This lovely guest house is attached to a single family home in the West End of Alexandria & offers 2 bedrooms, 1 full bath & a kitchen. Both bedrooms are very spacious, one features a loft & balcony. The closest Metro stations are Van Dorn & Pentagon City (not walkable), and you can access I-395 in less than 5 minutes. Tons of great ethnic restaurants in the immediate area. Only 15 min to downtown DC, monuments, Capitol Hill, SW Waterfront, Old Town Alexandria.
The Estate Guest House has lots of character and charm with its exposed wood beams and vaulted bedroom ceilings. It's around 925 square feet and kind of rustic with some fun quirks. Plenty of trees and nature give you a nice reprieve from the hustle of the city. So much nature... we have a male cardinal that fights his reflection almost every morning in the living room window. We named him "Red". You may also see deer and foxes too.
The Sunrise Suite with a full bed faces East and gets beautiful morning light, which can be enjoyed on the private balcony while sipping your tea or coffee. This bedroom also features a loft space accessible by a ladder that can be used for an additional sleeping area. The Master Suite offers a queen bed and desk space. There is a full bathroom on the second level. The full kitchen features a refrigerator, dishwasher, disposal, range and all of the necessary items to cook a simple meal. The two levels are connected by a spiral staircase.
There's even a little history too - This home was built in the 70's for a Colonel in the US Air Force. He was one of the first pilots to break the sound barrier and later in his career gave a 3-hour briefing to President Kennedy in the White House.

Weitere wichtige Infos
The DC metro area is very dense so we experience a heavy rush hour in the morning and evening. Please plan for your traveling accordingly. Morning rush hour leaving Northern VA on 395 into the city (& to National airport) runs from around 7:30-9am. Evening rush hour leaving DC (from the airport) heading into Northern VA is from around 3pm-6:30pm. If you are flying in or out during these times, it may be better to use the Van Dorn metro (Blue Line only 3 stops from National Airport) and Uber to/from the Guesthouse.
