Luxury beyond expectation!

We spent a short vacation visiting DC and Virginia, ending with our stay at Stafford House as we were going to fly out from Dulles. Having driven from Lexington over scenic roads, avoiding the major roads, we arrived around 8 p.m. to be welcomed, and showed to this magnificent room with an even more impressive bathroom! We will come back and adjust our schedule to give us the time necessary to enjoy all the possibilities offered at Stafford House, like the sauna and jacuzzi. Thank you Donna!

A Wonderful Experience

4.6 on June 13, 2016

Every 5 years we treat ourselves for our Anniversary to a really nice trip, so for our 45th we chose a Road Trip to Fairfax Virginia. We checked Online Reviews and found The Stafford House, the reviews were great and the location also. Upon arriving we met the Owner Donna who has such a comfortable laid back charm that we knew this was a good choice. We had reserved the “smaller” ground floor room, it is anything but small there is a large Bed / Sitting Room with a fireplace and large Flat Screen TV a Table and two chairs (this was also our Dining Table for Breakfast. The Bath Room is also large with a big walk in shower (large enough for an adventurous two) and a separate Claw Foot Soaking Tub. We stayed three nights and had three delicious Home Made Breakfasts delivered to us on an attractive Cart by Donna the Chef, day one was Chocolate Chip Pancakes with Fresh Fruit, Juice & Coffee, day two was Scrambled Eggs, Bacon, Fresh Fruit and a warm muffin, juice & Coffee, day three was Oatmeal Belgian Waffles, Fresh Fruit, juice & coffee, these hearty breakfasts kept up going all day. Donna was a font of information about Dining and Tourism and she asked about our day what our plans were and helped with suggestions. Oh and the Bed, it is so comfortable that for a change I wasn’t looking forward to getting Home to my own bed. The Stafford House, what a wonderful experience.

LOVED this bed and breakfast

Loved staying at the Stafford House. Breakfast wheeled into each morning is something that I never knew I needed in my life until it happened! Now that's something I'll look for on all of my future Bed & Breakfast stays! Having the fireplace in the bedroom is what caused me to book it and that along with the claw foot tub made this stay absolutely super!

Anniversary Stay

My fiancé and I stayed a night in the suite at the Stafford House for our three year anniversary. The owner, Donna, welcomed us as we arrived and showed us to our room. The room was very warm and welcoming. The bed was very comfortable. We enjoyed the sauna, jacuzzi and large open bathroom. Breakfast was top notch and right on time. The stay was very pleasant and relaxing. Donna was very helpful in recommending things to do in the area. We made a trip to The Winery at Bull Run for some wine tasting. We then took a short walk in the neighboring park to see the Stone Bridge that runs over Bull Run Creek. Our stay was very enjoyable and highly recommended.

Wonderful wedding night

My husband and I stayed here for our wedding night. We wanted a more intimate and more comfortable place to spend the night than a hotel room. We were very pleased with the luxurious accommodations, especially with the huge, beautiful bathroom, including amenities. The Stafford House staff was very flexible with our arrival times (as it was late at night following our reception), and delivered breakfast at the time of your choosing. We would love to come back for a longer stay!

Anniversary Stay

Surprised my husband with a visit to Washington DC, our stay at the Stafford house was fantastic, only 30-40 minutes from Washington. The place was peaceful and big. The town of Fairfax had a great small town feeling. The food was great and our hostess Donna was very friendly and non intrusive. I would definitely stay here again if I had the opportunity, and I would recommend to everyone. Our stay here was better than any hotel stay we have every had.

We drove from Roanoke, VA after a wedding to visit family and do business on Monday. The B&B was so inviting and very conveniently located near restaurants and shopping. Breakfast in our room was better than ever and so efficient for our departure. We will definitely return.

A perfect B&B

The Stafford House was a wonderful place to stay. The Suite is the room you want, it came with a Jacuzzi, sauna, and massive room including a woodburning fireplace. Donna is such a wonderful host and treated us like royalty. I highly recommend this B&B.

A wonderful stay. Quaint, quiet, romantic, relaxing. A perfect night.

Can't wait to come back!

We stayed in the larger suite and it was amazing! I didn't want to leave for dinner. The pictures of this place do not do it justice. The jacuzzi tub is the size of a mini swimming pool and the bathroom is as large as most bedrooms! The owner was very nice and professional, and the breakfast she cooked was out of this world! Never have I had such service and enjoyed myself at a bed and breakfast. We are already planning our next trip!
