Our family of five recently stayed in the garden apartment at the Aaron Shipman House. While no breakfast is provided, a full kitchen is available and Safeway and Whole Foods are in walking distance. The luxury of cooking breakfast and dinner saved us a ton of money. Having laundry facilities on site meant that we didn't take home any dirty... More

I was staying alone in Washington for five days following a 2 week holiday with my family in Orlando, and I could not have chosen better accommodation. The house itself is beautiful, decorated with some of the most extraordinary pieces of furniture I have ever seen. The rooms themselves are modestly decorated, but with being in such a city, one...

Katy and Charles are perfect hostes. The room was very quiet and clean. Breakfast with a lot of warm dishes and a high level discussions. That's is the avantage of so many nationalities. We can highly recommended this address. Kind regards. Frits

We enjoyed our stay at the Aaron Shipman House B&B. The house is ideally located close to downtown Washington, Georgetown and the national mall. The house is decorated in historical style and so are the rooms. Rooms are well equiped and the garden and porch are the perfect relaxing hang out spot. The inn keepers are very friendly and ready...

My two friends and I were going to spend 2 nights. However, one of my friend's motorcycles broke down and we ended up only spending one night. There was never any mention of returning all or part of our money for the night not spent there. This didn't bother us so much although it would have been greatly appreciated as... More

It has been quite stressful to reply to this review. Despite giving us reasonably positive ratings, this guest makes some comments that quite honestly are hard not take very personally. This September celebrates our 30th year welcoming guests to our home. In all our years, we have enjoyed thousands of guests, many who have become long treasured friends. It is... More

My husband and I enjoyed a two night stay at the Aaron Shipman House in room #6. The home is beautifully restored and meticulously cared for. Our room was very comfortable and clean. We did not make use of the jacuzzi (the original reason we chose this room) due in part that it has some protrusions on the bottom of... More

We stayed at the Aaron Shipman for 10 nights when we arrived in DC from Australia. We were in the basement apartment, so were fully self contained with a completely equipped kitchen of our own, a small outdoor area and a bedroom that is separate to the living space. The accommodation was nice, comfortable and convenient and had everything that... More

We purchased two parking spaces; we parked one car and went to the theater with the second car. When we came home after the theater our second space was occupied. So we paid that space but still had to park on the street late at night.

Charles and Jackie are the best, clean, comfy and just all around lovely. The location is perfect and it really is all that you can ask for. I have stayed twice, once with my wife and once with my son and it is where I will be staying from now on when I go to DC.
