I was just about to post a simple positive review of Peake-Fairfax House and then, upon seeing what was written below by DUHCAR, felt obliged to rewrite it as a riposte to his gobbledigook. He and his wife are clearly the sort of malcontents who find fault with everything but the source or their angst (themselves), and one wonders how... More

We like to stay in B&B's when we travel if conditions are met -- location, good breakfast, nice furnishings, nice bathroom, etc. I chose this place based on past reviews. However, there are some severe shortcomings. The place is just too noisy. It is under the flight path from Washington National airport, so the flights start at 5:30am and go... More

Dorothy and Chet Nagle were the most gracious hosts in old town Alexandria. Not only was it a privelege to stay in their beautiful period house very conveniently situated in the Old town, but they were able to offer excellent and practical advice about the region, transportation and restaurants. A highlight was an evening listening to Chet's stories over a... More

My husband and I stayed in the King Palladian Suite. Beautiful furnishings and wonderfully comfortable. Love the location--can look out the window at Old Town Alexandria and walk easily to shops and restaurants. Yet, not noisy. The other ideal part of this place are the owners--a lovely couple who set up breakfast and then steal away for guests to dine... More

Chet and Dorothy have a beautiful home and make you feel like family. They are wonderful hosts and go out of their way to make your trip a great experience. The location of the house couldn't be any better as it's centrally located in Old Town Alexadria which is a really nice place to stay. Easy access to everything by... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The location is amazing! Park your car there and spend the day walking in town. The hosts have such an amazing background. Enjoyed hearing about their life. Wonderful couple! The history of the home and their art collection is beautiful!

This is truly a hidden gem in the best location possible. Beautiful home and wonderful and interesting innkeepers. This is a stay you will not regret and will look forward to returning to. Selfishly would not like everyone to know about it since it only has a few rooms and therefore "books up" easily. Don't wait if you are looking... More

I've stayed at the Peake-Fairfax house twice for a month at a time. This place is comfortable, historical, in a wonderfully convenient location and the owners are special people you will want to know.

We cannot even begin to say how much we enjoyed our stay at this delightfully restored home in the heart of Alexandria Old Town. The location couldn't have been better for exploring all that the area had to offer. Our room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The breakfasts in the lovely dining room were just perfect to start the day... More
