The late Craig Claiborne of The New York Times called The Inn at Little Washington “the most magnificent inn I’ve ever seen, in this country or Europe, where I had the most fantastic meal of my life.”

The Inn at Little Washington is known world-wide for it’s elegant accommodations and delectable dining. Whether designing a dish, a menu or a room, owner and chef Patrick O’Connell is known for his ability to view everything from the guest’s perspective. His attention to detail is legendary and his high standards are extraordinary, earning The Inn two Michelin stars, one of only three restaurants in the Greater Washington Area to be designated with the prestigious rating.

Dining at The Inn at Little Washington has been likened to a performance with the guest always playing the star role. 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. The Chef’s creations arrive at one of the 30 intimate tables as if served by invisible hands, course after course, each 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.

The Inn offers a range of accommodations from luxurious rooms to two-story suites, many with balconies and garden views. The twenty-four 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. While The Inn is known for its high level of service and luxurious décor, it is also an exceptional value with many complimentary services and amenities for guests.
