“Cozy and Quiet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2012

The Stafford house was a wonderful start to mine and my husbands honeymoon. The place was quiet, the bed very comfortable and the bathroom was lovely! The only complaints I had of the place was the 2 nights we stayed there, I woke up with a couple more bug bites than I would have wanted and it was in the bed that I got them. Also, there needs to be a little more ventilation in the room. Other than that, the breakfast was very nice and our stay was well worth it.

Room Tip: The Queen room was where we stayed and we recommend it very much! It was facing the street, but we d...

Thanks for letting us know. I'm sorry to hear about your bites! We have never had any complaints about bed bugs and take the cleanliness of our rooms very seriously. I thoroughly inspected the bed as soon as I read your review and was unable to find find any evidence of bugs on the mattress or any of the linens. We will continue to routinely inspect the room to make sure that there are no problems. Thanks again for staying with us.

We have stayed in B&Bs in several countries and in the DC area. Stafford House is best of them all. It is in a beautiful setting with ample parking and a lovely place to stay. The hosts were very pleasant and helpful. We were served grand breakfasts in our room each morning for the week we stayed. You will not be disappointed and will, in fact, find it amoung the very best and a great experience

The Stafford House is a very nice B&B that is close to Wolf Trap, Paradise Springs Winery and some good food. Donna made our delicious breakfasts and took good care of us. Bed and bath were very nice. Stafford House is quiet because it only has 2 bedrooms. We kind of missed having a common area where you can relax and meet other guests, but overall we had a wonderful experience. We would not hesitate to return.

I can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay at Stafford House B&B!!!! Our host, Donna, couldn't have been more accomadating or gracious! Our lovely room was perfect and inviting! Why would we want to stay at a hotel when we could be here?????
Comfort, privacy, luxury! We can only hope our travels bring us back to the D.C. area soon! Thank you so much, Donna, for making our trip perfect! See you again soon!

Room Tip: PERFECT! Donna was the perfect host! Hope to return soon!

Before last year I had tried several hotels in Faifax, which I visit for business at least annually, and never bothered to return to any of them. Then I discovered Stafford House, tucked behind the trees off Chain Bridge Road. I've just been back for a second time and will not be looking for any other accommodation in this town unless they are booked out. The huge bathroom is so fabulous I'm half-tempted to bed down in the jacuzzi. But then the main room is so clean, relaxing and charming, it would a shame not to make the most of it. This is a rare traveler's treasure - and the number of newlyweds who seem to spend their first nights here also attests to a great experience. There is no better way to start a business day than with Donna's fresh breakfasts, delivered by trolley on the dot of time requested. The owners are helpful and charming and I really can't think of one quibble. It's just a wonderful discovery, and real value for money.

Room Tip: Book early, ask for the upstairs room,

My husband and I were given a gift certificate to the Stafford House as a wedding gift. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, from the large jetted tub to the very comfortable bed to the fireplace in the room. The owner was quite hospitable and catered to our every need. In the morning, breakfast was delivered to our room and the presentation was breathtaking; French toast beautifully arranged with fruit and powdered sugar, bacon, and coffee. We highly recommend the Stafford House if you are looking for a great place to stay in the Northern Virginia/DC area.

My husband and I spent 5 nights at this B&B and couldn't have been more pleased,. The hostess provided a comfortable atmosphere, answered questions, and was very friendly. The room was very comfortable, and certainly roomy for the two of us to spread out for a week's stay. The bathroom was like a spa. The breakfast was served in our room and delicious and hearty every day -- we never had to eat lunch and we spent the whole day on our feet walking and touring. There was a bus stop right outside the front door with an easy commute to the Metro station. Private parking was provided as well.
