How do I get to my B & B?

The exact address for the Bed and Breakfast rental you choose will be provided with your confirmation from Bed & Breakfast DC.  Most of the homes in our system are private residences, therefore for the comfort of the owners as well as the comfort of guests, they do not publish their exact address, it is provided with a confirmed reservation.

Please be sure to take your confirmation and driving directions with you.  We will provide you with driving directions that will take you from the major highways outside the city to the front door of the property.  Your hosts will direct you to reserved parking, usually right behind the property.
