Carriage House on Capitol Hill
Table Of Contents
The Carriage House is located in the Historic District of Capitol Hill. The home is not period construction, but rather a new home built in 2003 and 2004. The owners have integrated many architectural details that are in Washington homes built at the turn of the 20th century. Some of these details include 12' ceiling heights, the central circular staircase, salvaged carved doors, stained glass windows, carved paneling for accents and a mix of antique and new furniture. With the luxury of new construction, modern baths, central heating and air-conditioning, and modern appliances ensure that guests enjoy a comfortable stay.
The first floor of the home includes the living and dining areas as well as the eat-in kitchen. A central courtyard and a back yard provide guests with extensive outdoor space.

Your hosts are long-time residents of Washington, who together with their son, welcome visitors to their home. The family includes a cat named Mimi who also calls the house her home. Your hosts allow Mimi minimal access to the guest rooms, however those with allergies should consider whether this B&B is right for them.
