Inn at Little Washington Wins Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star Award

The Inn on New Year's Eve, 2015 - all photo by Joanie Ballard

Our shop & gallery is located steps away from the Inn at Little Washington, here in the small town of Washington, VA. We have been in business here since 1997, and the Inn since 1978. We have watched the transformation of some of the town buildings near the Inn, the Christmas light shows, red carpets, a Hollywood search light one year, the addition of llamas and chickens, herb gardens, fountains, luxury guest houses and more. We've even eaten there a few times. :)

Businesses in our small town have received numerous accolades over the years, but a special award was granted today to The Inn at Little Washington.  Forbes Media announced that for the 25th consecutive year The Inn has earned the prestigious Five Star Award, making it the longest running Five Star restaurant in the world. The hotel has also received 5 Stars for the 24th year in a row.  

Congratulation Patrick O'Connell, such a wonderful and deserved award!
