    Historical Traveler Reviews Heritage House Bed & Breakfast Washington

    A treasure discovered


    The temperature may have been cool that February week-end, but what a warm experience we had at Heritage House.

    Gary and Michelle provided a place of class, yet warm comfort, with what , to us, defines "Virginia hospitality."

    And what a fabulous breakfast, too!

    We indeed will return.

    Perfect in every way!!!


    We just came back from our valentine's Day date. Staying at the Heritage House is like visiting old friends. Michelle and Gary was the perfect host! The B& B is so cozy and warm. The room we stayed in felt like a get away cottage. They cooked us a delicious breakfast and when we came back from dinner at the "little Inn of Washington" they had turned town our bed with a yummy chocolate. They sure made our valentine's Day special. We cannot wait to go back again. Thanks Michelle and Gary!!!! s.kolber

    Loved the Innkeepers!


    We just spent a night at the Heritage House Bed and Breakfast on 2/12/05 and want to let you know what a wonderful experience it was. The house dates to 1836 and just its history is charming. And, the innkeepers, Michelle and Gary are a delight. We had such a lovely time conversing with them and the gourmet breakfast they served us was praise worthy. Our room was immaculate and charming, as was the downstairs liviing room and diniing room. We would recommend this lovely B&B to all. Its location in Washington, VA a block from the Little Inn is prime and the shopping nearby is delightful. Charlotte and Dick Eilbert

    Great stay!


    We spent our 40th anniversary at Heritage and had a great stay. The Innkeepers made us feel right at home as they shared the history of the B&B and the area. Highly recommended!

    Wonderful Bed & Breakfast


    Beautiful Bed and Breakfast within a 2 minute walk (in the snow!) to the Inn at Little Washington. The owners, Gary and Michelle, are very welcoming, warm and friendly, and are ready to offer advice about the area if you should want it. The house tself is warm and inviting, and very clean. Excellent bathrooms. And breakfast was a treat in itself.

    A Weekend with Friends


    We haved stayed at this B&B 3 times now, and those times have been wonderful. Gary & Michelle (the Owners), have become fast friends, as they are very approachable and love to talk. There is no pretending to be something that they are not. Their business is to provide suitable lodgings and prepare a lovely breakfast, as they always do. The rooms are very well decorated for the theme of the town, it being named for the first President. We feel truly at home there and will always make it a must stay when we can. Gary, while modest about his breakfasts, does a superb job baking fresh breads daily, and also offering some very good breakfasts. Sparky, the dog, is also a wonderful little creature and is very freindly and intelligent. Overall, they have done a superb job making us feelat home in their home, and would hands down reccomend it over any other business there.

    The Heritage House - A Lovely Bed & Breakfast in Washington, Virginia


    I just returned from a stay at the Heritage House in Washington, Virginia, a lovely bed & breakfast in the charming village where the renowned "Inn at Little Washington" is located. I was visiting a friend and enjoying a 3-day getaway, which included a much anticipated dinner at the world famous Inn at Little Washington restaurant, and my stay was wonderful.

    The Heritage House is a lovely place, which I would recommend to anyone. The owners are wonderfully warm and welcoming, a very hospitable couple who does everything to make you feel right at home. They offer complimentary water, juice, and beer in the refrigerator located in the dining room, as well as Port, for those who desire a night cap before retiring to their room. You are always welcome to relax in the common areas, reading or chatting with others.

    The rooms and bathrooms were very well furnished for a small bed & breakfast and extremely clean. The bed was very comfortable with nice fluffy pillows. Every detail was considered, including turning the covers down and leaving chocolates on your pillow in the evenings.

    For breakfast we dined in the charming dining room enjoying a delightful conversation with the owners, who prepared a delicious meal (eggs florentine, coffee, juice, tea, fresh fruits and baked items).

    You are given the key to your room upon arrival and are free to come and go at all hours, so it was very nice to feel independent in that way. I would certainly stay there again and recommend it to anyone.

    Friendly and helpful hosts


    My wife and I celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary by dining at the Inn at Little Washington in Washington, VA. Admitedly, we stayed at the Heritage House because it was a lot cheaper than staying at the Inn itself.

    Although we did not have great expectations, great expectations would have been more than met. We were very happy to find that the Hertiage House was owned and operated by a wonderful couple who had alot of good tips about eating at the Inn. The room we stayed in was beautiful, comfortable, and quaint. Michelle and Gary had a cute little dog name sparky that sat in the living room with us while we talked.

    Our dining experience at the Inn was better because of the tips that Michelle and Gary gave us. And Gary cooked a wonderful breakfast in the morning. My wife ate some delicious eggs flourentine (sp?) and I had a very good heart healthy breakfast (they were very accomodating about my diet).

    All in all it was a wonderful 5th anniversary. If you are planning on dining at the Inn at Little Washington, save your pennies and spend the night with Gary and Michelle at Heritage House Bed and Breakfast. You'll be more than glad you did.

    Excellent option


    great b&b -- perfect if you make dining reservations at the Inn in Little Washington (it is only a block away) ... and Gary (one of the innkeepers) makes a great breakfast .... highly recommended!

    A great overnight


    You say you'd like to have dinner at the Inn at Little Washington, but an overnight stay there is too cher for your budget. Well I think a great alternative is a little b&b one block down the street called the Heritage House. This past Saturday, Christmas, we were greeted by Gary, the owner, when we arrived. Right away we felt at ease with his manner, as he showed us to our accomodations on the second floor of this 19th century home. We had a beautiful view of the mountains and our room was immaculately prepared for us right on time for our 3pm arrival.

    After dinner at the wonderful Inn, we returned to find our bed turned down and a delicious chocolate on each of our pillows. Since the night was still early we settled into the living room in front of a warm open hearth, where we were joined by our host for some enjoyable conversation for the next hour. The next morning at 8:30 we were greeted to a wonderful breakfast of eggs florentine, home-made blueberry muffins and a magnificent pastry-puff filled with fruit and freshly-whipped cream. Two hours of conversation passed swiftly.

    This place was a real find and we heartily recommend it to everyone.

    Today we woke up at the early time of 6:15 in order to go to Busch gardens with Josh and Tyler! After the drive which we spent playing a movie game we got to Busch gardens and found there were a lot of great rides. There were shows but we were simply to lazy to walk over and find them. After a day of riding some big roller coasters in the heat (including Apollo's Chariot 8 times) we drove home (stopping for fast food) whilst purposefully driving each other insane for the ride ...

There was the 29-foot cascade, though it was barely a drip and then a short ways later, we came to a cliff overlook for Overall Run Falls. Well, we were supposed to be able to see the waterfall from here, but there wasn’t much to see. Due to the dry conditions of the summer, the waterfall was barely a trickle. But the hike ...
