    This is a charming house nestled in a great DC neighborhood. It is surrounded by restaurants, just a quick walk to the train and a number of interesting attractions. Breakfasts were delicious and the innkeeper an excellent hostess.

    Thanks for your question. Our DC location does not have a gym or pool. Vida Fitness, a full gym, though no pool is .3 miles, just a few blocks from the house. Steve
