You will not be disappointed. This is arguably the best restaurant in the country and the rooms are gorgeous. I typically write long reviews detailing every aspect of a property, but I'm perfectly content simply telling folks that spending a night at The Inn at Little Washington (and having dinner there) should be on everyone's bucket list.

We stayed on March 9th to celebrate my 74th birthday - and were upgraded to the Julia Child Suite. Magnificent . . the bathroom was almost as large as most bedrooms and the bedroom has a bed bench, cocktail table and other furniture along with a heavily draped King bed, recessed ceiling with special lighting, lots of wall sconces and...

This is a place that you go to if you want to be spoiled and treated like royalty. Service is second to none..their goal is to make you as happy and relaxed as possible.

Like many, we had heard the raves about the Inn, built in a corner of a lovely village at the site of an old gas station garage. The food was all that it was promised to be, with the single exception being a fairly dry and tasteless block of rockfish. The service was seamless, and we enjoyed a visit to... More

I don't know where to begin this review! From the time we drove up to the front of the Inn and valet parked the car until we got back into our car to leave this morning, the service was impeccable! The room was gorgeous and I think they upgraded us because we reserved the standard room but ended up in... More

My husband and I recently spent a night at the Inn at Little Washington to celebrate a special occasion. We found the experience to be luxurious and well, wonderful. We rented the Gamekeepers Cottage, which we loved. The ability to have a drink on a private porch overlooking the Field of Dreams was a lovely experience (we ended up repeating... More

Beautiful, comfortable surroundings, with every effort made to ensure a wonderful experience for each guest! The staff is incredibly efficient and cordial, and made us feel right at home in this grand old country house. Chris, the designated "Ringmaster" gave us a rollicking history of the building and its gifted Chef/Owner. Our suite had its own walled private garden, and... More

I was nearby for a meeting and decided to stay the night instead of driving back. So walked into the lobby to see if they had any rooms that evening. This was the only odd part of my stay - I was given a phone by the front desk person to book a room (even though I was standing right... More

Went with friends for whom this was a bucket list item. It should have been on mine. The most amazing food, service and staff of any restaurant where I've had the pleasure to eat. Felt like we had been transported by time machine to a bygone era. Beautiful decor. I can't compliment the chef and staff enough.
