We loved our stay. Great location just 2 blocks from the water and 4 blocks from King St (shops and restaurants). From there you can take the free trolley which goes up to the King Street metro. Parking by the inn is free on the weekends. The homeowner was very accommodating was flexible about our arrival time and the breakfast... More

Our hostess and homeowner, Marie, was delightful! She was very flexible about our arrival time and very accommodating with our dietary requests. Breakfast was delicious! The house is charming, clean, warm and inviting and close to the many happenings on King Street. Will definitely stay here again when in the area. Thanks, Marie! Connie & Kent

Marie is so accomodating, truly the best hostess, she bends over backward to make your stay a most enjoyable one ... the breakfasts are excellent, the blue room is cozy, the house is in a great locattion ... and we are going back again...

We so enjoyed our stay with Marie at her beautiful and historic bed and breakfast! Our room and bathroom were clean and quiet and the bed very comfortable. Breakfasts were very delicious and she was so kind to accommodate our likes and dislikes. Great location, a short walk to shops and restaurants. The trolley to get to the metro is... More

We just got back from a lovely weekend in alexandria staying at Gatsbys house! It was important to us to be in a walkable location, feel "cozy" and have a budget-friendly stay. Marie (the proprietor) met all of that criteria. Her home is lovely and feels like your own oasis in the middle of town. We parked our car right... More

A small (two rooms) but very charming bed and breakfast. Within easy walking distance of old town Alexandria. Also a great location to explore DC, which is not car friendly. Easy metro trip into DC with a bus stop right across from the B & B that takes you to the metro station. Very nice acommodations, Marie, the innkeeper is... More

This is a lovely place to stay. Very convenient location. We stayed in the blue room and had a wonderful experience. Marie was a great hostess and had lots of information for us when we asked. It was like staying at a friend's home. The breakfasts were excellent and more food than we could possibly eat. The house is within... More

We stayed here for a weekend and had a great time. Perfect location in Old Town Alexandria with easy walking everywhere. Marie was the perfect innkeeper--friendly, offering plenty of little touches and graciousness, but she was not intrusive. We had a key and could come and go as we pleased. Basically it was like staying in the home of a... More

The Gatsby House was perfect for our first night away from our 2 year old. Marie was such a gracious host and made us feel so welcome. We stayed in the blue room and had the entire third floor to ourselves. We loved the accessibility to Old Town. The weather was rainy and less than ideal but the public transportation... More

Marie was a wonderful hostess, providing a clean, comfortable setting for my husband and me. Marie gave many wonderful suggestions for ways to enjoy the local area as well as attractions in the city of Washington, D.C. Her breakfasts were delicious and kept us satisfied through long days of sight-seeing. We especially enjoyed relaxing on her deck and enjoying her... More
