My wife and I spent three nights here on a recent getaway. The layout gives you the third floor to yourself, and there is also a second floor sitting room. The proprietor, Marie Buckley, could not have been more welcoming and helpful. In addition to the varied and excellent breakfasts, she sprung on us several pleasurable little surprises, gastronomic and...

Quiet comfortable place close to the hustle and bustle of DC. Marie was wonderful at sending us off with an excellent, filling breakfast that carried us well into the afternoon. Her hospitality and friendliness makes you feel very welcome. This is a great place to stay!

We enjoyed our stay at the Gatsby's B&B. The room was small but very clean and had all the amenities that you would need. The breakfast was over the top! Delicious and beautifully presented. The B&B is within walking distance of Old Town Alexander.

Marie is a fabulous hostess! Breakfasts were different and delicious. If you needed guidance as to where to eat and not to eat, Marie was informative. The location is a great spot and much to do.

Gatsby's house was the perfect place for 2 couples. We shared the third floor, with 2 bedrooms and shared bath. Really comfortable well appointed rooms. Marie was helpful from the start, and made us feel right at home. Recommended great restaurants. Marie prepared a wonderful breakfast for us, and we were on our way to Mt Vernon. Thanks again, Marie!

Marie was so helpful from the moment I contacted her to inquire about her B&B. She made our first trip to Alexandria a memorable one. She allowed us to check in early so we could get a head start to DC for the cherry blossoms - she even provided us with metro cards to save us time with our travel....
