    The only thing better than the ambiance of this charming B&B was the innkeeper, Joanna. Service was awesome, breakfast was delicious!! The interaction of the people at breakfast added charm not found at a traditional hotel.

    Thanks for your question. Our DC location does not have a gym or pool. Vida Fitness, a full gym, though no pool is .3 miles, just a few blocks from the house. Steve
