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 Unit

  • 5 of 5

This Eastern Market HomeAway rental is a well-equipped, very pleasant space with its own outdoor balcony seating area for morning coffees, a highly responsive owner, and possessed of easy and quick access to all Capital landmarks. The home is situated in a beautiful neighborhood with lots of character, terrific architecture, easy food shopping and numerous excellent restaurants. The nearby historic Eastern Market complex is a destination in and of itself. I highly recommend this property for a pleasant, comfortable stay in a great location for all your Washington area sightseeing ambitions.

First Time in DC

  • 5 of 5

This was a fantastic home base for me as I explored DC on my first ever visit to the city. The suite (#2) is cozy, charming, and impeccably maintained. It was so much better than a hotel room and even has a lovely terrace, although it was a bit too chilly for this Southern Californian to use. As mentioned in other reviews, the staircase is steep and narrow, so take your time getting up the stairs with your luggage. Kirk sent detailed, helpful instructions for accessing and securing the unit and using the TV and other appliances. The metro station is half a block away and Circulator blue line bus runs on the next block over, 8th Street. 8th Street has a small organic market, a Dunkin Donuts, Starbucks, many restaurants, a nail salon, etc. There's a Trader Joe's conveniently located just up the street. I thoroughly enjoyed my time in the suite and highly recommend it.

A near perfect place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The space is exactly like the pictures. Very comfortable and perfect for two or three people. Kirks' instructions were right on the mark and easy to understand. An all coded entry system to the unit was appreciated so we didn't have to worry about losing or forgetting a key. The proximity to the metro was a reason we chose this location and it was a good idea since the weather was wet and cold on our visit. The Trader Joe's a couple of blocks away was very convenient for picking up food items since we were there for six nights. There is a wide variety of restaurants within a few blocks radius; however, if you happen to be a vegetarian your choices are somewhat limited. The 7th Hill is a very small casual pizza place that is good but The Matchbox was our favorite. More variety in a comfortable space.

Our only complaint was that there was little to no kitchen supplies. No plastic wrap, no foil, no condiments of any kind. If you buy food at a market and want to keep it fresh or cook something in the oven it can present problems. For week long stays I can't help but feel these could be provided. Also, there was no kleenex....that seems like a pretty basic convenience but there was none to be found, we had to buy it.

Still, these were minor issues as we loved our stay at this property and would not hesitate to stay here again. Thanks to Kirk.

Lovely place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This is an absolutely lovely place. And the location couldn't be better. Lots of restaurants nearby, a Trader Joe's down the street and the metro less than 1/2 a block away

The unit I stayed in on the second floor was delightful and the weather was nice enough to take advantage of the deck. Bed was comfortable, bathroom was spotless. I will definitely stay there again!
