          10th & Otis Place NW

The Home

The Otis Place Bed and Breakfast is located in the newly gentrified Columbia Heights Historic District, in Northwest Washington DC.  This Victorian townhouse was built in 1910, completely renovated in 2002/2003 and features original woodwork, hardwood floors, antique lighting fixtures and working fireplaces.  The first floor living room includes comfortable sofa and chairs, working fireplace and front bay window with larger windows allowing a flood of natural light.  Guests are welcome to relax, read and enjoy the fireplace.  The dining room features a decorative fireplace and a beautiful antique chandelier under a round dining table.  The gourmet kitchen features granite counter tops and tin ceilings.  Original artwork is located throughout the home.  In warmer weather, guests are encouraged to enjoy the screened porch located just off the kitchen at the rear of the house.  

Guests have their choice of two guests rooms located on the 2nd floor, both featuring a Queen size bed and private bath, the Blue Room or the Mauve Room.

This private home B & B is located in the newly revived Columbia Heights Historic district.  Guests enjoy easy access to 2 metro stations within walking distance from the house.  The Georgia Avenue/Petworth station is ¼ mile from the home and the Columbia Heights station is ½ mile.  Both stations board the Green and Yellow lines, with direct rides to the Washington Convention Center, China Town, the National Mall and Smithsonian Museums.  Enjoy D.C. USA, a new development of shopping and dining along 14th street featuring local shops and restaurants, along with larger chains such as Best Buy, Target, Ruby Tuesday’s, Starbucks, Applebee’s and Subway.


Master of feline relations, Bo is sure to greet you.  Typical of any cat, he may grace you with his presence, or he may not.  He is known by the children in the neighborhood as he spends most afternoons in the living room front window soaking in the sun and watching the kids returning from school.  He is sure to try and convince you he is allowed to go out and play but he is limited to the screened-in porch for his outdoor excursions.  For those guests with pet allergies, this may not be the best accommodation for you.
