About Meg Kelly

My grandparents immigrated from Ireland, bought a house on the Hill, and my family has been here ever since. My friends and I spent our summers running around the air-conditioned halls of Capitol and Smithsonians. My husband and I lived in NY and L.A. (he's an actor, I'm a scriptwriter) and moved back in 2005 to be near my parents. We've loved watching our kids grow up in this wonderful neighborhood. We are on-site to help make your stay a great one.

Meg Kelly purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Meg Kelly chose Washington DC

We wanted to be walking distance from my parents, near Eastern Market and one of the greatest second-hand bookstores, Capitol Hill Books. Grocery shopping at eastern Market, nearby Harris Teeter, and charming corner stores make this an easy neighborhood to live in. We also love using the indoor, public pool one block away, and walking our dogs in beautiful Lincoln Park. Our daughter loves rowing on the Potomac River. Kayaks and other boats are available to rent at Thompson's Boat House. My kids also love hitting a bucket of balls at Hain's Point public golf course. Bike share stations are all over the city, two within a few blocks of our house.

What makes this apartment unique

We love this house for a lot of reasons, historic charm, location, friendly neighbors, and, because its a corner house, the large, sunny rooms. The apartment is English basement, with two or more 3x3 windows in every room. We're around the corner from coffee shops, cafes, Eastern Market and, on weekends, a flea and farmer's market. The Metro, two blocks away, means the zoo, downtown, Chinatown, Reagan Airport, George Washington University and American University are all easily accessible and quick to reach.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you, Meg!

  • 5 of 5

Unfortunately, due to Hurricane Irma, we were not able to get our flight to D.C. Meg was kind enough to allow us to reschedule at a future date and we look forward to staying at her lovely apartment at that time. Thank you, Meg!

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Cute unit. It fit the 5 of us comfortably. Only a 10 minute walk to the capitol. There was also a bus stop in front of the house, city bike rentals and the metro were only a short walk. We loved the look and feel of the neighborhood. The kitchen seemed well stocked and the apartment was clean. The bathroom shower needs some attention...it was clean just old and leaks a little. The only thing we wish we had was a tv in the master bedroom. There is only one and it ended up being where the kids were sleeping. We would have changed rooms but the bed was quite high. All in all, a very nice place to stay.

Lovely apartment. Great location.

  • 5 of 5

The accommodations were perfect for myself, my teenager and college age son. The lovely apartment was clean, uniquely decorated, and had all the space and kitchenware that we needed. The host was quick to answer any of my questions. The apartment is an easy 20 minute walk to the Capital and 5 minutes away from a wonderful farmer's market. We all would definitely stay there again.
