In November, 2011, we stayed at Foster Harris after having a fabulous Thanksgiving meal at the Inn at Little Washington. Little did we know that breakfast the next day would be equally satisfying! We had two large guest rooms, each with large comfortable king or queen beds and with large well appointed baths. The Inn has a lovely view of...

We've visited Washington, VA several times to dine at the Inn at Little Washington and always managed the dreadful drive back to Fairfax, Va in our food coma. But this year we decided to stay locally and found great reviews about the Foster Harris House just down the street from the restaurant. Our expectations were well exceeded - John and...

I wanted to find a quiet and inviting B&B for a surprise anniversary celebration, and after researching many options, I settled on, and had high hopes for the Foster Harris House. Our experience more than surpassed our expectations. The inn itself is clean and modern, yet also cozy and quaint. The rooms are beautifully decorated, featuring quality linens, a ridiculously...

We enjoyed one night at the Foster Harris House. John and Diane are excellent sources of information about everything in the area; we visited a few wineries that they recommended; and had a really nice stay after our evening at the Inn & Little Washington. The Inn is comfortable and updated, extremely clean; and the breakast was out of this...

Normally, I’m not a bed and breakfast type of person. Kitsch really isn’t my thing, and I want privacy when I’m on vacation. But we had dinner reservations at the Inn at Little Washington to celebrate my girlfriend’s 30th birthday, and that meant we had to spend the night in one of Washington’s many B&Bs. I first got the hint...

Visit date: 12/2 - 12/4/11. Just prior to our arrival, my husband had a serious allergic reaction to a horse we petted nearly an hour prior. John went out of his way to find a local doctor, but we ended up soaking his eye & waiting it out (it cleared up w/in 24 hrs). This B&B is not only perfect,...

We stayed at the B&B for my husband's birthday and dinner at the Inn at Little Washington. Our dinner reservations weren't until 9 PM and we were looking for cheese and crackers to hold us over. We bought a couple bottles of wine at the local shop and then asked Diane where we could find some snacks. As we were...

We travelled to Foster Harris House to celebrate a friend's birthday and have dinner at Inn at Little Washington. Finding this B&B was such a nice treat.

My husband and I took my sister for her 50th b'day celebration on this amazing trip. We absolutely loved the whole package. The owners and organizers are so pleasant and "happy" and thought of every detail. The cycling is challenging but rewarded with gourmet meals at the beginning and end of each day. The B&B is small and intimate and...

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
