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 stayed at the Gatsby House for 3 nights and was treated to the most amazing place to stay. The location is perfect for visiting Washington and a short walk to the charming Old Town. The accommodation was exquisite we slept in a tastefully decorated room very private with a comfy bed and quality bedding overlooking a delightful garden. Marie... 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

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
