A Capitol Place is a privately entranced, completely renovated five-room apartment. It is the entire lower level of our renovated century old Victorian town house located in the historic district of Capitol Hill, in a well established and friendly neighborhood just off Lincoln Park. It is within easy walking distance of the US Capitol, Library of Congress, Supreme Court, Congressional Buildings, the Tourmobile Tourist stops, the Eastern Market and Union Station Metrorail (subway) stops and attractions, and it is one block from the City Bus lines. From the Capitol, it is about a ten to fifteen minutes walk to reach the Smithsonian Mall and its Museums. The apartmentís downtown neighborhood location, convenient to the monuments, memorials, and museums, as well as to government and business, is equally appealing to the tourist and to the business traveler.
A Capitol Place apartment, can be rented as a long term rental, when available. In addition, the Main Victorian House, also fully equipped, with its two separate bedroom suites and rooms of antiques and collections, can be rented as a long term rental, when available.
The historic neighborhood is home to Eastern Market, which is a landmark in itself and has been operating for over 100 years. There are second and third generation family operated open food stalls inside and on the weekends it has an outdoor flea and antique market, a farmers market, and an arts and crafts market. Capitol Hill with its town homes with flower filled front yards, and its tree-lined streets with interesting and unique shops and neighborhood cafť and restaurants, offers a friendly, small town flavor and atmosphere, yet it is right in the heart of downtown, Washington, DC. Your hosts, Mary and Jim Pellettieri, have lived on Capitol Hill and the surrounding area for twenty-five plus years, in between tours in Europe. They enjoy sharing their knowledge of the Capitol City and the Capitol Hill neighborhood with their guests.
The apartmentís private French door entrance leads into a sunny bay-fronted living room with dining room area. The apartment has a desk, a private telephone line with answering machine, and wireless Internet. The door from the sitting room leads to a private brick patio for our guests. There is a color cable TV and radios. The rooms are individually heated and air conditioned for year round personal comfort. For moments of relaxation after a busy day of business or tourist activities, there is a library of over ten shelves of books and magazines.
The apartmentís "sitting room", with its Belgian library bed and antique furniture, is a quiet place to rest and relax; yet it accommodates two twin beds. The apartmentís master bedroom has a queen-size bed. There is a full linen closet with abundant sheets, towels, pillows, and blankets and the bathroom is modern with a tub and a shower.
The apartmentís kitchen is fully equipped with china, crystal, cutlery, pots and pans, toaster, and electric coffee maker. It has a new full size stove, dishwasher, refrigerator with ice maker, and microwave. The refrigerator and pantry shelves are stocked with condiments, spices, coffee, tea, and all paper products are provided.
