We dined here for our 6th anniversary and it was better than expected! As soon as we walked in, although ran about 10 mins late for our reservation and had called to give them the heads up, they greeted us with a smile, a happy anniversary and were told to take our time, relax, because it was our special day...

This is our second stay at the Inn. Julie Child room 1 is at the back of the main building over the kitchen area--2 porches--one is noisy next to the AC unit, the other is quieter. Room has blue toile and looks just like the pics in the Inn book. Room and bath very large and comfy. Lots of places... More

This is our favourite hotel in the USA. You just have to go and experience it. It is quite the most charming and delightfully theatrical / over the top place you could hope to stay, but that does not do it justice. This is a seriously nice hotel for those who like seriously nice hotels. Not one of your smart... More

This hotel/restaurant is just exquisite. We spent just one night on Labor day weekend, but it was magical from beginning to end. The service was the best we have ever experienced on this side of the Atlantic. The food was outstanding from presentation, to taste and timeliness! This is our second time in the Inn, but hope it will not... More

I recently ate at this restaurant and found this to be a totally extraordinary experience. Despite the high cost, the evening , the meal and the setting were all beyond my expectation. The menu is flexible but in general you pick from one of 3 catagories and the service begins, however , there are little additional items brought out for... More

Our second overnight stay at the Inn and truly, an even better experience, if thats possible. We celebrated a 50th birthday with dinner, our engagement and honeymoon with dinner and stay, and we now feel like extended family. Every time we have received impeccable service and notice even more details than the last time. As we were going to the... More

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

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
