Welcome to Cloisters West. Our tree-lined community, situated in the northwest corner of historic Georgetown, is comprised of one hundred and nine federal-style townhouses built between 1985 and 1988. We are joined on the east by the twenty-nine-townhouse community called The Cloisters of Georgetown.  Although the two communities are separate entities, we are known collectively as The Cloisters.

A private lane, Winfield Lane, runs through Cloisters West and all our homes, except those facing Reservoir Road, have a Winfield Lane address. Access to our community is from 37th Street and Reservoir Road, NW or via 35th Street NW where Winfield Lane T-intersects with 35th Street just south of Reservoir Road. The entrance at 36th Street and Reservoir Road is closed. It is only opened for emergency vehicles. Georgetown University is to our west, and Georgetown Visitation Preparatory is to our south. 

Our community is incorporated as a homeowners association. We share roadways and certain landscaped areas in common. Our official name is the Cloisters West Homeowners Association (CWHOA). We have a governing board of five members elected from among the homeowners. Our property management company, Gates Hudson Community Management, assists the board.

CWHOA Safety Initiative
Posted on Sep 5th, 2023
The Board recognizes that personal safety is a very high priority for all CW residents.  Per the Washington DC Metropolitan Police Department, one of the best crime deterrents is to have your front door, rear entry doors and alley lights illuminated from sunset to sunrise 7 days per week.  We believe that good lighting in our streets and alleys is a critical component of safety in our community.
Currently, many CW residents leave their outdoor lights on overnight, but many do not.  As a result, there are some areas, especially in the alleys, where the lighting is poor and may represent a safety hazard.
We recommend that all homeowners install LED Dusk to Dawn light bulbs in their outdoor lights, including their front door, patio and garage light fixtures. If each light is left on, these bulbs automatically turn on in the evening and turn off in the morning, even when you are out of town.
These LED Dusk to Dawn bulbs are readily available at Home Depot, Lowes and Amazon, are inexpensive and use very little power.
If a significant number of CW residents switch to using the bulbs, we believe that the overall lighting in our community will be improved.
We ask all homeowners to consider supporting this initiative and make the change.
