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 Homeowner's 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.
