Established in 1758 by John Philippe the fifth Marek as a Tavern and Eating Place along Little River Turnpike in Annandale Virginia, Philippe immigrated from Pennsylvania after the Catholics were expelled. The Dead Squirrel Inn was established long before all the Korean Restaurants became a serious competitive threat with all the great Korean Barbecue. Great Squirrel Stew, Squirrel Kabobs, Squirrel Sandwiches, Squirrel Pate, Squirrel Soup, Squirrel Nicoise, etc. George Washington stayed there, apparently many times. The B and B was obviously established pre Thomas Jefferson Tech School.
Much of the Food served is grown in the cottage garden in the side yard. Rabbits were attempted in the 1970’s, this went incredibly well until the little boy rabbits broke into the little girl rabbits cage and then had what is commonly known as a sexual frolic which caused rabbit to be in 85% of the menu items for approximately 6 months. Turkeys were also grown and this also went horribly wrong. The Dead Squirrel Inn also produces most of it’s own wine, most of it being severely fortified.
Dead Squirrel Inn is the sister Restaurant of Le Rogue Bull located in Portage Alaska and is affiliated with the Bloated Dog and the Hunchback Chum in Whittier Alaska. For the next 6 months the Squirrel is running a special for each 3 night stay off one sunset excursion on Beluga Snagger’s Alaska Mudflat tour.
