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

Everything was absolutely perfect and you really did go above and beyond with all the goodies and the beautiful Christmas tree for the kids!

Perfect for our needs. ( 1 couple and 1 adult daughter) great location

  • 5 of 5

Really neat basement apartment. Comfy beds, quiet , Great location, about a 5 min walk to eastern market metro. 1 or 2 blocks to eastern market, trader Joe's. Many good restaurants near enough to walk to.

Meg was a very responsive owner. Left wine and cheese and crackers for our arrival. Unfortunately we had many flight delays and got in late and just grabbed a pizza for that evening and crashed. And since we came for the great restaurants didn't partake of the offerings but can see that it would be a great welcome.

Would definitely come back and recommend highly

Cute apartment in excellent Capitol Hill location.

Meg was very accommodating and gave us great tips on local restaurants in the area! Very cute and comfortable apartment in an excellent location on Capitol Hill. Capitol, Supreme Court, and Library of Congress all within walking distance! Metro is also a short walk away and used it during most of our stay. Loved it!
