About Us

Owners Steve & Michelle Bird would like to welcome you to the Birdhouse B&B! If we are out of town, innkeepers John & Linda will be there to serve you! 

Our historic Bed and Breakfast in Washington, DC offers hospitality at its finest. We live in a four-story home, built in 1884 and located in the charming and historic neighborhood of Ledroit Park. We offer six beautiful guest rooms and two off-site one-bedroom family apartments located in our neighborhood. The off-site apartments are  a quick walk from the B&B and guests are welcome to come back for breakfast. Each B&B room is uniquely decorated and  equipped with a Smart TV (Netflix) with strong wifi available throughout the house. 

We are conveniently located in a neighborhood close to Washington, DC’s main attractions and within walking distance to Howard Theater, the lively U Street District, 9:30 Club, and some of DC’s best restaurants. Our house is 0.4 miles (0.64 km) from the Shaw/Howard University metro station. We are one metro stop from the Convention Center, two stops from Chinatown, and three stops from the National Mall, which is home to DC’s iconic Smithsonian museums and monuments. You can also Uber downtown (approx. 10 minutes) or walk (approx. 30 minutes). Howard University is also a few blocks away and we are just over a mile to MedStar Washington Hospital Center, VA Medical Center, and Children's National Hospital. 

Whether you’re here for business or pleasure, our B&B is the perfect way to experience our Nation’s Capital. After a restful night’s sleep, wake up to the aroma of freshly brewed coffee and kick start your day with our delicious, American-style breakfast. Complimentary coffee and tea are also provided throughout the day. Come and stay with us to experience Washington, DC at its best!
