LDPR announces an exciting new account: The Inn at Little Washington — the iconic, renowned, and refined 23-guest room Relais & Chateaux property located in the foothills of Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains.
Just over an hour drive from D.C., and led by the acclaimed Chef & Owner Patrick O’Connell, the experiential luxury retreat boasts the only 3-star Michelin restaurant in the Washington DC metro area and is the longest tenured Forbes Five-Star and AAA Five Diamond Restaurant in the world. In November 2021, the property expanded to open the all-day café, Patty O’s Café and Bakery. Serving morning pastries, terrific burgers, ham sandwiches, and French Onion soup, the restaurant shines in delivering approachable dining options without compromising on quality.
Patrick O’Connell, a native of Washington, DC, is a self-taught chef who pioneered a refined, regional American cuisine in the Virginia countryside. In 1978, Patrick opened The Inn at Little Washington in a former garage in the tiny town of Washington, VA. Patrick and The Inn have gone on to enjoy worldwide recognition and regularly host celebrities, politicians, and culinary enthusiasts. The Inn’s twenty-three guest rooms and suites are sumptuous hideaways created by Joyce Evans, a London stage and set designer, for whom The Inn has become a life’s work. All guest room reservations include a welcome cocktail upon arrival, afternoon tea, house breakfast in the dining room, complimentary valet parking and a guaranteed dining reservation each evening. Each luxuriously appointed guest room features flat screen televisions, high-speed wireless Internet access, Bulgari bath products, and 24-hour room service.
Throughout its long and colorful history, The Inn at Little Washington has provided a fairytale setting for countless weddings, anniversaries, engagements, retirements, birthdays and corporate events. Guests can choose from a variety of venues including our presidential cottage, historic ballroom, Field of Dreams, and the Parsonage Garden.
