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

We enjoyed our one night stay. The bed was incredibly comfortable, the port wine was very good, and the breakfast was just right. Our room was on the first floor and was very convenient. Wendy and Gary were attentive, but unobtrusive, hosts.

Gary & Wendy are the perfect hosts! They are so welcoming and totally committed to serving their guests well. I was there for two days on a business trip and got in late the first night. Even though they had dinner plans up the street, they took their time helping me settle in and feel comfortable. They helped by printing... More

A last minute decision to stay over in beautiful Rappahannock County rather than drive back to DC brought me back to my favorite resting spot located in the center of Little Washington, walking distance to all the town's many attractions including the famous Inn at Little Washington, the top destination for food on the East Coast. Luckily, there was room... More

Gary and Wendy were very accommodating and hospitable. Greeted us warmly, explained everything, and even gave us great suggestions for nearby hikes and activities. Breakfast both days we were there was awesome as well. They even printed up a map of the hike they had suggested without us asking for it and gave it to us during our breakfast. They... More

We stayed at the b&b as part of my 40th anniversary celebration and dinner at the Inn at Little Washington. I'm so glad we picked this place -- it was a wonderful choice. When we arrived, Wendy and Gary warmly greeted us and immediately remembered my birthday! We stayed in the Mountain View Room, which was very spacious. I particularly... More

Gay Street Inn owners, Wendy and Gary, take great care of you in their charming, comfortable B&B. We truly felt at home with them. The food was delicious, with artful presentation. All their restaurant and attraction recommendations were spot-on, and their knowledge of the people in the area made it all so interesting. Delightful! We'll be back for wine on... More

We recently stayed at the Gay Street Inn for a special occasion. The inn-keepers were very welcoming and the beds super comfortable. Breakfast the next morning was delicious. Very quiet and romantic - we could not have asked for more!
