Description

Enjoy our slice of Southern Charm in this Enchanting 1 bedroom apartment. Guests can experience a walking museum of craftsmanship that wonderfully juxtaposes the home's central location. Feel like you're relaxing on the range while a stone's throw from modern amenities and trendy industry in our Lone Star Lodge!

The Space
Our snug one bedroom apartment must be seen to be believed. Entirely hand crafted with the owner's skill (with an intentional aged aesthetic), and a passion for his home state; guests will experience a one of a kind apt full of character, design, and charm - about as cool as John Wayne!

For those looking for an unique housing experience wherein the lodging is considered an attraction in itself - we're the spot for you! Guests should be aware that our cozy, rustic, hand-crafted space is for those hoping to make their rental a memorable, distinctive experience. For those seeking for a modern, newly renovated space, we suggest guests check out our other rental options. 

The kitchen boasts "period flair", while including updated stainless steel appliances; guests can relax in the saloon-like space while still having all modern amenities at their fingertips.  The various wood tones create a warm space to enjoy a meal with your group, and the melding of modern and rustic creates in ideal space to unwind. The pièce de résistance is the cathedral like ceiling overseeing the kitchen; evocative of a Heavenly Southern Sky. Stained glass, stately brass, iron figurines, and an array of painted stars create a kaleidoscope of color and serenity. 

Western themed art leads guests from room to room, and the "Cowboy Modern" theme carries on throughout. Guests will find themselves nestled in a cozy, meticulously designed & maintained space, reminiscent of a Hans Christen Anderson fairytale.
Vintage decor is sprinkled throughout the space, and guests will easily forget they are in the Nation's Capitol, and not in a woodland cottage in the Lone Star State!

The tranquil bedroom is a cozy, rustic space perfect for resting your head after sight seeing. Decorated entirely with original, intricate woodwork (constructed from aged logs from a home in CA - includes a bedside light that appears as if a tree is growing inside the home!), guests will be transported to a dream-like state before even closing their eyes. 

We can sleep 3 adults or a family of four in our country cottage, by use of the full sized bed in the bedroom, and full sized bed in the kitchen/living space. 

The stairway is built with the same stone used on the outside of the National Museum of the American Indian at the National Mall. The wood for the steps was taken from a house built in the 1880's in historic Georgetown. The railroad spikes used to hold the wood flooring in place hail from the Lone Star State itself. Antique reclaimed wood is utilized throughout the space, and has even been fashioned into mirrored pocket doors for additional privacy (a design hearkening back to the days of Teddy Roosevelt). 

Interaction with Guests
We are always available for any questions or issues that may arise during your stay. 

Guest Access
Guests will have access to the entire second floor apartment, it is not shared.  

The Neighborhood
Just outside of your door lies the vibrant Capitol Hill neighborhood! United States Capitol, Library of Congress, Supreme Court of the United States, Congress Market and more are a short stroll from the residence, including the iconic Eastern Market (not to be missed)!

TONS of DC's most sought after restaurants line the streets - ranging from German, Mexican, French and American - picky eaters should have no issue finding favorites. The neighborhood comes alive at night! With an array of bars, clubs and restaurants, folks can experience the the neighborhood in a totally different light once the sun goes down!
The home is nestled on a quiet tree lined street; so escaping the hustle and bustle of the Corridor is a non-issue. 
We provide a welcome pack inside the home with our recommendations as well. 

Getting Around
We are located a 5 minute stroll from the brand new DC Streetcar (free for its first year) that runs down H all the way to Union Station - the epicenter of DC's action and hub of the major sights!

We are also one to three blocks away from several Capital Bikeshares and bus lines, including the X1, X2, X3, X9, and B2! There is plenty of free street parking and a ton of available taxis and Ubers nearby. If you feel like taking a stroll, Eastern Market, Union Market, Capitol Hill, the Capitol, and Union Station are all within walking distance.

The D6 or 96 Bus can take you directly to the Capitol Building in under 10 minutes!
