relaxing back porch. A short walk to the metro and we could go anywhere. Definitely enjoyed this much more than a hotel.

Well kept, enchanting original architectural features, with the convenience of modern amenities.

  • 5 of 5

Conviently located condo, dining, transportation, all within walking distance. Was nice to come back to quiet oasis away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Would recommend to anyone that wants to be in the center of a historical district, with easy access to transportation to major tourist attractions.

This was a beautiful, clean place that is in a great location near the metro.

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I enjoyed our stay so much and Kirk was always available for any questions. It was such a cute, clean place to say that was literally 4 houses from the metro. In the evening after a day of sightseeing we could come back relax for a bit and head out to a number of restaurants right around the corner. This has the best location and Kirk was so easy to work with and I would definitely stay here again.
