The 1921 Gessford B&B offers a unique design with a bright open floor plan, styled architecture, and artful decor. Our loft-style bed and breakfast has two accommodations that sleep up to four guests, with our Queen Suite on the first floor and the Queen Loft on the third floor. The Queen Loft must be reserved with the Queen Suite – it cannot be booked separately.

The space

The Gessford B & B, a Loft Style bed and breakfast, offers cool and hip accommodations for 2-4 guests. The Queen Suite is located on the first floor and the Queen Loft, which can be rented along with the Queen Suite is located on the third floor. A light filled atrium leads to the second floor with 2 additional living rooms, the house kitchen where breakfast is served each morning and a 1/2 bath.

The Queen Suite is furnished with a queen size bed and consistent with the loft style living, the sleeping area is not a traditional bedroom. The space is tucked under the second floor living room, however does not have a formal door. Visual privacy is provided with a roll down shade. Nightstands, reading lamps, TV with cable, and even a treadmill complete the sleeping area. Note: while this is open living, the innkeepers office is located on the third floor. Guests enjoy the entire first floor to themselves.

The Queen Loft, located on the third floor, can be rented in addition to the Queen Suite. (sorry, this space cannot be reserved separately) The Queen Loft is furnished with a Queen size Futon, cable TV and a sitting area.

Registered guests may also enjoy the roof top deck during the warmer months. (We are unable to host parties or gatherings, only registered guests can be accommodated.)

Note: on the 21st of each month, the owner of the home hosts a jam session for a local group of musicians. The session generally starts in the early evening and continues to 10:00 or 11:00 p.m. Guests are welcome to stay and listen or even to join in if you play an instrument. During this jam session, the first floor (except the bedroom area) is used for the session.

I had a wonderful time at 21 Gessford Ct. I highly recommend it. The hosts are friendly and welcoming. It couldn't not have been any better.

The Gessford B&B is exactly how it's listing describes: unique, open loft-style, cool, nontraditional. I would also add artistic, homey and eclectic: you feel like you're staying at a friend's place, one who likes to read and has a great sense of decorative style! David & Carol were wonderful hosts, responsive to requests, and we enjoyed sitting down for breakfast with them each morning. The neighborhood is safe/quiet and a ~10-min walk to the Eastern Market metro. We didn't spend much time in the home because we were off exploring, but it was perfect for what we needed -- sleep. The bed was firm but still comfortable after a long day of walking/sightseeing. If you're looking for a luxurious yet bland hotel-type stay, then you should probably just book a hotel!

Quiet neighborhood. The space was exactly as was described. We had the added benefit of arriving on the 21st of the month, in which the hosts invite musicians to the B&B for a music jam session. We thoroughly enjoyed the evening.

Host David was terrific! My 16 year old grandaughter and I felt welcomed and very well taken care of. David and his neighbors have a musical jam on Sunday evenings (which he would have held elsewhere if we desired) made us feel a part of DC. An impromptu pasta and wine dinner by David afterwards was filled with engaging conversation. He also made terrific breakfasts including a Spanish frittata and fruit smoothie one morning and waffles and cantaloupe another.
