We had a lovely weekend stay at the Inn, and enjoyed our first trip to this part of Virginia. The welcoming, the gardens, our balcony - well-appointed and relaxing. The staff offers little touches that make the visit special. We ate in the restaurant two nights; one would have been sufficient. We found the restaurant service to be fine, not remarkable. All but one of the many dishes we sampled over the course of our stay were fantastic, both in terms of presentation and taste.
While you're in the area, you may enjoy checking out the nearby towns of Sperryville and Culpepper. Beautiful hikes in Shenandoah National Park are within easy driving distance. We did one to Mary's Rock that was lovely.
We also found the purveyors we met to be friendly and warm. Particular stops worth mentioning are Haley Fine Art in Sperryville, It's About Thyme in Culpepper and Chris Goodine's Designs In Gold and Silver, a few steps down from the Inn.
- 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
