The Inn at Little Washington

Certificate of Excellence
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.

My husband and I have wanted to dine at The Inn at Little Washington for decades and finally had the opportunity to do so on a recent trip to Virginia. The dinner was the finest we've ever experienced in our world travels. The Michelin upgrade was validated. A round of applaus

.The Inn at Little Washington had been on our bucket list for at least 15 years and it truly lived up to our expectations. Nestled in the town of Washington, VA and surrounded by meadows and wooden fences, Washington, VA was first surveyed by none other than the 17-year-old Georg

Anyone stay in the Julia Child room? We made reservations for December and I got overwhelmed trying to pick a room. In the end I picked the Julia Child room. It is the one that is blue and yellow- I didn't realize there is not a fireplace, which would be nice for our December visit. Is there a shower? I only see a bath in photos. What are your general thoughts regarding this room?
Hi - we stayed in the Jacques Pepin Room, a Junior Suite which did have a fireplace, but I have to say that you cannot go wrong at this hotel. Our stay there remains one of the most memorable and worthwhile hotel visits we have ever experienced. And that does not even include the restaurant, which is obviously amazing as well. I am sure you will be comfortable no matter what you choose, so breath easy and get prepared for a most relaxing trip! PS - look at the visitor posted pics of the Julia Child bathroom and you will see a shower to the left of the picture. It seems to be set up just as ours was. Hope this is helpful.

What time is the afternoon tea? And what time is check in?
We have reserved two nights for this month. Does the Inn honor AAA ?
They don't give an AAA discount, if that's what you mean.

I will be taking my wife to The Inn at Little Washington in December for a Christmas/20th anniversary gift before the military sends me to Korea. So my questions is: which room is the most romantic? I think I have it narrowed down to the Norman Garden suite (love the fireplace in Dec plus the octagonal bathroom looks very nice) or the bi-level 11 which has the most gorgeous bathroom I've ever seen. Any suggestions? I can't wait!
Love the Garden suite. The Mayor's house is incredible too - two fire places, with a huge one in the bedroom. We love the bi-level suites, but no fore place in either. We haven't stayed in the Parsonage, but the rooms look great and I know some have fire places. Have a great time and, more so, thank you for your service. Godspeed.

Help me understand. Does the Far From the Madding Crowd Package include dinner or just guarantee a reservation?
It guarantees you a dinner reservation and includes dinner along with taxes and gratuity.
