The dairy room at The Inn at Little Washington's walls are covered in hand-painted blue and white Portuguese tiles with a bay that is covered in windows looking out on a beautiful garden. The Inn at Little Washington's kitchen is often referred to as the most beautiful kitchen in the world. Guests are invited to make reservations to be seated at the kitchen table - custom made in France. At this table, guests can see the cooking process behind each of their dishes.
One of The Inn at Little Washington's most exciting attractions is its wine cellar. The wine cellar offers more than 2,400 wines from some of the world's greatest wine regions. Many different types of wines are available to enhance guests' experience and match their wine to their meal. Bill Harris, director of wine, has spent years judging and discovering new wines from all around the world - most wines being exported from Europe seasonally to fill the cellar.
Reservations can be made online or by phone. The Inn at Washington wants all of its guests to be aware that because their restaurant is located in such a beautiful yet rural part of Virginia, they have minimal phone service. For almost a 30-mile radius, guests may have trouble getting service, or even using GPS. In the restaurant, however, calls can be transferred to guests, and voicemails are often taken.
The Inn at Washington is sure to astound your taste buds, and satisfy every food craving you might have.
