Making 50 Fabulous Thanks to The Inn at Little WashingtonPosted: January 17, 2012
Yes, the big number arrived yesterday. It’s a little hard to stomach, but the Hub made it much easier to face with a splurge trip to The Inn at Little Washington. For years, my dear friend A has wistfully described this Virginia treasure as the most desirable of escapes. With only a single night to spare, the two hour backroads drive from Richmond made for a perfect getaway.
Well known by D.C. insiders who are only an hour away from the cellularly-remote hamlet of Washington, Virginia, highly acclaimed chef Patrick O’Connell‘s Inn is nestled in the Blue Ridge mountains, but don’t let its rural location fool you. It offers tasteful opulence and the finest cutting edge American Cuisine. Even before we arrived, the warm and professional staff was preparing for my birthday celebration.
Starting with an upgrade to a beautiful loft suite, everyone at this Relais & Châteaux property made sure that we were pampered during our entire stay. While the primary focus at The Inn is on the amazing food, comfort and luxury in the room has not been overlooked. With everything and more that you would expect at a Five Diamond and Five Star restaurant and inn, my new decade has started in style. How can I bemoan such a big number when it was so decadently recognized at this paragon of hospitable excellence?
