“B&B 'par excellence'”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2011

We have been staying at this B&B for the past 7 years and have never had less than a great experience. Curtis and Jean are excellent hosts and at their home you feel 'at home'......the ultimate aim of a B&B. The breakfasts, cooked by Jean, and of course supervised (at least he thinks so) by Curtis are superb! You will not need lunch. There are lots of things to do and see in the area and Curtis and Jean have a wealth of information to pass on. Of all the places we have stayed this is the one that stands head and shoulders above the rest. When we began flying into Washington the Bennett House was a convenient stopover but now we often stay for a week finding the area has still much to offer.

My wife and I stayed there for a long weekend over Valentine's Day weekend. The house was a very nice, older home turned bed and breakfast. It was on a cul-de-sac in a neighborhood. The area was very quiet, but it was still close enough that there were things to do. We had to drive a little ways to get to a Metro station, but it wasn't too bad. The breakfast was delicious and the owner had quite a cache of interesting stories he told us during breakfast. Everyone eats at one table in the dining room, so it may be a bit out your comfort zone if you're a private person, but it's often interesting to learn about other people. The room we stayed in was across the hall from the bathroom, but we were in the small room. We had the bathroom to ourselves, so no worries. I believe the larger room had a bathroom inside the room. The rooms were clean and they had free WiFi. We would definitely stay again and would recommend it to others.

I stayed 4 nights, 2 with my 24 yr old daughter and then 2 more when my husband joined us. Our room was delightful, bed comfortable and our private bathroom was across the hall. When my husband joined us, our daughter conveniently used their office that had a twin bed in it, right next to our room. Wireless internet is available, along with a refrig upstairs stocked with water bottles! Each morning breakfasts were very good and varied. Many days breakfast was so filling that we didn't even need lunch. Jean and Curtis were wonderful hosts, so pleasant. While serving breakfast, they asked if we needed directions, options on what to do, etc. Curtis gave me his cell phone # for any questions about directions, restaurants or anything. I ended up calling him many times and he was always pleasant and had helpful answers. On the day we went into Washington D.C., Curtis drove us to the train station and showed me how to buy the tickets. He really took care of us and then they both picked us up at the end of the day in their car. Such service!!
The B&B is located in the historic district of Manassas, walking distance (about 5-10 min) to shops and restaurants. The battlefield is a short 5-10 minute drive away.
The day we chose to go to Gettysburg to see the reenactment, they had breakfast ready early for us.
The Bennett House was a wonderful start to our trip and highly recommend it.

Room Tip: Our room had a detached bathroom which was our private bathroom. Ours was fine. The other room I un...

My wife and I stayed for two nights while visiting the local sites - D.C. is only an hour's train ride away (and the train station is just two minutes away), and Manassas itself is a treasure trove of Civil War history. Curtis and Joan are the host couple who made our stay very enjoyable. There are two rooms - we stayed in the Queen's room which gave us sole access to the bathroom just down the hall. The Master room has its own, beautifully redone, bathroom. It just so happened that at the time of our stay, we had the place to ourselves! Their house is a beautiful, old home with some lovely remodeling and updating done on it. Curtis and Joan were around enough to be available if we needed them but they were not always visible, which made my wife and I feel as if the house was truly ours. The breakfasts, served in their lovely dining area, complete with wonderfully quiet, soothing music playing, were delicious. Stuffed french toast one day and blueberry pancakes another. The dish/stem ware used made us feel quite royal. Curtis was extremely helpful in getting us to the train station (provided an unexpected, and much appreciated chauffeur service) and assisting us with directions and "what to see and do" suggestions. Were we to every head back to the quaint old town of Manassas, we would surely look to stay at the Bennett House again.

We spent a long day in Washington, DC walking around the monuments and visiting the Smithsonian Museums. We were cold, hungry and tired when we arrived at Bennett House. We were warmly welcomed by the innkeepers (who live there), Curtis and Jean. The Inn was beautifully furnished, cozy and immaculate. They recommened a restaurant, Okra's where we ate delicious New Orleans-style food. The next morning we enjoyed an amazing breakfast prepared by Jean, complete with a birthday candle so I could make a wish! I wish we could return for another visit soon!

Room Tip: call and speak with Curtis

If you are going to northern Virginia or Washington, D.C. do yourself a favor and stay at the Bennett House. My wife and I enjoy the B+B experience and Curtis and Jean have created a very special hideaway in Manassas. The house is 100 years old but beautifully kept and the two rooms are decorated with an eye for country elegance. The bathrooms are modern and immaculate.We took advantage of the washer and dryer tucked away in the back of our bathroom. Curtis was very helpful with directions and suggestions about the area but the most impressive event was breakfast featuring local fruit from the farmers market, homemade french toast with freshly baked apples, free range eggs, sausage from a local butcher and pretty darn good coffee.
