From the comfortable and charming Suite to the delicious 4-course breakfast, the Foster Harris House welcomed us and gave us truly 5-star treatment. We thank the owners, Diane and John, for their outstanding hospitality and careful consideration of our needs. What an unforgettable visit!

Diane & John were attentive to our every need. Our first evening dinner was spent at the Inn at Little Washington which, of course, was fantastic. Our second evening dinner (also,...

My husband and I stayed at the Foster Harris B&B to celebrate our birthdays for a long weekend (4 nights). We both needed to get away for some quality time and relaxation.

Bonnie and I returned to the Foster Harris house with our good friends who we had encouraged to come along. We had a phenomenal time and truly enjoyed every aspect of the trip including the other guests. The biggest problem we have is the fact that it is a long drive from Philadelphia to get there. We gladly make the...

My wife and I stayed a weekend for their "Tour d'Epicure" Wine and Bike Tour. Our stay was nothing short of awesome! First, the owners Diane and John are fantastic.

This was our second stay here - last time was in spring 2011 - and we remembered why we loved the place so much. The breakfast was even better than last time. It started with yogurt parfait with fresh fruit and homemade granola. Next up were cherry coconut scones. The coconut added a crunchy texture that was delicious. The piece...

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
