Charm and warmth - a lovely home. Dorothy helped to make our stay in Alexandria so very memorable. This classic, antique house is in the midst of everything happening downtown. Breakfast was more than adequate and sustained us through our walking tours - a perfect home away from home!

The 1816 Peake-Fairfax House is perfectly located in historic Alexandria, within easy walking distance of the river front, King Street, Old Town and the area's many charming old homes. Dorothy and Chet have done a meticulous job of restoration, utilizing much of the... More

We wanted to stay within walking distance of King Street and all the wonderful things to see in Old Town Alexandria and this was a perfect location. The house is historic in itself and the hosts, Dorothy and Chet, are lovely, well traveled, thoughtful people that make you feel at home. The continental breakfast had everything you could want including... More

We had a great stay at this fabulous home of Dorothy and Chet. Quintessential Southern charm and graciousness. Wonderful setting, breakfast and hospitality. Truly lovely. Although billed as a bed and breakfast, we felt more like house guests. Highly recommend

My husband and I stayed here in 2012. We absolutly loved it! It is a beautiful house, with a colonial syle and big comfortable rooms. We felt at home! The owners are also very friendly and helped us get around in Alexandria. Highly recommended!

Following an intense (9 cities, 42 buildings in 3 weeks) architectural tour of the US, I met my wife in New York for a more leisurely look at Philadelphia, Washington DC and Charlottesville, before returning to New Zealand. A NZ friend who lives in Virginia suggested the Peake-Fairfax House - a relief as I had struggled to find a suitable... More

My husband had a conference across the river and we didn't want to stay in the hotel of the conference so we chose Peake-Fairfax House based on the previous reviews. It is a wonderful house, full of period pieces and art. The breakfast was wonderful: variety of cold cereals, yogurt with fresh berries, hard boiled eggs, variety of breads and... More

Dorothy and Chet could not have been more hospitable.... More
