WASHINGTON, VA, September 12, 2019 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Over 250 years ago, George Washington laid the five-by-two block town Washington, VA upon falling in love with the location nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. This town did not become the capital of the United States, but took on the nickname Little Washington, and pulls together the rich history, picturesque landscape, and quaint ambiance of the region. It has become a tourist destination for travelers looking for quality over quantity in their getaway.
For its size, Little Washington boasts fine shops and galleries, historic architecture, hiking for all fitness levels, and some of the best fine dining restaurants on the East Coast, with only 150 permanent residents. It was the perfect location for Klaus and Gisele Peters to open a bed and breakfast, the capstone to Klaus' decades-long career in hospitality.
"When my wife Gisele and I opened our Bed and Breakfast in Little Washington, it was a lifelong dream fulfilled," says Klaus Peters, co-owner of luxury bed and breakfast and fine dining restaurant the Foster Harris House.
The couple set up shop next to the historic Inn at Little Washington, offering guests a comfortable and luxurious stay at the country inn. A four-course breakfast is included with the stay, and the Foster Harris House also offers gourmet seven-course dinners and wine pairings prepared by award-winning chef Jose De Brito. Always returning to quality over quantity, the restaurant offers limited seating for just up to 10 guests, dining together at 7 pm sharp.
"To us, hospitality means catering to our guests' every need to provide a customized experience," says Klaus. "This way, we develop meaningful relationships with our guests."
The Peters' flavor of intimate hospitality resonates with their guests. TripAdvisor.com reviewer Michele P writes about her experience staying at the Foster Harris House, "The house was wonderful and the hosts even better. We felt welcomed as if by friends."
"Our room was perfectly decorated and delightful. The breakfast was delicious, creative and abundant!" says reviewer Lindaloo23 on TripAdvisor following her stay at the Foster Harris House. "Their warmth and hospitality were incredible!"
