This small carriage house is a wonderful place to stay. I was in the Washington area for an extended visit and thoroughly enjoyed this cozy Georgetown retreat. The house is conveniently located just several blocks from any shopping one might need to do...grocery ,banks and gas stations only two blocks away There are also several beautiful parks and museums within walking distance. I look forward to my next visit to the DC area and a return to this little gem

perfect for a couple

Great Georgetown location. Everything within walking distance. Snug, ship's cabin-like interior. Kitchen is fine for making breakfast; would be a little small if you were hoping to make more elaborate meals, but we ate out (there are plenty of good places in easy reach). Convenient off-street parking a real plus. We are likely to return.

Prime location, very comfortable, a perfect VRBO

I rented this carriage house for my sister and brother-in-law who were having a baby down the street at MedStar Georgetown. There were complications with the baby and there would be a possible extended NICU stay. The owner was extremely helpful and responsive throughout the entire process as I asked for a few special requests.

The house has everything you need to feel right at home. The patio is fantastic for lunch outside, the living room with a fire place is super cozy, the kitchen has all the necessities to cook a great meal, and you can't beat the location for the price.

Two thumbs up/5 stars for this property and the attention provided by the owner.

A Most Charming Georgetown Carriage House

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

My husband and I spent a splendid October with our Cairn Terrier in this charming little townhouse. While it is small, the owners have seen to it that you have all you require for a nice stay. They were very pleasant and easy to reach. The photos are accurate, and the place was clean and well organized. The washer and dryer were a plus, linen was plentiful and the shower was outstanding. This is actually a historic building that was once the carriage house for a larger neighboring building. There is a lot of light, and the home has an efficient heating and cooling system. The wifi worked well (my husband finished editing his novel here!). The location is excellent - surrounded by other delightful historic houses in a unique neighborhood, but just a couple of blocks from a large market, and the shops and restaurants of Wisconsin Avenue. We went without a car for the whole month (although there is a parking space available), as we were able to walk to buy groceries and visit most of Georgetown. Also within walking distance are Georgetown University, the beautiful gardens of Dumbarton Oaks, and the restored library. Just walking the brick sidewalks past the nicely kept townhouses and seeing the leaves turn was an everyday treat. Bus lines are nearby to take you over to the center of town or down to the National Mall, though Uber and taxis are easy to get and will save you time. Don't miss Bonaparte - a small French crepe restaurant on Wisconsin, or Clyde's for classic American on M Street. Ri Ra on M Street is Irish - a great spot for a cheeseburger or shepherd's pie with a Guinness. There is so much to see and do in Washington, and this was a wonderful place to come home to each day. We hope to return in the future!

Another Great stay

Another great experience in this Georgetown carriage House. I spent a month (September) and things could not have been any better. This place has everything needed for a great time, it is truly a home away from home. This was my third year to stay here and am looking forward to next year. Would recommend this place to anyone.
