I must confess, after my husband and I visited Hope and Glory earlier this year, we felt the need to keep it a secret. We couldn't believe that such an idyllic place existed just a few hours from D.C. From the beautiful accommodations, to Chef Anne's stellar meals, to the incredible hospitality and warmth of Peggy, Dudley & Meseret, this special Inn is truly a little slice of heaven.
I returned in early September for my Mother's birthday, and she was equally taken with the Inn. She has not stopped raving about what a unique place the Inn is, and about the extra care Meseret and Peggy took in making sure that her birthday was spectacular.
The Inn has now become my "special" place, and is just too amazing to keep it to myself. I look forward to enjoying it for years to come.
