Located just 70 miles west of the nation’s capital in Northern Virginia, The Inn at Little Washington is tucked away from all the hustle and bustle of busy city life. The small town — and we mean small — of Washington, Virginia, just may be the tiniest county seat you’ve ever heard of. Touted “the first Washington of them all,” this rural Virginia town is home to less than 200 people and the gorgeously historic The Inn at Little Washington.
In fact, young George Washington himself surveyed the site of this town in July 1749 and the town limits are the same as they were 250 years ago. As you drive into the quaint town of Washington, off Route 211, you can’t miss The Inn at Little Washington considering it lies at the intersection of Main and Middle streets.
Nicknamed “Little Washington” to avoid confusion with the larger metropolis just east of the town, this county seat will not only charm you with its adorable plantation style homes but also with its scenery. Situated at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains, you won’t be short of photo ops during your stay at this Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel.
