Perfect Getaway...The White Moose Inn

 
Weekend getaways are always a good idea. 
 
Short and sweet you have just enough time to discover a new town and enjoy the local food, shops and surroundings.  However many B & B's look like your grandmother's attic in a charming but overdone way.  This is not one of them!

It seems George Washington himself founded the town!
 
I recently discovered a chic getaway in Washington, Virginia 
thanks to Carol Joynt of the Washington Social Diary.... 
 
The White Moose Inn

Owned by Mai and Dan Abdo and described by one visitor as "South Beach meets Virginia" this contemporary B&B characterized by white washed floors and a fresh, modern vibe has garnered oodles of praise from  
 
"huge and cozy beds" 
 
to
 
"it's like going to your fabulous friend's country house...
 but even better"
 
Sounds like a great stay awaits!

 An adjacent, small cottage is available to rent and features a wood burning fireplace and private deck which faces the blue ridge mountains beyond.  Pictured below is the interior.  Pictured above is the façade of the cottage.

The rooms are all furnished similarly in a lodge-meets-the-Delano style.  White and gray mix with pops of cheery yellow and most rooms feature rustic exposed wood beams. 

One thing you won't find are ruffles and Victorian armoires. 
What you will find are many thoughtful details which include:
 
 features include an en-suite bath with shower and amenities by L’Occitane, a flat screen smart TV, complimentary Netflix, complimentary high-speed internet, Bluetooth transportable in-room music, high-speed USB port charging stations, cotton waffle weave robes, independent remote controlled heating and cooling system

In her post, Ms. Joynt mentioned Bluetooth compatable showerheads which play your own music while you bathe.  A perfect alternative to singing in the shower!

Ms. Joynt also recommends dining at the well known
Inn at Little Washington made famous by her good friend chef and owner, Patrick O'Connell - definitely worth the splurge for a fantastic meal.
