Washington DC Bed & Breakfast Near the Metro

There are hundreds of chain hotels in DC, but only one bed and breakfast with close access to the Metro in the city. The Mt. Vernon bed and breakfast which is about three blocks from the Mt. Vernon metro station on the Yellow and Green line has nearly a spotless record when it comes to online reviews. The classic B&B setup, Keith and Lydia offer guests a choice of four rooms, and serve breakfast family style at 8:30am. Two of the rooms have access to a private balcony. One guests commented during their visit “at breakfast four different countries were represented. While the look of the large house is relatively unimpressive from the outside one guest commented the “inside is a gorgeous restoration of a beautiful old building. Lots of wood inlay details.”

The Neighborhood & Attractions

The neighborhood is not posh, but going through gentrification and is populated by a variety of residents. The new generation is typically 30 some professionals looking to buy their first home, or condo. At night it might be smart to take a cab rather than walk alone, and if you are parking around the area clean up your car so nothing is left inside. As long as your using some minimal discretion the neighborhood’s historic charm will shine. Compared to an area like Crystal City which is mostly chain restaurants and drab building this location allows you to realize areas of the city most tourist miss out on enjoying.

Just two stops up the Yellow line is U street, home to many unique restaurants and bars and toward the end of U street is Meridian Hill Park, also known as Malcom X park. Logan circle is a nearby area with many restaurants and bars to chose from. Both P street and U street feel more like main streets than areas built for tourists. Downtown DC is a short Metro ride or long walk. All in all, these areas are always overlooked by tourist, but not by residents. So if you are looking for an different spin on DC check out this area.
