For our anniversary, I surprised my wife with an overnight stay and dinner at the Inn. From the moment we walked in the door (and Flora took my wife's tote bag from her shoulder, and carried it around herself) to our effortless departure (no need to stop at the front desk to check out), every single detail was taken care...

It is said that not everything is said until everyone has said it! So many good things have been written about the Inn that it's hard to add but it's so good that I have to try. We had dinner and stayed overnight. Dinner has moved to a tasting menu which we liked very much. It caused us to taste... More

My spouse and I spent two nights at the Inn at Little Washington in August 2014. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, we experienced exceptional customer service, personalization, attention to detail, quality accommodations of the highest caliber and each meal was a celebration from tea to breakfast to dinner. I could go into detail on every... More

We came to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary and were made to feel special from the moment we arrived. The refreshing drink when we arrived, the afternoon tea with pastry, then the extraordinary dinner. All were far above what one would receive in most high in restaurants. Our room in the inn was also special and well appointed. So many... More

My family and I had a wonderful stay at the Inn at Little Washington. We booked the Mayor's House which had a separate loft area for our two teenagers and your own little private garden. The service was spectacular. The grounds, perfectly manicured. The estate was peaceful. You can sit out on the lawn chair at night and gaze at... More

Naturally, our expectations were very high as we headed to Little Washington. The town is charming, the inn is lovely, and the staff is friendly and attentive without being intrusive.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in the small town of Washington, Virginia, The Inn at Little Washington is the only Double Forbes Five Star, Double AAA Five Diamond property in the Washington metro area. The Inn's eighteen bedrooms and suites are sumptuous hideaways created by Joyce Evans, a London stage and set designer, for whom The Inn has become a life's work. Many of the furnishings were purchased in England, numbered and shipped to Virginia to be assembled on site like a giant jigsaw puzzle. The Inn offers a range of accommodations from well-appointed rooms to luxurious, two story suites many with balconies and garden views. The Inn's dining rooms are pure fantasy - a wondrous cocoon of luxury. Rose-colored, silk lampshades float above each table creating a private, romantic world below. Chef/Proprietor Patrick O'Connell's creations arrive as if served by invisible hands, course after course more dazzling than the last. From the award-winning 14,000 bottle wine cellar, which includes the finest offerings from Bordeaux, Burgundy, California and Virginia, the Sommelier plays matchmaker between you, your dinner and the wine. ... more   less
