“Perfect DC Getaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014

We were so lucky to find this little gem. Karen was so welcoming and her home was so warm & inviting. The house was close enough to walk to the nearest bus stop and get you anywhere in DC. Also, if you really want to walk off some of the wonderful food you will be eating, the Metro is just shy of a mile walk away. We will definitely stay here again next time we are in DC. Thank you Karen for making us feel so welcome in your home.

We had a truly terrific time at the Stone Manor. The house is only a short walk away to a metro station on the red line, making it easy to travel into the city. It's in a very safe area, so walking at night isn't a problem. The host is so sweet and a fabulous cook. We would definitely come back!

By far the best aspect of this B&B is the host, Karen. We instantly warmed to her as she chatted about the fascinating path her life has taken, and she was incredibly accommodating considering we turned up with two bikes laden with luggage. Beyond Karen, the room was huge (we stayed in the green room) and the bed so comfortable that we were asleep in seconds. The location is great too. The area us super quiet, but moments from the metro and walking distance to endless restaurants. We walked back from the tidal basin over the course of an afternoon, fuelled by drinks in a couple of bars and dinner along the way, and barely noticed how far we had travelled. We couldn't recommend this B&B enough.

All five of my family members who stayed here felt very welcomed, and appreciated greatly the sincere and kind hospitality extended to us. It was a gift.
Also, the location is walking distance from all the basic stores needed in a pinch :-)

Stone Manor is a beautiful and spectacularly decorated home in a quiet, convenient section of Washington D.C. This was our second visit, and we wished we could have stayed longer. Our hostess, Karen went out of her way to meet our needs, We had wonderful discussions! Breakfast was great and again the hostess was very attuned to out wishes and tastes. The home and decor proved endlessly interesting to us with many photos, books and international objects. We can't wait to return and to stay for a longer visit.

My wife and I stayed for 2 nights in October 2013, in the blue room (queen bed, separate bath). The separate bath is beside the room, not shared -- you just have to go a couple of steps in the hallway between the bedroom and bathroom. While we agree with another review that a few aspects of the house could use some TLC (bathroom, old tube TVs), this is not of consequence -- we had no problems or complaints and we enjoyed our stay. The house is in an area of multi-million dollar homes, quiet and enjoyable for walking, not far from Connecticut Avenue (bus service) and in between a couple of subway stops so not far to walk for public transportation. We parked in Karen's driveway. Karen is a very interesting and accommodating hostess, and listening to some of her life experiences was eye-opening. Our biggest surprise was meeting deer on both of our evening walks! We would suggest putting a queen bed in the green room -- there's lots of space for it, and it would do away with what for many couples is only one choice of bedroom. We would stay at Stone Manor again, no hesitation.

We had a great stay here, beautiful home. Easy access by public transport to downtown Washington and walking distance to great restaurants. We had no car. Karen was a friendly informative interesting hostess the accommodation was clean, comfortable and private.

Room Tip: Did not see all rooms but very quiet tree lined street.
