Why would anyone stay in an ordinary chain hotel, when you can stay in an amazing B&B? Russ and Mary Stuart couldn’t have been more pleasant. The rooms are amazing, and not overdone like some other B&B's. Great reception, great service, and great location. I was treated like family, and it was the little touches that you often don't find,... More

Owners couldn't have been nicer, more helpful and accommodations were first rate. Unfortunately had to catch an early plane so sadly missed what I'm sure was a delicious breakfast. Lexington is always such a treat to visit. Why spoil the experience staying anywhere else? I'll definitely be back.

I have never taken the time to write a review; but must for 502 South Main. I can not recommend it highly enough. The rooms are beautiful and have everything a traveler might need. The Inn is in the Historic part of town, convenient to W&L and VMI. Russ and Mary Stuart could not have been more welcoming. My daughter... More

A high percentage of the reviews on this helpful website are very accurate and harshly candid, because most of the writers are discriminating, experienced travelers and diners. But when I read the litany of five star reviews about 502 South Main Street B&B, I wondered to myself, how can it have 99% five stars and only one 4 star? My... More

My grand-daughter and I stayed at 502 this past week-end and cannot find words to express how much we enjoyed the entire experience. Russ and Mary Stuart have the knack for making you feel welcome and right at home. Their home is beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable. Our room was just what we needed, and all the little extras that... More

I was on business and stayed here for two nights. The house is utterly charming, beautifully decorated and with every modern convenience. Mary and Rus could not have been more welcoming. Refreshment on arrival and a delicious breakfast. One of the most comfortable beds I have slept in for a long time.

We stayed at 502 South Main this past weekend and found the experience to be one of our best in traveling. The owners were welcoming, friendly, and so accommodating. Everything about our room was perfect! The afternoon tea and homemade cookies were exactly what we needed after our sightseeing walk. The breakfast the following morning covered all of the bases...

I had my second stay with Mary Stuart and Russ when I was guest-lecturing at W&L this past week. I can only add my voice to the many here who praise their hospitality and kindness, all the little extras, the fabulous breakfast, the lovely comfortable and well-appointed rooms, the perfect location. An absolute delight.

Mary Stuart and Russ are fantastic hosts! They were very friendly and accommodating to our needs. Baked treats awaited us upon arrival. Homemade breakfasts every morning which were delicious; special consideration was given to dietary requests. Our room was quite cozy and quaint with a very comfortable bed. The bathroom was clean and fresh. We had a wonderful time visiting... More

Oh my! Just perfect! Our daughter and I stayed at this wonderful B and B while visiting W&L. The innkeepers are so sweet and have paid attention to every detail. Our room was clean, comfortable and so convenient to everything. Toiletries were included with treats and a turndown service with chocolates. Hot cider upon our arrival with homemade cranberry caramel... More
