Convenient location, excellent breakfast

3.6 on October 03, 2015

The Mt. Vernon B&B is walking distance from the Metro and from a lively street lined with restaurant. The stroll to Union Station is a little longer. Our room was large, nicely furnished, and very clean. The house is in great condition and has a lot of character. The breakfast menu varied every day, it was excellent and very substantial. The owners are friendly, but quiet. It gave us a sense of privacy. I would go back if I went again to DC.

One of he Best!

We stayed three nights in early Sept; Innkeeper Keith is an amazing fellow and went out of his way to help us during an emergency and offered a better room at he same price. The Inn is charming and the breakfast fills you for the day and it is amazing. I encourage the off street parking which is very reasonable and the Metro is an easy walk, It's just a great place.

We wanted a quick little getaway and found th Mt. Vernon Square B&B online, such great reviews and great price point that we couldn't refuse. We were certainly not disappointed, the house was lovely and the owner Keith was very friendly. Breakfast each morning was beyond expectation in both its presentation and quality - so delicious. Make this a must on your next DC getaway!

We stayed over Labor Day weekend. A fantastic place. Great location. Just a few blocks from metro stop. Breakfast was amazing. Would highly recommend it. Do suggest getting the off street parking if you are driving in, as on street parking is very scarce.

Great B&B

This B&B was an unexpected great find. We will definitely stay here again. Our room was clean and comfortable. The breakfast in the morning was fabulous and more than I could eat. Just a few blocks from the subway.

Keith is a great host and makes you feel part of the family. Breakfast is served 'Family Style' one long table with all the other guests where you get exchange stotes and experiences. The food is by far the biggest & best breakfast I have ever had, location for DC is ideal.

The Perfect Getaway

5 on November 22, 2013

Recently I surprised my husband for his birthday with a 1 night getaway to DC and decided to try a Bed and Breakfast for the first time. the location was perfect and we were located minutes from restaurants and local attractions. Keith (owner, host & chef) was absolutely amazing and greeted us at the door. He showed us to our rooms and gave us the grand tour. We stayed in the Terrace Room on the top floor. It was absolutely beautiful. The decor was amazing and the floor to ceiling mirrors were beautiful. In the morning we came down to breakfast at 8:30am. Breakfast was a variety of delicious dishes served family style and the conversation between the guests and Keith stayed interesting throughout. I am so thrilled I chose to stay here and we will definitely be back.

Last Minute Wedding at Mt. Vernon Square B&B

4.2 on November 06, 2013

I had planned my wedding reception at this B&B several months in advance and I was to be married at city hall(8 blocks from B&B) on October 4th. Keith was more than accomodating for the reception and the house was a beautiful backdrop. The facilties were perfect for what I had planned and more than ample for the 15-20 guest I had invited. When the big day rolled around, the Federal Governent had shut down and I had to find somewhere else for the ring ceremony. I decided what better place than the Mt. Vernon B&B at 400 M Street NW. Keith couldn't of been more than nice and the entire day was spent at 400 M. My mother and sister couldn't have asked for better accomodations for their stay in DC. Class act B&B. Thanks Keith! Davd & Tony.

A haven during a scorching weekend

Keith was an attentive, humorous and kind host. I would not hesitate to stay here again. Douglas LeBlanc Chesterfield, Virginia
