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

We were a party of three adults staying in Gatsby’s house whilst visiting friends currently living in Washington DC. The third floor rooms were beautifully presented private as we had the entire floor to ourselves and the rooms and bathroom had everything we needed and more. Loved the little chocolates left on the bedside table each evening. Marie was a... More

My partner booked this place so that we would have a few nights to ourselves to play tourist before heading back and being inundated with family. I have to admit that I was a bit skeptical at first, but quickly turned into a firm supporter. Marie welcomed us like we were family and hd that perfect mixture of being interested... More

We had a great time at Gatsby's House. Marie is very generous and accomodating. The third floor room is beautifully furnished, private, and well-stocked. The location is within walking distance to all Old Towne has to offer--waterfront, shops, restaurants. Marie's cooking is excellent both in variety and quantity. It very much adds to the value of the place. We would... More
