Two couple friends of ours and we decided to do a birthday trip to the Inn at Little Washington (the BEST meal we've ever had anywhere, including other 3-Michelin starred restaurants), and decided to stay at Foster Harris B&B as I've had positive experience there before. Well, the inn is under new ownership, however, the inn is as charming as ever! They were actually closed during the night we were going to be there, but Klaus the owner was willing to accommodate us by opening for the night. The rooms are as charming as ever, and the breakfast was excellent! Klaus was a gracious and charming host who made us feel very welcome. Not only was he the perfect host, he went the extra mile when he found that I'd left an outfit in the room. He sent me a picture of it, and offered to

We recently spent the night at the Foster Harris House after a day in DC. Klaus and Giselle were delightful hosts. It is evident that they are passionate about their business; every detail from the reservation process to the heavenly 5 course breakfast was carefully thought out and well-executed with genuine enthusiasm. We highly recommend the Foster Harris House and we will definitely return!

My husband and I spent a weekend at the Foster-Harris House to celebrate my birthday. We stayed in the Mountain View Room with a lovely sitting area, which had chocolate chip cookies waiting for us when we arrived! Klaus was the perfect host and made us feel at home the moment we entered the House.. The ginger scones at breakfast were "to die for". It was a wonderful weekend; we didn't want to leave when Monday arrived. We will be back!

The Foster Harris House lived up to all the prior reviews - it was a perfect stay. Klaus makes you feel right at home from minute one, and he is an outstanding inn keeper. Our room and facilities were immaculate, comfortable, and private. The surrounding area is great as well. We did wine tasting at the Little Washington Winery and Wine Loves Chocolate, and had diner up the road at the Griffin Tavern. Coffee in the morning on the patio was the perfect way to start our day, and the breakfast was excellent. Not only was the presentation and ambiance perfect, but everything was delicious. I could not recommend Foster Harris House more highly - it was a perfect stay.

My wife and I recently spent a wonderful weekend in Washington, Virignia staying at the Foster Harris House B&B. Innkeeper Klaus and Gisele were warm and welcoming and their hospitality was amazing! Klaus and his staff provided gourmet breakfasts both mornings were there and he recommended the nearby Blue Door Kitchen and Inn for dinner. We ate there both nights and can highly recommend the menu that changes weekly using local ingredients. Restaurant ownders Reem and Chef Andrea did an amazing job in the kitchen with a fabulous wine list. And the prices were extremely reasonable especially compared to the Inn at Little Washington down the road from the FHH. A trip to nearby Sperryville is also highly recommended for its art and pottery galleries. The countryside was both
