But if you and any of your guests are driving, we have free, unlimited, on-street parking.

Our gourmet kitchen allows you all of the space you need to make that special meal or we can also take care of your breakfast, lunch or dinner requests with our fabulous caterer. We have break-out areas for your corporate retreat, including several rooms that close off for privacy and two ipe architectural decks to spread out in.

For even more space, you can elect to add the Enchanted Cottage -- located 20 yards behind the Inn -- in your stay (additional fee). With a living space and small kitchen upstairs, there is a spiral staircase that connects to a lovely bedroom with a wonderful garden view. The Enchanted Cottage has a Romeo-Juliet balcony and a bathroom with a claw foot tub and a bidet. Oh, so romantic!

We offer enough versatility where you can relax and read a good book in the downstairs living areas near one of our two first floor fireplaces, or close off one of our three chestnut pocket doors for meetings.

We have ample, free, safe parking and are located on a major thoroughfare two miles from downtown.

We are The Uptown House and we look forward to hearing from you!

One in a Million

  • 5 of 5

9 of us came DC for a college reunion, and the house surprised us in many ways. It was just gorgeous! and provided a welcoming, warm sophisticated home for renewing friendships. The kitchen was huge, with up to date appliance; bedrooms and baths simply perfect; long beautiful dining table; and Teddy, could not have been more accommodating.

All of us highly recommend this lovely home. It is a rare gem.

Great "Friendsgiving" get together!

  • 5 of 5

My group of 14 adults and 5 kids had a great weekend in the Uptown house. Large bedrooms most with attached bathrooms, great kitchen with most everything we needed to cook a Thanksgiving meal, and a nice little backyard for the little ones to run around in. Beautiful dining area. We were a little off-put by the $100 charge for any light left on and $25 charges for blinds or items left on the wrong floor, but luckily we incurred none of these charges in the end. Teddy was very nice to work with. I would definitely recommend this house for reunions and get-togethers. Adults and kids all had a wonderful time.

The Uptown House was a perfect destination for our work group of 9. We had plenty of space in a beautifully appointed historic DC house on upper 14th Street NW. Would absolutley stay here again!

This is an amazing house!

  • 5 of 5

This place is awesome! We had a large group in DC attending a funeral at Arlington National Cemetary. The property is well maintained and Teddy was fantastic to work with. We had older folks and some small children and everything we needed was available. They even have pack and plays, air mattresses, futons, and roll always. Everyone gets a bed and there are plenty of bathrooms to go around also. The kitchen is amazing. Two dishwashers. Two refrigerators. Tons of silverware, glasses, dishes, cookware, etc. It is beautifully decorated and updated in all of the right places. We spent a lot of time on the front and back porches. It is close enough to the attractions that we used Uber and it didn't take long or cost a fortune. We had several that rented cars and we had parking in front. There are some neat little restaurants within walking distance and the Zoo is close also. We loved being able to be together and then being able to go relax in a different place when you wanted. Having 10 hotel rooms would have cost more and made that gathering much more difficult. We had a meal catered in after the funeral and some other family joined us. Everyone loved the house and it made us realize we should do this more often. My room was on the third floor and I definitely got my steps in while in DC. This place is a treasure!
