The Inn at Little Washington


Celia Sin-Tien Cheng

All the amenities of a Relais & Chateaux blended with country house charm makes The Inn at Little Washington one of the best retreats in the country. Five star accommodations and cuisine in the most relaxing setting makes this my favorite retreat.

My recent visit to The Inn at Little Washington was a phenomenal experience. Under the stewardship of the proprietor, Chef Patrick O’Connell, who truly understands the concept and meaning of hospitality, The Inn is a special place for anyone who comes to stay or dine.

An unforgettable meal paired with impeccable service, gorgeous setting and comfortable atmosphere, culminated in a night that I continue to relive and cherish. From the minute I walked through the front door of The Inn, I was in the capable hands of a team trained to predict my needs and provide service before I even asked. The staff’s every gesture and consideration is meant to make your stay more pleasant. And pleasant it was. Throughout my time at The Inn, one pleasant surprise built on another. And it is unequivocally this seamless precision that attracts a devoted following, as well as top food and hospitality accolades from around the world.
