Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

The location of the property is perfect for a visit to Washington DC. The Butterfields were very helpful and accommodated us every way they could. The house is over 100 years old and has a lot of character. We all loved the old house and had no problems accommodating 11 people. Would stay here again if I return to Washington. Walking distance to Capitol, Metro, restaurants and to the National Mall .

Wonderful Location! Wonderful Hosts!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you, Steve and JoL, for sharing your home with us and making an otherwise somber trip much more comfortable. Our 10 family members were in town for a service at Arlington Cemetery and from the time we booked this home, Steve and JoL provided us every courtesy they could. The home comfortably accommodated 4 couples, a single and a teen on an air mattress in the larger room. Steve even allowed us use of the carriage house in back to enable us to spread out a bit more and take advantage of an extra bathroom. When we visited, there was a heat wave and the A/C went out, but Steve very quickly addressed it by placing A/C wall units in each room and was very attentive to our comfort. This location is within easy walking distance to the US Capitol Building and the entire Mall and the metro is an easy walk around the block. We loved everything about this place and would eagerly stay here again.

Great Choice

  • 5 of 5

This place is a no-brainer. We had a group of 9, 4 adults and 5 kids in two families, and the house accommodated us nicely for four nights. It is very conveniently located to the Capitol South Metro station and a 15 minute or less walk to the Capitol and the museums on the southeast side of the mall (Air and Space and American Indian). We picked up the Old Town Trolley hop on hop off tour at the Peace Monument stop. We parked off-site through Parking Panda for $15-20 per day about a mile away or a $7 uber ride if you don't want to walk. We took the metro to Arlington National Cemetery and the Zoo, but uber may be easier and faster for about the same cost. The house has all the room and amenities you need for a few days as long as you can handle some stairs, and Steve and JoL were great to work with. I also found this house to be a lot better value than some of the other places I looked at in the Adams Morgan area. We would not hesitate to stay here again on our next visit to DC.

Historic, close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

This property is perfect for those who like to live in a little bit of history one block from the Capitol. Beautifully restored and still has its charm, this three floor home has plenty of amenities, fantastic mattresses, and is within walking distance of many locations. Owners were lovely to work with throughout the experience. Will stay here again!
