The Inn at Little Washington is not easy to capture in words or pictures. Its magic is more about how the places makes you feel. For some The Inn is a romantic fantasy world far removed from the harsh realities of modern day life, for others it's a culinary oasis akin to visiting a Michelin starred restaurant in the European countryside. Some are surprised - and relieved - that The Inn doesn't take itself too seriously. Guests often remark that while the interiors could be called grand they are also whimsical and wonderfully comfortable.

For history lovers Washington, Virginia is one of the few unspoiled villages left in America. They say it hasn't changed much since George Washington first surveyed it and named the streets back in 1749. Whatever you're seeking rest assured that our staff will welcome the challenge of living up to all of your impossible expectations. We consider it our business to make dreams come true.

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 many with balconies and garden views.

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 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 late Craig Claiborne of The New York Times called it "the most magnificent inn I've ever seen, in this country or Europe, where I had the most fantastic meal of my life". Patrick's approach to cooking, while paying homage to the lawmakers of Classical French Cuisine, reflects a belief in "the cuisine of today", healthy, eclectic, imaginative, unrestricted by ethnic boundaries and always growing.
