Georgetown

Georgetown DC Vacation Rentals

The Georgetown neighborhood has an indefinable, old-meets-new charm in an area just as famous for its historic cobblestone streets as it is for its upscale shopping. Originally settled during the reign of King George on what had been an Indian village, Georgetown was a final destination for oceangoing ships on the Potomac River and a onetime tobacco trading post. A thriving colonial community soon rose up with extensive gardens and stately mansions overlooking the warehouses and busy port below. Thanks to careful city planning, the area still retains its historic charm and grandeur. Many of the stately mansions and their gardens, some of which belonged to families of the nation’s founding fathers, are open to the public. Blocks of cozy homes built for the working class are now charming treasure boxes where neighbors vie for top honors in the spring garden plot competition - Our Georgetown DC Vacation rentals among them! In addition to being the best neighborhood in the city for walking tours, the Georgetown neighborhood also offers walking trails in historic Oak Hill Cemetery, Montrose Park, and Dumbarton Oaks Gardens. Georgetown has two commercial streets, M Street and Wisconsin Avenue, which offer plenty to do near our Georgetown vacation rentals.
