502 South Main is simply the perfect B&B. Mary Stuart and Russ have thought of everything: comfortable beds, beautiful bedrooms, delicious breakfasts, luxurious linens, elegant baths, warm welcomes. The location is perfect, a one-minute drive into town or a leisurely stroll if preferred. They were always available to recommend a hike or a restaurant yet were not intrusive in any... More

My husband and I stayed at 502 South Main recently to celebrate our 43rd wedding anniversary. It was exceptional! Mary Stuart and Russ met us with smiles and homemade cookies and lemonade delivered to our room. We stayed in the South Room which was large, well appointed, and met all our needs. A basket of snacks and mini-refrigerator with soft... More

I came for an event in Lexington and was simply blown away by the beauty and touches of class everywhere! In speaking with the hosts Russ and Mary Stuart, I found out that all of the paintings in the B&B are done by family members on BOTH sides! It took me some time to inspect all of them and admire...

Quietest B&B we've ever experienced. Luxury touches, towel warmers in the bath, Comfy robes and slippers, and a Keurig coffee maker in the room.(By the way, breakfast was wonderful too!) Easy walking distance to quaint downtown and colleges.

Just back from picking up my rising third-year cadet from VMI, stayed at 502 Main for a few days while in town. Outstanding stay in a beautiful inn, with wonderful inn owners. As discriminating north easterners, who have sampled a number of inns/hotels in the area over the past 2 years, we have nothing but great things to say about... More

Spent 2 nights as a girl's getaway with my mom. Very clean and decorated with simple elegance. Our hosts were very accommodating and great at giving suggestions for things to do in the area. The breakfast was superb and the room was clean with many nice amenities - we loved Mary Stuart's biscotti!

I brought my girlfriend here for her 40th birthday over the Memorial Day weekend. It was the perfect choice. Great property, great owners, great attention to detail. The room was lovely with a stunning four-poster bed and beautiful step-in tiled shower. The rest of the house is tastefully decorated and arranged. Breakfasts were delicious and filling. This is how a... More

This review is far too long overdue as we stayed at the 502 South Main in March. Without a doubt this is the absolute top notch B&B experience. I'm afraid I won't be able to adequately describe the goodness of it, but I will try. Our stay was nothing short of perfection. I really can not praise Mary Stuart and... More

Traveling through Virginia we stayed two nights at 502. The couple who own this B&B are open and friendly without being intrusive. They were full of information about the area and helpful in every way. We enjoyed sitting on the front porch at the end of the day. The house is lovely without being over decorated as many places are.... More

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.
