The House is charming, the service is fantastic, the bicycle rides were a little hilly but the scenery is absolutely...

My wife and I have stayed in many B&Bs throughout the U.S. and in Europe. Not many can boast the talents of a gourmet chef like the Foster Harris House. Chef/owner John Macpherson cooks three course breakfasts with presentations similar to what you will find at the very best restaurants. Fresh fruit and locally-sourced products are featured in the meals....

We recently stayed two nights at the Foster Harris House in Washington, Va. The rooms, food and service were outstanding. Owners John and Diane MacPherson could not have been more accomodating. We rode bikes through some of the most beautiful countryside I have ever seen. Excellent value for money. Highly recomend.

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
