My daughter and I just visited D.C. for an event, and stayed at Mary Jo's Independence House B&B. We had a wonderful experience. Mary Jo was very informative about places to eat, safety, and accommodating, as we wanted to visit a Museum before our departure and we had to leave our suitcase there later than check out time. The house... More

I stayed at Independence House from 31 March - 3 April, and I couldn't have felt more comfortable and at home. Mary Jo is a perfect a delightful hostess. She gave me excellent directions, met me when I arrived, provided an excellent "continental" breakfast (which was just right for my needs), and was very pleasant to talk with. The room... More

If you are looking for an excellent B and B on Capitol Hill, this is the place. Close to Pennsylvania, Eastern Market and the Eastern Market Metro we found this B and B to be everything we were looking for. Located on a quiet street not far from all the above mentioned sights, we were very happy with the service... More

I stayed at Independence House B and B for three nights in early May. Mary Jo was very welcoming and couldn't have been more accommodating to my schedule and needs. The location is wonderful--on a very quiet street in a charming neighborhood. The bedroom and "sitting" room are spacious and very comfortable. The Metro is about 3 blocks away, and... More

Mary Jo went above and beyond to make our stay in Washington, DC a memorable trip! Everything was very clean and the continental breakfast was great. We highly recommend Independence House. It's a close walk to the Metro, Capitol Hill and Eastern Market.

My wife and I have stayed at Mary-Jo's place numerous times. It is a perfect location and more than just a simple bed-and-breakfast. The home has a wonderful atmosphere, is spacious along with the sitting room and really has anything you need for a pleasant stay. Mary-Jo is very knowledgeable about the area and can give you advice on what... More

I booked Independence House because of its location to the Mall, and because it looked to be a private and quiet place to celebrate our anniversary. We stayed four nights and had a wonderful time. Mary Jo was not only a very gracious host, but also an interesting person with all kinds of information and stories. The accommodations were excellent,... More
