Mary and Russ were so generous and kind as hosts that you at once feel at ease. The house is decorated with exquisite taste and admirable restraint. If you are interested in art, there are paintings after Van Gogh and Gauguin properly in conversation across an archway. If ask about going to VMI campus, Russ will point out a painting... More

Mary Stuart and Russ were the perfect hosts. They greeted us with a smile and provided the best hospitality imaginable. The Inn was very comfortable, clean, and beautifully decorated for Christmas. Mary Stuart offered us hot tea by the fire and we were able to review menus of the local restaurants - most of which are within walking distance of... More

502 South Main is a gem! Located within easy walking distance of downtown Lexington, this B&B is beautifully and comfortably decorated and showcases the owners' eclectic interests and global travels. The breakfast is plentiful, delicious, and healthful. The innkeepers hit just the right balance -- warm and helpful without being overbearing.

Admittedly, we have not stayed at tons of B&Bs, particularly in our younger years traveling with children. Now that we are empty-nesters, it is a trend that is on the upswing for us and we were so glad to include 502 South Main in our experiences. The reviews are spot on when they discuss the beautiful and spacious room and... More

We stayed at this B&B twice while traveling to and from the NC mountains. Russ and Mary Stuart are excellent hosts. The rooms are big and clean. The cookies are not to be missed. Russ and Mary are very engaging hosts, and went out of their way to make us feel very comfortable in their home. The B&B is within... More

I had a very pleasant mid-week break at 502 South Main. Mary Stuart and Russ were lovely hosts. Their beautiful home is an easy stroll to everything in Lexington. In fact, I parked my car and didn't touch it until I was ready to leave. I hope I can return soon.

... on how a B&B should be run. Russ and Mary Stuart were gracious hosts, making us feel welcomed and pampered. Our room was lovely and quiet, nicely appointed, in a B&B within easy walking distance to downtown. The parlor had a variety of books, games and magazines, and the breakfast was great. What stands out most, however, is the... More

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights as we made our way down the Blue Ridge Parkway. 502 is situated just a short drive from the Parkway and the historic town is an ideal place for a stopover. The accommodation is situated at the top of the Main Street and has parking to the rear. On arrival we... More

My husband and I visited Lexington to revisit the home of my youth. 502 S Main is located just a couple of doors from where I lived. It was an important and poignant visit for me and the hosts, Mary Stuart and Russ, made us feel like family. The food, the company, all the little touches that make you feel... More
