My Trip to Washington, VA: Fairlea Farm Bed & Breakfast

After that amazing meal, we went back to our bed and breakfast, Fairlea Farm, and slept really well. We woke up the next morning to a beautiful sunrise over the nearby hills. We dressed and went downstairs for breakfast. We were happily greeted by our host who had put out settings for us. Look at how lovely and country this is. Wow, I certainly was someplace other than NYC.
Before our meal started, we enjoyed some fresh juice, tea/coffee, and hot muffins served from a mini basket.

We also shared a plate of fresh fruit including oranges, cantaloupe, kiwi, and grapes. Along with the hot muffins, our host also made a banana bread that was incredible. Still warm, sweet, and flavorful. The soft butter just added the right touch of richness to it. I was already happy and didn't even have my main meal yet.
Our hot breakfast included a hot apple bread pudding with syrup, grits, and breakfast sausages. Again, really well made with the right amount of sugar, salt, and seasoning. However, it wasn't too heavy that it bogged me down for the car ride later. In fact, it was perfect. I really enjoyed it.
Fairlea Farm is the second bed & breakfast I've been to. And I'm happy to report that I was happily satisfied with this one. The place was clean, open, and fresh feeling. The room spacious and comfortable. The decor is country but warm. I would definitely go back without hesitation.

  1. How close is this place to Inn at Little Washington?

    1. Only a half mile away. Definitely walkable in daylight. Pitch dark at night (no street lights). And definitely only in comfy shoes (partially includes unpaved roads).

      There are closer bed & breakfasts but this is the furthest from the Inn but also the most affordable.

    2. Thanks! I definitely wouldn't walk (unfamiliar roads and all the things you mentioned), but it's good to be close in case you have a few glasses of wine at dinner, driving isn't too crazy.
