We drove from Norfolk to Little Washington, Va. for a big birthday to celebrate in dining @ Inn @ Little Washington. Lived in LW for 5 years on weekends as my husband is a painter and every corner is like France..painterly. We became friends with Walt and Susan Longyear, the innkeepers of Fairlea. A delightful, hard working couple with nothing but their guest's needs and pleasures as their focus. The driveway entrance is right off 211/ a winding road with hills, barn, cattle and horses in view. You are welcomed with a fire and a living room overlooking pastoral acreage. After a sumptuous dinner, we retired to a lovely room, state of the art/ brand new bath with quality craftsmanship showing. Cows mooing in the morning greeted the day for us. The breakfast so much more than we could eat. Met a lovely couple from Rio who were touring Virginia. The price @Fairlea is right. You will enjoy your hosts…they major in grand hospitality!!
