I love the American attitude -- we always look for creative ways to survive and prosper during difficult circumstances, economic or otherwise.
$6,500 for a four-day "Inaugural Rental" in Warrenton.
And then this:
"The sheer number of entrepreneurial tricksters that abound on Craiglist hoping to rip off inaugural visitors is shameful.Lance, is that you? :-)
If you've clicked on my ad among the throngs of other ridiculous listings and are in need of a place to stay that TRULY allows you to view the events without being stuck in traffic and/or forces you to shack up in a potentially life threatening neighborhood, you should contact me.
My 2 bedroom apartment is safe, comfortable and 1 block to the Capitol. It's on New Jersey And D SE. I have parking, room to sleep 6 comfortably, high speed internet and cable and plenty of historic character - something you won't find in a gawdy mcmansion in Annandale, Virginia, Darnestown, Maryland or Culpeper, VA (or some other such nonsense rental in a provincial, irrelevent cookie cutter community), the difference with my place is that you'll actually experience the inauguration in person rather than watch it on a big screen at an Appleby's on Route 211 in Warrenton, Virginia.
$1,000 a night or best offer (Jan 17-22 dates negotiable) - email for details and pictures."
