If you're in this area for a horsing event, you'll feel right at home. If not, be warned. The locals are known for their aloof and somewhat snobby behavior. I mean, you're in horse country and last time I checked, horses (and anything having to do with them) aren't cheap so, there you go. I got a little of this... More

It is hard to write a review of a place that is sheer perfection. I can say that the service was exceptional. Not overly hyped, not pushy, not too much at all. It was JUST Right. Check-in, what check-in? They seem to know who you are before you come through the door. They had our room ready, gave us a... More

This famous establishment is often rated as one of the best, if not the best, restaurant in the world. And that is no exaggeration. Impeccable service and the finest meal you've ever experienced. A beautiful, setting in a beautiful area, with people who make you feel like family. Everyone should be fortunate enough to enjoy this at least once.

We just returned from a visit to The Inn. My sisters and their husbands had not been there before. I think the Inn is the most wonderful place in the world to visit. Now my family thinks so too. The food, the service and the accomodations perfection. Thank you Inn at Little Washington. You are the best!

A wonderful small hotel in a idyllic setting. The staff are excellent and even call you by name when they meet you walking about the town of Washington. With wineries, horse country and National parks all around the setting could not be better.

I recommend that anyone with the means and opportunity experience this gem at least once in their lifetime. Please be sure to purchase a package that includes meals, as the afternoon tea, cocktails, extravagant dinner, and breakfast are all part of the essential itinerary to fully understand what this place is all about. No stone is left unturned with regard... More

We stayed for one Saturday evening. Dinner was by far the best and most expensive meal we have ever eaten. Afternoon tea and breakfast were also wonderful. The main restaurant is cozy and beautiful. Service is superb and not stuffy. The only minor negative was the room. It was a cold weekend and the area of the room with the... More
