I am not a review writer and usually let the opportunity pass to comment on poor or even good dining experiences. Dinner at the Foster Harris House, however, was noteworthy on so many levels and definitely one of the best ever dining experiences we have had (including several at the Inn just down the street). The whole thing demands comment... More

I can't recommend the Foster Harris House highly enough. Everything about the Inn is superb. Diane and John are the most gracious and welcoming of hosts, the rooms are lovely, and John's food is fabulous. We first discovered the Inn when we went to Washington, VA to dine at the Inn at Little Washington. We now drive to Washington to... More

First, I have to say my husband and I are not into bed and breakfasts. In fact, we got a gift certificate for any b&b for our wedding 4 years ago and had never used it. We wanted to go to the Inn for dinner, so I started looking at b&bs. There are several in the area, but after looking... More

Many things linger in our minds from various B & B's but having been born and raised in farming country we always seek B & B's in rural settings. Foster Harris House should never be associated with a farm, but they obviously have farm neighbors. We remember with genuine appreciation the welcoming smile of John and Diane, the coziness and...

On Sunday afternoons, John and Diane will arrange a cooking class for small groups (6-10 people). I enjoy food, wine and cooking, and have taken a number of cooking classes over the past several years. This one, by far, was the most enjoyable of all! That's all because John and Diane are the most incredible hosts, the quality of the... More

A small group of our family and friends get together at Foster Harris House every year before Christmas. The accommodations are lovely. The food and service are exceptional. It is a must!! John, Diane, Finn and Stella are the best hosts ever. If you have not visited, make your reservations now!!

Our family visits the Foster Harris House every year before Christmas. It's the start of our Christmas and after all these years John and Diane have become more like family and every year it seems to get better!

Marking our ninth consecutive weekend before Christmas sojourn to Foster Harris House we leave once again delighted by the experience. The warmth of Little Washington, Virginia together with this incredible B&B make for a really special weekend! Of note, John has developed into a world class chef. Breakfast has always been amazing and John has now progressed to "over the... More

My wife and I stayed for a weekend getaway and John and Diane exceeded our expectations. The house is charming (we stayed in the smallest room and thoroughly enjoyed it). Dinner was incredible, Three hours of relaxing enjoyment. We tried foods (and wines) that we wouldn't have normally ordered and loved them all. The carrot ginger soup and ahi tuna... More

My boyfriend and I just came back from an weekend birthday getaway to Washington VA and we couldn't have had a more fabulous time! Although the focal point was to be dinner at the Inn at Little Washington, the entire weekend was made perfect by Diane and John at the Foster Harris House. The Inn, right down the street, is...
