The SpaceFor the marvelous splendor of this area in Autumn, we're able to offer spectacular lodging/B&B type if you want same – in one of the most-historic homes in this very-historic area. And we're a glorious walk of less than 15 minutes to the East Falls Church Metro, which goes directly downtown. Falls Church – from 1697 – predates Washington by about a century, and even St Petersburg, Russia, by six years. This home was built in 1847 by a cousin of Robert E Lee, but enlarged – fully consistent with the original historic appearance/layout - in 1990. Now largest home in the best-educated city in the world.
This listing is for our historic East Garden Room. Full Queen-sized bed, pillowtop mattress, full windows, including the eastward look out over the wooded garden. Full WiFi, full B&B treatment if you wish same, and the amazing location of where we are. Walking distance – 2-3 blocks – of THIRTEEN different international restaurants, and some fabulous American ones as well. Walk to the East Falls Church Metro, on the Orange Line, directly into downtown. Easiest access to I-66 (also directly downtown, or out to the Virginia countryside. Also trivially near Tyson's Corner and Alexandria.
Home features almost unlimited, including brand-new 2-person far-infrared sauna.
Now, a bit more about us. We're totally INTERNATIONAL, and often welcome guests who are same. I served as an American Diplomat for three years in France, eight years in Russia, and eight years in China. Yes, I know Putin personally. Not an acquaintanceship about which to feel warm. Speak those languages plus German. Wife - who's actually in the Guinness Book of World Records - was born in Russia, first played basketball in St Petersburg, started and starred for Virginia Commonwealth University, then played professional women's basketball all over Europe. So she speaks Russian, English, Spanish, Italian, plus bits of others. Our from-outside-America guests now here include a Scholar from India and an American commercial specialist who works about have the time in Iraq. People say that we're "interesting." Well, at least experienced in all sorts of ways.
On your access to all of the glories of DC in June, and everything else in this marvelous area, we're a total transport delight. In a fully-wooded lot, inside the beltway, 0.7 miles (12 minutes walk for me) from East Falls Church Metro, which takes one straight down town in minutes. Immediate to I-66, Lee Highway (Rte 29), and Leesburg Pike (Rte 7, to both Tyson's Corner and Alexandria). About ten minutes by car to the the Smithsonian Museums. And we're walking distance from 13 international restaurants, plus some superb American ones. Best Blackened Grouper I've ever had – worldwide – in my life.
Again, we're totally WiFi, with huge amounts of free, safe parking, exercise facilities within easy walk, and loads of walking trails and parks. We have the largest, best kitchen you've ever seen. Really. Try us. We're one block from America's favorite Farmers' Market, So, let us know your needs. We may even be able to provide the full “Bed & Breakfast” treatment. I make the best in the world grits – no water, just milk and maybe sherry, garlic, ginger, Asian sesame oil with chilies, three kinds of cheeses, and smoked turkey bacon. Try them. Guest AccessGloriously Huge Kitchen, Free Tea, Coffee, Espresso, Fantastic South-Facing Deck, large Yard and Garden, All Sheets, Blankets, Paper Products Interaction with GuestsBasically, as much as they want. We certainly help with suggestions of what to see, where to eat, how to get places.... The NeighborhoodWe're phenomenally convenient to everything, including especially downtown, but we're wooded and quiet, with over a dozen INTERNATIONAL restaurants in trivial walking distance, and some great American ones as well. Getting AroundLess-than-fifteen-minute walk (0.7 mile, or 1.0 km) to East Falls Church Metro, on the Orange Line, which goes directly downtown Other Things to NoteI speak five languages - English, French, Russian, Chinese Mandarin, and some German. Wife has English, Russian, Spanish, and some Italian. So we often help guests understand "in their own languages."
