About the property

1 BR 1 BA Sleeps

This property is a unique historic carriage house of extraordinary design, formerly the studio of a metal sculptor. Very high ceilings, artistically styled, fabulous space and location. Modern decor, many pieces made by the sculptor and furniture designer. Loft bedroom, all the comforts while staying in an actual piece of art! The kitchen and bathroom have recently been remodeled with quality: artisan crafted cabinets in the kitchen and unique modern bathroom design by an artist.

Downstairs is an open floor space. The dining table is the artist's refinished work table. Much of the furniture is uniquely crafted as well.Upstairs is a brand new queen bed and several comfy seating areas for working or reading.

Everything is fresh as it has been recently renovated; all the bedding, dishes, etc are brand new. The carriage house has been featured in the Washington Post and has twice been chosen to be on the Dupont Circle House Tour and the Logan Circle House Tour.

This carriage house, or studio as we always call it, is a private space for guests with a private entrance. It's like having your own little home with everything you need to be comfortable. There is an area in front of the carriage house where you can hang out in good weather with chairs and a table and umbrella.

The Dupont-Logan neighborhood is central to shopping, dining, clubs and walking distance to just about everything you might want to do in DC. Parks are nearby, Metro, Bike-sharing, steps away.

Please note that you must walk down a short, and safe alley to get to the carriage house. Please do not go to any of the row houses to access the location. They are not associated with the space.

Our stay was wonderful. The place is exactly as described and pictured. Beautiful residential area, walking distance to the mall area. Nice that the owner is near by too. It was the perfect place to stay for us.

A Special Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

If you like art, a quiet place away from the tourist crowds and access to lots of good restaurants, this is a great place to stay. My time in the carriage house was comfortable with everything provided in the kitchen, bathroom and bedroom for its guests. I greatly enjoyed discovering all of the sculptures, paintings and photographs by the artist that worked here. As a woman staying here alone, I always felt safe in the neighborhood and walking down the short alley even when returning late at night.

Wonderfully artistic space. Great location and incredibly nice property owner!

  • 5 of 5

The property is tucked away just off the street. Looks just like the pictures. Susan was great, walked us over and situated us to the neighborhood. Walking distance to great restaurants as well as Trader Joe's and Whole Foods and a quick ride or long walk to Capitol Hill. Clean, safe, artsy, which we loved.

I had a fabulous time staying at Susan's apartment. I love the feel of the place.

  • 5 of 5

Susan's apartment is very unique. When I arrived Susan had me meet her at her house so she could show me how to get to the apartment. Once there, she gave me a tour and told me about the apartment. The apartment is just amazing with all the sculpture that make up the apartment. It is just so unique! My stay there was amazing. I absolutely feel in love with the place and wish it could have been mine. I come to dc every other week so I would love to stay at Susan's apartment every time I am in DC. Not only is the apartment very comfortable but so was the bed. I slept like a baby and felt comfortable the entire time.

Washington DC Carriage House

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful stay at this unique property tucked behind row houses. Great location between Dupont Circle/Logan Circle area. Also very close to U Street Corridor. Easy walk and approximately equidistant to Dupont Circle or U St Metro. Safe neighborhood at all hours of the day & night, lots of people walking & bike riding. Lots of sights & great places to eat within walking distance. Kitchen and bathroom well equipped, all appliances in excellent working order. Comfortable bed and air mattress. Property was spotless upon arrival. Owner Susan couldn't be more accommodating as she still was happy to meet us even though we arrived at 1:00 in the morning due to a flight delay. She was easy to get a hold of throughout the entire process before the trip and during our week in DC. Would definitely stay here again.

Car: not necessary

The Dupont Logan area is one of DC's hottest neighborhoods noted for proximity to restaurants, entertainment, parks and shopping. Monuments and downtown DC are near as well. Transportation is easy with bikesharing, cabs, Ubers, metro and buses. Walking is great too! All this is going on, yet the property is in a quiet location.
