“Beautiful B & B, beautiful town!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

My mom, sisters and I spent this past weekend at the Peake-Fairfax House to celebrate my baby sister's 50th birthday, and I must say, it was spectacular! The home is beautiful, the Nagle family is wonderful, friendly and welcoming, and the town of Alexandria is gorgeous! We were just a block from the main shopping thoroughfare of King Street, and just a few minutes drive to National Harbor and Mt. Vernon. If you are looking for a delightful B & B in a delightful town, be sure to visit the Nagle family at the Peake-Fairfax House. You will NOT be disappointed!!

We had a wonderful time celebrating our 5th anniversary with the Nagles!! The house is beautifully decorated and loaded with charm. Great location in Alexandria. Their hospitality was greatly appreciated--they even made our anniversary dinner reservation at a local French restaurant. The Nagles provided a delicious breakfast each day, and they were sure to provide food that was safe for my food allergy. We highly recommend this B&B!

Dorothy and Chet Nagle's restored colonial home is a perfecf place to stay near WA, DC and to enjoy the surrounding countryside. Every room is beautifully appointed. The location just one block off King Street is close to all the main Old Town sites and access to the free trolley to Metro.
Their suggestions for restaurants and places to see were fantastic and they went out of their way to help us enjoy our limited time. Healthy breakfast. But most enjoyable is the chance to get to know these charming hosts. Be sure to ask Chet to talk to you about his two recently published novels and the next to be published soon, and if you are lucky he'll have extra copies available which he will graciously autograph. Thanks Dorothy and Chet....we'll be back!

Room Tip: Bedrooms are on the third floor so do be prepared for stairs.

Beautiful home in a fabulous location. Beautiful town to walk around & within easy reach of the metro for Washington. We stayed in the Poetry suite which had the most comfortable bed! The hosts Dorothy and Chet went out of their way to make our stay the most memorable.It is obviously such a happy family home that it shines through. It was lovely to meet the family & we really enjoyed the wine. Couldn't fault anything and would definitely recommend.

My girlfriend and I stayed at Peake-Fairfax for 3 months during the summer while we worked in the DC area. There is not one bad thing to say about the place. The owner and family are extremely nice and accommodating. If you have any questions about the area, issues while visiting, or just want to have a conversation with someone, I guarantee someone in the house will take more than enough out of their schedule to help out.

If you're looking for a hassle-free place to stay, you will not regret choosing Peake-Fairfax. Believe me when I say that anytime someone mentions they are visiting the northern-Virginia area, I will recommend Peake-Fairfax over any other option.

The location is especially good for anyone visiting the Old Town Alexandria area. Peake-Fairfax is a 5 minute walk to the waterfront area, great restaurants, shops, etc. It is also only 1 block away from a free trolley stop, which conveniently takes you to the nearest metro station in less than 10 minutes. So even if you plan on visiting the downtown DC or the National Mall, Peake-Fairfax is still a great option. The nearest metro station takes you straight into the city.

Enoy your stay! There's absolutely no way you won't.

From the very start we were welcomed into the peake fairfax as if we were family. The place is so gorgeous I had to double check what we were paying! On top of the gorgeous decor the staff (family) that run this place make you an amazing breakfast and are very accomdating. I would definitely recommend this place to any one and would come back without hesitation.

Not a bad thing to say about the experience, the family, the home. Fantastic location. Delicious breakfast. Comfortable AND nice lodging - with some history to boot. And, the family is so much fun! Incredibly attentive and helpful from the first contact via email to the bagged breakfast that was left for us for our 4am departure. I cannot say enough good things. My ordinarily picky husband declared that we will never stay anywhere else!
