We stayed for 3 nights at this lovely bed and breakfast. The location is close to the Metro Station so all the sites are easily accessible. The property is well maintained and comfortable. The breakfast was amazing everyday... And the sheets are so soft. They felt great after walking all day! I will definitely stay there again if I get... More

My husband and I just returned home from our weekend stay at this lovely bed-and-breakfast. We chose Mt. Vernon Square B&B because of its proximity to our daughter, whom we were visiting in DC. What an excellent choice! Not only is the property gorgeous, but innkeeper Keith Byrd was such a gracious host, providing attention to every detail we could... More

This is my second time coming here for my birthday. Keith is a great host, we had a very nice breakfast, the cook even made gluten free pancakes, we meet a nice guest, and overall had a good time. We got bumped up to the best room with heated bathroom floors. There was difficulty with the hot water and our... More

The room was spacious and clean. Breakfast was delicious. The proprietor was friendly, professional, and very helpful. This was my first visit to DC and due to a last minute booking situation I happened upon this wonderful place. Less expensive than the hotels near the convention center yet still an easy walk.

We made MVS B&B our home base for a 2 1/2-day "stay"-cation in DC where most of our planned events were near the National Gallery of Art. Let me start with the (very strong) positives: the building is gracious, attractive, elegant, welcoming and comfortable (it shows all the signs of being well-loved and well-tended); the owner, Keith, is more than...

Between wonderful breakfasts, elegant and stately surroundings as the period home is in beautiful condition, spacious room with absolutely every amenity anticipated, we could not have asked for more. Exquisite retreat but still convenient to the activities of busy DC.

We loved our stay at this B&B! The owner was friendly, helpful, and prepared a wonderful breakfast for all of the guests. The building is beautiful and well kept. It's also located near several excellent restaurants. The only downside was the evening traffic noise, but it didn't bother us that much. We had the terrace room with a roof top... More
