I was attending an architectural convention. My wife is from Virginia came with me. We found the Peake-Fairfax House the perfect location for each of us. I could catch the Metro for downtown DC and she could explore Old Town Alexandria.
The location met those goals. But the experience exceeded them. The house was just great. According to the Nagles, the house dates from 1812. The interiors are well restored. Those liking great, healthy breakfasts, this is the place.
The Nagles are great hosts. Good conversation and great restaurant recommendations. A winner every evening. Stayed 6 nights. Will return.
