Just wanted to share what a wonderful stay we had at Gatsbys Huse on King Street in Alexandria, VA. Maries attention to deail was exquisite...fresh flowers in the bthroom and lounge area and on the table at breakfast, fresh fruit, orange juice and puff pastry shells for the eggs, bacon with fresh greens as well. A truly wonderful experience.

Comfortable and Inviting!

My recent stay at Gatsby's House was a delight. My room was warm and cozy, the food was delicious and Marie made me feel right at home. The location is great - quiet and peaceful, and an easy walk to local shopping and restaurants. I'll be back to stay with Marie in the future.

My wife and I have stayed in a number of excellent B&Bs over the years in several countries and we have never been so pleased with our stay in Gatsby House. The property and the landlady are both charming and welcoming, the location in Old Town was perfect. We felt like V I Ps with the excellent food and the care that was taken to make sure our stay was made as good as it gets!!!! We have no hesitation in recommending the Gatsby house for your stay in Washington DC. Thank you Marie Jeff and Dawn

We just got back home from a trip to DC and this is the FOURTH time we have stayed with Marie at Gatsby's!!! We just feel like family and the room is so charming and inviting. She has the guest quarters on the top floor and we basically live in a world of our own up there. Her garden out back is lovely. We absolutely love staying there. Highly recommended - very highly!
