My wife and I stayed her with her parents on the to and from legs of our trip to Washington DC. We enjoyed both our stays here, though we arrived later in the evening both nights so didn't have a long time to enjoy the house and neighbourhood. The house is beautiful, and don't be shy about asking to ride... More

We spent a chilly winter night at the Hillard House Inn this past weekend and were warmed up by the delightful ambience and the friendly company of the hosts. The room we stayed in--the Blue Room--was spacious with a comfortable bed and plush furnishing. A real highlight was relaxing by the fireplace downstairs. The Inn is located a short walk... More

My husband and I spent a night and loved it. They were such gracious hosts. Breakfast was very good and our room was very clean. We stayed in the Duchess suite. The bed was extremely comfortable and the room could be "blacked out" for my husband to take a mid day nap. The bathroom was so spacious and they had... More

I truly enjoyed my stay here. The hosts were gracious and the food was excellent. Only complaint would be the tight parking but even that didn't detract from my stay. The room was spacious although the bathroom was a bit small. The house and furnishings were exquisite. I highly recommend.
