“Charming and Friendly B&B”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

My boyfriend and I just got back from a wonderful weekend at the Fairlea Farm B&B. Walt and Susan were gracious hosts and the property is beautiful. A huge breakfast each morning was a great way to start a day of wine tasting. We will definitely be back!

Room Tip: We stayed in The Suite so we would have a fireplace, but plan to return in the summer and opt for a...

My wife and I have travelled extensively in the military throughout Europe & US east and west coasts but have never found a B&B to compare with Fairlea Farms. The rooms are spacious and private with wonderful, large updated bathrooms that can accomodate two or more people at a time. The panoramic views throughout the house of the Blue Ridge Mountains offer beautiful vistas. They are next to Route 211 and are central to Washington, Lurray, the mountains & historical sites. Most important, though is the immediate warmth & generosity that Walt & Susan provide to all guests that is real and sincere. This is not a business to them but rather a means to extend a cordial welcome to guests who become their friends. We loved feeding Rosco & Christopher the Mediteranean Donkeys. And it was a short walk to the lovely town of Washington. Walt stoked the fireplace for us & we couldn't wait to return after New Years celebrations. Walt and Susan are not just wonderful hosts but wonderful people. Susan's cooking is incomparable. This is now our getaway and we will come back time & again. Thanks Walt and Susan for a wonderful visit!

My husband and I celebrated our 30th anniversary with Walt and Susan at Fairlea Farm -- hiking, exploring and capping our weekend with dinner at the Inn at Little Washington. We had a lovely weekend in every way, and Walt's tips about how to best enjoy our dinner at the Inn helped to make that special meal even more memorable than it might have been.

The rooms at Fairlea Faram are large and comfortable, the bathrooms are bright, spacious and new (great showers) , the breakfasts yummy. The farm itself and its location are beyond perfect --every window has a to die for view. Addiing to all this were the hosts. Their warmth and thoughtfulness were beyond expectations. Without being intruded upon, we were treated like valued old friends.

We can't wait to return.

Such a comfortable and lovely place, wonderful views. A short walk to the Inn at Little Washington, and right by 211 so easy access to other areas. Susan makes a wonderful breakfast served on fine china and even made us tea in the afternoon when we asked. Very comfortable, attractive rooms with sparkling new baths. We'll be back!

We stayed at Fairlea Farm during a weekend trip to Washington, VA. The scenery is breathtaking, even during the winter months! After meeting our great hosts, Susan and Walt, we checked out our room, the Meadow Room, on the 2nd floor. The room was nicely decorated and had an amazing bathroom - mountain views while brushing your teeth is quite the way to start or end a day!
We told Susan and Walt that we were eating at the Inn at Little Washington for dinner and they gave us all kinds of insiders tips. I recommend you stay there too before your dinner, you will not be disappointed.
Susan prepared a wonderful breakfast for us in the morning including fresh fruit, baked goods, eggs, sausage and more. I would happily return to Fairlea Farm on another trip to Washington, VA.

Room Tip: Meadow Room is wonderful!

What a lovely B&B! We bought a room here from a silent auction and had a wonderful stay. highly recommend the Rose room- with a GREAT bathroom- huge shower, two sinks. Dont forget to feed the rabbits and donkeys...and of course take a short stroll over to The Inn at Little Washington for drinks and or dinner. Susan and Walt were so kind, informative, helpful.. and just really GOOD people. My husband and I will be returning.. and buying gift certificates for friends. Their property has amazing views. Breakfast was really special..

Room Tip: The Rose room was spectacular.. comfy bed, clean, and the bathroom was a WOW

This is a place to which we plan to return. There is so much beauty in the area and this B& B is the perfect place from which to explore it. Our host and hostess provided the perfect combination of attention and privacy. Our room and bath were well furnished, well lighted , clean and comfortable. The breakfasts were superb, featuring products produced at Fairlea and locally. Because you are staying on a real farm, there is much to interest you right at hand: donkeys, sheep and a lovely cat.

All in all - a wonderful find for a country trip.
