My husband and I stayed at this B & B, located about a block from the famed Inn at Little Washington, where we were having dinner on a Saturday night. The Foster Harris House, and it's owners were amazing, the room was beautiful, and the grounds were very relaxing. We had an excellent wine and cheese plate before heading off to our dinner, and enjoyed resting in the comfortable living room reading a book and playing scrabble.
Although the Inn at Little Washington is suppose to be one of the Nation's best restaurants, on this trip, I found the four-course breakfast at the Foster Harris House to be a much better meal than my dinner at the Inn. Fresh baked croissants, beautiful fruit parfaits, an unbelievable french toast, and a delicate tex mex inspired eggs benedict!! Truly delicious. And a special thank you to the owners, who were so friendly, and so helpful! Don't miss this great B & B.
