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

Great overall experience. Greeted with hot cider and homemade oatmeal cookies. Huge tasty breakfast served by the fire by the pleasant host Mary. Quiet location a short walk to everything in Lexington. Beautiful house with comfortable spotless rooms and comfy beds.Will return on my next trip to W & L.

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

We stayed just one night at this lovely B & B as we drove the Appalachian national parks route. Our very spacious room and ensuite were beautifully decorated with great attention to detail. Mary Stewart made us so welcome and was on hand with helpful recommendations for dinner in town. Breakfast was absolutely delicious, if calorific! Lexington is a beautiful... More

With only one night to spend Russ and Mary Stuart Harlow made our stay memorable. They made us feel special, they cared enough to ask about food prefrances, helped with our luggage, showed us our beautiful bed and bath. We were waited on the next morning with a healthy breakfast. The home is wonderfully restored, with original paintings throughout with... More

After a long days drive it was such a pleasure to be greeted cheerfully by our hostess. She led us to our room and it was lovely; We were so pleased to find two comfortable chairs in front of the fireplace and a small fridge that was stocked with soft drinks and some snacks. Just perfect! We had dinner at... More

This was our second stay at 502 South Main, and we felt just as happy here as we did a year ago when we happened to find ourselves in Lexington. Lexington itself, and the surrounding area, provides much to be seen and enjoyed, including historical sites and excellent restaurants. Speaking of great food, Mary Stuart provides a breakfast that is... More

This place is right on the edge of the historic downtown, in quiet and green area. It makes great first impression of the town - friendly, tasty, tastefully decorated and peaceful. Just what Lexington seems to be to us. All downtown destinations are in walking distance. When you walk down Main st. - you see probably the best view to... More

The second my wife and I walked into 502 S. Main we were greeted by Mary Stewart and Alfie (a friend's dog that was being dog watched) and were treated like family! This is a very cozy and charming B&B with great attention to detail. After taking care of our luggage Mary Stewart informed us about the local restaurants that... More

Visiting Lexington last week for a horse show, 502 South Main was recommended by a friend familiar with the area. Are we ever glad we listened! From the minute we walked in, we felt relaxed and at home. Russ and Mary are very knowledgeable and proud of their town, providing helpful tips on where to eat, places to visit, etc.... More
