I stayed at Stafford House for two nights to visit my son who is a grad student at GMU. It is conveniently located in a safe residential neighborhood, within walking distance from the restaurants. Both nights, after having dinner at a nearby restaurant with my son, I walked back by myself. There is a pedestrian path on Chain Bridge Road,... More

Stayed one night while attending a small company Xmas dinner at the Auld Shebeen just down the road (highly recommended). We were in the Queen Room. The room was clean and comfortable, and even tho it was only a few yards off a busy street, the plantings on the edge of the property made it very quiet and relaxing. Donna... More

Stayed three nights in the King Suite. Amazing! A whole "floor" to yourself, with a giant private bath area that includes a spa/hottub AND a sauna!! We spent one whole day in the room just relaxing and enjoying the ambience and peaceful serenity of the surrounds! Donna is a wonderful, accommodating host, and her breakfasts are delicious, served in your... More

We stayed overnight for GMU Freshman Orientation for our son. The B&B is just 2 miles from the college. The room was elegantly and stylishly appointed, the bathroom had a great bath and shower and the breakfast delivered to our room at exactly at our requested time was delicious. This will be at the top of our list for future... More

Much by chance we found this hidden treasure to accommodate an overflow of family visitors. We booked both the suite and downstairs room and both were PERFECT for our guests. The property is very private, lovely, quiet and peaceful. Donna is the perfect hostess and makes scrumptious breakfasts. The rooms are very clean, luxurious, and far surpass any hotel anywhere....

My husband and I were going to Fairfax for two days as spectators for the Crossfit Regionals at George Mason University. We were fortunate to be able to book the Stafford House for Thursday and Friday evening. We booked the suite and we felt so pleased when we reached our destination as the accommodation exceeded our expectations. Donna met us... More

Great location close to everything including the metro station , yet we felt like we were in our own private retreat .Great breakfast delivered to your spotless room at the time of your choice, would definitely stay here again. Enjoyed the privacy and quiet atmosphere on our anniversary weekend.

I enjoyed my stay here. I had to book the Queen room one day and the suite the next because of availability that weekend. Donna is an excellent host that made the transition perfect. I'm happy we got to try each room. They both were very cosy. We would return if needed.

Surprised my husband with a visit to Washington DC, our stay at the Stafford house was fantastic, only 30-40 minutes from Washington. The place was peaceful and big. The town of Fairfax had a great small town feeling. The food was great and our hostess Donna was very friendly and non intrusive. I would definitely stay here again if I... More
