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!

We just stayed at the Gay Street Inn. This was our third visit; the first under the care of the new owners. We have loved all three of our visits and look forward to going back again in the future. The rooms are large, comfortable and beautifully decorated. The hospitality is warm and friendly. And the breakfast is wonderful! We... More

We spent one night at the Gay Street Inn and loved every minute. So relaxing and lovely. Innkeepers Wendy and Gary are wonderful hosts. Beautiful garden and wonderful front porch. Thanks for a memorable stay. We'll be back!

As regular guests at B&Bs around the country for the past 30 years, my wife and I have experienced quite the range in service, hospitality, and quality of breakfasts, from barely adequate to exceptional. We were pleasantly surprised to discover the Gay Street Inn and its extraordinarily gracious hosts, Gary and Wendy. The Inn is located at the end of... More

This was a wonderful escape for the day and evening especially since Washington, Va doesn't have cell service! Gary and Wendy were wonderful hosts. Their B&B is warm and inviting. The stuffed French toast and coffee were awesome. They added to our celebration weekend.

My husband and I celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary at the Inn of Little Washington and and spent the evening at the Gay Street Inn. Both of us loved the dinner and found our evening at the Inn to be the perfect selection. Our experience at the B & B was stellar. The home of Gary and Wendy Aichele, Innkeepers... More

While Gary and Wendy started off lovely, handing my husband a toilet plunger in a garage bag to fix the toilet, instead of taking care of it themselves really disturbing. After saying the canned pears that were served for breakfast were too sweet for me, I was then grunted at for the rest of breakfast service. And even the cheapest... More

GayStreetInnkeeper, Owner at Gay Street Inn, responded to this review

As Owners/Innkeepers, we do our very best to meet the expectations of every one of our guests. Sometimes, however, it's more about the guests than about their experience at the Gay Street Inn. We typically do not respond to guest reviews, but this case is an exception. Shampoo/conditioner and specialty soaps are provided in every guest room, and additional amenities... More

We, like many others, were looking for a nice inn in Washington, VA for our stay when we ate at the Inn at Little Washington. Gay Street is a nice combination of an historic home with modern conveniences. It is located just a block or so (a nice walk after dinner) from the Inn at Little Washington. We enjoyed spending...

Gary and Wendy greeted us cheerfully and even sang a little welcome song for us. They have good reasons to take pride in their small, cozy and quiet B&B in a corner of quaint Washington, VA. Our room was spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated. A lavish breakfast was served in a sunny room with a lovely garden view. Located a... More
