Everything at 502 is perfectly done and maintained. Large beautiful rooms. Friendly and informative owners. Very nice bathroom. Fireplace. Just lovely. The location is perfect for exploring the beautiful town and visiting the historic sites as well as many shops and restaurants. We have stayed in many B&Bs and this is one of the best. Oh the breakfast was outstanding... More

We often stop in Lexington for lunch on trips to northern Virginia so we decided to overnight there on our return trip from the Outer Banks. We found Mary Stuart's B&B on the internet and after a phone call we felt like it was a very nice place. And, we were not disappointed. The spacious room had a very comfortable... More

Mary Stuart and Russ are delightful. They are very attentive and really care about your stay at the inn and within Lexington. The accommodations are comfortable, clean, up to date - just beautiful. The breakfasts are wonderful. The warm homemade cookies are the best. I have stayed at many B&B's across the US. This is one of the best.

This is my second time to stay at 502 S. Main and it was wonderful. Mary Stuart and Russ have a beautiful bed and breakfast. My daughter and I were touring Washington and Lee and we stayed in the South Room which has elegant designer furnishings. We were greeted with lemonade and homemade cookies. Mary Stuart's 3 course breakfast is... More

We just returned from a wedding in Lexington, VA. Our stay while there was at a charming B and B on Main St with gracious hosts Russ and Mary Stuart. We chose the historic home from an internet search and our accommodations greatly exceeded our expectations. The decor was tastefully appointed without being stuffy or overcrowded. Our north room offered... More

I searched B&B's for Lexington, VA online not having any experience with B&B's or hotel accommodations in Lexington. We hit the jackpot...the place was beautiful, it was an easy walk to both VMI & W&L campuses and the breakfast was amazing! I highly recommend this establishment to anyone looking for a great spot to stay in Lexington.

Gave us great recommendations for dinner (The Bistro on Main) Showed us great walking path behind and to the Universities in town. Slept like a baby. What more can... More
