Travelers may choose this bed-and-breakfast for its appealing Dupont Circle/Adams Morgan location, its bathroom en suite guest rooms, and its reasonable rates that hold steady throughout the year. But it’s chef Kevin’s sumptuous breakfasts that seal the deal once they’re here. (Check out the inn’s Facebook page for photos of maple bourbon banana pancakes, eggs Florentine, and lemon ginger muffins, to name a few favorites.) If you must leave before breakfast is ready, the chef will send you off with a continental breakfast to-go option. The B&B satisfies on other essential levels, too. The 120-year-old townhouse is charmingly old-fashioned, sparely decorated in places, but well-maintained. Burnished paneled walls, old oak floors, and ornamental fireplaces are found throughout. The 12 guest rooms are scattered over four floors, and each holds an antique bed with thick mattress covered in soft white linens, as well as an English secretary desk. Room 403 on the top floor is the most spacious and the only room that includes a little sitting area. Rooms at the front, on the second and third floors, nestle inside a bowed window overlooking Columbia Road. Many of the house’s clientele come from around the world, says owner Lucia Rosan, who herself hails from Brazil. Note: The inn has no elevator, so is not a good choice for travelers with disabilities.
