Nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains only 90 minutes from Washington, D.C., The Inn at Little Washington has called to travelers and diners for more than 40 years, but never more loudly than now. The Inn has earned the coveted AAA Five Diamond rating for both the restaurant and accommodations (31 consecutive years for the restaurant, 30 consecutive years for the inn), setting itself a world apart from other properties. Couple the Five Diamond status with their three Michelin stars and you have an inn and restaurant unlike any other. The Inn, comprised of 23 bedrooms and suites across the inn, as well as six cottages and houses, pushes beyond luxury to become a true escape for guests who can lose themselves in the haute decor and sumptuous bedding. At the restaurant a trio of chefs’ tasting menus — including a vegetarian tasting — challenge diners with rich dishes like tuna in black truffle vinaigrette, herb-crusted lamb carpaccio and trompe l’oeil desserts.
