Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Stanton Park - Blue House

Large 3 bedrm w/ double living room, renovated kitchen & fantastic front porch!!

Charming and spacious row house with a front porch in one of DC's great neighborhoods. Walking distance to everything! You will instantly feel at home in this 1880 row house just one block from Union Station (Red Line Metro stop) and only 4 to 5 blocks from the Capitol Building, Supreme Court, and Library of Congress. A beautiful tree-lined walk past decorative water fountains is all that separates you from all the museums, monuments and memorials on the National Mall.

You will be amazed with the convenience and elegance of Union Station and its Red Line Metro stop. The Red Line is the main backbone of the DC Metro -- connecting to all of the other lines -- so the entire metro area is just minutes away -- pop over to Gallery Place/China Town, Metro Center, Dupont Circle, the National Zoo, or Foggy Bottom without the hassle of traffic or parking. If you are looking for a taxi, there is always a line of them waiting in front of Union Station. You can also catch many of the tour buses and the famous amphibious duck tours at Union Station as well. If you want to get around by bicycle, there is also a Capital Bike Share station at Union Station — great for getting around on the mall — ride them to the White House or the Washington, Lincoln, and Jefferson Monuments.

Just around the corner from the house is the world's best bagel shop (no better sandwiches anywhere) and several other great neighborhood restaurants with outside seating along Massachusetts Avenue. Ask for Milton at La Loma -- the best margaritas around -- relaxing under shade umbrellas is one of the best ways to pass an afternoon or evening. We are also conveniently located to Eastern Market and all the shops and restaurants along Pennsylvania Avenue and 8th Street SE (about 1 mile away). We are even closer (just a few blocks) to one of the hottest growing areas in all of DC: the H Street Corridor with all of its great restaurants, bars, and boutique shopping.

If you want to get your own groceries and cook, there is a brand new Giant grocery store that just opened up 3 blocks away. The kitchen is fully stocked for even the most demanding chef. Entertain in the dining room or enjoy hosting on the back patio area just off the kitchen.

The house is spacious with two living rooms -- one with a fireplace, the other with a floor-to-ceiling bay window looking out on E Street. The kitchen has a cozy breakfast nook and small bar seating area. Or you can choose among several options for sitting outside. There is the huge front porch, perfect for people watching, or relax in the more private back patio area, or choose instead to sit on the second floor back deck. Enough space for everyone to spread out and you can try a different spot to relax every evening. If you want even more space, ask us about our English basement studio space with separate entrance (850 square feet -- sleeps 2-4 -- full eat-in kitchen)(VRBO#577562).

The renovated kitchen has granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances, a 15 bottle wine cooler waiting to be filled, and a Keurig coffee maker that has you one button push away from a fresh brewed cup of coffee or tea (compliments of the house).

Upstairs, the master bedroom is exquisite — from the king size bed you can enjoy the beautiful view through the floor to ceiling bay windows. The middle bedroom has a double bed with a twin bunk bed. The back bedroom has a queen bed and opens out onto the back deck. There are two full size bathrooms with bathtub/shower combination on the second floor and a half bath on the first floor. Full size top-loading washing machine and dryer on the first floor.

Wi-fi internet throughout the house. TVs in the living room and master bedroom (Direct TV expanded package with HBO and Showtime -- parental controls available). TVs are also connected to internet for easy ordering of NetFlix movies. We also have a bunch of family board games and card games available.

Finally, we are very conveniently located for travelers coming in and out of the city. Washington National Airport is less than 3 miles away (15-20 minutes in good traffic) or you can take Metro from Union Station directly to National Airport. We are, of course, super convenient for anyone traveling by train — trains depart Union Station almost every hour for destinations up and down the east coast — catch a train and be in Manhattan in less than 4 hours (2 hours if you take the express Acela train) -- go catch a Broadway show!

Whatever your interest, whatever your need, we are confident you will feel at home while enjoying your vacation or tending to business in the nation’s capital.

Why Nevena S Hougen chose Washington DC

We love Capitol Hill and it is so convenient to all the sites in Washington DC. We are only one block to the Union Station Metro and Amtrak express train to New York. It takes less then 25 minutes walking to get to National Monument, 10 min to Capitol Building, Library of Congress and Supreme Court. All tourist attractions are convenient and there is lots to do right here in the neighborhood. There is a lot of restaurants with great food, parks and is very safe, historic and family oriented. The neighbors are wonderful. It is located in the heart of the Capitol Hill historic district. Eastern Market is very close by where you can get fresh and organic food, art and vintage clothing,antique furniture , etc.

Location is perfect for anything you want to do in Washington DC and it’s a great jumping off point if you want to explore Virginia and Maryland.

What makes this house unique

By staying in our very cozy and charming home, you will get to experience what it is like really living in the Historic Nations Capital.

What a fantastic property.

Only a four minute walk to Union Station and grocery store.

We had 7 people in this house and had plenty of room upstairs and downstairs.

Great to have washing machine and dryer. Safe area.

Can't wait to stay there again.

Great hospitality by Nevena.

We had a great time staying in the blue house. There is games for the family to play. My grown children played at night time. The area is very quite. The room and bathroom very clean. We had a great experience staying there. Union Station is close by with a walgreens. Thunder grill in union station very good. You can take the MARC train from BWI for $7.00. We rode the subway and Uber picked us up at the house very reasonable. Safe area to walk in at night back from union station. Overall we had a wonderful time and enjoyed staying in the house. Take a few tide pods with use to use the washer. Would recommend this house!!! thanks for a great stay and calling us and texting us!!

Great place to stay!

  • 4 of 5

The Blue House is very inviting. We especially loved sitting in the cooler evenings on the front porch, watching the world go by! Our two grandsons enjoyed having enough space where they could each do their own thing and the adults had plenty of space to stretch out as well. Great location, close to metro, restaurants, Union Station. Uber is super cheap and easy to use.

Location, Location, Location!

Overall, this was a wonderful property.

It very comfortably accommodated four adults and two teens. Two full baths upstairs assured there was minimal jockeying for position when getting ready. The beds were comfortable and common living area was nice for relaxing in and playing games in the evening.

The greatest and most surprising feature though is the location. It is literally a 5 minute walk to Union Station, where we started each days' excursions.

Finally, Nevena (the owner) was really helpful and very sweet, making us feel that much more welcome. We would definitely stay at Blue House again!

The property was perfect for our three day stay in the Washington DC area.

  • 4 of 5

We liked the house very much and loved the location near Union Station and the Capitol building. We visited DC for our son's graduation from Georgetown Law and the house worked nicely for our group. The house is reasonable well equipped and maintained. Easy access from the airport and walking distance to the National Mall. I would use it again if in the area.
