We had the most wonderful stay at Mt Vernon Bed & Breakfast. Keith is host of this wonderful establishment, and what a host at that!! We stayed in the Cleopatra Room which was clean, spacious and well appointed. The bed was incredibly large and comfortable and the bathroom was also very generous in size, in fact large enough to also house a spa bath in addition to a shower. The room was charming with plenty of light and character. Upon arrival we were greeted with a huge smile and a welcome glass of wine or beer whilst being shown around the room and its facilities. But the absolute highlight of our stay was the magnificent breakfast served each morning at 8.30am around a beautifully set communal table. It's such a great experience to meet fellow guests and travellers from around the world and to compare travel notes in a friendly environment. The breakfast was absolutely delicious too with plenty of variety. We started with a small fruit plate as a starter followed by banana and coconut pancakes with maple syrup and/or fresh herb sprinkled scrambled eggs, freshly brewed coffee and fresh juice. There's also plenty of room to sit and read or relax in a lovely sitting room at the front of the house. We loved our stay at Mt Vernon and will definitely be visiting Keith and his staff again when next in Washington DC. We can't recommend this B&B highly enough - sometimes words just don't seem to say enough.
