We enjoyed our stay at the Foster Harris House. The rooms are well appointed and tastefully decorated. The breakfast was a treasure all unto its own. I would encourage anyone to stay there. It’s like taking a trip back in time. Our only regret was that our stay was to short.

Our only complaint about the Foster Harris House is that we could not stay longer. It is a lovely B&B with beautiful gardens and the best breakfast I've had in ages. The owners, John & Diane, were gracious and accommodating. And while I rarely mention the cleanliness of an inn (I assume it will be clean), the Foster Harris House was impeccably clean. All in all, it exceeded our expectations and we had a lovely stay. We will return!

My wife and I joined another couple, married on the same day as we, to celebrate our mutual 40th wedding anniversaries with dinner at the Inn at Little Washington in May, 2000. We chose to stay at the Foster-Harris house and enjoyed both the dinner and our stay greatly. So much so, in fact, that on the occasion of our mutual 45th anniversaries in May, 2005 we repeated the visit to both the Inn and the Foster-Harris house. The meal at the Inn was predictably outstanding; the stay at Foster-Harris even better than before! Changes in ownership and in the up-grading of the bathrooms as well as an oustanding gourmet breakfast prepared by the delightful and helpful proprietors, John and Diane MacPherson, made this anniversary celebration even more wonderful than the previous one. Perhaps we'll make our next visit next year instead of waiting another 5 years!
