Aaron Shipman House at Logan Circle NW

Taking a Break

In September of 2013, Charles and I celebrated 30 years of operating the Aaron Shipman House. It has been a grand adventure; welcoming guests into our home, and a highlight of our lives. Our time with this wonderful house and running a B&B has enriched us with countless great experiences. It is however with a heavy heart, we have decided to take an extended break to enjoy some long vacations, and travel to catch up with some new additions to our family. We have made the decision to close the main part of the B&B at least until July of 2014. We will have the self catered apartment available until the end of January. We will miss all of our returning guests, and undoubtedly meeting some great new ones, but it is time to take some time for ourselves. We have great trust the folks at BedandBreakfastDC will be able to offer alternatives from the many other Bed and Breakfasts here in Washington under their care.

Thank you,

Charles and Jackie


Update 7/2014. The home is currently under agreement to be sold. It is unlikely we will be re-opening as a Bed and Breakfast. We are happily enjoying retirement and the next adventure in our lives.

Thanks again for a great chapter in our lives.
