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 Eastern Market

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

Great location!

We loved the location of this apartment on Capitol Hill near the Eastern Market. The towels were soft and thick and beds were comfy. Meg was very nice to us. We had an awesome time in DC!

Great location; Amazing Host

  • 5 of 5

Meg was so kind and provided more than we needed. There are many books and games including fun activities for our little ones. The location is great we walked to Trader Joe’s, the metro, bakeries and many restaurants. She even provided an umbrella stroller and portable crib. We enjoyed ourselves and would not hesitate to stay again if we return to DC.
