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

I stayed at this B&B for ten nights and was able to walk almost everywhere. It's an easy walk to the Capitol, buses, subway and Union Station, yet in a well lit residential neighborhood where I never felt nervous though I am a senior traveling alone. Mary Jo is a sweetheart and very helpful with her knowledge of the DC... More

So close to everything, 15 minutes walking distance to all the landmarks. Easy to get on the bus to tour the city. Thanks Mary Jo , highly recommend... More

We arrived from England (UK) late afternoon and were given a very warm welcome by Mary-Jo (owner) into her excellent B & B accommodation. I cannot praise it enough. The two adjoining rooms (bedroom and sitting-room) are clean, comfortable, quiet and well furnished. The private bathroom is well appointed with plenty of hot water. The situation was perfect for us... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The home is close to the Metro for ease of travel to neighboring cities and local sites. The Internet worked immediately. The private living areas were just right for the 2 of us to work, rest and plan our outings. The furnishings are comfortable and we slept with very well. We look forward to our... More
