Fair 4.0
Not what I expected based on the high ratings.
A place to sleep since most hotels were sold-out. Minimal accommodations.

Great value and location.
This is a wonderful bed and breakfast. We have stayed a number of times over the years and have never been disappointed. Jack is a welcoming and efficient host, the breakfast is varied and plentiful, and the location in Woodley Park near several buslines and the Metro can't be beat. Rooms are nicely furnished, and the dining and living room areas are spacious. A great value.

A guesthouse conducive to genuine conversation
Jack is a great host....this feels like you're visiting your cousin's charming old house with complimentary wine and cookies and a great breakfast. The rooms aren't huge or furnished with the most recent decor (though the shower and bathroom actually are). But it feels authentic and cozy and thus guests actually talk to each other.
