I have been to the Inn many times and keep coming back because it’s a wonderful place to stay and eat. As my sister says, “It’s a complete experience.” My most recent trip was for my birthday and the birthday of a good friend. When we arrived, we enjoyed their wonderful tea in the living room. My only complaint is...

We've been here many times over the past 20 years and we're ALWAYS treated special. Outstanding service, romantic atmosphere, fine dining, room luxury and comfort, friendliness, everything you could want for a very special get-away. Patrick O'Connell has done an EXCELLENT job here! Hope it continues.

We have been coming to this Inn for years now and it never disappoints. Everything about it is perfection. Upon arrival we are greeted by familiar faces that are as happy to see us as we are them. We are then whisked into the lounge for champagne and high tea. Everything we are served is delicious. After tea we are...

I'd heard quite a bit about this place from some of my "foodie" friends. So we finally made it a point to go. And we were NOT disappointed!! From the moment we drove up and handed our car keys over for valet parking to the minute we walked out to find our car waiting for us right out front after...

There's little wonderful one can say that hasn't been been said already. The cuisine is superb and creative, served on a series of tasting menus. I'd like to note that the 2 story suites are beautiful but if you have problems with stairs, there is quite a steep ascent to these rooms. Ask before you book about the ease of...

For ten years now we have told our friends that our best experience was at the Inn. When our friends had an anniversary to celebrate we felt very confident suggesting a dinner there.

The Inn was just as lovely as everyone had told us. The food in the restaurant was excellent and we enjoyed the menu options. Can't say enough positive things about the staff and the experience. Everyone was awesome - friendly, informative and always make you feel special.

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
