Ledroit Park Renaissance Bed and Breakfast is located in Historic Ledroit Park. Ledroit Park is a historic district in central Washington, DC. This neighborhood is littered with old Victorian mansions and turn of the century homes.
Once a suburb of Washington, DC, these were the homes of the first educated and professional Black Americans. Over the centuries, the homes transitioned to a Mecca for Black American entertainers. When you walk the streets of Ledroit Park, you walk in the footsteps of the first judges, architects, doctors, lawyers, civil rights leaders, and soul singers.
Across the street is the home of one of the first educators and college for Black American’s in the Washington, DC area. The Ledroit Park Renaissance Bed and Breakfast has a plaque dedicated to the family that lived in the home for over a hundred years, whose descendant was a local musician, educator, and organizer of the Ledroit Park Civic Association.
This family home was built in 1890. It is a Victorian row house decorated in the warmth and style of the era it was built but sits gracefully in the period it now resides in.
You will find flowers blooming in the spring, summer, and fall. Vegetables grow in the garden out back. A comfortable bed and a warm cup of coffee will be waiting for you in the morning, if you choose.
Sometimes on arrival the owner’s dog or cat will greet you at the door with the owners.
As you travel down our streets you will noticed the neighborhood is now a bustling area for professionals and families from all over the world.
