Visited for overnight on July 8 for my husband's 60th birthday. The night was a surprise and included dinner at the Inn and then overnight in the Gamekeeper's Cottage. Let me start with the accommodations. Superb!! Service with a capital S. Everyone we dealt with treated us as if we were the only guests in the place. The cottage is... More

We celebrated our Anniversary at the Inn this week as we have every five years for over twenty five years. It continues to excel beyond any competition as the best. We stayed in the Gamekeepers cottage and recommend it over any of the other lodging choices. Expensive but worth it for treating yourself to the best. Great shaded gazebo for... More

At the crossroads of Middle and Main Streets in Washington, Virginia sits an experience.  I've long heard about it (about 12-13 years or so) but just took the small trek Saturday night to experience for ourselves. Phenomenal, that's really all I can and all that needs to be said. If that doesn't do it for you, I shall elaborate.  From... More

I can't claim to be a regular but if there was any place in the US to go for a special night or weekend, this is it.

Yes it is expensive, but you are paying for the experience as well as the food.

We did not stay on property, but dined there. We booked accommodations in town within walking distance of The Inn. We enjoyed cocktails in the posh, holiday-decorated lounge prior to our dinner reservation, and were seated on time. The dining experience was magnificent. Everything was artistically plated, inventive, and delicious. One of dessert options was the cheese cart - which... More

This was our third stay at the Inn at Little Washington and they just keep getting better and better. Our room, the Gary Danko Room was lovely and the food and service impeccable. It's important to understand that the room rate does not include the spectacular dinner, which is also an extraordinary slurge. But if you're prepared and have a... More

The staff was superb as was the room. The room rates are extremely high but we knew this at booking. The prix fix dinner at $198 per person was excellent but a little too gourmet for some people with simpler tastes. The complimentary breakfast is nice but at these prices the Inn should not be charging &30 extra for an... 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
