5 Great Inns for Foodies

by Kate Parham

Washington, Virginia

Nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains, the Inn at Little Washington is the first inn to ever to receive AAA's 5 Diamond Award for both dining and accommodation. The 34-year-old spot recently added a farmer-in-residence to its team, who converted 8,000 square feet of lawn into a garden offering seven varieties of cherry tomatoes, Swiss chard, cippolini onions, fava beans and 25 varieties of microgreens. Along with a new flock of sheep and a chicken coup, the inn also introduced a roundtrip, 18-passenger luxury coach transportation service taking guests to and from downtown D.C. for $100 per person, including champagne. The holidays are a particular treat here, as chef/owner Patrick OConnell not only decks the halls with boughs of holly, but also applies his unique twist to traditional holiday favorites—think carpaccio of herb-crusted baby lamb with caesar salad ice cream.
