Dear Diane and John, We owe you a belated and warm Thank You for another memorable stay at the Foster Harris Inn. Your place remains the same "Chic boutique Inn in a bucolic setting" that we raved about in our June 15, 2014 Trip Advisor review (see text below). Ever since that very first stay, we returned time and again,...

My husband (then-boyfriend) and I stayed at Foster Harris House years ago in April 2010 (I think). The owners were so wonderful and the breakfast was one of the best I have ever had! The room was so warm, comfortable, relaxing, and gorgeous! The shower was outstanding! Little Washington is so quaint and charming. We loved the little shop in...

We really enjoyed our time at the Foster Harris House two weekends ago! Our room was comfortable and nicely decorated, free of the clutter you find in many B&Bs. We enjoyed the backyard views of Shenandoah from a pair of comfortable Adirondack chairs with a nice bottle of wine from a shop in town. John and Diane were the perfect...

Dear John and Diane, thank you so much for making our anniversary such a special time for the second time. The lovely room and the amazing dinner were both perfect! Everything about the stay was perfect, from the first dinner course to the breakfast dessert the next morning, every bite of every dish you created was delicious. The only thing...

We joined John and Diane once again this past Saturday to celebrate out wedding anniversary as we have for the past 3 years. I cannot begin to fathom the way in which John continues to come up with such fantastic, unique dishes for over 3 years. It is always a treat to see what is coming out of the kitchen,...

Gosh! You absolutely amazed us. Never have we enjoyed a meal more. The food was elegant, delicious, colorful, and hit all the right notes. The setting was gentle and beautiful. Your attention to us felt warm and happy. We went over our top five meals of all time afterwards, and that's right, you are now at the top of the...

We invited four friends to join us for a small celebration dinner at Foster Harris House. It was wonderful in all respects. The meal was exceptional--excellent courses, well-balanced, beautifully presented, very well paced, and perfectly prepared. Additionally, Diane and John are very engaging hosts. John explained each course while Diane made sure that everyone was well cared for. We highly...

Dining at the Foster Harris house was such a special experience for us, as we rarely get out without our two small children. They made the night so special for my husband's birthday, and the food was delicious. The wine parings were amazing as well. We recommend this to anyone who wants to have a super special evening out!

My wife and I decided to do a weekend "babymoon" to Washington, VA before the baby comes. We live in Maryland so this was only a couple of hours of drive for us. We've heard a lot about the food at The Inn, so I booked a dinner there. We considered staying at The Inn also, but the price was...

We stayed two nights at the Foster Harris House and couldn't have been happier with our decision. Impeccable food and service, and John and Diane MacPherson are excellent hosts. Warm, attentive and welcoming are the words to describe them and the inn. The meals were all delicious and well thought out, and we can't wait to visit again! We were...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Just steps from the world-renowned Inn at Little Washington in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, the Foster Harris House offers comfortable, refined country inn accommodations in an enchanting setting. Each queen bed guest room has exquisitely soft linens, spa robes, and a private bath with a rainfall shower. Included with your stay is a lavish, unhurried four-course breakfast. Dinner at the Foster Harris House unites the elements that inspire Chef John's culinary muse - fruits and vegetables from the rich soil of Rappahannock County, surprising flavors, bold splashes of color and family traditions - with each plate artfully composed to entice the eyes and the appetite. The intimate dining room of only 10 seats and just one seating per night allows for an unhurried and personal dining experience. ... more   less
