Everything about this place is perfect. The only thing that would make it better would be my ability to go back more often...You drive up, and they are waiting to unload your car. Your room gets ready while the host pours you a arrival cocktail. The town is charming. The food is incredible. The bar is just as incredible. The... More

First and foremost, this is a 1-1/2 hour drive from Washington DC and creates a creative and luxurious getaway treat for a special occasion and I would/will always recommend The Inn for that reason. However, having had the ability to do just that on several occasions over the years since I live in the Washington DC area, I have noticed... More

The cuisine, the staff, and the ambiance is everything the Inn is all about! I must say by far the veil tongue was truly decadent and blue collar rolled into one. Do yourselves a favor, just do it! There is not much more to say because the Chef Patrick says it with his pure genius. I am adding on to... More

With the reputation this restaurant has it would be difficult for any business to live up to and exceed one's expectations. For my wife's and my wedding anniversary we wanted to celebrate big at this restaurant that's been on our list for a long time.

We stayed two nights at the Mayor's House for our 20th wedding anniversary. We had dinner both nights. The second night we reduced our courses by one so we didn't eat as much and the cost was reduced, too. The food and service was impeccable. They make every guest feel like the most important person in the world. Staying 2... More

My wife and I celebrated our 38th Wedding Anniversary last weekend with a trip thru Annapolis and into rural Virginia. Our targeted destination was the Inn at Little Washington in Washington, VA...not DC. I had been here once before on business and have longed for my wife to have this amazing gastronomic experience. The place is gorgeous...the appropriately garbed footmen... More

Well, it was my 65th. birthday and my wife wanted to celebrate it in a big way. So she booked a weekend trip to northern Virginia which concluded with dinner at The Inn at Little Washington. To make it simple, I have dined at several 5 Diamond restaurants which includes this one, but I have to admit that The Inn... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in the small town of Washington, Virginia, The Inn at Little Washington is the only Double Forbes Five Star, Double AAA Five Diamond property in the Washington metro area. The Inn's eighteen bedrooms and suites are sumptuous hideaways created by Joyce Evans, a London stage and set designer, for whom The Inn has become a life's work. Many of the furnishings were purchased in England, numbered and shipped to Virginia to be assembled on site like a giant jigsaw puzzle. The Inn offers a range of accommodations from well-appointed rooms to luxurious, two story suites many with balconies and garden views. The Inn's dining rooms are pure fantasy - a wondrous cocoon of luxury. Rose-colored, silk lampshades float above each table creating a private, romantic world below. Chef/Proprietor Patrick O'Connell's creations arrive as if served by invisible hands, course after course more dazzling than the last. From the award-winning 14,000 bottle wine cellar, which includes the finest offerings from Bordeaux, Burgundy, California and Virginia, the Sommelier plays matchmaker between you, your dinner and the wine. ... more   less
