Guest accommodations at The Inn at Little Washington consist of 24 bedrooms and suites created by Londan stage and set designer Joyce Evans, whose contributions have become part of her life’s work. Furnished with pieces shipped all the way from England, the Inn has a wide range of accommodations, from well-appointed bedrooms to the luxurious two-story suites with balconies and breath-taking views. All accommodations are distributed across different buildings.
There are six luxurious rooms in The Parsonage, a 6,000 sq. ft. Victorian style house designed way back in the 1850’s. It has since undergone renovations and has been restored to the beautiful house it is today. The Parsonage got its name for its close proximity to the Trinity Episcopal Church. Aside from cosy fireplaces, the rooms in The Parsonage have bay windows that overlook the village.
The Mayor’s House is one of the oldest structures in the area. In fact, it has been confirmed that parts of the cottage date back to the 1740s. This was, in fact, the residence of a former mayor of Washington. It has a formal sitting area with a gas fireplace, while the bedroom features a king sized four-poster bed and a wood burning fireplace. The blue and white bathroom has hand-painted Portuguese tiles, a double vanity, whirlpool tub, and a separate shower. Just outside is a walled garden where guests can enjoy their afternoon tea.
Fronting Main Street is the Gamekeeper’s Cottage, which used to be a simple appendage of the Mayor’s House. This romantic 1740’s suite comes with an outdoor dining pavilion where guests can enjoy their breakfasts with a wonderful morning view. Guests will feel like they are on a safari thanks to the nearby natural surroundings. Although the cottage has undergone renewals, it still maintains its rustic feel. Many would think of it as a grown-up’s tree house with all the amenities of a modern home.
Just a stone’s throw from the inn’s main building is the Claiborne House, a 3,600 sq. ft. cottage that overlooks the garden. This cottage with a two-story veranda has two bedrooms, two baths, a living room, a media room, and a dining room. What make the Claiborne House more luxurious are the amenities that come with the place, including: White and red wine; Salumi plate with cheese; A jar of fresh baked cookies; Peanuts, fruit, and granola bars; An entire refrigerator filled with water and soda; A selection of liquors and a collection of flower arrangements.
