The Inn at Little Washington

Created by Patrick O'Connell in 1978, The Inn at Little Washington was the first establishment in the Mobil Travel Guide's history ever to receive 5 stars for its restaurant and 5 stars for its accommodation, and is the first Inn ever to receive AAA's highest accolade, the 5 Diamond Award, for both food and accommodation. Patrick O’Connell abandoned his dream of becoming an actor for the love of cooking and the “living theatre” of the restaurant world.

Just an hour’s drive from Washington DC, this sumptuous hideaway, nestled at the Blue Ridge Mountains foot, is a world-renowned destination for connoisseurs. The menu spotlights O’Connell’s spectacular Refined American Cuisine, such as the Pepper Crusted Tuna Pretending to be a Filet Mignon Capped with Seared Duck Foie Gras and a Burgundy Butter Sauce. The Inn’s princely suites and opulent lounges transport one to an idyllic fantasy world.

The historic Town of Washington was founded in 1769 and was surveyed by George Washington. It is the quintessential American small town, serving as the seat of government for Rappahannock County. Many of the buildings date back to the late 1700s. Besides, there are art galleries, sophisticated shops, and theatres to visit.

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 with balconies and garden views.
