We stayed at Des Affiches during our wedding weekend, which was happening at nearby Glen Echo Park. The room was very comfortable and cozy, bathroom was bright and clean and well-stocked, and the hosts were welcoming. It should be noted that this b&b feels like staying in a home, albeit with the privacy given by a separate floor and the... More

Des Affiches is a beautiful, thoughtful aerie perched gently above a crowded street where the eclectic rules.There are superb touches everywhere, from the guest bath view, through the little porches on either side of the second floor. The Art Deco skylights and the front doors are truly impressive.... More

Well appointed with vintage wood carved detailing, this bed and breakfast will delight design connoisseurs. A central stair is a room itself; the home is decidedly one for entertaining. Porches and terraces give relaxing views of the wooded site and are a good way to start the day. The kitchen has an ideal catering kitchen layout and offers quiet repose.... More
