My wife and I just celebrated our 10th anniversary with the primary intent of dining at the Inn at Little Washington. With young kids at home it was only a one night trip so going in, we weren't overly concerned about our B&B experience. Fortunately our naivety didn’t backfire on us and in fact, our stay at the White Moose Inn proved an equally enjoyable highlight to the trip. The innkeeper was incredibly cordial upon our arrival and even had fresh-cut flowers from the garden waiting in our room for our anniversary (she had already proactively reached out earlier in the week to touch base and see if we were celebrating anything in particular). We were given a tour when we arrived and were immediately impressed with the finishes throughout the recently renovated property. You could definitely tell that a great deal of thought went into the contemporary design to make it cohesive, yet still respectful of the overall character of the historic town.
The happy hour – complete w/ Virginia wines & spirits – on the back porch was a perfect Friday treat to start the weekend. Coming off a dinner at the Inn at Little Washington one wouldn’t expect much at breakfast the next morning, but the assortment of items (quiche, fresh fruit & yogurt, coffee cake, etc. – not too heavy but not too light) was excellent. The fresh granola from a local bakery was wonderful as well. In addition to the innkeeper, the owners also were extremely welcoming and engaging. Their love of the area was well apparent (understandably so) and they were more than happy to provide recommendations of things to do or see in the area. At the same time, when my wife and I were ready to zone out (did I mention the young kids?) or just chat each other up, privacy, even in the common living/dining areas or back porch, was easy to be had. All in all it was a wonderful experience and we’d definitely go back.
