The Peake-Fairfax House Bed&Breakfast would always be my first choice when visiting the DC area in the future!!! The Nagle's are great hosts and their place feels like home. Chet has so many wonderful stories to tell and I can't wait to read his books. Dorothy has decorated her home with so many fascinating pieces of art that I could have spent a whole day talking to her about each piece.
Morning breakfast was great and the place settings for breakfast was very fancy and much to my liking. We met their son who in his own right was just as interesting as his parents. They are very easy people to talk to and their 19th century home was just a fun place to visit.
The house is situated in a great location to get over to DC for any sightseeing visits. It was a true pleasure to stay there.
