We had the pleasure of spending our last night in Virginia here. It was everything we expected and more. Marie is a gracious and warm hostess and her home is lovely and welcoming. Our room and bathroom was exceptionally clean with lots of high end amenities. The bed was extremely comfortable and the coverings warm, cozy, and fluffy. After returning... More

We spent 4 nights at the Gatsby House while visiting our daughter in the area. Marie is a wonderful host, accommodating our arrival and departure times, giving tourist advice when needed and privacy when needed. Her 3-course breakfasts are a wonderful and unique experience! Every day was different, including the china and linens! A little surprise every morning! And, finally,... More

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

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
