After travelling for 26 hours from New Zealand, and arriving in the early hours at Dulles airport ( to find my suitcase had not), it was a delight to be greeted by the warmth and comfort of Swann House. Our room was exceptionally comfortable, with a huge bed and soft pillows, ideal for battling jet lag. I can't really call... More

I arrived and was greeted in a very friendly manner, checked in and given the tour of a lovely property that was well maintained. I was shown to my room which was nicely appointed and definitely...

Booked a room here when my conference hotel was full. The stay was so nice, I may never stay in the conference hotel again. Nice big room, great food, excellent location. Next time I need to bring my wife!

We recently stayed 4 nights at the Swann House. Wonderful folks, very clean room, comfortable home, tasty breakfast, convenient location, and excellent service. The innkeepers and managers take very good care of you here; no need to look anywhere else while on your DC trip. Sincerely, Patsy & Phil, N. Calif. innkeepers and TA members

We arrived a little later than we had anticipated, and found a note on the front window telling us the information that we needed. We guessed the correct spot to park (a diagonal space to the side of the curved driveway) and went in. There was another note for us about our room and the facilities available to us. On... More

Our first visit to DC, our 13th wedding anniversary, and we enjoyed every moment of our stay at Swann House Inn. The gracious hospitality extended to us daily by all the staff here truly enhanced our visit. We stayed five nights in the comforts of Milano room and felt right at home in this tastefully appointed room. At the end... More

My wife and I went to Swann House for our honeymoon and everything there couldn't have been better. The photographs of the rooms on the site do not give them enough credit because they were better then pictured and my wife was taken away by it. The staff was friendly and helpful, it was peaceful and quiet every day, fantastic... More

Very pretty B&B with extremely helpful staff. We recently stayed for 5 nights in the Milano room. My husband stayed longer in the Jennifer Green room which had its own balcony. Both rooms were fabulous - nice bathrooms, comfortable beds, desk and chesterfield, windows that open. Spotlessly clean. The staff helped us figure out how to use the city shared... More

A wonderful setting for a reunion of high school friends after forty years. A long way up the stairs required some stamina but the room was perfect with space for sleeping and gathering around a nook to talk long into the night. Breakfast was tasty, especially the blueberry French toast. Our innkeeper, Isabel became a best friend with her interest... More
