About this home

Built in 1896, this home retains all its historic charm yet has been brought up to date with an open concept main level and 21st century appliances. The location simply could not be better, as the home is on a quiet side street yet within a short walk of everything. It is only steps from a concentration of restaurants known as Restaurant Row, with tables out front by the sidewalk. Stanton Park, which is ideal for small children, is one block away. Union Station, from which virtually every sightseeing tour in Washington departs, is three blocks away, as are the Senate buildings, and immediately beyond them is the National Mall with major sights such as the Smithsonian museums and the National Archives.


Less than five blocks away:

- US Capitol

- US Supreme Court

- Library of Congress

- Folger Shakespeare Library

- Belmont-Paul Women's Equality museum

- Union Station



Within 1.5 miles:

- Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum

- Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History

- National Gallery of Art

- Smithsonian American Art Museum

- National Museum of the American Indian

- Hirshorn Museum (modern art)

- National Archives

- Verizon Center (Washington Wizards NBA team)

- Madam Tussaud's

- International Spy Museum

- Newseum

- US Botanical Garden

- National Building Museum



The home has been furnished for a family of four, but also has an optional twin-size and normal height inflatable bed for a fifth person. There is a crib, high chair, and stair gate for baby. It is ideal for a family with children who would like to visit sites such as the Smithsonian museums, the US Capitol, Supreme Court, National Archives, the Library of Congress, or the Newseum, among many others. Our neighborhood, Capitol Hill, is quiet yet so centrally located that the sites are within walking distance, a huge plus since none of them has parking. You will live like a local, walking one block to the grocery store with the house shopping cart, or getting around on DC's bright red public bicycles, which you can pick up at a bike rack close to the house.



Although we are steps from Restaurant Row, you will find the house equipped with a cook's kitchen. Whether it is a coffee grinder, a blender for margaritas, or a selection of spices, you will find it on hand.



Your rental comes with all linens, towels, a blow drier, a starter set of toiletries, etc. All you need to bring is a tooth brush!



So how to proceed?



We recommend using the 'Request Booking' button, which will confirm availability and provide a detailed quote before you reach the screen on which you are asked to commit. We book with the $150 cleaning fee, and the balance is due 30 days before arrival. All payments are self-service, via credit card or e-check using HomeAway's secure payments page. You do not need to provide us credit card information.



If we don't have your dates available, you may want to check our two other two-bedroom home, HomeAway property #339969.

    Lived like a local

    Loved our week at Restaurant Row House. This place had everything we needed to enjoy the dc experience in style and comfort. A big thank you to the owner!

    Wonderful location, great house!

    The house is just as described. Wonderful, quiet location. Close to everything yet peaceful and cozy. The only thing that would have made it better would be an easier entry lock system, we got used to it but it's a process and could be simplified. Also, we should have asked the owner's prior to arrival, so our fault. But it would have been more comfortable for our two teens if the bunk beds were separated and the crib was moved out of the room. If you have smaller kids it's fine, but not tall teens. But nothing to complain about at all. Would definitely recommend and stay; again!

    Had a blast in Stanton Park

    Great location and neighborhood. Well set up for families and kids which was much appreciated. It appeared as though a repairman was in the middle of work when we arrived as a ladder was left set up in a bathroom but the host was easily accessible and immediately helped resolve so it was just a minor issue. Would recommend the property to anyone visiting DC with family and who would like to fit right into a nice neighborhood.

    Absolutely Divine Property...Incredible Communication....Great Location...Loved it!!!

    We took our two children to DC and could not have picked a better place to stay. The location is close to the Capitol and Union Plaza so it felt close to everything as we could get anywhere easily. The information and suggestions they offer was helpful and utilized. The home was set for kids and yet had the charm and class for adults. Could not have asked for more!! Thank you Alec!!

    Lovely row house in ideal location

    We lived in the area for many years and came back to visit and this was a perfect spot to stay. My family of four had plenty of comfortable space, and the location can’t be beat. We will definitely return.
