I visited the Foster-Harris House for a weekend getaway in October with a friend and had such a great time that I returned the following weekend in November with my husband! Klaus and Giselle have put so much caring thought into every touch. When you arrive, you’ll find a personalized welcome note in your room. The rooms are in pristine condition, with very comfortable beds. Every night you will find giant fresh baked cookies in your room and bottles of water. The breakfasts (thanks, Chef Kendra who previously worked at the Inn at Little Washington!) are luxurious and Klaus presides over the dining room bringing smiles and delight to all. His gracious hospitality transforms the inn from upscale lodging to feeling like you are visiting longtime friends in their magnificent home. The inn itself is in a perfect location, within a short drive of Sperryville and many wineries and also within walking distance of the Inn at Little Washington and the bakery, restaurant and shops in Little Washington. If the weather is good, be sure to walk the grounds of the Inn at Little Washington - visit the llamas and sheep and the edible garden used by the Inn’s restaurant on one side of the road, and the separate formal garden across the street. Klaus can provide recommendations of places to visit and explore based on your preferences and his suggestions made our trip extra special. You simply can’t put a price on service and Klaus’s attention to every detail and making guests feel welcome is magnificent, and a natural byproduct of his long and prestigious career in the hospitality industry. Go stay and experience it all for yourself… and as for us, we’ll be back again for the third month in a row in December!

As newlyweds over 50, we were given the present of dinner at the Inn at Little Washington. Our friends agreed to join us and recommended that we stay at the Foster Harris House. It was a fabulous advice - an endorsement that I wish to pass on to all. The owners, Klaus and Gisele, couldn't have been more welcoming. Beyond the beauty of the house and the glorious room, they had set our room up with a personal note, red roses, champagne, and cookies. The House's lounge was a perfect place to share the wine with our friends. Although I never thought I'd eat again after dinner at the Inn, we were served a scrumptious four course breakfast. I am glad my husband was doing the driving as I could barely move! I strongly recommend you stay at the Foster Harris House. We are looking forward to doing so again!

We had the most wonderful 2-night stay at the Foster Harris House! The room was accommodating and cozy. The 4-course breakfasts were delicious and provided an opportunity to connect with Klaus and learn more about the area. We will certainly be back!

Klaus and Giselle run a wonderful little in located in Washington VA. Best breakfast ever! Great for an overnight if you eat at the Inn at Little Washington or for hiking in the Shenandoah. Top notch service, peaceful retreat.

A delightful experience made even better by Klaus who defines hospitality the way it was meant to be. As a guest you are treated by a warm welcome and the host's desire to make sure you are comfortable and attended to.
