  • The House

    Trip Advisor’s #1 Bed & Breakfast in Washington DC and Fodor’s Choice in Dupont Circle!

    Built speculatively in 1902, this beautiful Washington DC inn was originally a grand private home. It has a beautiful entry hall, spacious rooms, high ceilings, ornate decorative plaster and wood moldings, a grand staircase and wonderful landings with pillars, arches and arched niches. During its long history, this elegant B&B in Washington DC has been a private home (approximately 20 years), a vestry for a local church (approximately 20 years), and the Embassy of China/Taiwan (approximately 55 years).

    When we purchase the house in 2003, it had been abandoned for almost 15 years, and had been open to the elements much of that time. The building was in extremely poor condition and had suffered both extensive water and fire damage. Over a 3 ½ year period, owner Raymond Saba and a team of dedicated craftsmen lovingly restored the house to its former beauty, going to extraordinary lengths to find, replicate and finally re-sculpt and mold some of the original decorative elements.
  • Breakfast

    Breakfast is an important part of your stay at this superb B&B in DC.

Our signature dish is our delicious fresh fruit salad, which includes at least a dozen kinds of fruit every day. Breakfast is served from 7:30 - 9:30 AM Monday through Friday and 8:00 - 10:00 AM Saturday, Sunday and holidays.

  • Evening Reception

    Raymond loves to cook and he has built a wonderful new kitchen in the Guest House. Sometimes he gets inspired and prepares a full impromptu meal, but you can enjoy a choice of our favorite wines, micro-brews and light snacks every evening between 5:30 - 7:30 pm. A great way to wind down after a long day of meetings or seeing the sights! Feel to join us in living room and socialize or enjoy it in the privacy of your room before your big night out!
