Charming Apartment in Fabulous Location
About Dawn Luepke
Tim & I (Dawn) purchased this house in April 2014. We have rented in the area since our wedding rehearsal dinner six years ago and just fell in love with the quaintness of Del Ray, the waterfront of historic Old Town, and the easy access to Washington, D.C. so we are thrilled to be homeowners here. Tim grew up on a dairy farm in Wisconsin and loves to offer his Midwestern hospitality. After college he was a tour guide here for international students so he knows a lot of what D.C. has to offer - so feel free to ask for places to visit and how to get there. Together, we opened a kids consignment boutique in Del Ray in 2010 and love being a part of this community. We live on the first floor of this two-unit home so are available for any of your needs.

Why Dawn Luepke chose Potomac West
We loved the convenient location, front porch, and the beautiful tree-lined street in a neighborhood filled with quaint bungalow style houses with front porches. As a one-car family, Tim bikes 1 mile to work at the US Trade & Patent Office (which has a small museum that is open to the public).
What makes this Apartment unique
Its a charming 1930's home complete with a glass front door, original moldings, door knobs, & old-school radiators. We are having a wood fence installed this spring to complete the charm.

Feels Like Home
We have stayed here many times and the experience is always great. Dawn and Tim are wonderful hosts, the apartment is well stocked and comfortable. Proximity to Old Town and the Metro make this a very convenient location.
The apartment had everything we wanted. It was clean, nicely decorated, had a very comfortable king sized bed, and a nice kitchen. It was a great place to come back to after a day of sightseeing. There were two nearby restaurants we really enjoyed- the Grape and Bean and Lena’s. Also the apartment was only a 4 block walk from the metro! We would definitely stay here again if we return!
VRBO DC area
This is a great place to stay while visiting the DC area! It is close to the Metro. Dawn was very helpful when we arrived with giving us information about the area, but occasionally slow to respond to our emails when preparing for our visit.
Lovely apartment in an outstanding location
My family and I had a lovely stay here in July/August 2019. The apartment is spacious, clean, and comfortable, the neighborhood is pleasant, and the location, with its proximity to the Metro and buses, can hardly be beat for visiting Alexandria and Washington, D.C. Our hosts were welcoming and accommodating.
home away from home
Beautifully decorated and comfortable, the best part was the friendly welcome from Dawn and husband Tim.
Great trip to Washington DC
Very comfortable place Just a short walk to the Metro and access to all the city has to offer. Very good hosts. Don’t forget to pet Lucky!
There are two restaurants & a small wine bar in walking distance - just two down the block. There is also a tennis court at end of the street if you want to bring your racket. And there is the Bike Share program with bike rentals if you'd like to get around that way. Of course the metro is only steps away too.
