This B & B is located in a quaint & quiet residential area, where you waken to birdsong. It is just minutes away from the beltway and a short walk from the Metro, offering easy access to the greater DC area. The rooms are clean, comfortable and aesthetically pleasing. Christina Blanchard, the proprietor, extends herself to address specific guest questions and prepares fabulous breakfasts. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and would happily return!

I have made Lansdowne Way my regular stay when in DC. Convenient to the metro line and located away from the urban pulse in a quiet, tree-lined neighborhood. Christina fixes a great spread and is a generous and helpful host. No reason to go anywhere else.

This bed and breakfast was wonderful and Christina was most gracious, helpful, and warm. She showed me how easy it would be to catch a bus (when it rained) and to have a lovely and easy walk to and from my meetings all week in downtown Silver Spring. She also sent me detailed directions on taking the Metro from the airport which saved me at least $70 each way if I had taken a cab. I also saved considerable money staying here instead of one of the hotels downtown. I must add that the bed was exceptionally comfortable, the towels were plush, the decor was unique and beautiful, and the breakfast the included fresh fruit from Christina's garden was a wonderful way to start each day. I also found it meaningful that Christina works for a non-profit that serves the needs of orphans in Africa. I would most definitely stay here again and I highly recommend this B & B.

My wife and I had the opportunity to stay at this wonderful bed and breakfast. We spent 5 nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. Our room was fantastic. The room was clean and comfortable. The breakfast was prompt and delicious. Christina was very warm and accommodating. Christina is a very nice person. My wife and I enjoyed her two cats. The cats were adorable. The neighborhood is safe and quiet. The walk to the Metro is about eight minutes and it is a very safe walk. You do not have to cross any major intersections. There is a pedestrian bridge that takes you directly to the Metro. We did not rent a car so we used the Metro on a daily basis. It took twenty minutes to get into central DC. Do not rent a car. The Metro is extremely efficient and cost effective. You can not stay at any quality hotel in DC that includes breakfast for what you will pay at Christina's place. It is a great place and we would stay there again.

The perfect base for two nights in March for two ladies to visit Wshington. The room was the entire upper floor with a very comfortable King mattress . The bathroom featured a deep tub and a nice variety of toiletry items. The tapestry and carpet decorations were from India and Africa. Christina was very accomodating of special diet requirements and helpful with directions in getting around the city. I recommend this Bed and Breakfast.
