Hope & Glory Inn Chesapeake Heaven VIVA Tysons Magazine (pages 122 &123)

“The fabled Hope & Glory Inn…

Delightful owners Dudley and Peggy Patteson have designed a living dream, an inimitable romantic escape.

Chef Meseret, fluent in English, Amharic from her native Ethiopia, French, and Italian, sang us the “Coquelicot” song in French, and we all joined in for “Le Pont d’Avignon.”

No nuance is overlooked, down to the marine-inspired Gilchrist & Soames Spa Therapy detoxifying sea kelp shampoo, moisturizing sea moss conditioner, relaxing sea fennel body lotion, and exfoliating sea salt soap.

Mary (breakfast server) said it best. “I love to see the guests come, but I hate to see & ’em leave.” Well fret not, dear Mary, just like the migratory coastal birds that fly back to the Bay each spring, everyone is certain to return to the Hope & Glory. If not, they may well be given Detention. And we wouldn’t want that, now would we?”
