About Deborah Knorr

I am a contractor who specializes in restoration of historic homes in Washington, D.C. My wife and I have lived since the late 1990s in a 1876 Victorian home in LeDroit Park that I spent almost ten years restoring.

Deborah Knorr purchased this townhome in 1999

Why Deborah Knorr chose Washington DC

This is a unique area of Washington, D.C. with great history and architecture. We have enjoyed meeting vistors from around the world in the year that we have offered the townhome as a vacation rental.

A wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful property, which I cannot recommend highly enough. We were 7 in our party, so were very comfortable spread over the 4 bedrooms. I think it would be crowded with 14 though. The house was clean and tidy and all the furnishings and equipment are of the highest quality. Patrick, the landlord, was very friendly and helpful. Although on one occassion we were warned at the metro that the area was not safe to walk around at night, we felt perfectly safe walking to and from the metro, though we did not do this late at night. It is a short metro ride to the centre of Washington. Highly recommend hiring bikes from Thomson boat and cycle hire as a way of seeing the main sights. Do not bother with the Double Decker bus tours - they do not run frequently or regularly, nor do they keep to their scheduled route and stops. A complete waste of money and a precious days sight-seeing.

Owner's Response: This is a very safe neighborhood from the Metro stops. The area is established as a historic district. I live in the area and I find it to be as safe as any location in DC. This is the only neighborhood that I would live in DC. I love it, it is quiet and friendly.

Awesome and convenient!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful! Close to everything and very comfortable! All the luxuries of home. Large home only 10 minute walk to the Metro and about a $10 cab ride to all the good stuff. Why stay in hotel when you can be comfortable and have extra leg room. We plan on staying here again!

Great place for a large group.

  • 5 of 5

Overall, a great place to stay in DC. The house is about a ten minute walk to the metro and there are several convenience stores nearby. There are two zipcar locations very close, which we used to do a larger grocery trip to Safeway a couple miles away. The owners are very responsive and got us a propane tank within minutes when the barbecue ran out. We fit ten adults and two kids without any problems; although, like most classic houses, the kitchen is fairly small. We never ran out of hot water and the kitchen was adequately stocked with dishes and cooking implements. I would absolutely recommend this house to anyone bringing a larger group to Washington DC.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a nice time in DC at this house. The house is very clean and the beds are comfy. Lots of great space. The metro is about 4 blocks away and a nice walk. As I female, I felt safe to walk to the station alone during daylight hours. We generally felt safe, although some blocks from our very nice road was a bit of a rougher area. It is the City after all! This is a great place for families who want space and a quick metro ride into all of the national mall stuff. We would definitely stay here again. Our deposit was returned quickly without issue.

Wonderful and comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here very much. We are 4 couples and we were very comfortable and had plenty of room. The walk to the metro station was easy. The kitchen was perfect for our needs. Would definitely recommend this home and would stay here again.

Comfortable with character

  • 4 of 5

This property was roomy enough for our party of four adult women friends (we like each having our own bedroom, and a kitchen). TVs in every bedroom but not in the living room. Kitchen was well stocked, except no oven mitt. We had to call the owner with a few questions to get the wifi and AC controls clear, but he was immediately available. The front steps are uneven and so a little hard to navigate. The neighborhood is lovely and interesting, with lots of rowhouses and plenty of restaurants and a grocery store a short walk away. The metro station was a 10-minute walk, not bad. We enjoyed ourselves during our 5 day stay in DC. People were friendly and helpful everywhere we went!
