Patrick O’Connell abandoned his dream of becoming an actor for cooking and the “living theater” of the restaurant world. Just an hour’s drive from Washington DC, this sumptuous hideaway nestled at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains is a world-renowned destination for gourmets in the know. The menu spotlights Chef O’Connell’s spectacular, refined American dishes, like carpaccio of herb-crusted baby lamb with Caesar salad ice cream, served in dining rooms whose inspired décor creates a wondrous cocoon of luxury. The Inn’s rooms and suites are aptly named after America’s culinary pioneers, and opulent lounges complete the transformation to an idyllic fantasy world.
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.
