The Peake-Fairfax House sounded like just what we were looking for when we visited Washington DC in June, and we weren't disappointed. The location is perfect: right in the heart of Old Town Alexandria and an easy walk and Metro ride to the city. Dorothy and Chet couldn't have been more hospitable, and we very much appreciated their suggestions for... More

If you have never been to Washington the the Peake-Fairfax House is an excellent base. Your hosts discuss your plans with you and make very informative suggestions about sights, pace and restaurants. Being so close to Kings Street in Alexandria means that your evenings can be spent at interesting restaurants an easy walk away (Okay, I did some shopping too.).... More

Peake-Fairfax House was perfect for our mini vacation in Old Town Alexandria. The Nagles are wonderful hosts and we thoroughly enjoyed our talks with them. We purchased one of Chet's books and can't wait to read it. We were treated as part of the family (and maybe we are!). It was extraordinary to find a connection with not only a... More

Posting this review is like sharing the name of my favourite two-table restaurant: I'm afraid I'll never get reservations again! Peake-Fairfax House is a gem of a B & B and the Nagles are gracious and engaging hosts. We came to explore the sights of Washington, but were charmed by lively Old Town Alexandria and the Nagles’ elegantly restored home.... More

The Peake-Fairfax House Bed&Breakfast would always be my first choice when visiting the DC area in the future!!! The Nagle's are great hosts and their place feels like home. Chet has so many wonderful stories to tell and I can't wait to read his books. Dorothy has decorated her home with so many fascinating pieces of art that I could... More

The Peake-Fairfax House was the perfect accommodation for my recent trip to DC with my wife, my twin brother and his wife to celebrate our 60th Birthday. The hospitality shown to us by the Nagle family was top notch. The accommodations were warm, friendly and home-like. We were treated like members of the family and/or old long lost friends. The...

I was attending an architectural convention. My wife is from Virginia came with me. We found the Peake-Fairfax House the perfect location for each of us. I could catch the Metro for downtown DC and she could explore Old Town Alexandria. The location met those goals. But the experience exceeded them. The house was just great. According to the Nagles,... More

If you have an appreciation for homes from the early 1800’s Federal period, then you will find the Peake-Fairfax house to be something very special and with great character. It is larger than you might expect, nicely restored and beautifully appointed. Dorothy Nagle had been an art dealer so you will find much to enjoy including a large 17th century... More

It all began when we decided to spend Christmas back in the US in a "nice" place, not in some routine hotel. We found Peake-Fairfax B&B on the internet and began corresponding. Our first pleasant surprise was that they would take us into their family home for two-plus weeks right through the holidays. But as soon as we arived we... More

Stayed for a week and we had a wonderful time. Location was perfect, right in the heart of Old Town Alexandria, and within walking distance to both a free trolley and the train. The house is a restored colonial that is decorated beautifully. The owners Dot and Chet were the perfect hosts, charming and accommodating. We felt welcome in their... More
