We stayed at 502 for two nights in May. We had a lovely welcome with freshly cooked cookies and iced tea. Our room was superb as are the common areas. Breakfast was delicious. 502 is in a nice location, an easy walk into Lexington.

As an avid fan of B&Bs, I booked this room a year in advance to attend our daughter's W&L graduation. Although the proprietors were out of town attending their daughter's wedding when we stayed at the B&B, the substitute "inn keeper", Karen, was fantastic. We stayed four nights and the breakfast each morning was spectacular. The B&B was exceptionally clean,... More

We have a son at W&L and have been to Lexington numerous times. This place is great. The owners are very friendly and attentive. The house is neat, well furnished, and attractive. Our room was large with a nice sitting area and very comfortable poster bed. The location is another plus -- it is an easy walk to the restaurants... More

502 South Main is even lovelier inside than its gracious external grounds. The downstairs common areas take you back to a time of opulence and beauty, inviting guests who arrived as strangers to leave as friends. Our room was delightfully decorated and had every amenity we could need, including climate control and our own Keurig machine! Our innkeeper, Karen, lovingly... More

Our weekend at the 502 South Main was everything we imagined. The hosts, Mary Stuart and Russ, are gracious and welcoming and attended to our every need. Mary's breakfasts were beautifully presented and very tasty! The room was spacious, beautifully decorated, and exceptionally comfortable. We especially enjoyed the heated towel rack. The B&B is located within walking distance of churches... More

My wife and I enjoy vacations where you have the option to walk to everything. 502 is well located in Lexington. Rooms are well organized and furnished, breakfast was great and special requests accepted. Great sense of history and area. Nice job. Russ is a VMI graduate.

Our 2-day stay at 502 S. Main made our visit especially delightful. The hosts went out of their way to make sure all went well regarding restaurants, reservations, sites, etc., and treated us more as old friends than guests. The very comfortable and beautiful guest rooms have every amenity one could reasonably expect (including large bathrooms) and the breakfasts are... More

This bed and breakfast had amazing service and very kind people. The breakfast was wonderful: it was fresh and they gave me many great options for food to choose from. Also i got to choose my breakfast time. As for the bed part, also great, with nice rooms and a wonderful bathroom in each one. Also, complementary snacks and drinks... More

We had a fabulous stay at 502 South Main while in Lexington for my law school class reunion. Our room was beautiful and perfectly appointed. The breakfasts were amazing. The location is also perfect to stroll through beautiful Lexington. We will definitely be back for another stay!

Unfortunately, we only had one night to enjoy all that 502 South Main offers, but that was plenty enough to bring us back for more. We've stayed at many a B&B over the years and this truly was one of the most welcoming, warm & comfortable homes. You couldn't ask for more gracious hosts. We have a daughter starting at... More
