The Inn is in a tiny town that is mostly owned by the Inn. The rooms are over the top drapes, fabrics, etc., and it all works. The staff is devoted to the "five star" experience for everyone. They work as a team with the goal of making you feel special. We loved the vegetable garden, the chickens, the very... More

My husband and I had booked our last night in Virginia here expecting it to be amazing and therefore saving the best till last. Perhaps we arrived with too high expectations but the place just somehow didn't quite click with us. The buildings are amazing and whilst not to our taste we both appreciated the effort that has gone into... More

My husband and I visited the Inn at Little Washington in mid-August 2015 and had another exceptional stay. They exceeded expectations in every way. From the valet/bell staff who immediately take care of your vehicle and smoothly transition your luggage to your room to the front desk staff who offer you their welcome beverage and escort you to tea to...

The Inn at Little Washington is such a fantastic experience. Located in the picturesque and tranquil Virginia countryside, it was the perfect getaway for my mom and I for her birthday weekend. It was the first time in years that I've gone somewhere where you can walk outside and to different shops without hearing the din of cars and traffic.... More

This marked our sixth visit to the Inn at Little Washington since 1998. Every year, owner/chef Patrick O'Connell adds more awards, expands his properties, enhances his kitchen, plants another garden and makes visitors wish they never went anywhere else. We always stay for three nights so we can sample every delicacy in the dining room and get as much enjoyment... More

What an amazing place. As would have said Beaudelaire, "Là, tout n'est qu'ordre et beauté, Luxe, calme et volupté." Service was outstanding, the food and drinks made to perfection and is a truly innovative cuisine, the gardens are romantic, and the rooms so comfortable. Coming back as soon as we can.

Remarkably busy on an August weekday, but the drive was beautiful, the welcome excellent, the food superb and plentiful ( it would be hard to eat two such dinners in a row). Only surprise was that our room did not have a bathtub- so better ask when you reserve. My wife particularly enjoyed the banter of the dining room staff-... More

The Inn is charming with beautiful rooms and bathrooms. We were greeted at the door by name and escorted around the public areas, stopping to pick up a glass of Proseco. By the time we were escorted upstairs, less than 5 minutes, our luggage was in the room. There were 2 comfortable wingback chairs plus a comfy seat in a... More

This inn is, in a word, amazing. The service and friendliness of the staff is unsurpassed. The 24 hour room service was excellent. We stayed in a two story suite with a widow's walk off the bedroom to a veranda on the roof with panoramic views of the mountains. We ate breakfast out on it, which was breath taking. Every... More

Thank you for your review. We're thrilled that you could be with us for your 15th anniversary. Our intent is to provide service and interior décor that evokes the feel of a stately if not luxurious country estate, as if you were visiting the home of a family member or friend. This allows us to stay away from "hotel mode"... More

I don't usually write reviews for businesses with unblemished and well-established reputations for excellence. They don't need me, and potential readers of any review I might write don't need me. Anything I might say would just be piling on. So be it. But I'm going to pile on. I've been a regular, if infrequent, guest of TIALW since the mid-eighties.... More
