“A total delight!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

We are planning to make a point of going back to DC soon JUST to enjoy this lovely B&B right in the heart of Washington. The hosts and the accommodations could not be better. The nearness to Union Station, subways, and museums a big plus. You can take the train in and not drive for your whole stay in DC. A truly relaxing vacation.

We arrived to the Apple Tree Inn and were met by Robyn and Simon who were extremely friendly and helpful. We found out that they only hire one room in their house out so you got very special service from them. Our room was on the top floor at the front of their house on a very nice but quiet street. The location of this place is really good and a very safe neighbourhood. The bathroom was nice and shower was great. They had lots of information which we found very helpful. We were given a menu each night for what we wanted for breakfast each morning and the choice was absolutely amazing, and to top it off it was the first place that did a really good hot chocolate it the USA! This place was one of my favourites during our stay in the USA where we stayed at about 5 different accommodations. Absolutely would recommend.

My wife and i recently stayed at the Apple Tree for a weekend in DC. I had see the ratings on the Inn before booking it and was very happy to find that it was exactly what the raters said. The room was very nice, the bed excellent and the breakfast as cooked by the host were very good. The location was within walking distance of the Capitol and Air and Space Museum which we visited. It also was within walking distance of 3 or 4 small local restaurants, two of which we also visited in the evening. The hosts have more tourist information than you can ever review so you don't need to take any with you. They also had our parking pass which is required for parking on the streets in that area.
All in all, an excellent place to stay.

This is a wonderful home graced with Spanish water dog Teddy and his buddy, feline Fred. I enjoyed a lovely 3rd floor room with bay window--see photo-that looks over Constitution Avenue. The room is lovely and clean and indeed was quite relaxing. The proprietors are welcoming and quite helpful. With their encouragement I tried the Capital Bikeshare program nearby and biked all over the Mall. I had wonderful, made-to-order breakfasts and the whole key entry thing is simplified for the traveler's benefit.
I would stay here again without hesitation.

Room Tip: I used a map and thought for a while where I would be spending my time before I selected my spot. Tr...

We stayed for 3 nights, departing Sunday 14th October. It is just a great place, great position, only a few minutes to public transport or you can walk to Capitol Hill, a corner store, pub, restaurants, takeaway food only a few mins away. Simon looked after us very well cooked delicious breakfasts and the house is very cosy, roomy , you feel very comfortable,the bed, bathroom all perfect, more like visiting good friends who have a nice house. We really enjoyed Washington DC and recommend to stay a minimum of 5 nights to really enjoy the various parts of the city. There is a lot to see and enjoy and more relaxing when you are in a nice local quiet street.

Room Tip: There is just one room and it is great.

Having stayed at the "Apple Tree Inn" recently I can strongly recommend it to anybody looking for affordable and yet very comfortable accommodation in Washington D.C. The hosts do their best to make you truly feel at home in their beautiful house in a friendly and leafy neighbourhood. Breakfast was excellent, the rooms tidy and clean, informations helpful and accurate. The attractive Eastern Market is but fifteen minutes away and the perfect spot to experience every day life scenes in D.C. There are lots of restaurants, bars and cafés to choose from. If you are into art, the museums on the mall are in walking distance or can be reached by metro. Should you travel to Washington by train, the "Apple Tree Inn" is ideally located for you. Union Station is just a few blocks away.

Over the years we have stayed at a few dozen B&B's and of those we would rate
Apple Tree Inn among the top two or three. The accommodations, location, and detail attentive hosts made for a great week. Friendly foot warmer Teddy and elegant aloof Freddy were added attractions.

We'll be recommending Apple Tree Inn to friends planning a DC visit.
