“Best Breakfast in DC”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

I stayed at this quiet, charming bed and breakfast for a wedding. The room was clean and comfortable. It was very convenient to old town Alexandria's bars and restaurants-- we didn't need to drive at all. But the breakfasts were what really wowed me-- multiple courses, beautifully plated and with a variety of savory and sweet items at each meal. If we're ever near DC again, we'll be sure to stay here!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

Attractive, fresh and homey b&b a few blocks from King Street, the main thoroughfare of Old Town Alexandria. We loved our blue daisy room. Not frumpy or kitschy like you get in many b&bs.

Marie was extremely helpful and accommodating to my husband and me. We were planning our 5th anniversary trip around the childcare of our 2 year old. She was easy to reach and easy to communicate with.

Of note: beautiful and intimate backyard garden, a few blocks from Fontaine- an incredible creperie, blocks from the water and the Torpedo Factory.

We plan to return and will recommend that friends visit as well.

Room Tip: rooms on the back of the house overlook the garden.

Marie Buckley is the proprietress of this marvelous bed and breakfast. She went out of her way to help us find what we were looking for, and kindly adjusted her delicious breakfasts to match our dietary restrictions. When the temperature became unexpectedly cool for August, she took the extra time to open all of the windows, and then to close them again when the next heat wave arrived. By renting the large room on the third floor, you get a charming view of the garden. The house is in the historic district on the south side, close to the waterfront and near a newly designed park which is excellent for walking or jogging by the old lighthouse. It's a short walk to King Street which has many restaurants and shops and a free trolley to the DC metro.

Room Tip: The Blue Queen Room is ideal.
