The smartly appointed country Inn at Little Washington is a charming hotel and gourmet sanctuary occupying an unassuming building on the main street of Washington, a rural village in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Twenty-four guest rooms and suites contain antiques, plush fabrics and marble baths. Request an extra-spacious Junior Suite or lavish Mayor’s House, with a sitting area, two fireplaces, private courtyard garden and Jacuzzi tub. More contemporary addition, The Parsonage, offers six rooms in a restored 1850s Victorian home. The Gamekeeper’s Cottage, just across the street, and the two-bedroom Claiborne House with living, dining and media rooms, have even more space and are a short distance from the inn. Celebrated two-star restaurant specializes in New American/French cuisine; also a 14,000-bottle wine cellar. The Inn at Little Washington and its restaurant are closed every Tuesday.
