The Inn at Little Washington Opens The Parsonage

WASHINGTON, VA—The Inn at Little Washington has opened The Parsonage, its campus’ most recent addition, bringing the total number of buildings to 16 and the number of guestrooms to 24.

The Parsonage, named for its proximity to Trinity Episcopal Church, is located across from The Inn’s restaurant. The restored Victorian house features 6,000 sq. ft. and six new guestrooms with fireplace and bay windows.

Chef and proprietor Patrick O’Connell collaborated with London designer Joyce Conwy Evans. The Parsonage reflects a lighter, more modern interpretation of The Inn’s English Country House aesthetic.

A former side porch has been turned into a Moorish-inspired glass-enclosed conservatory that serves as the Parsonage’s main entrance. The ceiling of the foyer has been tented in a green-striped fabric and the floor is a patterned Tunisian tile. An antique French lantern hangs in the center of the tent.

The building features a T-shaped center hall, symmetrical French doors leading out to a porch, William Morris tulip wallpaper, 1850s-era public spaces, stone chimneys and a side porch facing an enclosed garden with oaks, a smokehouse and a summer kitchen.

The guestrooms are individually decorated in a light-filled style with a palette of pastels, English fabrics and wallpapers. Bathrooms feature Waterworks tile and fixtures, grey Carrera marble vanities and Bulgari amenities.
