My wife's Christmas present to me was the "Tour d'Epicure" which we enjoyed this past weekend. John and Diane are fantastic hosts. Our room was comfortable, we felt at home immediately, dinner and breakfasts were excellent and the cycling and routes were perfect. Maybe next Christmas??

Four of us ate dinner tonight at Foster Harris House. From the opening cocktail to the closing coffee - every bite, sip and morsel was delicious, thoughtful and well presented. The ambiance in the small dining room was intimate and comfortable. While close to the other diners, we were not overwhelmed by noise. The chef/owners, Diane & John, are super... More

Just attended an incredible cooking class lead by Chef John McPherson. If you have not eaten at Foster Harris House, cooked at Foster Harris house or stayed at Foster Harris House, you need to do all of the above! John's cooking class is a great way to get friends and family together for a few hours of teamwork and togetherness.

The MacPhersons were delightful.Our registration was easy and it was suggested for us to stay in the garden so that my 86 year old mom did not have to mannage any stairs.We enjoyed a complementary glass of wine before our stupendous meal at the "Inn".On our return soft bedding and comfy pillows quickly lead me to dream land. Jon promised... More

We cannot wait to go back for a longer stay and to try the cuisine at dinner. We showed up for our stay on a Friday evening -- less than half an hour before John & Diane were expecting a full house for dinner. Our own reservation at the Inn wasn't until late, so (being high maintenance) we asked whether... More

Foster Harris house was the ideal place for my husband and I to celebrate our anniversary. The house is so tastefully decorated and is the perfect combination of elegant and cozy. We stayed in the Compton Room, which Diane upgraded us to simply because the room was available. John and Diane made us feel welcome, but also respected our privacy.... More

Had dinne two blocks away at Inn at Little Washington first night and our dinner the next night at the Foster Harris house was seriously just as enjoyable. John is an amazing chef - our breakfasts and dinner at Foster Harris were some of the... More

Our first time at the Foster Harris House. We went on the recommendation of our daughter and son-in-law. They had raved about the food and we found it to be everything and more than we hoped for. We were there with our son and his fiancée and last night we ate scrumptious meal with great wines. Breakfast was equally as... More

This was my wife and I's third trip to the Foster Harris House. It has always been a fantastic break from our fast paced 'city life' and this was no different. As soon as we walk in the door the welcome from John and Diane (and the wine offered) take the weight of life away. On previous occasions we have... More

My wife and I stayed for one night and breakfast. We were greeted by chef John and felt right at home. The house and room were immaculate. At breakfast chef John and his wife Diane finished off our stay with the perfect meal. The plates were works of art and needless to say delicious. From the moment we stepped in... More
