My daughter and I visited Lexington to see Washington & Lee and had a perfect stay with Russ and Mary Stuart at 502 South Main. The house and room were beautiful and comfortable, furnished tastefully and decorated with local art. Our every need (and wish!) was anticipated-- even the beverages in our room were our favorites! After dinner at Bistro... More

502 is an amazing stay! We've stayed twice now and recommend to everyone we know visiting Lexington. Russ and Mary Stuart are a pure pleasure - attentive, hospitable, and helpful all without being over bearing. And the breakfast - oh my gosh! The house is beautiful, the location is great, and the hosts are exceptional. Stay with them - you... More

My husband and I recently stayed at Russ and Mary Stuart's beautiful inn, 502 South Main in Lexington VA on a road trip to MD. Of course, Lexington VA is a quaint, historic town, home to VMI and Washington & Lee University which makes it a lovely place to visit..great restaurants and shops as well. What truly made the trip... More

We cannot say enough good things about our experience here. We have stayed in many B&B's around the country and 502 South Main at the top of the list. The Inn is warm and comfortable with beautiful furnishings. The Innkeepers are engaging, knowledgeable and fun to be around....felt like being with old friends. Lexington is a charming town and there... More

This was our first visit to Virginia, and eventhough I have been to many B&B before, none of them were quite like this one. Beautifully decorated for Christmas, spotlessly clean with every detail of comfortable and homelike stay taken care of. There was always somebody available to take care of our needs, and we were being spoiled with delicious breakfasts... More

We stayed two nights here this past weekend and were so delighted with everything about this B&B! The room was fantastic - the pictures do not do them justice. Very quiet and peaceful. The living room was the perfect gathering spot after a long day of driving. Very close to great restaurants - Russ was the perfect host. Would love... More

We came to Lexington for the VMI-Citidel football game. The Stuarts were the perfect hosts. I would highly recommend staying with them. The room we stayed in was spacious and well appointed. The breakfast was excellent.

Together with two friends, my wife and I (all from the UK) stayed at Mary Stuart's lovely B&B in October. Our host could not have been more helpful, and the rooms were spotlessly clean and very well appointed. Breakfast was delicious, if a little unusual (quiche) - though I'm pretty sure we could have had anything we wanted. Lexington itself... More

My husband and I spent two nights in the South room earlier this month on the recommendation of a friend who has very high standards, and she was right. Such gracious hospitality in a lovely and spotless setting, and oh, those pistachio shortbread cookies! We enjoyed visiting with other guests over a sumptuous breakfast one morning, and Mary Stuart thoughtfully... More

Our October visit to this charming B&B was everything we had hoped for; the hosts were friendly and welcoming and the rooms were well appointed and comfortable. No froufrou decor to be found! Only lovely, tasteful surroundings from top to bottom! We would definitely stay here again!
