With just 18 guest rooms, Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star The Inn at Little Washington has been able to concentrate on making each one special. We love the rooms for their extravagant personalities, and as tricky as it is to pick a favorite, a few in particular won our hearts. Room 7, a superior room, has gorgeous green and gold draperies that rise 14 feet to the ceiling. It also has a balcony that sits above the center of the garden — an ideal spot to enjoy your morning coffee. Room 1, a junior suite, looks out onto the edge of the garden and offers a peaceful setting. The junior suites are a bit larger than the superior rooms, allowing for a sitting area comfortable and spacious enough for you to curl up with a good book.
But our favorite guest rooms at the Five-Star inn are the two bi-level suites, which are stunning in both the layout and décor. At the top of the stairs in the main house, these suites are as luxe as it gets in Northern Virginia. Sitting areas have beautiful canopies draped above the couches and elegant draperies flank the windows. The marble bathrooms have a deep soaking tub large enough for two and the bed, which is on the second level, looks out onto the sitting area below.
If you really want to do it up, consider booking the Presidential Cottage, which is really a two-bedroom home with ample lounging space (library, living room, dining room) and a private back garden.
