We had a wonderful time celebrating our 5th anniversary with the Nagles!! The house is beautifully decorated and loaded with charm. Great location in Alexandria. Their hospitality was greatly appreciated--they even made our anniversary dinner reservation at a local French restaurant. The Nagles provided a delicious breakfast each day, and they were sure to provide food that was safe for... More

Dorothy and Chet Nagle's restored colonial home is a perfecf place to stay near WA, DC and to enjoy the surrounding countryside. Every room is beautifully appointed. The location just one block off King Street is close to all the main Old Town sites and access to the free trolley to Metro. Their suggestions for restaurants and places to see... More

My girlfriend and I stayed at Peake-Fairfax for 3 months during the summer while we worked in the DC area. There is not one bad thing to say about the place. The owner and family are extremely nice and accommodating. If you have any questions about the area, issues while visiting, or just want to have a conversation with someone,... More

Not a bad thing to say about the experience, the family, the home. Fantastic location. Delicious breakfast. Comfortable AND nice lodging - with some history to boot. And, the family is so much fun! Incredibly attentive and helpful from the first contact via email to the bagged breakfast that was left for us for our 4am departure. I cannot say... More

You cannot beat the location of the Peake-Fairfax House for enjoying Old Town Alexandria, and the sites in Washington, D.C. We especially enjoyed a Father's Day brunch with Dorothy and Chet and the other guests. Beautiful art on the walls, comfortable rooms, great location!

The Peake-Fairfax House is a very good choice for several reasons: the lodging is close to King Street and key historic, culinary, and waterfront attractions. We enjoyed having the town at our fingertips. The price is reasonable, and the accommodations are lovely. We appreciated the healthy breakfast choices and being invited for a glass of wine in the library with... More
