Our 6 nights were exceptional, and we send our warm thanks to both Klaus and Gisele Peters for making the Foster Harris B&B such a brilliant home for experienced travelers like us. - The song "It's a beautiful World", comes to my mind while writing this review. Klaus Peters and his lovely wife, Gisele - are the most extraordinary couple! When you arrive to the Foster Harris House in Washington, Virginia, you can expect a sensory overload. Klaus's hand in every detail is very evident, and his professional experience and appreciation for his community is definitely mixed in with your stay at this B&B. My husband and I were in need of a peaceful place to bring back the laughter in our lives - and what we experienced was a relaxed atmosphere in an area that is filled with antiquities and Virginia history. Not to mention, it is located only a short two blocks away from the Inn at Little Washington. Klaus is responsible for orchestrating a marvelous 4 course breakfast at the beginning our your day, which is truly a culinary experience. Afterwards you were set loose to explore the countryside and all its nearby attractions. My love and thanks to both Klaus and Gizele Peters for making the Foster Harris B&B such a brilliant home for us. Royal and Pamela Rowe ”
