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

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

We got a table at the famous Inn at Little Washington and so we choose The Gay Street Inn as it is in walking distance and had excellent ratings. Yes these ratings are all true. Wendy and Gary are lovely hosts, the room was very cosy and the bathroom equipped with everything you need. They even prepared sweets and Port... More
