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

We began our 6 week stay in the USA in this wonderful home. Not just a B&B, but you are in Dorothy & Chet's HOME and is it ever beautiful! Painstakingly restored and artfully decorated in period glory, it is a real privilege to spend a week here --which is what we did. Stayed in a beautiful bedroom on an... More

We prefer stating in Bed and Breakfasts whenever possible and the PeakeFairfax home was an outstanding choice. Dot and Chet are wonderful and interesting hosts. The home contains numerous significant pieces of art, rugs and furniture. Our third floor suite was elegant and clean. We hope to return next year. Recommended.

Peak-Fairfax House Bed and Breakfast is wonderful! Gorgeous Federal home of generous proportions, full of period antiques and much charm. Location is central in Old Town. Dorothy and Chet are fun, attentive innkeepers who provide a great breakfast and insight into local restaurants and attractions. We look forward very much to future stays with them at Peak-Fairfax. John and Heloise.

Read no further if you are unable to climb three flights of stairs with liggage. For those who can two beautiful rooms await. We stayed in the smaller room with queen bed and bath outside the door. Excellent mattresses and good lighting for those of us that still read by lamp light. Very quiet for being in the center of... More
