We were charmed by this B&B, located in the peaceful, historic Capitol Hill neighbourhood that is within walking distance of all the main sights as well as the vibrant Eastern Market and its surrounding restaurants and coffee shops. It's also got excellent public transport connections for sights further afield. After a long day of sight-seeing and museums it was a... More

Could not have asked for more! Bright, spacious, comfortable, clean, private, secure, great Capitol Hill location with walking distance to National Mall, Eastern Market, Union Station. Our gracious hostess, Mary Jo, provided us with all the comfort of a home away from home. As a former educator, she was able to enrich our DC experience with her depth of knowledge... More

This B&B has a bedroom and sitting room which makes it extra nice. The owner did a great job of making us feel comfortable. We would definitely stay here again!

Staying in independence house is being part of Washington history. Mary Jo knows a lot of her US history and was a delight to... More

Mary Jo is a gracious hostess. Her home is welcoming, comfortable and spotless! The set up is more than generous. Our private bath was larger and brighter than provided at most bed and breakfasts. We had our own sitting/tv/computer room in addition to our spacious bedroom. The bed was very comfortable!!! This is a great location. We felt safe in... More

As you drive east on Independence Avenue, be aware that it makes a left turn shortly before approaching the 500 block. 504 is the address of Independence House. The hostess, Mary Jo, obtained a parking permit for our car right on the street in front of her house. She is a gracious, intelligent, helpful and interesting person with a good... More
