Just had a very nice one-night stay at Gatsby's House. If we'd been staying longer, the Safeway across the street would have come in handy no doubt, but as it it was, we didn't need it with the fantastic Old Town dining a few blocks away and Marie's delicious breakfast. A very easy walk to all the Old Town attractions,... More

Marie is a delightful and knowledgeable hostess. The house is lovely and the room was very comfortable. The breakfast table was seasonally set and the breakfasts were a delight. The house is very convenient for walking into old Alexandria and the metro bus stops across the road. Would love to stay again...just adore alexandria!

I have had the privilege of staying here multiple times, for both business and pleasure. Gatsby's House Bed & Breakfast just can't be beat for comfort, convenience, and hospitality. The location is amazing for strolling into Old Town, and very convenient for getting in and out of D.C. Public transportation of many modes are right outside the door, or just... More

We consider ourselves very lucky to have come across available lodging with Marie at Gatsby's House. This was a last minute trip and we are used to staying at Bed and Breakfasts. Very little was available in the DC area and Marie only had two of the nights we needed; we are so glad she did. Gatsby's location is great!... More

I stayed at this quiet, charming bed and breakfast for a wedding. The room was clean and comfortable. It was very convenient to old town Alexandria's bars and restaurants-- we didn't need to drive at all. But the breakfasts were what really wowed me-- multiple courses, beautifully plated and with a variety of savory and sweet items at each meal.... More

Attractive, fresh and homey b&b a few blocks from King Street, the main thoroughfare of Old Town Alexandria. We loved our blue daisy room. Not frumpy or kitschy like you get in many b&bs. Marie was extremely helpful and accommodating to my husband and me. We were planning our 5th anniversary trip around the childcare of our 2 year old.... More

Marie Buckley is the proprietress of this marvelous bed and breakfast. She went out of her way to help us find what we were looking for, and kindly adjusted her delicious breakfasts to match our dietary restrictions. When the temperature became unexpectedly cool for August, she took the extra time to open all of the windows, and then to close... More
