Nestled at the foothills of the Blue Ridge mountains, 75 miles from Washington, DC, the Inn at Little Washington has become known to some as a romantic fantasy world far removed from the harsh realities of modern day life. To others, it is a culinary oasis akin to visiting a Michelin starred restaurant in the European countryside. Guests often remark that while the interiors of the 24 rooms, suites and cottages could be called grand, they are also whimsical and wonderfully comfortable. All stays include a refreshing welcome cocktail and a delightful afternoon tea service, as well as a house breakfast each morning. Take time to explore the Tavern Shops, and wander the village, which hasn’t changed much since George Washington first surveyed it in 1749.
