We really enjoyed our stay with Keith and Lydia! Warmly welcomed, and thoughtfully advised on everything from where to grab a bite to safety, we probably most enjoyed our Saturday morning breakfast with our fellow guests. It turned out that every single one of us were in town for the same event: the Rally to Restore Sanity! And we universally... More

Keith & Lydia were the ultimate bed & breakfast hosts. Every breakfast was a five star affair. Keith & Lydia's help in transportation and tours made our stay much easier. They are great conversationalists. Mt. Vernon Bed & Breakfast is a beautifully restored brownstone with elegant rooms and comfortable beds. We were walking distance to buses, the metro subway and...

We spent two nights here and thought it was great. Lydia and Keith are amazing hosts. The home itself is beautifully decorated. We stayed in the copper room and it was very comfortable. There was even a terrace to get some fresh air and views. A small fridge in the room allowed to store some drinks etc. Lydia is gourmet... More

They went to great lengths to make us feel comfortable with fantastic breakfasts (asking us ahead of our stay what our preferences are); our room being comfortable; providing great suggestions to visiting DC and even helping us arrange for an evening tour on the day we arrived; ensuring that we had daily...

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Mt Vernon Square B&B in July and we can't speak highly enough of this lovely, charming place. The house is stunning and the room we stayed in was beautifully decorated and very comfortable - we immediately felt very at home. Our room even had an enormous roof terrace attached which was fantastic for... More

My brother recommended this place - it came out just the right choice. Conveniently located in the DC downtown, it provides you with a great accomodation for very decent money, considering quality of a room you get in exchange. We stayed in the Cleopatra room and really enjoyed it. The size was great, wi-fi internet was speedy and the bath... More
