My husband and I stayed at this B&B for four nights last week. It was a wonderful experience! Keith is the best host you will find anywhere. He strives to make one's visit outstanding. He works diligently, cooks very tasty breakfasts that guarantee skipping lunch, shares a wealth of information about the D.C. area, and brightens one's visit with his...

We had the good fortune to stay with Keith at the mt Vernon square bed and breakfast while visiting Washington dc. His place is beautifully decorated, the room was comfortable, the home made breakfast delicious. The location was convenient to the metro and bus line. I used the off street parking, worth it for ten dollars extra. We look forward...

The two best things about this B&B are its location (within walking distance of Metro, bus and major attractions) and its innkeeper, Keith. He's upbeat, charming, full of wonderful tips (like where to go during happy hour to get delectable seafood at half off), and has a great sense of humor. There is also on-site parking for $10/day, which is...

This is a great find in a city where accommodations are pricey! I stayed here for the first part of my trip which was personal and not a business expense. I much preferred the atmosphere here to the impersonal JW I was at, but you have to be good with the bed and breakfast style. Convenient location a few blocks...

The reviews of Mt. Vernon Square B and B were all so positive to be almost unbelievable but everything they all said was true. Getting there after a long day of driving and sightseeing, we were met with a relaxing glass of wine and instructions on where the nearest restaurants were to finish the evening. Their home is very lovely...

My stay at MVSBB was absolutely amazing! Lydia and Keith actually asked me what I loved for breakfast a few weeks before I arrived, and then it was prepared perfectly! BTW, it was one of my Southern favorites - pork chops and grits. All of the meals were outstanding, and the best part was just chatting with Lydia and Keith....

My family and I had a truly enjoyable stay at MVSBB. Keith and Lydia were the perfect hosts and made us feel entirely welcome. We stayed in the Terrace room, which worked well for three people. The room was artistically decorated in a very classy and tasteful manner. Breakfasts were amazing - Keith and Lydia worked their magic every morning...

I had a wonderful two-night stay at the Mt. Vernon Square Bed and Breakfast. My entire experience there was wonderful.
