As is most everyone else (except the locals), we were there for dinner at the Inn, We've been several times, and stayed in a variety of accommodations, from the Inn to other local B&B's to a house in the country. The GSI was the most pleasant overnight stay yet. The innkeepers are welcoming and gregarious, a charming couple. Our room... More

What a delightful little inn! Everything was picture perfect. A welcoming atmosphere in a serene and comfortable setting. The art work is well chosen and appealing. The gurgling fountain near the front porch lends an added touch to just lazing about.

My wife and I were headed for the famous Inn at Little Washington to eat, and chose to spend the night here. The hamlet, Washington, VA (so-called because George was a surveyor in the area), is gorgeous. The couple that operate GSI entered the inn keeping business just over two years ago. They retain their enthusiasm for welcoming visitors who... More

After making dinner reservations at the Inn at Little Washington, we were on the search for a convenient place to rest our heads. With a Google search of B&B's of the area, I was able to make a choice and secure our reservation over the web and received confirmation and check-in instructions almost immediately. The occasion was the celebration of... More

Worth a long trip from Oregon to enjoy this beautiful area and fantastic inn. The rooms are squeaky clean and beautifully appointed. The owner hosts are smart, kind, and generous. The beds are wonderful, as is the food. I look forward to coming back as often as possible.

This B&B is at the top of its game. Unlike others in the town it is at the end of a street, so there is no through traffic. The owners are genuinely, genuinely out to make you welcome. They upgraded us without mentioning it, had port and chocolates ready for our return from the Inn at Little Washington (dinner -... More

The Gay Street Inn offers the perfect setting for a relaxing break or respite either before or after dinner at The Inn at Little Washington. We recently used it for both! After four days with our 2 and 9 y/o granddaughters we treated ourselves to two nights at the Inn and dinner at The Inn at Little Washington(truly a treat).... More

On somewhat short notice, I was invited to have dinner with my brother & his wife at the Inn at Little Washington ; they included my son & his wife in the invitation as well. While they were staying for several nights, we would stay a single night. Fortunately, I discovered the Gay Street Inn! A charming, comfortable B&B, only... More

Upon arriving at the Gay Street Inn, we were greeted by Wendy and Gary and shown to our charming room. Since we were interested in the history of the inn, Gary showed us around the property, with details about it's past. The landscape was of interest to us, too, and Gary was knowledgeable about the plants on the property. Wendy... More
