Fantastic Stay at MVSBB!!!

My girlfriend and I stayed at MVSBB last weekend for a quick get-away to the DC area. The location was excellent for seeing the typical DC sights, the accommodations were luxurious, and the breakfast was stellar! I cannot say enough good things about our host, Keith. He provided us with phenomenal service and even gave us some great life advice. His culinary skills were simply amazing. I should also note that he was a big help with parking, which is conveniently located on-site for the very fair price of $10. Thank you Keith! We will definitely be staying here again when we return to DC.

Wonderful place to stay

Beautiful B&B & very welcoming host

We stayed in the Copper room for 3 nights it was quite dimly lit however very comfortable & the bed very comfortable. The En suit bathroom was adequate but felt the decor was a little dated. All the communal areas were beautifully finished & all was very stylish & in keeping with the period of the age of the building. The location is great to get to all areas of the city & we had an added bonus of secured off road parking at an additional cost.(but had no need to use the car) Keith the host is very accommodating & really makes you feel very welcome & finally the breakfasts we to a Brit a little strange (having all sweet & savoury dished up together on a plate ) but that why I love to travel to experience what is odd to one person yet simply perfectly normal to others! Will definitely recommend

Great B&B

We had a wonderful stay at Mt. Vernon Square---The place is just beautiful ---it is definitely well cared for--- very comfortable atmosphere and rooms which was much appreciated since the weather was exceptionally cold during our visit to DC ---so coming back to 'hang-out' between appointments was a treat. Unfortunately our schedule prevented us from partaking breakfast but it smelled great. Keith was a great host and made sure we were taken care of---you will love your stay at Mt. Vernon Square---we will definitely come back

Awesome stay!

Convenient location, excellent breakfast

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!
